The festive season is around the corner and you suddenly realize you’re totally not bikini ready, you’re not feeling yourself and you’re definitely not ready for that family Christmas photoshoot that your aunt organizes every year. Fortunately, at Artemis Vein & Aesthetic Centre we’ve got you covered.
Here are four of our top cosmetic treatments in Westminster, Co to get you ready for that festive vibe without feeling self-conscious:
You’ll definitely be bikini ready with this treatment. Lasers can reduce the number of hairs by 40% to 80% and luckily it’s not only for the bikini line but basically anywhere on the body where you have unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal Procedure:
Hair removal lasers target melanin pigment in the hair with specific wavelengths of light energy. The energy heats the hair quickly and powerfully then the heat spreads to the hair root, destroying it.
Laser hair removal Benefits:
Laser hair removal is also one of the best treatment options for people who tend to get ingrown hairs on their necks, underarms, or bikini area. It softens and shrinks the hair, preventing the hair tip from turning into the skin, and causing tender bumps, dark spots, and scars.
Laser hair removal Number of Sessions:
Years ago, you might have needed 10 sessions to combat hair growing back, but lasers have come a long way since then. These days, most people will be left hairless after an initial round of laser hair removal treatments and minimal follow-up treatments thanks to advancements in technology.
No more lines or wrinkles with this treatment and you’ll look better than ever on this year’s Christmas card. Botox injections are primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
They are also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms, excessive sweating, an overactive bladder, and a lazy eye. It may also help prevent chronic migraines.
Botox derives from C. botulinum bacteria which are present in many natural settings, including soil, lakes, forests, and intestinal tracts of mammals and fish. Manufacturers make Botox injections with very small doses of Botulinum.
The drug can temporarily paralyze muscles, which can benefit people with various muscle or nerve disorders. In order for any muscle to contract, the nerves release a chemical messenger called acetylcholine at the junction where nerve endings meet muscle cells. Acetylcholine attaches to the receptors on the muscle cells and causes the cells to contract, or shorten.
Botox injections prevent the release of acetylcholine, which stops the muscle cells from contracting. In this way, the toxin helps the muscle become less stiff.
Botox Number of Sessions:
Since Botox takes time to absorb and relax the muscle you won’t see benefits right after the procedure. But within a few days, you’ll start noticing the difference, and the effects will peak between 10-15 days. To sustain the effects of the procedure you would be needing multiple sessions, roughly every 4 months.
It has been noticed that the effects of Botox treatments can last anywhere between 3-6 months depending on the receiver’s own metabolism. It is also affected by the depth and size of the wrinkles. According to the American Board of Cosmetic surgery, Botox injections are the most popular cosmetic procedure nationwide.
You will definitely turn heads with this treatment, but be aware that the healing process takes up to seven days.
Chemical Peels Procedure:
A chemical peel is an acid solution applied to the face to remove the outermost layer or layers of the skin. The skin crusts, scales, and peels over several days. The new skin that grows in its place is softer, smoother, and has few imperfections. Chemical peels are done in our offices with appropriate lighting and ventilation.
You will be lying down in a supine position, and your eyes will be closed for the procedure with appropriate eye protection. A neutral paste may be applied in areas around your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the chemical peeling solution from pooling in those areas.
For deeper peels, a relaxing or pain medicine may be given right before the procedure. You may feel some mild tenderness while the chemical peel is on your skin. Upon completion of the procedure, a neutralizing wash or cool compress may be used on the face.
Chemical Peels After the Procedure:
Your skin will likely appear red and irritated. Deeper chemical peels may result in increased redness and swelling. It is also normal to feel some continued burning or stinging. A protective ointment such as petroleum jelly can be applied to soothe the area, and symptoms should begin to resolve within one or two weeks. Make-up can usually be worn the next day for light peels, and after a week for medium peels.
Time to Glow:
It may take a few months for the skin to fully return to normal and show complete results of the peel. Chemical peels are quick, safe, and cost-effective method for skin rejuvenation.
