What Is CoolSculpting?
Many of us have fatty areas that resist diet and excercise. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target and crystallize fat cells. Following CoolSculpting treatment, the crystallized fat cells are gradually removed by your body’s immune system. The remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer, leading to an improvement in appearance.

Hair grows in cycles. The laser is only effective on hair in its actively growing cycle. At any one time, there will only be a certain number of hairs in a growing phase. This means that consistent treatments at appropriate intervals are absolutely necessary for the best possible results. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin, hair colouring, coarseness of the hair and density per treated area. The laser hair removal system causes permanent reduction in the number of hairs growing in an area. Because hair grows in three phases, and each hair goes through these stages independently, it is almost impossible for one laser treatment to permanently reduce all hair in a given area. While individual results may vary, patients typically find that it takes 6 to 8 treatments to get the desired results. Both IPL and Laser can be used to remove hair, allowing us to offer this treatment regardless of skin type or colour.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) – also known as photofacial, fotofacial and photo rejuvenation – combines a state-of-the-art system with the latest techniques in photofacial therapy. IPL is not a laser. The IPL system delivers high intensity, powerful pulses of light which greatly enhance the results of skin rejuvenation. For a specific skin therapy, IPL stimulates new collagen growth resulting in a smoother complexion, more even skin tone, and a healthier overall appearance.
A highly advanced computer regulates the light pulses to a specific wavelength range which in turn heats a portion of the skin. This removes the unwanted tissue while sparing or avoiding the surrounding healthy or “normal” tissue. The IPL’s penetration depth and degree of heat is very controlled to minimize complications. With IPL therapy, the light pulses are directed at the blood vessels, age spots, freckles, flat pigmented birthmarks and other discolourations, increasing new collagen growth and reducing pigmentation.
Laser Genesis is a skin rejuvenation treatment which targets a deeper layer of the skin where collagen is made. The laser heats the dermis causing new collagen production which will continue over time. The result is more even skin tone, tighter pores and a smoother skin texture. Laser also targets the microvasculature (tiny vessels) beneath the skin’s surface, decreasing diffuse redness and ruddy complexions. Laser is also commonly used to remove unwanted hair.
Melasma (Chloasma) is a disorder of cutaneous pigmentation stimulated by estrogen. Though it does not pose any health risk, it can be cosmetically embarrassing since it usually appears as large brown-grey patches on the face, symmetrically on the cheeks/lips/forehead, and occasionally on the neck/arms. Though the cause of Melasma is wholly unknown, some common causative factors include:
Pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone abnormality, and prolonged exposure to sunlight
Mostly affects women, although it may occur uncommonly in men
Tends to effect a more olive or dark complexion
Is more commonly found on individuals who have a previous family history of the condition
Treatment of Melasma can be difficult, especially the more severe or “deeper” type. In fact, there is sometimes a concern the condition may worsen when treated. However, several effective treatment options are available. In our practice, we have found that Intense Pulsed Light and Chemical Peels combined with Home-Care products help to improve Melasma of different cutaneous layers and severities.
