kybella-before-and-after

We are now offering KYBELLA double chin reduction injections! Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile! The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA®destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Patients typically only need two treatments for best results.

Come in for a free consultation with Dr. Nina Desai to determine if Kybella is right for you! Call 832-491-2852 for appointment.

Skin Care Regimen for Erasing Acne Scars and Uneven Skin Texture

Posted by with No Comments

acne scars

Acne scars, surgical scars, cellulite, enlarged pores, and keratosis can cause skin texture to become bumpy and uneven. Uneven skin texture can be difficult to hide since its hard to apply make up on bumpy skin. Make-up often makes uneven skin texture look more noticeable because it sinks into the skin craters. Bumpy skin texture is difficult to smooth, but can be significantly reduced with the right skin care products! These are our top product recommendation for smoothing uneven skin texture:

The first step to even out bumpy skin texture is to get on an effective skin care regimen because the skin needs continuous promotion of cellular turn over and regeneration. Use a cleanser in the morning and night to wash away dead skin cells that can make skin look bumpy. Sun screen is absolutely necessary to correcting uneven skin tone because sun exposure could make scarring permanent. Use a healing moisturizer to nourish and hydrate the skin to speed up the healing process. In the evening, after you have applied your healing moisturizer, use a retinol product to help shed the skin of dead skin cells. After you have have established a skin care regimen, you can start retexturizing treatments to speed up the healing process. We recommend the following products to smooth skin:

Exfoliating Cleanser:

NEO Cleanse Efoliating Skin Cleasner(2)

Neocutis NeoCleasne Exfoliating Cleanser contains 2% glycolic acid which has the ability to deeply penetrate the skin to release and dissolve dead skin cells. Use morning and evening. 

 

 

 

 

Healing Sun Screen:

journee(2)

Neocutis Journee SPF 30 is the best sun screen for uneven skin texture since it contains growth factors that stimulates growth of living cells. This powerful sun screen not only protects skin, but heals skin, reduces redness, tightening skin, and leaves skin glowing. Use in the morning.

 

 

 

Total Defense SPF 50(2)

 

 

Skin Medica Total Defense + Repair sun screen is great for protecting skin from damaging UV rays. Use in the morning.

 

 

 

Healing Moisturizer:

Bio Serum(2)

Neocutis Bio Serum contains powerful growth factors that will jump start skin’s healing process. This product is light so it will not cause acne or clog pores, and gently moisturizes. Use in the evening. 

 

 

 

 

 

TNS Essential Serum

 

Skin Medica’s TNS Essential serum is one of the most powerful anti-aging product on the market because it contains a strong dose of growth factors that promote collagen production which is necessary for smoothing skin texture. Use in the evening after cleansing.

nouvelle-retinol(2)

How Much Bikini Hair Should I Remove?

Posted by with No Comments

Untitled-1

It is essential to maintain the appearance of bikini hair in the hot summer months, but how much should you remove? If you don’t remove enough you will be uncomfortable, but if you remove too much that might also make you uncomfortable. There are three bikini hair removal options, but which one is right for you? There is not a one size fits all answer for this question, but we can go over your options to help you choose the one you think you will be comfortable with.

The first option, and often the beginning option for women who are new to bikini sculpting, is to just remove hair on the bikini line. With this option, hair that strays outside of underwear (or bikini bottoms) will be removed about two inches from your thigh crease. The bikini line area is typically not that sensitive, so hair removal is just about painless.

The second option, and often the most popular choice, is a full bikini. With this option, hair is reduced starting from about three inches under the belly button, ending at the labia, and extending out about two inches from your thigh crease as needed. This option is also common for women who are not sure if they want to be completely bare. Full bikini hair removal is slightly more sensitive than the bikini line since hairs do increase in follicle size towards the labia.

The third option, and most hygienic option is the full Brazilian! With this option, hair is removed from the top of the bikini area, inside and outside of the labia, the anus, and extending out about 2 inches from your thigh crease as needed. In other words, all hair is removed from the bikini area. This option is popular for women who experience darkening of bikini skin, acne, razor bumps, and ingrown hairs. Since hair is being removed from the labia, the most sensitive part of the bikini area, this is a sensitive area to remove hair from, but is very tolerable. The pain associated with hair removal is commonly less bothersome than the negative effects of having bikini hair.

