We now can offer a fractionated procedure with little or no downtime. We had the opportunity to use the Palomar EmergeTM Fractional Non-Ablative Laser, and we liked the results so much, we knew we had to purchase it. It's break-through technology and we are fortunate enough to be one of a just few clinics on the south shore to use it! It's a fantastic skin resurfacing tool designed to minimize wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, stretch marks, and improve the your skin's overall texture. Our clients have absolutely been delighted with this and we can't wait for you to come in!
What's so great about the EmergeTM?
Well, it's a non-ablative laser, which simply means it doesn't remove the top layers of skin. And that's key because although fractional lasers have been around for quite some time, and deliver great results, the downtime has always been a major drawback. Most women (and men!) can't afford the long recovery time often lasting a couple of weeks, and its needed because the skin is swollen, weepy, crusty and very sore. But thankfully the Emerge TM is non ablative, so there is minimal or no downtime! You'll get great results without those painful side effects. Non-ablative fractional lasers target cells deep within your skin promoting new collagen growth. Collagen is the protein responsible for our skin's elasticity and suppleness and as we age, its production naturally slows down, making way for those crow's feet, laugh lines, enlarged pores- to name a few!
How many treatments?
For best results, we recommend three treatments spaced out over 3 weeks. (If you have to do every two weeks, that's okay, too-just remember for optimal results, three is best!)
Does it hurt?
No, it doesn't hurt, but some clients may feel a slight pinch-like sensation here or there, especially around the lips and forehead. After each treatment, we'll let you use a nifty chilled roller on your face to cool it down.
How long does each procedure take?
Less than 30 minutes! Your initial treatment will take a bit longer because we'll explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have. Our treatment room is comfortable and private.
There's really little or no downtime?
Yes! Most clients experience a little redness and some minor swelling immediately following the procedure, but that subsides within a few hours.
What does it target?
Emerge is great for treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and stretch marks.

Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that relaxes the muscles under the skin. Overactive muscle contraction, combined with age-related loss of collagen under the skin, is responsible for much of the wrinkling effect seen on aging faces. By forcing the muscle to relax in a certain area, the wrinkling disappears or at least improves significantly. Botox® Cosmetic is an excellent treatment for the frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, crow's feet around the eyes, lines on the upper lip caused by pursing the lips and down turned corners of the mouth. Botox® Cosmetic can also be used to elevate the brows, resulting in a more youthful appearance. This has been referred to as a "chemical brow lift". A chemical brow lift can recreate a more arched, youthful brow, producing similar results to a traditional brow lift but without the surgery.

Fillers produce very pleasing enhancements, most commonly for your "laugh lines," "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds), or "marionette lines" (oral commissures). Fillers also are popular to restore lip volume lost over time or to enhance lips that have always been thin or asymmetric. In about 30 minutes, these fillers produce wonderful results to enhance your best features, fill lips, folds, & scars, and restore the contours of the youthful face.

Nail Fungus Removal (Onychomycosis)
Now, clients suffering from embarrassing toenail fungus have an alternative, effective treatment with little pain and no side effects. Nail fungus, known medically as onychomycosis, is a common condition causing the toenails to become discolored, thickened and separated from the nail bed. It can also cause pain when wearing shoes or walking. Approximately half of the population will have at least one infected toenail during the course of their lives. Current treatment options for nail infection include oral drugs, prescription topical drugs and laser. No single treatment is effective in all clients and there are risks and benefits associated with each one. Be sure to discuss all your treatment options with your doctor. Laser treatments are effective in eliminating nail infections and restoring clear nails. Most clients experience at least some improvement. During treatment most clients experience warm feeling in their toes. Using laser to treat nail fungus is an FDA-cleared treatment, and a clinical study reported no adverse effects related to the laser.
How does laser treatment work?
Laser treatment targets the fungus directly and gets to the source of the problem immediately. Tiny pulses of light from the laser passes through the toenail to the fungus unde4rneath. The fungus is irradiated without any damage to the surrounding nail or skin.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on how many toes are affected, the laser procedure will take 10 to 20 minutes.
Is laser treatment 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 are needed before results are seen?
Consult your provider. Many patients only need one treatment, but some need more if they have severe cases of toenail fungus. You won't notice anything immediately following treatment. However, as your nail grows out, the new nail growth should be clear. Toenails grow slowly especially nails infected with fungus. So, it may take 6 to 12 months for your toenail to clear.
Are there any restrictions on activity post procedure?
Normal activities can resume immediately after the procedure.
Will the fungus come back?
Reinfection with toenail fungus may be acquired anywhere from your environment, for example, damp areas such as public swimming pools. Consult with your healthcare professional to understand how to prevent toenail fungus from reoccurring.
When can nail polish be applied?
While it is important to remove nail polish, decoration and jewelry prior to treatment, you can reapply nail polish 24 hours after treatment.
