MedSpa Quiz: Laser vs. Injectibles. Which treatment is right for you? (Visit)
Category: med spa
Are you bothered by the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, or lax skin? If so, you may be able to benefit from skin resurfacing treatments. It is a non-surgical treatment to help rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful-looking complexion. There are several different treatment options when it comes to skin resurfacing, with plasma and laser treatments the two most popular. Read on to learn more about the differences between these treatments and which one is right for you.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing uses laser energy to carefully remove layers of the skin. Once the topmost layers of damaged skin are removed, new cells can form, resulting in smoother, tighter skin. At Laser Skin & Wellness, we offer the Fractional Laser Treatment to treat uneven skin texture, scarring, lines, and large pores.
During treatment, hundreds of micro-beams create deep micro-columns of thermal tissue damage, causing a controlled wound. This trauma to the skin is what creates natural collagen, resulting in a more youthful-looking complexion. Following treatment, the skin will be red and swollen, and some areas may be bandaged. Be sure to follow your provider’s aftercare instructions for optimal results.
Opus Plasma Resurfacing
Plasma skin resurfacing uses high-frequency unipolar radiofrequency energy to create tiny channels in the skin and jumpstart its natural collagen production through a wound-healing response. At our office, we offer the Opus Plasma treatment for skin resurfacing to address acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness and uneven texture, and pigmentation. Opus Plasma can be used on many areas of the face and neck, including sensitive areas such as around the eyes.
Because of Opus Plasma’s state-of-the-art technology and approach, patients experience drastically less downtime than other laser treatments. You can expect about one to two days of redness and swelling, but you can generally return to your regular schedule immediately after treatment.
Which Skin Resurfacing Treatment is Right for You?
Overall, the treatment option that is right for you will depend on your individual skin type, skincare goals, and lifestyle. Your first step will be to schedule a consultation appointment with one of our skilled estheticians to determine which laser treatment is right for your individual goals. We will create a personalized treatment plan to help you make your skin goals a reality.

If you fill in your brows or wear mascara daily, you understand how tedious and time consuming this can be. At Laser Skin and Wellness, we offer two popular options that allow you to enjoy the look of makeup without daily application: microblading and lash extensions. These procedures offer natural-looking results that are long-lasting, saving you time in your daily routine while boosting your confidence from the moment you wake up.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a specialized technique of cosmetic tattooing. The procedure involves using a pen with super-fine needles to deposit pigment into the skin in brush stokes mimicking the look of individual hairs. This creates definition in the eyebrows for a more flattering look that still appears natural.
The Microblading Procedure
At Laser Skin & Wellness, our microblading services are performed by Korina. Prior to your treatment, Korina will carefully match an ink color to suit your skin tone and desired results. An outline of the brow is then drawn to guide the treatment. Once you and your microblading specialist are satisfied with the outline, numbing cream is applied to keep you comfortable during the treatment. The microblading procedure can then begin using the microblading pen and ink. Korina or your microblading specialist will carefully create small, hair-like strokes for a natural effect. Through this technique, the ink is deposited in superficial layers of the skin. This means that microblading offers semi-permanent results, lasting 1-2 years.
What are Lash Extensions?
Lash extensions are false eyelashes that are individually applied using a professional-quality adhesive glue. This makes them somewhat similar to traditional false eyelashes, but much longer lasting. Lash extensions provide a significant improvement in the length and fullness of the lashes while remaining lightweight and comfortable. At Laser Skin and Wellness, this service is provided by Korina, our Eyelash Extension Specialist. Korina is very experienced in applying eyelash extensions and offers training to others in the procedure. She customizes results so you can enjoy a range of looks, from a soft and natural look to more dramatic and glamorous results.
Lash Extension Application
Prior to your lash extension appointment, you should avoid putting on any makeup or oily skin care products such as a heavier eye cream. It is also recommended that you avoid curling your eyelashes on the day of your appointment. On average, a lash extension application takes about one to two hours to complete. Korina will consult with you about your desired results and consider your eye shape and other factors while planning your eyelash extensions. The lashes are then individually applied to the natural lashes and secured with an adhesive. Lash extension applications are not painful whatsoever.
After your lash extensions have been applied, Korina will advise you to avoid getting the lashes wet for 24 hours. She will teach you how to clean and comb the lashes out routinely. Lash extensions are not permanent, because the natural lashes will continue to grow out and shed periodically. You can schedule routine refill appointment to maintain your results. Most people schedule their appointment for about every two to three weeks although some extensions will hold for up to six weeks.

Most women have cellulite at some point in their lives, but despite being so common, most would agree that they would rather have smooth skin. Cellulite is not caused by excess fat or lack of exercise. Instead, the condition is caused by collagen bands pulling the skin down and creating dimples. QWO® is a new treatment option that many patients are interested in trying to reduce cellulite. Before you schedule your consultation, here are some things you should know about QWO®.
What is QWO®?
