No More Razor Bumps and Painful Waxing

Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means – bikini season. For women, this can be exciting and mortifying all in one. We all want one thing during this time of year – to feel confident and beautiful in that bikini.

Have you ever stayed away from a bikini or ditched plans on the beach because you had razor bumps or had to grow out your hair a little longer before you were ready for a wax? Something as silly as hair shouldn’t keep you away from your summer fun — this is the year to try laser hair removal!

Why laser hair removal?

Unlike waxing or shaving, laser hair removal does not leave behind red, damaged skin. This treatment is very precise and targets the hair follicles. Depending on your age, ethnicity, hormones, and coarseness of hair, you can have unwanted hair permanently removed in as little as 3 sessions. Laser hair removal is a safe, effective way to get rid of hair on your face, legs, bikini line, underarms, and more!

How does it work?

The laser setting is based upon your skin type and gives off a pulsed light laser beam in a systematic, spot-to-spot treatment. Each “zap” disables hair follicle growth at the root to eliminate the possibility of future hair growth.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Everyone’s hair removal experience is different. Those with darker skin, for example, tend to experience more discomfort due to additional pigment in the skin. Patients with coarse hair also report to have a higher level of pain. In comparison, waxing has been said to be more painful than laser hair removal. Many say that the “zap” feels like a quick rubber band snap. To minimize discomfort, your provider will provide creams or instruct you to apply a cold compress.

Dermal fillers are a popular choice for many patients in the Scottsdale area who want to rejuvenate their face without undergoing surgery. With a large array of dermal filler options already on the market, there is about to be a couple more. Galderma recently announced that the FDA has approved two new fillers: Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne.

Both of these new products are meant to smooth our smile and laugh lines, while maintaining a natural appearance. Restylane Refyne was approved for treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles, while Restylane Defyne was approved for the treatment of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds. They are both made with XpresHAn Technology, making the gel consistency flexible while providing support.

“Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are the latest FDA-approved advancements in HA dermal fillers and align with Galderma’s mission to help individuals achieve natural-looking results through treatments with a long-standing history of proven safety and efficacy,” said Kelly Huang, PhD – VP and General Manager of the U.S. Aesthetic and Corrective business of Galderma.

Both of these fillers can also offer long lasting effectiveness, with results lasting for up to 12 months. These fillers were also originally approved for use in Europe in 2010 under the name Emervel.
