Since opening its first center in 1999, Laser Skin & Wellness has expanded to two locations, both of which provide medical aesthetic treatments overseen by Medical Director, Gloria Hakkarainen, M.D. And to ensure each patient receives the best treatment for their concerns, a personalized consultation is performed before technicians craft a customized treatment plan, which can include medical weight loss programs, laser tattoo removal, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup treatments. Laser technicians gently remove unwanted hair with a Cutera CoolGlide laser, which keeps the skin comfortable with a built-in cooling device, or a Cutera ProWave 770 system that can banish strands on all skin types including invisible. During acne treatments, a Clear Light system releases blue-violet rays across the skin, killing bacteria deep in the pores. To further beautify complexions, Laser Skin & Wellness’ staff also employs Obagi, SkinMedica, EltaMD, and Jan Marini products.

Though rich, vibrant colors flow along the walls and contribute to the overall impression of a tranquil spa, the doctors have taken care to stock their center with advanced chiropractic instruments that promise relief from chronic aches, sports injuries, and anxiety about botching upcoming jewel heists.