Benefits of removing bikini hair include:

  • Increased hygiene
  • Decreased odor
  • Smoother skin
  • Avoided razor irritation
  • Prevention of ingrown hairs
  • No itchiness from shaving
  • Save money on waxing/razors
  • Lighten the color of the bikini area skin
  • Prevents infection from ingrown hairs
  • Prevents infections associated with shaving cuts

Now that you know what your hair removal options are, how do you remove the hair? Dr. Nina Desai recommends laser hair reduction treatments because it is safe, effective, and permanent! Laser hair reduction can be performed on women of all ages, skin types, and colors! It takes 6 treatments to remove 70-95% of bikini hair. The remaining hair is usually very thin and not noticeable or bothersome. Treatments are spaced out 6-8 weeks apart, so you don’t have to be inconvenienced with frequent office visits like with waxing.

What is the first treatment like? What should I expect?

You will need to shave the area as well as you can to ensure that the heat from our laser is delivered directly into the hair follicle. On your first treatment, you will be given a wrap to change into. The laser tech will move the wrap out of the way as needed, to keep you as comfortable as possible. After your first treatment, the hair will look likes its growing faster than normal, but is actually just falling out. Hair will shed for about 2-4 weeks, and then skin will be smooth and hair free for about 2-4 weeks more. When you go back for your next treatment, you will notice that not all of your hair as grown back, and will look blotchy.

Is it expensive?

Treatments are very affordable, and start as low as $299 for a package of 6 treatments!

What if I am too shy to expose my bikini area to the laser technician?

Our bikini technician is very professional, and performs several of these treatments a day so bare skin is not a new sight to her. The technician allows you to keep your cover up on, and will move it out of the way to work on one area at a time without exposing the entire bikini area.

How old do I have to be to get laser hair removal?

We have patients as young as 15 years old getting laser hair reduction treatments (with parental consent of course). We recommend starting laser hair reduction treatments around 18-21 years of age. Laser hair removal does not work on grey hair, so we do recommend getting treatments before hair starts to grey.

Will the hair always be gone?

Significant hormonal changes such as pregnancy will cause some of the hair to grow back, but this is no big deal. One touch up treatment as needed (about once a year) will maintain the permanence of the laser treatments.

Top 5 Treatments to get this Spring!

Posted by with No Comments

Top-10-Spring-Treatments

The skin care goal this spring is to leave behind dry, dehydrated, and bumpy skin for smooth, radiant, cellulite-free skin! We have rounded up the top 5 skin care treatments that are designed to reverse signs of winter skin.

#1 Spring Skin Care Treatment: Permanent Laser Hair Reduction

Laser Hair Reduction is the most popular treatment to get in the spring, since spring fashion typically bears more skin than winter fashion.  Since more skin is being shown off in the spring, you might find that you want to reduce the amount of hair on your skin to prevent it from showing! Reducing hair also prevents skin from trapping bacteria in hair that can cause odor, and prevents irritation from frequent shaving. The most popular body areas to get Laser Hair Reduction for women are bikini, upper lip, underarms, and legs. The most poplar body areas for men to get Laser Hair Reduction is the back, chest, eyebrows, ears, and stomach. Laser Hair Reduction works by removing hair by destroying the blood supply to the hair follicle, preventing the follicle from producing hair. We prefer to call the treatment Laser Hair Reduction rather than Laser Hair Removal because hair is expected to be reduced by at least 75%. Although not all hair follicles will be completely destroyed, the remaining hair is thin, sparse, and typically not noticeable or bothersome. All skin types and colors can safely be treated with our laser machine, the Cutera Yag.

