Laser Hair Removal

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Laser Hair Removal is a faster, gentler way to remove unwanted hair, with great results. Laser Hair Removal applies precisely controlled pulses of energy (electrical and light, with cooling), reaching into the hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The energy heats the hair, right down to the bottom of the root, destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue or skin.

What does laser hair removal feel like?

Each pulse, which lasts less than a second, produces a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a quick, light pinch.

Is laser hair removal suitable for everyone?

At DermaSkinSpa we customize your laser hair removal treatment to exactly match your hair and skin color and type. As long as there is some color in your hair (even blond hair has enough color), then our laser hair removal system will be effective.

What are the side effects of laser hair removal?

The energies used by DermaSkinSpa (electrical and light) are both commonly used in a range of medical and cosmetic procedures that have proven to be safe. Most people experience no side effects at all, though few exhibit some short-term local reddening of the surrounding skin. You can return to your regular activities immediately after laser hair removal treatment, although it is advisable to keep the skin protected from exposure to direct sunlight for a short period of time.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

Our laser hair removal technology destroys hairs that are in the active growth phase, so repeat treatments will be needed to target hair that was not affected at the time of previous laser hair removal treatments. Normally six* laser hair removal treatments are recommended to get the optimum results and our written guarantee**.

What results can I expect from laser hair removal?

At the end of the laser hair removal treatment program you can expect your skin to remain smooth.

Skin Rejuvenation

What areas can be treated with skin rejuvenation?

Treatments utilizing Skin Rejuvenation technology can be used on any part of the skin. Skin rejuvenation treatments are especially effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck and chest.

What results can I expect with skin rejuvenation?

You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries after your skin rejuvenation treatment. People with visible aging from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother, with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and fading of sunspots. Many people see an improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medications.

What is a Skin Rejuvenation treatment like?

Each skin rejuvenation treatment takes approximately 20 to 40 minutes. A mild amount of discomfort can be expected. Immediately following a skin rejuvenation treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed, and tiny capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots generally appear darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of time.

These treatments are alternated with Microdermabrasion treatments for safer, more rapid skin renewal.

How soon will I see results from my skin rejuvenation treatment?

After your first skin rejuvenation treatment, your skin will feel smoother and will have a more even tone. These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Six skin rejuvenation treatments are performed for optimal results. Some patients will benefit from additional treatments.

Who are the best candidates for Skin Rejuvenation treatments?

The best candidates for Skin Rejuvenation treatments are:
  • People who suffer and experience flushing and redness of their skin.
  • People with early aging changes and sun damage, who desire healthier more youthful-appearing skin.
  • People who donít want to take time off to heal from laser resurfacing or chemical peels.
  • Active people who don't want the treatments to interfere with social or outdoor activities.


Skin Tightening

What is skin tightening?

DermaSkinSpaís Skin Tightening treatment with Refirme uses clinically-tested infrared and radio frequency (RF) energies to stimulate healthy collagen remodeling inside your skin, to tighten sagging skin and naturally fill in wrinkles at the jaw line, around your eyes, at your brow line and around your mouth and cheeks. Unlike treatments that paralyze or mechanically tighten your skin, our Skin Tightening stimulates natural, healthy processes inside your skin that make it look and act younger and firmer, the way it used to be. After as few as three skin tightening treatment sessions spaced three to four weeks apart, wrinkles start to fill in and sagging skin tightens up and return to its original contours. The benefits of Skin Tightening treatments can last as long as two years.

How does skin tightening work?

The infrared and radio frequency (RF) energies produced by DermaSkinSpa's customized ReFirme systems penetrate the surface of your skin to heat the collagen inside your skin and promote collagen remodeling over time, while immediately promoting skin tissue tightening as a result of deep heating. The treatment head actively cools the surface of your skin to minimize or eliminate any heat-related discomfort during the skin tightening treatment process. The cooling factor of the treatment head is adjustable to each individual patient's heat sensitivity. Collagen is a key component of your skin's elasticity and firmness. Once collagen remodeling is promoted by Skin Tightening treatments, skin becomes naturally more elastic and firm, filling in wrinkles and bringing sagging areas back closer to their original contours.

How safe is skin tightening?

Unlike injections or plastic surgery, ReFirme Skin Tightening is non-invasive and does not involve any breaks in the surface of your skin, so it does not present an infection risk or require any recovery period. Your DermaSkinSpa Skin Tightening specialist will ensure that any concerns are identified before treatments begin to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the skin tightening process.

Cellulite Treatment

How does cellulite reduction therapy work?

The VelaShape cellulite reduction therapy works by combining a strong physical massage of the cellulite layers under your skin with penetrating heat and radio energy to recontour your body and improve the unsightly appearance of cellulite.

How well does cellulite treatment work?

In clinical research published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, 90 percent of adult women treated with the VelaShape cellulite treatment system noticed overall improvement. Almost 95 percent of the women who saw improvement planned to purchase additional VelaShape cellulite treatment on other areas of their bodies after the research study ended.

What does cellulite treatment feel like?

The VelaShape cellulite treatment feels much like a deep tissue massage. There may be initially a slight pinching of the skin, which can be eliminated by the technician through adjusting the rollers on the treatment head.

What are the side effects of cellulite treatment?

There may be very slight bruising or reddening after the first few treatment sessions.

How many cellulite reduction treatments will I need?

The number of needed cellulite reduction treatments varies on the area of the body being treated and on a variety of personal characteristics, but patients generally see significant improvement within one month of biweekly cellulite reduction treatments.

What cellulite reduction results can I expect?

Cellulite is a natural part of your body, and no therapy, not even surgery, can eliminate it. DermaSkinSpa's cellulite reduction therapy, however, recontours the cellulite layers, and will smooth them out to reduce or eliminate the unsightly ridges or "cottage cheese" appearance of untreated cellulite.

*Depending on hair and skin color, some persons may require additional sessions.
