Top Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Posted on May 1, 2019 by Ella Fedonenko

Of all the cosmetic problems that you might want to address, hair removal has the widest range of available treatment options. They range from traditional shaving, plucking, and waxing techniques, through depilatory creams, threading, electrolysis, IPL, and on to our favorite – laser hair removal. Read on for a summary of the various advantages offered by this treatment method.

Highly Effective Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has been extensively tested and is regarded as providing the most reliable, safe, and long-term solution for hair removal. Depending on the laser equipment being used, it can now be used by people with light or dark complexions, and with any hair color. Laser light pulses are focused and applied very precisely, allowing very fine control over which hair follicles are targeted by each treatment. A consequence of this is that individual treatments provide more “bang for your buck,” and allow desired results to be more quickly achieved.

No Annoying Side Effects

Lasers can be used to target hair anywhere on the body, with the sole exception of areas immediately surrounding the eyes. Laser hair removal provides long-term results – hair typically doesn’t re-grow for years, and if it does reappear it is typically finer and lighter in color. Laser hair removal does not cause razor burn, skin irritation, or ingrown hairs following treatment, avoiding major causes of discomfort and irritation caused by more traditional techniques. As laser light pulses are used to target hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface, they’re also effective at removing any existing ingrown hairs.

Due to the way that individual hair follicles exhibit cyclic behavior, and because laser pulses can only kill hair follicles when they’re actively growing, you will need to repeat laser hair removal more than once before all hair in a given area will be removed. Permanent (or long-term) hair removal will be achieved after several sessions – sometimes as few as five or six, sometimes more.

Quick and Easy Treatment Sessions

Convenient individual treatment sessions are typically short in duration, normally between 10 and 20 minutes. Results are normally apparent within a week or two. Unlike other techniques, laser hair removal is effective without needing to first wait for individual hairs to grow out to the skin’s surface. This means that you can continue shaving in the midst of a course of laser hair removal sessions – unlike waxing, for example, when you have to show up for treatment with visible surface hair in place. As individual treatments are relatively short, you should be able to schedule laser hair treatment at a time that’s convenient for you.

Cost-Savings Over Time

Cost-effective laser hair removal is not only an effective and rapid way to eliminate unwanted body hair, but its results are also long-lasting. Consequently, it will allow you to avoid having to regularly schedule hair removal sessions and/or purchase hair removal supplies. Once the cost and time savings that come with being able to eliminate regular hair removal treatments are factored in, laser hair removal is the most cost-effective long-term solution. Electrolysis is sometimes regarded as a less expensive alternative to laser hair removal, however, it requires a far larger number of treatments to be equally effective, making its overall cost higher.

Plus, laser hair removal offers a very low chance of side effects; any that do occur are overwhelmingly minimal and of short duration. When administered by an experienced practitioner it is regarded as a very safe technique.

Laser Hair Removal Popularity Is Growing Among Men

Posted on May 7, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Recent study found that 84.4 percent of men in the U.S. now remove hair on more than just their faces. This growing trend is due to several factors:

Culture shifts

Male body hair used to be associated with masculinity. That has changed somewhat in recent years. Chest hair is still considered attractive, but excessive hair on the back and shoulders is not.

New options

The razor is no longer the only hair removal option for men. New techniques with longer lasting results have been developed to help men remove unwanted hair.

Popularity of laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular solutions for hair removal.

It works by targeting hair follicles with a laser and removing them with the heat generated by it. It can take 6-8 sessions for the best results, with sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. Dark, coarse hair responds best to laser hair removal, which is why it can be such an effective method of hair removal for men.

Beauty Tips for Busy Moms

Posted on February 1, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Being a mother is one of the hardest, and yet most rewarding experiences women can have during their lifetimes. Mothers are constantly putting the needs of their children before their own, and frequently they don’t have time to take care of themselves consistently. Here are four tips for busy mothers on how to rejuvenate your natural beauty.

 

  1. Consume more greens

Making a decision to choose a green smoothie over cheaper and more sugary beverage option such as a soda drink can be a difficult choice for many. We personally advocate for the daily consumption of plant-based smoothies because of their impressive beautifying effects. By nourishing your body with healthy and nutritious ingredients, you are more likely to maintain a clear and glowing complexion. Studies have shown that soda drinks can actually speed up the aging process. If you are looking for practical ways to combat aging, you should start with healthier meal choices and skip sodas altogether.

