Laser hair removal is the high-tech way to remove hair from anywhere on the body. It works by using pulses of laser light to target the pigment inside the root of each hair – the follicle. Laser light is absorbed by the follicle, which damages it and inhibits further hair growth.
You can prepare for laser hair removal, and ensure that you get the maximum benefit from the procedure, by following these simple tips:
Keep out of the sun for at least 2 weeks before each treatment.
Tanning increases the levels of melanin in the skin, which makes the laser pulses less effective. Artificial tanning products have a similar effect, and should also be avoided ahead of time.
No plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for 2 weeks before a treatment.
These techniques can disrupt the growth cycle of hair follicles, and laser hair removal is most effective when the hair follicles are undamaged.
Shave the day of your treatment.
In contrast to the previous two “no’s”, we ask that you shave the area to be treated before your appointment. Shaving removes hair without damaging the follicles, and maximizes the amount of laser light reaching each hair follicle. Using a fresh razor will also reduce the chance of infection.
Avoid applying makeup and deodorant the day of your treatment.
If you normally apply these to the area being treated, don’t use any the day of your treatment. The Doctor will also give you instructions on what to do after the treatment to minimize any redness or inflammation.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions ahead of an appointment.

Unsightly varicose veins are a top reason many of us choose to wear clothes that conceal our bodies. Spider veins are particularly troublesome because they often protrude from the skin in highly visible patterns. Spider veins most frequently show up on the legs, and they form for a variety of reasons including genetics, obesity, and hormonal fluctuations.
Fortunately, due to advances in medical technology there are now several treatment options available that can drastically improve the appearance of varicose veins. Sclerotherapy, for example, has become one the most popular vein treatments in the world, and it helps millions of patients improve the appearance of varicose veins.
Frequently Asked Questions about Sclerotherapy
What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy utilizes an injectable medication to remove unsightly veins anywhere on the body. This treatment is especially effective for small to medium sized veins such as spider veins.
Is spider vein removal safe?
Since spider veins have no physiological function they can be safely removed for cosmetic reasons.
How long will it take before I see results?
Patients usually see dramatic improvement in the appearance of varicose veins in three to four weeks following the procedure. Some require several treatments to achieve good results.
What is recovery like?
After the procedure, patients are advised to wear compression stockings for a period of 3 days. Patients should also avoid excessive heat exposure for the first 48 hours after the treatment.
Are there other alternative vein treatments available?
Laser vein therapy is another excellent treatment option for varicose veins. It utilizes light energy to accurately target and destroy the unwanted veins.

Fall is a season of new beginnings. The kids head off to school and we return to the office with a few more dark spots and fine lines than before our summer vacation.
Fortunately, the cooler months offer an excellent opportunity to repair and rejuvenate the skin. At Your Laser Skin Care we offer high quality and effective skincare products and treatments that will help restore your skin. One of our favorite lines, Skinmedica, offers a wide range of products that can help you transition to the needs of the season.
Below are a few helpful tips on how to adjust your skin care regimen to better accommodate the change in climate that comes with fall.
- Use sunscreen regularly
Although, you may feel less heat from the sun in the fall and winter, UV rays are something to be avoided throughout the year. Applying a sunscreen such as Skinmedica’s Essential Defense and Repair SPF 34 can protect you from the damaging rays of the sun and the unique formula also provides a host of other anti-aging benefits.
- Use a serum at night
Nighttime provides an opportunity for your body to repair itself. Serums are highly effective when applied at night, and the TNS Essential Serum is a fantastic option to dramatically improve the condition of your skin. This innovative serum delivers a combination of antioxidants, peptides, and human growth factors to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Refresh your skin with chemical peels
Skinmedica’s comprehensive range of medical grade chemical peels can treat a variety of skin conditions. The Illuminize peel is the least aggressive formulation and can reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion with little to no downtime. The Rejuvenize and Vitalize peels are tougher on dark spots, and can provide the deep exfoliation your skin needs in the fall months.
