Cellulite?

VelaShape II at Privé MEDSPA

VelaShape™ is the only FDA cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas in as little as 4 treatments.

VelaShape™ features the revolutionary elōs™ combination of Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage. The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime. Vacuum and specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers.

The result:
Gradual smoothing of skin's surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
Circumferential Reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area
In a clinical multi-center study, 85% of the treated areas have reported Circumferential Reduction of thighs of at least 1cm; ranging up to 7.2cm in reduction.
With VelaShape™ it is easy to enhance your body, improve your lifestyle and feel better about yourself!

Fat Removal & Body Sculpting?

UltraShape V3™ at Privé MEDSPA

The UltraShape V3 uses Pulsed Focused Ultrasound for fat removal and skin tightening for amazing body shaping and contouring possibilities. It is especially effective for trimming your shape after weight loss. Privé MEDSPA uses UltraShape technology which safely and effectively, and selectively breaks down unwanted fat deposits in a targeted body area. Pulses of focused ultrasonic energy destroy fat cell membranes, releasing their contents into the lymphatic system where they are then safely cleared by the body’s natural metabolic processes. Published clinical studies show that three UltraShape treatments can reduce waist size or thighs by an average of 4 cm. Destroyed, “UltraShape” fat cells are gone forever! 



Benefits:

• Delivers smooth, uniform results: state-of-the-art tracking and guidance technology ensures the treatment leaves no dimpling or contour irregularities on your body. 

• Safe: there is no damage to surrounding tissue, nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

• Comfortable and convenient: the walk-in-walk out, non-surgical, office-based procedure requires no anesthesia, sedation, incisions, needles, or maintenance treatments.

• Has no downtime: whether it is back to work, the gym or even the beach, you can resume your daily routine immediately after treatment

• Effective: results for UltraShape ultrasound fat removal and skin tightening are definite, durable and backed by extensive clinical trials.

What is the UltraShape procedure?

The clinically-proven UltraShape procedure is the most widely used non-invasive solution for fat destruction and body sculpting. It uses pulsed focused ultrasound to target and reduce unwanted localized fat deposits, reduce body circumference and improve body shape. The new V3 system also uses integrated vacuum-assisted Radio-Frequency to enhance fat cell destruction, expedite fat clearance and tighten skin.



Who is it for?

The UltraShape treatment has been designed to help average to overweight men and women acquire an improved body shape and contour. It offers a non-surgical alternative to patients seeking effective reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery.



What body areas are treated?


The UltraShape treatment focuses on the abdomen, thighs (“saddle bags”), buttocks, and flanks (“love handles").




What results can I expect?


Clinical results show that in three treatments, patients see an average of 4 cm reduction in circumference. A three treatment regimen is recommended to achieve maximum results. As with any non-invasive procedure the results you see may differ from the clinical trial results and patient to patient.

What does the procedure feel like?

Patients usually report feeling light-to-moderate tingling or warmth in the treated area, with minimal discomfort.



What happens after treatment?

There is no downtime or recovery time associated with the UltraShape procedure. You can resume your daily routine immediately after treatment and there is no need for maintenance treatments. All you need to do is maintain a healthy diet and routine exercise to maximize results.



How long will it take to see results?

After the UltraShape procedure, released contents of the broken-down fat cells are naturally cleared by the body over a 2-4 week period. Circumference and fat thickness reduction is usually seen within the first 14 - 28 days post treatment. Maximum results are seen about 28 days post the final treatment.



How does the UltraShape technology work?

The patented UltraShape technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled pulsed focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down and surrounding important structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue remain intact. The treatment area is marked and each point within that designated area is treated only once to ensure complete and uniform treatment.

What happens to the fat after the UltraShape procedure?

During the UltraShape procedure, the fat cells are destroyed. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is broken down and transported to the liver. The fat is processed via the body's natural mechanisms and turns into building blocks for energy.

Are there any side effects?

Extensive clinical trials and over 200,000 patient treatments performed worldwide have demonstrated the excellent safety profile of the UltraShape procedure.



What makes the UltraShape procedure unique?


