MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer and has many benefits.

This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks.

What microdermabrasion can do

    •    Improve age spots and blackheads

    •    Improve hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)

    •    Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance

    •    Lessen the appearance of stretch marks

    •    Reduce fine lines and wrinkles

    •    Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores

    •    Treat acne and the scars left by acne

Microdermabrasion helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger-looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that is abundant when you're a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.

TATTOO REMOVAL

Young Blond Model

Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.

You should first schedule a consultation to evaluate your tattoo and get an advise on the process. The number of treatments you will need will depend on the age, size, and color(s) of your tattoo. The color of your skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment goes, will also affect the removal technique 

 

Smaller tattoos will require fewer pulses while larger ones will need more to remove them. In either case, to completely get rid of a tattoo, it will take several treatments. After each visit, your tattoo should become progressively lighter.

 

Immediately following the treatment, use an ice pack to soothe the treated area. And apply an antibiotic cream or ointment and bandage to protect it. You should also be sure it’s covered with sunblock when you’re outside.

CARBON PEEL/ HOLLYWOOD PEEL

Laser carbon peels deeply exfoliate skin. They also help stimulate collagen production.

Laser carbon peels are used to treat:

    •    acne

    •    acne pigmentation

    •    acne scarring

    •    enlarged and clogged pores

    •    melasma

    •    photoaging

    •    fine lines and wrinkles

Chemical peels also treat these skin conditions, but here are some of the main differences between the two:

    •    laser carbon peels use heat instead of chemicals for results

    •    laser carbon peels require no down time

    •    people with sensitive skin or skin conditions like eczema will usually experience less redness and irritation after a carbon peel than from a chemical peel

 

Here’s what you can expect from a typical laser carbon peel:

    1    Your doctor will spread a layer of liquid carbon onto your face. The carbon absorbs oil, dirt, and dead skin cells from deep within the pores.

    2    You’ll wait for about 10 minutes for the liquid carbon to dry.

    3    After the carbon has dried, your doctor will give you eye shields to protect your eyes from the laser.

    4    Your doctor will pass a laser, such as the Nd:YAG, over the skin on a low-energy setting. This heats up the carbon, binding it to the epidermis.

    5    If you have very sensitive skin or dark patches like melasma, your doctor may recommend skipping the heating step. The laser also heats up subdermal tissue, boosting collagen and plumping up fine lines.

    6    On a higher-energy setting, the laser will be used to fragment the liquid carbon into tiny particles.

    7    A smoke evaporator attached to the laser will remove the carbon as well as the debris and impurities it contains.

 

    1    apply a hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen to your skin after treatment.

You should immediately see brighter, glowing skin and tighter pores.

If you have sensitive skin, you may experience a slight pinking or reddening of the skin. This usually lasts for one hour or less.

 

Laser carbon peels are typically very effective for improving the look of oily skin and large pores. If you have severe acne or acne scarring, it may take several treatments before you see full results. Fine lines and wrinkles should also be visibly diminished after one or more treatments.

 

In Veecareskin 

a young woman with severe pustular, cystic acne received six peel treatments two weeks apart.

Significant improvements were seen by the fourth treatment. After the sixth treatment, her acne was reduced by 90 percent. These long-lasting results were still apparent at a follow-up visit two months later.

Like chemical peels, laser carbon peels won’t provide permanent results. You may need ongoing treatments in order to sustain the benefits of each. Carbon peels may be repeated every two to three weeks. This period of time allows for ample collagen regeneration between treatments.

ELECTROLYSIS

Applying Face Cream

Permanently removing all body hair, Electrologists use a thin needle, which is often even finer than the hair. They insert the needle into the opening of the hair follicle. A small electrical current destroys the hair growth cells. The skin where the needle enters may feel temporarily hot or like a pinch.

 

Number of treatments needed

You will need several appointments. The number of sessions needed to achieve permanent hair removal differs from person to person. Typically, you need an appointment every week or every other week. The appointments can last for up to a year and a half.

Treatment length depends on several factors, including the body area and the type of hair growing there. If you’re treating a larger area or an area with coarse hair, you’ll need more treatments.

 

Why do I need so many sessions?

