You’ve probably heard of laser skin services in the past, but what exactly are they? What do you need to know about them before receiving them? The words laser and skin may sound a little intimidating together, but laser skin services offer non-invasive and minimally invasive alternatives to surgery that uses light and laser technology to combat signs of aging by erasing wrinkles, tightening skin, and a variety of other things. Let’s take a look at the laser skin services offered here at The Glam Room and go over the important things you should know to help you decide which of these services is right for you.
Intense Pulsed Light
This is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that uses intense pulsed light therapy to revive your skin with health and beauty with minimal downtime. The treatments are customized to meet your individual skincare needs and can be used to fade hyperpigmentation, repair sun damage, minimize dilated blood vessels, and minimize the redness associated with broken capillaries and rosacea. IPL treatments can be used on various areas including the face, chest, arms, and other areas. You’ll wear eye protection during the treatment due to the intensity of the light. Afterward, you may experience some minor irritation similar to a sunburn which will resolve quickly on its own. After a few days, you should begin seeing results, but most people will need multiple appointments to reach their goals.
Laser Genesis Laser Facial
Anyone can benefit from a laser facial. Among its benefits is a reduction in redness, fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size as well as improved texture and a reduction in symptoms of rosacea and scarring. A Laser Genesis facial is a comfortable, relaxing procedure with no downtime. The laser creates heat within the middle layer of the skin to kick collagen and fibroblast production into high gear for healthier, younger-looking skin. It’s recommended to begin with 5 laser facial treatments about 2-4 weeks apart to attain gorgeously glowing skin. More treatments may be necessary based on your unique needs and response to treatment.
Laser Hair Removal
Continuously managing unwanted facial and body hair can really be a big hassle. If you’re tired of temporary solutions like shaving, waxing, tweezing, and depilatory creams you should consider laser hair removal. The treatments deliver targeted beams of laser light directly to the hair follicle where it heats the follicle causing damage that prevents hair regrowth. There is little to no discomfort, no downtime, and no damage to the surrounding tissues. You’re left with beautifully smooth, hair-free skin without the tedious, painful time-consuming task of hair removal day after day, week after week. After completing the recommended series of treatments, usually, 6-12 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart, your skin will remain hair free for months to years. Any regrowth that does occur is typically finer and lighter. You can have occasional touchup treatments as needed to address any new growth. Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere on the body where you have unwanted hair and is suitable for both men and women and all hair and skin types.
Laser Vein Treatments
While spider veins don’t cause you any physical harm, they can cause a huge hit to your confidence and self-esteem. In the past, these unsightly veins required injecting medications into the veins to cause them to collapse and be absorbed by your body. Laser vein therapy is a cutting-edge procedure that gently heats the target veins causing them to collapse without any needles, side effects of medications, or damage to surrounding tissues. There is less discomfort and downtime than with sclerotherapy injections as well. Depending on the severity and the size of the treatment area you may need 1-3 laser treatments scheduled 6 weeks apart to reach the desired results. Rarely some may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising for a few hours after treatments. You won’t need bandages or compression stockings and the only restrictions are no vigorous exercise for 24-48 hours following treatment.
Secret RF Microneedling
This is an innovative micro-needling system that uses radio frequency (RF) to rebuild and revitalize your skin. It can improve skin texture, fade scars, reduce wrinkles, and lift and tighten the skin. It works by creating tiny, controlled, micro-injuries to your skin, and then radio frequency energy is delivered into the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate the natural healing process and collagen and elastin production that restructure and tighten the skin. Downtime and side effects are similar to micro needling and consist of mild redness resembling a sunburn that lasts for about 48 hours. One major advantage is that one Secret RF treatment yields results equal to approximately 10 regular microneedling treatments. Most people will see optimal, long-lasting results after 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
