Laser Treatment For Pigment
Pigmentation is the color in your skin produced by melanin, a natural pigment that also determines eye and hair color. However, if too much melanin is produced in one area, the result is a brown patch on your skin. Too much melanin can result from sun exposure, aging, heredity or congenital factors.
Laser treatments use short, safe bursts of light to target and treat specific skin conditions. Today’s lasers are very sophisticated and carefully deliver the appropriate amount of energy for your specific skin.
Our lasers are specifically designed to target the excessive pigmented cells producing the unwanted spot. It can make your skin look younger by removing age spots, sun spots, uneven pigmentation, diffuse redness and by stimulating collagen production, thus improving your skin texture.
The Elite+ laser delivers precise amounts of energy to effectively treat unwanted pigment and improve sun-damaged skin.
The procedure typically takes less than 20 minutes to perform depending on the size of the area or number of pigmented lesions being treated. We recommend at least 2-3 treatment sessions for optimal results.
You will need to avoid the sun, tanning beds, self-tanning creams and lotions prior to treatment. There may be some medications that you will need to avoid and your physician will cover these during your consultation.
Some patients experience a mild sunburn sensation for a short time after the procedure. You may apply some ice immediately following your treatment to help minimize this.
Laser hair removal can remove hair from faces, backs, chests, arms, underarms, bikini, legs and more.
Different lasers can effectively treat different skin types. The Elite+ laser can be used on a wide range of skin types from very light to very dark skin. During your consultation, Dr. Mantha will determine the best course of treatment for you based on a variety of factors such as hair color and hair type.
Typically, Verve recommends a series of six treatment sessions to provide the best aesthetic outcome. Laser hair removal technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth, so several treatments are needed to affect all of the unwanted hair.
Yes, and the treatment area needs to be freshly shaved before your session. You may shave the area the day before the treatment or the day of the treatment before coming in for your session. But you should not wax or pluck the hair during the course of your laser sessions.
It depends on which area is being treated. In general, face, underarms, arms, and bikini are approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Back, chest, and legs are approximately 8-10 weeks apart. Dr. Mantha will discuss the best treatment plan for you during your consultation.

Refresh and revive your skin. Do you have crow’s feet, fine lines or loose and wrinkly skin?
Feel confident in your skin with the Pellevé laser – a revolutionary laser that uses heat to penetrate the deep layers of your skin using advanced radiofrequency energy without damaging the top layer of your skin.
What is Pellevé?
Pellevé is an innovative, non-invasive and effective FDA-approved treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to immediately plump and lift your skin as well as improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines – all without needles or surgery. Pellevé is an ideal procedure for clients who want to see skin tightening results for jowls, eyelids, forehead, neck, and cheeks.
How does Pellevé work?
The Pellevé system uses radiofrequency technology to gently warm the skin deep beneath the surface, which over time, stimulates the body’s natural production of new collagen. 30, 60, 90 days after treatment your body is still working to naturally grow new collagen. Because Pellevé triggers your body’s natural reaction to rebuild collagen weeks after the procedure, a series of treatments will give you optimal results!
Is Pellevé right for me?
Pellevé is ideal for men and women with all skin phototypes. Unlike most laser treatments, Pellevé is gentle on the skin and is safe to use all year round, regardless of tan skin. Please discuss with your provider to determine if Pellevé is right for you.
What can I expect?
Pellevé is a comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. After the procedure you might have slight redness, which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during treatment and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.
How long does the treatment take?
Treating the entire face takes anywhere from 45-60 min. If you would like a specific area treated (e.g., the delicate areas around your eyes, forehead, or smile lines) your procedure could be completed in as little as 30 minutes! Because the collagen rebuilding process continues to work days, weeks, even months after your treatment, a series of treatments are required for the best results.

