Cynosure with TKS™
Light the way to smooth skin. A recent advance in medical laser technology gives a gentler, safer and faster solution to the problem of unwanted hair. Cynosure lasers with TKS™ have helped thousands of men and women around the world. In as little as three to four treatments our laser removes unwanted hair from the legs, arms, back, shoulders and even from underarms, the upper lip and the bikini area.
How does Laser Hair Reduction Work?
The laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. Upon absorption, the laser energy is transformed into heat which disables the follicle.This scientific principle called Thermokinetic Selectivity (TKS™).
Why is TKS™ important?
TKS™ makes it possible for laser energy to “select” hair follicles while sparing surrounding skin from damage. This brings cosmetic results you want with clinical results you need.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for laser hair removal?
If you are concerned about unwanted hair, you are probably a good candidate for laser hair removal. The most dramatic results occur for patients with either light skin or dark hair. Other factors can influence the treatment process. Schedule an initial consultation to be evaluated.
Is the treatment painful?
Most patients describe the treatment as a series of slight pin pricks to the skin. The majority of patients tolerate this sensation without requiring anesthetics. Within about 30 minutes, the treated areas may become pink or red. This may last from a few hours to one day.
How many treatments are required?
Repeat sessions are required. Hair grows in cycles. The laser only affects hair when it is in its early-growth phase. The laser will disable follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment. At any time, some hair follicles are dormant. Repeat sessions will treat these follicles when they re-enter the growth phase.

Non-Surgical Laser Treatments
Face 2 Face offers non-surgical laser treatments for a variety of objectives including the reduction of facial veins, rosacea and spider veins, eliminating unwanted blemishes, sun spots, acne scars and facial veins while promoting healthier skin.
No needles, No incisions and No inconvenience
Two or three sessions are usually all that is needed to leave your skin feeling smooth and blemish free.
Thread veins are extremely common, mostly affecting the face, body and legs. Spider veins (or telangiectasia) are red, bluish or purple veins that can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraceptives, hormone therapy, aging, or heredity.
The Solution for Facial and Spider Veins
How does the laser help?
The laser passes through the skin and targets the hemoglobin in the vein. It “selectively” coagulates the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. The vein then collapses, is absorbed by the body and disappears. Results are seen within three to four weeks.
How many treatments are required?
Results are seen within three to four weeks. Typically 1-2 treatments are recommended.
Can we be sure that this will work on my veins?
This is something that must be determined with each patient individually but the majority of patients will benefit from this treatment.
Is this treatment difficult?
No. This is non-invasive treatment process that takes between 10-20 minutes depending on your situation. After treatment there is no downtime. You can resume all of your normal activities immediately afterward.
Is this painful?
There is some minor discomfort associated with the laser treatment. Most patients describe the sensation as a series of rubber band snaps to the skin. We often reduce or eliminate this by cooling the treated area with an air-cooling device.
What other conditions does the laser treat?
In addition to facial and leg spider veins, the laser can provide non-invasive skin treatments for healthier looking skin. It is also used to remove unwanted hair.
