Laser Services

The Skin Clinic Medspa offers custom laser treatments that address your specific skincare concerns.

Lasers rejuvenate the skin by using light energy. Damaged skin cells are destroyed, while healthy skin cells are preserved. In addition to safeguarding healthy skin cells, laser skin procedures promote collagen growth. As a result, the skin’s texture and tone improve, while fine lines and wrinkles are reduced. Laser treatments are used at The Skin Clinic MedSpa for different reasons, based on your individual needs.

Laser treatments are known to be safe for all types of skin. Laser treatments are a long-term approach rather than a quick fix. It takes longer for laser treatments to show results than other skin treatments, but they are worth the wait! For more information on our laser services or to schedule an appointment, don’t hesitate to get in touch with The Skin Clinic MedSpa.

IPL

Pollution, the sun, strong harsh cleansers, and aging cause your skin to become wrinkled and dull. IPL Photofacial restores skin from the inside out, and you do not have to have older-looking skin. In addition, IPL is a treatment that can multi-task. It takes are of age spots to sun damage and everything in between. Areas that IPL treats include the chest, face, and back.

IPL Photofacial uses short blasts of high-intensity light to produce firm, younger-looking skin with even tone and texture. The light energy used by IPL Photofacial gradually heats the skin’s upper layers, and the absorbed heat stimulates your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. The treatment is non-invasive, safe, and gentle. There is usually no need for a topical anesthetic, and there is little recovery time.

IPL can treat:
• Pigmented Lesions
• Vascular Lesions or small blood vessels
• Freckles
• Age Spots
• Rosacea
• Uneven Skin Texture

Before treatment, your skincare provider will suggest you stay out of the sun. If you have just gotten a tan, you will need to wait for the tan to fade before coming in for IPL treatments. In addition, you will need to avoid medications that make you sensitive to light. Always consult a doctor, however, before stopping prescribed medications.

Treatments are quick and take about 30-60 minutes, depending on your skin issues. During and after treatment, the skin may appear red and swollen. Red and swollen skin is a normal reaction and will disappear in a few hours. You may, however, feel skin warming and some discomfort during treatment.

After treatment, you will need to avoid scented lotions and creams, exfoliants, and do not scrub your face. Freckles and sunspots will initially get darker, but they flake off and fade within one to three weeks. Your skin might feel sunburned, and it is recommended to use an ice pack if the feeling is uncomfortable.

NeoClear Acne Treatment

Acne is an inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands characterized by comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and pimples that typically appear on the face, back, and chest. In severe cases, this can also include cysts and nodules that cause scarring. Acne is a worldwide problem: 80% of all people between the ages 11 and 30 suffer from it. While there is no one therapy that is guaranteed to cure every patient of acne, there is now an innovative new tool that can address your acne problems like no other technology currently available.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoos are still popular to show personal messages and respect, and because tattoos are “cool.” As time goes on, however, these tattoos may become less meaningful.

Tattoo regret is experienced due to relationship changes, employment consequences, or overall life changes and personal growth.

Tattoo removal was once highly unsuccessful, surgical, painful, and scaring was common. However, laser technology has improved tattoo removal making the procedures faster, less painful, and easier. In addition, specific laser treatments for tattoo removal eliminate a wide array of tattoo pigments, and laser technology breaks down tattoo ink and doesn’t scar where the tattoo is removed.

Laser tattoo removal technology uses intense energy targeted to different ink particles to break up pigments into small pieces. Breaking down ink particles allows your immune system to remove the ink naturally. Green is the most difficult tattoo color to remove, and blues and yellows come in a close second. Black is the easiest color to remove.

Laser treatments work at different depths in the skin, and multiple sessions are needed to get all the ink. Tattoo artists use permanent ink, and inks are injected below the skin’s surface. Therefore, removing a tattoo is more complicated than applying the artwork. Removing the ink may take six to ten sessions of laser therapy.

 When tattoos are drawn, the tattoo artist pushes needles and ink to the bottom layer of the skin. Tattoos may somewhat fade due to time and the body’s immune system recognizing tattoo ink as a foreign substance. Therefore, your immune system will attempt to remove the ink particles. However, the tattoo will never completely fade away without help.

 Tattoo removal can be intensified by the tattoo’s density, depth, composition, location, lifestyle, and health choices. Therefore, it is advised that you maintain a healthy lifestyle, exercise, and massage the tattoo area to keep blood circulation strong during and after the tattoo removal sessions.

NeoClear by Aerolase uses 650 Microsecond Technology® to offer a new approach that has been proven to have highly effective, long-term effects on active acne (including problematic conditions, adult acne, and acne on the torso), with low recurrence rates. LightPod lasers’ light-based therapy offers an effective, alternative treatment approach for all acne patients of any age or skin type, but it is particularly ideal for patients who either have not responded to traditional therapies or are unwilling or unable to take oral medications like isotretinoin.
