Laser/Skin Care Treatments by AEGEA MEDI-SPA
Laser Hair Removal Technique
Laser hair removal is an increasingly popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. It is a non-invasive, convenient method to reduce hair growth. Depending on the area being treated, the process may take anywhere from 10 minutes to one hour to complete. The most commonly used lasers utilize a low energy laser beam. This beam is attracted to the pigment of the hair. The energy passes down the hair shaft and is absorbed by hair follicles that are in the active growth phase, thereby disabling the hair follicle in the deeper layer of the skin. The hair follicles that are in dormant phase are not affected by the treatment. In most cases, minimal pain should be experienced and no anesthesia is required.
Photo Rejuvenation Laser Treatment
Photo Facial uses IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology to even out skin discoloration caused by sun damage, heredity, and hormonal imbalances. Photo Facial treatments are done to the dermis correcting skin conditions such as rosacea, melasma, hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries, facial flushing, sun spots and age spots. A series of 3-5 monthly treatments are recommended, but we also offer individual spot treatments.
Laser Acne Treatments:
Laser Acne treatment is to rid the facial skin of mild to moderate acne. The heat from the laser helps to kill the bacteria and the light from the laser helps to address the current blemishes to clear them up. This treatment is suggested to be done twice a week until you have achieved the results you are looking for.
Laser Skin Tightening:
Skin Tightening uses IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology with dermal heating to stimulate and increase your body’s own collagen and elastin production causing loose skin and pores to tighten and wrinkles to fill in. The Best thing about skin tightening is there is NO DOWNTIME. Visual results can be seen after about three treatments and continue to improve throughout the series of six sessions. Treatments are performed in a series of six sessions spaced out three weeks apart. After six sessions your body will be able to maintain these elevated production levels up to six months. To help maintain these truly amazing results it is recommended that clients return for one maintenance treatment every three months.
Skin Pen Microtherapy Treatment:
The SkinPen treatment temporarily creates thousands of micro-channels which allows for superior penetration and diffusion of topicals during and post-procedure without ablation or introduction of thermal energy. Fractionated injuries are a quick, safe, and effective percutaneous collagen induction therapy. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), or micro-needling, is the procedure by which the body’s natural response to healing is used to increase the amount of extracellular matrix such as collagen or elastin in the skin. The micro-channels created by the SkinPen allow for leakage of blood, serum, and lymph in a controlled and temporary manner. These “injuries” are enough to initiate the wound healing cascade which is composed of three basic phases.

Micros are good for any skin type. They are a deep exfoliation of the face and are good for fine lines/wrinkles, acne, acne scarring, light hyper pigmentation, deep cleansing and for smoothing out the texture of the skin which allows for an all-around better appearance of the skin. Packages are recommended in order to get the best results, but individual treatments will also show immediate results.
Micropeels are painless and relaxing physical exfoliation (derma-planning) that removes dead skin cells topped with an application of a medical grade Alpha Hydroxy Acid to help stimulate healthy cell renewal. Your skin will have a healthy glow, with no down time. Visual improvement in skin is seen immediately.
