ALISA for Skin Rejuvenation and Skin Tightening and Smoothing

Is your skin looking a little down these days? Want to tighten and brighten your tired skin? We recommend the ALISA photofacial treatment. ALISA is ideal for treating dull skin appearance, textural damage such as scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and large pores.

How does ALISA work?

We treat textural damage with phototherapy. Photofacials emit light energy into the skin. The light beam destroys specified targets without damaging the surrounding tissue. This process promotes the production fresh and plump new cells, increase collagen production, circulation, and cell turnover rate. This treatment can be performed on small to large areas of the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms!

Your skin will look and feel younger, brighter, tighter, and supple.

We use Sharplight’s Formax-VP System. Their DPC technology makes your treatments safe and effective in less time. Above all, you can rest assured that your treatment is performed by a qualified technician with your comfort in mind.
