Benefits of C02 laser resurfacing


Benefits of C02 Laser resurfacing

I wanted to share some information with you about a skin treatment that has been gaining popularity in recent years – CO2 Laser Treatment.

This non-invasive procedure uses advanced laser technology to target fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin, resulting in a tighter, smoother complexion. The benefits of this treatment are numerous and include:

  1. Skin Tightening: CO2 laser treatment stimulates the production of collagen, resulting in firmer, tighter skin.
  2. Wrinkle Reduction: The laser energy penetrates deep into the skin to target wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
  3. Improved Skin Texture: The laser energy smooths out rough, uneven skin texture and promotes a more youthful appearance.
  4. Non-Invasive: Unlike surgery, CO2 laser treatment is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no incisions, no stitches, and minimal downtime.
  5. Quick Results: Patients can expect to see improvement in skin texture and tightness almost immediately, with continued improvement over the next few months.

If you’re looking for a safe, effective way to rejuvenate your skin, I highly recommend considering CO2 laser treatment. I would be happy to discuss this treatment further with you and answer any questions you may have.

why I choose a medical spa over a non medical spa for tattoo removal

Where should I go to get laser tattoo removal?

That’s an easy answer. A highly skilled and trained medical spa or doctors office. Most laser technicians who are trained in the art of laser tattoo removal received specialized training for wound care, medication management, patient comfort control and more. Going to a tattoo parlor, or other non-medical establishment can be dangerous.

Why should I avoid pop-up or new laser tattoo removal businesses?

Experience and training cannot be replicated by visiting a laser certification school. Most programs offer hands-on experience, however. They don’t teach the more critical aspects of lasing…wound care and contraindications. There are too many risk factors to cover to explain why a medical background trumps any 2 day training course to become certified for operating a laser.

I was told that my “certified laser specialist” was just as qualified to perform laser tattoo removal as a doctor, is this true?

No. Would you undergo surgery at the hands of someone who only had 2 days of training to remove an appendix? There isn’t a comparison. The skill and knowledge of a seasoned laser trained medical professional or esthetician is second to none. The schooling required for advanced skin care is no less than 6 months of theoretical and clinical training.

I’ve seen a few new shops open in my area, what kind of questions should I ask them prior to booking an appointment?

The first question we would ask is, are you a medical professional or esthetician? If not, how many successful tattoos have you removed? How long was your training and who is your medical director? Do you have experience treating patients with extensive medical history records?

Chances are the new shop isn’t qualified enough to answer your questions or perform laser tattoo removal or other.

I received a super low quote to remove my tattoo, is this legit?

Cost is important for a lot of people, however. Would you select a surgeon to operate on your loved one, or yourself based on how much money they would save you, or would you choose the surgeon who has performed thousands upon thousands of successful procedures prior to your visit?

Who do you go to for your medical grade laser procedures or other medical procedure?

Like most of you, we’re consumers as well. We always choose the most qualified practitioner to perform any medical grade laser procedure. Laser tattoo removal is a medical procedure. Choose your clinic wisely. Too many times we have treated clients for mistakes because they wanted to save a few hundred dollars. It’s not worth the money and it’s not worth the risk to your health. As always, please contact your physician for any medical advice or questions.

Can Botox injections prevent wrinkles?

Can Botox injections prevent wrinkles?

Have you considered Botox injection to prevent wrinkles?


“Preventing” wrinkles is slowly becoming one of the top reasons people say during a consultation for Botox injections.  Oddly, most people don’t know how effective injectables can be to slow the aging process.  Many people want a “quick fix” and prefer the immediate results of Botox compared to over-the-counter products and at home care lille derma-rolling.  


We’ve had people ask if cosmetic intervention really trumps addressing lifestyle choices (sun exposure, diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, environmental…)?  Can Botox really make that much of a difference in my skins appearance?  The short answer is yes!  Botox is effective at relaxing the many muscle under the skin, producing even skin, and often allowing the skin to become more receptive to treatments like laser resurfacing, laser rejuvenation, and more.  


As Portland, Maine becomes more diverse and attracts a younger demographic, the need and or desire to stay competitive in the workplace increases the chances many more people will seek ways to stave off the eventual aging process.  Looking young is and has been a motivational challenge for Maine’s aging population.  The old saying (no pun intended), “if you look good you feel good,” isn’t’ enough.  The potential to keep and stay relevant in the workplace often hinges on esthetics…and performance of course.   


We’re not discounting experience over appearance, studies support looks make a difference.  People’s esthetics matters and we’re hearing it time-and-time-again.  “What brings you in today?”  I’m trying to stay and look young!  We hear you.  Vanity is a thing of the past.  No longer is Botox a “hush-hush” procedure.  In fact, the data and overall public acceptance has shifted with a tectonic force.  


Keeping up with the Kardashians is a prime example of our infatuation with looking good.  Rated as the number one show in it’s time slot, and E!’s cash cow, advertisers line up to pitch their respective product or service to a growing group of cosmetically inclined viewers.  What does that mean?  The trend has been set and the public has readily embraced the many forms of anti-aging techniques…the good AND the bad to embrace the once unattainable fountain of youth.   


So, what does Botox offer that a good old fashioned strict diet, sun avoidance, and exercise can’t achieve?  Instant results!  Happy injecting.
