LASERS AND LIGHT TREATMENTS

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) skin Care Treatments

Intense pulse light (IPL) treatments are a popular choice for skin rejuvenation and enhancing skin tone.  IPL is particularly effective for treating dilated capillaries, brown spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, spider veins, birthmarks, sun spots, and acne scars.  Treatments are typically conducted in a series at three-week intervals and the skin begins to take on a more youthful and clear appearance after the first
few sessions.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal treatments are a safe, fast, gentle, and effective option for men and women of all ages who struggle with unwanted hair.  The advanced technology of laser hair removal transcends older, temporary solutions such as tweezing, shaving, waxing or bleaching.  Laser hair removal uses laser energy to gently, yet permanently, reduce unwanted hair.  Results will vary depending on skin and hair color as well as other individual factors.

 


PEELS


Chemical Peels

GTOC offers several types of chemical peels for the face, eyes, lips, neck, décolleté, and hands.  Peels can be beneficial in helping with aging (brown spots, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation), rosacea (redness and visible capillaries), excessive oiliness, pore size, and acne.

Micropeel

A micropeel combines the manual exfoliating benefits of microdermabrasion with the lightening, brightening, and pore-minimizing benefits of a glycolic peel for the ultimate “after glow.”

 


INJECTABLES


BOTOX® / Dysport® / Xeomin®

Neuromodulators are the #1 non-surgical cosmetic treatment performed in the United States.  Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® work to relax muscle movement to temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, skin bands on the neck, and lip lines.  The results last approximately 3-4 months.

Dermal Fillers - (Restylane®, Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Belotero®, Voluma®)

Fillers are injectable treatments used to restore volume loss as a result of the aging process.  They are a great alternative to surgery and can add fullness to the face, plump lips, enhance shallow contours, and soften facial creases and wrinkles.  Fillers are not permanent, but can last from 6 months to 2 years depending on the treatment.

 


WAXING / TINTING


Waxing

Professionally shaped brows will help accentuate your eyes and frame your face.  Facial hair waxing, while not permanent, provides longer lasting results than shaving and tweezing.

Tinting (brow or lash)

Tinting is a great option for those with a sensitivity to mascara. Tinting involves the semi-permanent coloring of eyelashes or brows. Touch-ups are generally done every two to four weeks.

 


DERMAPLANING / MICRONEEDLING


Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a noninvasive skin exfoliation treatment. The benefit of this treatment is the exfoliation of the outler layer of dead skin cells which allows increased absorption of topical products. It also removes “peach fuzz” and softens and smoothes the skin creating a healthy and more radiant appearance.

Microneedling

Microneedling is the newest and most sought after skin rejuvenating treatment with minimal to no downtime. Microneedling benefits include reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improved appearance of stretchmarks and acne scarring as well as stimulation of collegen production. Additional benefits include improved skin texture, tone, elasticity and reduced pore size.
