SmartLIPO Laser Body Sculpting
You've dieted, you've exercised, yet parts of your body have simply refused to tone up. Now you can change all that with this one time procedure: Smartlipo Laser Body Sculpting is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that does something no fitness routine in the world can: permanently destroy fat cells. Since your body only has a finite amount of these cells —they don't come back. The procedure disrupts the fat cells through a thermal and photodisruptive action - heating and shattering the fat cell membrane. As an added benefit, the treatment also stimulates tissue tightening through bulk thermal heating and tissue coagulation.
CO2RE Intima: Womens Wellness Treatment
Designed for women who want to reduce some of the signs of childbearing and aging in their vaginal area such as dryness, painful intercourse, and urinary incontinence. This includes post childbearing and peri and post postmenopausal women, women who desire enhancement in sexual functioning and a better sexual experience. Regardless of age, women can experience changes in vaginal wellness or appearance that can affect quality of life in unexpected ways, leading to unpleasant symptoms. CO2RE Intima is a medical laser that delivers controlled CO2 energy to the vaginal or vulva tissue – so cells make more collagen – improving skin tone, texture and appearance.
If you are interested in learning more, please call the office to set up a consultation. Consultations for CO2RE intima are 45 minutes. This includes an internal exam which is $75.
If you are only interested in an informational session the consultation will be 30 minutes without the exam fee. The exam will need to be done prior to procedure should you decide to go forward (at which time the $75 exam fee will be due).
It is also helpful to our providers to have a recent copy of your last PAP smear results to bring to the visit- this will be a requirement prior to receiving treatment.
Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking & waxing provide only temporary relief. Laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and other areas. Laser hair removal has been in use for some time. Stable hair loss has been reported as far back as a decade, and Candela, maker of GentleLASE™ has clearance through the FDA to claim permanence. Most patients experience an 80-90% reduction in the amount of hair in a given area after approximately 4-6 treatments.

Neck, Chin & Jowl Tightening
Laser tightening of the neck, chin and jowls is a minimally invasive treatment that tightens skin and targets neck lines. Laser or radiofrequency technologies effectively place heat energy into the dermis where it can produce a significant increase in both collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal disruption. For clients with excess fat in these areas, a laser will be utilized to disrupt fat cells through a thermal and photodisruptive action - heating the cell membrane and stimulating tissue tightening through bulk thermal heating and tissue coagulation.
Laser Tattoo Removal
We use the gold standard Candela AlexTriVantage Q-switched laser to remove tattoos from most any area of the body and on all skin types. The AlexTriVantage laser incorporates three laser wavelengths (755nm, 1064nm, 532nm) to allow us to treat all colors including blue and green tattoos. The tattoo pigment absorbs the laser energy, fragmenting the dye. The body’s immune system then removes the shattered pigment over the next several weeks, leading to visible lightening of the tattoo.
Laser ALA Acne Body Treatment
Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is produced naturally in our bodies. Combined with laser light therapy, it is a safe and effective treatment for acne that has been unresponsive to the more usual therapies. ALA treatment is an option that can give significant, long-lasting results. Not only are the bacteria killed, but the sebaceous glands are altered so that long-lasting improvements can be achieved.
Body Laser Pigment & Vascular Treatment
One of the most evident signs of aging and sun damage is increased vascularity and pigmentation. These fine red spots, vessels or brown spots can appear on almost all parts of the body and can be safely and effectively treated. A specific laser system is chosen depending on the lesion. The Practitioner combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a light pulse treatment to the targeted area. It treats a broad range of vessels a wide variety of pigment; such as red spots, brown spots (also known as "liver spots" or "age spots") birth marks, and some moles. These blotchy brownish patches often increase over time and make us look and feel much older than our years.
