Chemical Peels Can Clear Acne and Reduce Hyperpigmentation

Posted on November 22, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Everyone wants beautiful skin that is blemish free, but maintaining a flawless complexion is not an easy task for most people. Fluctuations in stress and hormone levels often trigger negative reactions in our bodies, and the effects can often be seen on the skin in the form of acne and inflammation.

Acne happens when dead skin cells, oily sebum and other debris builds up and block the opening of sebaceous glands. Clogged glands become infected which leads to formation of acne.

Often used over the counter acne products can sometimes exacerbate the problem and leave your skin irritated and hypersensitive. We believe that the best course of action is to seek help from a certified skincare professional who will help you find the best way to treat your particular type of acne.

Medical grade chemical peels for example are some of the more effective acne treatments available.  Superficial chemical peels, such as Skinmedica’s Illuminize Peel, will help remove debris from pores, which will in turn reduce the likelihood of acne formation. This chemical peel gives patients brighter and clearer skin in a matter of days.  Deeper chemical peels can also be used to treat mild to moderate acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. The best times of the year to do chemical peels are fall and winter due to minimal sun exposure during those months.

All About Lip Fillers

Posted on November 17, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Full, luscious lips are one of the most desirable traits in the world. However, due to age or genetics many find themselves disappointed with how their lips look. If you are one of these people there are a number of cosmetic treatments available to achieve more beautiful lips.

Many choose to overdraw their lips with liners to give the illusion of a perfect pout, but this is a temporary solution that often gives a very dated look to your makeup. Celebrities and beauty aficionados are increasingly turning to lip fillers as their means to obtain a smile that’s both sexy and attractive.

Our favorite lip fillers have hyaluronic acid as their main component. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body that has the remarkable ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Its impressive moisture retention abilities help the skin look supple and plump, and this ingredient is also incredibly effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Patients who receive lip fillers based on hyaluronic acid are truly receiving the best lip enhancement treatment available. The results last up to six to nine months, and patients see improvement in appearance of their lips immediately. These lip fillers are also completely reversible if you are in any way unsatisfied with the look of your augmented lips.

Lip fillers, in general, work to soften fine lines and increase the volume of the lips. However, not all lip fillers are created equal. Before you seek treatment, you should find a reputable aesthetic physician who understands how different formulations of fillers can better augment the lips. At Your Laser Skin Care, we utilize the most advanced lip fillers available on the market, and with each patient we carefully consider their facial anatomy before augmenting their lips.

Simplify Your Hair Care Routine with Botox

Posted on November 9, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Our hair tends to never look better than when we walk out of a salon with a fresh blowout. Protecting it changes the way we go about life since we now have to be mindful of how the elements may affect our beautiful hair. We start to avoid moisture because we know it will ruin it. Sweating, for example, can instantly transform voluminous hair into lifeless, flattened strands.

Fortunately, sweat is something we can now control with the help of Botox. More and more patients are turning to Botox to reduce sweating. Botox can be safely used in the underarm and scalp areas, and the in-office treatment will work to block the neurotransmitters that promote perspiration.

When Botox is injected into the scalp, patients can expect to see their hairstyles looking fresher for longer. Routine activities like exercising can now be performed without the fear of ruining your hair.

All About Laser Hair Removal for Facial Hair

Posted on November 6, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Modern makeup blending techniques require that we get up close and personal with our skin in order to achieve the most realistic looking results. However, this beautifying process also makes us acutely aware of all of our flaws and facial hair.

Traditional makeup, such as powders, tends to make hair stand out because the products cling to stray hairs, which in effect makes our efforts for a flawless complexion a never-ending battle. Thus, we go to great lengths to regularly remove facial hair. Waxing is the most common way to get rid of those unwelcome moustaches, but it can be quite irritating and damaging to the skin.

Fortunately, through advances in technology, lasers can now be safely and effectively used to permanently remove unwanted hair from our upper lip, chin, and sideburns. The laser system we use at Your Laser Skin Care is a state-of-the-art system that works by sending light beams to the hair shaft underneath the surface of the skin in order to destroy the hair follicle. The highly controlled light energy can be adjusted based on skin tone and hair thickness which makes this hair removal method a safe procedure for a variety of people.

If facial hair is a nuisance for you, please consider laser hair removal as your method of choice for a long lasting reduction of facial hair.  We recommend doing laser hair removal during Fall and Winter since exposure to the sun must be limited while undergoing these treatments. As a general guideline, it will take about 6-8 sessions to permanently remove facial hair, but your laser technician will be able to provide a more precise estimate during your initial consultation.

Age Gracefully with These Two Preventative Treatments

Posted on November 1, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

As we get older it takes more effort to maintain our appearance. Fortunately, if we choose to take preventative measures to keep our skin healthy and well nourished, we can help ensure we age as gracefully as possible. Here is some helpful information on two of the most powerful anti-aging treatments available only through cosmetic professionals.

Chemical Peels

Many over-the-counter exfoliating treatments often fall short of our expectations. For example, presaturated chemical peel pads available at your local beauty counter are designed with a formula that would be least irritating for the majority of customers and they also use relatively weak acids to avoid potential side effects. Thus, these prepackaged solutions would be well tolerated by most consumers, but it might not be the best option for you given your particular skin type.

An aesthetic medicine professional can create a customized treatment plan that includes chemical peel treatments that are strong enough to actually give real results. We have found that patients who regularly receive chemical peels have much better skin tone and texture compared to those who don’t use this treatment modality. At Your Laser Skin Care, we use Skinmedica chemical peels to effectively treat multiple signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Lasers are one of the most powerful anti-aging tools on the market today, and we see great value in starting treatments early on in life. It’s a wonderful preventive treatment because these devices have the ability to stimulate collagen production, which is the driving factor behind maintaining young and beautiful skin. Fractional laser resurfacing is one of the newest methods available to give patients smoother and healthier looking skin, and we have been quite impressed by its ability to correct numerous skin issues related to aging. We have found that The Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional laser is excellent at improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.

How to Look Less Tired

Posted on October 27, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

For many of us daily demands of work, school and family, leave little to no time to adequately take care of ourselves. Sleep becomes a luxury, and more often than not we find ourselves falling short of getting recommended 8 hours of sleep per day. When we forego getting a good night’s rest our bodies suffer greatly, and over it can greatly affect the appearance of our skin. Luckily, there are several cosmetic treatments that help refresh and rejuvenate the skin so that we can look less tired and feel more beautiful.

  1. Chemical Peels

Studies have shown that poor sleeper’s skin looks more aged than their well-rested counterparts. Researchers also found that sleep-deprived women have an impaired ability to protect against environmental aggressors, such as the sun, compared to those who regularly receive better quality sleep. We recommend prioritizing sleep as a natural and cost-effective way to maintain your appearance. Fine lines and uneven pigmentation can also be successfully treated with medical grade chemical peels. The peels available through SkinMedica can brighten your skin and improve its tone and texture.

  1. Eye cream

Skin around your eyes is extremely susceptible to the signs of aging and fatigue. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, this delicate skin region becomes a prominent display for dark under eye circles and a tired and worn out expression. Applying a high-quality eye cream such as TNS Illuminating Eye Cream can help counter the effects of sleep deprivation. This innovative cream can reduce the appearance of fine lines and make your eyes appear brighter and more beautiful.
