What Are the Benefits of IPL Photo Facials?

benefits. A handful of the perks that individuals gain from their IPL photo facials are:

  • Restored skin tone and feel
  • Neutralizes hyperpigmentation and sun spots
  • Refreshed, rejuvenated skin aesthetic 
  • Minimizes pores
  • Improved tone and texture
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin
  • Reduces tangelectasias and veins as well as diffuse redness

Am I a Good Candidate for IPL?

IPL works deep within the layers of your skin to treat complexion issues including hyperpigmentation, rosacea, veins, and large pores with little or no recovery needed. Ideal candidates for IPL treatments at Washington Skin Solutions may have a combination of issues with their skin, such as sun damage, rosacea, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), rough texture, large pores, flushing, freckles, or spider veins. Our nurse or esthetician can advise, and offer service as well as examine your complexion to see if you will benefit from an IPL photo facial during your initial consultation.

What to Expect from IPL Treatment

Visible improvements can be noticed following each treatment with Harmony XL PRO IPL technology, but optimal results are apparent about four months after your last treatment. It’s normal for your skin to see different responses following each treatment session. You may experience mild side effects, like temporary swelling, redness, blisters, bruising, or crusting. However, this should go away within a few days after the procedure. Your skin will be sun-sensitive, and you should keep in mind that sun exposure can impact the results of the procedure. Skin must have not had any unprotected sun exposure for four weeks prior to treatment in order to be treated safely.

After the skin is cleansed, ultrasound gel will be spread over the treatment area to cool and offer a glide. You will feel a snapping sensation similar to a rubber band. After treatment, you may have some redness for the first couple of days, then the hyperpigmented areas will get darker and flake off over the next week or so. Full results are seen after the collagen that is stimulated has matured in 3-4 months. 

Treat Skin Imperfections

Even if you didn't think too much about your skin's health when you were young, you now may be interested in corrective treatments that repair that damage. We encourage you to find out more about IPL photo facial treatments by contacting our office and making an appointment for a skin examination with a member of our staff. With Harmony XL PRO IPL treatments at Washington Skin Solutions, we can reach the deeper layers of skin to help create a radiant glow and a clear complexion.

Hair Restoration Information

Hair loss has quickly become a front-runner in concerns. We have an exciting program to help!

DE|RIVE is a biomimetic exosome treatment that can be micro-needled into the scalp via Scarlet to stimulate inactive follicles. It is a plant-based stem cell that improves the communication between your cells and stimulates them to increase blood supply, decrease DHT (kills cells), reduce inflammation, and germinate follicles. Previously, there has been a lot of controversy around stem cells due to their source, but there is no fear with these! All are plant-based and bioavailable. These stem cells will reactivate viable dormant follicles to increase hair growth and density with ZERO side effects. The only people that are not candidates are people with no active follicles.

This will be a 6-month all-inclusive program that will include four treatments done at months 1, 2, 3, & 6 and all your home care products: shampoo, conditioner, serum, supplements, exosomes, pillowcase, and a brush. Call to schedule and see if you’re a candidate!

At Washington Skin Solutions, this treatment is a quick patient experience. It is one of the best defenses against scars, acne, and stretch marks, dramatically improving the look and feel of your skin. The Scarlet SRF provides an ideal solution as a standalone treatment or a combination therapy for common skin concerns.

What Are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

A handful of causes may result in lackluster, loose skin and uneven skin texture. We have 2 versions of RF MN- Scarlet and Agnes that both do different things. Washington, MO, patients who struggle with similar skin complaints might discover that RF micro-needling is a fantastic answer to their issues and find several benefits from the treatment, including:

  • Treat skin imperfections such as blood vessels and discoloration
  • Minimize the appearance of sun damage and age spots
  • Address acne scars and other types of scarring
  • Refresh skin for a younger, more glowing appearance

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

Microneedling utilizes an instrument (with little needles on the end) that gently stamps the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and encourage collagen production. As the skin heals, new skin forms, leaving the top layer feeling brighter, smoother, and refreshed. Scarlet SRF technology distributes RF energy through an array of 25 non-insulated micro-needles. Scarlet SRF minimizes bleeding and increases the speed and comfort of the treatment to deliver optimal care and healing for almost all skin types and concerns.

Scarlet can be used anywhere on the body and can treat:

What Can I Expect After RF Microneedling?

After the RF microneedling treatment is complete, patients may expect minute pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours after treatment, but they will fall off on their own when the inherent skin has healed. Enhancements will become visible once the skin recovers over the 3 – 4 weeks after having a microneedling with an RF session. Ideal outcomes usually take 3 – 4 treatments 3 – 4 weeks apart.

No scabs. You will be provided with a post-care kit that includes a barrier cream. Post Scarlet is mainly just redness that can last up to 48 hours. Post Agnes can be bruising and swelling that can last up to a few days.

The procedure addresses facial wrinkles and lines and diminishes skin irregularities, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. Fractional skin resurfacing is ideal for people who want softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. Registered nurse Nikki Brueggemann can review any questions or concerns during the consultation.

Am I A Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

There are several factors to consider when deciding which method of laser skin resurfacing treatment is best for you. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for patients who are unhappy with their overall complexion. If you have sun damage, acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness concerns, this treatment can be needed to improve these complexion blemishes. In addition, laser skin resurfacing works effectively for those who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. Laser skin resurfacing isn't suggested for anyone who has very dark skin tones or active acne outbreaks. Additionally, it is important to know that there is downtime associated with these laser treatments. Some patients, based on the condition of their skin, may need as much as 2 – 3 weeks for recovery.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Our Laser Skin Resurfacing Technique

Before you are scheduled for a deeper or more intense laser resurfacing session, you will be asked to stop using a topical retinoid for a few weeks before your laser treatment. This helps prepare the skin for better results. You will relax in our treatment chair while the laser glides over the face during the procedure. The laser vaporizes dead and damaged skin cells while promoting new collagen and elastin production. Three to four days of recovery time is needed for most laser skin resurfacing procedures.

Laser Vein Removal

What Is Laser Vein Removal?

Usually found on the face and legs, spider veins are little blood vessels that branch and become visible through the skin. Caused by age, genetics, and other factors, spider veins may be blue, purple, or red, which makes them difficult to mask. Since spider veins typically get worse over the years and become more visible, it is smart to get treatment when they first appear. Washington Skin Solutions performs nonsurgical laser vein removal using the Harmony XL PRO by Alma for patients to decrease the look of veins on the body and face. In your private consultation, registered nurse Nikki Brueggemann can suggest a personalized plan to meet your needs and goals for your laser vein treatment.

  • Diminished appearance of unwanted veins or blemishes
  • No need for compression materials
  • Enhanced total appearance and wellness

What to Expect from Laser Vein Treatments

Spider veins are often found on the face, upper thighs, lower legs, and around the ankles. Laser vein removal can be a good treatment option for areas in both the face and body. Our cutting-edge laser system uses precision as it targets the selected vein so the surrounding skin is generally unaffected. The Harmony XL PRO system can also help remove skin lesions.

Laser vein removal treats the vein with a laser beam energy that causes it to shrink. Once the vein collapses, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks for it to be reabsorbed by the body and disappear. On average, most patients notice an improvement several weeks after their last laser vein treatment and multiple treatments may be necessary.
