What is LEA LaseGlo?
The LEA LaseGlo procedure uses LaseMD technology to deliver gentle, yet effective light energy that renews and rejuvenates the skin with no downtime. It uses a non-ablative laser that is gentle on the skin, while still producing impressive results.
During the procedure, micro-channels are created in the skin. As these micro-channels are made, the body’s natural ability to produce elastin and collagen is stimulated, resulting in healthier skin at the cellular level. As the skin heals, it becomes smoother and develops a youthful glow.
