We are proud to offer Candela GentleMax Pro Laser and Nordlys IPL system energies to effectively, gently restore, and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin.
These treatments can safely and comfortably fade the appearance of skin imperfections caused by the sun, such as freckles and sun spots. The treatment is also used to treat uneven skin tones caused by rosacea, spider veins, and age spots.
How does it work?
Short, safe bursts of light are directed at the skin. This may be visible intense pulsed light or from a laser, depending on the condition you want to be treated. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by hemoglobin in the blood or melanin from the overactive melanocytes (dark pigment). The light is converted to heat, which destroys the protein in the wall of the vessels and melanin causing it to gradually disappear after treatment. To ensure the best light transmission, a thin layer of gel is applied to your skin before the treatment
Does the treatment hurt?
No anesthetics are required, many patients describe the treatment as being like a snap from a rubber band followed by a sensation similar to the feeling of gentle sunburn.
This treatment is suitable for most skin types (light to medium skin tone), however, we do offer other safe and effective treatment options for clients who are not suitable for Laser and IPL treatments
