How Clear + Brilliant works
Once the skin is prepped, the laser tip makes multiple passes over the skin. You may feel a warm tingly or prickling sensation. The non-ablative fractional laser creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue. It selectively heats up and damages the deeper dermal tissue while leaving the superficial epidermis intact. What to expect from Clear + Brilliant.
Once your treatment is complete, the skin may appear red and feel warm immediately after your treatment. You are free to resume your normal activities. This treatment will create some sensitivity to the sun and it is recommended that you avoid direct sunlight for two days following the procedure and wear a broad spectrum medical grade sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

BBL and IPL Photorejuvenation
Photorejuvenation is another breakthrough treatment using Intense Pulsed Light (also known as IPL or BBL) to create more even toned, brighter and smoother, younger looking skin. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, your skin care consultant will be able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure. BBL and IPL Photorejuvenation is also the best service for treating rosacea.
- Effectively improves sun spots, brown pigmentation, redness and blood vessels.
- Can treat a full face and neck in 45 minutes.
- Virtually no downtime.
- Non-invasive treatment.
How BBL and IPL Photorejuvenation works
BBL or IPL delivers a pulse of light energy that gently heats up the upper layers of the skin. This energy targets the red and brown colors of the skin eliminating many of the vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will also stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen that provides a firmer, smoother appearance to the skin. During the treatment your eyes will be protected with safety shields. Cold gel is then applied to the skin. As the light is passed over the skin you may briefly feel a rubber band snap or warm sensation as the targeted areas absorb the light.
What to expect from BBL and IPL Photorejuvenation
Immediately after the treatment your skin may experience mild to moderate redness and feel warm. This normally does not last long. You may need 2-5 treatments at a 3-4 week interval to produce the best results. As IPL does target pigment you should refrain from having this treatment done if you have tanned skin or have recently used a self-tanner. You should wear a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher for 2-3 weeks following your treatment.

How laser hair removal works
Laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle and destroys the root with heat. This means that laser hair removal is ineffective on white, blonde, grey or red hair. There is no damage to the surrounding skin. On average you will need 6-8 treatments to get the best results. As laser does target pigment you should refrain from having this treatment done if you have tanned skin or have recently used a self-tanner. You must also shave the area to be treated in the morning of the day your appointment is booked. Waxing should be discontinued 2-3 weeks before your laser hair removal session. You should wear sunscreen of a SPF 30 or higher for 2-3 weeks following your treatment. Multiple treatments are required for best results with re-treatment done at certain intervals that are determined by the area of hair growth.
What to expect from laser hair removal
Depending on the size of the area to be treated the technician will choose one of two different hand pieces. For larger areas a vacuum hand piece is used. You will feel a gentle suctioning of the skin as well as some heat as the laser targets the hair follicles. For smaller areas, a more focused hand piece is used in conjunction with ultrasound gel. Again you will feel some heat as the light is dispersed through the skin. You may have some redness after treatment but this normally disappears quickly.
