The newest breakthrough in laser skin therapy is Skin Tightening. For the serious candidate who wants to reverse the signs of aging lax skin through non-surgical means, Skin Tightening offers a safe effective alternative to traditional face lifts. Skin Tightening is an FDA approved tissue tightening procedure that tightens lax skin on the face ,neck and decollete . Our customers love this skin tightening procedure, because it’s a pain free alternative to surgical methods. Skin Tightening produces dramatic results!
Infra-red light penetrates deep into the dermis, deep-heating the tissue in the targeted area and stimulating long-dormant collagen. As a result, the collagen contracts and tightens, producing visibly firmer-looking skin in the treated area. Results of our skin tightening procedure become more dramatic over time as collagen re-builds though a series of treatments. Like our Laser Hair Removal treatments, Skin Tightening is effective and safe for all skin types.
How long does the typical Skin Tightening procedure take?
Depending on the size of the area, one of our professionally administered Skin Tightening procedures takes an hour. You will feel a warming sensation. Some clients choose to take a mild pain reliever before the procedure although no anesthetic is required. Afterward, you may experience some mild swelling or redness in the treated area but this should subside in a few hours. With our SkinTightening procedures, there is no downtime.
What kind of results can I expect from Skin Tightening?
After just one Skin Tightening treatment clients will notice firmer, tauter skin in the treated area. Fine lines and wrinkles fill in. Frown lines soften. For optimal results, we recommend a series of protocol of three skin tightening treatments spaced four weeks apart. After three-to-six months, clients who have undergone this non-ablative, non-invasive procedure find that they have achieved a result that is similar to and often more natural looking than a face lift.
Who is a good candidate for the Skin Tightening procedure?
Skin Tightening is safe for all skin types and all body types. It is FDA approved. This wrinkle reduction procedure works best on lax sagging skin around the chin, and jaw line . Not to be mistaken with endermologie, for cellulite, Skin Tightening is a tissue tightening alternative for sagging loose skin.

Spider Vein Removal
Spider veins are small-dilated veins near the surface of the skin and measure about 0.3 to 2.5 millimeters in size. They may be red, blue, purplish, or greenish in color. The medical term for spider veins is telangiectasia. Spider veins can develop anywhere on the body, but are commonly found on the face and legs. There are larger superficial veins called reticular veins that may be the source of spider veins.
Spider veins may be the sign of deeper insufficiency. For this reason, any underlying problem contributing to spider veins must be addressed before treatment may begin . Most spider veins are caused by venous hypertension, which is high pressure in one portion of your venous system.
During laser treatment, a laser is applied to the skin over your spider veins. Laser energy causes your spider veins to coagulate and shrink. Laser therapy is most effective for small and medium size spider veins. Large spider veins respond poorly and are best treated with sclerotherapy. You are likely to experience mild discomfort similar to having a small rubber band snapping against skin. Treatments usually do not require sedatives, pain medications, or injections of local anesthetic. Immediately following treatment, spider veins will be darker and more visible. Over two to six weeks, your spider veins usually fade. After each treatment, you will see a 70% to 80% improvement in the appearance of face spider veins and 30-40% improvement in leg spider veins. An average of three treatments will be required at three-month intervals to produce desired results. Combination therapy can be considered and beneficial if you have small, medium and large spider veins. You may wish to start with sclerotherapy, because sometimes all veins will be improved after injecting the larger ones. This may reduce the number of veins that need to be treated by laser and minimize your overall cost.
What areas of the body can be treated?
All parts of the body can be treated with the Cynosure YAG laser.
How many treatments are needed?
It depends on:
- The desired degree of blood vessel reduction
- Hormonal status
- The area being treated
- Medications, (prednisone can increase superficial blood vessel growth)
Typically, one or three treatments are needed for significant improvement of spider veins . Treatment can be done every 6 weeks on the face, and every 2-3 months on the legs. Cherry hemangiomas (red dots on the body) usually only require one or two treatments
Am I a good candidate for laser removal of unwanted, unsightly spider veins?
