Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure able to permanently reduce unwanted hair. All areas of the body may be treated, including sensitive areas like the face, chest, and bikini line. Other areas that are commonly treated include the back, neck, legs, and underarms. The Cynosure Elite MPX used at Miramont MedSpa is both effective and safe It has also proven to be an excellent treatment for Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, a persistent inflammation caused by shaving and often referred to as “razor bumps”. Good candidates for laser hair removal include men and women who are looking to reduce unwanted hair of the face and/or body. The procedure is performed in the office and typically takes less than thirty minutes to complete depending on the area. An average of six to eight sessions may be needed. Patients are able to shave between treatments and even on the day of treatment, eliminating the inconvenience associated with growing out hair.
No anesthesia is required as patients will feel just a brief sensation with each pulse of the laser. The laser device also includes a cooling tip which continually soothes the skin and allows for a more comfortable, safer result. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after the laser hair removal process. The individual hairs will fall out within one to two weeks after treatment.

Co2 Fractional Laser
CO2 laser resurfacing is a Carbon Dioxide laser that has been used for more than 25 years in the Aesthetic Industry for treatment of skin conditions such as photodamaged and loose skin, fine and coarse wrinkles, skin lesions and uneven pigmentation and scarring. When a CO2 beam of light is selectively applied to the skin, it heats and vaporizes various layers of the skin, instantly treating damaged skin and wrinkles while smoothing out the surface of the skin. The skin remodeling occurs with new skin and collagen growth. The healing typically involves an open surface which takes weeks to heal and typically results in loss of the baseline pigmentation leading to variable lightening of the skin. CO2 laser resurfacing is considered the gold standard for treatment of advanced skin conditions.
Fractional Skin Resurfacing and its Benefits
Fractional skin resurfacing (Matrix CO2) is a Revolutionary Delivery System that provides dramatic skin improvement without surgery. Matrix combines the benefits of CO2 laser by using microlaser columns, “points of light,” to treat the epidermis and dermal layers of your skin. It treats a percentage of your overall skin to a select and accurate depth. The treatment precisely penetrates deep into the skin to remove old, damaged skin cells, and stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, and replaces the cells with fresh growing healthy skin. It has FDA clearance for treatment of the following conditions:
- fine wrinkles
- irregular texture
- sunspots and age spots (pigmented lesions)
- sun induced redness (vascular dyschromia)
- acne scarring
- stretch marks
Using a computerized pattern generator and a scanning algorithm, thermal heat is dispersed evenly, treating the damaged scanned area. This particular pattern dramatically reduces pain and the need for general anesthesia and recovery. Treatments can be either superficial or deep dependent upon the condition and degree of skin damage to be treated. Treatments typically lead to smoother, tighter, more even skin tone and texture, softening of lines, and some improved appearance of redness caused by sun damage. Fractional treatment with the Matrix LS-25 has been proven safe for treatment of the face, but also on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands. It may be used to treat various skin types.
Co2 Fractional Laser Before and After
Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation technique using a special surgical blade to gently scrape away the top layer of dead epidermal cells. The technique has been used for hundreds of years by Japanese men and women. The added benefit to this exfoliation treatment is that it also removes the unwanted “peach fuzz” that traps excess dirt and oil. Dermaplaning also makes fine lines less apparent.
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. We recommend this treatment to prepare the skin for medical procedures such as laser treatments or deep chemical peels. It also may be used to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels or before a cleansing facial.
Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.
Blu-U Photo-dynamic therapy for Acne
Finally! A no-hassle Acne Treatment without drugs.
Blu-U Photo-dynamic therapy is here!
Did you know that acne is common?—as many as 3 out of 4 teenagers, and some pre-menopausal women suffer from it.
Just beneath the surface of the skin are hundreds of tiny glands called sebaceous glands. These glands produce oil which normally passes through the pores of the skin to keep your skin soft and smooth.
During certain times of our lives, hormonal changes stimulate the glands to produce extra amounts of oil which can clog pores. When the pores become clogged, this excess oil gets trapped beneath the skin. The bacteria called P. acnes thrives in your clogged pores—causing irritation, redness and swelling resulting in a “pimple”. At certain times in life, this process becomes very active and hard to control.
BLU-U can quicken healing because the treatment kills the P. acnes in your skin prompting the healing of acne!
BLU-U is a safe and gentle treatment with little discomfort. It isn’t “hot” or painful at all! Since it’s not a drug, there are no drug-related side effects to worry about either. Only 2-3 treatments needed!
If you have moderate acne and are uncomfortable taking antibiotics, or are unhappy with your current oral or topical results, BLU-U may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Patients with acne scarring can also seek additional treatment using e Matrix Co2 Fractional Laser to diminish the appearance of scars.

FAQs about iBrite Teeth Whitening System
Q: Is teeth whitening really safe for salons/spas?
Yes, years of teeth whitening treatments in dental offices have proven that it is safe.
Q: What actually occurs during whitening?
During the teeth whitening process, the active ingredient in the gel (hydrogen peroxide) is broken down to water and oxygen, oxygen enters the tooth enamel. This bleaches embedded discolored substances (stains). The structure of the tooth is not changed; only the tooth enamel stain is changed and becomes a lighter and whiter shade.
Q: How long will it take before my teeth are whiter?
Whitening results often become apparent during the FIRST TREATMENT. Typically, the whitening effect becomes even more evident after a second treatment. Teeth will continue to whiten with each successive treatment until desired results are achieved.
Q: What are the results for most people?
Although results vary, people experience varied level of whitening. We have experienced up to 2-5 shades in one 15 minute MedSpa Whitening procedure.
Q: How long does the effect of teeth whitening last?
For most people, the results are LONG LASTING. Exposure to coffees, teas, tobacco, red wines and certain other stain producing substances will eventually darken teeth again over time. Maintenance kits for home are recommended and provided to stop the teeth from staining.
Q: Do people need touch ups?
After initial treatment, some people do touch-ups every 3-6 months based on the amount of stain producing substances to which they are exposed. The iBriteTM Laser tooth whitening system is a professional whitening system using LASER LIGHT and not a “supermarket” tooth whitening kit. It is 15 times stronger and more effective.
