Gemini Laser treatment and safety

The Gemini Laser is like any other laser when used in the right manner. This laser specifically, is used to treat discoloration, both reds and pigmentation, as well as spider veins. In any case, it should first be determined if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal before you start treatment. It is best to schedule a consultation to find out where you fall on that scale. At the Victoria Park Medispa we offer complimentary consultations. As with all lasers there are side effects which include burns and pigmentation. The technology is only as good as the person administering it. Go someplace with a proven record of excellence and make sure you feel comfortable before undergoing any esthetic treatment.

Gemini Laser for Wrinkles?

Hello Sheila.  Like Dr. Blinkski has pointed out, the Geminis is not the type of laser commonly recognized for wrinkle treatments.  It uses a long pulsed Nd:Yg laser which is not ideal for wrinkle treatments.  Search for Erbium or CO2 wavelengths, either traditional laser resurfacing or fractional laser resurfacing.  Good luck.
