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.

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.
