Did You Know…
Neurotoxins are medications developed from the bacteria known as clostridium botulinum. Researchers noticed that people infected with this bacterium had suffered muscle weakness. Dysport and Botox have been developed from this discovery.
In the 1450s, women would shave their pubic hair to get rid of lice. And then they would have a pubic hair wig made as a replacement.
The word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”
The same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.
Just before the laser is fired, a jet of frozen air is sent to the skin to protect the skin from the laser energy and to decrease the pain.
In the past some doctors tried to dye the patient hair dark so that more of the laser energy would be absorbed by the hair and thereby the laser would more effectively remove the hair. Unfortunately, it did not work because the dye did not reach the hair follicle.
The light from a hair removal laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle. The laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicle and is destroyed. Since people have different skin colors, we need to have lasers with a variety of colors of laser light.
The idea behind the CoolSculpt machine started after doctors noticed that children who sucked on popsicles lost the fat in their cheeks without damage to the skin. It is amazing what can develop from a simple observation.
A tan can absorb some of the energy of laser light and prevent the laser light from reaching the hair follicle. Do not get a tan before laser hair removal.


DermaSweep is all the Rage!

Why DermaSweep Treatments are Sweeping Fremont Med Spas

One morning you look in the mirror and see nothing but your skin’s problem areas. Next thing you know, you’re online googling professional skin treatments.

Sound familiar? We all do it. But there are so many skin treatments offered at med spas like Fremont Laser & Skin Care. How are you supposed to know which one is best to treat your concerns?

If you’re looking for a treatment that will improve common problems such as sun damage, enlarged or clogged pores, crow’s feet, uneven skin texture, wrinkles, fine lines, brown patches, blemishes, stretch marks, surgical scars, age spots, pigmentation, acne, or scars, then consider DermaSweep, which greatly improves these conditions with a series of treatments.

DermaSweep is similar to microdermabrasion, a treatment that uses crystals or diamonds to remove dead skin, only DermaSweep doesn’t use these crystals. Instead, it uses several attachments with fine bristles, which allows Fremont Laser & Skin Care’s trained and certified staff to treat patients based on how fragile, sensitive or tough their skin is. For example, a patient with very sensitive skin will require a tip with finer bristles—as would treatment of the soft skin around the eyes—while stiffer bristles are used on male skin or for acne scars.

The bristles gently scrub, providing a deeper exfoliation that smooths and brightens the skin. These bristles are designed to cleanse, nourish, revitalize, retexturize, and protect the skin, as well as soften fine lines, lighten wrinkles, brighten complexion, and purify pores. Another big benefit to the bristles is that they stimulate blood flow, which provides more nutrients and oxygenation to the area being treated. This boosts skin health and collagen production.

DermaSweep can be customized to include skin-specific infusions such as Vitamin C and growth factors for anti-aging, hyaluronic acid for hydration, and peeling agents for abnormal pigmentation. These infusions are delivered under very gentle pressure to allow for deeper penetration.

Another impressive benefit of DermaSweep is that it incorporates adjustable vacuum pressure. Using a mild suctioning device that’s built into the hand applicator, the gentle vacuuming action immediately pulls away dead skin cells after they’re brushed off. This prevents the cells from clogging pores. Bonus!

Typically, DermsaSweep treatments are 45 minutes long, and the best part is that you’ll see visible results after only one session. However, lasting and more significant results will occur after four to six treatments scheduled ten days to two weeks apart.

DermaSweep is also quite painless. Some patients compare it to a face massage. You can, however, expect to feel a little tightening or tingling afterward the procedure, but post-treatment moisturizer leaves your skin with a cool, smooth, refreshed feeling.
