During the day, our bodies are exposed to various environmental toxins that could damage the skin. We repair the damage best at night when our body can fully concentrate on cellular repair and regeneration. Although our natural functions help us heal from the everyday stressors, we should also put in the effort to optimize our sleep routines. Here are three tips to make the most of your beauty sleep and reduce wrinkles.
Use a humidifier
Every night, before bed, many people take a few moments to nourish their skin with moisturizing lotions and creams. We strongly believe hydration is absolutely essential to achieving soft, supple skin. We also believe you should always be aware of the way the environment affects the condition of your skin. For instance, the dry air that circulates throughout your room as you sleep can create a dull complexion. A humidifier placed in the bedroom will infuse the air with moisture that will keep your skin hydrated.
Use silk pillowcases
Cotton is a common fabric used in pillowcases because it is affordable and easily manufactured. However, spending a night with your face resting on a cotton sheet can wreak havoc on your skin and hair. Cotton blends create unnecessary friction against your body, which results in frizzy hair and creased skin. Silk, on the other hand, is a soft and luxurious material that will not cause the friction and it will increase your comfort during sleep. Silk pillowcases are more hypoallergenic than cotton and polyester blends, and they are also better at moisture retention than cheaper fabrics.
Sleep on your back
It’s no secret that a good night’s rest can do wonders for your appearance, but sleeping can also age the skin if you are positioned incorrectly in bed. Sleeping on your side creates creases and exaggerates nasolabial fold on one side of your face. Over time, it will cause facial asymmetry and create wrinkles. You can prevent premature aging by simply sleeping on your back.

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.

Laser hair removal is the most effective way to remove unwanted hair. In some patients, laser hair removal is permanent, while others may require “touch-ups” annually. Although sessions you undergo for laser hair removal are quite straightforward, there’s a great deal of science behind the procedure. Laser is actually an acronym of “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation,” and the device releases light of a specific wavelength. Lasers weren’t originally used for the purpose of hair removal, but researchers noted in the 1970’s that using lasers for other medical uses resulted in hair loss. (more…)

Keeping your skin fresh and beautiful during hot summer months can be quite a challenge. Men and women often come into the Your Laser Skin Care offices asking for advice on how to keep their skin healthy over summer.
Here are skin care tips for this summer:
Blocking the Sun:
Wrinkles, coarse skin, sun spots. These are just a few of the ways skin can become damaged if it is not protected from hazardous sun exposure. UV rays can cause photo-aging, inflammation and many other skin problems. Skin can easily be protected by the use of sunscreen and it should be applied thirty minutes before going outside. If it’s too late and the sun has already done the damage, apply cooling balms.
Getting rid of Blemishes:
The summer months are known for causing pimples because people can develop extra oils on their face from the heat. The best way to ensure more blemishes than normal don’t come up is by using oil free makeup and glycolic acid cleansers.
One of the best ways to make sure your skin is healthy is by having a healthy diet routine. A lot of water, fruits and green vegetables will do the skin good. If a healthy diet routine is followed, you will be getting all the minerals, fibers, antioxidants, and vitamins you need, all of which will do wonders for your skin.

Unwanted hair remains one of the most consistent concerns in the beauty industry. And it’s a concern for women and men alike. Women are primarily concerned with facial hair while men are more troubled by excessive body hair on the chest, back and arms. But regardless of the area, hair growth is very persistent, very visible and, often, very embarrassing.
Traditionally, the treatments for removing unwanted hair have ranged from the razor, leaving stubble, nicks and nubs in its wake; depilatories, which are messy, irritating and, often, requiring touch ups with the tweezer; waxing and electrolysis, destroying each hair follicle individually, requiring between 15 – 30 treatments at a considerable cost.
So is it any surprise that the Laser Hair Removal process is one of the most commonly-performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S.?
Laser hair removal in Los Angeles is performed by targeting the hair follicle, directing a concentrated beam of light and heat to its root and destroying it while the surrounding skin remains unharmed. Small areas, like the upper lip, can be removed in minutes, at little cost, while larger areas (legs or bikini area), require more time. And sometimes, all hairs are not available to the laser, being in a dormant stage of growth, and five to six treatments are required for total hair removal.
During the treatment, you will be given special goggles or eyewear, to protect your eyes, and you might request a numbing topical cream to reduce the, usually mild, stinging sensation. A cooling device is also administered throughout the process to further reduce any discomfort.
With virtually no side effects, although there might be some brief swelling or redness, immediately following the procedure, both larger and smaller areas of treatment requiring a fewer number of sessions, the laser is the most high-tech and highly effective procedure for permanent hair removal available.
Call Your Laser Skin Care and put an end to the constant concern of unwanted hair today.

