How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Posted by Amy Raval on Jul 8, 2021 10:33:05 AM

Many people have unwanted hair somewhere. It might be facial hair or body hair. It might be just a bit of hair restricted to a small area – say, your nose or the tops of your toes. Or it might be a lot of hair – on your back and shoulders, for example. We spend a tremendous amount of time, effort, and money to get rid of unwanted hair.

We shave, we tweeze, we wax (ow!), we smear on depilatory creams. These things can get the job done, but only as a temporary solution. You have to repeat them to maintain the hairless, smooth skin you want. And some parts of your body are not exactly convenient for DIY hair removal. So, if you’re looking for long-term results, these methods don’t work. But there’s good news: laser hair removal does.  

Here’s how.

Laser Skin Treatment for Enlarged Pores

Posted by Amy Raval on Apr 16, 2020 5:54:00 PM

What Are Pores? Why Are Mine So BIG?

Let’s talk pores. First of all, what are pores? The skin is the largest human organ and it’s covered with millions of pores that allow the skin to “breathe.” In each pore is a tiny hair (except on the palms of the hands and the bottoms of the feet). Each pore on the face, back, chest, and groin contains a hair follicle with a gland inside it, called the sebaceous gland, which produces oil or sebum. When this gland releases, the sebum rises to the top and collects in the pore. Hormones play a large role in how and when the sebaceous gland releases.

Laser Treatments for Wrinkles

Posted by Amy Raval on Apr 14, 2020 5:10:00 PM

It’s the kind of thing that will stop you in your tracks as you casually pass by a mirror. Is that a wrinkle?! We’ve all been there and we’ve all lamented the unavoidable passage of time and pull of gravity. Our skin gets a little looser, a bit more droopy. Why, oh why does this happen? Over time, our skin loses its elasticity and produces less collagen. This means we start to see hollows in our cheeks and under our eyes. We start to miss our plump, tight skin and soon enough, we can map out every single wrinkle that has snaked its way across our face. Luckily for us, we live in a time that has perfected Laser Skin Resurfacing to help us face these annoyances head on.

Laser Resurfacing Under the Eyes

Posted by Amy Raval on Apr 1, 2020 5:04:25 PM

As we get older and start to notice changes in our skin, we are most likely to notice the wrinkles around our eyes first. This skin is the most delicate of all the body and will quickly show signs of ageing and fatigue. There are fewer collagen and elastin fibers around the eye making it more prone to sagging and wrinkling. On top of its delicate nature, the skin around our eyes can show unique conditions such as puffiness, dark circles, milia, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. This is why there is such a massive market for under eye creams and treatments. If you have been throwing your money at these products without real results, you may be considering Laser Skin Resurfacing. Let’s take a look at the procedure and common outcomes as well as risks and recovery times.

Can People with Sensitive Skin Still Have Laser Skin Treatments?

Posted by Amy Raval on Feb 24, 2020 2:22:09 PM

Laser treatment stands out as an effective option for a wide array of skin issues, from hyperpigmentation and wrinkles to scarring, birthmarks, and certain veins. While it is appropriate for most skin types, those of you with sensitive skin may be wondering if laser treatment is right for you.

If you’re starting out with sensitive skin or eczema, both of which compromise your skin’s barrier function, you may experience more sensitivity than that which is typical of a patient with non-sensitive skin.

The good news is that with the right laser, pre- and post-care, and provider, many people with sensitive skin can benefit from well-executed laser skin treatment.
