Our tattoo removal techniques can eliminate your tattoo with minimal downtime

There is good news for those who have unwanted body design: Dermal skin laser tattoo removal techniques can eliminate your tattoo with minimal downtime. Many people get tattoos that they unfortunately regret having later. What seems like a good idea at the time can sometimes become a problem later on. And there are many others seeking to reduce or remove previous tattoos in order to make way for new and more modern designs.

The history of decorative tattooing dates back thousands of years. The desire to remove them has probably existed just as long.

Early attempts to remove tattoos have had less than desirable results, often resulting in partial removal or scars in place of the tattoo. Techniques like dermabrasion, salabrasion, excision and Argon and CO2 lasers have left behind scars and pigment alterations in place of the tattoo.

At Dermal Skin we only use the highest quality medical grade technology. For laser tattoo removal we use the Q-Switched Nd YAG Laser which is specifically designed for the purpose of tattoo removal and is known for it’s outstanding ability to remove a variety of tattoo inks.

Today’s Q-Switched Technology

The advent of Q-switched lasers has permitted safe and efficient tattoo removal. The laser delivers high-intensity light pulses of a few billionths of a second into the treated area. The tattoo selectively absorbs the light without damaging the normal surrounding skin tissue in the process. Laser removes unwanted tattoos from all parts of the body. Tattoo inks are usually too large for the immune system to recognize which is why they are permanent. Laser selectively targets and shatters the ink of the tattoo into smaller particles which the immune system can recognize and remove without damaging the surrounding skin. These smaller fragments are then harmlessly removed by the body in the weeks following treatments.

An Innovative Way to Control Mild to Moderate Acne

The Blu-u acne treatment is a popular acne solution for people with mild to moderate acne. It is a nice (an effective) alternative to ointments and medications.

BLU-U is a unique acne treatment that uses blue light therapy to treat mild to moderate forms of acne. Blue light therapy effectively clears up and controls acne as the acne-causing bacteria is destroyed when exposed to the Blue light.

Blu-U treatments are simple, safe, painless and non-invasive. There are no side-effects and no downtime after a treatment. You simply sit with the light close to your face for about 30 minutes once a week, for four-to-six weeks depending on the severity of your acne.

A combination of Blu-U acne treatment and PDT (photodynamic therapy) treatments may also be considered for more severe cases of acne. A topical medicine compound called Levulan is applied to the skin prior to exposure to a Blu-U light. The light activates the compound, which attacks the acne bacteria. Treatment usually includes scheduling three sessions at four-week intervals. Following this combined program, most acne sufferers experience long-term improvements.

Blu-U Pre-cancer skin lesion program – Photodynamic therapy is also an effective treatment choice for various sun damaged pre-cancerous lesions and spots called actinic keratosis.

Benefits:

  • Non-invasive
  • No downtime
  • It is safe
  • No daily treatment regimen
  • Works effectively on all skin types

Correct Countless Skin Imperfections

IPL Photorejuvenation turns back the clock and restores youthfulness to your skin. The visible signs of aging cannot be avoided, but with IPL Photorejuvenation they can be dramatically minimized.

IPL treats the damaged superficial layer of your skin while delivering thermal energy to deeper tissue. This light technology minimizes brown spots, sun damage, fine wrinkles and large pores. It smooths the skin and significantly reduces redness caused by aging, rosacea or acne scarring.

IPL Photorejuvenation is unique because it simultaneously erases skin damage while improving skin tone and texture. It improves the complexion while at the same time stimulating collagen growth to result in smoother skin. This procedure is a non-surgical, non-ablative approach. Commonly treated areas include the face, neck, chest and hands.

Photorejuvenation provides long-term improvement to the complexion and skin texture, with only the slightest interruption in your busy lifestyle. This in-office procedure typically requires three to five treatments and is tailored to your individual needs. Sessions are typically 30 minutes, and scheduled once every three to four weeks. Occasionally evidence of treatment such as bruising may last three days. IPL results in smoother skin gradually, producing a natural improvement with very low risk.

Benefits:

  • Addresses the most visible skin conditions
  • Treats a wide range of skin imperfections
  • Non-invasive
  • Treats rosacea
  • Creates a more even skin tone
  • Can be used on the face, hands, chest and neck
  • Provides gradual, natural-looking improvements
  • Produces long-lasting results

Eliminate Unwanted Hair

Traditionally, the usual remedies for unwanted hair have included plucking, shaving and waxing or chemical depilatories. Some of these remedies are painful, some are messy and all are only temporary.

Laser hair removal is a more effective hair-removal solution. The LightSheer diode laser is a state-of-the-art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair in as little as four to five sessions, although generally six- to-eight sessions are required for optimal results.

The laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light (laser) that is emitted by the LightSheer diode. The laser is well absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser light pulses for a fraction of a second, but long enough to heat up the hair and significantly impede the follicle’s ability to re-grow. This process also treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously.

An important part of the procedure is the ability to cool the skin. A special contact cooling hand piece allows for the treatment of the most sensitive skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during and after each laser pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root.

A treatment can last from a few minutes in length to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. The exact number of treatments varies for each person depending on the area of the body being treated as well as a person’s age, heredity and hormones.

Our professionals are able to treat all skin types and colors and most hair colors. All areas of the body can be treated including face, neck, ears, legs, arms, underarms, bikini, stomach and backs for both men and women.

We would be pleased to tell you more about a treatment program, possible side effects and what results you can expect during your complimentary consultation with us.

Reveal a Fresher Skin

Microdermabrasion, popularly known as “skin polishing”, is the simple, safe and gentle approach to skin resurfacing. It is an effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and colours with no downtime or discomfort, and is a perfect treatment for people looking to freshen up their skin.

Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface where dead cells and other debris then settle. This can cause enlarged and / or clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, and a dull appearance. As we age this skin re-newel process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance. Microdermabrasion is a versatile treatment that can be done on its own, in a series with other facial treatments.

At Dermal Skin Laser Centre we use the innovative Dermasweep technology, which provides ‘particle-free’ microdermabrasion treatments. Dermasweep is a non-invasive exfoliation and multi-level skin resurfacing system. It features a closed vacuum system.. Dermasweep gently lifts the skin’s surface as the device sweeps away the dead outer layer of skin. The skin is left smoother as the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow and cleans pores.

Dermasweep also incorporates the use of Epi-infusion and peelfusion treatments to combine exfoliation with specific topical solutions. These are used to treat particular dermatological skin conditions, addressing each client’s unique skin care needs.

Infusion options include:

  • Vitamin C infusion treats hydrations and brightening
  • Hyaluronic Acid infusion treats hydration for all skin types
  • Skin Lightening infusion treats hyperpigmentation (dark spots)
  • Acne with Salicylic Acid infusion treats acne and clogged pores

Benefits:

  • Suitable for all skin types
  • No discomfort
  • No downtime
  • Non-invasive
  • Fast, effective treatment
  • Treats fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Improve and control acne
  • Improve overall skin health
