Why We Use SkinCeuticals

Here at The Laser Lounge Spa, we use only the best equipment when we do our treatments. From Sclerotherapy to SculpSure, we know that the best tech gets the best results. And the same goes for the products we use and recommend. When it comes to skincare, there’s no better company than SkinCeuticals.

Why does SkinCeuticals work?

It’s backed by science, plain and simple. This is a skincare company that uses research and testing to find out what works and what doesn’t. Skinceuticals gel peel.jpg

All of their products are made in the USA and are used by professionals like plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and med spas like ours.

Their products are referred to as cosmeceuticals because they’re a cross between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

It all started with the company’s founding scientist and chief medical advisor, Dr. Sheldon Pinnell. He helped launch the Duke University Antioxidant patent which is licensed exclusively to SkinCeuticals. Along with other leading scientists, the company has set the bar for skincare.

The antioxidant formulation that SkinCeuticals uses has 10 patents and over 200 studies published in medical journals. There aren’t many other skincare companies that can claim something like this.

How The Laser Lounge Spa Uses SkinCeuticals

We not only recommend SkinCeuticals to our clients, but we use the products in our treatments.

In our Advanced Corrective Peel, we use the SkinCeuticals Advanced Corrective Peel product to perform the treatment. This chemical peel can only be used by an authorized SkinCeuticals skincare professional, which we have.

Our store offers many SkinCeuticals products such as Anti-Wrinkle Polish and Plump, Clarifying Clay Mask, and more.

If you’re interested in learning more about SkinCeuticals or getting a recommendation from one of our staff, come visit one our office locations or call us at 239-728-1234.

What’s an Epiwave Facial?

If you’re been to The Laser Lounge Spa or seen our website, you’ve probably come across a treatment called “Epiwave Ultrasonic Facial”. Sounds pretty fancy, right? Let’s break down the term so you understand exactly what it means.

Epiwave
This is the name of the company that produces the device we use in this procedure.

Ultrasonic
This refers to the ultrasonic vibration that the device uses to clear your skin.

Facial
Each of our three types of Epiwave ultrasonic facials is used on the face.

What’s the benefit of this facial?

This type of facial is best for those with skin problems or acne, as well as those seeking the benefits of an anti-aging treatment. epiwave-ultrasonic_facial

The use of the Ultrasonic vibration is to allow for deeper cleaning of the skin. The soundwaves are also great to clean sensitive skin.

What are the types of Ultrasonic Facials?

At The Laser Lounge Spa, we offer three types of this facial:

  • Ultrasonic Peel
  • Collagen Booster Treatment
  • Stem Cell Treatment

The Ultrasonic Peel works by targeting impurities and removing dead skin cells. This leaves the skin clean and exfoliated.

Our Collagen Booster Treatment involves getting topical collagen and antioxidant products deeper into the skin, rather than just on the surface. A boost of collagen can give your skin a more youthful appearance.

The Stem Cell Treatment uses a low-level current to reach and restore injured cells. This is a great anti-aging procedure that is also pain free!

Our awesome Sarasota location made a video about the Epiwave Ultrasonic Facial treatment, so you can see just what you can expect.

What’s the Difference Between Ultrasonic Facial and Dermafile?

Dermafile is another facial treatment we offer here at The Laser Lounge Spa. Rather than using an ultrasonic device to target and remove dead skin cells, Dermafile uses patented skin polishing and resurfacing tool made of stainless steel and finely crushed diamonds.

dermafile

In the treatment, this tool is used to lightly polish the skin and remove the top layer of dead skin cells.

Dermafile targets the top layer of skin, while our Epiwave Ultrasonic Facial treatments can go deeper.

How to remove varicose veins

Varicose veins, are gnarled, enlarged veins that appear in the legs and feet, although any vein can become varicose. Although we may use varicose and spider veins interchangeably but spider veins are actually a milder form of varicose veins.

varicose-veins

Mayoclinic.org

Most of us know varicose veins by sight: dark blue or purple in color with a bulging, twisting appearance. Apart from the unsightly look, varicose veins can cause painful problems like achy legs, throbbing, pain after standing or sitting for too long.

What are the causes?

There are quite a few factors that can cause varicose veins:

  • Age
    As you age, your veins will become weak and can get enlarged. The blue appearance is because the vein is carrying deoxygenated blood.
  • Pregnancy
    Pregnant women can form varicose veins especially in their legs and pelvic area due to a decreased flow of blood.
  • Sex
    Women are generally more likely to form these types of veins especially due to fluctuations in hormones.
  • Obesity
  • Family history
  • Sitting or Standing for long periods
    Working in a job that doesn’t allow you to change positions for long stretches of time can cause blood to flow improperly, forming varicose veins.

Why remove them?

Apart from the cosmetic reasons, varicose veins can cause a few rare complications.

  • Blood Clots
    If a vein deep within the leg becomes enlarged, it can swell too much and can indicate a blood clot.
  • Bleeding
    If veins are close to the surface, they can burst. It’s important that if this happens, you know that there is a high risk that it could happen again.
  • Ulcers
    Ulcers form due to fluid buildup caused by the increased pressure of blood within the varicose vein.

 

How to remove them

Luckily, the medical field has developed multiple ways for varicose vein removal. Many of these procedures and treatments do not even require a long stay in a hospital.

Self Care
This includes exercising, losing eight, and avoiding sitting or standing for too long. This will help ease the pain of the veins and prevent them from worsening. This treatment will not remove the varicose vein.

Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is offered here at The Laser Lounge Spa. We inject the vein with a chemical solution which causes it to eventually close off and disappear. This procedure is useful for both surface and deeper veins. In as little as 1-2 treatments nearly 80% of the spider veins can be gone.

Compression Stockings
These stockings are for sale at most pharmacies. They help squeeze your legs to allow blood to move more efficiently.

Laser Surgeries
A new technology sends bursts of light onto the vein to help them disappear.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy
Tiny skin punctures help remove small varicose veins.

Kybella: The solution for chin fat

Kybella, it’s one of our newest treatments here at The Laser Lounge Spa. We’re always looking for innovative solutions to our clients’ problems and were so glad to have found this new procedure.

For those of you who have chin fat, you know the struggle that is trying to remove it. What kind of exercise can you do to get rid of fat under your chin? It’s a real problem area for both men and women, and before Kybella you would likely have to go under the knife to remove this fat.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved, non-surgical injectable to reduce chin fat. The double chin, is a stubborn problem area that this injection can help target. The molecule in the injection eats away fat cells. The fat cells, once destroyed, can no longer accumulate or store fat any longer.

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.

Mykybella.com

before-after-kybella

On Realself.com, a website where people review and rate different health treatments, Kybella is at an 88% which is an excellent rating!

Kybella treatments take as little as 15-20 minutes and require no down-time or recovery. This means you can get up and get on with your day. Each treatment usually happens about 1 month apart, and more treatments may be necessary depending upon the look you want to achieve.

Who is it for?

  • If you feel that you’re unhappy or self-conscious due to chin fat, you may be a perfect candidate for Kybella.
  • If you feel that chin fat is making you look older or heavier than you actually are.
  • You don’t want to go through surgery
  • You eat well and exercise, but the problem area persists.

Check out the Kybella website to see before and after photos and to read patient stories to see how this treatment has affected their lives.

In studies, 79% of patients treated with Kybella had improved satisfaction with their appearance 12 weeks after their last treatment, compared with just 33.6% of patients that were treated with a placebo.

Where is it offered?

The Laser Lounge Spa currently offers Kybella treatments at 4 of our locations: Bonita Springs, Estero, Fort Myers (Daniels) and Fort Myers (Verandah).
