For other skin and vein applications, we have the finest laser equipment from Iridex Corp., a leader in aesthetic laser technology. The GeminiTM laser console contains two lasers: a long-pulse Nd:YAG laser, and a 532nm KTP green light laser. These two lasers, used either alone or in combination, achieve excellent results for a wide variety of cosmetic and hair removal applications. The GeminiTM is FDA-cleared for 21 different clinical applications. Most treatments can be done on all skin types, light or dark.
The Nd:YAG laser is an excellent laser for hair reduction in all skin types, as well as treatment of spider veins, and for wrinkle-reduction by collagen stimulation.
The KTP “Green Light” Laser has been recognized as the “gold standard” for many cosmetic and other medical applications. Urologists are using the KTP laser to safely treat prostate problems in the outpatient setting. In the cosmetic area, the KTP laser has been shown to be superior to IPL (“intense pulsed light”) and pulsed-dye lasers for the treatment of rosacea, vascular, and pigmented lesions.
Reviews of the KTP Laser:
"For subsequent photorejuvenation (pigment and vascularity) treatments 14 out of 16 patients chose the 10 mm KTP (over IPL) due to increased efficacy, speed and reduced pain during treatment." 1
"On average, the KTP achieved 62% clearing after the first treatment and 85% at three weeks following the third (treatment), as compared to 49% and 75% for PDL (pulsed-dye laser), respectively."2

SmartlipoTM laser is the gold standard in laser lipolysis. The new Smartlipo TriplexTM uses a special triple-wavelength high power Nd:YAG laser that passes through a tiny fiber to vaporize the fat cells. The fiber is threaded through a small needle no wider than an injection needle. The laser energy not only kills the fat cells, but also cauterizes blood vessels and tightens the skin above. Please refer to our liposculpture page for more information.
