If you want to look 21 forever, the time to start thinking about how to achieve that is NOW, even if you’re only in your 20’s and have nice wrinkle-free smooth skin.
So, how can you future-proof your skin and you appearance? When it comes to treating the signs of aging, many people used to take a wait-and-see approach. As in, wait until a wrinkle or age spot appears and then see what to do about it. In fact, many of the advertisements for anti-aging creams and treatments are aimed toward older people, not you. But don’t be fooled. Starting now ensures that you will have smooth, wrinkle-free, clear, soft skin.
Start with Preventative Botox® Treatments and Fillers
Are you already seeing small wrinkles around your eyes or between your brows when you smile or squint? Over time, these lines will just get deeper and harder to treat as they become etched in – essentially they become scars. Now is the time to start preventing permanent damage. By starting mini treatments now, you not only prevent facial muscles in those areas from creating deeper lines in the future, but Botox® can retrain these muscles to be less active, less problem-creating.

Skin is your largest organ and the first line of defense against infection. During chemotherapy, good skin care is not just cosmetic, it is also an essential part of your treatment.
We’ve all heard that chemotherapy causes hair to fall out, but chemotherapy can cause your skin to become drier and more fragile than ever before. You may even be more sensitive to the sun. That all sounds quite scary, but if you take good care of your skin, it’s possible to have soft, healthy, comfortable, and attractive skin throughout your treatment process. (more…)
Times change. Fashions change. Basically, life changes. But tattoos are forever. Or are they?
Tattoo removal has become one of today’s most popular aesthetic treatments. According to a recent poll, 1 in 4 adults with tattoos experienced tattoo regret.
New, advanced laser tattoo removal technology has made it possible for unwanted tattoos to be more efficiently and effectively removed than previous lasers. However, challenges such as ink particle size, tattoo color, depth of ink particles, tattoo age, and location, all play a role in the speed of clearance and the number of treatments required to achieve optimal results.
The question is, how do you choose the most effective treatment and the most professional and effective clinic? Before you decide where to have your tattoo removed, visit the clinic and ask some important questions. Here are some questions you will want to ask during your initial consultation. (more…)
Just like a fingerprint is unique to each person, each one of us has a particular infrared heat map of our body. By using this unique “map”, and especially being aware of changes on the map over time, thermography can detect early signs of cancerous tumors, abnormalities, and other dangerous heat-producing growths.
Thermography (digital infrared thermal imaging) is a non-invasive clinical procedure that shows an infrared heat map of your body. At Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center we use thermography to detect cancerous breast growths even before they are apparent on a mammogram. (more…)
Is fear of pain keeping you away from getting the aesthetic treatments and procedures you want? If so, you are not alone. One of the most common concerns for patients before trying a new aesthetic treatment or service is: will it hurt?
Most treatments don’t hurt. With some, like Botox® Cosmetic injections, you might feel a pinch. Still, you might be a bit scared or anxious, or maybe you just have a low tolerance for any pain. There are many options out there to ease the discomfort during treatments, such as ice, topical creams, acetaminophen (Tylenol®), anesthesia, and numbing injections. However, these methods are not always practical or effective. Another very safe option for pain relief during aesthetic treatments is nitrous oxide. (more…)

At Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center, we use many types of fillers, depending on your needs. Today, we will focus on products from Allergan®, the makers of the Juvéderm® family of injectables. (more…)
