3 Laser Treatments to Combat Troublesome Cosmetic Issues
Skin is the largest and most visible part of the body. Most people work hard to take care of their skin because it serves so many functions. When natural aging or environmental factors affect how the skin looks or feels, laser therapy may be the answer. Lasers are sources of concentrated and high-intensity light that can repair skin damage and pigmentation issues, as well as a range of other conditions.
When performed by an experienced professional, laser therapy can visibly improve the appearance of the skin. If you suffer from certain skin problems, The Face & Body Center proudly offers the advanced technology and tools to eliminate unwanted hair, tattoos, and varicose veins. Reach out to our clinic to learn more about the benefits of laser treatments and schedule an appointment in Flowood and Jackson, MS.
Laser Hair Removal
Tired of shaving and waxing? Unwanted body hair is one of the most common issues people face today. Laser hair removal is perfect for individuals with dark, coarse hair in a number of areas. This includes hair in the arms and legs as well as sensitive spots such as the bikini area and upper lip. Based on the area being treated, hair removal sessions are relatively quick. Since hair grows in cycles, patients may require several appointments scheduled about six weeks apart for the results to become permanent.
To begin laser hair removal, a member of our team will pass the device over the treated area. Patients should expect to feel a burst of cool air followed by a small stinging sensation. Many people compare the sensation to a rubber band snap. After the session is over, your technician at The Face & Body Center will offer helpful instructions for aftercare, such as applying soothing lotion or aloe vera to soothe the area. Generally, however, there are no expected downtime or side effects from laser treatment.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Tattoos are a wonderful way for people to express their personalities. After the years pass, some patients may become unhappy about their decision or don’t like the way they look. During your consultation, our staff can assess the size and color of the tattoo and make recommendations for laser tattoo removal. With our help, you can reduce or eliminate the appearance of the ink altogether. The most ideal candidates for laser therapy are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about their outcome.
During laser treatment, we will clean the treated area before passing the device over the skin. The light emitted from the laser targets and breaks up the ink to help diminish the appearance. We can offer numbing cream to make the experience more comfortable for you. Based on the size and newness of the tattoo, treatment time and number of sessions may vary. After each appointment, our experts will give you a clean dressing to wear until the next one. Although it may take a few weeks to see the final outcome of treatment, the results of therapy are long-lasting.
Laser Vein Removal
Veins are present in every part of the body and come in various shapes and sizes. Varicose or spider veins are usually described as red or purple-colored lines that are caused by broken blood vessels. These veins can cause some embarrassment when wearing some articles of clothing like shorts and bathing suits. If you have tried topical solutions in the past that were ultimately unsuccessful, The Face & Body Center can apply laser therapy to restore the appearance of your skin in Flowood and Jackson, MS.
Our staff begins laser therapy by preparing the patient in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. The heat from the laser system targets the veins, causing them to collapse and reduce in size. Just like all of the other procedures described here, laser vein removal requires multiple sessions to achieve the desired results, usually 2 – 3. The good news is that while some swelling is normal after the laser therapy appointment, there is generally no downtime involved.
