Darla Johnson is a hair-removal expert. Since she began smoothing skin with laser technology in 1998, she has performed more than 6,000 treatments. And that number is only going up?the certified laser technician and award-winning entrepreneur continues to share her expertise at SLIC. Using Cynosure?s Elite Aesthetic Workstation, Darla targets and destroys follicles with gentle pulses of laser light, a process that greatly reduces future hair growth. The system has proven successful on all areas of the body, skin types, and kinds of hair, including the fake mustaches retired private eyes refuse to take off.
Though laser hair removal is the specialty at SLIC, it's not the only skincare service available from Darla's team. Her colleague Carolyn Mitchell specializes in cosmetic services, helping erase patients' fine lines and wrinkles with precise injections, exfoliating microdermabrasions, and complexion-reviving peels.
Gentle Touch specializes in nonsurgical and laser skin treatments, employing modern technology to banish signs of wear from sun-kissed facescapes. A trained epidermis expert conducts a skin analysis to identify damage on faces and necks caused by age, UV rays, and pet stingrays. The IPL photo rejuvenation facial then works to undo the damage with pulses of highly concentrated laser beams that safely penetrate skin to address damaged areas at their subcutaneous roots. The treatment can smooth skin, even colour, and stimulate new collagen growth to combat fine lines and wrinkles. Results can appear after one treatment, but technicians may recommend additional treatments for large or especially dark areas or to improve the look of bruised fruit. Patients may experience minimal discomfort in the form of a light snapping sensation.
