Warts are small, self-limited tumors caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Although warts are considered contagious, it is not uncommon for just one family member to have them. In addition, they often affect just one part of the body but they can be spread by picking them. For the removal of the wart C02 Laser is a tool of first choice, a device that emits high energy laser light which produces coagulation of the blood vessels & necrosis of the wart without damage to the surrounding tissue & optimizing the recovery of the treated area, while reducing the risk of bleeding & infection. The resulting scabs clear in 2 to 3 days.
Syringoma is a non-cancerous bump or clusters of bumps that is caused by an overgrowth of cells within the sweat glands (eccrine), can be inherited and often runs in families. Treatment of Periorbital Syringoma involves the removal of lesions by C02 laser, with minimal scarring and prevention of recurrence. As the skin is very thin around the eyes, the treatment is done very carefully and gradually, usually in two sessions. The first session is to clear most or all of the lumps, and the 2nd is to make sure that the small fractions and deep part of the gland that resurfaced are eliminated.
When the skin cells are not completely shed, keratin builds up beneath the epidermis forming a wall that is 1 to 3 millimeters in diameter. The rounded bump is referred to as milium (plural, milia) and often appears around the eyes & cheeks as raised bumps that are sometimes mistaken for white heads. Milia seed removal by C02 laser is the easiest and fastest without scarring. Some milia may need 2 or 3 treatment sessions, spaced 1 month apart.
Acne Treatment Program
Acne may be attributed to genetics or hormonal imbalance. Contributing factors, or acne triggers, include lifestyle choices, such as diet, sleep pattern, hygiene, or stress. When skin does not exfoliate as it should, dead cells build up on the skin surface and inside the pore. Dead cells mix with trapped oil and pores become clogged, resulting in blackheads and whiteheads. All cases of acne are not created equal, and neither are all acne treatments.
Although all acne has its roots in the same process, not all acne is equally severe and not all cases of acne will respond to the same types of treatment. A recommendation then for acne skin care is a combination of oral medication, topical medicines and treatments that prevent acne infections and scarring. A less inflammatory and toxic diet is highly recommended.
Deep Cleansing Facials
Deep pore facial treatments are tailored to each client’s need. There are a variety of skin care conditions and needs and certain products benefit different skin conditions. Facial cleansing begins with either a facial scrub, or a gentle cleanser that contain AHAs. Once the skin is cleansed, the Aesthetician begins the exfoliation process which dissolves the top layer of the skin cells.
Enzymes that are common in facial exfoliation are activated by steam. Steam helps to open the pores and relax the client as well, once the skin is exfoliated and the pores are open, the Aesthetician will begin Extractions of comedones from the pores. To complete the facial service, a facial mask is applied. Facial masks come in many different varieties and specify in different skin care concerns. A moisturizer or sun block then is applied after the mask is removed. It is important to maintain this regimen every 6-8 weeks for optimal results.
