Getting rid of unwanted hair one zap at a time! [swipe for before & afters]

Laser hair removal can get rid of hair on any part of the body including underarms, chest, back, legs, bikini area and face. Most people find it time consuming and costly to maintain their unwanted hair with shaving, tweezing or waxing so they turn to laser hair removal for a more permanent fix. Seeing a board certified dermatologist like Dr. Lupo or Dr. Souyoul for laser hair removal ensures patients that they are receiving the finest care with state-of-the-art devices. The Lupo Center has special lasers designed for any skin type, so even dark-skinned patients can safely have permanent hair reduction as long as the skin is not tanned.

The number of treatment sessions for patients will vary depending on their hair’s response to treatment and the thickness of the hair. Thicker hair will require more treatments. Treatments are spaced out over several weeks to ensure the laser treats the hair in the active growth phase. Other hair that is not in the active phase will not be affected by the treatment. By treating every few weeks, we can target all the hair during the cycle of growth. Patients seeking reduction of hair may just need one or two treatments.

Millennials Are Turning To Botox Now to Prevent Lines and Wrinkles from Forming

 

Botox is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures, and it keeps getting more popular. When its wrinkle-reducing properties were first discovered, it became an instant favorite of aging women. As the stigma surrounding male cosmetic enhancement crumbled, Botox gained a new following. The procedure is now so popular among men that it has been dubbed “Brotox.” The latest group to take an interest in this treatment is young adults. A growing number of women and men in their thirties, and even in their twenties, are looking for ways to stop early signs of aging before it even starts.

Botox Cosmetic

When is the best time to begin Botox?
There is no universal answer to that question. According to the FDA, Botox Cosmetic is not recommended for patients under the age of 18. Aside from that, there are no hard-and-fast guidelines. The best time to start Botox is when you need it, which can vary greatly from one patient to another.

Every person is unique, and we all age differently. For example, if your free time during high school and college was largely spent outdoors without sun protection, you may start seeing fine lines in your early to mid-twenties. UV exposure hastens the aging of skin and people who don’t wear sunglasses tend to squint a lot, which can lead to muscle rigidity and resulting lines in the skin. Alternately, if you protect yourself from the sun and take good care of your skin, you can slow the aging process.

Prevention vs. correction

You can wait for aging to happen, and then take steps to reverse it. However, a much more effective strategy is to stop it early. In either case, Botox can be a great benefit. In fact, research suggests that it is most effective when treatment begins early. When facial lines first appear, they are dynamic wrinkles, meaning that they show up when you form an expression, and fade when you relax your face. Botox treatments begun at this stage can keep those muscles relaxed and supple, preventing deeply etched lines from forming. Although nothing can stop the aging process, a practical approach can greatly slow it, which delays the need for more invasive procedures.

Alternatives to Botox include Dysport and  Xeomin.
