Yes, psoriasis sufferers can have instant relief with our photo skin rejuvenation therapy where other treatments have produced no affects. Psoriasis is when your skin cells ex foliate 7 times faster than average. The ex foliated cells can not turn over and keep up to this rapid pace. The result is redness, flaking and irritated skin. A single light therapy session can being much relief and have helped many.
--Yes, electrolysis will help because it will coagulate the hair growing tissue to prevent further growth. However, your in grown's can be cured more easily with our DermaLase laser as this technology will also cure problems with recurring in grown's in a much easier fashion because our DermaLase can treat as well as rejuvenate and heal the irritated surface without ever having to have the hair at the surface. Results are noticeable immediately! Once the area has been treated with our hair removal skin irritation and hyper pigmentation as well as boils or acne are able to begin healing immediately. Healing occurs as this treatment destroys the bacteria incubated within the follicle as well as coagulate the follicle and destroys the hair structure which is the cause of your painful boils and ongoing irritation.
" No, No " info commercials are interesting and I often get asked about these in home devices that claim permanent results. "No No" hair removal devices will slow the growth according to the manufacturer. Repeated use will inhibit the growth, yet it is not a permanent solution. Women spend approximately 60 hours a year shaving unwanted hair growth from their bodies. Even when you buy a device to use at home like "No No" you're still dealing with the unwanted growth, day after day. Each year people spend millions on razors and other devices that make promises, only to be disappointed. Permanent hair removal is best dealt with by a professional.
The most popular laser technology on the market today is the "Diode" , "Alexandrite", "Yag" and "Ruby" lasers. Although these work well for high contrast areas such as white skin and dark growth. They don't work as well for dark skins, red heads and lighter brown shades. Studies show that not only is our DermaLase laser gentle, it is also more successful at seeing various shades of pigment. This is helpful in eliminating unwanted growth in a relatively painless manner. The reason our light system is successful is largely due to the wider wave length range and varying width and number of pulses delivered to meet your specific needs. Also, it is important to mention that millions have been safely treated over and over with Intense Pulse Light such as our system and have had no scarring or permanent changes in their pigment. Not only is this true, the success rate of permanency is between 80% - 90% because of the wider range of 400 - 1200 nano meters and varying length and number of pulses tailored for your skin type and hair colour.
Some patients report that finer hairs treated with laser become more prominent and more numerous. This has not been conclusive. However, a skilled technician will have enough knowledge to prevent this from occurring. This can be discussed in a private consultation. Related discussions have begun at industry conferences. It is a rare occurrence which happens only when over treating fine hair, especially on women’s faces. This can be prevented by a skilled technician that understand growth cycles and how to prevent over treating a patient. If you have a small percentage of growth remaining following your laser sessions, it is recommended that you eliminate these with electrolysis and only by a skilled professional.
Yes, electrolysis and thermolysis has been in practice for over 100 years ever since it was invented in France. Even pregnant women can have electrolysis done safely. Laser technology has been in practice approximately 20 years. Lasers that use an intense high beam are a greater risk to the patient as this can cause serious burns and scarring. With our laser as stated it has a wide wave length range and millions have been treated safely without scarring because the wider range of light is much more gentle than laser technology and will achieve permanent reduction at the same rate as other technology on the market. With DermaLase most patients will notice a 50% reduction within 1 to 2 treatments and this will progress with each treatment.
I believe both modalities in the long run come out to similar cost. The difference with introducing laser and electrolysis together is in the time and frequency of your visits. Much less time in the studio and longer intervals in between visits and permanent results equals happy customers.
A skilled professional will never work beyond what you can comfortably tolerate. Details will be discussed in a professional consultation.
Of course each person has individual needs and areas of concern. Whether you are a good candidate for laser will be evaluated in a complimentary consultation. Lower contrast surfaces such as the case with blondes, red heads and white growth although difficult to treat are also successfully eliminated and approached using a technique specifically tailored to your needs.
Actually all methods of removal can leave potential scars especially if you are not caring for your skin during your treatment program. Your hair removal specialist will discuss ways in which it is recommended that you care for your skin to prevent reactions and flare ups after electrolysis. In some cases, an area that has been subject to several treatments has been reported to have hyper pigmentation or hypo pigmentation. A skilled technician will be competent in selecting a parameter for your specific skin type for the safest most effective permanent result.
Absolutely not! With electrolysis the hair only has to be barely coming through the surface to be treated. And laser treatments are done when the hair is still germinating and not visible for the most part. Nobody ever has to see it or know your having it done.
Electrolysis is truly the only method that will ever achieve 100% permanent hair removal. Whether the hair is dark and strong or vellus soft growth is not an issue and can be resolved with permanent results. Soft growth responds quickly to electrolysis and is usually eliminated in one to two sessions for that particular hair type. Of course each session provides permanency and less hair will resurface with each treatment until you are completely 100% hair free whether it is strong or soft. A discussion in a private setting will be informational and your technician will be able to advise you accordingly for best permanent results. Once you have committed to your program and follow the advice of your technician you will be well on your way to being hair free forever.
With regular laser treatments a client can expect to finish in 1 - 4 sessions if you have very white skin and very dark hair colour. Most will need 4 to 8 sessions. Darker skins may take as many as 10 sessions. Research has shown that it will take 7 sessions on the average for many people to have a significant reduction in the treated area. This is only an average. Each individual will of course vary in the number of treatments according to their own unique biological chemistry.
Typically 1 -5 treatments are needed for maximum results, spaced approximately every 4 to 6 weeks.
Redness and a warm sensation are normal after treatment. A cool pack may be applied to ease these symptoms. The vessels should fade quickly, and some disappear immediately.
No anesthesia is required and most patients describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable. Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot snap.
The fairer your skin is the least amount of treatments you will need. The best response is seen with small thread veins, spider veins and rosacea. If there are any areas of broken skin, treatment has to be delayed until the area has completely healed
You will be asked to put on protective eye care. A layer of chilled gel is applied to the area to guide the light into the skin. The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area. and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The chilled gel is removed and the area moisturized
Facial thread veins, Rosacea, Spider Veins, Port Wine Stains and Legs veins up to 3mm diameter.
Intense pulsed light and laser systems release precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the blood vessel, heating it to a point where it is destroyed. Following treatment the vessels quickly clear and are re-absorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
Our photo-skin rejuvenation is very effective for psoriasis. This is aheived with a different crystal than the acne treatment and has helped to cure psoriasis in several cases.
3 to 8 treatments are recommended at 2 week intervals for optimal results. No peels are necessary with our Medicam system. Our acne crystal is a gentle approach and will give you noticeable results as soon as one treatment.
Approximately 30 minutes is needed for a comfortable treatment.
Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after treatment. A cooling pack will be applied to the skin to ease these symptoms. It will be necessary to avoid sun exposure or use a high protection sunscreen for 2 weeks after the treatment
The treated area can become quite red immediately after treatment. However, most patients experience no side effects and the redness usually disappears within a 1/2 hour to an 1/ hour. Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker. Also, it is possible but unlikely that there will be permanent hair loss in the treated area.
The light energy is absorbed by the skin, and heats it up very quickly, creating a sharp, short-lived hot snap sensation. No anaesthesia is required, other than cooling the skin and most patients describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable
All skin types can be treated even mildly tanned skin. As long as your skin is not ruptured and has healed and as long as you are not taking antibiotics or accutane you will be ready to procede with treatment.