Unwanted hair removal remains one of the most persistent and unpopular beauty chores that both women and men face. Daily or weekly. For women, it’s primarily facial hair that causes the most embarrassment and concern; for men, it could be the hair on their chest or back. But regardless of the location, it is always an unpleasant, time consuming and tedious task.
So it’s no surprise that laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S. – even with new home products always arriving on the market. Shaving, depilatories and electrolysis all have their drawbacks. Either they have to be performed daily or several times a week or they are too painful, too expensive, too difficult to learn or simply too messy and inconvenient. The laser is easy and it’s permanent. And even better, it is not considered particularly painful and any side effects only last a few days.
The laser treatment is simple; a concentrated beam of high-intensity light and controlled heat is targeted into the hair follicles. The pigment, in the follicles, is penetrated and the hair is destroyed while the surrounding skin is not affected. This laser process offers several distinct benefits.
First, as the term indicates, the procedure is “laser fast.” Each laser pulse can treat many hairs in a fraction of a second. For example, the upper lip area may be treated in less than a minute! Secondly, the process is affecting only the hairs you want removed. And thirdly, it is the most permanent of the hair removal systems.
It’s important to note why it’s necessary to have repeated treatments, usually scheduled four to six weeks apart. The laser can only target the hair that is there! Dormant follicles need time to grow before the laser can remove them. So time between treatments is allowed until there is no new growth to treat.
With all the benefits of the latest and greatest laser technology, why spend time and money on any other process? Get ready for the Holiday Season and call for Your Laser Skin Care, LA near Beverly Hills, laser hair removal today.

Aging is a fact of life, but you don’t have to deal with sagging skin or wrinkles when innovative solutions such as Restylane exist. If you prefer not to deal with an invasive surgery and recovery, such as those associated with an eye or face lift, Restylane injections offer you a quick solution for common signs of aging.
What effect does the aging process have on the skin? As the body ages, the production of Hyaluronic acid begins to decrease. This natural acid is responsible for providing the skin with fullness and suppleness associated with a firm, youthful appearance and when it decreases, wrinkles and sagging begin to develop in the skin. Repeated facial expressions lead to wrinkles, and over time, those wrinkles become deeper and deeper. Restylane injections are used to plump up such areas of the face and are most commonly used for:
• Nasolabial folds – deep expression lines that run from the nose down to the corners of the mouth
• Lip enhancement – thinning lips are also a sign of aging, and Restylane restores the fullness of thinning lips to create a younger appearance
Many skin care centers offer injectable fillers such as Restylane, Los Angeles and Beverly Hills being two of the top locations for the procedure. The amount of Restylane needed varies from patient to patient – so your doctor will be able improve your appearance with a few simple sessions. Restylane injections are painless and don’t require any downtime – meaning results are noticeable in just a few hours. After a consultation with the healthcare professional, the Restylane is administered into areas of the face in which you want to minimize wrinkles or improve firmness.
Some side effects might occur – but are very mild. Look for:
While these effects might occur in the first week after the injection, there are several ways to manage symptoms:
• A cold compress on the injection areas will minimize swelling
• Avoid exposing the skin to intense cold or heat – as the skin will be numb and it could pose a risk for injury
• Visit your healthcare professional for a follow-up visit
Restylane injections are a quick and easy solution for dealing with common signs of aging, such as wrinkles and thinning skin and lips. In most cases, results last up to 6-8 months.
