The general opinion is that laser hair removal is “permanent reduction” of hair. Hair growth is reduced by 90% but people do need touch up treatments from 1-2 times a year after the initial set of treatments.
Area should be shaved as close as possible, hours before treatment, so that laser can target the most energy towards the hair follicle. After the treatment with 3 to 5 weeks you experience shedding of hair exfoliate the skin and the time for the second session is coming closer.
Dermatologists are doctors that
have received a four (4) year medical degree
and at least one additional year of general medical
training (formerly termed internship) and three
years of skin specialization.
Dermatologists treat skin cancers,
moles, warts, fungal infections, eczema, psoriasis,
acne, dry skin, contact dermatitis, and many
other skin conditions. They also do cosmetic
procedures like collagen injections, botox injections,
lasers, and peels.
Dermatologists efficiently make
medical diagnoses, which can be related to the
skin only or may be a sign of other organ system
involvement. Dermatologists treat skin cancers
and malignant melanomas in the office setting.
Dermatologists emphasize prevention and education
to their patients as well as instruction on self-examination
of the skin. Dermatologists of Laser Inn Aesthetic
Surgery Centre are on the cutting edge of various
cosmetic procedures and products that will help
you look and feel your best.
The causes of acne are linked to
the changes that take place as young people mature
from childhood to adolescence (puberty). The
hormones that cause physical maturation also
cause the sebaceous (oil) glands of the skin
to produce more sebum (oil). The hormones with
the greatest effect on sebaceous glands are androgens
(male hormones), which are present in females
as well as males, but in higher amounts in males.
Sebaceous glands are found together with a hair
shaft in a unit called a sebaceous follicle.
During puberty, the cells of the skin that line
the follicle begin to shed more rapidly. In people
who develop acne, cells shed and stick together
more so than in people who do not develop acne.
When cells mix with the increased amount of sebum
being produced, they can plug the opening of
the follicle. Meanwhile, the sebaceous glands
continue to produce sebum, and the follicle swells
up with sebum.
In addition, a normal skin bacteria called P.
acnes, begins to multiply rapidly in the clogged
hair follicle. In the process, these bacteria
produce irritating substances that can cause
inflammation. Sometimes, the wall of the follicle
bursts, spreading inflammation to the surrounding
skin. This is the process by which acne lesions,
from blackheads to pimples to nodules, are formed.
Many people still believe that
acne is caused by dirty skin. The truth is, washing
alone will not clear up or prevent acne. Washing
does, however, help remove excess surface oils
and dead skin cells. Many people use all kinds
of products, including alcohol-based cleansers,
and scrub vigorously, only to irritate the skin
further and worsen their acne. Washing the skin
twice a day gently with water and a mild soap
is usually all that is required. However, acne
is actually caused by a variety of biologic factors
that are beyond the control of washing. For that
reason, you should use appropriate acne treatments
for the acne.
By removing the top layer of the
skin, microdermabration diminishes or even removes
superficial red marks. Deeper red marks require
a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical
peel or laser skin resurfacing.
Micro derma abrasion is safe for
young women (and men) of all skin types but most
doctors recommend it for girls aged 14 and older,
mainly because they want to make sure that all
major hormonal changes are over and the results
of the procedure are as good as they can be.
Stretch marks appear on your skin
as uneven skin tone and texture. By exfoliating
the outermost layer of the skin, microdermibration
kit evens out skin tone and texture, thus reducing
or totally removing stretchmarks.
Home microderma tools should not
be used on your eye-lids even if it's especially
formulated as a face microdermabrasia cream.
Using a face microabrasion cream on your eye
lids may result in irritation or scarring (the
lids are too thin and can easily be damaged).
Surgeon-performed microabrasion is not suitable
for use on eye lids either.
This procedure exfoliates the
top layer of skin which consists of dead skin
cells. Microdermabasion set stimulates collagen
production, essential to healthy skin and also
removes blotchy skin texture and tone.
The right candidate for microdermabrasian
is anyone over 14 who wants to get rid of superficial
acne scars, blotchy skin, large pores, age or
sun spots, fine wrinkles or uneven skin tone
and texture. All skin types and colors can be
treated with microdermabrasions. But if you are
pregnant, nursing or suffering from a chronic
skin disease, or have been on Accutane or had
laser surgery recently, consult with a specialist
before having this treatment.
Microdermabasion kit works on
hyperpigmentation. The micro-crystal flow abrades
the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented
skin cells are stuck. Several office microderm
abrasions are required to even out skin tone
and get rid of hyperpigmentation.
According to thousands of online
testimonials, clinic microderm is good on superficial
skin imperfections. But like with most non-surgical
procedures, the results depend on your medical
condition, your body's ability to recover and
on who performs the procedure on you. Most patients
who have tried micro derma abrasion say the procedure
was effective in reducing fine lines, age spots,
enlarged pores, acne scars, red marks, stretch
marks and dull skin More severe skin imperfections
cannot be improved with this non-invasive technique,
because it only sandblasts the top layer of the
skin, not being able to reach deeper layers of
By removing the top layer of skin,
micro abrasion evens out skin texture and helps
improve superficial pimple scars. Deeper pimple
scarring needs more invasive non-surgical techniques,
like deep chemical peeling or laser facial resurfacing.
