ProFractional Therapy is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is performed in your physician’s office and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.
ProFractional uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. The skin’s wound healing response created new collagen which adds firmness and resilience to the skin.
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though many people also treat the chest and hands.
ProFractional therapy is widely regarded as a comfortable procedure, usually tolerated with the use of a topical numbing cream.
Immediately following the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Our Skin Health Consultant will advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations.
Complete healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work and apply makeup a day or two after treatment. There will likely be some swelling that will subside within several days following the treatment.
As your skin heals in the days following treatment, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodelling that occurs during the 4 to 6 months following treatment.
A MicroLaserPeel removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision and depth. The procedure is performed at the Clinic and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.
The MicroLaserPeel’s beam is scanned over a treatment area to remove a very thin layer of the skin. Removing the top layer eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area. The result is a healthier-looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles and improved color evenness. Patients often say that it looks like their skin went from looking tired to vibrant.
The SkinTyte treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire surface. SkinTyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The end result is a youthful appearance.
The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. This process promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat also initiated the body’s natural healing process, which created a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse providing the patient a comfortable and safe procedure.
New Pain Free Laser Hair Removal
In the past, remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis or chemical depilatories. Some are painful. Some are messy, and all are only temporary.
Laser hair removal is a more effective solution.
The High Speed LightSheer DUET uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair and with more comfort than other methods.
The High Speed LightSheer DUET is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.
The LightSheer DUET offers your physician two handpiece choices depending on your needs. The LightSheer High Speed handpiece uses breakthrough vacuum assisted technology in combination with diode laser light to allow rapid and comfortable treatment of large areas. A back or legs can now be treated in 15 to 20 minutes, without the need for topical numbing creams. The LightSheer DUET also offers your physician the Gold Standard LightSheer ET handpiece with ChillTip® cooling for smaller areas. The LightSheer DUET allows your physician to truly customize treatment for your hair type, skin type and lifestyle.
Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments. This is because the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage (referred to as anagen), and all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time.

Excessive sweating. One may not know it's an actual medical condition. Doctors call it hyperhidrosis and define it as "sweating beyond what is necessary to cool the body." Excessive sweating can have a serious impact on your self-confidence, clothing choices, personal relationships, and even your career. But today's treatments offer hope. Innovative surgical and non-surgical approaches provide effective treatment for the affected areas.
Treatment options for hyperhidrosis will depend on which of the following 2 types you have:
- Primary hyperhidrosis, also called focal hyperhidrosis, affects specific areas such as the underarms, palms, feet, and face. It usually begins in childhood or adolescence and is caused by a malfunction within the sympathetic nervous system that overstimulates the nerves that cause the sweat glands to produce more sweat.
- Secondary hyperhidrosis, also called generalized hyperhidrosis, usually affects the entire body. It is caused by medication or another medical condition such as menopause, metabolic disorders, neurological disorders, or infections.

The shape of the filler is maintained using the body's own moisture, and the effect remains for six to twelve months in most patients.
