As our largest organ, the skin works overtime to protect us from pathogens, regulate our temperature and shield us from injury. It is also our first point of contact with the world, so it only makes sense that we take the time to properly care for our complexions with deep-acting cosmetic treatments that restore a youthful, revitalized glow. Laser treatments are legendary for improving the skin’s texture and tone, and reversing some of the flaws that come with advancing years as well as exposure to the environment and the sun’s damage.
Lasers can remove the outermost layer of compromised skin, eradicating debris, blemishes, dirt, makeup and oil. What’s more, laser treatment can stimulate the regrowth of collagen, that all-important protein in the skin that is responsible for hydration, resilience and radiance. Laser skin resurfacing is appropriate for the face, chest, neck, hands and décolleté.
With the knowledge of our team, the passion we have for our patients and the drive we have for quality results; we will help your skin stand the test of time and feel better than it ever has at any age.

What are some of the major advantages of laser skin resurfacing?
The effects of aging affect your facial skin, eventually leading to lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, and loss of volume. Forever Young BBL is a revolutionary new method of laser skin resurfacing which uses pulsed laser broadband Light (BBL) to treat skin damage and reveal beautifully smooth, even skin. Forever Young BBL works by first removing the outermost layers of the skin while stimulating cell turnover and your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. Regular treatment with Forever Young BBL will keep your skin looking refreshed, supple, and healthy.
Acne is a skin condition which can plague you at any phase of life. Many treatments for acne treat the symptoms, rather than going to the root of the issue. The Forever Clear laser delivers broadband light energy deep into the layers of your skin, treating acne where it starts. Using three powerful BBL lights – red, yellow, and blue – Forever Clear targets the bacteria in your pores which cause acne, reduces redness and inflammation, and deeply stimulates healing of your skin to produce skin which is clear, smooth, and healthy with no downtime and quick results.
Unwanted facial or body hair can affect your confidence and self-esteem. Forever Bare can help you achieve smooth, hairless skin for years to come without the need for razors, chemicals, or waxes. Forever Bare is a non-invasive method of laser hair removal with no downtime needed. Flashes of broadband light energy (BBL) penetrate deep into your hair follicles, damaging them and rendering them unable to produce hair – and the treatment is pain-free. Forever Young can be used to remove hair from many areas of the body including the legs, arms, back, chest, underarms, bikini line, or face.
The visible signs of aging include loose, sagging skin. SkinTyte is a non-invasive method of skin tightening which involves no downtime or recovery. The SkinTyte laser uses infrared technology to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, triggering a natural increase in the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. These building blocks of the skin form the threads in the fabric which keeps skin looking young, fresh, and supple. Once stimulated, the SkinTyte laser has a tightening effect on the collagen fibers, firming your skin and reducing areas of skin laxity for a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
The effects of aging, sun damage, and scars can affect more than just your skin – they affect how you feel about yourself. The good news is that modern aesthetic technology makes it possible to restore your skin. Halo is a method of laser skin rejuvenation employing a dual wavelength process to fight issues of pigmentation and skin texture both on the surface of the skin and in the deeper layers. The Halo laser’s powerful rays not only remove the external skin damage, but works deeper, leaving you with a refreshed, glowing complexion.

If you are in the Portland, OR, Vancouver, WA or surrounding areas and are frustrated with your complexion every time you look in the mirror, it may be time to consider a cosmetic intervention with laser skin resurfacing. The best way to determine your candidacy for the procedure is to meet with one of our master aestheticians in the privacy and comfort of our Vancouver, WA offices and discuss the process in depth. During this initial session, your aesthetician will examine your skin, review your medical records, and formulate a plan of action for resolving your most troublesome skin imperfections. We will also take the time to answer all your questions in detail, on the topics of insurance, costs and financing; risks and benefits; recovery and downtime; and what your final outcome might look like.
