Hair reducing lasers work by interacting with the pigment in the hair to produce heat. A very intense beam of light is passed through the skin at the hair root. The dark hair becomes very hot and destroys the cells that produce the hair. If the light is intense enough, the hair follicle is damaged to an extent where it can no longer produce hair at all. Care for 48 hours after treatment.
Some redness and swelling is expected in the area for a few hours post treatment:
All of us have, at some point of time had felt the urge to get inked. Be it doodling religious chants or any message, we all have the parts of body in our mind where well get ourselves inked at least once in life. Although getting a tattoo is an easy task, removing it is a bit tough on the body.
Advanced laser technologies have made the tattoo removal process a lot easier. You will find that various robust removal methods have now transformed the ordeal into just another less-painful medical appointment where you can bloodlessly purge that ink from your body.
Removing tattoos using the laser method is the best and the most safe technique to get rid of that tattoo which you once had put on in rage. Via other removal methods you up the ante of being exposed to health risks which is not the case with laser method. Though laser technique is expensive than others but the bloodless elimination and efficacy speak for its cost. With lasers you can get rid of bigger, stronger, and complicated tattoos without much pain.
The mechanism of laser method entails the use of a targeted-high intensity light beam that breaks down the pigmentation or pigment colours making up the ink and the result is that a scar-free tattoo removal process ensues. The treatment differs on the basis of the colour of your tattoo. Black colour gets removed easily as it absorbs wavelengths of all lasers and thus it calls for its ease. Other colours are removed via selected lasers depending on the colour or pigment they are able to treat. It may take you more than one session for removing tattoo depending on the size and colour of it. Usually the process will stretch over a period of 8-10 weeks.
The process of laser removal of tattoo is a two-pronged method: Active and Passive. The passive method is a comparatively cheap process and only partially lightens your tattoo. Do some research on the difference between active and passive removal methods and do not get filched of a complete elimination in the name of using a cheaper alternative as passive methods only work partially.
What is skin rejuvenation and resurfacing?
Sun, skin disorders, aging and even heredity can all contribute to skin irregularities on the face and elsewhere on the body. These include textural irregularities like wrinkles and acne scars, pigmentation changes like freckles, sunspots or visible blood vessels. In addition, skin may lose tone, feel less firm and lose the healthy glow that is evident in younger skin.
Different treatment modalities are available to treat the different aspects of skin damage.
Laser resurfacing, mechanical resurfacing, chemical peels and injectable products can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the entire face or those that develop in specific regions of the face, such as the upper lip and around the eyes. These treatments can also be used to address pigmentation disorders, such as sun and age spots, and they can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars or other skin conditions.
The specific type of treatment that will best address your concerns are determined after a consultation , Most skin treatments require a series of treatments and a multi-modality approach to achieving excellent results. Most importantly, the patient must be committed to protecting his or her skin going forward so that the results achieved will be longer lasting.
Acne scars are the result of inflammation within the dermal layer of skin brought on by acne and are estimated to affect 95% of people with acne vulgaris. The scar is created by an abnormal form of healing following this dermal inflammation. Scarring is most likely to occur with severe nodulocysticacne, but may occur with any form of acne vulgaris. Acne scars are classified based on whether the abnormal healing response following dermal inflammation leads to excess collagen deposition or collagen loss at the site of the acne lesion.
When the skin does not heal properly after an acne breakout, it leads to scars. If you suffer from consistent nodular and cystic acne lesions, you are at a very high risk of developing permanent acne scarring. This is particularly true when a region is affected by overlapping acne outbreaks, with no opportunity to completely heal in-between.
Depressed acne scars: These are the most common type of scars that results from acne. Depressed acne scars can be of three types Rolling scars, Boxcar scars and Icepick scars.
Laser Hair Therapy (LHT) is a non-surgical, scientific approach in the cosmetic treatment of hair loss, thinning hair, and scalp problems. LHT has been tested for effectiveness and safety for over 30 years all around the world. Although we sell and offer Cosmetic lasers, several Medical devices have now cleared the US FDA.
The LHT non-surgical cosmetic treatments utilize a device containing 110-185 therapeutic soft low light level lasers. Laser hair growth treatment for men and women delivers light energy directly from 110-185 laser diodes covering your head. LHT functions on the same scientific principle, as that of photo-bio-stimulation; laser light stimulates cell metabolism and helps damaged cells to repair themselves.
The hair growth cycle consists of three phases:
Growth (anagen phase), Resting (telogen phase) and Shedding (catagen phase). Hair loss in androgenetic alopecia depends on a testosterone derivative in the skin, dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Low level laser therapy is believed to increase blood flow in the scalp and stimulate metabolism in catagen or telogen follicles, resulting in the production of anagen hair. In theory:
A photofacial (foto facial) is a skin treatment that uses a light-based technology to boost collagen, lighten brown spots, and diminish broken capillaries. Since this high-tech treatment requires specific equipment to perform, you are more likely to find it offered at medical spas, specialized resorts, and skin care centers than at a holistic spa or general massage therapist.
While photofacials are great for a quick (yet moderately expensive) way to clear up acne or diminish certain blemishes, freckles, or wrinkles at your spa, you might want to avoid this treatment if you are traveling to a sunny destination. Although there is relatively little recovery time associated with getting this type of treatment, exposure to UV rays can agitate your sensitive skin.
The two types of photofacials available are the Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL) and the Light-Emitting Diode (LED) treatments; however, in order to get the results you hope to achieve, its important to understand the difference between these facial rejuvenation technologies before you book an appointment. Your best bet for minor skin problems is to book an LED (often referred to as a Non-IPL) treatment, and for more serious conditions, you will want to speak with an esthetician about developing a skin care routine and reserving an appointment with a licensed IPL technician.
LED photofacials are a good choice for people who want to boost collagen or treat acne, and medical research in the field has proven that this type of treatment can restore facial tissue. While the results wont be as dramatic as plastic surgery, its a gentler, more natural, and less expensive way to rejuvenate and tighten aging skin.
