Laser Hair Removal
Beautiful You brings the latest technology of pain free laser hair removal. Typically takes anywhere from 5 to 8 treatments as each person responds differently . Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Beautiful You uses the MeDioStar diode class 4 laser which uses an in motion technique which allows for gradual heating, less trauma to surrounding tissue and cooling tip for comfort. Hair needs to be present in the follicle, therefore waxing and tweezing must not be done 4 weeks prior to treatment. Hair growth occurs in phases, there are three stages: Anagen (active growth), Catagen (regression) and Telogen (resting). The laser can only target hair in the anagen stage, the hairs that are actively growing in the follicle. Approximately 15-25% of hair growth is in the active stage at the same time. This explains why multiple treatments are required to aide in the destruction of the hair in the follicle. Consultation must be done prior to any laser treatments being done. When choosing a place to get laser hair removal done, ensure you are comfortable with the technician doing the procedure and ask questions such as: How old is the laser machine? Is the person operating certified on that specific machine, ensure the technician can explain the whole procedure and what to expect before, during and after.
IPL Photorejuvenation can treat a variety of benign skin conditions. The broad spectrum of light used in ILP treatments is absorbed by the target tissue, and is then removed by the body's natural processes, providing dramatic improvements in the appearance of age spots, sun spots, sun damage, freckles, rosacea and more. IPL can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results. IPL rejuvenation can be used to treat any area of the body, most commonly the face, neck, chest and hands. Treatment is generally administered in a series of approximately 3-6 sessions, and you will see gradual improvement that yields excellent long-term results with very low risk and very minimal downtown. Consultation must be done prior to having the treatment done.
Before and After
A great treatment to combat aging, dull skin, repair damage from pigmentation issues, wrinkles & acne/scarring is chemical peels. They can be targeted to specific needs from a light peel to a deeper peel for amazing results. Most peels don't require any down time, however stronger ones can cause peeling/flaking of dull skin. Sun screen is absolutely a must when getting chemical peel treatments, even in winter. Best results are done with a series of treatments, typically every 3-4 weeks until results are achieved. Beautiful you offers a variety of peels to target individual skin type and conditions.
Dermasound Ultrasonic Facial Treatment
Better then microdermabrasion? Yes....State of the art technology that uses ultrasonic frequency for an amazing skin treatment for all skin types and conditions. The dermasound has three steps 1. exfoliates by spinning water molecules to loosen and remove dull skin cells. 2. nourishes the skin by forcing applied products deeper into the skin then just applying alone. The ultrasonic waves create temporary openings into the skin, allowing the Glymed Plus serums to penetrate deeper, 10,000 times the effectiveness of applying alone 3. delivers low levels of current to assist the stimulation of collagen and repair. Non invasive, no down time and your skin will look and feel amazing right away and keeps on improving.
DermaPlaning is a method of exfoliation using a sterile scalpel blade to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells & vellus hair (peach fuzz) to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion while also allowing skincare products to penetrate deeper. Followed by a Hydrojelly(TM) mask for added hydration.
Collagen Induction Treatment (Micro-Needling)
Stimulate collagen rebuilding with the eDermaStamp, the only micro-needling device approved by Health Canada. With an optimal number of needles, the eDermaStamp induces collagen without tearing skin tissue. Using certified medical grade precision cone shaped needles, creating micro-wounds that seal within minutes of treatment. The eDermaStamp's technology is clinically proven to reduce the look of wrinkles, tighten and tone skin, treat acne scars and stretch marks, improve skin texture and thicken the skin dermis.
How it works:
eDermaStamps micro-needles reach beyond the skin's epidermis into the dermis (the true skin), causing pinpoint bleeding. The pinpoints trigger the body's spontaneous healing response and within minutes the perforation channels close and healing begins. During this time collagen and elastin form, leaving skin noticeably thicker, more supple and younger looking.
Before and After:
Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. Today's medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical or heat energy. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers.
Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, abdomen, thighs, breasts, and legs. There are generally no permanent side effects, but sometimes a temproary, slight reddening of the skin may occur.
How many electrolysis treatments will I need?
Many factors influence hair growth, so you will need to return for several electolysis visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments in complete. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and 1 hour.
