Laser Technology Offers Treatment for All Skin Tones

Posted on July 10, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Lasers are revolutionizing the way men and women remove unwanted hair. Historically, hair removal tended to be both painful and damaging to the skin. For example, one of the ancient rituals involved the use of volcanic glass to scrape away hair at the skin’s surface. Over time hair removal techniques have become less invasive, but the process of removing hair is still a dreaded experience for millions of people. Lasers offer the opportunity to simplify your beauty routine and avoid the discomfort associated with traditional hair removal methods.

The first generation of laser hair removal equipment worked best for patients with lighter skin tones. Patients with darker skin tones were also more likely to develop side effects such as hyperpigmentation, and scarring. Luckily, with advances in technology, laser hair removal can now be done safely and effectively on all skin types. The Candela Yag system we use is excellent at permanently removing unwanted body hair following a series of quick and relatively painless treatments. This laser device works by focusing a beam of light on the skin’s surface to destroy unwanted hair follicles. This sought after laser treatment has been very effective at removing hair without damaging the surrounding tissue for both light and dark skin types.

It’s No-Shave November at Your Laser Skin Care

Posted on November 7, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

If you’re like most Americans, you probably know someone whose life has been touched by cancer. Sadly, this deadly disease is on the rise: in 2016, an estimated 1,685,210 people in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer, and 595,690 will pass away from the illness.

No-Shave November is an annual event that was created to raise awareness for cancer. Each year in November, participants pledge to skip shaving for the entire month. The goal is to inspire conversation surrounding cancer and cancer prevention. Additionally, No-Shave November is symbolic of the struggles faced by those who have been diagnosed with cancer, as cancer patients often lose their hair during treatment. No-Shave November participants typically choose to donate the money they would have spent on shaving supplies (which definitely adds up!) to charities that support cancer awareness, treatment, and research.

Shaving is a Thing of the Past

Posted on October 24, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Shaving is the first hair removal method that many women try. By the time they’re teenagers, most girls have learned to tackle leg and underarm hair with a razor. It’s definitely an “old-school” beauty routine. But like many things in life, older doesn’t necessarily mean better. These days, we have a much better option for getting rid of unwanted hair— laser hair removal.

Reason #1: Shaving is time consuming

If you’re like most women, you probably shave your legs, underarms, and bikini line. On average, that takes about twenty minutes. And since it’s only a matter of time before the hair grows back, you likely shave every other day or so. That’s 60 hours per year spent on shaving! (more…)
