For 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.

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 asked 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.

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.
This non-invasive, nonsurgical system uses cooling technology (also known as Cryolipolysis®) to break down fat cells in certain areas 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