QWO® is a new treatment option for cellulite. It is an injectable product that works using an enzyme to break down the collagen fiber bands that pull the skin down and create the dimpled appearance of cellulite. QWO® has been proven to be effective through clinical trials, and because it is an injectable, there is no anesthesia or surgery required to complete the treatment and achieve smoother skin.
Who is a Good Candidate for QWO®?
About 90% of women have cellulite, meaning that QWO® can be beneficial for a large number of patients. The treatment is approved for women who have unwanted cellulite on the buttocks or thighs. During a consultation, your injector will evaluate your skin and make sure that cellulite is the true reason for an uneven or dimpled look. In some cases, skin laxity is the cause for dimples rather than cellulite—for these patients, another treatment option would be more effective. You will also review your health history to make sure that QWO® is a safe option for you. QWO® is not recommended for those who have bleeding disorders, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have certain allergies.
When Will I See Results from QWO®?
QWO® treatment is completed in a course of three injection sessions which are scheduled about 21 days apart. Most patients will see their final results about ten weeks after their first injection session. By this point, you will notice significantly smoother skin and visibly reduced cellulite.
Is QWO® Safe?
QWO® is safe for patients who are healthy enough to receive the injections. There are some common side effects of treatment, with bruising being the most notable. Particularly after your first injections, bruising is the most profound and will last several days. You may also notice soreness, similar to what you would feel after a workout, as well as nodules which should dissipate within a week.
Some risks of QWO® injections can include allergic reactions, swelling, or pain at the injection site. If you notice hives, trouble breathing, or other significant symptoms, you should contact a doctor as soon as possible. These risks are rare and can generally be avoided by disclosing relevant health conditions or allergies with your injector during your consultation. Your injector will also give you specific aftercare information to help you avoid these risks and minimize any side effects.
Schedule a Consultation
To learn more about QWO® and see if it is a solution for your cellulite, schedule a consultation at Laser Skin & Wellness in Lake Worth and Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Call or text (561) 641-9490 or reach out to us online to set up your first appointment.
Microneedling is a versatile skin care treatment, making it a very popular choice for many of our patients. The treatment works by stimulating collagen production through a series of micro-injuries. At-home dermal rollers and other microneedling systems are available, however, these treatments are not as effective or safe as professional microneedling treatments.
At Laser Skin & Wellness, we have different options of RF Microneedling: the Vivace RF and the Morpheus8, which combines radio-frequency energy and microneedles to further stimulate collagen production and kill acne-causing bacteria. This system offers a variety of benefits to our clients.
Vivace RF and Morpheus8 Microneedling devices, are incredibly versatile treatments, useful for a wide range of skin concerns. They can be used to improve:
This wide range of uses means that Vivace RF and Morpheus8 Microneedling is suitable for many clients, regardless of their age, skin issues, skin types, or the area of the face or body they wish to treat.
While some more severe issues, such as significant excess skin or jowls, require surgery, microneedling is a good solution for those who want to improve their appearance and fight signs of aging without surgery.
Easily Customizable Treatments
Unlike other microneedling methods or systems, Vivace RF and Morpheus8 Microneedling is a highly customizable procedure. After examining your skin, a trained specialist will utilize specific settings for the system, such as the needle depth. This makes it a suitable and effective treatment for a wide range of patients.
Short Treatments and Minimal Recovery
Vivace RF and Morpheus8 Microneedling treatment is usually completed through a series of sessions to reach the clients goal result. Each of these sessions typically takes just over an hour, with 45 minutes of actual treatment time.
After treatment, recovery is very minimal. It’s normal to have some redness and tenderness in the treatment area, which most patients describe as similar to a sunburn. There isn’t any downtime associated with recovery, and you can return to normal activities if you choose.

Our lives tend to be busier now than ever before, but that doesn’t mean you need to cut corners when it comes to your looks and how confident you feel. Saving time on your beauty routine in the summer is essential for getting out of the door faster and enjoying your day in the sun. Here are a few summer time-saving tips that will make this your most gorgeous season yet.
#1: Laser hair removal
If you take the time to remove unwanted hair every morning or evening with a razor, then you should check out laser hair removal. You’ll be able to leave at a moments notice and not have to worry about missing spots or to leave an unsightly cut by your ankles. Take the fuss out of your daily routine and get rid of hair on your legs, back, face, and beyond for good.
#2: Remove clutter on your counter
Pay attention to your bathroom counter and start taking inventory on what you really use throughout the week and what is just sitting there collecting dust. You’ll be surprised how much space and time you can save when you only have the necessities ready for you each morning.
You can also find smaller containers for items like cotton balls and swabs so that you don’t continually have to go to a larger cabinet for those items or leave the entire box on the counter. Shot or champagne glasses are great for Q-tips, and mason jars or old candle containers with lids are perfect for cotton balls.
#3: Give your hair a summer cut
If you find that you continually struggle with your hair in the summer, then check out a few summer styles that are a bit shorter and easier to manage. If you love long locks, then test out some flowing summer hats that are both fashionable, fun to wear, and can give you a little sun coverage.
