  • What is a LimeLight Facial?

    LimeLight Facial is a new non-invasive procedure that allows us to reach layers of the skin that lie below the surface, thereby rejuvenating skin. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and sun damage.


  • How does laser hair removal work?

    Laser treatment for hair removal involves using powerful pulses of light to heat and destroy the hair follicles deep in the fat layer of the skin. Intense pulsed light systems release precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by melanin, the pigment in hair. This heats up the hair and destroys the cells responsible for hair growth, to achieve long term hair reduction.


  • How often does laser hair removal need to be done?

    Only hair in the active growth stage of the growth cycle is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Depending on the site treated, treatment is conducted every four to eight weeks until a satisfactory result is seen.
