It is essential to book a consultation to discuss the many facial resurfacing lasers that we offer.
Cool Peel- This is a 2-3 day downtime procedure that is the Gold Standard in facial treatments, targeting tone and texture issues. We can target specific areas such as jowls, crow's feet, acne scars, current acne, and red and brown pigments within the skin. Cool Peel technology is good for all skin types. It targets wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, blemishes and tightens and balances tone. This laser targets the superficial layers of the skin, revealing young and refreshed skin, with a much lower downtime than traditional C02 lasers.

This is the most effective procedure to improve skin quality and texture and reduce moderate to severe wrinkles. It also increases collagen stimulation. We can also use this on the hands, neck and chest.
