Acne develops due to a buildup of bacteria in our pores. Some acne is also fueled by hormone changes. Frequent flare-ups or cystic acne can cause scarring when our bodies release a great deal of collagen to counteract acne damage. Acne scars form when our bodies release a great deal of collagen to counteract acne damage. This results in thicker and less flexible skin, giving it that characteristic bumpy texture.
How We Treat Acne & Scarring
BodyLase® offers a range of treatment options to address your acne concerns. Each of our treatments is individualized based on specific client needs. Moreover, many of these options can address several issues at once, including hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and aging skin.

Age spots develop due to the increase of overactive cells in our skin. The appearance of these spots, as well as concerns such as melasma and sun damage, is caused mainly by melanin clumping and ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. Though we know the cause of these spots, predicting when or where they will show up is practically impossible. Some age spots can take a long time to develop, while others can appear seemingly overnight.
How We Treat Age Spots
We offer a range of treatments for addressing age spots and other pigmentation concerns in Raleigh and Cary. All of these treatments are non-invasive and require minimal downtime post-treatment. We will take the time to evaluate your skin and determine which option is the best for you. To learn about each of our age spots treatment options, please visit the pages below
It’s tempting to focus our aesthetic skincare on our face and neck, but hands are often overlooked–and they are one of the first visible signs of aging. Some indicators of aging hands include wrinkles, dark spots, and rough skin. These can become more prominent on your hands than the rest of your body due to frequent exposure to direct sunlight. This, combined with genetics can result in your hands appearing as a dramatic contrast to the youthfulness of your facial skin. To combat these signs of aging, getting the care only a professional aesthetic team can provide is important.
How We Treat Aging Hands
Here at BodyLase, we offer dermal filler Radiesse to improve the appearance of your hands. This injectable filler features hyaluronic acid which improves the plumpness and texture of your skin. The active ingredient in Radiesse stimulates your natural collagen production, helping your body create its own natural “filler.” Best of all, these fillers don’t require downtime and do produce visible results shortly after your visit.

Broken capillaries can occur naturally, based on your body’s unique disposition, from injury, or as a part of the aging process. These twisted veins appear beneath our skin and can increase self-consciousness and sometimes even pain. If you are struggling with broken capillaries on the face, you may be familiar with frequent bouts of itching and irritation.
How We Treat Broken Capillaries
We offer laser skin treatments that use pulses of energy to target and eliminate broken capillaries, which are later simply absorbed by your body. Blood flow is then naturally redirected to hidden veins deeper below your skin. We offer laser facials and IPL Photofacial treatments to give you the best possible results.
The dimpling and uneven skin caused by cellulite are something 9 out of 10 people experience, regardless of weight or health. Cellulite forms when tight bands of connective tissue below the skin attach to the layer of fat underneath it. In women, fat cells and connective tissue in this layer are arranged vertically and these cells can protrude into the layer of skin.
How We Treat Cellulite
Thankfully, the answer is finally here: QWO®, the first FDA-approved injectable solution that reduces the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thighs. Once injected into the problem area, QWO goes to work by dissolving fibrous septae that draw the skin down to the deeper tissue. As the septae is dissolved, a tethering effect causes the skin to float up and away from the deeper tissues, giving your skin a much smoother appearance.
Collagen loss is a natural process that happens gradually over time. Collagen is crucial for keeping your skin looking supple, plump, and young. Aging and environmental exposure are the primary factors responsible for collagen loss. While there is no way to prevent the aging process, there are many treatments to address it!
How We Treat Collagen Loss
Our Raleigh and Cary med spas feature a range of treatments for addressing the appearance of your skin. If you are experiencing a loss of collagen in your cheeks, our cosmetic fillers may be a great option. These fillers can provide you with the plumpness needed to look refreshed. We also offer laser facial, microneedling, and Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatments to stimulate the production of collagen naturally.

Excess fat under the chin, also called submental fat or a double chin, can’t be spot-toned or eliminated with diet or exercise. We have a number of results-driven treatments at BodyLase to address concerns about a double chin and improve your confidence.
How We Treat Double Chins
At BodyLase, we offer both Kybella® and CoolSculpting to treat submental fat. Kybella effectively destroys the fat cells that have accumulated under your chin. This injectable treatment results in a noticeable reduction in the fullness of your face and a more defined profile. CoolSculpting® is not an injectable treatment; it uses cooling technology to freeze and kill fat cells. In either case, these treatments can provide effective results with little, if any, downtime post-procedure. To learn about each of our double chin treatment options, please visit the pages below
Everyone’s skin naturally produces oil, which is stored in our pores. Pores can become dilated due to aging, reduced skin elasticity, increased hair follicle volume, or excessive sebum (oil) production.
How We Treat Enlarged Pores
We offer both facials and laser treatments for addressing pore size. All of our treatments are non-surgical and can deliver beautiful results without the need for excessive downtime. You can also compliment your treatments with medical-grade skincare to extend your results. To learn about each of our enlarged pore treatment options, please visit the pages below:
Decreased facial volume often appears as hollow cheeks or thin lips. These structural changes usually begin around your 30s and worsen over time. These structural changes can begin in your 30s and continue over time. Facial volume loss is driven by the natural aging process which decreases both collagen production and subcutaneous fat production. This feeling of a flatter, or less plump face may have you looking for aesthetic treatments and BodyLase offers a wide variety of treatments depending on your personal goals.
How We Treat Facial Volume Loss
Our team does everything possible to help you reach your full beauty goals. Along with offering dermal filler treatments including the full family of industry-leading Juvéderm® products, we also offer Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatments and laser facial options. These services are designed to plump your skin and encourage collagen production, stimulating your body’s own collagen over time.