 

  1. Sleep

Sleep is one of the simplest methods to rejuvenate your mind and body. A good night’s rest leads to increased energy, clearer complexion and improved mental clarity.

 

  1. Juvederm

Aging tends to affect the under eye area first which can make you look tired and worn out. If you are interested in restoring youthful appearance of your under eye area, fillers might be the right cosmetic treatment for you. Juvederm is one of our favorite dermal fillers, and it is particularly well suited for the under eye area.

 

  1. Botox

Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the world. Our patients especially love Botox because it offers the opportunity to look years younger with virtually no downtime.

Your Laser Hair Removal Questions Answered

Posted on September 8, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

If you are tired of shaving and waxing, then laser hair removal might be the ideal solution for you. After completing the recommended number of treatment sessions, results are often permanent, so you may never have to worry about in-grown hairs again.

Here are answers to some of the most common questions about laser hair removal:

How does it work?

Laser beams target the pigment of the hair follicles; the follicles absorb the light, which in turn destroys them, and they can no longer grow hair. This is why laser hair removal was traditionally best for those with fair skin and dark hair – this combination makes it easiest for the laser to find the hair follicles.

More advanced technology, such as the Candela YAG laser, has allowed patients with darker skin tones to enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal as well.

Why do I need multiple treatment sessions?

It is impossible to target every hair follicle in one treatment session because the laser can only treat follicles that are in a growth phase. In order to reach the hair follicles that are “resting” during your initial treatment, you will have to come back in 4-6 weeks for another session. Most patients will need about 5-6 treatments, on average, to see maximum results.

How painful is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal sometimes feels like being flicked with a rubber band. It is common for a numbing cream to be applied before a laser hair removal treatment, but most patients will only experience mild discomfort or no pain at all, depending on the area being treated. Many laser devices also have a cooling feature that helps to minimize pain.

Look Stunning on Your Big Day with this Bridal Beauty Timeline

Posted on August 4, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

The journey from your engagement to your wedding day can be a challenging time in your life. Brides-to-be often feel overwhelmed once they realize how limited a time they actually have to plan their wedding. Engaged couples absolutely need a team of friends and family to help them put together a perfect wedding.

A common mistake brides make during their wedding planning journey is having a limited view on what it takes to bring to life that perfect wedding day look. If you want to look like your best self on your wedding day, you will likely need some help from aesthetic medicine practitioners. These skincare specialists will do more for you than create the illusion of a flawless face; they can actually make you look younger and more beautiful. In our practice we worked extensively with brides to strategize and deliver the best results given the individual’s beauty goals and timeline. Here are two pre-wedding beauty treatments to try that can help bring forth an even more beautiful bride.

Botox
Botox is an excellent option for women who are concerned that wrinkles and facial lines will diminish their chance of looking their best on a wedding day. Botox is one of the most effective methods available to smooth facial lines, but it will take a couple of weeks to reveal full results of the treatment. Brides should have their first Botox session at least 5 months before their wedding day so that they have time to fine tune areas of the face that they would still like to improve.

IPL Photofacial
Your wedding day will be one of the most photographed days of your life. For women who want to remove the signs of sun damage so they could look flawless on their wedding photographs, we strongly recommend a series of IPL Photofacials. This advanced therapy uses light energy to eradicate sun spots, spider veins and pigment problems. For best results, we typically perform 2-3 treatment sessions approximately a month apart, and brides can usually see results after the 2nd treatment.

3 Things to Avoid When Doing Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Posted on June 30, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Laser Hair Removal technology works by destroying the hair follicle through controlled bursts of high intensity light. You will need several treatments to reduce your unwanted body hair, but each session is relatively quick and we offer treatment packages to make the process more affordable. Our laser technician will work with you to make each treatment session as comfortable and effective as possible, but there are few things you can also do yourself to ensure optimal results.

1. Avoid sunbathing
Avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to your treatment. Sunbathing makes your body more sensitive to heat, which in turn increases the possibility of burns and hyperpigmentation.

2. Avoid waxing and plucking
Do not wax or pluck your hair during the two weeks leading up to your treatment. Waxing and plucking interferes with the hair follicle’s growth cycle and may extend the number of sessions you need to achieve good results. We recommend that you shave the unwanted hair the day before your appointment to maximize the results of your treatment.

3. Avoid perfumes, deodorant, and lotions
Do not apply any moisturizing agents to the treated areas the day of your treatment as this can interfere with the laser’s ability to destroy hair follicles. The skin should also be cleaned thoroughly prior to your appointment.
