A Fantastic New Option for Hair Removal

Getting rid of unsightly body hair is an issue that men and women are more commonly faced with now as it is societally more accepted to do so. Most ways of hair removal are costly and temporary and ultimately take up a lot of time! They can sometimes hurt also on top of all the other negative side effects! There is a revolution released from Lumenis called Lightsheer Duet hair removal. Here is an article from the Aesthetic guide about what exactly it does. Be sure to book your appointment with us today to see what it’s all about!

Lumenis, Ltd. (Yokneam, Israel) reasserted its lead-
ership in the aesthetic market with the release of
the versatile LightSheer Duet platform for laser hair
removal. Featuring two handpieces, the smaller
spot size ET delivers higher fluences with contact
cooling and the larger spot size HS (high speed)
provides lower fluences with vacuum-assist. The

ability to perform single pass treatments and no
need for external cooling make laser hair remov-
al with LightSheer Duet easier on clinicians, as
well as patients. Furthermore, the HS handpiece’s
safety, efficacy and treatment speed have been
supported by recent clinical trials.

“The fact that new technologies often choose LightSheer as the basis for comparison emphasizes that it’s such a
trusted and popular device.” 

“Harnessing the principle of selective photothermolysis for hair removal is very effec-
tive,” Dr. Halachmi stated, “but it can be somewhat difficult for patients to tolerate due
to long treatment times, and some discomfort. There is also an inherent risk in some
treatments because higher fluences translate into greater discomfort and an increased
risk of adverse events. Laser manufacturers have begun to address this problem by
developing creative technologies that deliver the laser energy in different ways, so that
the hair follicle absorbs a therapeutic level of energy but the temperature of the epider-
mis remains low and safe.”

Stem Cell Facelifts Revolutionize Cosmetic Rejuvenation!

As we age, there is less collagen in our face, there is less tone, blood vessels become weaker, wrinkles become more apparent and ultimately lead to the loss of that youthful look. Men and women have been getting face lifts for a very long time to counter that fact but there may just be a new method that does more than just lift the skin. Check out this article about what a stem cell facelift is and call us today to book an appointment!

What is the Stem Cell Facelift?

The stem cell facelift is a complete facial rejuvenation procedure without involving any surgery. The procedure avoids any incisions and the actual were lifting of the skin itself. The procedure has been performed at the Plastic Surgery Center Internationale for over four years with outstanding results.

The main function of the procedure is to restore both the youthful contour and shape of the face as well as a marked improvement in skin quality, tightness and color irregularities caused by the aging process as well as exposure to the sun and environment.

Patients who have undergone this procedure frequently avoid or markedly reduce the need for other maintenance procedures like Botox and cosmetic filler injections.

The function of the procedure is based on the regenerative capacity of a group of cells called ADULT STEM CELLS.

Of the hundred trillion cells that make up the human body, stem cells are the most important category. They are among the few cells in the body that are specialized and have the potential to become a particular cell type and replace worn and damage cells.

A large number of stem cells exist in adipose or fat tissue. When stem cells are transplanted with fat in the different parts of their body, the majority of them grown and exist in these new areas helping to form new tissue at the transplanted site.

By using the regenerative properties of stem cells along with transplanted fat, a marked improvement of survival of these tissues occurs.

What makes the stem cell facelifts unique and different from other fat transplant procedures is the fact that the abdominal fat and stem cells are mixed with a specific combination of growth factors that help both the stem cells and adipose tissues grow into the needed tissue to restore both the fat to enhance the volume of the face as well as skin elements to improve both the quality and texture of the skin.

Effects of Low Testosterone

Unfortunately, there is still a connotation that exists when it comes to women and hormones. If you say the words “hormone imbalance”, most people think of women but it is also extremely common in men. Men often let this go untreated as low testosterone levels can wreak havoc on their lives. Check out this article from WebMD about the effects low testosterone can have on your body. 

What Is Testosterone?

Testosterone may be the most notorious of hormones. It conjures up thoughts of muscles and masculinity. In fact, testosterone does fuel sex drive and muscle mass, but it also regulates mood and bone strength. When a man’s level falls below normal, a doctor may prescribe shots, gels, or patches.  But there is some debate over who needs treatment.

Aging and Testosterone Levels

A slow drop in testosterone is a normal part of aging, sometimes called “andropause” or “male menopause.” For many men, this doesn’t cause any significant problems or symptoms. Others may notice hot flashes, irritable moods, or less interest in sex.

Low Testosterone and the Body

Low testosterone can cause visible changes in some men:

  • Thinner muscles
  • Loss of body hair
  • Smaller, softer testicles
  • Larger breasts

Low Testosterone Affects Bones

You may think osteoporosis, or brittle bone disease, is a woman’s disease, but it can affect men as well. Low testosterone is a common cause. As testosterone levels fall, the bones may get thinner, weaker, and more likely to break.
