Medical Aesthetics – Rejuvenate for the New Year
The new year is almost here and people often view it as an opportunity for a fresh start. Whether it’s a healthier diet, a new workout plan or finally losing that last five pounds, many of us think of the new year as the perfect time to rejuvenate ourselves. Cutting calories and hitting the gym are not the only options when it comes to personal rejuvenation. There are medical aesthetics which can provide personal improvements that will impact your appearance. Not only will you look better, you will feel better as well resulting in a positive self-image and a boost in self-confidence.
PicoSure Focus Skin Rejuvenation
This non-invasive medical aesthetic treatment is designed to reduce or eliminate skin blemishes. Effective on many different skin types, PicoSure Focus stimulates increased production of collagen which works to improve the overall appearance of the skin.
What makes the Picosure Focus laser treatment different is its incredible speed, PicoSure technology and Focus Lens Array. All of this allows the light energy to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers, helping you achieve clearer, brighter and younger looking skin.
Treatments typically take 10 -15 minutes with virtually no down time, just a few hours of minor redness in the treated area. There is also a PicoSure laser treatment for effective tattoo removal.
Have you been struggling with a stubborn area of fat that no matter amount of diet or exercise, you can’t get rid of it? You may not have considered medical aesthetics but Coolsculpting could be the solution. Using controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat, CoolSculpting reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas.
The treated fat cells die and are naturally eliminated by the body. The elimination of these fat cells results in less fat deposits in the area of treatment, creating a more sculpted appearance. While this provides excellent results for spotty areas of fat and creates a more sculpted and toned physique, CoolSculpting is not meant for significant weight loss.
Treatment time can vary depending on your individualized plan but is typically one hour. There is little or no downtime. Results may begin to appear as early as 3 weeks after treatment and optimum results will show about 3 months after treatment. There is also the CoolSculpting Mini for the treatment of a double chin.
Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair removal can be a hassle. Laser hair removal can be a desirable alternative to shaving and waxing, offering a permanent solution to unwanted hair. Vectus laser treatments are a great option. These treatments can effectively reduce hair growth on various areas of the body such as the back, arms, chest, legs, underarms, face, and bikini area.
The Vectus Laser is a diode laser specifically designed for laser hair removal. It is integrated with Skintel, a melanin or pigment reader, which helps determine the safest but most powerful laser settings to achieve maximal results without the risk of adverse reactions. This allows the laser to effectively target the root of the hair on all skin and hair types for optimal results.
Because hair grows in three cycles, multiple treatments are required, typically 4-6 treatments, to produce optimum results. This can vary depending on hair color and texture, skin color, the area to be treated and the amount of unwanted hair. It is usually recommended to wait 4-6 weeks in between treatments.
