A Word from Your Laser Services Specialist

Lasers provide a wide array of aesthetic enhancement solutions, from wrinkle treatment to permanent reduction of undesirable hair. Lasers can even help patients prolong the effects of aging, thereby delaying surgery. They are also a perfect adjunct to certain facial plastic surgery procedures because they enhance the results of surgery by keeping the skin looking young and supple.

Laser skin resurfacing

Smoother, firmer, clearer skin: Those are the benefits of laser skin resurfacing. Lasers work two ways to rejuvenate the skin. The treatment removes the surface layers of skin (epidermis) with extreme accuracy – diminishing or eliminating damaged, blemished or wrinkled skin. At the same time, the laser heats the lower layers of skin (dermis), activating the production of new collagen.

Cosmetic enhancements of laser skin resurfacing include the following:

  • Refine aged skin
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Correct sun damage and liver spots
  • Improve complexion
  • Diminish scars, birthmarks and irregular pigmentation
  • Treat warts
  • Complement a facelift

Laser hair removal

Repeatedly shaving, plucking, bleaching, waxing or using electrolysis for unwanted hair becomes a nuisance. If you rely on a professional to remove the hair, it also becomes a constant financial drain. With laser hair removal, you can achieve a permanent reduction in undesirable hair. It is non-invasive, gentle, and treats large areas efficiently. Our Tucson laser hair removal system uses advanced, low-energy laser technology to precisely heat hairs down to the follicle, permanently disabling the follicle.

Laser hair removal is a popular treatment for both women and men. Men often choose laser hair removal to reduce hair on the back of the neck or the chest, and women can eliminate hair on the upper lip, legs or bikini area.