Body sculpting with UltraShape delivers measurable, long-lasting circumference reduction in target body areas, and provides the following benefits:
Non-invasive – The procedure is totally non-invasive and reduces the fat thickness and circumference of the treated area with no incisions, cannulas, injections or needles.
Safe – The focused ultrasound causes a mechanical (non-thermal) effect that selectively targets and breaks down only fat cells without affecting the surrounding blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue.
Effective – After three sessions, patients experience an average of 4 cm reduction in body circumference. These results have been proven in clinical studies and are demonstrated in the hundreds of thousands of treatments performed worldwide. The results you experience may vary.
Comfort – The vast majority of people who have undergone the UltraShape body sculpting procedure report minimal discomfort. There is no anesthesia or sedation required. You simply lie on the bed and the technician guides a handheld device that delivers the focused ultrasound energy over your body.

How long will the results last?


Just as with liposuction, once fat cells are removed from the treatment area the results are expected to be long lasting, as long as you maintain your weight with a healthy diet and exercise.

How does the UltraShape procedure differ from other non- invasive body contouring treatments, which are based on lymphatic massage or radio- frequency technologies?


The UltraShape procedure uses pulsed focused ultrasound energy which selectively target and permanently destroys fat cells in the underlying fat layers. This is different from other non-invasive body contouring treatments, which may only enhance the lymphatic system activity to increase lymphatic drainage. Those treatments may only temporarily reduce the volume of the fat cells, not destroy and reduce the number of fat cells therefore the results are temporary and maintenance treatments are required. UltraShape destroys the fat cells in the focal area and increases blood circulation and lymphatic system activity to expedite the clearance of the liquefied fat. The results are long lasting.

How does the UltraShape procedure differ from other non-invasive ultrasound treatments for body contouring?

UltraShape uses pulsed focused ultrasound energy which selectively targets and destroys fat cells. Other ultrasound technology uses non-focused standard ultrasound, which cannot break down fat cells.

UltraShape is the only system in the world to use a unique real-time tracking and guidance system for 3D mapping of the body’s curvature to ensure complete and uniform energy delivery over the entire treatment area, minimizing the risk of contour irregularities, a common side effect of liposuction.

Unlike many other non-invasive treatments UltraShape is scientifically and clinically proven safe and effective. It has more than 7 peer-reviewed published articles and book chapters and has been widely tested by the world's most prestigious doctors.

Fine Wrinkles?

BOTOX Cosmetic Treatments for Wrinkles

As we age, most of us notice lines between our brows, around the corners of the eyes and across the forehead. BOTOX is a common treatment for these areas. It can also be used to treat the lower face – muscles that cause the corners of the mouth to turn down or the chin to have a pitted appearance.

We use gold standard injection techniques to ensure accuracy and minimal trauma to the skin. We strive for a natural, elegant relaxed look. The effects of BOTOX start to be noticed 4 to 7 days after treatment, and the final result within 2 weeks. The effects will often last about 3 months. We educate you on how much you need to achieve the desired effect and we review post procedure instructions so you will feel safe and confident with your treatment. We encourage a follow up visit to ensure you are happy with your results.

A combination of therapies including BOTOX, JUVEDERM dermal filler and laser procedures gives our patients optimal results. These treatments can be done together, or in a stepwise manner to fit your budget to give you the results you want.

What is BOTOX?
BOTOX, introduced in 2002, is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA to temporarily relax muscles. Approximately 11.8 million procedures have been administered in the United States since 2002. It provides measureable results without any surgery or recovery time required, but is just some of the many reasons it continues to be chosen by millions of people and their doctors.

Skin Discoloration?

CO2RE Fractional Laser at Privé MEDSPA

CO2RE Laser Peel Facial is ideal for removing superficial pigment changes that develop over time due to aging and sun exposure. Improves skin tone and gets rid of annoying age spots on face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. Helps diminish discoloration associated with acne scarring.

Benefit: Clear and vibrant looking skin with a smoother texture.

What is the CO2RE Laser Peel Facial?

The CO2RE Laser Peel Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using CO2RE Fractional LASER. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.



What areas can be treated?

The CO2RE Laser Peel Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.



What does the treatment do?

By selecting Program light or medium, your practitioner can customize your CO2RE Laser Peel Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.



What do treatments feel like?

When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.



How long will the treatments take?

Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.



How many treatments will I need?

One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sundamaged skin.



What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.



When will I see results?

Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.



Will the spots and redness reappear over time?

New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness.

Sun Damage?

CO2RE Fractional Laser at Privé MEDSPA

The CO2RE Fractional Laser procedure combines the impact of resurfacing lasers with the gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat aging and sun-damaged skin. CO2RE Fractional Laser reduces wrinkles, uneven texture and sun damage with fewer treatments and less overall recovery than other technologies to provide new healthy skin with a pearl-like glow.

Benefit: New healthy layer of skin - overall skin clarity, smoothness, and softness.

