The Many Benefits of FotoFacial

The cosmetic industry is one that is driven by innovation and creativity. As such, there are always new and innovative methods and techniques of helping clients beautify themselves and look their best. For instance, the Fotofacial is a relatively new method that many are raving about.  With that in mind, the following is a closer look at the Fotofacial and its various benefits.

What is a Fotofacial?

For those who are yet unfamiliar, a Fotofacial is a cosmetic treatment used to rejuvenate the face. Combining the benefits of two technologies: IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and RF (radiofrequency), a Fotofacial is meant to treat signs of aging and UV damage. With the help of a hand-held device, these technologies work together to provide clients with various outstanding benefits.

Fotofacial Benefits

Now that you know more about what a Fotofacial is and what it entails let’s take a look at some of the benefits of having this procedure. Some of them are:

  • Sun Damage: As mentioned, the Fotofacial is an excellent method of reducing damage caused by UV rays. This is because we are all exposed to the sun’s rays on a regular basis, which can cause damage over time. Getting a Fotofacial is one of the best ways to reduce this damage.
  • Stubborn Acne Damage: Additionally, some people have stubborn acne that is severe and can last for many years. This can result in damage such as scars and other blemishes that do not quickly fade. Luckily, a Fotofacial is one method of reducing this damage.
  • Cost-Effective: Another major benefit of getting Fotofacials is that they are very cost-effective when compared to other methods. This makes them a go-to treatment for people from all walks of life.
  • Premature Aging Prevention: Moreover, although we all age as we get older, some of us age faster than others. This can be due to things such as a poor diet, excessive sun damage, medication, and much more. However, Fotofacials are one method of treating this damage and reducing the facial signs and symptoms.

Overall, Fotofacials are an excellent method of addressing sun damage, stubborn acne damage, premature aging, and much more. This cost-effective method is heralded by people from all walks of life who value beauty and a clear, bright complexion. While it may not be perfect for everyone, there are plenty of people who stand to benefit from investing in Fotofacials. Those who are interested should schedule a consultation to find out whether or not they are a good candidate for the procedure.

 

Why You Need Laser Hair Removal Today!

If you’re tired of shaving and waxing, there’s a better way! Laser hair removal can help you get rid of that unwanted hair for good. And while it’s true that laser hair removal services have been around for decades, the reality is that the latest advancements and innovations in laser hair removal have made this a more affordable and accessible option than ever before.

So, what are you waiting for?

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

There are many advantages of choosing laser hair removal over other common forms of hair removal. Unlike shaving and waxing, you don’t have to worry about your hair growing back time and time again. That’s because after a few laser hair removal treatments, hair follicles are completely destroyed; this prevents hair from being able to grow back. As a result, you get to enjoy smooth skin while saving yourself the time and hassle of regular shaving and waxing.

Unlike waxing and shaving, laser hair removal is also gentler on the skin. That’s because laser technology focuses on destroying hair follicles with minimal irritation to the surrounding skin.

And because laser hair removal completely destroys hair follicles from the root, you’ll never have to worry about things like ingrown hairs or razor burn again. Instead, you’ll be able to enjoy smooth and beautiful-looking skin.

Finally, laser hair removal is safe on just about every part of the body. Whether you’re looking to permanently get rid of hair on your underarms, upper lip, bikini line, or anywhere else, you can trust laser hair removal to get it done.

What to Expect From Laser Hair Removal

At a laser hair removal appointment, the targeted area will be treated using lasers that emit short but powerful bursts of heat. This heat kills off the root and follicle of the hair, thus preventing it from growing back. While most people don’t experience notable discomfort during laser hair removal, those with more sensitive skin may wish to have a topical anesthetic applied before treatment.

Most people will get the best results after 2-6 treatment sessions, at which point the entire treatment area should be hair-free with no chance of hair growing back. After each session, it is recommended that you protect the treated area from sun exposure, as the skin may be more sensitive than usual. It is also a good idea to avoid using any new skincare products on the treatment area for a few days.

Contour Your Body with Vanquish!

Slimming down can be challenging. If diet and exercise haven’t produced the results you want, you may benefit from non-invasive contouring procedures like Vanquish. This body contouring technique is ideal for shaping the thighs, abdomen, and other areas of the body. Before you seek this treatment, it’s essential to learn more about it and how it can help you get the body you always wanted.

