1. You Will Want to Shave Before the Procedure

Laser treatments at the AesthetiCare Medical Spa Leawood Office are designed to destroy hair at the root, not at the surface level. Shaving prior to your laser hair treatment will remove the surface hair, allowing the laser to get to the root. Be sure you shave or cut your hair, not wax or pluck it, however. The root needs to be present for the laser to treat it.

2. Laser Hair Treatment Requires a Few Office Visits

The laser hair treatment itself doesn't take very long, only about 15 minutes, but you will need to plan on coming in to the AesthetiCare Medical Spa Leawood Office a few times over the course of the year to make sure that the hair is gone for good. The amount of time between your appointments will depend on how quickly your hair grows back, but most people return every one to two months over the course of a year for a total of six treatments on average.

3. You May Have Some Slight Irritation

While the laser hair treatments at the AesthetiCare Medical Spa Leawood Office are virtually pain free, that doesn't mean that you won't feel them at all. You may experience a prickly sensation or a feeling of warmth during the procedure, as the laser can get hot. After the procedure, you may experience redness, itchiniess, shedding and minor irritation. The side effects are generally very mild, however, and completely worth it for the benefit of having permanently silky smooth skin.

4. Individuals With Light Skin May See Faster Results

Because laser hair treatment lasers work by targeting dark spots on light skin, treatment may not be as effective for those individuals with dark skin. This doesn't mean that they cannot have laser hair treatment done at the AesthetiCare Medical Spa Leawood Office, however, only that they may require a special laser or additional treatments in order for the procedure to be effective.

Shaving is annoying, plucking is painful and regular waxing gets expensive in a hurry. Have laser hair treatment done at the AesthetiCare Medical Spa Leawood Office, however, and you'll have beautiful silky skin you'll love for years to come with no maintenance and no additional cost!

If you are looking for ways to prevent wrinkles, you aren't alone. No one wants a face full of wrinkles, and people all across the United States are taking action to help prevent and treat wrinkles every day. In fact, people regularly visit the AesthetiCare Leawood and Lawrence offices in order to do just that.

While it's no secret that some treatments work better than others, you might be surprised to hear that some of the best ways to Wrinklestreat and prevent wrinkles are easy, practical steps you can do with little to no hassle or expense. Here are six easy and affordable things you can do to prevent wrinkles today.

1. Get Plenty of Sleep

Your body, including your skin, repairs itself when you sleep. For soft, vibrant and wrinkle-free skin, getting enough sleep is a must. If you're having trouble getting enough sleep, an appointment at AesthetiCare's Leawood or Lawrence office can help.

2. Drink Plenty of Water

Water not only helps to soften and moisturize your skin from within, but it also helps to flush your body of toxins as well. Drinking water won't be a quick fix, but it can result in beautiful, youthful looking skin over time.

3. Wear Sunscreen

Few things damage your skin more than daily sun exposure. While a few rays are good for vitamin D production, avoid spending long amounts of time in direct sunlight, wear sunscreen whenever possible and stay out of the tanning bed.

4. Eat a Healthy Diet

Fight wrinkles and nourish your body from within by consuming a healthy, well-rounded diet. Your diet should include plenty of anti-oxidants, fresh fruits and vegetables, Omega-3 fatty acids and even saturated fats. Avoid processed convenience foods at all costs!

5. Quit Smoking

Smoking doesn't just ruin your lungs; it can ruin your skin as well. Smoking has been shown to cause dry skin, liver spots, an aged appearance, and--of course--wrinkles! If you smoke currently, stop right away. Otherwise, don't start and avoid those who do.

6. Visit the Medical Spa Regularly

If your skin needs a little pampering, AesthetiCare Medical Spa in Leawood and Lawrence can help! Come on in for a rejuvenating laser treatment or a moisturizing facial. We'll have you well on your way to a beautiful, youthful and wrinkle-free glow in no time!

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.
