The Titan Skin Tightening treatment at our office is a great nonsurgical solution that can help you achieve a more youthful looking you! Read on to learn more about this treatment option.

The Titan Treatment

This treatment can be used on many areas of the body to tighten the skin, including the face, jowls, neck, and under the chin.

Individuals who are looking to achieve tighter, younger-looking skin can often benefit from this treatment. However, individuals who are pregnant or who have been on Accutane within the last three months should not receive this treatment.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

The Titan uses safe infrared light technology to gently heat the skin below the surface, stimulating collagen production and immediate contraction. After the procedure, collagen growth continues, resulting in smoother, more youthful skin over time. The number of treatments needed will vary, however, three treatments over a three-month period are often recommended. Once treatment usually takes about 60 minutes to complete.

Results

Results are gradual over two to three months. Benefits can last up to two years, however, maintenance treatments are recommended.

EMSCULPT®: Sculpt Your Holiday Body

If you’re looking to make a big impression this holiday season, then Emsculpt might be the best option for you. This new non-surgical treatment can simultaneously burn fat and tone muscle with just a few treatments, making it the perfect complement to your healthy lifestyle. Here are some of the greatest benefits of this effective treatment.

Two-for-one results

Although there are many different body sculpting technologies out there, Emsculpt provides the most effective and desirable results. It not only reduces fat and enhances contours, but it’s the only system that simultaneously builds and tones muscle at the same time. The best part is that this occurs with only a few treatments, so it’s a great option for patients looking to put the finishing touches on their weight loss goals or jumpstart a new, healthy lifestyle.

Painless treatment

Although the technique might sound scary, Emsculpt is completely painless and only causes the same achiness as an extended exercise session. Emsculpt works by sending electromagnetic energy to the muscle, causing it to contract harder than it could achieve on its own. This technique causes the muscle to build mass to adapt to the contraction and shed fat at the same time. This means you can enjoy some quiet time as you sculpt and tone your figure without the hassle.

Fewer treatment sessions

The biggest benefit of Emsculpt is that most patients see results with only a few treatment sessions. We usually recommend patients undergo a series of four treatments at twice a week, with touch-up sessions every few months to maintain great results. This offers huge benefits over other body sculpting treatments which can require far more treatment sessions spaced further apart. With the holidays coming up, Emsculpt can sculpt your fatty areas and build muscle without anyone else knowing.

Emsculpt is one of the best options when it comes to refining and toning your body. The best way to begin planning your Emsculpt treatment package is by contacting our Lake Worth and Palm Beach Gardens offices to schedule a consultation by calling or filling out our online form.

What You Should Know About EMSCULPT

There are many different body sculpting treatments out there that don’t require surgery, so it can seem overwhelming trying to pick the right one for you. There are some things you should know about EMSCULPT, though, because it’s one of the best options available when it comes to achieving your ideal body.

What is EMSCULPT?

EMSCULPT is a non-surgical body sculpting treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscles, causing them to contract. This technique creates contraction beyond what the body can achieve on its own, causing the muscle to adapt by building mass and burning fat. This means EMSCULPT has benefits beyond traditional body sculpting systems, which only focus on reducing fatty areas. Because of this, EMSCULPT can be the perfect treatment to complement your diet and exercise routine for boosted results.

What areas can I treat?

EMSCULPT is FDA-approved for use on the stomach and buttocks, which are areas that commonly experience fatty deposits and weakened muscle mass. EMSCULPT can have great benefits in treating the abdomen by strengthening the core muscles, leading to greater support and all-around strength. It can also have the same effect as a tummy tuck procedure in tightening loosened muscles as a result of pregnancy or weight gain. Additionally, EMSCULPT is sometimes known as the non-surgical butt lift, since it can tighten and tone the buttocks while also reducing fat.

What is treatment like?

EMSCULPT requires only a few painless treatment sessions in order to see best results. Most patients undergo two treatment sessions for two weeks, with additional maintenance treatments around a few months later. Many patients see results within the first few treatments, even. EMSCULPT is not painful, and only feels like a mild muscle contraction when the nodes are applied to the skin. Afterwards, many patients report feeling like they’ve undergone an intense workout. Treatment sessions only take around thirty minutes, and many patients choose to catch up on their book or show. After treatment, you won’t need any downtime.