What is CO2RE Fractional Laser?
CO2RE Fractional Laser is the “one laser to choose” to renew your skin’s surface with quick, visible results. CO2RE Fractional Laser treats fine lines on the face and neck, uneven skin texture and light & dark spots caused by sun damage.



The CO2RE Fractional Laser Procedure


During a CO2RE Fractional Laser treatment, the top layer of the skin is treated with pulses of light. A portion of the epidermis (skin surface) is gently removed and a natural protective dressing is formed on the skin’s surface. Most patients feel a series of brief pinches during the treatments. After 3-4 days, the protective dressing peels off revealing new, healthy, vibrant skin underneath.

The CO2RE Fractional Laser replaces the entire top sun-damaged layer of skin with new healthy skin. Simultaneously, it sends heat to deeper layers of the skin stimulating new collagen growth, filling out and decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. New collagen growth continues for 4 to 6 weeks post-treatment. The combination of new skin and decreased wrinkles results in a healthier, more youthful appearance.

Unlike “fractional” treatments, CO2RE Fractional Laser treats the entire face, minimizing the number of required treatments. Typically, only 1-2 treatments are necessary to renew your skin.

Loose Skin?

VContour at Privé MEDSPA

VContour™ Tightens skin to minimize wrinkles and laxity. This comfortable procedure gently heats the reticular dermis to stimulate new collagen and elastin growth to firm your skin. Skin tone is enhanced, lines and wrinkles are reduced. Tone and texture continues to improve after a single treatment, although a series of 6 - 8 treatments 1 week apart is usually recommended. VContour™ is ideal for the lower face, around the eyes, jaw line, neck and abdomen.

Benefit: Firmer, tighter skin resulting in a more defined youthful silhouette.

The VContour™ gives you an all-natural option to enhance skin tone. VContour™ uses infra red light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin's surface. Without surgery, recovery time, or injections, Titan is an ideal solution for your face, abdomen, arms and more.

How does the VContour™work?
VContour™uses a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin's surface. During the procedure, the skin's surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the VContour™ handpiece.

The VContour™ difference
VContour's light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radio-frequency).

Who can be treated?
Since the VContour™ procedure heats tissue under the skin's surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated. Your practitioner can advise you if the VContour™ is right for you.

Lost Fullness In Your Face?

JUVEDERM Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are often called a “liquid facelift” because they are a non-surgical alternative for rejuvenating the face. Dermal fillers restore volume loss that occurs over time due to aging and sun exposure. Hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in our body, is injected below the skin’s surface to diminish facial folds, lines and wrinkles; increase and enhance volume in the mid-face, cheeks, lower face, jaw line, eyebrows and lips to restore a youthful appearance. JUVEDERM® is highly effective in association with light and laser based treatments. Our physicians are highly skilled and experienced with injections. You will feel comfortable, safe and confident in their care.

JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA™ is a new facial filler specifically designed for gently restoring natural-looking lip volume and defining lip contours. JUVEDERM®'s unique VYCROSS™ technology in this product is designed to result in less swelling and delivers a natural look and feel.  The effect is instant and long lasting.  It is the only facial filler clinically proven to last up to 12 months in the lips with a single treatment.

JUVEDERM® + BOTOX® = SOFT LIFT

A SOFT LIFTTM makeover allows you to target multiple issues arising from aging skin in just one treatment. It combines the use of JUVEDERM® facial fillers with BOTOX® injections to instantly refresh your look. SOFT LIFTTM deals with both wrinkles and a loss of fullness. It can also address crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines between your brows.

The result is a firmer, more relaxed looking face with softer lines that refreshes your look.

The combination of these two treatments affects your appearance more dramatically than either treatment on its own giving you a more youthful face and lip shape with firmer skin, as can be seen in the before and after pictures below.

Laser Skin Resurfacing with more flexible downtime?

CO2RE Fractional Laser at Privé MEDSPA

CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatments target both the surface and deeper layers of the skin using patented fractional laser technology to target aging and sun damaged skin. This safe, non-ablative skin procedure will make the surface of your skin feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The specific number of treatments is tailored to your goals as well as your lifestyle and is an excellent laser resurfacing treatment for face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, back and stomach areas. 



CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatments target both the surface and deeper layers of the skin for a smoother, fresher, younger looking appearance.

