Laser hair removal quickly and easily eliminates unwanted hair from all parts of the body, leaving the skin velvety smooth.It is a safe and effective alternative to shaving, waxing, plucking and electrolysis treatments and offers successful long-term results.

During laser hair removal rays of light energy are directed to hair follicles.The energy targets pigment in the follicle, causing it to lose its ability to grow new hair.It is effective on even the deepest follicles on any part of the body.Areas commonly treated are underarms, face, bikini area, as well as larger areas such as legs and backs.

Since only follicles in the active growth phase are targeted most patients require a series of treatments.Depending on the area being treated, we recommend between four and six sessions one to two months apart for optimal results.

Dermetics uses the Lightsheer Laser System ® - the gold standard in laser hair removal.Its patented Cooltip® technology makes treatments safe and comfortable by cooling the area as the laser touches the skin.All laser treatments are supervised by our physicians to ensure optimal safety and results.

When considering laser treatments it is important to choose your treatment provider carefully.In the wrong hands laser treatments can result in burns, blisters and permanent scarring and pigmentation.Laser resurfacing is an art form which, when performed by a skilled physician, can provide outstanding results.


IPL | services

Skin is cleansed and pre-treated with a cool gel.Light energy is delivered to the skin through a hand piece in a series of brief pulses targeting areas of visible pigmentation or blood vessels. The treatment causes a brief snapping sensation and temporary stinging which are relieved by cool compresses.Most patients are able to tolerate treatments well and report only mild discomfort.


Dermal Fillers | services

Dermal fillers are injectable gels made from hyaluronic acid, a substance made from sugar molecules and found naturally in our bodies.At Dermetics we use Juvederm® and Restylane®, leading brands of hyaluronic acid fillers that have longstanding track records for safety and for the natural look they provide when expertly injected.


Microdermabrasion | services

Microdermabrasion is often combined with chemical facial peels.These treatments both help to open clogged pores, one of the first steps in acne formation.Both treatments promote the production of new skin cells and improve the function and appearance of the skin.


Botox® Cosmetic | services

As we age fine lines and wrinkles can give us the appearance of looking tired or angry and make us look older than we feel. Areas commonly treated are forehead lines, frown lines between the eyes and crow’s feet on the outside corners of the eyes. Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein which is used to relax muscles that cause wrinkles and expression lines. Botox®Cosmetic can eliminate these lines and provide patients with a more youthful.