Everyone sweats. However, if you are experiencing an unusual amount of sweating in inappropriate situations, you may have hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis can be broken down into two categories: primary and secondary. Primary hyperhidrosis is a hereditary condition that impairs nerve function in our bodies, causing sweat glands to become overactive. People with primary hyperhidrosis experience sweat on their palms, the soles of their feet, and sometimes on their faces. Secondary hyperhidrosis occurs as a side effect of a medical condition like diabetes, menopause, or infection, among others. Schedule a consultation to discuss your sweat-related concerns and determine what treatment is right for you.
How We Treat Hyperhidrosis
BodyLase clients see relief from their hyperhidrosis condition after treatment with Botox. Botox acts as a neuromodulator, which has been shown to effectively shut down certain sweat glands, thereby reducing the severity of the problem for months at a time.
Skin discoloration, age spots, and sun damage are all types of hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation appears when cells called melanocytes begin to produce too much pigment. This overproduction causes spots or patches to form and they can appear anywhere. Many things can cause hyperpigmentation including inflammation, skin trauma, medications, certain cosmetics, and concerns such as melasma. Our dedicated BodyLase providers can address your hyperpigmentation concerns and help you reach your skin goals.
How We Treat Hyperpigmentation
Here at our Raleigh and Cary med spas, we proudly offer several treatment options for hyperpigmentation. Our IPL Photofacials, and other laser treatments (Fraxel and Clear + Brilliant), are completely non-invasive and serve the dual function of stimulating your collagen production and addressing dark spots. Our chemical peels work in much the same way and offer customizable options to fit your skin needs and cater to its sensitivity.

Peach fuzz is the name for the harmless very light hair that grows on our faces. These vellus hairs are rarely seen unless under direct light and are generally not an issue for most people. However, if you apply makeup regularly, you may see this hair as a nuisance that prevents smooth application of your favorite products. These hairs can quickly, safely, and painlessly be removed.
How We Treat Peach Fuzz
We offer dermaplaning treatments as a gentle but effective exfoliation procedure that removes vellus hairs. During a dermaplaning session, often paired with a facial or laser treatment, a medical-grade blade is precisely held at a 45-degree angle to exfoliate the top layer of your skin. The treatment not only removes dead skin cells, it also removes excess peach fuzz, leaving your skin smooth and hair-free. There is no downtime required after a visit.
Rosacea often appears in mid-life, and is characterized by facial redness and the appearance of itchy skin bumps. It can develop when a person’s immune system is somehow altered. These visible facial changes are caused when the body overproduces the cathelicidin peptide. The skin becomes inflamed and develops enlarged vessels along with irritation. This immune response may be triggered by genetic, environmental, or a combination of both factors.
How We Treat Rosacea
Rosacea responds incredibly well to laser technology. At BodyLase, our skilled providers offer a variety of customized laser treatments to help ease your skin irritation and improve texture. Several sessions may be necessary for the best results, but each will be delivered with the highest level of care and precision.

Sagging skin occurs as our bodies gradually produce less and less collagen over time. Losing a lot of weight quickly or exposing your skin to sunlight without protection can also accelerate this process, leading to greater skin laxity. Similarly, environmental irritants and genetic factors can also play a big role in the development of skin laxity. Without intervention from an aesthetics specialist, the aging process will only worsen over time. Therefore, stopping by one of our med spas for a refreshing treatment may be an excellent choice.
How We Treat Sagging Skin
At BodyLase, we offer treatment options to tackle the appearance of sagging skin and get you the look you want. Along with providing chemical peels and facials for hyperpigmentation issues, we also offer radiofrequency and laser services for aging signs such as sagging. Our Morpheus8 device is a microneedling system with Radiofrequency technology that not only stimulates collagen production but also enhances the contours of your face without the need for surgery. Laser facials and IPL Photofacials boost your natural collagen production and are a great option for less severe skin laxity.

