This long-pulsed YAG laser is currently the fastest and most powerful in its class and is approved for skin tightening. The GentleYag safely penetrates deep enough and is excellent to deliver a thermal stimulus within the dermis, and thus initiate new collagen formation. It's ideal for treating mild to moderate skin laxity. It is also effective in tightening skin on other areas of the body. Unlike using RF energy to tighten skin, the 1064nm energy appears to penetreate sufficiently to exhibit the equivalent if not superior tissue-tightening results without the accompanying risk of fat atropy often associated with electrical resistence heating. It is nearly painless with no downtime and the best results are seen one month after the third session.

For many women and men, unwanted hair is a nuisance – or even a source of embarrassment. Until recently, laser hair removal has been uncomfortable, time consuming, expensive and provided results that were inconsistent at best. Now, revolutionary long-pulse high-energy Alexandrite laser is ideal for safely removing unwanted hair from almost all skin types.  This laser is the gold standard for laser hair removal.  Results are far better, treatments safer, faster and more comfortable than ever before. Combined with Candela's patented Dynamic Cooling Device™, this laser provides comfortable, safe and effective treatment by cooling the upper layers of the skin while effectively treating unwanted hair. The GentleLASE system is also effective for the treatment of pigmented lesions. A complimentary consultation is necessary before scheduling your first treatment to ensure that you will have a successful and painless procedure. Of note, there is no one laser ideal for all skin types. We may choose to use a different laser for dark skin for safety reasons.

Gentle Waves LED Photomodulation technology is the interaction of light delivered through LED's (light emitting diodes) to activate skin cells causing them to produce collagen. This technology converts light energy within the cells, similar to the way photosynthesis takes sunlight and turns it into food energy in plants. Gentle Waves technology can now offer a totally natural, non-invasive method of skin rejuvenation to reduce the visible signs of aging. Gentle Waves does not rely on thermal energy so there is no trauma to the skin, no pain or discomfort and no side effects. The main benefit is a smoother, softer and creamier looking skin with reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, brown spots and skin redness. A series of six to eight treatments is recommended and you can be treated up to twice a week since there is no thermal effects to the skin.  This is a gentler modality that is done by the Esthetician.

Other major benefits  include:  Painless, No anesthesia, No discomfort, No downtime, Very quick, Safe, and affordable compared to other anti-aging treatments. Gentle Waves has been scientifically tested and FDA submitted studies demonstrated a 60% global improvement in overall skin quality. In addition, Gentle Waves has been found to be extremely effective in improving the appearance of the neck and chest which has been difficult to treat up to now. Gentle Waves LED photomodulation can also be used in conjunction with facials and microdermabrasion.

Our lasers successfully treat small red veins (telangiactasia) and other red and blue veins that are 3mm in diameter or smaller. Laser Vein Therapy is light energy through a laser hand-piece, targeting the spider vein in a series of brief pulses. This treatment is virtually pain-free and results can be permanent*. The light energy is absorbed as heat by the blood vessels causing a coagulation effect, allowing the vessels to be reabsorbed by your body. Come in and rid yourself of those unwanted veins, and enjoy clear even toned legs!
​*This treatment will not prevent future spider veins from possibly occurring.

Our Gentlelase laser is extremely effective for the safe removal of pigmentation in sunspots, Seborric Keratosis , and Cafe au lait lesions. It will leave you with a clear, smooth complexion. The number of sessions vary from person to person and also the area being treated. For the majority of people an average of 1 to 2 sessions are required to fade or remove pigmented lesions and imperfections. After the treatment, you'll be able to resume almost all normal daily activities by using adequate sunscreen and limiting sun exposure to the treated areas. . Between 1 to 3 weeks, the darkened leasions fade and/or flake off.