Does It Work?

Many people fear procedures like Vanquish can’t possibly produce the results promised. After all, it seems too easy to be true. Vanquish is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to target specific areas, eliminating fat deposits and shaping the body. Scientific studies have revealed this procedure removes more than 29 percent of an individual’s body fat. Other studies show the Vanquish offers the long-lasting results individuals need with noticeable improvements that last four years or more.

What Areas Does It Work For?

Vanquish offers incredible versatility and can be used to contour many parts of the body as desired. Most individuals rely on this procedure to eliminate fat from their flanks, thighs, and abdomen, but these aren’t the only areas you can target. It’s also effective for the back and arms. Your medical professional will discuss your goals and help you determine if this treatment will produce the results you want.

How Does Vanquish Work?

Vanquish is a state-of-the-art technology proven effective for contouring the body and removing unwanted fat. How does it work? You won’t require surgery to sculpt your body when you choose Vanquish. This non-invasive procedure doesn’t require incisions. Instead, the device targets specific areas of the body, melting the fat away without even touching your skin. Vanquish uses radiofrequency energy to heat the body. The surface of your skin will reach temperatures of 101 degrees Fahrenheit, while the fat cells reach temperatures up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. The high heat applied kills off the fat cells, so they break down. Your lymphatic system then dispels the dead cells, slimming and contouring your body into the shape you want.

What to Expect

When you make an appointment for Vanquish, you need to know what to expect from the process. Because it’s a non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime. You can resume your regular activities as soon as you leave the clinic. In addition, you can expect natural results that look like you’ve simply lost weight in all the right places to look your best. Before your appointment, we recommend eating a small meal and drinking plenty of water. We will instruct you to lie down on the table to target the areas you want to target. You may feel a warming sensation, but the procedure itself isn’t painful or uncomfortable. Each treatment takes about 30 to 45 minutes from start to finish. Keep in mind you may need several treatment sessions to achieve the final results, but you will see a visible improvement after your first appointment. The total number of treatments required varies depending on the results you want and your current state.

Microneedling: Your Ticket to A Clearer Complexion!

The forward match of progress within the beauty and wellness industry is almost unending. Every single day, beauty specialists come up with new techniques to address age-old issues. From reversing signs of aging to addressing uneven skin tone, microneedling services are becoming increasingly popular within the beauty world.

If you are looking to improve your skin while addressing your self-confidence, you might be interested in signing up for a microneedling session at the Clearskin Institute of Laser Aesthetics!

What Is Microneedling?

First and foremost, we need to understand what microneedling actually is. Microneedling, also known as micro-needling or collagen induction therapy, revolves around the use of small needles as they penetrate our skin. These needles create something known as micro-injuries which are integral for the production of collagen synthesis. Collagen synthesis causes the body to introduce new elastin and collagen as the ‘wound’ is treated.

The end of a microneedling session can manifest results just as effective as laser therapy!

Reduce Signs of Aging

The primary reason that most people pursue microneedling services revolves around anti-aging. Slowing down some of the most common signs of aging can help our skin to look and feel better. Microneedling is particularly effective at increasing collagen levels and elastin, two integral facets to improving skin tone and texture.

Collagen comprises nearly 35% of your body’s total protein content, so it is important to pay attention to its continued development. Increasing your collagen can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and other fine lines.

What’s more, microneedling can help to address those problematic stretch marks that bother so many people. Microneedling for stretch marks and other skin regeneration practices can take multiple sessions for improvement to become visible.

Address Uneven Skin Tone

As a cosmetic procedure, microneedling is unrivaled. Reducing uneven skin tone is particularly difficult, so that means people need a service that works. Microneedling has been found effective in the regulation of our melanin levels. This means that micro-needling can be used to treat dark spots, rosacea, melasma, and age spots.

Addressing uneven skin tone can require patience and dedication. Give yourself time for micro-needling to prove effective for particularly problematic dark spots.

Shrink Pores For Clearer Skin

Finally, microneedling is a fantastic way to tighten your skin while addressing breakouts and other blemishes. Microneedling can help to shrink pores that have become particularly notable, including those on our forehead, cheeks, and nose.

Microneedling will stimulate our collagen while shrinking pores, thus improving our overall appearance. For individuals struggling with oily or combination skin, microneedling can provide a tangible improvement to your skincare routine.
