Respected dermatologist explains why laser hair removal is among popular treatments in dermatology
Some people are perfectly happy with their bodies; however, others are not. Men and women may wish they could have certain areas of their bodies improved for several reasons including unwanted hair, unwanted fat, and unwanted wrinkles. Fortunately, there are solutions to their woes at Image Dermatology in Montclair. Laser hair removal, fat melting treatments, and Botox can help them achieve youthful looking smooth skin and the bodies of their dreams. Dr. Jeanine Downie, a respected dermatologist and founder of Image Dermatology, is happy to explain why these treatments are so popular.
Bidding farewell to unwanted hair
Shaving can leave razor bumps on the underarms, bikini lines, legs, and face. Tweezing and plucking the eyebrows or facial hair can cause redness and be painful. These methods for removing unwanted hair can be tedious. Laser hair removal can be the ideal solution. Depending on the area you wish to have treated, a treatment session can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. Depending on your genetic makeup and the thickness of your hair, you can count on 15 sessions to achieve optimal results. Eventually, you can forgo buying razors and tweezers and embrace smoother skin in the treatment areas.
Saying goodbye to stubborn fat
We call the areas on our sides that we can pinch “love handles.” However, we do not usually speak of these areas with affection. They are often areas of the body we wish to have improved. Dr. Downie can relate. She turned to an innovative skin tightening and tissue-melting treatment called Exilis to treat her “love handles.” She, as well as many of her patients, rave about the results from treatment. Exilis can be used to treat many areas of the body from the face to the ankles and leads as a popular treatment at Image Dermatology.
We can also utilize Futura Pro, which can shrink fat cells. For treatment, we use ultrasound for about 20 to 30 minutes, followed by placing electric muscle stimulation pads on the treatment areas for about 40 minutes. A complete session lasts about an hour and 20 minutes. After one session, you can look forward to increased muscle strength, firmer skin, and losing almost an inch in the treated areas.
Reducing the appearance of wrinkles
Vertical creases between the eyebrows (frown lines) can make you appear angry or sad when you are actually happy. Other signs of aging include the lines between the nose and mouth (laugh lines) and creases near outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). With Botox, one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dermatology, Dr. Downie can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. She has been using Botox for more than 18 years and loves the results. Botox can also be coupled with a dermal filler, which can add volume to the face.
