Blast That Fat!

Leanne ReitsmaComment

TruSculpt is a comfortable non-surgical heat treatment that targets and kills fat cells, smooths cellulite and tightens skin.
 

What is TruSculpt?

TruSculpt is a breakthrough RF (Radio Frequency) technology that delivers deep heating of subcutaneous tissue.  It is FDA and Health Canada approved.   It is proven to kill fat cells permanently, reduce cellulite and contour the body.  The TruSculpt system is designed to treat multiple zones of the body such as thighs, buttocks, abdomen, chin, arms, chest as well as other stubborn areas.  


Can TruSculpt be used on any skin type?

Yes, TruSculpt can be used on all skin types.

 

Am I the right candidate for TruSculpt?

TruSculpt is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese.  It does not replace exercise or proper diet.


How long does a treatment take?

Typically a treatment takes an hour.

 

 How many treatments will there be?

Typically a patient will receive 2 treatments. Each treatment will be 4-8 weeks apart.

 

What do I need to do before a treatment?

There is no special preparations needed before a treatment.

 

What happens during treatment?

We will identify with you the specific areas of your body you want to be treated. After a brief pre-treatment preparation, the TruSculpt hand piece will be applied to your skin which will deliver a pulse of RF energy. Each pulse will last average 4 minutes; upon completion, the hand piece will be moved to an adjacent area to begin the next pulse.

 

What does it feel like?

TruSculpt is designed to be a comfortable procedure.  Due to its unique design, the heating of the area will be tolerable. I will adjust the temperature depending upon your comfort level. Typically no pain medication, topical anesthetics, gels or active cooling will be needed.

 

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, the procedure is non-invasive, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after the session.

Do You Notice Those Little Purple Veins On Your Legs Or Tiny Red Veins On Your Face And Chest?

Leanne ReitsmaComment

Be Ready For The Holiday Season Vein Free!

What areas can be treated?
We can treat the tiny veins on your face called telangiectasia, the red or purple spider veins on the face or body as well, the mid-size veins. Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond well to vein therapy, usually in just one treatment. Also patients with port wine stains are overwhelmed by the success of vein therapy. However, this treatment is not used to treat bulging varicose veins. We will evaluate whether your veins are appropriate for this treatment (or another) at the time of your free consultation.
 

What does the treatment feel like?
As our laser delicately heats the vessels, patients may experience a mild to moderate stinging sensation. However, the discomfort is minimized by constant cooling of the skins surface. No pain medication is required and following the treatment the pain is minimal to non-existent.

 

How does it work?
Our medical grade laser system delivers pulses of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later absorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skins surface, where it should be.

 

How many treatments will you need?
The number depends on the quantity, color and size of the vessels being treated, but typically 1 to 3 treatments are sufficient.

 

How long does the treatment take?
The length of time depends on the size of the treatment area but each treatment typically takes 5 - 15 minutes per area. 

 

How much does it cost?
This depends on the extent of what you would like to have treated. If you’d like to make an appointment for a consultation, we can give you a specific idea as to the number of treatments and the price. Payment options and gift certificates are available and the consultation is always free.

 

What are the side effects?
Most patients report few if any side effects. Those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and slight swelling. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours.
Are there any restrictions on my activity after the treatment?
You may return to normal activities immediately afterwards. However, we recommend that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after a treatment.

 

What can you expect?
Small vessels usually disappear immediately. Larger vessels, especially those on the legs, often look worse before they look better but will clear up over a matter of a few days to a few weeks. If you are having leg vein therapy we advise you wear support hose for a short period of time.

 

Can anyone have it done?
Yes. Adults of all ages and most skin tones can benefit from vein therapy and can have it done year round. We can even treat tanned skin.

Want Everyone to Notice How Great You Look?

Leanne ReitsmaComment

Do you want everyone to notice how great you look? 

Get that extra special glow in time for a special event.  Treat yourself or someone you love to a comfortable, warm and relaxing procedure called Laser Genesis.

 

Laser Genesis – Skin Rejuvenation

What does it do?

It is an innovated, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women.   The non-invasive laser procedure safely, discretely and effectively treats fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars.  You can expect to see subtle results after just one treatment without unwanted side effects.

 

What areas can be treated?

