Laser technology is becoming increasingly popular.
Whether it means throwing out your razor for the rest of your life, never feeling self-conscious about your complexion again or putting away your cigarette packs to end a bad habit– this cutting edge technology has a lot of benefits.
Jennifer Bonadonna has worked as a Skin Spa Nurse Laser Specialist at the Institute of Cosmetic and Laser Surgery for quite some time. Bonadonna never thought light could be so powerful, “I had no clue what the potential was for this kind of thing.”
Bonadonna explains that laser technology works for most candidates who want to do hair removal, as long as the laser can pick up pigment, hair follicles can be zapped away.
Katharine Gucciardi, Owner and CEO of Qi Tranquility Spa, ensures that the laser used at her spa for skin treatment and hair removal is safe for patients. Gucciardi explains, “I’m a cancer survivor and the reason I did so much research with the laser systems out there in the market was I wanted the safest system out there and the one that actually works.”
Laser technology can be quite costly for those interested. Gucciardi says that the service price is based off of the expensive equipment, “Well the system we have is the Palomar Starlux 500 System. They are the grandfather of all laser worldwide. This system costs the mortgage of a home.”
Deb Taylor, is the owner of London Laser and Hypnotherapy Centre, and she uses laser technology to help smokers quit their bad habit. Taylor says laser technology helps smokers by, “stimulating acupuncture points to help balance some of the neurotransmitters in the brain” to ensure that people do not have a physical withdraw from the drug.
After following patients a few years post treatment, Taylor and her team at London Laser found that 47% of patients who received the treatment were still non-smokers.
