LASER is an acronym for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of radiation”.
The basis of the Laser function is burning the target chromophore.
The first laser was produced by Theodore H. Maiman in 1960 using ruby as a lasing medium that was stimulated using high-energy flashes of intense light.
We use the best-in-class laser technology to provide high-quality cosmetic dermatology treatments for our clients.
The Light 4V EVO series is one of the most advanced technologies which has been approved by the FDA and Health Canada.
The Light 4V EVO plus Erbium Series are sophisticated platform devices with a combination of features 3 true-laser wavelengths (755, 1064, and 532 nm), IPL, and ablative fractional device. Laser different wavelengths targeted different chromophores such as Hemoglobin, melanin, and water or collagen. Therefore, this technology can effectively address critical concerns:
Benign Vascular Lesions, Benign Pigmented Lesions, skin laxity and scars, Wrinkle Treatment, Pore Size, permanent Hair removal, Periorbital hyperpigmentation (POH), and skin overall radiance in all skin types.
Quanta Light EVO series with Elluminate has proven to be a very effective long-term hair removal technique.
This technology removes un-wanted hairs because targeted at the hair follicle causing the hair to fall out and prevent further growth.
Hair Growth Cycle:
It takes 6-12 weeks for a hair to grow from the papilla to the surface of the skin. Every hair in our body has 3 phases of the hair growth cycle: Anagen (active phase) 85%, Catagen (transition phase) 5% and Telogen (resting phase) 10%. The Anagen phase is the best time to target as the hair is well situated in the follicle for the photo to seek and destroy.
Due to the different cycles, 6-8 treatments are recommended on average, spaced out according to the growth cycle.

Etiology: There are many causes of vascular lesions, and they often appear as a side effect of aging.

Melasma or Mask of pregnancy is a common, harmless skin condition characterized by brown or blue-gray patches or freckle-like spots. Melasma typically darkens and lightens over time, often getting worse in the summer and better in the winter. Commonly affected areas include the face, including the cheeks, upper lip, and forehead, as well as the forearms.
Etiology of Melasma:
The epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) contains cells called melanocytes that store and produce a dark color (pigment) known as melanin.
There are two main causes of melasma:
- Radiation, whether ultraviolet, visible light or infrared (heat) light
Other possible causes of melasma include:
- Some medications such as Antiseizure medications (Clobazam), Phototoxic drugs include some antibiotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), diuretics, retinoids, hypoglycaemics, antipsychotics, targeted therapies, and some other drugs.
- Contraceptive therapy (birth control)
- Genetics: About 33% to 50%
- LED Screens: Melasma may be caused by the LED lights from your television, laptop, cell phone, and tablet.
- Makeup (cosmetics): Some cosmetics can cause what’s called a phototoxic reaction.
- Skincare products
- Some scented soaps
- Tanning beds
The three types of melasma are:
- Epidermal: Epidermal melasma has a dark brown color. Sometimes responds well to treatment.
- Dermal: Dermal melasma has a light brown or bluish color, a blurry border, and doesn’t respond well to treatment.
- Mixed melasma: Mixed melasma, which is the most common of the three, has both bluish and brown patches and shows some response to treatment.
Treatment of Melasma:
Melasma is hard to treat. To determine a treatment plan, your healthcare provider will have to first figure out what’s possibly causing the melasma.
- To make sure that it doesn’t get any worse.
- Do this by avoiding the sun, tanning beds, LED screens, irritating soaps, and birth control that includes hormones.
- An SPF of 30-50 is applied every two hours
- Use a wide-brimmed hat
- To take topical medications. Topical therapy using tyrosinase inhibitors prevents new pigment formations by stopping the formation of melanin (the dark color) like Azelaic acid, Cysteamine, Hydrocortisone, Hydroquinone, Methimazole, Soybean extract, Topical alpha hydroxy acid, Tranexamic acid, Tretinoin
- Clinical treatments;
- Regular microdermabrasion
- Chemical peeling
