Did You Know…
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 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 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.
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.
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 word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”
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.
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.

Make Sure Your Specialist is Legitimate

Laser Specialist Med Spa

There’s a wide and exciting world of amazing options out there for those who are unhappy with their skin, whether it’s because of acne scarring, sun or age spots, wrinkles, uneven tone, pigmentation, stretch marks, rosacea, or pronounced veins. With the right laser treatment, Botox, or dermal filler, these issues that are bothering you can be greatly improved or eliminated altogether.

However, if you’re like many people, you may be nervous about the person who will be administering your treatment. After all, lasers and needles don’t exactly invite comfort to begin with. Shouldn’t you be absolutely certain that your specialist is, well…a specialist?

While laser and dermal treatments aren’t invasive like surgery, they still require more trust than something like a haircut or manicure. They are widely accepted and popular, but it’s important that you’re completely sure that the spa or clinic you visit employs a licensed staff, as well as an in-house doctor.

Because of the popularity of these treatments, an overwhelming number of facilities are now offering them, even though lasers and fillers may not be their area of expertise. You’ll see quite a few eye doctors, nail salons, and dentist offices that provide cosmetic treatments, but they aren’t always the best choice. It’s better to leave cosmetic treatments to those who were specifically trained.

How do you know that your specialist is legitimate? Here are some things to know.

Your Specialist Should Take a Long Look at You

If you feel that your specialist is in a rush and trying to get you out the door, run for the hills. A professional who cares about your satisfaction will study your face: every line, blemish, spot, and shape. They will do this in order to determine your dosage (in the case of fillers or Botox) or the level of laser you need (if you’re getting laser work done). When it comes to injections, dosage and placement make all the difference.

Run from Groupon-Type Deals

A spa or facility offering “discount Botox” or discount anything to do with lasers or needles is to be heavily avoided. Why? Because discount Botox shows. It’s simply not an area to skimp. Most people who decide to go with cheap injections or laser treatments just end up paying for it later—literally. They have to visit a different specialist for damage control.

A Professional Will Keep Your Records

When it comes to injectables, there is no “one size fits all” amount. This is why a legitimate specialist will keep your unit numbers on file for your future visits. It will help them (and you) to understand what’s working for you. The last amount you received might have been too much, or not enough.

A Real Doctor Should be on Staff

Most states require a licensed doctor to be on staff at any business that administers laser or injectable treatments. While this is the law, many places try to get around this by advertising a “supervising doctor,” which basically means that their doctor is technically employed, but is never around. It’s very important that the business you choose not only has a doctor on staff, but that he or she is actually available. Find a place with a very involved, caring doctor.

At Fremont Laser, we take what we do extremely seriously. As a laser and skin care facility with professional registered nurses, we are committed to providing the smoothest, safest experience for each and every one of our clients with the best technology and products available.