Teenagers and adults with facial acne scars, Sun damage, pigmented lesions; PICO sure technology is the safest Laser available with minimum discomfort and minimal downtime.
PicoSure® is the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser platform for multiple aesthetic applications including tattoo removal, acne scar treatment, removal of pigmented lesions and wrinkle treatment. This laser technology gently targets and eliminates pigment without harming the surrounding skin.
It’s important to consider your options. Face-lifts, fillers, and toxins are associated with significant downtime, risks, and side-effects. Patients often consider these treatments a “last resort.” The first step to achieving a more youthful appearance or just tweaking some trouble-spots may be a PicoSure laser treatment.
Melanin gives us our skin color. Pigmented lesions including sunspots, age spots, and brown patches, are dark in color because the melanin is concentrated in one area of the skin. Most pigmented lesions come from sun exposure while some patients are born with them. Hormonal changes can also induce pigment changes in the skin.
Lasers remove a variety of unwanted pigment. Age spots, freckles, and brown patches can all be removed with PicoSure. During a free consultation, your practitioner will put together a treatment regime to help you achieve pigment-free skin fast.
To improve the look of your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance by removing pigmented lesions will require only a few treatments. Darker, deeper and larger pigmented lesions may require additional treatments; however during the consultation, your practitioner will discuss treatment expectations with you.
Most patients find the procedure tolerable and require no numbing cream or anesthesia. PicoSure delivers energy in ultra-short bursts, and patients often compare the laser pulse to a snap of a thin rubber band.
After the procedure, the treatment area may be tender. It is important to keep the area clean and to avoid any irritation. Your practitioner will provided additional after care instructions as needed to ensure a quick recovery.
Dr. Mantha uses a laser to produce the rapid pulses to break up the ink. More precisely, PicoSure’s PressureWave™ technology produces very rapid pulses causing a change in pressure, which breaks apart the tattoo ink into microparticles.
The laser pressure signals cells to communicate and work together to release necessary proteins to speed up healing. The ink removal process is painless, often likened to the feeling of a snap of a rubber band.
Once the ink has been broken down, your body absorbs the tiny, dust-like pieces through your lymphatic system. This component of your immune system filters the ink and eliminate the ink particles through your body’s waste.
Thanks to PicoSure’s technology, tattoo removal is virtually painless and can be done without any special preparation. Many treatments can be done in just minutes and entail minimal to no downtime, unlike other procedures.
PicoSure’s technology is designed to trigger your body’s immune response during the procedure, to prevent discomfort and promote healing. New collagen and elastin are created at a cellular level without any damage or burning to your skin.
Dr. Mantha offers a variety of laser-based treatments in her Upland, California medical aesthetics center. She is well-versed in laser body sculpting and the PicoSure laser technology. In addition to tattoo removal, PicoSure is an effective tool for treatment of skin discolorations and pigmentations, acne scars, and wrinkles.

Sculpsure Body Sculpting®
Safely Reduce Fat Permanently
SculpSure is a heat-based laser that safely targets fat cells to eliminate fat permanently. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, exercise, and eat healthy foods, SculpSure’s permanent fat melting technologies may be for you.
In just one short 25-minute treatment, clinical trials show SculpSure technology permanently destroys an average of 24% of fat in the treated area.
SculpSure is a customized non-invasive procedure that uses heat to melt fat permanently using four applicators that target specific trouble spots. It works with any skin type, and is ideal for those who are physically healthy and exercise frequently, and it only takes 25 minutes for each section.
Dr. Mantha performs body sculpting using an advanced laser device called SculpSure. Flat applicators are placed on your skin just above the targeted pocket of fat, then they send laser energy down into the area of fat without harming your skin. Heat from the laser damages fat cells, then they gradually break down and get eliminated from your body.
The entire treatment only takes about 25 minutes. The procedure doesn’t hurt, but you can expect to feel periods of alternating warmth and cooling as the laser automatically turns on and off. Since the procedure is non-invasive and doesn’t harm your skin, you don’t need to worry about recovery time, and you’ll be able to get back to your normal routine as soon as the session is over.
While CoolSculpting and SculpSure both eliminate fat, CoolSculpting uses cold to freeze the fat, which sometimes causes "shark bites" or a jagged and bumpy result. SculpSure uses heat which provides a 20% distribution to provide a smooth finish.
Body sculpting is an aesthetic procedure that permanently eliminates those persistent deposits of fat that stick around in spite of diet and exercise. As the fat disappears, the targeted area of the body returns to the size and shape you desire, while skin tone improves. Body sculpting is achieved using noninvasive techniques that work best when you’re near a healthy body weight and you’re on a solid weight maintenance plan.
It takes time for all the damaged fat cells to break down, so it will be 6-12 weeks before you begin to see results. Within 3 months, the process will be complete and you’ll see the final effect. Since one treatment destroys about one-fourth of the fat cells in the targeted area, you may need several treatments to achieve your desired body shape.
You gain an important benefit when Dr. Mantha performs the body sculpting because she specializes in weight management, offering comprehensive services ranging from keeping weight-related hormones in balance to optimal nutrition. She can help you maintain the great results achieved with body sculpting, so don’t hesitate to talk with her about your weight challenges.
Complementary to our Weight Loss Program is our office based SculpSure laser – the most comprehensive, non-invasive, unwanted superficial fat reduction procedure for men and women out there! For those struggling to get rid of superficial pockets of fat that stops you from wearing those linen pants or little black dress after losing weight, this is the procedure for you. Done two times, four weeks apart and reduces 25% of superficial fat!
Cynosure’s TempSure Envi technology heats deep into the skin to regenerate collagen and reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines. Other indications include hair epilation, telangiectasia, and milia.
