Reverse the signs of aging

View before & after photos

Skin rejuvenation is a series of laser light treatments that improve the appearance of Rosacea, flushing, sun damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, and photo aging. The treatment also improves mild acne scars, reduces large pores, corrects dark circles around the eyes, and reduces fine lines.

An intense light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment areas. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally diluted vessels or pigmentation.

Treatment can be given as frequently as every three weeks and you can resume your normal activities immediately.

Many people start to notice signs of aging when skin around the face and neck begins to sag. The natural aging process, along with sun and environmental damage, causes collagen fibers to stretch and loosen like worn rubber bands, resulting in less elastic skin that, over time, eventually droops or sags.

Laser Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source (a laser) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin's surface, which then causes the skin to contract (tighten). The laser targets and heats collagen in the upper dermis while protecting the epidermis with controlled cooling.

Laser Skin Tightening has been proven effective for tightening the skin on all areas of the body. Patients can enjoy a rejuvenated look when this treatment is applied to the face, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks.

Accent is a non-invasive, non-ablative, radiofrequency technology for cellulite reduction. Accent is the only system on the market that provides two types of radio frequency technology together.

It works by using a unique dual radio frequency technology to target two distinct depths of tissue. One handpiece, the BiPolar RF, penetrates between 2mm and 6mm into the tissue. The UniPolar RF handpiece penetrates up to 20mm into the tissue. The two handpieces gently heat the different tissue depths to improve local circulation and promote the breakdown of fat deposits and adipose tissue.

Accent treatments can create dramatic change without the need for invasive surgery or even topical anesthetics.

No one is immune from the normal aging process. La Bella Donna can help turn back the clock with Botox Cosmetic treatments. You can enjoy lasting results that restore your youthful appearance.

Botox Cosmetic is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. For nearly two decades, ophthalmologists have administered Botox Cosmetic for the treatment of blepharospasm, or abnormal blinking spasms.

Botox Cosmetic reverses the signs of aging by simply relaxing the muscles in the face. As a result, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled.

The effects of Botox Cosmetic usually last three to four months and then fade away gradually.

Replenish lost collagen and smooth wrinkles

Collagen, the most abundant natural protein found in the body, provides structural support to your skin and helps keep it looking smooth and supple. However, with time, sunlight, and other factors, the collagen in your skin diminishes, your skin loses structure, and unwelcome lines and wrinkles appear.

Treatment usually takes about 30 minutes, with no down time, and you get immediate, natural looking results that can last up to six months.

after photos Juvéderm is a smooth gel filler that is eased under your skin to instantly smooth out facial wrinkles or folds.

Juvéderm uses hyaluronic acid, which is a natural complex sugar found in all living cells and one of the major parts of your skin's connective tissue, along with collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid retains water which helps to hydrate your skin and increase its volume and density. Results last for up to six months or longer.

Juvéderm is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results.

Remove unwanted facial or body hair

View before & after photos

Hair removal has grown in popularity over the past several years and photoepilation, or "hair removal with light," has made it a much easier process. There are many ways to eliminate unwanted hair, including tweezing and waxing, but very few can eliminate hair growth while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

La Bella Donna can treat virtually any part of the body, including, but not limited to, the underarms, bikini line, chest, back, upper lip, and eyebrows. During treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. The heat from the light destroys the cells in the hair follicle that are responsible for regrowth.

It is a safe and effective treatment. The right combination of wavelength, power, and light pulse is chosen to ensure that the follicle cells are eliminated without damaging the surrounding skin.

Reduce skin spots and wrinkles

Over time, lifestyle factors such as smoking and poor nutrition, excessive sun exposure, and the normal aging wreak havoc on our skin. Laser skin resurfacing is a rejuvenating cosmetic procedure that can help erase the harmful effects of the sun, aging, acne, and other problems.

Resurfacing removes the damaged outer layer of skin and stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells. Using a precise and controlled beam of light, outer layers of the skin are vaporized, revealing the smooth, unblemished skin beneath.

The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and eyes. It's also effective in treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation or discoloration. It usually results in smoother, younger, and healthier looking skin.

Eliminate broken vessles

The removal of unsightly spider veins on the legs or face is one of the most requested procedures. Although they can appear anywhere on the body, spider (telangiectatic) or varicose veins, are most commonly found on the legs as seen in the photo above. The swollen veins are caused by a weakening in the vein's wall.

They usually pose no health hazard, but varicose veins may be associated with several serious conditions including thrombosis or a clot in the vein.

At La Bella Donna, these diluted blood vessels can be selectively heated and collapsed without damaging the surrounding, healthy tissue.

Nearly all people have a pigmented lesion of some sort in the form of freckles or age spots. These unsightly blemishes can appear on the face and on the back of the hands, as seen in the photo above. As adults age, they may also lose the smooth, contoured hands of their youth. Of course, age isn't the only culprit. These discolorations can be hereditary or can also be caused by sun exposure.

La Bella Donna can help restore your skin simply with a beam of laser light, safely, effectively, and with excellent results. The treated areas are exposed to short pulses of visible light which destroy the melanin that causes the age spots. The body then replaces those cells with new cells. La Bella Donna uses a laser with capabilities to treat these pigmented lesions on any skin type.
