We offer a variety of impressive laser services like IPL, laser resurfacing and laser hair removal. We have a full spectrum of lasers to address all your skin care concerns and conditions.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a state of the art system, and the latest technique in photofacials. The IPL system delivers high intensity, smooth and powerful pulses of light that targets sun spots, redness and broken capillaries. The freckles and excessive redness clears up without flaking of the skin. IPL can be performed anywhere on the body and is popular for the face, neck and chest but can be done on the arms, shoulders and back.
Laser Resurfacing can dramatically improve wrinkles, sun damage and textured spots (spots that are raised). Laser resurfacing is very customized to your desired outcome and commitment. We perform light resurfacing treatments, Laser Polish, to more aggressive resurfacing therapies, Laser Transform. This treatment uses an Erbium laser to remove unwanted skin layers to reveal newer, refreshed skin. Laser resurfacing also builds new collagen and enhances cellular skin health.
Laser Hair Removal works on removing and reducing unwanted hairs in any area of the face or body. Laser hair removal can be performed on any area with dark hair and lighter skin colors. If hairs are white or grey, laser hair removal is not effective. Laser hair removal is done in a series of treatments with no downtime. Laser hair removal also helps razor bumps and irritated hair follicles to improve.
Our providers are certified cosmetic laser operators and have passed the vigorous testing required for this qualification. They have met the laser safety training standards as recommend by the American National Standard for the safe use of Lasers in Health Care Facilities and for Laser Office Procedures as recommended by the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Our providers are highly trained in the biophysics, safety, tissue interactions for laser procedures. In addition, our providers have been safely performing IPL and laser therapies for over 15 years. Experience matters!

What to expect
Our registered nurse, Loraine Savarese, or state-licensed Medical Aesthetican, Shae Ryan, closely examines each client during an initial consultation to determine what treatments best match your desired goals. Our providers are Certified Aesthetic Laser Operators by the National Council on Laser Certification which is considered the highly level of training and expertise for laser therapies. Rest assured you are in expert hands.
The treatments may require application of a topical gel or anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Our certified laser operator providers will then use the hand-held IPL or laser device to direct the treatment in your area of concern.
IPL is a simple and fast technique with minimal discomfort used to treat freckles, photodamage, age spots, rosecea, scars and redness. Clients typically feel some warm sensations, or a very mild stinging during the treatment. Cold air is used to make the treatment comfortable. Occasionally, you may have some mild swelling after treatment. Because you are treated by an expert, you will need less treatments than providers who have less experience. Many of our guests are thrilled to see how impressive IPL results are. Without downtime and no flaking of the skin, you can obtain a significant reduction in sun spots and redness. IPL is one of the most popular treatments at Charmed Medispa because of it’s effectiveness and ease.
Laser therapies like Laser Transform and Laser Polish are used to resurface the skin to improve wrinkles, textured spots and lesions and tighten skin. The treatment is customized for each individual with no downtime to a few days of crusting and dryness. Consider that the more days of transition you have back to normal, you will have a better, more dramatic result. Pixel and Fraxel are trade names for skin resurfacing that we offer. Think of laser resurfacing as a gentle to more moderate sand papering of the skin to smooth out wrinkles, lines, stretch marks and scarring.
Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Therapies can be combined on the same day so that you can get improvement of wrinkles, brown spots, textured lesions and more. In addition, skin tightening can be done at the same time. Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Therapies can be used on the face, neck, chest, decolletage, arms, hands, and back. IPL and laser are highly satisfying with dramatic results that last.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can also be combined with a chemical peel the same day. This is a favorite combination at Charmed Medispa since you get the best of removing pigmentation, sun spots and redness and the peel benefits of refreshing the skin, improving pores and additional skin brightening.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) – Results with IPL and Laser Therapies are typically seen after one or two treatments, depending on the nature of the problem. Severe conditions may require additional treatments. You can expect dramatic improvements in our customized Intense Pulsed Light treatments.
Laser Resurfacing – Laser resurfacing like Pixel and Fraxel are highly customized treatments which can include no downtime to several days of redness, flaking and no makeup application. The results of laser resurfacing are completely based on the condition of the skin and the commitment of our guests. If they prefer light laser therapies with no downtime and almost immediate makeup application, the results are more gradual and you will need more treatments based on your desired outcome. If you would like more dramatic results with less treatments, we can perform more therapeutic laser therapies that will have a greater impact on acne scarring, deeper wrinkles and lines and even textured lesions.
Laser Hair Removal – Hair removal will require several treatments before the desired outcome is achieved. Laser hair removal typically takes 6-8 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Laser Hair Removal also helps with bumps and irritated hair follicles. Our guests love the silky, smooth skin after laser hair removal and the not having to shave.

Recovery and Maintenance
Some pinkness or redness may result in or around the treatment area. There may be some mild swelling, which will go away after a few days. Your sun spots will appear darker and magically lift to the surface of the skin and fall off in about 7-10 days. There is no flaking of the skin with IPL. It is important to protect the treated area from sunlight, tanning beds or other UV light after your treatment. If you had lots of broken capillaries on the face, neck or chest, you can experience darkening of the red vessels temporarily and then the body will absorb this and your redness improves. All in all, there is no downtime with IPL and our guests love the ease and convenience as well as the impressive results.
Treatments usually take 30-60 minutes, depending on which area is being treated.
