Skin Tightening and Wrinkle Reduction

As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity. This can cause the skin to lose tone, resulting in loose skin. These services are ideal for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including loose skin around the jowl and neck areas, sagginess under the eyes, droopy brow lines, and nasolabial folds, commonly known as “smile lines.” We offer several laser treatment options based upon achieving your personal goals.

Fractional Skin Rejuvenation

If you’ve considered laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasions or deep chemical peels, but hesitated because of the extended recovery time or anesthesia required, Pixel Perfect may be the right solution for you. It provides similarly dramatic results as more invasive treatments, with fewer risks and a much faster healing time.

Pixel Perfect is a fractional rejuvenation procedure performed exclusively by Pixel® laser technology from Alma Lasers®, The treatment stimulates new collagen to grow and improves your skin’s texture and tone, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne scars.

Treatments are safe and effective, without injections or surgery. Treated skin is normally flushed and red, similar to a sunburn, but usually improves within five days.

This procedure is available at our Gig Harbor location.

Foto Facial

Prolonged sun exposure, along with aging, changes your skin resulting in age spots, wrinkles, broken blood vessels and an uneven complexion. Intense pulsed light (IPL) also called photorejuvenation, photo facial, or foto facial is a non-invasive treatment that diminishes sun/age spots, reduces pore size, acne/acne scars, wrinkles and rebuilds collagen. This treatment is a quick, safe and effective non-surgical treatment for a common cosmetic concern with no downtime.

IPL uses pulsed light in a series of gentle pulses over the treated area. Without damaging the top layer of skin the light penetrates the sub-surface layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or the pigmentation. The heat impairs the blood vessel or lesions, and the body begins its natural healing process.

This procedure is available at our Gig Harbor & Covington locations.

Targeted Foto Facial Treatments

Perfect for treating small dilated capillaries, cherry angiomas and vascular lesions. Five to six treatments will achieve optimal results.

Pigmented Lesion Treatment

Almost everyone has one or more pigmented lesion, which can include freckles, moles, birthmarks and sunspots. These can be caused by sun exposure, aging, or may be something you were born with.

Regardless of the cause, these lesions are simply spots on the skin, either raised or flat, where there is a higher concentration of melanin.*

A non-surgical option for removing these lesions is available with the Harmony®XL and its AFT 540 VP hand piece. Using advanced Intense Pulse Light technology, the hand piece exposes the pigmented lesion to short pulses of visible light, raising the temperature of the highly concentrated melanin until the cells containing the melanin shatter. These cells are then replaced with newly generated cells from the surrounding skin. This technology can be used to treat pigmented lesions on any skin type.

* Note, while in most cases, pigmented lesions are merely a cosmetic concern, they can be a sign of skin cancer. You should have your doctor evaluate any new or suspicious-looking lesions. Visit the American Cancer Society’s website for more information.

This procedure is available at our Gig Harbor & Puyallup locations.

Exilis® Body Shaping and Tissue Tightening

Exilis is an FDA-approved device that offers a non-surgical solution using radio Frequency energy for fat reduction and tissue tightening anywhere on the body. The procedure uses safe radio waves to heat your skin and targeted fat cells. This thermal energy speeds up the metabolic activity of the fat cells causing them to shrink. At the same time it stimulates and strengthens the collagen network which improves skin laxity and texture.

There is NO downtime, NO pain, NO anesthesia, NO numbing creams, NO after care.

This procedure is available at our Puyallup location.

Fraxel® Restore

Fraxel Restore has received FDA clearance for treatment of the following:

  • Wrinkles around the eye
  • Age and sun spots
  • Brown spots and pregnancy mask
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Skin resurfacing

Unlike other laser treatments, Fraxel treatment is able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to zap old, damaged skin cells. Fraxel treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

This procedure is available at our Puyallup location.

DiamondTome Medical Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a technique for removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it supple and vibrant. The DiamondTome Wand removes this layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. DiamondTome skin resurfacing is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time after treatment.

This procedure is available at our Puyallup location.

CO2 Skin Resurfacing with CO2RE

Looking for a laser treatment that helps with sun-damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles or other irregularities? The CO2RE offers laser skin resurfacing that precisely targets and treats the skin’s surface, middle and deep dermal levels.

The procedure allows precision-control over the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation. The CO2 laser decreases age spots, pore size and wrinkles, while improving the tone and texture of your skin. One treatment can revitalize your face and bring you back years in time.

Patients usually see results after one treatment with immediate improvement in fine lines and uneven texture. Skin may peel following the procedure and may last for seven days.

This procedure is available at our Gig Harbor location.
