Excess Hair Treatment
The Apogee Alexandrite 5500 is one of the most reliable lasers to combat unwanted dark hairs and dark spots on the skin, such as freckles, sunspots, melasma or age spots. The Alex laser works by emitting powerful laser energy into the targeted tissue ( pigmented lesion or hair follicle) that causes subsequent lightening to the lesions and destruction of the follicle without damaging the neighboring tissue. The Alex laser works best in lighter skin patients, but is safe in darker skin types as well. Pigmented lesions may also require multiple treatments depending on how dark they are. The lesions will appear lighter after each treatment and may appear smaller in size.read more
Cellulite treatment with Thermage
Thermage can reduce the lumpiness of cellulite. Thus, in addition to reducing the diameter and circumference of the thighs and buttocks, Thermage tightens the skin fairly uniformly, including the areas where the fat is herniating. One treatment usually suffices. Cellulite is a rather common condition of middle age, mostly in women. The buttocks and thighs are primarily affected. There are lumps alternating with dells caused by uneven accumulation and herniation of fat lobules, separated by fibrous bands. To find out more about cellulite, please visit our cellulite page. Sometimes the improvement is immediately noticeable but often it takes up to 6 months to see the optimum benefit. With the new protocol, 95% of patients are pleased with the results.
