Our skin is a vital body component that everyone wants to feel comfortable in, but sometimes that’s not the case.

Your skin endures a lot, from persistent acne to rosacea to sun damage and signs of aging. Enter the Nordlys™ laser, a state-of-the-art device offering several skin rejuvenation treatments. Each treatment is customized to address your specific skin concerns, and in a few short minutes, you can be on your way to smooth and gorgeous skin.

What Is the Nordlys™ Laser?

The Nordlys™ laser is a device that offers several different types of non-invasive skin treatments.

SWT® (Selective Waveband Technology) IPL

Intense pulsed light (IPL) delivers pulses of light to targeted treatment areas. Also known as photorejuvenation, IPL technology uses broad-spectrum light to send energy deep into your skin to treat everything from inflammatory acne to skin tone and texture. The SWT® IPL offers different-sized handpieces that can get into hard-to-reach areas (like around your nose) and larger areas (like your chest and back). IPL’s broad-spectrum light technology allows the treatment of more than one skin issue at a time, and it can cover larger areas of skin, making it both effective and efficient. The SWT® IPL treatment is also safe for lighter and darker skin types.

Frax 1940™

Frax 1940™ treatments use fractionated laser beams to boost your body’s collagen and elastin production. Collagen keeps your skin looking plump and youthful, while elastin is responsible for your skin’s elasticity. As you age, your body produces less collagen and elastin, so your skin starts to wrinkle and sag. The tiny, controlled bursts of laser energy of the Frax 1940™ penetrate deep into your skin, gently heating the dermis. This stimulates your body to create new collagen and elastin, which improves your skin’s appearance. The Frax 1940™ is a non-ablative laser, which means it works to resurface your skin without damage to the surface.

Light & Bright™ Treatment

The Light & Bright™ treatment combines two of the Nordlys™ laser treatments—the SWT® IPL and Frax 1940™ for even more complete skin rejuvenation. The treatment begins with the IPL handpiece, targeting superficial sun damage and redness. Then, the Frax 1940™ is used to jumpstart collagen and elastin production to refresh and improve your skin’s texture.

Nordlys™ Laser Treatments FAQs

  • How long is the recovery after my Nordlys™ laser treatment?

    Downtime after a Nordlys™ laser treatment will depend on the treatment you received. There is minimal downtime after the IPL treatment, though you may notice a temporary darkening of pigmented skin spots or minor peeling for a few days after your session.

    After your Frax 1940™ treatment, your skin will feel warm for up to eight hours, and you will experience some redness and peeling as your skin cells turn over. 

  • How many Nordlys™ laser treatments will I need?

    The number of Nordlys™ laser treatments necessary depends on your skin, the degree of damage, the area being treated, and your desired results. Many patients undergo one to three sessions for the best results, which are maintained with yearly maintenance treatments.

  • When will I see the results of my Nordlys™ laser treatment?

    You will see the results of your Nordlys™ laser treatment just a few days after your session. Once your skin has sloughed off the surface cells, you’ll notice an improvement in its texture and appearance. Your results will continue to improve as new collagen and elastin are produced, smoothing and reviving your skin.
