Hand Makeovers Are on the Rise!

Posted on August 18, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Say Goodbye to Sunspots

They say you can tell someone’s age by looking at their hands. We often forget to protect our hands from the sun in the same way as our face, which can lead to sunspots and a leathery, aged appearance.

In the same way they are used to treat sun damage on your face, IPL and chemical peels can both be used to rejuvenate your hands. We can help you determine which treatment is right for you based on your complexion and degree of sun damage.

Fill Out Thin, Wrinkled Hands

As you get older, your hands will likely lose volume and plumpness, leaving behind thin, crepey skin. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can create more youthful looking hands by replacing lost collagen and smoothing out wrinkles. Fillers are quick and pain free, and last around six months when injected into the hands – not quite as long as facial fillers since the hands are used frequently, causing the fillers to be metabolized more quickly.

Your Laser Skin Care in Los Angeles specializes in Botox and Fillers injections, laser hair removal and IPL among many other services. Please call us at (323) 525-1516 or visit us online at www.yourlaserskincare.com to schedule a free consultation.

Your Way to Luscious Lips

Posted on February 14, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Wish you had the plump and beautiful lips most women find so desirable? With today’s lip fillers, you can have that look today.

It’s no secret that both men and women love the look of full, well-proportioned lips. They suggest youth, vibrance and sensuality. Adding a little volume to your lips can make you look and feel your most desirable.

Getting lip fillers at our Los Angeles cosmetic clinic is fast and easy. Lips are one of the most sensitive parts of our bodies, so we start with a gentle numbing product. This will take a few minutes to set in so that the procedure can be done quickly and comfortably.
Next, we outline the area to be enhanced. This shows where we want to add plumping to give your looks a well-proportioned, fuller look.

Then, the filler product is I injected into the lips. We use hyaluronic acid fillers that are formulated for a quick and comfortable procedure. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already occurs in your body, you can be confident that you will get the results you want without a risk of allergic reaction.

The results are instant, allowing you to walk out with fuller and rounder lips than you had when you arrived.

There is sometimes slight swelling and bruising, which will disappear a few days after your procedure. A little ice applied as soon as possible after your procedure can help with swelling and tenderness, allowing you to heal quickly and enjoy your new look.
At your Laser Skin Care, we are passionate about helping Los Angeles women get the look they want. Call us at (323) 525-1516 or visit us at www.yourlaserskincare.com to schedule a complimentary consultation today.

 

Giving Thanks – to Botox!

Posted on November 21, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Botox is a great way to make sure that you look your very best for all of your upcoming Thanksgiving festivities.

One of the things that we love about Botox is its versatility. Botox can be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows, and at the corners of the eyes. But it’s also a great way to lift the brow without surgery, reduce excess sweating, or just look a little younger and fresher at Thanksgiving dinner. We also love how long-lasting Botox is. Most of our patients see results for about 4 months after a Botox treatment. That means that one injection will keep you looking refreshed throughout the holiday season and into the new year.

Study: Botox, Fillers, Laser Treatments Are Safe

Posted on December 11, 2014 by Ella Fedonenko

Even though these cosmetic procedures have been around for quite some time, some people still have qualms about their safety and potential side effects. A new study, the results of which were published Nov. 5 in “JAMA Dermatology,” is looking to assuage any concerns that may still exist about these procedures, which are offered and routinely performed at Your Laser Skin Care.

According to the new study, fillers, Botox and laser skin treatments are extremely safe with a surprisingly low rate of side effects. Even in the case of slight side effects (occurring in less than 1 percent of the procedures), the results were minimal and included bruising and minimal skin discoloration.

The study, lead by dermatologist Dr. Murad Alam at Illinois’s Northwestern University, collected data from 23 U.S. board-certified dermatologists. The dermatologists were asked to record the results of their cosmetic procedures for three months and then document any side effects for the next year.

The dermatologists who participated in the study regularly perform these cosmetic procedures, so the results don’t account for procedures performed by less-proficient dermatologists. Additionally, data regarding patients’ satisfaction with their physical appearance after the procedures was not collected.

RESULTS: The study’s data (from 20,399 total procedures)proved that people have much less to be concerned about than previously thought. Data showed that:

  • Approximately 1 in 416 procedures had a negative side effect.
  • Fillers (like Juvederm for example) caused side effects like skin beading or lumpiness in only 1 in every 135 cases.
  • Cosmetic procedures employing neurotoxins, like Botox, only caused a negative side effect in 1 in 3,333 procedures.

The study helps to show how these cosmetic procedures are very safe and sometimes preferable to major surgery like a facelift, which involves anesthesia.

Those looking to try one of these treatments should always research facilities and dermatologists before selecting a professional. Board-certified and well-established professionals like at Your Laser Skin Care — Los Angeles’s top-rated office — will ensure safety and the best results.

Lip Augmentation

Posted on January 6, 2014 by Ella Fedonenko

Today, lip augmentation is fast and, depending upon the product, may last for several months or, even a year. With no real downtime. Some soreness and swelling may occur but is, usually, resolved within a week. And the look is truly lovely.

Along with the ease of the procedure, fillers allow the practitioner great control over the volume of the product used as well as its perfect placement. It may even be done over a series of appointments for a very gradual and natural look. And finally, an added bonus of using fillers is that the little vertical lines, above your upper lip, may disappear as part of the process.

So who might benefit the most from the lip enhancement procedure? Perhaps your upper lip is too thin and tends to disappear when you smile. Or you have a “gummy” smile and would like to expose less of your gum line. The natural aging process, and resulting loss of volume, may have changed the shape of your mouth or caused the corners of your mouth to droop a bit, turning downward. Your lips might be uneven and a bit more fullness might add just the right touch of balance and symmetry.

There are many reasons for enhancing the size and shape of your lips but remember that everyone is different. You and your practitioner should spend time really studying your face, your mouth, your skin and talking about the best look for you. There should never be a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to your unique features and style.

And do keep in mind that lips are a, particularly, delicate area of your face and you should have a very experienced doctor or practitioner performing procedures on it.

Do your homework. Then relax and call Your Laser Skin Care center for a free consultation on creating your shapely new smile.
