Aesthetic Consultation

Consultations offer you time to discuss your present health status, any inflammatory issues, skincare regimes and goals for your skincare. Consultations are an important step in building your relationship with us. We spend the time to listen to your concerns and your reasoning for seeking guidance.

During this appointment you can expect our aesthetic nurse to use advanced technology to see the effects of UV damage below the visual surface of your skin. Taking into account your skin’s condition and your goals, we will review the different treatments and preventive measures that may be helpful. Together we will create a unique treatment plan, crafted by taking into account your availability for downtime, budget and importance of skin care.

Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser

Sun exposure combined with the natural aging process causes skin to lose its youthful glow. In the past, patients would choose between a procedure that offered great results but required a lengthy recovery or a procedure with a fast recovery and marginal results. Halo provides the best of both worlds combining the potential for great results with minimal downtime. Halo is designed to eliminate years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth. Halo is a great choice to restore a younger luminous glow.

Halo is the world’s first and only Hybrid Fractional Laser, which combines two wavelengths creating a strong synergistic effect, resembling ablative results with non-ablative downtime. Ablative downtime can require days of applying a skin barrier cream, where Halo treatments can allow patients to apply makeup the next day. Patients will appear with bad sunburn for a couple of days, and then small brown spots will exfoliate off within the week.

Halo precisely targets damage to skin including:

  • Discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin dullness
  • Laxity
  • Scar refinement

Photo Light Rejuvenation – BroadBand Light (BBL™)

BroadBand Light (BBL) is the most versatile light device that provides skin renewal, permanent hair reduction, targets sun spots, diminishes vascular lesions and helps control acne. BBL uses non-invasive pulses to attack many targets. This intense pulse light therapy can provide benefits on any area of the body.

Short-term BBL treatments provide illuminating skin but long-term results are proving some significant changes. BBL combats the signs of aging by stimulating youthful cellular function and lifting visual oxidative damage to the skin. BBL also stimulates collagen production helping the skin look younger. The top-layers of skin will darken immediately after treatment but will exfoliate off within one week. BBL can be used alone or in combination with other laser treatments. Treatment goals and options will be thoroughly explored during consultation.
