RED DEER, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2011) - Dr. Maureen Bakken and Laser Derm Clinic have purchased a new hand-piece for the Palomar Starlux Pulsed Light and Laser System used for skin rejuvenation and for the removal of pigments, sun damage, rosacea, acne and age spots. Most laser hand-pieces have a limited number of light pulses before the equipment becomes weakened and less efficient whereby the results for treating pigments and skin discolouration become less effective. Laser Derm & Wellness Centre in Red Deer monitors all laser equipment to ensure that the integrity of the pulsed light (used for skin rejuvenation treatment) is up-to-date and verified as effective for the treatment of pigments, sun damage, rosacea, acne and skin discolouration.

The benefits for patients treated with the Palomar Laser for pigment and skin discolouration includes:

Benefits of Laser Derm Laser for Skin Rejuvenation:

  • Excellent aesthetic results with less treatments
  • Minimal discomfort with patented laser tip coolant
  • No downtime

Dr. Maureen Bakken of Laser Derm & Wellness Centre stated, "As the Aesthetic Laser Industry continues to grow it is important for not only our clinic, but all clinics who offer laser skin rejuvenation to use up-to-date equipment to ensure the reputation and success-rate for skin rejuvenation remains intact."
