Laser Skin Resurfacing
During a laser facial procedure, a pulsed laser light penetrates the skin, removing small columns of tissue and depositing heat into the deeper layers of the skin. In this way, the damaged, superficial layers of skin are able to slough off, while the deeper layers of cells are stimulated to produce fresh, healthy cells and more collagen and elastin fibers, which provides your skin with youthful suppleness, tightness, and tone.
Laser Pigmentation Removal
Hyper-pigmentation is the over production of melanin pigment in the skin. This can occur on men and women and it is one of the first signs that appear due to excessive sun exposure. Other causes of hyper-pigmentation can occur from hormonal sources or by irritation or injury to the skin. Treatments are safe & effective.
- Good for the removal of medium to dark brown spots or stains on the face or body. Sun or age spots can be reduced on the hands and arms as well.
- Good for the reduction of sun spots or age spots, also called liver spots.
Most hyper-pigmentation is considerably improved with multiple treatments. Most face & body areas can be treated.
Laser Spider Vein Removal
The learner will study the vascular system and its vessels, in particular the study of dilated blood vessels. The learner will also gain extensive practical skills to successfully apply the medical devices to reduce and remove spider veins from the face and legs. Consultations, analysis, client/patient pre & post care and following proper sanitation & laser safety protocols for themselves and their patients is an essential clinical aspect. This laser treatment are safe and effective.
- Excellent for facial redness or blotchiness due to fine dilated capillaries of the face.
- Excellent for Rosacea conditions.
- Good for fine dilated capillaries or the thread-like veins of the legs, typically called “spider veins”.

For the esthetician or student of esthetics, now you can advance your knowledge and skills into the area of cosmetic medical rejuvenation. Studies include the most common injectables used for rejuvenation by physicians today.? Learn procedures to assist the physician. Study the technology behind the light & lasers use for treating the skin. This course familiarizes the student with the most common of the photo-rejuvenation technologies:? the LED & IPL devices. Photo rejuvenation is proven to:
- Significantly and painlessly reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- No side effects or no thermal injury to the skin.
- Brightens the complexion.
- Diminishes the pore size by boosting the skin's own production of collagen.
- Diminishes inflammation of the skin.
Results are progressive and are even more enhanced when combined with other cosmetic treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels to treat both of the upper layers and the deeper layers of the skin for a winning combination on two levels.

Patients (identified with number) were between 38 and 61 years of age.It is important to carefully select patients and
to set realistic expectations in order to achieve a greater likelihood of success.
These case studies represent combination therapy treatments performed on a wide range of participants.
The majority was satisfied with results, did not experience any adverse reactions and was not inconvenienced by down time.
Tests started in late August and ended in late October 2009. Patients therefore had remnants of summer tans.
The patients were asked to sign a consent form and provide a detailed medical history to make sure there were no
contraindications. The skin was cleaned and photographed with a Nikon digital camera (11 mega-pixel).
Microdermabrasion, using corundum crystal, was only performed as part of the first treatment.

A safe, non-invasive, effective treatment for embarrassing skin blemishes, ruby points, skin tags, and blotches.
Once they form, broken capillaries will not disappear on their own.
But, they can be permanently removed by the VascuLyse.
The VascuLyse uses a mild current to induce coagulation within the
distended capillary. The body then absorbs the unused capillary. This treatment
is called capillary coalysis, the process by which unsightly, distended capillaries are absorbed and
eliminated by the body.
What are AFA's™?
AFAs are a new, unique, and fully patented (U.S. Patent # 6197317 and 6703030) cosmeceutical. In fact, AFAs, we believe, are the first cosmeceutical to be patented in this millennium. AFAs are based on the same natural acidic amino acids that serve to retain moisture in human skin. They are also potent antioxidants and extremely helpful against photo pigmentation. They are remarkably free of irritation at effective pH levels.
AFAs are the first cosmeceutical ever to utilize these valuable acidic amino acids as part of a skin care regimen. Independent Board Certified Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons have clinically tested AFAs for over three years and there have been no adverse incidences reported as a result of their use.
"AFA" is an acronym for Amino acid Filaggrin based Antioxidants. Filaggrin is a protein that occurs in the upper layer of the skin, the epidermis. Filaggrin is metabolized in the epidermis into several acidic amino acids and these amino acids are the primary agents responsible for the skin's ability to retain moisture. They are also the same amino acids used to produce AFAs.
AFAs have 7 unique advantages as topical anti-aging cosmeceuticals
1. AFAs promote greater moisture retention in human skin
2. AFAs have 3 fold greater antioxidant potency than AHAs
3. AFAs are very effective exfoliants
4. Patients notice visible improvement quickly (often within a few days)
5. AFAs are more powerful against photo-pigmentation
6. AFAs have little irritation when compared to AHAs
7. AFAs are not photosensitizing
