The number of treatments required will vary patient to patient, but typically, 5-6 treatments for the face and 6-8 for the neck and body.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER THE TREATMENT?
During a Venus Freeze™ treatment, you will feel a warm sensation as the machine moves over your skin and concentrates on the affected areas. You should have a warm feeling and some slight heat from the treated area for about a few hours after the procedure. Although very rare, you might have some minimal bruising from a treatment, but this should be very light, if any. Treatments require no patient downtime and you can return to work or other normal activities immediately.

HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
There is no downtime with Laser Soft Peel and Laser toning. Some patients may experience slight redness that may last several hours. Sometimes patients may experience mild flaking for a few days. Make-up can be applied immediately. Normal activity can be resumed right away, but your face should be protected from the sun.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Patients should start noticing significant improvement after the 3rd session of Laser Soft Peel and Laser toning. Typically, 5 treatment sessions are recommended, done every 2-3 weeks. However, some patients may need additional Laser Soft Peel or Laser toning treatments to achieve satisfactory cosmetic outcome.
WHAT IS ULTHERA™ or ULTHERAPY™?
Ulthera™ or Ultherapy™ is a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses high intensity focused ultrasound to lift and tone loose skin without any downtime. Effective and with no healing time required, this is the preferred treatment for the busy individual to achieve firmer, tighter and lifted skin.
HOW DOES ULTHERAPY™ WORK?
It delivers focused ultrasound (a form of heat energy) below the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural renewal of existing collagen and creation of new collagen. Ultherapy™ targets the deep tissues – the same tissues that are addressed in a surgical facelift – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. This results in a toning and visible lifting of the skin over time.
HOW LONG IS THE ULTHERA™ TREATMENT SESSION?
A full face and neck treatment takes about an hour. When taking pain medication, expect to do this about an hour before treatment begins.
IS ULTHERAPY™ PAINFUL?
Although pain thresholds vary with each individual, expect to feel tolerable discomfort (akin to an electrical tingling) while the energy is being delivered. This is temporary and can be well-managed with topical anaesthesia. We also administer cream anesthetic as well as a potent pain reliever if necessary for the patient’s utmost treatment comfort.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS? WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE ULTHERA™ TREATMENT?
After an Ultherapy™ treatment, there is rarely any visible effect beyond mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment. Since there is no wound or injury to the skin, makeup can be applied straight away. Patients can immediately resume their regular daily activities. No specific care is needed after treatment, although you may be asked to avoid sun and some skin products for a period of time after the treatment.
Ulthera™ treatments are simple and straightforward. Expect lifting and toning over the next 2-3 months, as old collagen is renewed and replaced with new and stronger collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a single treatment. Results will last for up to a minimum of 2 years. This article sums up the process and the real results of an Ultherapy™ treatment – http://www.today.com/style/ultherapy-review-cost-mini-lift-without-surgery-non-invasive-I523243 .
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Most individuals only need 1 treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on the degree of skin laxity they have).

Desiring to slim your face and have an oval-shaped face? This non- surgical jaw reduction procedure will help you accomplish that.
If you have a face shape that looks too big at the jaws, it is possible that you have big masseter muscles that is causing your face to look rounder, bigger or too square. You can slim the jawline with a simple injection of Botox™ on each side of the jaw. This face slimming procedure is popularly known as the non-surgical jaw reduction procedure, or the Botox™ jaw reduction procedure.
The masseters are 2 bulky muscles on each side of the angle of your jaw. They serve as muscles of mastication, which means they help you chew.
Sometimes, big jaws are caused by habitual or subconscious grinding of teeth. With excessive chewing or grinding, the masseters at the jawline can grow to quite a size (causing the jaws to look square). Relaxing the muscles by injecting Botox™ is effective in shrinking the jawline, thereby reducing the square jaw appearance.
It doesn’t matter how you got them…whether they’re from carrying your first child, lifting weights at the gym, or merely a result of the rapid growth that often occurs during adolescence…
Whatever their cause, stretch marks are a major source of embarrassment. The pale scar lines…the rough texture of the surrounding skin…the color irregularities of the skin’s surface…it’s enough to make once-beautiful skin a source of shame instead of pride.
Fortunately, stretch marks are not just an unavoidable part of life…Skinplexin™ can prevent the formation of stretch marks and minimize the appearance of existing scars so you can learn to love your body again.
Skinplexin™ is a scientifically-formulated,proprietary peptide, vitamin, and organic Marrubium extract blend. The unique properties of Skinplexin™’s ingredients allow this fantastic product to:
>Protect skin during mechanical stretching
>Reduce skin inflammation
>Prevent tissue degradation by protecting the structure of the extra-cellular matrix
>Stimulate collagen production to diminish the appearance of stretch marks
>Repair damaged tissue
Skinplexin™ is an easy to apply product that does not contain harmful or harsh ingredients and produces remarkable results. Some of the benefits you can expect from Skinplexin™include:
>Effective prevention of new stretch marks
>Improvement in the appearance of existing stretch marks
>More moisturized, smoother skin

