Aura KTP Laser, CoolGlide Excel Laser, and PhotoFacial Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
How Does it Work?
The laser light is absorbed by hemoglobin within red cells in vessels. As this molecule collects the laser energy, the red cells heat up and the undesirable capillaries are eliminated.
Who is a Candidate?
Many patients can undergo these treatments. Darker skin complexions must have more conservative treatment settings.
What can I Expect?
Less redness and flushing, with reduction of broken capillaries and veins. Smoother, glowing, more even skin tones which convey a rested, youthful appearance.

Safety & Side Effects
This treatment has a very strong track record for safety and precision. Bruising can result at higher energies. Side effects are rare and generally temporary. The specific risks and the suitability of these procedures for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Occasionally some lightening of the skin occurs. Normal skin color returns within three months after treatment of vascular lesions. Scarring occurs in less than one-tenth of one percent of all cases.
At low energies, no down time. At higher settings, bruises result, lasting 5 to 14 days.
Does it Hurt?
A cooling spray is felt microseconds before the laser fires, making anesthetics unnecessary. Many patients may feel a slight sting during the procedure. Ice packs may be used immediately after to quickly alleviate any discomfort.
Before Treatment Instructions
Avoid excessive sun exposure for two to four weeks before the treatment.
After Treatment Instructions
Avoid excessive sun exposure for two to four weeks after the treatment. Should a blister form from higher energy treatments, apply an antibiotic ointment twice a day until healed.
