The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
Skin Deep wields an arsenal of high-tech exterior enhancers to solve an array of aesthetic conundrums. Laser hair reduction quickly eliminates unwanted down from fur-festooned body parts with the help of a Lumenis LightSheer Duet machine. The procedure starts with a thorough cleaning of the relevant area to remove dirt and stubborn body barnacles, after which the laser takes aim at the offending follicles, vaporizing the carbon particles in hair-growing glands while leaving surrounding cells untouched. Because the laser acts selectively, targeting only active hair follicles, there is very little skin irritation and no need for recovery time, unlike hair removal conducted via lawn mower. The treatment is effective for darker skin types that may be ineligible for other types of laser therapy. Optimal efficacy is usually reached after five to seven treatments, though this may vary depending on the density of the hair, skin tone, and each follicle’s emotional readiness to accept early retirement. Customers should shave the target area prior to their appointment.
True to its name, Fresh Start Skincare & Laser Tattoo Removal Specialists provides specialized skincare treatments and safely, permanently remove tattoos. Technicians certified by the National Laser Institute clear away unwanted tattoos with lasers that are gentle enough to leave skin undamaged but strong enough to break down even stubborn ink colors such as green, blue, and black.
On the skincare side, staffers perform treatments that can take years off the face. Microdermabrasion and microneedling treatments restore a youthful glow to skin, and Hydrafacial treatments use water to cleanse the skin and gently improve its texture. Other services include spider-vein removal treatments and age-defying dermal fillers.
Maintaining a client's complexion requires a keen aesthetic eye?but access to cutting-edge, medical-grade technology certainly helps as well. At Melrose MedSpa, the staff members possess the skill and the equipment needed to minimize the signs of aging skin, such as wrinkles, and sun damage. Dr. Canan Avunduk?a board-certified physician with more than 30 years of experience?personally administers every cosmetic injection.
Along with fillers, the clinic employs laser systems to address a wide range of aesthetic conditions. The aestheticians use focused pulses of laser light to fade unwanted tattoos and hyperpigmentation and improve skin's tone by stimulating collagen production. Other treatments might incorporate vitamin-rich serums or radio frequency energy to treat complexions. Beyond the face, Melrose MedSpa also offers nonsurgical, body-contouring procedures that target stubborn fat deposits with Coolsculpting and Venus Legacy.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
Working as a laser hair-removal specialist, Carmen Vanderheiden heard a common sentiment from the clients who had tattoos: "Please, hit it. I want it gone." The Tataway founder told the Back Bay Patch that as many as 80% of these tattooed clients asked her not to shield their ink from the hair-zapping laser. Since opening her tattoo-removal parlor, Vanderheiden has found out why, listening keenly to the story beneath each inky regret. Some clients have told her that they're tired of a tattoo's design or its placement on their body. Others have confided that the tattoo feels like a stain from some painful time in their life.
These stories make no difference to Tataway's tattoo-removal chart. During free consultations, the clinically published Kirby-Desai scale tells Vanderheiden the number of laser treatments each client can expect based on skin type, lifestyle, the tattoo's pigments, location, and number of spelling errors. After each treatment, topical ointments and sterile dressing help sooth the skin and prevent infection.
