Services Offered By Liz
The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology

Laser Genesis

The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars. Treatments are performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner.

Laser Genesis works by gently heating the upper dermis below your skin’s surface. The procedure stimulates collagen regrowth and generates heat in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

The treatment is relaxing and therapeutic. You will feel a gentle warmth on your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth above your skin.


Laser Limelight treats skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots and sun damage skin

Laser Limelight

Laser Limelight treats skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots and sun damage skin. The process delivers a non-invasive light treatment that can be customized for different skin tones and aging skin conditions. The result is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment with minimal discomfort.

The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.

The Laser LimeLight is ideal for any part of your face, neck and decollete, with skin redness, tiny veins (telangiectasia) or brown spots. Light brown spots respond well to Limelight treatment. The heating of the pigmented brown or red cells, causes the therapeutic effect.


Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. The laser beams concentrated light into hair follicles. The pigment within the follicles absorbs the light, destroying the hair.

This is the perfect procedure for someone who is not happy with constant shaving, tweezing or waxing. Safely remove unwanted hair on all skin types, and say Goodbye, to your razor!

 


Vascular laser treatments are effective at eliminating spider veins, superficial blood vessels and capillaries and other vascular lesions that are commonly seen around the nose, eyes, cheeks, lips and legs

Leg & Face Vascular Treatments

Vascular laser treatments are effective at eliminating spider veins, superficial blood vessels and capillaries and other vascular lesions that are commonly seen around the nose, eyes, cheeks, lips and legs. We use the Cutera Excel V laser which is a highly advanced and effective technology.

Light energy targeting visible blood vessels is delivered to the skin through a hand piecce. The vessels absorb the light energy and are damaged and absorbed by the body without injury to surrounding tissue. Small vessels can often be eliminated after a single treatment while larger vessels may require multiple treatments.


Dermaplaning is an exfoliating procedure using a straight-edge blade

DermaPlaning

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating procedure using a straight-edge blade. Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skins' outermost surface. This treatment will allow products and laser therapies to penetrate the skin more easily. And your skin will be brighter and smoother immediately afterwards.

This treatment can be performed alone or in combination with other therapies to treat fine lines, vellus hair and pigmentation irregularities.


Microdermabrasion is professional-grade skin exfoliation.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatments are used to treat a vast range of skin imperfections and greatly help to minimizing pores, acne scars, fine lines, eliminate white & black heads and polish up dry or dull skin. Microdermabrasion is professional-grade skin exfoliation.

Microdermabrasion is a widely performed skin rejuvenation procedure that has proven its effectiveness on all skin types, including oily, dry and uneven. It removes dry, dehydrated skin, reduces pore size and promotes a more youthful appearance.

Cutera’s exquisitely engineered devices define the forefront of medical aesthetics, delivering the highest level of performance, safety, and efficacy.
