Tired of That Tattoo?  We can Help Remove it

There are a lot of reasons people decide that their tattoo needs to be removed.  At NuVo we use high intensity laser light beams to heat and break up the tattoo pigments into small fragments that your body can either absorb or bleed out through your skin.  As a result, the tattoo fades.   Black and blue pigments absorb more wavelengths, and are easier to treat than green and yellow pigments.  The number of sessions you’ll need varies, depending on the amount and type of ink that was used and how deeply it was injected. It generally takes about a year of treatments administered every four to eight weeks.   You’ll also receive instructions on caring for the treated area; you’ll need to treat it like a burn and avoid the sun.

Laser Treatments Clear Unsightly Fungus

Toenail fungus can cause nails to become thick, yellow and brittle – even painful.  NuVo uses a laser to target the pigment in the fungal organism.  The laser heats up the pigment in the fungus, which kills the fungus and allows your toenail to grow out normally.

An IPL Photo Facial Will Zap Those Brown Spots

Intense pulsed light, or IPL photo facials, are a proven treatment for broken capillaries (spider veins), the brown “age spots” caused by sun damage, redness, acne, light acne scars and Rosacea.  Photo facials also refine and tighten large pores, and stimulate collagen production, for plumper skin and a fresher look!   The IPL photo facial utilizes a non-invasive, high-intensity light that penetrates just below the skin’s surface; it damages the melanin that makes up brown age spots, or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries.  After a treatment, your brown spots will first be darker, and then gradually disappear.  One of NuVo professionals will consult with you regarding your aesthetic goals, and whether an IPL photo facial is a good option for you. Three to six treatments spaced a month apart are generally needed for the best results.

You should avoid direct sun exposure for a few days before a treatment, and abrasive products such as those with Retin-A, retinols, alpha hydroxys and glycolic, for up to five days after treatment, as they can increase sensitivity and the risk of side effects.
