Pixel Laser Procedure
Laser Hair Removal - Messy, painful ineffective methods of hair removal are a thing of the past! A clinical breakthrough in hair removal precisely heats its target with little or no discomfort by using the laser in motion. This new and very effective process offers virtually painless hair removal anywhere on the body.
During a laser hair removal treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for re-growth. This process ensures damage to these cells and not to the rest of the skin.
The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the hair follicle, which contains a dense, melanin-rich hair shaft and bulb.
The dark-colored melanin absorbs the light and rises slowly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside the follicle area.
Key advantages for patients: Comfortable treatment with little to no irritation, Effective permanent reduction of hair, Little to no chance of side effects, Treatment for loose facial skin.
Laser skin treatments for wrinkles, rosacea & much more
As the baby boomer generation continues to age, the popularity of aesthetic procedures that aim to turn back the clock continues to skyrocket. Brown spots, broken capillaries and other fallout from photoaging are easy targets for laser systems that use broadband light to repair these defects through a process called photorejuvenation. Additionally, facial wrinkles can now be treated non-ablatively, contributing to a more youthful appearance. Using relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light, imperfections such as erythema of rosacea, superficial telangiectasia, dyschromia, age spots and other discolored signs of photoaging can be gently heated and eliminated, replaced by newer, younger looking skin.
AFT also delivers Equally Distributed Fluence, which means that every pulse has uniform energy density across the entire output face. This fluence ensures repeatable results and remarkable safety.

Advanced Skin Tightening - Without damaging the skin's surface, deep heating safely and effectively heats the inner layer, dermis of the skin, inducing the formation of collagen, essential for a firm, young look. This treatment tightens, as well as tones and textures you skin without harming the surface.
Pixel - is a Laser treatment that lifts away years from your face. It can reverse the early signs of aging and help counteract years of sun damage and acne scarring. It provides noticeable results in as little as a single treatment.
All three of these laser skin resurfacing options are offered as our “featured service” which is completed in an approximate one hour, same day, session.
With its ever-growing popularity, skin tightening has quickly grown into a must-have application for our Medi Spa. The ST handpiece on the Harmony®XL is ideal for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including jowl and neck laxity, sagginess under the eyes, droopy brow lines, and nasolabial folds. Using the ST handpiece with near infrared technology, deep dermal heating results in an increase in skin firmness. A series of three to six treatments produces a tighter, fresher appearance — without pain or invasive procedures. In addition, the ST handpiece is an integral part of the popular Laser360™ treatment, which has seen success with patients and in the media.

For many years, because of the high risk/benefit ratio of laser skin resurfacing, less invasive approaches for treating photo-aging have been desirable. Now, non-ablative fractional skin rejuvenation has become very popular, as it involves little or no downtime and delivers great results for mild to moderate skin wrinkling and dyschromia. With the High Power Pixel® 2940 handpiece on the Harmony®XL, we can offer fractional skin resurfacing treatments to our clients as part of Alma's consumer-friendly Laser360 skin rejuvenation procedures. The process is so gentle that the neck, chest, hands and face can all be treated with little downtime.
Technology in use
It creates an ablative thermal channel at the pixel area — a micro-injury — without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing and the untreated area acts as a reservoir for rapid restoration. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and texture improves. This is a very safe, effective, in-demand treatment.

Medical Spa Services Overview
At Pretty Face Medi Spa we pride ourselves in offering you a natural approach to younger looking skin.
Our signature facial is completely organic and is created by a local herbalist. The skin is cleansed with goats milk, colloidal oatmeal and Norwegian Kelp. The toners are pure Canadian rose water and our towels are soaked in Eucalyptus. The massage oils are made of grape seed oil, evening primrose oil, borage seed and helichrysum rich in antioxidants and fatty acids.

Sterile disposable probes are used to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair PERMANENTLY! This process is highly technique dependent. Pretty Face Medi Spa has many Doctors clientele as well as referring physicians.
Laser is not a replacement for Electrolysis. Being able to offer both treatments and knowing when and where on the body to achieve the desired outcome is imperative. Laser is never preferred on the face unless the client is fully bearded or every follicle has an active terminal hair. Laser is best on areas where all the follicles are active, example; under arms, bikini area, legs, arms or face if fully active follicles are present. Electrolysis is 100% effective on all skin types and is still recognized as permanent hair removal.
Here our insertion is extremely accurate and the fluences are increased if the client is comfortable. With this, the correction time can be cut in half and the treatment themselves are much quicker and more thorough. Electrolysis continues to be one of the most requested services here at Pretty Face Medi Spa
Medical Microdermabrasion is offered to remove imperfections and dead dry skin without harsh chemicals. A thin layer of L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) is layered on the skin and allowed to penetrate to provide collagen growth and protect the skin from the environment.
Glycolic Acid Peels are designed to smooth and tone the ski n by rapidly exfoliating the epidermal cells. Glycolic acid increases collagen in the skin by 200% and elasticity by 35%.
Renewal Therapy is 100% single cell algae with zinc and manganese, when combined offers weeks of hydration. This therapy is offered after Microdermabrasion or Chemical Peels to eliminate the signs of treatment and offer deep moisturizing.
