Laser Hair Removal Helps Patients Experience Smooth Skin for Good

If shaving is a part of your beauty routine that you dread or you’re tired of the razor burn and nicks from shaving, it may be time to consider something different: laser hair removal treatments at Leawood’s AesthetiCare MedSpa. We have offered these treatments for more than 13 years.
 
Laser hair removal treatments involve exposing your skin to a laser that specifically emits a wavelength designed to target hair pigments. This damages the hair follicle so it does not re-grow hair. This process often takes several treatments because your hair follicles are often in various stages of growth. Typically, we recommend you come for laser hair removal treatments every four to six weeks at our Leawood MedSpa for best results.
 

What are Common Areas treated for Hair Removal?

The laser can treat most areas of the skin where you would like hair removed. This includes the bikini line, chest, face, underarms, back or legs. Previously, some clients did not qualify for laser hair removal if their skin was certain shades. However, today’s laser innovations mean laser therapy is safe for all skin types and hair colors. Additionally, laser treatments are not associated with causing significant discomfort. However, the laser exposure can feel like a rubber band is snapping against your skin. We will make every effort to make the procedure more comfortable.
 
With summer just around the corner, enjoying the warm weather without the need for regular shaving or to feel self-conscious if you forgot to shaving can make for a more enjoyable shorts and swimsuit season. You can expect to see maximum results in anywhere from four to eight treatment sessions, depending upon your unique hair growth. The results vary by client. Some of our Leawood clients find their results are permanent while others may require follow-up treatments after several months.

Lawrence & Leawood Patients: Microdermabrasion Puts Your Best Face Forward

 
Taking excellent care of your skin often means regular exfoliation to smooth your skin and prevent dead skin cells from clogging your pores. At AesthetiCare MedSpa, you can experience an even deeper exfoliation thanks to microdermabrasion treatments. 
 
Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment that involves using a special wand with small crystals on it to smooth and exfoliate the skin. The wand also uses a vacuum suction device to sweep away the dead skin cells. Think of the wand as a gentle “sander” for your skin. The microdermabrasion tool is different from an exfoliating scrub you might use at home because it removes the superficial outer layer of skin that has been damaged by pollution, sun exposure and scarring. We use the DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System, which has a diamond-tip wand to smooth the skin.
 

What does Microdermabrasion Treat?

At our MedSpa, we use microdermabrasion to treat a variety of skin conditions. These include treating age spots, stretch marks, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne and acne scarring. In addition to smoothing your skin, microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen production. Collagen is the elastic fiber in your skin that keeps it looking taut and smooth. When collagen starts to break down, you can experience increased incidences of skin wrinkling. While you can see results after just one visit, repeat visits can help you achieve the most noticeable results.
 
Microdermabrasion is a painless way to achieve smoother skin. Moving the wand across your skin feels like a gentle tugging on your skin or as if you are undergoing a massage with gritty materials. Microdermabrasion typically take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes and can be combined with other facial treatments offered at our Lawrence MedSpa. While the procedure will leave your skin slightly pink in color, you can typically return to your day’s activities quickly. However, you should apply sunscreen before exposing your skin to the sun because it may be especially sensitive after microdermabrasion.
 
To learn more about microdermabrasion or to schedule a treatment, please call Lawrence’s AesthetiCare MedSpa at (785) 856-8880 for more information.

Exilis Skin Tightening and Fat Reduction

As we age, we can become discouraged with our appearance due to wrinkles and excess fat.  With help from our staff at AesthetiCare MedSpa in Lawrence, we can help remove unwanted wrinkles and fat with the latest in technological advancements.  At AesthetiCare we utilize Exilis, which is a skin tightening system that utilizes a revolutionary system to tighten skin and remove wrinkles. The Exilis system delivers heat directly to the skin, contouring the face and neck. By harnessing ultrasound energy, even tissue resistant to treatment can be safely and effectively targeted.
 

How Exilis Works

First you can schedule a consultation with an Exilis provider, or cosmetic medicine specialist who will discuss your treatment options with you and listen to your concerns. The physician or technician will explain the procedure and work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets all of your needs. During your therapy session the Exilis Skin Tightening system will restore your skin while you relax.
 
The Exilis system uses radio frequency waves to send deep heat to specific areas. This heat causes the connective tissue to shift collagen, and tighten the skin of the eye area, jowl, and neck areas. With only four to six treatments the effects of Exilis can be seen, as skin appears younger and healthier. The device includes a hand held applicator that allows the specialist to massage the skin with the thermal heat. This provides a relaxing experience for the client.
 
Typically a treatment area requires twenty to thirty minutes per session, with four to six treatments total. About one week in between treatments is necessary for the skin to be readied until the following session. While some results from the procedure are visible immediately, all of the benefits of the Exilis system take two to four months to be completely visible.
 

The Non Surgical Alternative

One reason the Exilis Skin Tightening system is so popular amongst celebrities is that it provides a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Because no scalpels or injections are required, patients can rest easy while their cosmetic medicine specialist cares for their skin. With the advanced radio-frequency energy, the deepest layers of skin are heated causing fat cells to shrink.
 
The Exilis Skin Tightening system boosts collagen without painful surgery or injections to the face and neck. Results are visible immediately, so you don't have to wait for skin to heal after a surgical procedure. You can get the treatment any time, as there is no recovery period or medications required while your skin heals, as with older methods of skin tightening.
 
The Exilis system is clinically proven to provide lasting skin tightening. Wrinkles are smoothed out and in some cases no longer visible. Many people avoid surgery because of the necessary anesthetics, but with the Exilis system no anesthesia is required. This means there are no uncomfortable side effects and no downtime as with surgical procedures.
 
If you have problem areas around the eyes, mouth, jaw, chin, jowl, décolleté or lower neck, areas of bra fat on the back, arms, legs, abdomen, or knees the Exilis Skin Tightening system will work wonders for you. It is even effective on ankles for the treatment of 'cankles' or bulky lower calves. This new skin tightening system can also be used to compliment liposuction after surgery. Visit our MedSpa in Lawrence for more information on this innovative procedure and how it can provide improved results for sagging skin and fat reduction.

Kansas City Area Patients: Botox Provides a Host of Benefits

Are you looking for a solution to your aging skin? When searching for a way to improve your skin’s appearance, look no further.  At AesthetiCare, we offer Botox for Kansas City area patients.  While Botox is a well-known brand name, do you know the benefits that Botox has to offer you?  Let’s take a look at the top four benefits: Botox Treatment
 

1. Botox is Non-Surgical

Many people might think that the only solution to gaining a more youthful appearance is with surgery.  However, some of the best treatments are non-surgical, and one is Botox.  This is a minimally invasive procedure that can help with wrinkles in the forehead, neck and around the mouth.
 

2. Botox is Proven to Lift the Brow

As you age, your brow may drop or lower.  With Botox, you can lift the brow, which makes your face look less tired, giving you a more youthful appearance.
 

3. Botox May Even Reduce Migraines

It has been shown that Botox can sometimes improve a patient’s health, as they begin to exhibit fewer to no migraine headaches.  While it improves your appearance, it may also be beneficial for those who suffer from chronic headaches.
 

4. Botox Decreases Excessive Sweating

Men and women might experience excessive sweating under their arms, which can be embarrassing—dealing with it daily.  Instead of constant maintenance, Botox can help lessen the amount of sweat produced to minimize excessive sweating and the embarrassment associated.
 
If you are interested in improving your appearance and eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, Botox from our Lawrence and Leawood area office might be just what you are looking for.  Contact AesthetiCare MedSpa today for more information on Botox and to see if it works for you.
