Laser Hair Reduction

Laser hair reduction is an ideal treatment option for patients who wish to permanently reduce unwanted hair. Laser hair reduction can be performed on virtually any area of the body. Some of the most popular treatment areas include the legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, chin, and upper lip.

Laser hair reduction is performed in our Greenville, SC office. The length of the procedure will depend on the size of the area being treated. Smaller areas such as the upper lip can typically be treated in just a few minutes, while larger areas like the back may require an hour or more to treat. For the best hair reduction results, most people will need four to six laser hair reduction treatments each spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.

Patients may experience mild discomfort during the laser hair reduction procedure. After the procedure, swelling and redness are possible, but most people are able to return to routine activities immediately after treatment.

BBL™ Broad Band Light

The innovative, non-invasive BBL light therapy utilizes a broad range of wavelengths to allow targeted treatment for a variety of skin conditions including acne, hyperpgimentation (freckles or age spots), vasular lesions and rosacea. Popular treatment areas are the face, décolletage, arms and hands. Our providers will tailor your treatment to match your skin's condition and desired result. Three to five treatments are recommended.

Skin Tyte II ™

Skin Tyte is a fast, non-invasive treatment that can provide visible firming to areas on the face, jowls, neck and stomach.

Skin Tyteuses advanced infrared light technology to deeply heat dermal collagen while continuously protecting the treated epidermis with sapphire contact cooling. Deeply heating collagen promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat initiates the body's natural healing process creating a renewed collagen foundation and increased skin firmness. Three to five sessions typically yield the desired result.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a popular and effective treatment for addressing wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, discoloration, and other skin imperfections. At our Greenville, SC practice, the laser skin resurfacing treatment plan is customized to your individual needs and skin type for maximum skin rejuvenation results.

During the laser skin resurfacing procedure, a laser is passed over the treatment area. The laser removes the old, damaged upper layer of skin cells. During the healing process, the body replaces this layer with fresh, healthy skin cells, resulting in a smoother skin texture, more even skin tone, and more youthful appearance overall.

Laser skin resurfacing is typically performed under local anesthesia. The treatment area may take one to two weeks to heal. Most patients are able to return to work and other daily activities about one week after the laser skin resurfacing procedure.