#4:Use products that serve many purposes
If you wake up every day and have a ten-step process for your daily facial routine, then it’s time to cut a few steps out. Make sure that your moisturizer already has an SPF and cut out any unnecessary practices that you always put off until the morning, but could do at night.
#5: Use downtime wisely
When you’re sitting at home watching a favorite TV marathon, go ahead and have a spa night. You’ll be amazed how quickly a manicure, pedicure, and facial will go by, and in the morning, you can skip those beauty tasks and get out the door a little faster.
Don’t waste any more time this summer on your beauty routine. Give the pros at Laser Skin & Wellness a call at 561-641-9490 or come by and visit us in Lake Worth or Palm Beach Gardens. We can’t wait to get the summer started out right and with more time on our hands to enjoy the fun parts!
The way your skin looks can reflect the confidence you have when you walk into a room. When you aren’t happy with your appearance, then you may find yourself timid and avoiding social activities like parties and first dates. In fact, you might even change your wardrobe and makeup to cover up those troubles spots. However, there is a better way. Dermapen results improve your skin, and the treatment requires little to no downtime.
#1: Skin rejuvenation
Micro-needling techniques have been proven to tighten skin and lift it so that you can enjoy a more youthful look. The Dermapen cost will vary depending on the areas that you want to target, and you can speak with an expert at Laser Skin & Wellness about your goals and how many treatments will be right for you.
#2: Reduces the look of stretch marks and scars
Stretch marks and scars can be an annoyance, and they can pop up after weight gain, pregnancy, and other changes that your body has gone through. Because the treatment promotes the growth of collagen and elastin, your body will naturally heal and return the skin back to a younger-looking state.
#3: Provides pore minimization
If you suffer from oversized pores, then you’ve probably tried different creams and techniques to minimize the size of them. And in the end, you may have even spent more money than the Dermapen price would be. You can begin with a light treatment the first time, and then as you see the Dermapen results, you can decide with the help of an expert how often you should return for another treatment. Some people find coming once every two years is plenty, while other prefer to get the treatment every year.
#4: Reduces deep wrinkles and fine lines
When you have deep wrinkles that can form in places like the forehead and around the mouth, it can be distracting and a trouble spot that you’re continually working to improve. Dermapen treatments are an ideal way to target and reduce the looks of these areas, and keep them looking fantastic for a long time.
#5: Clears up melasma and hyperpigmentation
Many people think that they just have to deal with hyperpigmentation and melasma, but when you bring in the experts, you’ll discover that these areas can be corrected and cleared up. Ask the experts to see before and after images if you want to get a better idea of what to expect from Dermapen results and the lasting effect they have.
If you’re ready to learn more about Dermapen results, then contact us today for a free consultation! We’ll guide you through the process and answer any questions that you have. The professionals at Laser Skin & Wellness have experience with the Dermapen treatment and always put your health and happiness first.

It’s that perfect time of year to treat ourselves to a day at the spa for facial fillers so that we get that youthful and fresh looking skin for those holiday gatherings. Not only will your skin look like you’ve had years taken off, but you’ll also notice makeup applications will be smoother than ever, leaving you with an even more spectacular appearance. However, most women find that without makeup, they still get to enjoy that seamless look of smooth facial skin. If you want to treat yourself to facial fillers in Lake Worth (or treat a friend), then here are four factors to help you choose the right one for you.
#1:Think about where you want to see results
There are a few different options for facial fillers, and some of them will target a specific area such as around the eyes, the mouth, the forehead, the cheeks, and you’ll want to ask the experts at Laser Skin & Wellness about the best selection for you. Some of the facial fillers in West Palm Beach and the surrounding areas (such as Juvederm®) will be able to reduce the appearance of fine lines in multiple places on the face, while others will be pinpointed (such as Kybella®) and target the skin under the chin.
#2: Find out the lasting qualities of the facial filler
Different fillers will give you different amounts of longevity, so if you hope to see the results last over a year and even two years, then you’ll want to select the filler that has the ability to achieve those results. Of course, when choosing a facial filler in Boynton Beach, you’ll want to keep your goals realistic and speak with a professional about how long you expect them to last so they can guide you towards the one that is most suited for you.
#3:Ask about downtime and ingredients
Most facial fillers that are used in Florida will not require any downtime and will provide you with fast results, but you shouldn’t assume this from every filler available. Take the time to learn more about how fast the results are and what is used to create the volume to ensure you don’t have allergies.
#4: Select professionals that have experience and knowledge
Your results will depend heavily on the expert that is applying the facial fillers because it takes precision, training, and the technician’s undivided attention to gain the natural and seamless results that you want. If you have any questions about facial fillers in Palm Beach Gardens and the surrounding locations, then reach out to the experts at Laser Skin & Wellness and schedule a free consultation by calling 561-641-9490 or simply filling out the contact form online. We look forward to hearing from, and be sure you take advantage of our filler specials over the holiday season!