Skin dryness can happen for a variety of reasons, the most common being aging. As we get older, our skin’s ability to renew surface cells slows down. This causes a buildup of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin that overshadow the otherwise rosy, pink, and hydrated tone of our faces. Additionally, having sensitive skin, struggling with excessive stress, and not taking off your makeup before bed can all lead to a gradual decline of your complexion.
How We Treat Skin Dryness
At BodyLase we strive to provide our clients with the best in aesthetic treatments. Both our Raleigh and Cary spas offer a range of facial treatments and laser services to give you the skin you want. For dry skin specifically, we recommend trying our HydraFacial, chemical peels, or other facial treatment options. These treatments are non-invasive and can be provided in less than an hour within the comfort of one of our med spas.

Belly fat, love handles, bra fat, and even those rolls below our buttocks develop due to a lack of exercise and improper nutritional habits. That being said, diet and exercise alone aren’t always the most effective when it comes to slimming or shaping specific areas of the body. Of the many factors that contribute to excess fat areas, genetics are quite possibly the least under our control.
How We Treat Stubborn Fat
Our Raleigh and Cary med spas are both equipped with a well-known, FDA-approved body contouring system designed to help you reach your goals. One of our most popular treatments, the CoolSculpting body contouring system, can effectively freeze and destroy fat cells around your belly, arms, thighs, and more. Our Kybella injectable treatment is a great option for double chin reduction, especially when combined with CoolSculpting.

Though beneficial, sun exposure can lead to sunspots, age spots, sunburn, and other similar concerns. Sun damage develops when we expose our skin to too much harmful UV rays. Both UVA and UVB rays can do a number on the appearance of our skin as well as our overall health. UVA rays have long wavelengths and penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin’s thickest layer. Prolonged exposure to these rays without sunscreen can lead to advanced aging and the appearance of skin sunspots. UVB rays are shorter in length, but can still cause a significant amount of damage. These rays burn the top layers of your skin and play a big role in the development of more complicated issues like skin cancer.
How We Treat Sun Damage
If you have noticed the appearance of spots on your skin due to the sun’s harmful rays, we can provide you with several treatment options at one of our North Carolina spas. We provide laser, and facial treatments designed to offer maximum results with as little downtime as possible. Best of all, these treatments are non-surgical and have little, if any side effects post-treatment. To learn about each of our sun damage treatment options, please visit the pages below
Having a skin care regimen can serve as a great means of maintaining your skin health, but in some cases, it may simply not be enough to prevent an uneven skin tone. Cells called melanocytes are the primary thing responsible for the development of uneven skin tone issues. When there is an influx of these cells, skin discoloration and dark spots or patches tend to appear in different areas of our skin. An uneven complexion is often difficult to conceal with makeup and typically requires aesthetic intervention to properly resolve. If you’re looking for an effective treatment option to help improve your skin, our dedicated staff is ready to help you.
How We Treat Skin Tone
At BodyLase, we offer laser, radiofrequency, and facial treatment options to help you get the most out of your visit. Our treatments are mostly non-invasive and can deliver exceptional results in less than an hour per session. When you arrive at either our Cary or Raleigh spa, we will explore your specific skin needs and determine which treatment is the best option for you. To learn about each of our treatment options for uneven skin tone, please visit the pages below
Androgens are the primary hormones responsible for the amount of hair you have on your body. These hormones control the density of body hair after we reach puberty and are more active in men. When you have a lot of androgens, you tend to grow thicker, darker, and more visible hair on your body. For those who have sensitive skin, having a lot of body hair can cause quite a bit of skin irritation at times. This is especially true when the hair is shaved off using a traditional razor. Having excessive body hair can also have a negative effect on your self-esteem, this is especially true for women struggling with dark facial hair.
How We Treat Unwanted Body Hair
We rely on a laser system that destroys the hair follicle while providing built-in cooling during treatment to minimize any discomfort. Our laser hair removal system uses a gradual heating process that damages your hair follicles without injuring the surrounding skin. During your unwanted body hair removal treatment, you may experience a pinching, stinging, or tingling sensation. Each session can be done in as little as 15 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and most clients need about 6-8 sessions to achieve the best results. To ensure that you maintain your smooth skin for the long term, we offer 50% off for every subsequent treatment for a lifetime.
Wrinkles and fine lines are obvious signs of aging. The gradual loss of collagen is the main thing responsible for the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the face. Repetitive facial movements and excess amounts of sun damage can also play a role, often making these aging signs more pronounced. The first of these three issues unfortunately can’t be avoided. After age 30, the collagen and elastin content in our skin declines at a more rapid pace, leading to advanced aging. If this is something that you’re experiencing, don’t worry, we’re here to help.
How We Treat Wrinkles & Fine Lines
At BodyLase, we provide our clients with a range of different treatment methods. Our BOTOX injections are perhaps the most popular method for reducing wrinkles. In fact, our expertise in administering this injectable has earned us the recognition of being among the top 1% of BOTOX providers in the United States. Along with this treatment, we also have laser facials, microneedling systems, and peels that offer great results with little to no downtime. When you arrive, we can explore each of these options in-depth and determine which will be the best choice for you.
