Laser Aesthetics

Lifeline Internal Medicine offers Cosmetic Laser Aesthetics and Therapies. We offer one of the safest and most effective laser treatments available. Just about everybody can get the treatment done. We can remove unwanted hair on areas such as the face, upper lip, neck, chin, underarms, hands, legs, bikini line, Brazilian, buttocks, chest, and breasts. Since we use the Cynosure Elite, which is both ALEXANDRITE and ND-YAG Laser, it is safe to treat dark and light skin types.

The Cynosure Elite Aesthetic Workstation is the most comprehensive laser hair removal system available today. Since it’s designed for all skin types, we can treat the broadest range of patients. In addition, the system is optimized for effective treatment of facial and leg veins, as well as benign epidermal pigmented lesions.

We have one of the best licensed cosmetic laser aestheticians in the Valley who specializes in skin treatments as well as laser hair removal. Our Anti-Aging Skin treatments include dermaplaning and superficial peels. These treatments are both terrific approaches in correcting a variety of skin concerns. Dermaplaning is a technique used for the removal of vellus hair (peach fuzz) as well as exfoliation of dead skin cells. Dermaplaning is an amazing treatment to do before a special event for a beautiful glow, as well as creating a satin smooth texture for application of makeup. The Superficial peels address pigmentation, hydration and a variety of other concerns with absolutely no downtime. We also offer a more aggressive chemical peel, that is a higher medical grade which will require some downtime. This peel will give you quicker results.

We look forward to treating your cosmetic skincare needs with expertise, care and compassion. Please call and book your Appointment today.

Frequently Asked Questions about Cosmetic Laser Services:

Laser Hair Removal

Traditional hair removal routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weeks, but none of them last forever and therein lies the true beauty of laser hair removal.

  • For the entire body
  • For all skin types, including tanned skin
  • Cost effective
  • Simple treatment

How does it work?

To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that hair can never grow there again.

Am I a viable candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be applied to all areas of the body and on all types of skin (even tanned or dark skin).

Does it hurt?

The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band. Slight redness or localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.

How many treatments are required?

Typically patients will see results in 4-6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone, hair color and several other factors. Your doctor or practitioner will talk to you about variables that may affect your individual results.

Facial Skin Treatment

If you’re over thirty, more than likely signs of premature aging are showing due to sun damage. With facial skin treatment, you can now treat sun spots, pigmented lesions and overall skin texture, giving you a more revitalized appearance than you’ve had in years.

  • Reverses the signs of sun damaged skin
  • Reduces pigmentation
  • Treats the blush of Rosacea
  • Improves overall skin texture and appearance

How does facial skin treatment work?

Facial skin treatment works by directing a beam of light to an irregularity in the skin, such as enlarged blood vessels or irregular chromophore. This removes the abnormality without scarring or damage, while stimulating collagen production to tighten the surrounding tissue, resulting in improved skin texture and reduced signs of aging.

How does this treatment differ from chemical peels and dermabrasion?

Unlike other treatments that remove an outer layer of skin and require significant healing time, laser treatment works by gently penetrating the skin to destroy the underlying vessels and pigment that are the cause of the problem. The outer skin itself is not damaged.

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment causes only minimal discomfort and any initial soreness is easily alleviated with a cold air cooling system.

How many treatments are required?

Typically several sessions are required for full-face treatment. The average treatment takes about 15-20 minutes. Results may be seen after the first few treatments. The treatment can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of typical anesthetics or gel.

How long does recovery take?

You’ll be able to return to normal activities immediately, though sunscreen should be applied as a post-treatment precaution.

Leg and Facial Veins

Leg and facial veins are bothersome at best, unattractive at worst. Fortunately, with cosmetic laser treatment, you can make yourself look and feel a whole lot better, often times, with as little as only one or two visits.

  • Removes leg and facial veins
  • Helps you get back to wearing shorts and bathing suits again
  • Simple treatment

What causes unwanted veins?

Red, blue or purple leg and facial veins can be a result of sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, age or genetics.

How does laser treatment work?

A cosmetic laser emits a prescribed dose of energy to the vein. The laser “selectively” targets the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel will naturally disappear.

How many treatments are required?

Typically only one or two treatments are required and results can be seen in 3-4 weeks. Treatment time usually varies between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.

Does it hurt?

The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Any redness or swelling should be gone within a day and you’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately.
