Laser Treatments: Everything You Need To Know
Cosmetic laser treatments can be beneficial to a variety of patient needs. If short term solutions aren’t satisfying your appearance-related concerns, our Aerolase laser could be your solution. It has been proven to be successful in treating pigmented lesions, acne, facial veins, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, melasma, ingrown or unwanted hair, psoriasis, scars, skin resurfacing, spider veins, warts, and anti-aging. Our Beauty & Aesthetics by Total Health laser patients are extremely satisfied with their results whether it be from a boost of confidence, or less time spent dealing with bothersome daily routines such as shaving or waxing and extensive skincare routines trying to combat acne.
Anti-Aging and Laser Treatments
Aging can be one of the biggest factors when it comes to dissatisfaction with one’s appearance, and unfortunately it is inevitable. Cosmetic laser treatments are a highly sought-after remedy because of its effectiveness in decreasing the appearance of aging with little to no risk and no recovery time. It is a safe option that does not hurt the skin and only takes a few sessions to start seeing amazing results.
With aging, comes less collagen production which results in all of the classic signs such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, sunspots, scars, sun-damage and more. By stimulating collagen production, our laser is able to treat not only those fine lines and wrinkles but also any blemishes, facial flaws, and loosened skin that have always been irritating. If there is a physical appearance concern that has been limiting your happiness or quality of life, Total Health’s laser treatments are something you should consider.
Our Aerolase laser works to rejuvenate the skin’s tone and texture enhancing the overall appearance of your skin and have you feeling yourself again. However, caring for your skin after treatments is essential in maintaining your results. Our Beauty & Aesthetics by Total Health providers can give you recommendations such as sunscreens, face washes, night creams, and more.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an extremely popular choice because it can make your daily routine easier. Whether you are looking to save time from shaving and/or waxing, trying to avoid bothersome razor bumps, or just looking to get rid of unwanted hair: our laser technology can help with all of that. It only takes about 4 to 6 sessions, about 4 weeks apart, to start experiencing permanent hair loss for most patients.
Andraia, a Total Health patient who has been receiving laser treatments for 5 months now, explains “I have tried everything for my facial hair, and these laser treatments have been the only treatment that I have actually seen real results from. It takes way less time than the other techniques I have tried in the past.”
It is not usually a painful process for most patients, although some discomfort during the procedure is to be expected. It is pretty common for patients to experience little pinches as the laser works to eliminate hair follicles. Overall, the slight discomfort that comes with laser hair removal is a temporary price to pay to avoid repetitive lifelong pain and/or annoyance from plucking or waxing.
According to Andraia, “The laser treatment itself is very tolerable. I would compare the feeling to rubber bands lightly hitting the face. Certain areas can be more sensitive and the closer the laser is to the face it can feel more uncomfortable. The sensations only last 10-15 minutes and compared to waxing each month, which is very painful for me, laser is a lot more tolerable.”
The Aerolase Laser
At Total Health, our Beauty & Aesthetics division uses Aerolase technology to provide our patients with a safe procedure for long lasting results. We use both Neoskin and Neoclear to satisfy your desired appearance goals. It is an FDA approved, noninvasive procedure that is not usually painful. For these reasons, patients love the effects of Aerolase and how simple treatment can be to help them look and feel their best.
“Your face is very sensitive, so it is important when dealing with facial hair, acne, sunspots, etc. that you are being treated with a safe laser that will not burn your skin or harm your face,” says Brielle Cook, Total Health’s lead Aesthetic RN.
Neoskin specifically works to rejuvenate and tighten skin. Any unwanted spots or redness on your face can be eliminated with Neoskin. It works by targeting water within the skin to generate new collagen production. It also targets melanin and hemoglobin to clear brown pigment, clear vascular lesions, and suppress inflammation. Regardless of your skin care routine, aging and unwanted blemishes are pretty much impossible to avoid. Neoskin can help bring back blemish-free and youthful skin with no recovery time needed.
Neoclear works to eliminate acne bacteria on the skin to reduce any acne or scarring and prevents future breakouts. This pain free procedure can offer you clear skin with no breakouts. The effects last for varying amounts of time depending on the patient’s skin, lifestyle, and aftercare regimen. Results from the procedure can be seen immediately to a few days after, and the treatment only takes about 10 to 30 minutes. For those who have been struggling with acne and other treatments such as medication that have not shown any improvement, Neoclear might finally be your solution.
