Laser Treatment; Fort Collins Facial


Who needs a revolutionary limelight laser facial? Anyone that wants to revitalize their skin of age spots, sun-induced freckles, brown spots, skin redness (rosacea), birthmarks, acne scarring and other blemishes. Limelight laser treatment can also be done to your chest, shoulders, and arms (areas with sun exposure). The LimeLight Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin revitalization using Cutera’s LimeLight. Who doesn’t want to improve their skin tone and skins surface imperfections from aging and sun damage?

Limelight is an FDA-cleared, patented technology which provides dramatic results. There is no need to apply topical anesthetic beforehand. Virtually any part of your body with uneven skin tone, redness, or sun and age spots can be safely treated.

Here’s how LimeLight works- it uses light to heat the pigment in the top layer of your skin. Unlike other options, LimeLight treats specific areas without abrading the surface of the skin. There is no need to interrupt your regular skin care routine.

When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel comfortable and cool. When the pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a brief, mild stinging sensation. Immediately following treatment, the spots may begin to darken, and the surrounding skin may slightly redden. Typically, within a few hours this subsides. Over the next few weeks, the darkened spots will fade and flake off. However, your final result may not be apparent for several months.

Who is eligible for this procedure? Anyone with a light or medium skin tone may be a candidate for LimeLight. Those with darker skin tones may not. We will assess your particular situation and let you know if you are a good candidate for LimeLight during a consultation.

Laser Vein Removal in Fort Collins

Veins. We all have them. Many of us also have unsightly veins that may cause shame or embarrassment. We may even feel the need to dress to cover up our veins. There’s no need to let unsightly veins stop you from participating in events with scantier clothing, such as bathing suits, or from wearing what you want!

About 50 to 55 percent of women and 40 to 45 percent of men in the United States suffer from some type of vein problem.

Varicose veins affect half of people 50 years and older. Varicose veins are enlarged veins that can be blue, red, or flesh-colored. They often look like cords and appear twisted and bulging. They can be swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are often found on the thighs, backs of the calves, or the inside of the leg.

Spider veins are like varicose veins but smaller. They also are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. Often, they are red or blue. They can look like tree branches or spiderwebs with their short, jagged lines. They can be found on the legs and face and can cover either a very small or very large area of skin.

Factors such as increasing age, medical history, hormonal changes, pregnancy, obesity, lack of movement, and sun exposure can all increase risk of spider and varicose veins.

The good news is, spider and varicose veins can be treated with the Xeo laser right here in our medi-spa in Fort Collins! The simple laser vein treatment is done on the outside of your skin. The Xeo delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be. You will be able to walk following the treatment, and recovery typically is short. You are likely to be able to return to your normal daily routine after simple laser treatment.

Fort Collins Spa; Natural Healthy Skin

The skin is the largest organ of your entire body. Many don’t know this but the skin is one of the body’s ways of naturally eliminating toxins. What comes in must come out somehow. Sweat is an example of natural elimination. Acne too is a natural elimination of bacteria, hormones, pollutants and oils.

Make up can enhance your skin’s natural beauty when used appropriately. Still, it can also hinder the health of your skin of used too liberally. It can also make your skin look a hundred times worse if you use the wrong products or color. It can increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth. It can cast an off-putting tone on your complexion. Unhealthy toxins from the makeup’s ingredients can seep into your pores causing further irritation.

Fundamentally, make up is not a “cover up” that you want to rely on. Healthy, nourished, clean and balanced skin will bring out your natural beauty and enhance your finest qualities.

When patients come to me I do a complete skin analysis and what I’m looking for is to treat your whole body. I see your skin as symptomatic of your overall health. Rosacea, acne and some kinds of discoloration point to hormonal problems and inflammation. Flaky dry skin can point to dehydration.

We discuss what kinds of lifestyle changes you can make, in addition to what kind of Fort Collins spa treatments will be most beneficial to restoring the balance and glow to your skin.

These are 100% customized to what is going on with you. There is no one fix that is universal to all skin types. We then work out a treatment plan which will bring your skin back to a natural healthy glow. This might be a laser treatment or a chemical peel mask or a specialized product for daily use.

Don’t hide behind makeup. Your skin will always tell the truth. Schedule an appointment or consultation and be proactive about restoring your skin and your whole self to health.
