MedSpa Quiz: Laser vs. Injectibles. Which treatment is right for you? (Visit)
Category: skin tightening
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.

If you’re looking for a way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face, neck, or decolletage, but are wary of treatments involving incisions or needles, Sofwave may be perfect for you.
This FDA-approved device doesn’t use laser energy or microneedles to rebuild collagen, rather, it utilizes ultrasound energy for a treatment that works on all skin types and colors.
How Sofwave Works
It’s known that treatments for wrinkles and fine lines that rely on stimulating collagen production need to affect the mid-dermis, specifically at a depth of 1.5 millimeters below the surface. Some treatments do this chemically, others with light energy, and Sofwave, with ultrasound energy.
The Sofwave handpiece creates channels of heat energy at 1.5 mm below the skin that stimulate the body’s healing response and collagen production, a process called neocollagenesis. This results in a gradual and significant skin tightening effect that can erase fine lines and provide you with a full facial refresh.
Who is Sofwave For?
Simply put, Sofwave is for anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of mild to moderate facial wrinkles. Because it’s not a light-based treatment like IPL or fractional lasers, it is safe on all skin types. There’s no age restrictions either, as people begin losing collagen in the face as early as age 20, meaning there’s no wrong time to re-start that process with Sofwave.
What to Expect From Sofwave Treatment
During your appointment at Laser Skin and Wellness, we’ll first apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. As Sofwave warms the tissue beneath the skin, it can be slightly uncomfortable, which is mitigated by the cream and Sofwave’s cooling tip.
Depending on the size of the area being treated, Sofwave appointments last around 30 minutes and have no side effects, meaning you can get on with the rest of your day immediately after the treatment is over.
Does Sofwave Really Work?
Yes! As an FDA-approved therapy for skin tightening, multiple studies involving dozens of participants at several treatment centers have found that over 70% of participants were satisfied with their results and said they felt either improved or very much improved.
As a collagen stimulator, this treatment can take time to show results as the body uses its own resources to reduce wrinkles. In studies, it was found that patients saw substantial improvement after a single treatment within three months. Although no procedure or device will halt the process of aging, you will still enjoy the benefits of Sofwave for months or even years after they become apparent.

