    Gemini Laser - Introduction

Gemini Photo-Rejuvenation is a laser treatment that has provided good to excellent outcomes in skin rejuvenation. Gemini Laser removes the dull, dead skin cells and sun-damaged cells while stimulating new cell growth to reveal new, fresher, healthier skin on the surface. 

The Gemini laser has two frequencies for the treatment of skin conditions – 532 nanometres (green KTP) and 1064 nanometres (Nd:YAG). The green light of the KTP laser is attracted to the blood in capillaries and the melanin in the skin, making it an ideal laser for treating broken capillaries, rosacea, freckles, sunspots and pigmentation. The Nd:YAG laser is a deeper penetrating laser that can be used to treat deeper blood vessels and pigmentation, and even stimulate collagen regeneration for skin texture refinement. All areas of the body can be treated. The most common area treated is the face.

  • Photo aging
  • Sun Damage
  • Pores
  • Texture
  • Colagen Stimulation

Gemini Laser - How it works

The Gemini laser is non-ablative and works by penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin and thereby stimulating collagen production from inside the skin. The energy from the KTP green laser is attracted to oxyhaemoglobin, a constituent of blood, and closes off both the deep and superficial blood vessels, reducing capillaries, redness and flushing. Laser light is also selectively absorbed by melanin pigment in the layers of skin to reduce pigmentation. Plus it stimulates collagen to refine skin texture.

Post Treatment

Avoid sun exposure for a minimum of 48 hours. Use SPF +30. Ice to reduce any minor swelling.

"I could see my coworkers looking at me differently after my second treatment. After the third laser treatment, my skin was so much smoother the people in my office couldn't refrain from asking what my I was doing. I couldn't be happier."
