Gemini Cool Lift, also known as Gemini Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a gentle laser treatment for wrinkles and sun damage. With two distinct wavelengths to choose from, long-pulse 1064nm ND:YAG and 532nm KTP, Gemini laser is known for its versatility, speed and effectiveness while maintaining the safety and reliability record of a company that has been developing surgical grade laser systems since 1989. At its North Vancouver facility, Skinlife provides laser treatment for rosacea. High performance advanced Gemini Long-pulse ND:YAG and KTS Laser effectively treats various vascular conditions from angiomas and facial veins to rosacea and port wine stains. A 2007 clinical trial compared two major types of vascular lasers – Gemini Laser(KTP) vs Pulsed Dye Laser – on telangiectasias (broken blood vessels) and general redness. Gemini laser was at least as effective or more effective than Pulsed Dey Laser on all subjects. On average the KTP achieved 62% clearing after the first treatment and 85% 3 weeks following the 3rd. 76% of subjects reported Gemini to be less painful than Pulse Dye Laser.


Rosacea can be classified in 4 stages. The first stage is characterized by redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead, occasional flushing, and permanent redness. The second stage is characterized development of pimples called acne rosacea. The third stage entails broken and enlarged blood vessels that are readily visualized in affected area. The fourth stage involves development of scar tissue called “rhinophyma.” While the only treatment option for the fourth stage is surgical intervention, stages 1 to 3 are traditionally managed by the uses of topical metronidazole, oral tetracycline, and oral retinoid. Many environmental triggers are known to aggravate rosacea. The list includes strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, stress, anxiety, cold, heat, alcohol, caffeine, foods high in histamines and spicy food. Rosacea is thought to be inflammatory condition of unknown cause. Many possible causes have been described as inducing the disease or contributing to its manifestation, such as genetic predisposition, abnormal vascular reactivity, changes in vascular mediating mechanisms, Helicobacter pylori infection, Demodex folliculorum infestation, seborrhea, sunlight, hypertension, and psychogenic factors. It has been suggested that dermal stimulation causing flushing and blood vessels damage in rosacea is, in fact, caused by inflammation from hypersensitive sensory nerve cells. This neurological inflammation is caused by signal proteins and peptides released due to overgrowth of bacteria in the digestive tract. Indeed a recent clinical confirms that rosacea patients exhibit a very significant bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine and the eradication of this overgrowth results in complete remission of symptoms in 96% patients without additional treatments. Successful management of rosacea requires careful patient evaluation and individualized therapy with appropriate variations and modifications, as the severity of the disorder fluctuates. The rosacea treatment program at Skinlife Vancouver entails gastrointestinal, neurological, and dermatological rehabilitation. Relevant laboratory evaluations are utilized to identify underlying gastrointestinal imbalances such as bacterial overgrowth and intestinal permeability. Based on laboratory and clinical findings, most appropriate medications and supplements are chosen to correct underlying gastrointestinal imbalances and to minimize nerve cell involvement. In the meantime, any active dermatological manifestations of rosacea are treated with topic and oral medications, vascular lasers, and intensive pulsed light therapy to improve cosmetic appearance.


Gemini Cool Lift, a no-downtime procedure is appropriate for the face but also for the chest, neck and hands – anywhere that sun damage shows. In a number of clinical trials, Gemini Laser Skin Rejuvenation showed improvement of 70-80% in redness and pigmentation, 40-60% in skin tone / tightening, 40-60% in texture and 30-40% in wrinkles with biopsy confirmed collagen regeneration.
