have shown that laser hair removal can reduce hair counts by up to 90%.
During the first single laser session, about 10% to 40% of the treated
hairs may be permanently removed. By the third treatment, as much as
30% to 70% of hair is reduced. With repeated treatments (i.e., anywhere
from four to six additional treatments), patients observe as much as
90% in their hair reduction.* Although a few hairs sometimes remain,
they are often finer and lighter in color. Results vary from patient to
patient as some people respond better to treatment than others.
In addition, laser hair removal treatment may take more than one
session for the best results. Why? Laser hair removal is most effective
in removing unwanted hair during Anagen, the hair’s active growth
phase. During this phase, the hair has enough dark melanin pigment
necessary to be targeted and removed by the laser. Since, at any given
time, 20% of hairs are dormant, it is important to get hair removal
treatments at the right time to achieve the most effective and desired
long-term results. This may require at least four to six laser
sessions, usually scheduled every two to three months, to remove hair
that enters the growth phase.
The Clear 100 Blue Light Acne Treatment can be used to treat acne with outstanding results. It is a unique therapeutic light that treats moderate inflammatory acne. This high intensity light destroys the most common bacteria that causes acne easily, quickly and safely with no patient discomfort, side effects, or downtime. This treatment effectively clears most moderate inflammatory acne in four to six weeks. Recent scientific studies have also shown that this procedure is very effective*
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can also be used to treat acne, with or without the application of levulinic acid and is termed Photodynamic Acne Therapy. Levulinic acid is applied directly to the skin and causes the skin to be more sensitive to light. When the IPL is performed, the light activates the acid and helps to destroy the bacteria.
Generally, these therapies get the best results using two different methods. They either:
Damage the sebaceous or oil glands that are the cause of most acne or,
Target the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria that is behind the irritation.

BOTOX and Juvederm are very popular treatments and have great success rates in treating the physical signs of facial aging. With the recent popularity of these cosmetic treatments, advancements have been made to ensure that patients can return to an active life only minutes after an injection of either. BOTOX is a botulin toxin A that paralyzes facial muscles on the surface. It reduces the nerve impulses that cause the muscle contractions that form wrinkles between the eyes, forehead, and crows feet. The effects generally last for up to four months and while the results can be seen after only a few days, they generally take over a week to be fully noticed.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler that is particularly effective at restoring volume the lips and sculpted curves to the cheeks. Juvederm is also effective to smooth nasolabial fold lines and can fill and/or smooth acne scars in some places. It is an FDA Approved filler that lasts up to one year after initial treatment. There is a possibility of swelling at the injection site that goes away in 72 hours. One study undertaken showed a 96% correction rate for wrinkles and other unwanted facial features with Juvederm.*
