BotoxGet rid of common facial lines and wrinkles by opting for Botox at Aestheticare near Kansas City.
 
However expected they might be, no one wants to deal with the physical effects of aging. Fortunately, AesthetiCare Medical Spa in Leawood and Lawrence offers a simple and non-invasive cosmetic treatment which can wash away crow’s feet and years off your face.
 
What is Botox?
 
Botox is botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin produced by the C. botulinum bacterium. It’s a common misconception that Botox actually paralyzes certain muscles in the face. In actuality, it merely limits how often these muscles contract to reduce overactivity. It is highly safe, and FDA approved to treat a wide range of problems, such as chronic migraine headaches, eye muscle disorders, and muscle stiffness.
 
In the cosmetic world, botox is used to treat a variety of cosmetic issues including crow’s feet, laugh lines, and other fine lines and wrinkles along the neck, chin, forehead, mouth and nose.
 
Does Botox hurt?
 
Because the needles are so thin, most patients experience little discomfort during their Botox injections.
 
How long does it take to get Botox in Kansas City?
 
The injections only take a few minutes to administer. The number of injections you require will depend on the severity of your condition and the size of the treatment area.
 
When will I start to notice results?
 
This treatment will start working a couple days after your injections and you’ll start to notice results in about four to seven days. You will achieve the maximum results at around two weeks. Your results will last as long as four months after the procedure.
 
How often can I get Botox?
 
If you want to maintain your younger results, continue to see us for follow-up Botox treatments. Talk to us about how often you should come in if you want to maintain your new appearance.

Discover both the rumors and the truths about laser hair removal treatment.

Now that it’s summer, it’s time to pull out your fun summer wardrobe. Unfortunately, you may not feel excited by summer if you are Laser Hair Removaldealing with unsightly and unwanted hair. While waxing or shaving could help you for a couple of days, why deal with the annoying upkeep when you can see Dr. Kathy Gaumer at AesthetiCare Medical Spa in Lawrence for laser hair removal? If you’ve heard a lot about laser hair removal and you’re not sure if it’s true or not, we’re here to help dispel some of the myths so you can find out if this treatment is right for you.

Myth #1: Laser hair removal is really painful.

Truth: Laser technology has certainly come a long way, especially when it comes to how it treats certain skin conditions. This means that we can offer laser hair removal that isn’t painful. While the procedure isn’t completely pain-free, most patients don’t feel more than a pinprick or snapping rubbing band sensation. In fact, many people find that laser hair removal is significantly less painful than waxing.

Myth #2: Laser hair removal in Lawrence will get rid of all hair.

Truth: Hair grows in cycles, which is why it’s necessary to have more than one laser hair removal procedure to get the best results. Most treatments remove anywhere from 40 to 80 percent of hair.

Myth #3: Laser hair removal exposes you to radiation.

Truth: Our laser hair removal treatments have all been approved by the FDA and do not expose patients to radiation. While radiation is found with the confines of the laser, this is only non-ionizing radiation, which emits light. This is not the same as ionizing radiation, which is found in X-rays.

Tags: Dermapen  

DermapenFor those looking for a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that will reduce the appearance of acne and superficial scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, Dermapen may be the answer! Dermapen is a revolutionary new technology at your Lawrence med spa that helps to regenerate and stimulate collagen growth to tighten and revive the skin.

How Does It Work?

Collagen is a major part of the structure of the skin, and as we age, we start to lose it. This causes our skin to sag and to develop wrinkles. Dermapen jumpstarts the production of collagen to help tighten skin and increase elasticity. To do this, the Dermapen uses a series of micro-needles to pierce the skin to remodel collagen, tighten the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and fill acne scars.

When you come into Aestheticare Medspa in Lawrence for Dermapen we will first apply a topical cream to the areas of the skin we are going to treat. Once numb we will start to administer the series of fine needles to your skin. When each needle penetrates the dermis it causes micro-traumas, which causes the immune system to produce new collagen. And because we use a topical anesthesia, the treatment is virtually painless.

What Are the Benefits of Dermapen?

Dermapen offers a non-invasive way to improve the appearance of your skin. Furthermore, the rejuvenating results you can achieve with Dermapen are comparable to that of other more invasive and costly cosmetic treatments. Plus, Dermapen can be used by itself, or complement other cosmetic treatments like chemical peels, cosmetic surgery, and dermal fillers.

When you choose Dermapen you also won’t have to worry about a post-treatment recovery period, as you would with other procedures. To maintain results, we often recommend that patients get up to six treatments each year. Most patients will start to notice an improvement in their skin about a week after treatment.

If you are interested in finding out how Dermapen can help you, then it’s time to schedule a consultation with our Lawrence Med Spa. Dermapen is also available in our Leawood location. Call our office today at (785) 856-8880 for our Lawrence office, and (913) 338-5476 for Leawood.