Benefits:
• Improved tone and texture
• Reduced wrinkles around the eyes
• Erasing of unwanted brown spots
• Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
• FDA approved to treat pre-cancerous lesions – actinic keratosis
• Excellent treatment for face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, back and stomach

The CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing uses patented fractional laser technology to target aging and sun damaged skin. The CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatment is a safe, non-ablative skin procedure that can resurface damaged skin to uncover the youthful, healthy skin you want. CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing is the trusted name in fractional laser skin resurfacing. Ask for CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing by name!

How does this fractional technology work?
CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing uses a non-ablative technology that does not break the skin. Fractional microscopic laser columns treat only a fraction of the tissue at a time, which means surrounding skin is untouched. This allows for a high degree of targeting, more accelerated healing and more flexible downtime for CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing clients.

What results can clients expect?
The great thing about CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatments is that results are visible very quickly with continuing improvement over time. Right away, skin will look fresher and more even and feel smoother and softer. But the benefits continue over the next 3 to 6 months as new collagen is created by deeper layers of skin. Your skin condition and skin care regime along with your age and lifestyle determine how long lasting the results are.

What commitment is required?
Usually one to six treatments are required depending upon the condition being treated, with these treatments being schedule four to six weeks apart. The actual treatment itself requires about two hours of your time. The recovery downtime required is more flexible than that of treatments like our Chemical Peel process. In fact, the CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing procedure is a great one for men because you can often be shaving the next day. Depending upon the level of treatment, your face will move from a sunburned to bronzed appearance, exfoliating naturally and revealing the fresher, smoother skin underneath.

How safe is CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
This technique and technology has been extensively researched to provide the optimum in safety, but there is always a risk with any laser procedure. Our experienced PERFECT STYLE clinicians will be happy to answer any questions you may have before proceeding with treatment.

Fine Lines, Large Pores & Uneven Skin?

Laser Genesis at Privé MEDSPA

Laser Genesis: Experience this comfortable laser treatment that diminishes fine lines, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness, rosacea and minimizes scars. This treatment addresses skin renewal in the papillary dermis by stimulating collagen and targeting hemoglobin to decrease redness. Helps to minimize red discoloration and uneven texture associated with acne scarring. A series of 4 to 6 treatments is recommended 2 to 4 weeks apart.

Benefit: Creamier, healthier complexion, silky smooth texture, firmer and more radiant skin.

Laser Genesis skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women. Now you can have a youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine-line wrinkles. The Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen.



The Laser Genesis difference.


The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine-line wrinkles, diffuse and excessive redness and help manage large pores, uneven skin texture, and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.



How does Laser Genesis work?


By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin's surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.



How many treatments will I need?


The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient's condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your healthcare professional.



What are the possible side effects?


Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your healthcare professional for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.



What kind of textural improvements can you expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy?


Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin's youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven texture caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a more even, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.


Excessive Sweating?

BOTOX®

Severe Primary Axillary Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating from your armpits, is an embarrassing and inconvenient medical condition, which can complicate your professional and personal relationships. The good news is that it can be treated with BOTOX® injections.

Does This Sound Like You?

  • Are you changing your clothes multiple times during the day because you are sweating too much?
  • Do you carry extra clothing and supplies just in case?
  • Have you tried prescription antiperspirants?
  • Does excessive underarm sweating interfere with your daily activities?

PERFECT STYLE Can Help with Excessive Underarm Sweating

BOTOX® is a very safe, effective treatment for this problem. A series of injections are administered. This temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. Decreased stimulation means no sweating! The effects can last up to a year (although individual results may vary).

Unwanted Hair?

GentleYAG Laser at Privé MEDSPA

Unwanted hair is a common problem for both men and women, especially as we get older. PERFECT STYLE Clinic uses the latest laser hair removal technologies from Candela - GentleYag. More effective and less painful than razors, waxing and electrolysis, this procedure offers a permanent solution to an age old problem. It is gentle and safe enough to be used on any skin type because it can be programmed to match any skin color and includes a cooling system that protects the surface of your skin. Most areas require 6 to 8 treatments, depending on hair thickness, the area treated and the hair’s growth cycle.

Benefit: Gives a clean well-kept appearance with touchable soft skin while reducing time spent managing unwanted hair.

Now men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past - thanks to the GentleYag Laser. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! The GentleYag laser delivers 21st century technology for treatment of this distressing problem. Cleared for permanent hair reduction, the GentleYag laser can treat men and women of all skin types safely and effectively, year-round. Even patients with a suntan.

The GentleYag Difference

The GentleYag was designed to be the most outstanding laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.



