LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Excess and unwanted hair is a common problem for both women and men. Advanced laser and light based technologies are putting an end to tiresome tweezing, waxing, shaving and depilatory creams, as well as electrolysis.
American Beauty Master Cosmetic Laser Center offers the newest Laser treatments. This system works by blocking the re-growth potential of the hair follicle while protecting the surrounding tissue. These devises target numerous follicles simultaneously, allowing for large areas to be treated quickly. Light energy travels through the skin into the hair follicle creating heat, which destroys the follicle but leaves the surrounding skin intact. Treatments are SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The length of each individual treatment and number of treatments vary from person to person depending on the area to be treated, type of hair and skin type. Because treating hair in the active growing phase (anagen phase) has the best results and because hair grows in three varying stages, it is necessary to undergo several treatments for the best results.
After the end of each session, the majority of patients immediately sees a reduction in the amount of unwanted hair and can return to normal activities right away.
In general, patients require 5-6 consecutive treatments spaced approximately a month apart, to achieve a long lasting benefit.
Most patients can expect to achieve a 50-90% permanent reduction in the number of hairs following a full course of treatments.
Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Laser Hair Removal:
What are the benefits of laser hair removal over other methods of hair removal?
Unlike shaving, depilatories and plucking, laser hair removal provides a long term growth delay and permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal is fast and effective. Where electrolysis treats a single hair at a time, laser hair removal can cover large areas rapidly.
What does laser hair removal feel like?
Laser hair removal is typically a very tolerable procedure. On a scale of 1-10 most patients rate it at 3 or 4. The procedure is often likened to a rubber band snap. Certain areas may be more sensitive and you physician may recommend the use of a numbing cream prior to treatment.
How long does this treatment usually take?
Depending on the area to be treated, laser hair removal can only take a few minutes or over an hour. The most commonly treated areas, bikini line, upper lip, chin, and underarms typically require less than 20 minutes for treatment.
Can I return to work and resume normal activities immediately?
Yes, you can return to work and normal activities immediately. After laser hair removal, the treated site may feel like a mild sunburn for 24 hours or more. Slight redness and swelling surrounding the hair follicles is normal and is actually an indicator of a good clinical response. Although irritating preparations (glycolic acid, retinoids, ect.) should be avoided, make-up can be applied to the treated area shortly after treatment.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser energy is absorbed by the melanin in the hair; it travels down the hair into the follicle and is converted to heat. The heat injures the hair follicle preventing its ability to produce hair.
Who can be treated?
This is safe and effective on all skin types and tanned skin. Because it is absorbed by melanin, laser hair removal is most effective on darker hair.
How many treatments will be required?
Every patient is different. In general, most patients will require a minimum of 5-6 treatments spaced approximately 4-8 weeks apart to achieve satisfactory results.
Botox Cosmetic is the only FDA approved treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown lines. It is estimated that almost 3 million patients were treated with Botox Cosmetic in 2004 alone and for the past 3 years Botox Cosmetic was the most popular physician administered cosmetic procedure in the United States.
WHAT IS BOTOX COSMETIC?
Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein which is administered directly into the muscles causing a wrinkle. This causes the muscle to relax, resulting in a decrease in fine lines.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX AND FILLERS
Botox Cosmetic works on those wrinkles or lines caused by overactive muscles. It blocks the chemicals that cause these muscles to contract, thereby relaxing them and causing the wrinkle to be eliminated. Fillers such as Restylane and Collagen are used to fill spaces where volume has changed, and has left a resultant line or wrinkle.
WHAT IS TREATMENT LIKE?
Botox Cosmetic Treatment is minimally invasive – it is administered through a series of injections into the muscles causing the wrinkle. No anesthesia is required, although some patients may choose to numb the area prior to treatment with a cold pack. Many patients compare the minimal discomfort to an insect bite.
HOW SOON WILL I NOTICE IT?
Patients can expect to see results with in days or up to one week. Although results may vary, visible results can last up to four months.
Restylane is natural cosmetic filler. It is used to restore volume to areas that have a decrease with resulting wrinkles. Restylane is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
WHAT IS RESTYLANE MADE OF?
Restylane is the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal based Hyaluronic acid, which like collagen, is a natural substance that already exists in the body. Restylane’s Hyaluronic acid is produced under strict laboratory conditions.
IS RESTYLANE SAFE?
Yes, Restylane is safe. It has been used by physicians since 1996 in more than 1.5 million treatments, in over 60 countries. Restylane is biocompatible and allergy testing is not required.
HOW LONG DOES RESTYLANE LAST?
Restylane has proven to deliver long lasting results. Studies have shown that Restylane effects generally last for about six months. Having your next treatment before the product fully dissipates may enhance the lasting effect.
DOES RESTYLANE HURT?
Restylane is injected directly into the skin using an ultra fine needle. Since a needle is being injected into the skin, there may be associated discomfort. To ease that discomfort, various pain relief methods may be utilized.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
After your Restylane injection, results can be seen almost instantaneously.
HOW IS RESTYLANE DIFFERENT FROM BOTOX COSMETIC?
Restylane is natural cosmetic filler. In contrast, Botox Cosmetic relaxes the underlying muscle that is causing a wrinkle. Many patients combine the two for optimal results.
HOW IS RESTYLANE DIFFERENT FROM COLLAGEN?
Collagen is derived from animals (cows) and requires allergy testing. Restylane is non-animal based Hyaluronic acid and may be administered immediately – No waiting is required.
Microdermabrasion is a concurrent two-stage exfoliating process using a medical grade machine that precisely removes dead skin cells, layer by layer, until fresh new cells appear, exposing younger and healthier skin. The treatment hand piece sprays aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin, and then vacuums up the loosened dead skin cells and spent crystals. The ability to customize the treatment by regulating crystal flow and vacuum action surpasses any at-home exfoliating method.
This powerful exfoliating process can be used by all skin types and for anyone interested in minimizing the appearance of scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation problems, uneven skin tones, and sun-damaged skin. There is little to no discomfort with the treatment. The combination of stripping off dead skin cells and applying vacuum pressure to the skin surface stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. This results in smoother skin.
While one treatment can produce visible results, recommended protocol is a series of six treatments administered two weeks apart. For optimal results a maintenance treatment can be performed every four to six weeks. A customized skincare regimen of pharmaceutical grade skincare products can be utilized to maintain and even enhance results.
