Did You Know…
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

What to Look for in a Fremont Med Spa

Fremont Laser is NOT Your Ordinary Spa

You’ve probably noticed that today’s spas aren’t exactly your grandmother’s spas, or your mother’s for that matter. In fact, these days the beauty treatments that spas (or rather, med spas) offer include things that, when your mother was young, she probably never would have dreamed of—including laser skin resurfacing treatments, CoolSculpting to freeze fat away, vaginal rejuvenation treatments, all sorts of injectables, and more. “The beauty parlor” has come a long way. It’s no longer just hair and nail salons.

With cutting-edge med spas now competing for business and trust, it can be a bit difficult to choose which one is right for you. Similar to deciding on a new hair stylist, picking a good med spa comes down to personal preference and your budget. However, there are some basics to look out for.

Raving, Not So-So, Reviews

Ah, where would we be without customer reviews, testimonials, and feedback? The first thing to do when considering a Fremont med spa is to look over what their clients have said. Sure, there will always be some unsatisfied customers, but for the most part, you can get a good idea of a place by checking out their online reviews.

A Welcoming Atmosphere

A good med spa should have atmosphere that makes you feel welcome as soon as you walk in. It should be clean, comfortable, and nice-looking. If a place has a couch with rips in it, or dirty chairs, or old magazines tossed everywhere, you may want to re-think your choice.

Friendly Staff

No one likes the staff of any establishment being rude to them. Your med spa should have a staff that welcomes you with a smile, answers any questions you have in a friendly, patient way, and has a pleasant vibe. If the staff members act like you’re an inconvenience, the place is not worth your time.

Professionally Trained Professionals

This is an important area in which to do your research. These specialists will be working to aesthetically improve areas of your body, so you need to make sure that they are certified and truly know what they are doing. If you choose the wrong med spa, you could end up with skin damage or other problems.

A Complementary Consultation

The consultation you have should be a huge factor in your decision to go with a particular Bay Area med spa. Did you feel comfortable speaking with the specialist? Did they put you at ease and answer your concerns? Do you feel like you would be in good hands with them? If for any reason you didn’t feel welcomed by them or comfortable, find another med spa in the Bay Area.

Fremont Laser & Skin Care operates under the personal guidance of its founder, Dr. William H. Brown. If you’re interested in having any sort of skin treatment performed and have questions, please contact us at Fremont Laser & Skin Care.

Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence Treatment Options Increase with FemiLift


Dr. William H. Brown Offers FemiLift Laser Treatments at Two Locations

Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence Treatment Options Increase with FemiLift

Fremont & Monterey, CA – May 17, 2017- Women suffering from vaginal laxity, dryness, or urinary incontinence now have more treatment options available. Dr. William H. Brown is pleased to announce the arrival of the FemiLift Laser Treatment to both the Fremont and Monterey practices. This FDA-approved vaginal rejuvenation laser treats feminine concerns, including dryness, looseness, loss of sensation, and even incontinence.

FemiLift is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes a laser to rejuvenate and tighten the vaginal walls. Painless, more economical, and quicker than other vaginal rejuvenation options, FemiLift requires virtually no recovery time.

The FemiLift uses a small handheld device to distribute heat to the vaginal canal, encouraging the production of collagen tissue, which strengthens and lubricates the vaginal walls. As a result, patients will see a notable improvement in vaginal tightness, lubrication, and even sensation.

“I’m so happy to offer this treatment to our clients. Vaginal laxity is a very common, yet highly unreported, problem for many women. FemiLift changes that. It’s an easy procedure, but the results are profoundly life-changing.”
