Sun, skin disorders, aging and even heredity can all contribute to skin irregularities on the face and elsewhere on the body.

These include textural irregularities like wrinkles and acne scars, pigmentation changes like freckles and sunspots, stretch marks or visible blood vessels. Hair, a tattoo, and spider veins can become insecurity and in addition, skin may lose tone, feel less firm, and certain areas of the body may develop cellulite conditions.

The “Centre Yourself ™” Medical Spa can turn insecurities into confidence with our non- surgical Laser and IPL Treatments.

What is a Laser Treatment?

Lasers can be used to treat unwanted hair, pigment, broken blood vessels, leg veins and tattoos. The skin can also be rejuvenated with lasers and the appearance improved by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing surgical and acne scars, and reducing stretch marks.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can lasers be used for skin rejuvenation?

Lasers can renew the skin by enhancing collagen and elastin production resulting in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles providing a smooth and youthful looking appearance. Lasers can also lighten pigmentation caused by sun damage on the face, neck, hands, arms and legs. For many people, unwanted pigmentation is one of the first signs of aging.

What is fractional laser treatment?

Fractional lasers apply light in tiny micro-beams to create micro-columns of treatment, which can be controlled by size, energy, depth and the space between each micro-column. By treating a portion of the surface of the skin, healing and recovery is faster with few risks.

What is the difference between a fractional non-ablative and a fractional ablative laser?

Unlike ablative lasers, which remove the top layer of skin and part of the sub-layer, non-ablative fractional lasers keep the outer layer of skin in place, for faster healing and recovery.

What is IPL?

Unlike lasers that generally work with a single wavelength of light, IPL uses many wavelengths of specifically filtered light. Both lasers and IPL devices are designed to treat specific unwanted targets in the skin like pigment from sun damage, broken blood vessels or hair.

What are the benefits of IPL?

IPL can provide laser-like results on a variety of unwanted conditions.  Treatment sessions are fast and easy, and little to no downtime is required for recovery. Depending on the level of treatment, you can have an IPL or laser treatment session on your lunch break and return immediately to work or your daily activities.