Hairs have different growth cycles. Your hair follicle produces hair and discards it through shedding. This hair production cycle is a process of growth, rest and replacement. Individual hairs are in different phases of this cycle. More than one treatment catches the hairs at the right point in the cycle to destroy them.

 

Advantages of Electrolysis

Many people experience permanent hair removal after finishing electrolysis treatments. Also, electrolysis works with the widest range of skin and hair types. It’s good for sensitive areas of the body, like the face or bikini line. The main disadvantage to electrolysis is the length of time needed to achieve permanent hair removal.

 

Are there any risks or complications of electrolysis?

Electrolysis is very safe. Very slight risks of infection (from an unsterile needle) or scarring exist if the electrolysis is not done correctly. These risks are very low if you choose a certified, professional electrolysis practice.

You may have a slight reddening of the skin during or right after treatment. It’s very short-lived. People with darker skin may have temporary dark spots on their skin. The spots fade over time, so don’t use bleaching cream on them.

 

Will electrolysis leave a scar?

Scarring is rare after electrolysis treatments.

 

Is electrolysis painful?

Electrolysis doesn’t typically cause too much discomfort. You may feel a slight tingling. 

Is electrolysis permanent?

Yes, electrolysis safely and permanently removes hair from all skin tones. It is the only FDA-approved permanent hair removal treatment. Because electrolysis permanently destroys the growth cells in the hair follicles, the hair will not grow back.

MICRONEEDLING

Two Women

Microneedling is an invasive procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.

It is also called Collagen Induction Therapy 

VASCULYSE  SKIN TAG AND SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL TREATMENT

Natural Beauty

VascuLyse is non-invasive, in that it doesn’t pierce the skin. It leverages mild electrical currents through a process called “thermo-coagulation”, which works on the surface of the skin to remove unsightly marks without scarring. Healing time is short, typically taken between 3 to 5 days. There may be a scab after your treatment, but it will heal within a few days. Always remember, do not pick your scab! 

 

If you’ve noticed a problem area on your skin, or if you know that you have a skin tag, milia, ruby points, telangiectasia, stellar angioma, or cholesterol deposits, VascuLyse 2G may be right for you. As with all our services, the best process is to visit our clinic to have our estheticians and beauty experts examine your problem area and recommend the best way to treat it.

CHEMICAL PEELS

Beauty Portrait

Chemical peels are used to treat certain skin conditions or to improve your appearance by improving the tone and texture of your skin.

Chemical peels are most commonly performed on your face, neck or hands. They can help reduce or improve:

    •    Fine lines under your eyes or around your mouth and wrinkling caused by sun damage, aging and hereditary factors.

    •    Certain types of acne.

    •    Mild scarring.

    •    Sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, uneven skin coloring.

    •    Precancerous scaly spots called actinic keratosis.

    •    Rough skin, scaly patches, dull complexion.

 

Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed with an agent that removes excess oils, while your eyes and hair are protected. A chemical solution is then applied to your skin. Chemical solutions typically used include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid or carbolic acid (phenol). The different types of chemicals cause a controlled injury, each penetrating through to a different skin depth, then peeling away to reveal a new layer of skin.

 

    •    A light (“lunchtime”) chemical peel provides subtle improvement over time and is often done in a series. The outermost layer of skin is removed. This choice may be best if you have fine wrinkling, acne, uneven skin coloring or dry, rough sun-damaged skin to help promote a healthy glow. Recovery from this type of peel may be within hours to a few days but with little to no down time.

    •    A medium chemical peel gives your skin a smooth, fresh look. The outermost layer and the upper part of your middle skin layer are removed. This choice may be best if you have uneven or moderate skin discoloring, age spots, acne scarring or fine-to-moderate wrinkles. Recovery from this type of peel may take a week or more and require some down time.

    •    A deep chemical peel produces the most dramatic results. This chemical penetrates down to the lower middle layer of your skin. Recovery time is longer with a deep peel. This choice may be best if you have moderate lines and wrinkles, extensive sun-damaged skin, deep acne scars, blotchy skin, and/or precancerous growths called actinic keratosis. A deep chemical peel requires pretreatment for up to eight weeks.
