The 5D Laser Facial is a non-invasive cutting edge laser treatment that leverages dual-wavelength technology to stimulate collagen regeneration and rejuvenate skin.

The Difference

Unlike conventional lasers that offer a one-size-fits-all approach, our 5D Collagen Laser harnesses the power of dual-wavelength technology (755nm Alexandrite /1064nm Nd-Yag) to deliver results on multiple layers of the skin, targeting different concerns at the same time. A series of 3 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart is suggested for optimal results. This treatment course can be repeated once a year.

What to Expect

A combination of generalized heat and/or the sensation of an elastic band snapping against the skin.
Mild to medium erythema for up to 3 hrs post treatment.
Areas of pigmentation might appear darker for up to 10-15 days before they start to fade.
Areas of telangiectasia may get slightly swollen or rosy for up to 24 hours before they start to fade.
Sunscreen use is strongly suggested.


Tightening & Firming
Ultra-long pulse width technology promotes targeted and controlled fat reduction, tightens the SMAS fascia layer, and effectively removes deep fat, for a soft facial contour.

Wrinkle Smoothing
The 1064nm long-pulsed laser will heat up fibroblasts enough to activate collagen production upon every appointment, making it the most effective, natural and minimally invasive way to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles over time.

Pigmentation Reduction
The 755nm wavelength laser effectively removes pigmentation, brightening the skin and rejuvenating your appearance.

Rosacea & Broken Capillaries Control
The 1064nm laser targetes redness, telangiectasia and erythema on the skin to effectively eliminate sensitivity and reduce the appearance of broken capillaries.

Texture Improvement
The 1064nm wavelength laser targets aging concerns in the superficial and epidermal layers, resulting in improved skin texture & smoother skin, and inflammation control, while boosting collagen production.


30 mins / $195 per session or $525 for 3 sessions

This treatment features a high powered Nd:YAG laser, to safely penetrate the skin to an optimal treatment depth and to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands. Ideal for anyone suffering from persistent inflammation or acne.

What Is It

The Acne Laser Facial is a virtually painless treatment with no down-time, that selectively targets overactive sebaceous glands to help manage oil production and subsequently reduce inflammation on the skin. A series of 3 sessions, spaced 2 weeks apart is suggested for optimal results. It can be repeated as often as needed.

What to Expect

A generalized heat all over the face during the treatment. Mild erythema for up to 2 hours post treatment. Results may vary depending on the case and the extent of the inflammation and may take up to 3 weeks to see the full effects on the skin. Sunscreen use is strongly suggested.


Active Acne
Reduce inflammation and size/number of breakouts.

Post - Acne Hyperpigmentation or Erythema (PIH/PIE):
Diminish signs of hyperpigmentation on the skin caused by extensive inflammation.

Size of Pores:
Reduce the appearance of pores by effectively regulating oil production.


How do I determine which medical grade treatments are best for me?

All of our treatments include a free consultation. We suggest booking a customized facial so your skin expert can create a customized skin care plan that includes medical grade treatments and products to help you reach your skin goals.

What Is Elite iQ?

Elite iQ is a laser system that can perform many of the most-requested aesthetic treatments. Two wavelengths–a 1064 nm Nd:YAG and a 755 nm alexandrite–are employed separately or at the same appointment to achieve your goals.

The Elite iQ platform is equipped with SkinTel smart melanin reader technology, the first and only FDA-cleared melanin reader. The SkinTel device assesses your levels of melanin (the pigment that gives skin and hair its color) to determine the optimal laser parameters for you, delivering faster, more accurate results.

Elite IQ can address multiple skin concerns and conditions, as well as permanently reduce hair.

What can I expect while getting an Elite IQ laser treatment?

At your treatment session, you’ll lie down on a comfortable treatment bed and be given eye protection. Your Skin Expert will use the SkinTel melanin reader to obtain optimal settings for your treatment, then pass the Elite IQ laser handpiece over the area being treated. The sensation isn’t painful, resembling a rubber band snapping against your skin. The process can take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

How can I prepare for my laser appointment?

The treatment area should be clean shaven prior to the procedure. Avoid any harsh exfoliants, direct sun exposure - including tanning beds, any lotion or cream or make-up.

Is this treatment right for me?

The Elite iQ device can be safely used on all skin types and anywhere on the body including face, back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini area and legs. Book a consultation with a Skin Expert to decide how Elite IQ is the right treatment for you.

How soon will I see results from Laser Hair Reduction?

You can expect to see a gradual decrease in hair thickness and the amount of hair in the area treated.* Since hair removal treatments only target hair in the active phase of growth, multiple treatments are often needed for complete removal. Book a consultation with a Skin Expert to discuss areas and number of treatments required.

What is the downtime of a laser facial?

All of our laser facials are non-ablative, non-invasive treatments that have minimal to no downtime. Consult your skin expert on how to properly care for your skin before and after treatment and make sure to wear your sunscreen.
