If you or someone you know is suffering from hair loss, you know how that can take a toll on someone’s self-esteem first hand. The process can be frustrating and embarrassing, and it may feel like there is nothing you can do about it. Maybe you have tried at home remedies or solutions, but you have been unsuccessful at seeing results. If you yourself are suffering from hair loss and are wondering about hair restoration options in San Diego, it may be time to seek professional care.
Aging skin can become brittle, dull in appearance, and with more prominent discolorations such as acne or injury scars, stretch marks, age spots, and freckles. This is especially true when the skin is subjected to much exposure to the sun. One simple way to rejuvenate the skin and improve the appearance of blemishes is by performing intense pulsed light therapy. The newer devices now on the market can be finely calibrated to treat the problem areas without damaging the adjacent tissues. The M22 system is really four devices in one. It works as a broadband light delivery system, and it can also be used as a resurfacing instrument. We find this instrument quite versatile, and we oftentimes recommend the treatment of lesions, melasma, rosacea, acne scars, age spots, and even fine wrinkles using the M22 system when we discuss skin imperfections with our clients.
Intense pulsed light, or IPL, is an alternative to the more aggressive laser resurfacing treatment. Without ablating the epidermal layer, IPL treats the lower dermal tissues and can correct such problems as fine wrinkles, blemishes, and other discolorations. It’s considered a gentler treatment than traditional fractional laser resurfacing, and the results are generally long-lasting. Until recently, IPL was not a suitable treatment for those individuals with darker skin. That’s because the frequencies of light energy used in IPL laser treatment are absorbed by darker tissues. Today, however, a greater number of individuals can benefit from IPL laser treatments because the newer instruments can be more finely calibrated. To learn more, schedule a consultation with us.
All of us have times when we feel that our energy levels are less than ideal. It could be that we are going through an exceptionally stressful time in life, or it could be that work is requiring a lot more of us than we are accustomed to. In most cases, dips in energy levels of these sorts are relatively temporary. They are not indicative of a more serious health issue that needs to be addressed. At times, we may find ourselves dealing with more serious long-term energy loss.
You smile or frown, and suddenly your face is full of tiny lines. These dynamic wrinkles can certainly make you look older than you really are, but what can you do about them? Facial skin repositioning is something you’re not considering yet, and most of the peel treatments and resurfacing techniques can discolor your skin in a negative way.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technique used to rejuvenate the skin. The introduction of non-coherent light energy stimulates tissue replacement by targeting the darker cells in the lower dermal layers. By constricting capillaries and causing slight damage to unhealthy cells, IPL gently but efficiently improves the overall skin tone and texture. The new M22 IPL device can restore sun-damaged skin to a more youthful, glowing condition. This instrument is an all-in-one device that can target various skin problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, prominent scarring, and even melasma. We highly recommend this treatment for our clients who are concerned about how sun damage to the skin is resulting in darkened areas and brittleness.

When you want extra smooth skin, even in the morning when you wake up, you can get laser hair removal. This process has become highly popular and can save you from having to shave or wax. It also avoids having the discomfort that other methods are known for.
HydraFacial MD® is a non-abrasive technique that can be used to brighten and hydrate the skin, clear out the pores and remove the layer of dead skin.

The majority of the individuals in San Diego receiving this treatment find it more effective than many other cosmetic treatments.
