** It is important you do not participate in laser treatment if you are currently taking or have taken prescriptions for acne in the past 6 months, as the chance of burning from laser treatments increases dramatically.**

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal targets the hair structure, from the hair shaft down to the hair follicle. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, where the pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the light from the laser and heats up. When the follicle heats up, it becomes damaged which inhibits the hair follicles regenerative properties, achieving permanent hair removal. The laser is able to achieve this by settings determined in accordance to an individual’s hair type and color, skin type as well as providing the maximum amount of skin protection. The effectiveness of treatment will depend on the amount of energy that can be handled by an individual. That takes into account the lasers wavelength, pulse duration, amount of hair, and the area being treated.

The amount of sessions need does vary from person to person, but the norm is typically 5-6 sessions.

To prepare for laser hair removal treatment it is important not to tweeze, wax, use an epilator or to use a depilatory (hair removal cream) for at least six weeks before treatment.

Skin Rejuvenation

For skin rejuvenation unlike any other, you’ve come to the right place. At Patty Gourgaris Laser Skin Studio, we provide rejuvenation services to restore your skin and leave you feeling smooth, bright, and content once again.

SkinPen

Microneedling

Microneedling is a safe and effective way to achieve brighter, tighter, beautiful skin. All of our microneedling treatments are performed with SkinPen. SkinPen microneedling device has been approved by Health Canada and cleared by the FDA to treat acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, pigmentation and more! The treatment involves creating micro-injuries to the skin to trigger the skin’s natural healing process and the production of cytokines and growth factors that lead to the production of collagen and elastin. The treatment is comfortable, minimally invasive with little downtime, effective for all skin types, can be done any time of the year.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)/Photorejuvenation

IPL is a skin treatment that is used to improve a variety of skin conditions of the face and body. The Lumenis IPL with OPT is considered the industry’s ‘Gold Standard’ for treatment.The treatment can be used to help reverse signs of aging such as sun damage, freckles, brown spots, fine lines as well as skin conditions like hyper-pigmentation and rosacea. This can all be done whilst also improving the overall appearance of the skin tone as the light pulses encourage the production of collagen to thicken the skin create that more even tone.

Facial Veins

IPL is effective to minimize and sometimes even eliminate the appearance of broken capillaries. This happens through the wavelengths being discharged from the laser through the skin. The capillaries attract these wavelengths, heat up, and become weakened all without harming the outer layers of the skin. The weakened capillaries cannot be repaired and begin to fade.

Rosacea Treatments

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that primarily affects the face. Rosacea is characterized by facial redness that usually begins in the center of the face and can spread across to the ears and sometimes even down onto the neck and chest. Rosacea is caused by dilated blood vessels and chronic flushing, it can also look like pimples and blisters on the face.

Rosacea can be treated using IPL treatment. The treatment removes facial superficial vessels, which results in noticeably decreased or eliminated facial redness. Controlled light pulses in specific wavelengths are used to reduce the inflammation, redness, pimples and uneven skin tone caused by the condition while simultaneously triggering neocollagenesis which limits the recurrence of the condition.

Electrolysis

Electrolysis can be used on any skin type to remove unwanted hair. It works by inserting a probe along the hair into the follicle. The probe then delivers an electric current into the follicle to damage it.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin. To accomplish this task, the chosen peel solution induces a controlled injury to the skin. Resulting in the healing processes begin to regenerate new tissues. The dead skin eventually peels off. The regenerated skin is smoother than the old skin. Each chemical peel is customized for each individual depending on skin type and concerns. There is usually no down time. Flaking skin can occur about four days after treatment for most people.

Pigmentation

Skin pigmentation can be caused by a number of different factors, most commonly from spending too much time in the sun. Pigmentation is often in the form of freckles, age spots or larger patches of discolored skin. The laser is attracted to the melanin in the skin. The melanin absorbs the light without harming surrounding tissue and is drawn to the surface where the pigmentation spots dry and flake off.

The pulse of light not only helps to reduce the appearance of sunspots, but also capillaries, elastosis and fine lines.

Acne Treatment

Acne Treatments

Laser treatment for acne and acne scarring is popular for those who have tried other methods of treatment or who want to enhance the results of microdermabrasion or chemical peel treatment. The laser emits a gentle beam to the acne/acne scar affected area. The light is absorbed by the damaged cells triggering a healing response. Treatment can effectively repairs uneven texture, indentation and raised tissue.