What do GentleYag treatments feel like?


As the name implies, the GentleYag handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.



How many treatments will I need?


Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of GentleYag treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors - hair thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. GentleYag treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.



What happens after the treatment?


Immediately following your GentleYag treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.



What are the possible side effects?


Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.



How does the GentleYag compare with electrolysis?


Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, the GentleYag effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.

Visible Veins?

VBeam Laser at Privé MEDSPA

Safely and effectively treats superficial red and blue veins, telangectasia, hemangiomas, port wine stains and spider veins. Experience outstanding results for dark, light or tanned skin with minimal bruising.

Vbeam Vascular Laser at Privé MEDSPA

Benefit: Reduces redness, veins and creates clear, healthy looking skin.

Now men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to the Candela V-Beam Laser. No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the Candela V-Beam Laser can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.

The Candela V-Beam Laser difference.

The Candela V-Beam Laser combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering.



How does Candela V-Beam Laser Vein Therapy work?


The Candela V-Beam Laser systems deliver 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.



How many treatments will I need?


Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.



Do the treatments hurt?


Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.



What are the possible side effects?


Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.



When will I see results?


Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the Candela V-Beam Laser.

Skin Damaged by ACNE & the Sun?

Medical Skin Peels

In-office epidermal peels are a non-invasive way to immediately resurface and improve  the health of skin with no downtime.

Who can benefit from a chemical peel?
Anyone who wants to combat the look of aging, acne, hyperpigmentation, or skin imperfections.  Blends of peeling agents such as alpha-hydroxy acids, anti-oxidants and treatment ingredients safely remove superficial cell layers. Stimulates cell renewal while minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, repairing photo damage, hyperpigmentation, acne and scarring.

Peels are one of many treatments for acne, along with proper cleansers, topical agents and in some cases oral medications.  Our physicians can help you get acne under control.

Chemical peels are a one-step clinical procedure of chemical exfoliation, recommended in a series of 4 to 6 treatments.
Micropeel Plus 20% and 30% helps treat aging or acne prone skin with Salicylic acid as the active ingredient.
Pigment Balancing Masque improves the look of hyperpigmentation, melasma and uneven skin tone. Glycolic acid 40%, Citric acid 10%, Vitamin C 27%, Emblica 4% are the active ingredients.

Benefit: Leaves your skin looking clear, smooth and feeling fresh.

Uneven Skin Tone & Texture?

HydraFacial MD at Privé MEDSPA

HydraFacial MD® and/or Microdermabrasion are very comfortable manual exfoliation treatments that improves skin tone and texture over the face, neck and chest.  Crystal free, using a stainless steel abrasive paddle, we safely exfoliate 75% of the stratum corneum layer, revealing soft, smooth, clear skin.  Excellent for acne, aging skin, sun damage, texture, and before laser treatments.

Benefit: Promotes soft smooth texture, and flawless complexion.

Toenail Fungus & Warts?

GentleYAG Laser at Privé MEDSPA

Long Pulsed Nd:Yag Laser: Tiny pulses of light from the laser pass through the toenail to the fungus underneath. The fungus is irradiated without any damage to the surrounding nail or skin.

How long does the procedure take?

About 30 minutes.



Is it painful?
Most people feel a slight warming sensation during the procedure. No pain medication is needed and most people find the treatment very easy to tolerate.



How many treatments will I need?

Consult your provider. Many patients only need 2 or 3 treatments. 



Are there any restrictions on my activity post procedure?

You can resume your normal activities immediately.



When will I see results?

You won’t notice anything immediately following treatment. However, as your nail grows out, the new nail growth should be clear. Toe nails grow slowly – especially nails infected with fungus. So, it may take 6-12 months for your toenail to clear.



Will the fungus come back?

Reinfection with toenail fungus may be acquired anywhere from your environment, for example, in damp areas such as public swimming pools, Hotels, gyms. Consult with your healthcare professional to understand how to prevent toenail fungus from re-occurring.



When can I apply nail polish?

While it is important to remove nail polish, decoration and jewelry prior to treatment, you can reapply nail polish 24 hours after treatment.



How does laser compare to other toenail fungus treatments?

Traditional treatments such as nail trimming, topical medication, oral medication or nail removal have significant drawbacks. Nail trimming doesn’t treat the fungus. Topical medications need to be applied for 12 months and have a low success rate. Oral medications are taken for 3 months but can cause liver or kidney problems. Laser is a quick, easy, safe, effective procedure that treats the fungus at the source.
