Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal treatments provide effective results without impacting the appearance of the patient’s skin. The treatments use the latest technology available, offering outstanding results and the ability to treat the widest range of skin tones and hair colours.
Pain-Free, Hair Free treatments with Soprano XL laser systems break the mould of previous laser hair removal systems as a pain-free alternative. Using unique IN-Motion technology, the system guides the laser in a sweeping motion, gradually heating the targeted area under the skin resulting in a gentle, pain-free, and safe hair removal procedure.
While pain tolerance is different for everyone, most patients describe the sensation as a soothing “hot stone massage.” During your consultation our highly trained laser technicians will be glad to perform a patch test for your peace of mind and convenience.
The Pain-Free, Hair-Free treatment is painless and requires little to no recovery time. The area exposed to the laser will be treated upon completion of the procedure.
The cost varies based on the time it takes to treat the target area and the type of procedure performed. Please feel free to contact us in order to request a quote and/or schedule a consultation.
The laser emits pulses of infrared diode laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the sub-dermal layer of the skin, which disables multiple follicles at a time to eliminate hair regrowth.
Mint laser clinic operates using only laser hair removal systems approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal & reduction. Most patients achieve long-term results however, the amount of permanent reduction increases with additional treatments. Hair regrowth is infrequent and sparse.
The duration of the procedures varies based on the size of the target area. Common procedures, such as those for underarm hair removal, may take up to 15 minutes.
Laser hair removal is the most researched application of laser technology in aesthetic medicine. Soprano XL system was approved by the FDA in 2005 and has provided safe, permanent hair reduction treatment for thousands of patients worldwide.

Teosyal

Teosyal provides long-term results. Effects generally last for about twelve months. Teosyal disappears so slowly that you have ample time to maintain your appearance with follow-up treatments. Long-lasting effects are not permanent, therefore you have the flexibility to keep the same look, or make adjustments over time.
Teosyal is injected into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultrafine needle. To optimize your comfort level during the short procedure, Dr. Wang can freeze the treatment area prior to injecting.
No, although Teosyal is sometimes used in conjunction with surgery in order to fill out wrinkles that cannot be removed by surgery.
No. However, Teosyal dissolves naturally with time. If you feel uncertain about the desired result, you can choose to have the treatment done in steps on different occasions. If you feel that there is too much product in any one area, Hyaluronidase can be injected to reduce the volume of the product.
The most common side effects are inflammatory reactions such as redness which may be associated with stinging or pain on pressure at the injection site. These reactions may last for a week. Swellings or nodules may develop at the injection site.

Photo Rejuvenation

Although each individual case is different, most patients require up to 5 treatments. The number of treatments also depends on the severity of the condition treated and whether or not maintenance is required. Seasonal treatments are recommended for maintenance of results achieved and to prevent signs of aging.
Patients may experience light stinging in the target area during treatment.
The treatment takes 30-45 minutes approximately.
Self-tanning lotions/creams and tanning beds should be avoided for 3-4 weeks before treatment. Bronzing powders, moisturizers with sparkles, Emla or topical anesthetic should not be used the day of treatment.
Tanning beds and exposure to sunlight should be avoided post treatment. Mechanical exfoliants and harsh products, such as retinol creams or glycolic acid creams, should be avoided immediately after treatment. Excessive exposure to heat such as a sauna or hot tub should also be avoided immediately after treatment.
The skin may have some pink/red appearance post treatments for 24-48 hours. Sun spots or hyperpigmentation may appear to be darker. This darkness is the hyperpigmentation or sun damage surfacing. Overall the skin may look and feel tight.

CoolSculpting

Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas theyíd like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
