Laser procedures have been shown to be effective in treating a number of conditions that require skin resurfacing. The following are some of the laser procedures offered at Skintechnologies.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Many people are uncomfortable with tattoos they applied several years ago.
The removal consists of placing a laser hand piece against the surface of the skin and activating the laser. The degree of discomfort varies with each person. Topical or local anesthetics can be applied. Several treatments are required at 6 – 8 week intervals.
Rosacea refers to a range of symptoms that generally start with some blushing or modest redness of the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Rosacea absolutely gets worse if you don't treat it.
While there is currently no cure for rosacea, it can be managed quite effectively with oral and topical antibiotics and lasers.
We are able to remove or improve facial wrinkles, lines and scars using CO² laser technology (ultrapulse fractional CO²). The laser uses high energy beams of light to vaporize the skin defects. It ablates the top layers of tissue while creating micro channels deep into the dermis to stimulate new collagen growth, resulting in smoother younger looking skin.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments improve the appearance of pigmented lesions and vessels of the skin. Pigmented lesions occur in response to sun damage and appear as dark brown areas. Vascular lesions and facial veins are superficial blue, red, or purple veins under the skin's surface.
