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.

Deep Acne Scars Be Gone – Pixel Fractional CO2 Laser

Posted by on May 16, 2014 | 27 comments

Have you been living a life trying to cover your acne scars with heavy make-up, applying different exfoliating creams and solutions but don’t seem to be helping you? Afraid of using Laser treatments because of its ablative properties and long down time duration? The battle against acne scars has been going on for generations now and boy, was that not ending!   Also, a lot of Korean and China brand machines have been proliferating the aesthetic market, unfortunately claiming to give the desired effect at a lower cost when in fact it is really not the case. With each different laser, there are potentially different results, which can lead to inaccuracy and discouragement to the masses if the laser being used is not clarified.  This is why it is important to do research on the brand of the machine, background of the clinic and experience of the operator or the dermatologist. With Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic’s  latest offering, treatment for deep acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles need not be expensive.  Our Pixel Fractional CO2 Laser  (10600 nm wavelength) is different from Pixel Erbium with 2940 nm wavelength that other clinics offer.  What we are using is a medical grade, stand alone unit that is more effective in giving results. Do check the photo of the machine for easy reference. Allow me to show first how Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment works. From the word “Fractional” and “Pixel”, the laser light passes through the patented Pixel® micro optics lens array to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels.   The Fractional CO2 Effect ü  It creates an ablative and thermal effect in only these channels – a micro-injury – without disturbing the surrounding tissue. ü  These micro-injury sites (about 15-20 percent of the treatment area) start the process of healing. ü  The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site is what promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery.   Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing treatments have been widely used nowadays since unlike topical creams, laser skin resurfacing works deep in the underlying tissues reduce the appearance of acne scarring. This popular and long accepted technology has normally been ablative; meaning that some portion of the top layer of skin is deliberately damaged. Some people, however, wish to avoid all ablative procedures but with Pixel Perfect skin resurfacing, you’ll achieve dramatic results similar to traditional CO2 while minimizing long-term discomfort and the risk of complications. Pixel Fractional CO2 Laser significantly improves the tone and texture of skin in one treatment with minimal downtime and faster healing – patients usually return to normal activities within three to seven days. Pixel Fractional CO2 Laser has a lower risk of complications compared to traditional CO2 laser resurfacing with a short learning curve. What’s more, the Impact ITED hand piece will ensure 100% absorption of your trusted topical cream for complete and effective absorption. Expect lightening and improvement of skin color and texture with the use of Impact ITED only from the Alma Lasers. This is something that other Fractional CO2 Laser does not offer. Did I mention that this is an FDA Approved machine? So be more confident, smoothen...

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.
