Did You Know…
The word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”
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 same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The Importance of Hydration in Combating Wrinkles

Let Your Friends Know About Fremont Laser!

We all know that water is very good for us. It regulates our body temperature, flushes out bacteria, and energizes our muscles. But did you also know that it’s incredible for your skin?Water improves skin care

Stay Hydrated

Our skin is, at the end of the day, an organ and like any other organ, it benefits greatly from hydration. Drinking water will help your skin build new cells, which will improve skin’s color and texture, creating the appearance of smoothness. Water basically helps your skin look its most radiant, glowing, and soft.

Water also replenishes skin tissue and helps it maintain its youthful elasticity, which delays wrinkles. When the skin isn’t getting enough hydration, it causes skin cell damage, which results in wrinkles, sagginess, tightness, and dryness—and dry skin has less resilience, making it much more prone to wrinkling.

Water is Very Helpful, But…

There is a beauty myth that drinking lots and lots of water will erase wrinkles. Unfortunately, this isn’t true. Water won’t turn back the clock, but staying hydrated will help your skin stay looking its absolute best, and may prevent further wrinkles from forming.

Conquer Your Wrinkles!

If you’re already on top of your water game, but also are interested in getting rid of the wrinkles that you already have, we offer excellent skin treatments at Fremont Laser to lessen your lines and creases.

Botox is, of course, a classic, and Dysport is very close to it, with very minute differences. Both are FDA approved and are very effective. Both Botox and Dysport have the ability to stop muscles from moving and creating wrinkles. This smooths out the skin, and is outstanding for deep burrows, eye lines, and forehead ditches.

Restylane and Restylane Lyft. These are very popular dermal fillers which uses hyaluronic acid (which is naturally produced within the body) to “plump” wrinkles out. Restylane is perfect for under the eyes, creases, and fine lines, while Restylane Lyft is a bit stronger—good for lifting and holding volume. Both are very effective for improving a “tired” or “grumpy” looking face.

CO2 laser skin resurfacing. This is the best treatment to fight advanced skin damage and wrinkling, but it does require a bit of downtime and a strict follow-up regimen. CO2 laser resurfacing works by using an extremely precise laser, which makes tiny holes in the troubled skin. This causes the area to heal itself and become healthy. CO2 is a little more intensive, but a wonderful option if you have the time to properly recover.
