What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser stands for Light Amplification of Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Laser hair removal is the application of intense wavelength pulse of light to achieve permanent reduction of unwanted hair. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the energy produced by the laser. The energy produced by the laser destroys the hair follicle and prevents the hair from regenerating. Laser hair reduction is only able to permanently destroy the follicle if it is in the active growth stage. You will need several laser hair removal treatments on each area. For best results, the hair follicle must be darker than the skin to be effectively treated.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
During laser hair removal treatments, most clients will experience little to No Pain and a similar feel of a hot stone massage, a warming sensation especially of larger areas like the back and legs. Discomfort will vary from person to person because of skin tone, thickness of hair follicle and your personal level of pain tolerance. For highly sensitive areas, some feel more of a quick pinching sensation, but don't find it too painful. Laser hair removal is extremely tolerable for almost everyone especially compared to waxing, threading and tweezing.
How Permanent Is Laser Hair Removal?
There is no hair removal method (including laser) which can guarantee "permanent hair removal". The most accurate description of the results after laser treatment is "laser hair reduction". Which can lead to long-term results depending on the area and individual's limitations. Results can vary because of several reasons including hair color, coarseness, skin tone as well as hormonal changes and other genetic considerations. Some clients will need additional treatments to achieve their desired results because of these reasons.
Do I Need to Shave Before Laser Hair Removal?
YES! Please have a close shave on the treatment area. The area should be shaved as closely as possible so that laser can concentrate the energy on the hair follicle and not waste energy on the part of the hair above the skin's surface. This will provide a better treatment and some clients also find that their treatment area is less sensitive during laser hair removal. You can shave every day. Contrary to popular belief, shaving does not make hair grow back thicker, faster, darker or more profusely. So go ahead and shave before the treatment and between treatments! Please refrain from any hair removal method that removes the entire hair follicle such as wax, tweeze, thread, sugar, use depilate cream, or lighten hair follicles during laser hair removal. It will reduce treatment effectiveness. You must wait four weeks before receiving a laser hair removal treatment if you have used one the prior methods.
Why Will I Need More than One Treatment?
Hair has three cycles of growth. The phases Anagen (growing), Catagen (regression) and Telogen (resting) are not growing together. The laser can only destroy the hair follicles in their active growth stage. Because of this, multiple treatments are needed so that each follicle can have a laser treatment in the active growth phase. On average 6-8 treatments are needed to achieve desired results for most individuals. However within the first sessions results are very noticeable with fine hair and less regrowth. Results will vary per client per area.
When Will I See Results?
Immediately. The treatment areas have been destroyed and will no longer grow. They will fall out naturally between 3-21 days after treatment. It is recommended that you shave the hairs when they begin to reach the surface. Shaving will help exfoliate the skin helping the hair follicles fall out faster.

So, What Exactly Is Micro Needling?
Also referred to as dermarolling, micro needling this is a treatment that can be done at home, by an aesthetician, or in your dermatologist's office. It gets its name from the tool used, a dermaroller, which looks a bit like a miniature paint roller, except it's covered with tiny needles. Before you freak out, know that the needles on the at-home devices shouldn't be painful, since they're much smaller than those used in a derm's office. (But more on that later.) Micro-needling has been around since the early 2000s, and works on a similar principle as laser treatments. When rolled over the skin, the dermaroller does two things. First, it allows for better penetration of products, thanks to tiny pinpricks that work almost like canals, allowing your products — often serums, since they're the most viscous — to reach deeper into the skin. Second, it creates micro-injuries, which tell your brain to kick into repair mode. This prompts your body to send collagen to the epidermis, which, as you probably already know, is an important building block of healthy, radiant skin. More collagen, better skin.
Smiles Are Valuable
Statistics reveal that we place a high value on our smiles. According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey:
Virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset. 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex.
Three-quarters (74%) of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person's chance for career success.
And when respondents were asked, "What would you like to improve most about your smile?"
The most common response was: Whiter & brighter teeth. If you are not happy with your smile, teeth whitening may be a good first step.
Causes of Tooth Discoloration
Deciduous (baby) teeth are typically whiter than the adult teeth that appear later. As we age,
Our adult teeth often become darker, yellower, or stained. This is partly why white teeth make people appear more youthful.
Just as there are a number of ways to lighten or brighten teeth,
There are also several different ways for teeth to become discolored. The main causes of darkened teeth are genetics, antibiotics, and certain foods, plus teeth tend to darken as we age. Internal tooth discoloration is caused by changes in the enamel of the tooth and the dentin. The main causes of internal tooth discoloration are exposure to high levels of fluoride, tetracycline, use of antibiotics as a child, developmental disorders, tooth decay, restorations, root canal issues, and trauma.
External tooth discoloration is caused by factors outside the body, mainly foods and tobacco.
The main causes of external tooth yellowing are smoking, foods with tannins, coffee, tea, carrots, oranges, and other foods.
Types of Teeth Whitening
There are various ways to whiten your teeth, but the two most common are in-office treatment and the do-it-yourself approach, with over the counter products.
Microdermabrasion, also known as Microderm, is a cosmetic procedure used to remove the top layer of sun-damaged and dead skin cells. Leaving behind a healthier, younger you. Diamond Microdermabrasion is great for exfoliating the outer-most layer of your skin. This is a painless treatment that exfoliates the skin with diamond bids without any damage to the skin.Microdermabrasion is a great technique with immediate results and with little to no downtime.
Top Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Eases age spots
Microderm is like giving your skin cells a pep talk, stimulating new cells to replace the damaged ones.
Improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles
Regardless of your age, exposing your skin to UV rays is like begging lines and wrinkles to appear on your face. However, microderm can step in and soften those creases and turn back the clock on aging.
Helps prevent acne
Microderm opens up clogged pores that lead to acne, helping to get rid of the junk and leaving cleaner, smoother skin behind.
Improves existing acne scars
Softening the top layer of your skin with microdermabrasion can smooth very superficial acne scars by removing the skin's dead cells on the surface of your skin and improving the smoothness and texture.
Rejuvenates sun damaged skin
The sun can do a number on your skin, causing sun spots, wrinkles and enlarge pores.With a few microdermabrasion sessions you can freshen up your skin in no time.
Helps makeup look smoother
By ridding your complexion of dead skin cells and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, microdermabrasion lets your makeup glide on for a flawless finish.