The unique design of the Cynosure YAG laser, and the long wavelength, allows treatment of people with all skin colors. A smaller number of treatments are needed when the skin is light colored. We do not treat patients with a fresh suntan.
What questions should I ask myself when considering laser spider vein removal?
- How much are you embarrassed by unwanted spider veins?
- How much are you bothered by the time you spend concealing your unwanted blood vessels?
- Do your unwanted blood vessels (for example, on your legs) inhibit your choice of clothing or limit the activities that you engage in (for example, swimming)?
Cost may vary depending on the density of veins and size of area. However, as an estimate, you may expect $85-325 per treatment area. Call now for a FREE consultation 719-592-1576
Photo facial is a generic term for a skin treatment that uses some kind of light-based technology. Photo facials (sometimes called foto facials) have a number of different uses, but are mostly used for treating brown spots, broken capillaries, and boosting collagen.
An IPL photo facial can treat a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, and facial redness. An IPL photo facial delivers a bright blast of light at very high energy levels through a hand-held device. An IPL photo facial is the better choice is you have brown spots, broken capillaries or overall redness, called diffused facial redness. The number of IPL photo facials you need will vary depending on the condition you’re treating, the results you want, and how your skin responds. The typical IPL Photo facial treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and they are typically scheduled across three week intervals. Most patients need between 5-8 total treatments to get the best results. The actual Photo facial session itself can be somewhat painful for some, as the feeling of the laser beam on the skin is usually akin to that of a snapped rubber band. However, the pain usually subsides very quickly after treatment, as is rarely anything more than mild. Skin Tightening is a noninvasive, completely natural-looking alternative to invasive treatments or surgery. By stimulating healthy collagen, the Skin Tightening process firms sagging skin and fills in wrinkles at your jaw line, eye area, mouth and cheeks, jumpstarting organic cell growth – making your skin look and act more like the way it used to.
Scars from acne can seem like double punishment — first you had to deal with the pimples, now you have marks as a reminder.
It helps to understand the different kinds of acne so you can figure out what to do about different types of scarring: Acne lesions or pimples happen when the hair follicles (or “pores”) on the skin become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. A plugged follicle is the perfect place for bacteria to grow and create the red bumps and pus-filled red bumps known as pimples.
Acne comes in different forms:
- mild acne, which refers to the whiteheads or blackheads that most of us get at various times
- moderate acne, which includes red inflamed pimples called papules and red pimples with white centers called pustules
- severe acne, which causes nodules — painful, pus-filled cysts or lumps — to appear under the skin
Most serious scarring is caused by the more severe forms of acne, with nodules more likely to leave permanent scars than other types of acne.
Specific dermatological procedures to minimize acne scars will be determined by your physician based on:
- Your age, overall health, and medical history
- Severity of the scar
- Type of scar
- Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
- Your opinion or preference
Although acne often is a chronic condition, even if it occurs only during adolescence, acne can leave life-long scars. Acne scars typically look like “ice pick” pit scars or craterlike scars. Although proper treatment for acne may help minimize scarring, several dermatological procedures may help to further minimize any acne scars, including the following:
To treat brown hyperpigmented scars, the laser works by penetrating deep into the dermis, where it will break up the brownish/purplish pigment left in the skin after a pimple heals. To treat atrophic (depression) acne scars, the laser penetrates the skin to target the building blocks of skin, namely collagen and fibroblasts, causing a controlled thermal injury that alters the structure of these building blocks. In time, they regenerate to repair acne scars and soften the edges of the the depression scar. For pigmented acne scars, the laser creates and auto-mechanical and auto-accoustic effect to breakup the pigmented lesions. Your body’s immune system will scavenge these particles to clear away the discoloration much faster than normal.
Laser pore tightening is quick, painless, highly effective procedure that works by penetrating deep into the skin’s dermal layer to stimulate new collagen formation. The new collagen formation plumps up your skin, which will tighten skin and reduce pore size.
