CONSULT. Want a consult today and treatment later? Consult fee (50) will determine the best procedural plan or combination plan to achieve your skin goals. This fee can be applied towards your first appointment with the provider you consulted with!


C02 Fractional Laser

This is our strongest laser skin resurfacing treatment that targets both the epidermis and the dermis, treating fine and deep lines, freckles, sunspots, broken capilaries, redness from blood vessels, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, melasma, and dark circles under the eyes. Also treating hollowness under the eyes with the stimulation of collagen formation from heat. Collagen builidng continues to form for up to 18 months following your treatment. This procedure resurfaces your entire skin and is THE best way to get rid of acne scarring and make new beautiful skin.

DOWNTIME? At least 7 days could be up to 14. Generally there is peeling of the skin by the third day. Requires post procedural barrier ointment. No sun/wind exposure for minimum 14-21 days.

HOW OFTEN? Varies dependent on skin goals. Regular maintenance for most people recommended 2 treatments a year (or every 6 months). For patients with scarring we recommend usually 3-5 treatments spaced one month apart. Some studies with fractional have shown success with treatments done 2 weeks apart. However, it depends on how aggressive the patient wants to treat issue and our assessment on whether her or his skin heals quickly and well.

MICRO LASER PEEL uses the ERBIUM LASER and is a lighter resurfacing treatment that targets the epidermis only. It helps treat fine lines, retexturing, and skin dullness, while also aiding in collagen production. This service is recommended to just about everyone! If you like chemical peels, you will be amazed at how much quicker you can achieve your skin goals with this treatment!

DOWNTIME? Approx 3 days. There may be peeling/there may not be.

HOW OFTEN? To maintain youthful skin, this treament is recommended 4 times a year (or every 3 months) and treatment specifically for skin issues is usually 3-5 treatments spaced one month apart. For more agressive treatment you can do a treatment once a month.

KTP Aura Laser for broken capillaries

The KTP AURA LASER dramatically eliminates small red vessels or capillaries on the face, neck and chest without any down time. This laser is ideal for visible vessels, as oppposed to background redness which may be better treated by other modalities such as IPL. Treats browns (freckles, sun spots, senile warts) and reds (capillaries).

DOWNTIME? No downtime. Carry on with your work and day! The browns should peel/slough off in 3-5 days, and the reds (capillaries) should look just pink instead of distinct capillaries under the skin

HOW OFTEN? Patients may need to come back for more treatments in order to get rid of all the pigment(s).

Before booking your first session, please let us know the answers to the following questions. This will help us determine which type of laser we should use for you for best results with your skin type.

1) What is your skintone/ethnicity?

2) After exposure to the sun, do you a) always burn, never tan b) always burn, sometimes tan c) sometimes burn, sometimes tan d) always tan, never burn?

Recommendations We recommend that you NOT wax, pluck or tweeze the area being treated for at least 4 weeks prior to the treatment. However, we DO ask that you shave prior to the treatment; this will help make the treatment more comfortable, so that we can target the hair at the follicle level. You also want to make sure that you do not have significant sun exposure / sunburn / tanning a couple weeks before and after treatment. We cannot perform the treatment if you have recently tanned (including spray tan) in the area being treated. Most people can expect to see about a reduction in hair after each treatment. We recommend a series to everyone as you will need touch ups. We practice safety and so we draw a safe line at no LHR during pregnancy and breast feeding.

"Laser hair removal at Hela was life changing. Now I rarely need to shave and if I do it's only a few random thin sparse hairs twice a year. A total time and money saver! And the best part is I now feel confident in every situation!" - S.K.
