AesthetiCare is a Medspa in Leawood helps patients improve their looks and their confidence using non-invasive cosmetic treatments. One popular option we offer is the Dermapen, used to fix skin imperfections. Patients often have questions about the Dermapen and how it can help them, so here are some answers that can help you decide if this treatment is right for your needs.

What Is the Dermapen?
The Dermapen is a device that emits microscopic needles in a vibrating pattern against the skin. The needles stimulate collagen production in the skin, which helps to tighten and resurface the area. Essentially, the Dermapen works to mend your complexion in the most natural of ways - by stimulating your skin's natural ability to heal itself!

How Can the Dermapen Help You?
There are a number of aesthetic skin problems that can be resolved with a Dermapen treatment at the AesthetiCare Medspa in Leawood, including:

  • Acne and unwanted pimples
  • Rough skin and discoloration
  • Burn scars
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles and lines in the face
  • Large pores

If you have a unique skin concern, talk to the staff at AesthetiCare to see if the Dermapen is right for you. 

A Non-Surgical Solution
Patients like Dermapen because it is like getting a "face lift" without going through invasive surgery. It is a small handheld device that allows your doctor plenty of freedom to treat the skin. This is an in-office procedure that can be completed in under an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated.

Tags: Tattoo Removal  

We make a lot of decisions as young people that we don't always agree with as we get older. Tattoos often fall into that category - people often get them on impulse without thinking much about their long-term effects. But thanks to laser tattoo removal services, patients who have been tattooed in the past can have them removed at a local medspa. These are a few of the most frequently Tattoo Removalasked questioned that Lawrence area patients have about laser tattoo removal at AesthetiCare Medical Spa.

Are Tattoos Permanent?
Many people think that when they get a tattoo they have to live with it for life. But thanks to laser tattoo removal, your tattoo mistake doesn't have to be a permanent one!

Laser tattoo removal is the process of administering pulses of light to the skin, removing tattoo ink. As the ink is targeted, it releases and is flushed out of the body by the immune system. This is considered one of the safest and most effective methods for tattoo removal.

How Long Does Tattoo Removal Take?
A tattoo removal procedure at AesthetiCare Medspa in Lawrence commonly requires five or more sessions, which will last up to 15 minutes each. The exact number of treatments depends on how colorful and large the tattoo is on the surface of the skin. After your first treatment, you’re encouraged to wait up to eight weeks to see how much the tattoo fades before getting another.

What Are the Results and What Are Aftercare Requirements?
After the tattoo has been removed, there may be some redness on the skin or swelling. Most of these effects are temporary, and simply part of the healing process as the body disposes of the unwanted ink. It’s important to closely monitor the healing process and stay in touch with your doctor. You must keep the area clean, dry, covered and treated with antibiotic ointment.

Schedule a Tattoo Removal Consultation
If you have a tattoo that you don't like anymore, contact AesthetiCare Medical Spa at (785) 856-8880 for an appointment to discuss laser tattoo removal services.

CoolSculpting

The New Year welcomes a host of different resolutions. While some people may hope to start a business or take on a new hobby, one study found the number one New Years resolution last year was to lose weight. While diet and exercise are the key ingredients to a more ideal body size, for some people it can still be difficult to lose weight in certain areas. If a healthy diet and regular exercise isn’t helping you lose stubborn body fat, then it might be time to consider how your Leawood, KS MedSpa can help.

What is CoolSculpting?

This non-invasive, nonsurgical system uses cooling technology (also known as Cryolipolysis®) to break down fat cells in certain Cool Sculptingareas of our body without affecting the tissue around it. The result is that over the course of a few months you will notice a fat reduction in those treated areas.

What should I expect from my CoolSculpting treatment?

When you coming in for your treatment, we will use an applicator that’s controlled by our CoolSculpting monitoring system. We will attach this vacuum applicator to the areas to be treated to remove energy from the fatty tissue and to kill the fat cells.

Are there any side effects to treatment?

Sine this is a non-invasive technique you will be allowed to return to your daily activities without restrictions. You may notice some redness in the treated areas but this should last no more than a few hours. You may also experience bruising or swelling, which will subside after a few weeks.

What will my results look like? How long will my results last?

About two to four months after CoolSculpting, the patient will noticeable a considerable fat reduction in the targeted areas. After the two to four months, those who are looking to gain even more fat reduction may opt for subsequent treatments.

At the moment, research has found that the results last at least six months after your treatment; however, the removal of fat cells is predicted to last as long as removing fat cells through other procedures like liposuction.

Who should consider getting CoolSculpting?

This procedure is recommended for those who are healthy and fit but still experience pockets of fat in areas that diet and exercise doesn’t seem to change. This is not considered an alternative to weight loss nor will it be helpful for someone who is obese. This is also not an alternative to liposuction.

If you want to get a slimmer figure for the New Year, then contact AesthetiCare Medical Spa in Leawood, KS. Let this simple procedure give you the look you desire.

Learn How Our Lawrence, KS MedSpa Can Reduce The Appearance Of Enlarged Pores.

Who doesn’t love the idea of perfect skin? After all, it’s often one of the first things people notice about us. If you suffer from large pores, you may feel a bit embarrassed about your skin. However, there are ways to combat this problem. Find out how your Lawrence, KS MedSpa can help.

If you want to minimize pores there are some simple steps you can take when it comes to your own skin care:Reduction of Large Pores

  • Only buy skin care products that are noncomedogenic, as they won’t clog pores.
  • Too much sun exposure can cause pores to appear bigger; therefore, you should always wear sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 and protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Try a clay mask on the oilier parts of your skin, which also tend to have the most visible pores. Leave the mask on for a few minutes before washing it off.
  • Always remove makeup before going to sleep to prevent your pores from stretching over time.

While these tips can be helpful for some, there are others who will need a little more help from their Lawrence, KS medical spa to reduce the appearance of their pores. Here are some treatment options we offer:

Prescription Retinoids or Retinol: These skin care products can effectively unclog pores, which will help reduce their visibility. This is ideal for oilier skin types. Talk to us about whether retinoids would be beneficial for your skin.

Microdermabrasion: This is one of the best cosmetic treatment options for those looking to reduce the appearance of their pores. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin using a handheld device, removing the outer layer of dead skin cells and improving the look of your skin. Microdermabrasion has been used to improve wrinkles, sun damaged skin, acne and scarring, and large pores. This treatment is non-invasive and painless. This is a great option for those looking for more drastic results.

Chemical Peels: Chemical peels require applying a strong chemical agent to the skin to remove the topmost layer of damaged skin. By resurfacing the skin your Lawrence, KS medical spa can guarantee a significant change in the appearance of your pores. Chemical peels can cause some redness and irritation after the procedure and you will need to avoid the sun afterwards to prevent complications.
