Laser Treatments

The word “laser” is an acronym for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation”. We use this safe radiated light on the skin to provide skin improvements, such as laser hair removal, collagen production, skin tightening, correction of skin discoloration, age spots and broken capillaries at our Minneapolis area medical spa. We can also improve fine lines and acne scars. Lasers are a great way to improve the health of your skin naturally.

Soprano® Hair Reduction System

The Soprano laser procedure provides noninvasive permanent hair reduction for unwanted hair on the face, back, legs, bikini line or any other body area. The pain-free procedure is designed to remove unwanted hair comfortably and with fewer visits. Seven treatments in four- to six-week intervals are recommended.

Soprano technology gradually heats the hair follicles under the skin until they no longer produce hair. The laser is in constant motion, making your treatment area wider, which allows sessions to go quickly, safely and comfortably. The Pain free hair reduction treatment is suitable for all skin types, including darker skin types.

Photorejuvenation

Photorejuvenation is a popular cosmetic procedure to counter the effects of the sun and environment. Skin damage appears as brown pigmentation or age spots, redness (broken capillaries) and a dull appearance on the face and body.

Photorejuvenation or broadband light (BBL) uses a series of light pulses gently applied over the skin. The light penetrates the sub-skin layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or by pigmentation (brown spots). The heat impairs the vessel or lesion and the body begins the natural healing and clearing process.

The pulsed light gently and precisely heats the target skin, causing little or no skin damage or discomfort. Photorejuvenation treatments are 15 to 30 minutes in length.

Treatment works best with a series of three to five sessions. Depending on the amount of sun damage, most patients see a significant improvement in two to three treatments, others may require more.

This procedure can reduce brown spots, freckles and stains and can also smooth roughly textured skin. Stimulates cell turnover and promotes collagen renewal. Recommend four to six treatments in 4-week intervals.

SkinTyte

SkinTyte™ uses infra-red light to deeply heat dermal collagen to improve the appearance of sagging skin with a quick and comfortable treatment.  Gentle energy pulses heat the soft tissue, initiating your body’s natural healing process, stimulating collagen leading to a more youthful appearance.  Treatment areas are lower face, eyes, neck, décolleté, arms, abdomen, and knees.  SkinTyte is safe for all skin types and can be combined with many of our other skin services.

Micro Laser Peel™

Micro Laser Peel or Nano Laser Peel, is a procedure that removes the outermost layers of the skin. This treatment will improve skin texture, mild wrinkles, scars, keratosis, and sun damage. While results vary from patient to patient, most will see significant improvement with one treatment.

Micro Laser Peels/Nano peels have little to no downtime, depending on the depth of the treatment. Most patients can tolerate the treatment with a topical numbing cream and can resume regular activities in three to four days.

ProFractional™ laser treatment

Profractional therapy is a wonderful way to improve skin wrinkles, scars, and sun damage with minimal downtime. The laser beam targets the treated areas to stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, younger looking skin.

The certified laser technician will apply a topical numbing cream to the treated area, prior to treatment. Then using the Profractional Laser, the laser energy will pulse into the skin, creating micro channels to the dermis. While exceptional results can be obtained from one treatment, results vary. This procedure has minimal down time and most patients can resume daily activities in two to three days.