Patients report excellent results over their entire face, neck and in the reduce appearance of their scars. Scars may be located anywhere on the body.

 

What does the treatment feel like?

Patients describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic.  You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface as the laser headpiece is moved back and forth above you skin.  Laser Genesis is very comfortable; it’s sometimes called the warm laser facial.

 

How does it work?

We use a medical grade laser to gently heat the skin below the surface.  This “healthy heat” stimulates the body’s own natural healing response, and the texture of your skin literally becomes smoother.  Depending on what you are having treated, pores get smaller, lines are decreased as your underlying collagen is refreshed, and color of your skin will even out while redness is diffused.

 

What is diffuse redness?

Diffuse redness is the appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks.  This condition is caused by dilated capillaries.  The most common areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks.  Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea.  Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently generating heat in the dilated capillaries resulting in reduced redness.

 

How many treatments will you need?

People and conditions will vary in the way they respond, based on their skin biology.  Typically we recommend a series of 4 to 6 treatments to optimize the results.

 

How long does the treatment take?

Each treatment session takes about 30 minutes.

 

How much does it cost?

If you’d like to make an appointment for a consultation, we can give you a specific idea as to the number of treatments and the price.  Payment options and gift certificates are available and the consultation is free.

 

What are the side effects? 

Most patients report few if any side effects and return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.  You may be flushed from the heat but that will disappear within a few hours of the treatment.

 

What can you expect?

Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars.  You will see a creamier, healthy complexion as large pores reduce in size, and minor imperfections are diminished.  The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.

 

Can anyone have it done?

Yes.  Adults of all ages and all skin types can benefit from Laser Genesis and can have it done year round.  We can even treat tanned skin.

 

Laser Genesis does something completely unique in the skin rejuvenation area.  Come in a see me about the only laser procedure scientifically proven to produce new collagen.

Summer's Coming...Are you ready?

Leanne ReitsmaComment

You realize you never have to shave or wax again!

Not all Laser Hair Removal Treatment is equal - Numerous places are offering laser hair removal services and prices will vary as you are browsing about.  Buyer Beware, not all treatments are equal.

IPL laser is offered in many establishments in which the laser pulse is projected much like the scattering beam of a flashlight, it reached 1.7mm deep (most hair follicles rest between 2-4mm).   Failing to reach the depth of the follicle with the laser can result in hair regrowth after the completion of treatment.  The scattering of the beam heats the surrounding tissue resulting in increased pain with treatment.

 Precision Laser & Vein Clinic offers affordable Laser Hair Removal with a Medical Grade Cutera laser reaching 4mm depth and a straight collimated beam that reduces the amount of heat the surrounding tissue receives as well, the laser’s Coolglide patented tip allows for painless hair removal "The CoolGlide is the first laser cleared for permanent hair reduction in all skin types and is endorsed by physicians worldwide" We provide treatment that can be effective, affordable and painless.  Contact our clinic today for more information or a free consultation on Laser Hair Removal for both men and women.  Get ready for the Summer!

Harsh Weather Warning in Effect!!!!!

Leanne ReitsmaComment

Brrrrr....that cold is harsh on the face! Broken Facial Capillaries and Rosacea can result from extreme weather conditions. Laser Treatment is perfect for eradicating these conditions. Small damaged blood vessels on the face (Telangiectasia) are easily caused from sun, wind and cold, as well as other causative factors. Make sure to bundle up and cover exposed skin and wear a daily SPF. If you have either of these conditions or any veins on your legs you would like us to assess, please come in for a complementary assessment and consultation! Keep Warm!

Ever thought of Laser Hair Removal???

Leanne ReitsmaComment

Ever thought of laser hair removal??? Not all systems are created equal. Ensure you are getting treatment with a Medical Grade laser for best results. IPL lasers are used by many salons they have a scattered beam, they go 1.7mm deep into the tissue. Typically, many hair follicles rest deeper than 1.7mm, medical grade lasers have a very targeted beam and reach 4mm into the tissue. As medical grade lasers are more targeted, they heat less of the surrounding tissue compared to IPL treatment. This results in less pain and discomfort if any at all during hair removal treatment. Book your free no obligation consultation! We'd be happy to provide you with information on the treatment to see if it's right for you! We offer Hair Removal on all body parts for both men and women.