The Science Behind Skinplexin
The results from extensive laboratory testing are in! Scientists have concluded that Skinplexin™ can protect against the type of damage that causes stretch marks and minimize inflammation through the down-regulation of proinflammatory cytokines like IL-1B and TNF-a.
Both of these properties can stop stretch marks from appearing in the first place, but what if you already have those dreaded ugly scars on your thighs, stomach, or arms? Skinplexin™ can help you too! Using Skinplexin™ is a proven effective method for minimizing the appearance of stretch marks, boosting dermis density, and improving the properties of skin tissue, all of which can make stretch marks much less noticeable, something we’re sure you’ll agree is great news.
Made in the USA.
Botox® is a toxin produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. It originally was used to restore a normal voice for people with a vocal chord condition called spasmodic dysphonia. It has also been used to treat uncontrollable eye twitches and embarrassing sweating of the palms and underarms. In the mid 1990’s, plastic surgeons began using Botox injections to treat facial wrinkles.
Botox® will dramatically improve (and often vanish) horizontal forehead creases, scowl lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, and vertical wrinkles of your upper lip.
HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
Dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles, are due to repetitive facial expression. Weakening the muscles responsible for these facial expressions can dramatically improve these wrinkles. With Botox®, these muscles can be weakened without detracting from your facial expressiveness.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THE PROCEDURE?
As Botox® is being injected, you may experience brief mild discomfort. Following injection, recovery is immediate; you may place make-up and return to work immediately. A few experience mild bruising which improves within a few days.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS? HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS LAST?
Following the injections, it will take several days before you notice any change in your expression lines. The maximum effect is seen at 2 to 4 weeks. The results should last for 4-6 months. As the Botox® effects wear off, you will begin to notice increased muscle action and some reformation of wrinkles. Reinjections will be needed to maintain your results.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS WITH THIS TREATMENT?
The anticipated risk and discomforts of this treatment are minimal. You may experience temporary redness, bruising, or stinging around the injection sites. In rare cases, you could have a slight lid droop for several days or weeks after the injection. All the reported side effects of the medication have proven to be temporary. Very little of the botulinum toxin is absorbed into the bloodstream. No systemic adverse side effects have been reported from local injection of botulinum toxin at the doses used for facial wrinkles.
WHAT ARE KELOIDS?
Keloids are harmless growths of fibrous tissues at the site of a healing scar caused by overproduction of collagen. Keloids are most common on the breastbone, upper back, and shoulder but can occur anywhere on the body. Some people, especially those with dark skin, are more prone to developing keloids.
HOW DO I KNOW THAT I HAVE A KELOID?
Signs and symptoms include:
• Firm, raised, hard scars.
• Colour that varies from slightly pink to very dark.
• Tenderness or itching.
• Continued growth and claw-like projections.
DO KELOIDS DISAPPEAR WITHOUT TREATMENT?
Keloids may continue to grow slowly for weeks, months or years. They eventually stop growing but do not disappear on their own. Once a keloid develops, it is permanent unless removed or treated successfully.
HOW DOES LASER GENESIS TREAT KELOIDS?
Laser Genesis helps in reducing the size and redness of keloids. Minimum of 6 treatments are required for optimum results.
IS LASER GENESIS PAINFUL?
No, Laser Genesis is a comfortable, non-invasive treatment. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure. We have had some people compare it to the feeling of the sun heating the skin.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The treatment usually takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area being treated.
In 2013, a study conducted by the British Association of Dermatologists, the authors compared the satisfaction level, safety, and effectiveness of Diode laser (LightSheer™ XC) and of Intense pulsed light (IPL; Ellipse™ Flex PPT) in the reduction and the removal of unwanted underarm hair. There were 30 women who participated in the study.
The tests were performed for 6 sessions within 4 week intervals. Hair counts were conducted and compared at both sides at baseline as well as 6 months after the participants have undergone the last session. The clinicians and the subjects at the end of the test did the final evaluations. Satisfaction was also scored for both types of hair removal methods.
At 6 months, the reduction in the hair counts of those who have undergone the laser hair removal method was considerably greater compared to that of those who used IPL.
In conclusion, the study has found that hair removal for individuals can be done safely and effectively through both diode laser and intense pulsed light. However, as reported by both the clinicians and the subjects, laser is more effective especially in long term follow-up for complete hair removal, and is a more preferred choice among patients and clinicians.
In addition to the benefits of laser hair removal devices that have been mentioned above, there are a number of other elements that make it a better choice for those who want to remove and experience a considerable reduction in unwanted hair:
• PRECISION – Reduction and removal of hair through a laser device can be much more precise; that it can selectively target coarse and dark hairs while ensuring that the surrounding skin will be left undamaged.
• SPEED – Each pulse of a laser only takes a fraction of a second to treat many hairs all at the same time. Laser has the power to treat a targeted area that has the size of a quarter each second. Through laser, hair growing out of smaller areas, such as the upper lip, can be removed in less than one minute. For larger areas including the legs or the back, the entire process will only take about or less than an hour.
• PREDICTABILITY – 90% of patients who have undergone laser hair removal has experienced permanent hair loss after undergoing about 5 sessions.
At CorDerm Advanced Dermatology & Laser Center, patients can expect one of the best and the most comprehensive laser hair removal treatment. This is because our center uses the Gold Standard in Laser Hair Removal – LightSheer™ Diode Laser, performed by our Board-certified Dermatologist.
