Posted by on Mar 25, 2017 | 1 comment

Skin House has always been an advocate of continuous learning.  A couple of weeks back, we were invited to update our knowledge and maximize the potential of our Revlite machine. Q-switched Nd:Yag laser have shown to be an effective treatment for acne scars and, in some cases, even acne.   With proper settings and understanding of what the machine can do, the treatment can go significantly positive for the patient. Revlite is a non ablative laser that uses photoacoustic technology pulse that heats the skin, causing enough damage to encourage the healing response of the skin.  The localized thermal damage causes an increase in the production of collagen and improves the appearance of scars. The treatment is basically painless. And the procedure can be performed for almost any skin type even patients with active acne.  Beyond reducing the appearance of the acne scars, Revlite lessens acne growth, and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  The skin will look incredibly younger and more vibrant. We believe in providing the best service at reasonable prices.  We keep ourselves up-to-date with what’s hot and what’s not.  Soon, as an advocate in looking fresh in the morning even without makeup, we will be introducing semi-permanent makeup – 6D eyebrow embroidery or powder effect, eyeliner, and lip embroidery – all at impeccable style and reasonable prices.

Unlike other laser hair removal machines, GentleMax Pro has a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) that provides consistent, epidermal cooling and unparalleled comfort for the patients. DCD prepares skin for treatment by selectively spraying the upper layers (or epidermis) with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable spray/delay durations, milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD’s unique design provides excellent visibility throughout the entire process, is operator independent, and will provide the same epidermal protection no matter how fast the laser is fired. This balances the heat so there is not much discomfort.  With this amazing technology, there won’t be any need for cooling gel, which tends to be a little messy when doing Full Bikini or Brazilian and Legs.  Treatment for lower legs only takes about 30 minutes, including the spot test, which takes up around 3 to 5 minutes. Imagine, underarm laser only takes around 10 minutes?  You’re in and you can just go out to go about your merry ways.  Furthermore, the FDA has approved GentleMax Pro for permanent hair reduction.   Just to give an overview: Alexandrite also known as GenteLase is a very powerful near infrared laser hair removal machine for patients with lighter skin types I-III.

BOTOX® injected to the jaw can reduce the overall size of the masseter muscle, for improved facial appearance and relaxed jaw muscles. This can be used as treatment for TMJ with advised of the Dentist. In some ethnicities like Korean and Chinese, women have a propensity to develop “squarish” or prominent jaw. Only few certified dermatologists have the skill to perform Botox in the Masseter or Jaw in a safe and effective manner.  It is best to come in for consultation and to ask the dermatologist the extent of his or her experience in doing this type of procedure.  Ask for before and after photos of previous clients.  Half of the face is usually covered or cropped for confidentiality.       * The following photos are provided for reference only.  Actual before and after photo will be shown in the clinic.  Usually 50 units are used for the jaw or masseter.

How To Improve Your Underarms 101

Posted by on Jun 29, 2012 | 32 comments

Do you still have dark underarms?  You probably still pluck, wax or shave.     Shaving is the most common method of removing hair in the underarms.  It is said that the most efficient way to shave is to always use a new razor or to follow the direction of the hair growth.  Been there, done that.  Though shaving is a cheap, quick and usually painless method to remove the hair, one also get stubble hair re-growth, scratches, irritation, razor burns, ingrown hair and often, grayish skin tone. Waxing is another common hair removal method.  This can be done at home or in a professional salon.  A potential problem withwaxing is that the pulling on the delicate skin can cause it to loosen when done on a regularly basis.  This could be uncomfortable and unsightly.  Though popular in the 90’s those who really want flawless underarm will not achieve it when removing hair this way.  Constant friction also contributes to discoloration. Again this is a temporary solution compared to underarm laser hair removal. Laser hair removal has been growing in both efficiency and popularity for several years. Laser hair removal for the underarms help to smooth out the skin and reduce hair count and thickness. The light of the laser hits the follicle and damages it which in some cases can permanently stop hair growth. A series of treatments is spaced over a number of weeks in order to destroy the hair root in all its 3 growth cycles. Hair can initially grow back, however it is thinner and lighter. Over the course of the treatment, any regrowth will be noticeably finer, sparse, and less likely to become ingrown hair. Sessions for underarm laser hair removal are quick and relatively painless. Most people who have had laser hair removal treatments agree that the improvement is tremendous.  Provided of course that you are having laser hair removal done in a reputable clinic with trained technicians, and medical grade diode laser hair removal machine.  It is important to research on the machine and background of the clinic before signing especially those who offer prices that are too good to be true. At Skin House, photos can be taken before treatment starts for future comparison.  This way, the patient can evaluate and see gradual improvement of the color and texture of the skin. It takes time to see improvement, and this will depend on the starting color and texture of the skin.  The darker the skin, the longer it will take for it to lighten.  Laser Hair Removal combined with underarm whitening will give beneficial results. Before signing up, a consultation will be done to know if the patient is a suitable candidate for the laser hair removal treatment.  If the patient gets the go signal, the procedure will take only about 15 to 20 minutes for a small area like the underarms.  A note regarding the do’s and don’ts will be provided after every visit. The causes of excessive hair growth are as follows: –   – Pregnancy –   – Hormonal Imbalances (ex. PCOS) –   – Thyroid Problems –   – Reactions to certain Medications...

Hello Laser… Goodbye Razor!

Posted by on Nov 3, 2011 | 106 comments

Hello Laser… Goodbye Razor!

Smooth and hair free skin can make you feel more comfortable and confident.  When you are happy with the way you look, you can conquer the world! Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic uses an advance diode laser hair removal machine.  It targets the hair follicles, making it extremely hard for hairs to grow back.  90% hair reduction is experienced by majority of the patients.  Usually an average of 6 to 8 sessions are necessary to reach an ideal level of hair removal.  This is because your hair grows in 3 cycles.  Some hair follicles may be stagnant during a laser hair removal session, and may seem unaffected by the laser. Some hairs may also be more resilient than others, needing more than once to zap, depending on the type, texture and density. Rest assured, this top of the line diode laser hair removal is compatible for all skin types.  Our laser technicians are also skilled and trained in choosing and rendering the correct settings for a particular skin type for a maximum overall hair reduction. Note:  Don’t wax or pluck 4 weeks before Diode laser hair removal schedule. Do not apply whitening cream for 2 weeks before Diode laser. 4 to 8 weeks interval per session.  6 to 8 sessions for permanent hair reduction. On your 2nd session, please shave the hair 1 day before coming for your treatment. Once patient stops manual hair removal like epilating, plucking, waxing and shaving, over all texture and color improves over time.  The need for additional underarm whitening treatments will be determined as patient progresses with the session. Before the Diode laser hair removal treatment, the patient will be informed about the do’s and don’ts for safe laser sessions.  It is important to note that the patient should not use any whitening or peeling product 2 weeks before and after diode laser hair removal treatments. This is important to avoid complications that may arise during or after the session.  Take note that the patient can wash his or her face, underarms or the treatment area, and take a bath provided that the water is not too hot. The patient will experience heat transferred from the machine, with tiny bursts of lights in areas with hair.  2 weeks after the procedure, some of the hairs will automatically shed with no effort. The diode laser hair removal machine at Skin House Clinic can target virtually any part of the body including underarms, upper lip, legs and even the bikini line with minor discomfort.  If you’ve been having dark underarm problems for the longest time, this is the first step to achieving that flawless (if not presentable) looking armpits.  Give yourself the gift of beauty… You deserve it! Due to the yuletide season, major discounts await new and old patients.