EMSCULPT is one of the greatest new innovations in the non-surgical treatment market. To see what EMSCULPT can do for you, schedule a consultation with our expert technicians by contacting our offices.

What to Know About Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser techniques have become one of the most effective ways to remove unwanted tattoos. This is because new and profound techniques for tattoo removal have been developed over the years, like combination laser treatments, multi-pass treatments, and picosecond lasers. Laser tattoo removal can sound highly technical, but there are a few things to know about how it works and what it can do for you.

The Consultation Process

Your consultation is one of the most important steps of your tattoo removal process, and this can allow your specialist to plan the right treatment for you. Laser tattoo removal can require different techniques and technology depending on your unique tattoo, so it’s important to establish what will work best in getting the results you want. Things to consider about your tattoo are its colors, age, and size. It’s also important to establish any medical concerns, skin conditions, and skin product use that might prevent the treatment from being effective.

How It Works

There are many different effective lasers that can accomplish great results, but Laser Skin & Wellness has found the Enlighten™ by Cutera to best fit the needs of our patients. This system is highly versatile and is effective for a wide range of colors and pigment. This treatment works by applying the laser energy to the tattoo, which applies acoustic shockwaves to the pigment. This breaks down the pigment into smaller chunks, which allows your body to safely absorb them. This energy pulses at two different speeds, making it more effective at quickly and effectively breaking down pigment.

The Treatment Process

Despite the newest developments in laser techniques, most patients still require a package of treatments before seeing substantial results. This is simply because of the speed at which your body absorbs the pigment, and multiple sessions can help speed this process along. In most cases, treatments should be spaced 6-8 weeks apart in order to allow your skin time to rest between treatments. During your consultation, your specialist can estimate the number of treatments you’ll need based on your unique tattoo and goals.

The best way to learn about your options with laser tattoo removal is through a consultation with our laser specialists. Request an appointment through our online form or contact our office to get in touch with our patient coordinators who can schedule a consultation that works best for you.

Why Choose Laser Tattoo Removal?

Why Choose Laser Tattoo Removal?

At Laser Skin & Wellness, we know how difficult it can be to live with an unwanted tattoo, especially if it’s just too hard to cover up. Laser tattoo removal is one of the best ways to gradually remove unwanted tattoos, but it’s worth noting that there are other, less effective options. Exploring your options is an important part of your treatment process, so here’s what you should know about choosing laser tattoo removal over other alternatives.

Skin Treatments

Since tattoos are buried deep in the skin, certain skin treatments can often reach deep enough to affect the pigment. However, this can come with risk. Techniques like dermabrasion or chemical peels exfoliate away the layers of skin and can require extensive downtime and healing, which can come with side effects like hyperpigmentation, scarring, or the risk of infection. Depending on the location of your tattoo, it can also be damaging to sensitive skin or skin that hosts a tattoo that is old and sunken-in. These treatments can also be painful and require a local anesthetic.

Surgical Methods

Surgical excision is one method that can be used, although it’s not ideal if you’re prone to scarring or unable to undergo surgery. Although it can produce immediate results, larger tattoos can require extensive grafts in order to replace the skin that is excised during the surgery. Surgical removal is not normally recommended now that other alternatives exist.

Skincare Products

Certain products exist that promise gradual tattoo removal through bleaching the skin, but have no FDA approval, regulation, or recommendation. In many cases, it’s impossible to control the product’s bleaching method and this can result in the surrounding area being bleached as well. Because this technique happens gradually, it can require extensive use for months or years.

Cover-ups

Some patients opt for a cover-up, which usually consists of a new, better tattoo placed over the existing one. This can be a great option, but requires a skilled (usually expensive) tattoo artist who specializes in cover-ups and can effectively conceal the existing one. When opting for a cover-up, patients may still need to undergo a lightening treatment on the existing tattoo beforehand. For patients looking to simply remove their tattoo and leave the skin clear, a cover-up may not be an option.

Although there are plenty of options, laser tattoo removal still remains the most effective one. It produces extensive tattoo lightening with only a few painless treatments that don’t cause damage to the skin or require recovery. To see what else laser tattoo removal can do for you, contact our office to schedule a consultation with our laser specialists.

Learning More About the Keto Diet

There has been a lot of recent hype around the ketogenic diet but in fact, ketogenesis has been used for over 100 years to treat patients with uncontrollable epileptic seizures.
