Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair follicles with high-intensity laser beams. The laser beams are absorbed by the pigment in the hair, which then heats up and destroys the hair follicles. Once the hair follicles are destroyed, they can no longer produce hair, and the treated area becomes smoother and hair-free.
The process of laser hair removal typically requires multiple treatments, as hair grows in cycles, and the laser can only effectively target hair during its growth phase. Most people require about 6 treatments.
One of the main benefits of laser hair removal is that it offers a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair. Unlike other hair removal methods, such as shaving or waxing, laser hair removal can provide permanent hair reduction, which means you can enjoy smooth skin for years to come.
Laser hair removal is also a quick, convenient and relatively painless procedure. Plus, because the results are long-lasting, you won’t have to worry about constantly shaving or waxing.
The most popular areas for women are bikini, underarms, legs, arms and face.
For men, back, shoulder and chest are the most requested treatments.
Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as microneedling, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. This technique involves the use of a specialized device equipped with fine needles that penetrate the skin, creating small, controlled injuries that stimulate the body’s natural healing response and collagen production.
Collagen is a protein that is found in our skin, bones, tendons, and other connective tissues. It provides our skin with strength and elasticity, and it plays a crucial role in maintaining the youthful appearance of our skin. As we age, our body’s production of collagen decreases, leading to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Collagen Induction Therapy is a powerful tool for combating these signs of aging. The micro-injuries created by the needles stimulate the body’s natural healing process, triggering the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This results in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
In addition to its anti-aging benefits, Collagen Induction Therapy has also been shown to be effective in treating a range of other skin concerns, including acne scars, melasma, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks.
The results of Collagen Induction Therapy are typically seen within a few weeks of the procedure and can continue to improve over time as the body continues to produce new collagen and elastin fibers.

Introductory Special on Juvederm Volux
Juvéderm Volux is a hyaluronic acid filler used to improve moderate to severe loss of jawline definition in adults. In shorter terms, Volux is used to define the jawline.
It’s the perfect product for modeling and sculpting because of its dense molecular composition that offers more structure, cohesivity and lift capacity. We explain Volux as a stickier gel (vs. sister products Voluma XC and others), making it better able to provide hold, structural support, and contours of the jaw.
Volux injections can:
achieve a stronger, chiseled, more defined jawline
contour the lower face to achieve facial harmony
Volux is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler to target the jawline.
