CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Beautiful, even skin with laser therapy

Time can often have negative effects on our skin. Aging, acne, and sun exposure can cause lasting damage. Laser skin resurfacing is a technique using the power of light to bring skin back to its original state. Keeping skin looking young and healthy is our goal. This method treats:
  • wrinkles
  • acne scars
  • age spots
  • facial blemishes
  • stretch marks
  • scars
  • sun damage
  • rosacea
  • hyperpigmentation


Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Using the power of light to smooth the skin

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treats skin for various needs. The technique is useful in treatments from hair removal to photo facials. A handheld laser passes across the skin in the area or areas treated. The laser treatment can re-tone the skin in areas that have seen sun damage, age spots, or rosacea. IPL is used to treat pigmentation issues. Many issues can cause the skin to become discolored. This treatment helps to correct that.
IPL is also used for hair removal but will need several treatments. It only works on active hair follicles, thus needs to be repeated to treat them all. Not all hair follicles are active at a given time, so more treatments are necessary for this purpose. IPL works best on people with darker hair relative to their skin tone. The laser more easily picks up on hair with more contrast to the skin. We do have different lasers geared towards different hair and skin types when this is not the case.
Laser Hair Removal

Fast and effective hair removal with Chicago laser

Laser hair removal is a procedure that can remove the unwanted body or facial hair. A non-invasive treatment like this is far more comfortable and less time consuming than shaving or waxing. It is also permanent! It leaves the skin smoother and silkier than other methods.
There is no downtime or time off of work required. This treatment is pain-free.

Revealing a layer of newer, smoother skin

Dermaplaning is a blade technique performed by a medical aesthetician. A 10 gauge scalpel is used to remove the top layer of the skin. The dulling, dead skin cells peel away to reveal a smoother complexion. It might sound scary, but it isn’t. In the right hands, the process can be pain-free and almost therapeutic.
Many Hollywood actresses and other on-screen celebrities are advocates for dermaplaning. Not only does it smooth the skin, but it also removes peach fuzz. Tiny amounts of hair on the face can show up on high-resolution cameras and can make it harder to apply makeup. The dead skin comes off as well as the hair, making makeup glide across the skin. It also enhances the absorption rate of moisturizing skin care products for the face. Cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning as a pre-requisite for other skin care techniques. Chemical peels are more effective after dermaplaning. The topical products we use are also more effective because the skin is smoother and absorbs the formula better.
PRP Hair Restoration

Platelet-rich plasma injections have effects on various parts of the body and skin. Hair restoration increases blood supply to the follicle and increases the thickness of the hair shafts. PRP for hair restoration also triggers and maintains the growth phase and controls your hair growth cycle not to mention slowing the progress of hair loss.

Shari is amazing. I’ve been getting laser hair removal treatments from her for a while now. She definitely will make you feel as ease. The machine they use is practically painless too. Easy five stars!