Benefits of Laser Hair Reduction

  • Increased hygiene
  • Decreased body odor
  • Smoother skin
  • Eliminates razor irritation
  • Eliminates itchiness from shaving
  • Lightened skin tone
  • Prevents infections caused from shaving cuts
  • Saves money on waxing/shaving expenses
  • Hair reduction is noticeable after only one treatment
  • Prevents ingrown hairs

 

#2 Spring Skin Care Treatment: Trusculpt Cellulite Reduction

Spring may not be bikini season, but it is the time that people get their bodies into bathing suit shape. Getting swimsuit-ready takes time, which is why Dr. Desai recommends getting Truscupt in the spring rather than the summer. Trusculpt works by delivering radio frequency pluses into the skin to heat unwanted fat cells, promoting apoptosis (death of fat cells). Up to 25% of unwanted fat cells in the area treated cannot survive, and over time your body will naturally get rid of the dead fat cells as waste. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart, which is why we recommend getting Trusculpt treatments done in the spring, before the summer bathing suit season. Any area of the body can be treated, even the chin!

TruSculpt Benefits

  • Reduces the appearance of fat cellulite
  • Designed to treat “problem areas”
  • Comfortable procedure
  • Fast treatments
  • No downtime
  • No painful freezing of fat
  • Can reduce cellulite on any area of the body
  • No dieting required
  • Although recommended, no exercise is required
  • Targets the areas you want
  • Improves skin laxity

#3 Spring Skin Care Treatment: Ultherapy Ultrasound Skin Tightening

Ultherapy is popular in the spring because it can tone and tighten the eyebrows, lower face, chin, neck, and chest. Ultherapy treatments can get your skin vacation photo ready, and also protect your collagen from all the fun in the sun you’re planning on having. Environmental factors, such as sun damage, can stress skin, causing sagging and development of fine lines that can add years to appearance. A surgical facelift may provide excellent results, but can also be expensive and require an extensive recovery period. Ultherapy strengthens existing collagen, speeds up collagen production, and tightens tissue without downtime or pain! Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound energy that strengths and builds collagen in the deep levels of the skin. Ultrasound energy creates thermal (heat) energy that triggers the body to naturally produce and repair collagen.

Benefits of Ultherapy

  • In-office treatment
  • Noninvasive
  • No general anesthesia needed
  • Takes between 30 and 90 minutes
  • No downtime
  • Tightens facial tissue
  • Regenerates and repairs collagen
  • No Injections

#4 Spring Skin Care Treatment:  Rejuvapen Scars & Uneven Skin Texture

The strong spring sun can make your surgical scars, acne scars, injury scars, stretch marks, and pores more noticeable . Rejuvapen is an easy, natural treatment that gently creates micro-perforations in the skin that stimulates the body’s ability to repair damaged collagen. The Rejuvapen treatment is similar to acupuncture in the sense that micro-perforations are made into the skin to stimulate the body to respond. In contrast from acupuncture, the Rejuvapen utilizes what is called micro-needling, and in Rejuvapen’s case, 9 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge are used to create invisible vertical micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The body immediately responds by increasing the formation of new tissue to refresh mature skin, as well as releasing growth factors that promote scar and hyper-pigmentation repair and healing. Your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated, and the overall condition of the skin improves. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. The number of treatments needed is determined by the severity of the skin issue.

Rejuvapen Benefits

  • Minimizes pore sizes
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightens and rejuvenates skin
  • Lightens skin tone
  • Improves appearance of stretch marks
  • Improves the appearance of scars
  • Improves the appearance of acne scarring

#5 Spring Skin Care Treatment: Lip & Cheek Dermal Filler

The lips and cheeks can look deflated after the winter because cold weather causes skin dehydration. Dermal filler moisturizes the skin from within, and also adds volume. Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement, and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age. Just like the other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is naturally present in your skin. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in the lips and skin surrounding the lips, and is made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an FDA approved mid-face (cheeks) dermal filler used to not only add volume, but also lift sagging skin. Volume loss in the mid-face is the major reason we lose our youthful facial contour when we age. Contrary to traditional dermal filler that only focuses on adding volume, Voluma lifts skin as well as adding volume. Just one Voluma treatment can make a dramatic difference, and last up to two years.

If you have questions about any of these spring treatments, or if you would like to book a free consultation with Dr. Nina Desai, please call 832-491-2852 or email info@renewlaserandskin.com.
