The signs of photo-aging and sun damage affect both men and women and start to appear on the skin from age thirty onward. Most skin changes are commonly associated with aging resulting from sun exposure. These include changes in skin pigmentation such as freckles, melasma, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles and spider veins.


The signs of sun damage can be treated and reduced with a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. IPL is very effective in reducing the visible signs of sun damage by stimulating skin renewal, growth of new collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. This contributes to slowing down the future process of aging.

IPL uses the principle of neocollagenesis. Neocollagenesis is a process in which new collagen fibers are created under the skin thus replacing the damaged ones and filling the spaces where the fibers were destroyed, mainly due to environmental factors.

IPL treatments enable this process, letting the skin heal by itself while reducing the wrinkles. At the same time, pigmented and vascular lesions are reduced by using a low-energy and broadband light thus the skin imperfections is replaced by newer and younger looking skin. Multiple treatments are required in order to achieve optimum results.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of our most highly sought after treatments!

We use medical grade equipment in our clinic with the goal of providing affordable effective treatments for men and women alike. Before your first treatment, you will need a short 15 minute consultation with one of our skin- care consultants. This is needed to assess your skin type, assess your suitability for treatment and discuss how to prep your skin for the best possible result.


Hair Growth Cycle

It can take six to twelve weeks for a hair to grow from the papilla to the surface of the skin.

Every hair in our body goes through the three phases of the hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. At any given time about 85%-90% of your hair is in the Anagen phase (active stage), 1-2% is in the Catagen phase (transitional stage), and 10-14% is in the Telogen phase (resting stage).

The Anagen phase is the best time to target as the hair is well situated in the follicle for the IPL to seek and destroy.

Due to the different cycles, 6-8 treatments are recommended on average, spaced out according to the growth cycle. The time it takes to complete a full program varies from person to person and the location of the hair on the body, but is typically 12-24 months.
