Laser Hair removal, Cutera
Laser hair removal is among the top non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Compared to traditional methods of hair removal such as shaving, plucking, and waxing, the Cutera Coolglide laser is a proven non-invasive method for permanent laser hair reduction for unwanted body hair on almost any area of the body. The Cutera Coolglide laser is the first laser that can safely and effectively remove hair on all skin types for both men and women. The Xeo Coolglide by Cutera hand piece is designed to cool the skin by contact during the treatment to offer a pain free treatment. Because of the cooling hand piece, the laser does not damage the skins epidermis or stranding tissue. Common areas for laser hair removal are the face, underarms, arms, legs, bikini area, abdomen, back and the Décolleté (chest). However, it is possible to treat nearly any area on the body with unwanted hair. The laser hair removal treatment time will vary depending on the size of the area with unwanted hair. Smaller areas such as the upper lip can be treated in minutes where larger areas of unwanted body hair will take longer. The Cutera Coolglide laser hair removal treatment works by delivering a wave of light energy to the melanin in the hair which is then turned into heat to destroy the hair follicle disabling the structure.

Sun Damage and Brown Spots, em clinic and spa Guelph
The suns ultraviolet (UV) rays and environmental factors can be dangerous and damaging to our unprotected skin contributing to hyperpigmentation also referred to as sun damage. Over time UV rays will lead to freckles, sun spots, age spots, brown spots, fine line and wrinkles adding years of premature aging to our look. These dark spots on our skin are known as hyperpigmentation are common conditions caused by an increase in melanin in our skin from over exposure to UV rays. Our skin produces melanin to protect itself against the dangerous UV rays. Too much sun exposure can cause the melanin to clump which causes patches of darker skin or brown spots leaving us with an uneven, blotchy complexion. Sun damage may also appear and present as facial redness, rosacea, poikiloderma on the chest and neck, or as fine lines and wrinkles. Research shows that over sun exposer and not protecting our skin against UV rays is the reason behind 80% of our skin premature aging.