3The Vbeam laser is a 595 pulsed dye laser used to treat a wide range of vascular lesions including: periorbital wrinkles, facial veins, rosacea, port wine stains, hemangiomas and red scars. It can be effective in the treatment persistent red noses, thickened red scars, and sun damage on the neck and chest area that gives the appearance of persistent redness. Most conditions require multiple treatment sessions for optimal results. By selectively cooling the epidermis, while leaving the underlying target at normal temperatures, the DCD minimizes thermal injury, pain, and the risks associated with anesthesia without decreasing the effectiveness of the laser treatments.


How it Works:  V-beam laser treatments deliver an intense but gentle burst of light that is absorbed by the blood vessels in the dermis. These blood vessels are reabsorbed by the body allowing for a cleaner more refreshed appearance. The procedure itself is not particularly painful, and most patients liken it to the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. 


Scars Treated:  The amount of improvement in your scar after Vbeam treatments depends on their type and severity. Mild to moderate scars from acne, stretch marks, and surgery may become nearly unnoticeable. Severe scars will be reduced but may still be present. Vbeam is used on darker scars that are red or pink. It is usually not effective on indented or light colored scars.


Treatment Safety:  It is extremely safe. Side effects may include purple colored spots, redness, and swelling in the treated area. These usually do not last more than a few days. 


Before Treatment:  Avoid sun exposure.  It is less effective on tan skin and not recommended for patients with very dark skin tones, because it is more drawn to the skin pigment than to the blood vessels and can cause discoloration. It is most effective on pale skin because of the contrast between the dark blood vessels and light skin. Do not take medication containing aspirin for 3 days before and 2 weeks after your laser treatment.  


Recovery: Vbeam is a non-ablative laser. Since it does not remove a layer of skin, the recovery time is shorter than with ablative laser treatments. Treated skin may have initial bruising depending on intensity of the treatment. The skin may also be tender, similar to a mild sunburn. You may not see results for several weeks after treatment.

For those who want maximum results and are fine with at least one week of downtime, the Matrix laser will deliver.  As a person ages, their collagen production begins to decline which leads to the breakdown of the skin's underlying support structure. The daily exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays and other environmental elements can cause the skin to become discolored and premature wrinkles may emerge. Matrix Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing provides wrinkle reduction, overall tissue tightening and textural improvement. Treatments with the Matrix Fractional CO2 laser will enhance the skin's strength and elasticity. The skin will have a smoother, tighter texture, and pigmentation problems will diminish. Dr. Han has precise control over the intensity of the treatment and each individual treatment can be tailored to a specific need and allotted downtime.

The aging process can cause your skin to become lax, pigmented and rough. Sun exposure and environmental assault just adds to the problem. Aging is inevitable but the VI Peel can make a difference in as little as 7 days. VI Peel is specifically formulated to rejuvenate aging skin and help prevent future damage. It softens fine lines and wrinkles, restore a more even skin tone, and smooths away rough skin texture. A simple, pain-free procedure.

The Smoothbeam laser is a simple and effective treatment for acne in which a laser is used to target the sebaceous glands beneath the surface of your skin where the trouble is caused.  It provides the perfect balance of controlled cooling of the epidermis with precise heating of the upper dermis. And for patients seeking smoother skin, Smoothbeam safely improves acne scars and softens fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

Treatment for the following:  Acne & Acne Scars, Sebaceous Hyperplasia, Skin Rejuvination, Periorbital and Perioral Wrinkles.

Treatment Safety:  The Smoothbeam laser produces an intense but gentle burst of light that selectively alters the sebaceous glands that are the cause of acne without damaging the surrounding tissue. After laser treatment the surrounding tissue is left intact and normal pigmentation occurs. The epidermis is protected during the treatment with the Dynamic Cooling Device, which sprays a cooling cryogen mist onto the skin before and after each laser pulse, which also increases patient comfort.

Scar Improvement:  There is no current method or therapy that will completely remove scars and therefore we may advise using other laser modalities in conjunction with the Smoothbeam. The Smoothbeam laser can improve the look and feel of most scars by stimulating the collagen production in the deep layers of your skin. Multiple treatments are usually necessary to achieve improvement; the amount of improvement depends on the size and severity of the scar. Most patients notice improvement 6-8 weeks after their first treatment.
