Never Shave Again With Fountain Of Youth’s Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Well, we made it through another winter! With the long-awaited return of warm weather comes the task of regular shaving. Although most of us would trade the cold and grey any day for the chance to shed those extra layers, many women are reminded that shaving sometimes brings pain from ingrown hairs. It’s enough to darken the sunniest
Ingrown hairs are hairs that have curled around and grown back into the skin, instead of rising up from it. Dead skin can clog up the hair follicles and force the hair to grow sideways under the skin, instead of upward and out. Ingrown hairs are not serious, but they can be painful, irritating and embarrassing. An ingrown hair can result in raised red bumps, or a group of bumps, that form under the skin, resembling a pimple or boil, often times containing pus.
Fountain of Youth Skin Renewal Centre in Hartland has a solution to get to the root, literally, of pesky hairs, and eradicate them permanently with its laser hair removal treatments.
Fountain of Youth uses the top-ofline Candela GentleMax Pro laser. The Candela laser works by exposing the hair follicle to laser pulses that seek out and damage melanin (the pigment in skin and hair). Dark pigments in the hair are targeted and destroyed, leaving the lighter
pigment in the skin untouched.
“You can finally take hair removal out of your everyday beauty routine and say goodbye to waxing, shaving and bleaching. It’s time to make your life easier!” said Sue Alderson, R.N., owner of Fountain of Youth.
In addition to removing unwanted hair, the laser treatment can diffuse redness and treat vascular lesions; port wine stains (discoloration of the human skin caused by a capillary malformation in the skin named after their color, a fortified red); the hemangioma type of benign (non-cancerous) tumor in infants—abnormal clusters of small blood vessels on or under the skin; telangiectasia (often called spider veins); venous lake (solid elevation of
skin with no visible fluid commonly found on sun-exposed surfaces of the vermilion border of the lip, face and ears); leg veins; pigmented lesions; wrinkles; onychomycosis (nail fungus); and pseudofoliculitis barbae (razor bumps).
The Candela GentleMax Pro uses dynamic cryogen cooling that safely and effectively treats all skin types. Since everybody is different, treatment varies from person to person. A licensed esthetician meets with each potential patient to discuss how many treatments are needed and how long results will last. Most patients require six to eight sessions to permanently reduce hair growth on the face, legs, back, arms, bikini, and other areas.
Consultations are free and through Fountain of Youth’s in-house financing, patients are able to set up manageable payments that won’t break her bank.
“At Fountain of Youth, we make your beauty and confidence our priority. Whether you are looking to reduce the look of wrinkles, eliminate fat, or just looking to exfoliate your skin, we are here to help!” said Alderson.
Fountain of Youth has a variety of other services that can make both men and women feel their best this summer, including body sculpting, spider vein removal, waxing, tattoo removal and much more. The Fountain of Youth also offers topof-the-line medical-grade skin care products that will maintain progress and enhance results.
