Are you bothered by dimple-like cellulite on the hips, thighs, stomach, or buttocks? If so, you’re not alone. Cellulite is a condition that affects nearly every single woman at some point in her life. The pesky problem typically doesn’t respond to diet or exercise and can be extremely hard to treat on your own. At Laser Skin Care Centers, our favorite cellulite reduction procedure is VelaShape. This non-surgical solution produces exceptional results for the right candidate. VelaShape VelaShape is a non-invasive procedure that not only reduces the appearance of cellulite but helps contour the body. The treatment uses a combination of infrared light, radiofrequency wavelengths, and advanced vacuum technology to temporarily improve the skin’s structure and texture. There is no discomfort or downtime associated with the procedure. Patients are able to go back to their day to day activities immediately following their in-office visit. Side effects should subside quickly but may include slight redness or swelling at the treatment site. Most VelaShape patients need 3-4 treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. [...]
Most women, no matter their size, shape, or age, have some type of cellulite. Cellfina is the first FDA approved procedure for adults designed to improve the appearance of cellulite by treating its structural cause. What is Cellfina? Cellfina is a one-time minimally invasive treatment that works by targeting the structure of cellulite bands that appear in the thighs, flanks, and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the dimpling you see on the surface of the skin. Once released with Cellfina, the treated skin becomes smoother. Cellfina has been proven to last up to two years and longer, in some cases. Though it is not a weight loss treatment, Laser Skin Care Center offers a 1 year warranty. If cellulite reappears n the treated area within a year from treatment, we will treat it again for free. How Long Does the Treatment Take? The procedure takes approximately about one hour for every 25 dimples. Most patients use Cellfina for cellulite on the back [...]
Intense Pulsed Light, also known as IPL, Fotofacial or Photofacial, delivers high-intensity pulses of light that penetrate your skin and get rid of brown spots (age spots) caused by sun damage and unwanted spider veins, while stimulating healthy, new collagen. To maximize effectiveness of your IPL photofacial, there are a few things you should do before and after the procedure. It is extremely important that the area being treated is not tanned or exposed to direct sunlight 2 weeks before or Sun exposure encourages the production of melanin, which can interfere with the effectiveness of the treatment by “protecting” the skin by absorbing the light’s energy. Be sure to use SPF even when stepping outside for a brief period. You should also moisturize regularly, and avoid smoking to promote better healing. There are some retinoid antibiotics that may cause skin sensitivity that your doctor may ask you to avoid. Hydration is extremely important for the skin and for recovery. After treatment, most patients experience a few days of redness (similar to a [...]
Cellfina™ is the first FDA approved procedure for adults designed to improve the appearance of cellulite. This one-time, minimally invasive treatment works by targeting the structure of cellulite bands that appear in the thighs, flanks, and buttocks. The end result is smooth skin that lasts for at least two-three years and perhaps considerably longer based on long term follow up of the earliest studies. Studies showed that 93% of Cellfina patients were happy two years after their treatment. In 2016, it had been reported that even at 4 years, satisfaction ratings remained over 90%. Though the FDA cannot guarantee permanent results, most patients find that cellulite does not return if they maintain good exercise and diet habits. Our Cellfina Limited Warranty guarantees patient satisfaction for at least one year. If your results fade before the one-year mark or you are not happy with your results, we offer a free treatment. However, most patients never need a second Cellfina treatment. If, however, you develop more cellulite down the road, it’s possible to have more Cellfina [...]
