Laser Hair Removal
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
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.

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.

What are the side effects of laser hair
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.

What areas can be treated with skin
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
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
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
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

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.