At Laser Skin & Wellness, we have recently added a new nonsurgical treatment called the Plasma Pen. The Plasma Pen is one of the most advanced, noninvasive skin tightening devices on the market. It can best be used in areas that we can not use a laser and improve sagging without the need for surgery. This new skin rejuvenation treatment is helping our team treat patients more effectively.
Benefits of the Plasma Pen
The aging process reduces the amount of collagen produced and causes the dermal layer to thin, this leads to wrinkled, sagging skin. The Plasma pen is designed to reverse this process and dramatically repair the skin to reduce the appearance of aging signs. Plasma Pen treatment is versatile and effective for treating numerous concerns, such as:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Crow’s Feet around the eyes
Loose skin around upper and lower eyelids
Plasma Pen vs. Plastic Surgery
Unlike plastic surgery treatments, the plasma pen does not require scalpels, stitches, or sutures because it is noninvasive and very low risk. This treatment is so gentle that it does not even require an injectable anesthetic. Also, the Plasma Pen is the only treatment that can be performed on the eyelids outside of plastic surgery. Patients can return to work the next day after treatment as there are minimal side effects and short recovery time.
How does Plasma Pen work?
The Plasma Pen device creates nitrogen plasma gas. During the treatment, the energy collects on the surface of the barrier and a gaseous flash of ionized plasma gas is safely released from about 1mm above the skin. This transfers to the epidermal layer of skin to create superficial trauma and plasma fibroblasts, which in turn results in impressive skin tightening and rejuvenation.
Treatment Options With the Plasma Pen
At Laser Skin & Wellness, we believe in offering our patients effective, quality care, the Plasma Pen is a part of that. There are many areas that can be treated with the Plasma Pen including the upper face, mid-face, lower face, and more but we mostly recommend the Plasma Pen for loose sagging upper and lower eyelids. We have many lasers to address all areas of the face and body, but Plasma Pen is the only device that can safely and effectly treat the eye area without surgery.
Request a Plasma Pen Consultation
If you have started to notice aging signs or have skin concerns, the Plasma Pen may be able to benefit you. The best way to know if you are a good candidate for this innovative treatment is by speaking with our team at Laser Skin & Wellness in Palm Beach Gardens and Lake Worth, FL. The consultation is complimentary and we will show you impressive before and after photos. To make an appointment call or text us at (561) 641-9490 or by filling out an online form.
Cosmetic surgery is a continually changing field with new procedures and treatments being available each year. One of the most popular methods of cosmetic treatment is with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that rejuvenate the skin by treating aging signs such as wrinkles and lost volume. Sculptra® is an injectable volumizing product that is very different from dermal fillers and was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA. For the past 10 years, our team at Laser Skin & Wellness has been offering Sculptra® to our patients who wish to revamp their skin without the need for surgery.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable product that helps to stimulate collagen for long-lasting results. The main ingredient in Sculptra® is poly-L-lactic acid which is classified as a collagen stimulator. This helps the skin look tighter, smoother, and firmer. You can enjoy the results from Sculptra® for up to two years or longer. Sculptra® is injected into the skin to diminish wrinkles, fine lines, and to restore fullness to aged skin. Some immediate results will be noticeable, but it can take a few months to see the most dramatic results as collagen production is rebuilding.
Targeted Areas for Sculptra®
Sculptra® is used for facial wrinkles and folds but it can also assist with hollow areas such as the temples. The Laser Skin & Wellness team will map out points of injection on your face to suit your concerns and improve your skin’s appearance. The total treatment time for Sculptra® is between 40 and 60 minutes to complete.
How Much Sculptra® will I need?
For the best results, most patients receive 2 to 3 treatments spaced over 4-6 month period. One vial per decade of life is typically the recommended protocol. For instance, a 40 year old patient would need a total of 4 vials, split into two treatments of 2 vials each, with 2 months in-between treatments. Then we recommend the Beauty Club for monthly treatments to maintain results and re-evaluation yearly.
Why Sculptra® over Dermal Fillers?
Patients love this treatment because of the beautiful, natural, long-lasting results and there is no downtime associated with the treatment. You can get right back to your day as soon as you leave the office except for heavy gym workouts for a few days. Some redness and swelling might be present for a few hours after Sculptra® injections. The big difference between Sculptra® and dermal fillers is that Sculptra® stimulates your own collagen and dermal fillers “fill” an area instantly and last for 9-12 months.

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.

