Fillers, Laser Hair Removal, and FotoFacials for the Holidays
- Posted on: Dec 15 2018
This holiday season we have three procedures and treatments that make it a very merry season indeed: returning lost volume with dermal fillers, getting rid of unwanted hair with laser hair removal, and improving your skin with a fotofacial.
Pump Up the Volume for Your Holiday Parties with Dermal Fillers
Laugh lines are a cruel joke, pardon the pun. The more you laugh and smile, the more they form. Maybe Ebeneezer Scrooge wouldn’t have them, but the rest of us do! The same with marionette lines and parentheses lines: they’re all related to moving our mouth and lips.
At Skin & Cosmetic Solutions, we think December is the perfect time to put those unwanted lines on the naughty list, banishing them with our selection of dermal fillers from Juvederm and Restylane.
Dermal fillers, as their name implies, “fill” wrinkles and areas with volume loss (such as the cheeks) from beneath. They are injected and they instantly add volume to the area, pushing back up the depressed skin. Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid fillers, which use hyaluronic acid to bind with water molecules, naturally hydrating and plumping the skin. And who couldn’t use a little of that before a holiday party?
Zap Those Unwanted Hairs
Give yourself or someone you love the gift of permanently removed unwanted hair with our GentleMax Pro Laser. We set the laser wavelength to match the color of the melanin in your unwanted hair. The GentleMax Laser then delivers short bursts of light energy. The melanin in the hair shafts absorbs the light energy and it converts to heat. The heat travels down the hair shaft into the follicle where it is anchored. The heat damages or destroys the hair follicle and prevents future hair growth.
The key is to catch as many hairs as possible in the growth phase, rather than the transition or resting phases. With five million hairs on the human body, that can be a challenge. Still, from 85 to 90 percent permanent hair removal can be achieved at Skin & Cosmetic Solutions.
Fotofacial for Better Skin
Get intense with your skin care problems this holiday season with our FotoFacial/Intense Pulsed Light treatments. These treatments are great for rosacea, photo damage, sun damage, pigmentation problems, and for improving skin texture and tone. When the IPL is delivered onto the treatment skin, it feels like a small rubber band is being snapped against the skin, but there isn’t any recovery time. When the light penetrates the epidermis and enters the dermis layer of the skin, the melanin in age spots absorbs the energy and breaks down the melanin. The IPL energy also closes broken capillaries on the face and reduces areas of redness. Winter is a great time for these treatments, as most patients usually need from 4-6 sessions to achieve their goals. These are spaced about four weeks apart.
