It might be hard to believe, given the fact it’s still plenty cold and wintry outside, but summer will be here soon. So . . . about that bikini line. Why not make this the summer you finally say goodbye to shaving or waxing that never ends and never produces the results you really want? It can take just five to six short sessions of laser hair removal to can achieve a clean bikini line.
Most of us have at least one thing we’d love to change about our skin, especially as we get older. Thankfully, there are multiple non-surgical treatment options that can significantly improve most any skin condition. Laser skin treatments, in particular, are very versatile. Technology advances have fine-tuned laser and light therapies to the point where we can tailor tools and procedures specifically for each patient.
Which treatments or skin products should you choose to improve your skin’s health and appearance? What’s best for someone else isn’t necessarily best for you. At Rocky Mountain Laser Aesthetics we always schedule a personal consultation with new patients, so we can learn more about you and your skin before making recommendations. VISIA Complexion Analysis is a key part of that consultation.
Puffy, wrinkly or droopy lower eyelids can make you look older than your age, or chronically tired. Nobody wants that. Fortunately, we can correct these symptoms, often without surgery. There are treatments for upper eyelids, too, and these can be performed at the same time or separately from lower eyelid treatments. In this article we’ll focus on your under-eye options.
How lucky we are to live in a time when there are so many ways to improve our skin’s appearance. Especially non-surgical options such as Botox, the most-requested minimally-invasive skin treatment.
Here at Raval Facial Aesthetics, prospective patients often ask about anesthesia. If you’re considering nose or facelift surgery, it’s important to know that not all plastic surgeons approach anesthesia the same way. We recommend you ask these 5 questions.
If you’re considering a surgical change to your nose, it’s important to learn what rhinoplasty can and cannot do for you. It helps to understand what the surgery itself involves.

For many of us, acne scars are one of life’s great frustrations. Acne can leave scars underneath your skin and leave the surface looking uneven and even pitted. Medical science has tried for decades to devise methods to improve the appearance of acne scars, with limited success. Now, though, platelet-rich fibrin matrix, or PRFM, is proving to be a valuable option for many patients.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Raval has received yet another professional award – Top Doctor designation on RealSelf. Fewer than 10% of doctors who participate in the RealSelf doctor community ever achieve Top Doctor status.

On the site, anyone can post specific diagnostic or treatment questions and receive answers from appropriately-experienced medical professionals. Site visitors can learn from other people’s questions and answers and read detailed accounts of their personal experiences, posted by actual patients.
If you’re like most people, cost is one of the factors you consider when deciding whether to have surgery or some type of cosmetic enhancement procedure. Will your health insurance help pay?
Each insurance company has its own set of policies regarding what is or isn’t covered. And, of course, individual coverage can vary widely, too. If you have non-traditional insurance such as a health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account, that may also affect your coverage options.