Menopause is a natural part of aging that can be both beautiful and challenging. One of the most common reasons that women have menopause sex pain is because hormone levels will reduce and shift, and this can cause vaginal tissue to become dry and thin. During intercourse, the vagina won’t have the elasticity or natural lubrication it once did, and this can cause painful sex. Menopause does not have to be painful or force you to become abstinent when you involve the professionals at a medical spa, and here are a few ways to relieve the pain and enjoy a healthy sex life again.
Begin with a free consultation to learn more about your options
There are some excellent vaginal rejuvenation treatments in Palm Beach Gardens to learn about if you go through painful sex after menopause, and you can reach out to our specialists to find out more about Juliet – The Feminine Laser. The vaginal rejuvenation treatment will improve the condition of the mucosa, and you will begin to notice that you regain the lubrication, plumpness, and elasticity that you once enjoyed. It is a popular choice because it is non-surgical and is virtually pain-free, and only takes a few days to recovery from the process.
Have an open conversation with your doctor
You should not be bashful when speaking with your doctor in West Palm Beach about menopause painful sex. There are a few different reasons this can occur, and you want to make sure that you address the right issue. The professionals at Laser Skin & Wellness will take into account your medical history and make sure that you are a good candidate for treatments like the Juliet Feminine Laser. If there is another health problem that is causing uncomfortable intercourse beyond menopause, we will discuss these with you discreetly.
Consider your mood during intercourse
If you find that you are anxious during sex and fear that it may be painful because it has been in the past, then this can cause you to tighten your muscles, which only adds to the dryness. Relaxing your muscles is an important part of the process, and suffering from depression or a lot of stress can also have an impact on your sex life.
Here are a few other tips to relieve menopause painful sex
Once you have talked with a professional about your options for feminine lasers, there are a few other things you can do to improve the way your vagina feels during sex. You can use a lubricant to improve the moisture levels as well as spending more time on foreplay, so your body starts to produce wetness naturally. You should also be mindful of the soaps you use when bathing to ensure they aren’t drying you out.
Everyone loves a good spa night at home when you create skin remedies using natural products or buy soothing creams and gels that are intended to turn back time and give your skin a boost. However, when you need a skin tightening treatment that gets you the best results, it’s essential that you bring in the specialists. Natural aging, changes in your body such as pregnancies, and extreme weight loss can leave the skin loose in a way that home methods and fun spa nights simply can’t correct. Here are a few reasons why bringing in the skin tightening professionals is the way to go if you want youthful and tight skin.
Access to premium skin tightening equipment
If you want to notice skin that is firmer and younger looking, then you’ll need access to state of the art skin tightening equipment. The professionals at Laser Skin & Wellness utilize equipment such as Titan™ because the laser is effective in stimulating new collagen growth, and it’s has proven results for tightening the skin in multiple areas around the body. If you live in West Palm Beach or the surrounding areas, then you know the summer months are fun to wear sundresses and bathing suits. And if you want your skin to be tight and firm for the season, then you’ll need equipment that is designed to work with your natural body and is preferred by specialists.
Extensive training with the skin tightening procedure
Beyond having advanced equipment for a skin tightening treatment, you must have someone by your side that has training and experience with it. You don’t want to risk harming your skin or getting inconsistent outcomes because the person performing the procedure doesn’t have the in-depth knowledge and skills necessary to achieve optimal tightness.
Results that you can see and afford
If you’ve ever done home treatments for tightening your skin, you may find yourself looking in the mirror every day for the results to see no change. However, when you speak with the professionals about your goals, they’ll be able to provide you with skin tightening treatments that will give you noticeable results. In fact, other people will even notice and compliment you! Plus, the skin tightening cost is affordable, and you’ll find you save money and time because you won’t have to buy and apply so many creams throughout the day.

One of the primary reasons PRP injections for sexual dysfunction were thought of was due to the wide variety of treatments and procedures available for men, and very few for women. The result of this realization is the noninvasive O-shot that women have found to be exceptional when it comes to rejuvenating their vaginal area.
The process involves removing the platelet-rich plasma from your own blood and then injecting into the trouble spots of the vagina. The growth of new cells will be stimulated, and new tissue will develop, and this will give women a more sensitive and pleasurable experience. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself today to find out if you could benefit from PRP injections.
Do you suffer from sexual dysfunction?
If you have trouble enjoying intercourse due to lack of ability to have an orgasm or because of dryness issues, then it can have an adverse impact on your relationship. Because PRP injections for sexual dysfunction promote new tissue to grow, you’ll discover that the vaginal wall and clitoris regain the moisture levels and feelings that you once had when you were younger. This can make the act of intercourse much more exciting and fun, thus rejuvenating more than your vaginal area, but your relationship!
Do you have trouble with urinary incontinence?
Having urinary continence can be difficult for so many women because leaks can happen when you sneeze, laugh, cough, and you never know when they are coming. PRP injections can help you gain more control over these incidents so that you can focus on what’s in front of you instead of what is happening to your body. Not only will you notice the improvement in incontinence, but you’ll get to enjoy the other benefits that PRP injections provide.
Is intercourse painful for you?
If you find that sexual activity is painful, then speak with a professional at Laser Skin & Wellness about your options. This isn’t an issue that you should ignore or just accept happens over time. PRP injections for painful intercourse give you quick results that have lasting qualities. Many women have found that this treatment is wonderful when they have gone through menopause and have uncomfortable symptoms. However, even young women have found the results to improve their sex lives.
