A studio medspa in Rochester, MN offering aesthetic services that yield corrective skin restoration with sustainable results.
Photo Facial / IPL:
We utilize the most advanced and versatile platform ever produced in the laser industry in order to specialize in safe, corrective treatments.
Our photo facial treatment works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by two of the body’s own natural chromophores – melanin in the pigmented areas and haemoglobin in the blood. Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”. This is an FDA approved, non-invasive treatment that helps diminish the signs of aging, treat sun damage, Rosacea and vascular imperfections and correct hyper pigmentation, brown spots, age spots, acne, uneven skin tones, melasma, port wine stains, venous lakes, telangiectasias, reticular vessels, fine lines and wrinkles.
Our state-of-the-art medical grade high speed micro-needling system offers the same results as a fractional laser without pain, downtime, expense, and thermal damage. Micro-needling is a safe, tried-and-true approach to depigmentation, smoothing furrow and frown lines, reducing crow’s feet, diminishing fine lines, lifting sagging cheeks, tightening enlarged pores, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, treating acne and acne scars, stretch marks, and scars. By vertically piercing the skin, our medical grade micro-needling system helps naturally induce collagen production and treat pigmentation.
Our DiamondTome Wands are a revolutionary solution for age-defying skin. The diamond-based exfoliation treatment is a skin-revitalizing treatment that helps repair skin that is damaged from the sun, scars, acne, and the unwanted effects of aging. Gentle abrasion and vacuum are used to remove the dead, outer layer of skin.
Laser Hair Removal:
Our laser system uses short, safe bursts of intense pulsed light (called I2PL technology by Ellipse) to remove unwanted hair from all body sites in a matter of minutes. With our system you get the fastest hair removal treatments on the market applicable for skin type I – IV. The visible light produced by Ellipse SWT® systems is carefully controlled to ensure the correct pulse length, wavelengths and right amount of energy to destroy the follicle. Our Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology (SWT®) hair removal treatment offers clinically-proven, safe and effective long-term removal of unwanted hair. Excellent hair clearance is obtained after only 4-6 SWT® treatments and clinical long term studies have proven that 77% hair is still away after 10 years.
For scars that have color (example, red) our laser works by directing well-controlled pulses of light into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by haemoglobin in the red blood contained in the micro-blood vessels in the scar. The light energy is transformed into heat. This heat is used to damage the walls of the micro-blood vessels. The visible light produced by the Ellipse systems is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and wavelengths energy to destroy the target without damaging surrounding tissue. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
Spider Veins / Vascular Lesions:
Vascular lesions consist of different types, from small telangiectasias (sometimes called spider veins or broken veins) to large Port Wine Stains. Some vascular lesions are present from birth, while others develop with age, or as the result of environmental damage (such as sun exposure). Regardless of the size of the lesion, they can cause psychological trauma so strong that patients seek professional help to remove them. Historically they have been covered with make-up, while surgery has been limited to the larger vessels on the legs.
With the use of our laser system we can treat even the most difficult vascular lesion successfully and with high comfort for our clients. The vessel supplying the lesion with blood is targeted and destroyed. Over time the vascular lesion disappears, restoring the skin’s natural appearance.
Nd:YAG technology is a much more effective option for the treatment of leg veins. The built-in SoftCoolTM ensures a near pain-free treatment of leg vessels. Nd:YAG is also a safer alternative than IPL or SWT® for leg veins. SWT® is good for treatment of very superficial small vessels or matting after sclerotherapy. Note that lasers or light can first be used 1 month post sclerotherapy.
Acne occurs when sebum is unable to leave the skin because a hair follicle is blocked. This may result in growth of bacteria below the surface of the skin. Inflammation can occur, and rupture of an inflamed area can lead to scarring.
Our Ellipse Selective Waveband Technology (SWT®) laser treatments have been clinically proven to accelerate the healing process for acne. By reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, the production of sebum slows down, and the healing process for acne accelerates.
Our laser treatments work by directing pulses of light into the epidermis. The light is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood vessels that feed the sebaceous glands. Haemoglobin converts the light energy into heat, which damages the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the glands. This technique is called “Selective Photothermolysis”.
BOTOX is a neuromodulator used to reduce the signs of aging by relaxing tensed facial muscle that cause wrinkles, fine lines, and crows feet.
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections used to restore facial harmony by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions and superficial fines lines, enhancing certain features and replacing soft-tissue volume loss. Dermal fillers are used in conjunction with neuromodulators, like Botox, to contour the jawline/lower face, correct volume loss in the midface/cheek areas, AND treat depressions caused by scars and wrinkles.
Medical Grade Skin Care Products:
Our line of prescription grade cleansers, treatments, moisturizers, and sun protectants are powered by the most innovative ingredients on the market, and have been a mainstay of clinically substantiated skin care for more than a decade. The addition of reparative and preventative products represents a new generation of skincare that is easily integrated into any regime, resulting in skin that is healthier, more hydrated and uniquely shielded with advanced DNA protection.
