Achieve the Gift of Skin Rejuvenation through Utherapy




For many women, a milestone birthday can be dreadful as feelings that they let themselves go and wish they had taken better care of their skin are encountered. However, this doesn’t have to be so. Treatments such as skin rejuvenation can help women face their milestone years confidently, and keep everyone guessing about their age.

Age, environmental factors, and gravity – all of these play a part in the way your skin changes with each additional candle on that cake. And even the best moisturizers and creams in the market can only do so much to improve the look of your skin. For true skin rejuvenation to take place, you need something that targets the deep structural foundation of the skin to get real and effective results that give you the gift of renewed and refreshed skin. This is where Utherapy comes in.

Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive, procedure that is usually used on the face, neck, and chest using ultrasound. This treatment works by stimulating the deep support structure of the skin – including those typically addressed in surgical facelifts – without having to cut or disturb the skin’s surface. This means no downtime for you, which ought to give you plenty to smile about already.

Here’s how the procedure works:

Instead of penetrating the skin from the outside going in, we bypass the surface and get to the skin tissue where collagen is produced. Collagen is what gives the skin its elasticity, tone, and firmness. Because it utilizes ultrasound, it uses ultrasound imaging to actually “see” the layers that will be treated, to ensure that energy is delivered to the target areas. The same handpiece delivers the targeted ultrasound waves to the desired areas. The result is production of new collagen by your body resulting in a gradual lifting of the skin; the slackness of your face is reduced, the brows lifted, and the neckline is improved. The ultimate effects are realized over two to three months as the supply of collagen in built up. As this continues, further results can be seen up to six months from the procedure. This is definitely something to smile about!

If you want to address the problems of skin discoloration or wrinkles, we also have treatments to address these issues.

For many women, they combine their skin rejuvenation with dermal fillers like Botox or Dysport to treat facial wrinkles. These treatments can be done in just a few minutes and the effects can last up to six months.

To find out more about skin rejuvenation treatments or any other treatment you would like to give yourself before you hit your milestone birthday, feel free to contact us today for a consultation or an appointment. You don’t have to face your birthday with dread anymore. Face it head on and love every minute of the new, refreshed you.

Laser Hair Removal in Orange County: Is It Worth It?




Laser hair removal in Orange County is very popular, particularly since this method of removing hair is deemed effective and cheaper in the long run. How so?

In an area such as Orange County, most folks are used to impromptu beach parties. However, sparing a minute or two to shave your legs and armpits could result in shave burns and wounds that might only render your skin tender – not to mention ruin the appeal of the outfit you’re planning to wear. Aside from this, regular plucking, shaving, and waxing hair could take its toll on the skin. The mere act of yanking hair off the armpits, for example, could cause chicken skin, bumps, and uneven skin tone. On the other hand, shaving and waxing could wound and damage surrounding areas.

If you’ve had enough of plucking, shaving, or waxing, then it’s time to consider the benefits of laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is painless and ideal for removing unwanted hair from the face, underarm, bikini line, arms, legs, and other areas. Each session lasts from a few minutes to an hour or so, depending on the area that should be treated. To give you an idea, laser hair removal for the upper lips could last for a few seconds, while applying the procedure on the legs could last for as long as an hour.

How does it work? The procedure utilizes highly concentrated light energy that is directed towards hair follicles in problem areas. Light is absorbed by the hair follicle, which, in turn, becomes damaged. The laser directly targets hair and does not affect the surrounding area, resulting in fewer blemishes.

What’s more, it has the added benefit of permanently removing unwanted hair. About 90 percent of laser hair removal patients can attest that permanent hair loss on problem areas was achieved after three to five sessions, indicating that the treatment will pay for itself many times over in the course of your lifetime. You no longer have to buy good razors, hot or cold waxing agents, or shaving creams – all of which run the risk of wounding and irritating your skin. Most importantly, you’ll be saving precious time by never having to shave, pluck, or wax again.

You’ll be able to enjoy the freedom of stepping out of the house without worrying about the length and coarseness of hair in your exposed body parts. You’ll be more confident and able to wear all the sleeveless tops you want without having to lower your arms every time someone else is nearby.
