Microdermabrasion for Beautiful Skin

If you could remove the dead skin cells found in the outermost layer of the skin, below the surface lies a more radiant, clearer and even toned face. Microdermabrasion is one effective treatment to eliminate the lifeless epidermis.

Utilizing a specialized hand piece, a practitioner will glide the wand smoothly over the skin removing the outermost layers while suction pulls the dead skin cells into a debris canister. This action occurs by small-sterilized crystals that are propelled at the skin. The treatment encourages growth of new skin cells and will improve levels of collagen and elastin. The simplicity and effectiveness of microdermabrasion is what makes this non-invasive treatment so unique.

Following the 30-minute microdermabrasion procedure the skin is prepared to receive corrective and healing cosmeceuticals. These serums will be applied by the aesthetician performing the treatment and aid the effects of the procedure. Patients can see a reduction of wrinkles, age spots, fine lines and even smooth superficial acne scars with no discomfort or downtime.

According to Dr. Rubaum an ENT Facial Plastic Surgeon and Director of the Laser Image Company in Redondo Beach,  "Microdermabrasion is a simple lunchtime treatment used to help cell turnover immediately leaving more youthful glowing skin. "

Microdermabrasion can be done alone or combined with a chemical peel or laser treatment to enhance the results. Dr. Rubaum states, “a combination therapy of laser with microdermabrasion can more then double the effectiveness of the treatment that leads to a more positive outcome for the client. Once the procedure is completed it is very important to protect your new youthful skin with an SPF sunscreen of 30 or higher.”
With being exposed to the elements everyday our skin needs help to combat sun exposure, pollution and other damaging effects. Microdermabrasion, with no serious side effects is a simple procedure that can put you on the road to beautiful skin.

Combination Microdermabrasion Treatments A More Effective Way to Fight the Signs of Ageing

Redondo Beach, CA, May, 30th 2012--Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique used to remove the superficial layers of dead and damaged skin through exfoliation while leaving the skin looking far healthier and radiant. The treatments also improve the collagen production by increasing the blood flow to the damaged skin areas. Dr. Lad Rubaum, Director of the Laser Image Company in Redondo Beach, stated that “These procedures have eliminated the fine lines caused by the aging process while addressing the problems of shallow acne, acne scars, uneven skin tones, enlarged pores and even stretch marks. These treatments can also prevent new pimples from forming.”
 
The objective of any non invasive cosmetic treatment is to get the laser energy and the medical products active ingredients to the specific layers of the damaged skin to promote the most effective change. A pre-treatment evaluation and procedure with Microdermabrasion removes any barriers and the dead cells, allowing the chemical peel or laser treatment to saturate and penetrate the damaged area of the skin.
 
As successful as the individual Microdermabrasion treatments are on their own Dr. Rubaum continued, “a combination of Microdermabrasion sessions followed by a chemical peel or laser treatment (Laser Genesis) will increase the procedures effectiveness and significantly improve and enhance the results.”
 
If a patient has a problem with brown spots caused by sun exposure, Microdermabrasion, combined with a chemical peel or Photofacial laser treatment, can increase results by as much as 50%. After the dead skin cells are removed, the use of home care cosmeceuticals will also improve the skin and increase the outcome considerably.
 
A specific treatment regimen is designed for each patient based on their skin type, skin condition and objectives to be attained. The Microdermabrasion treatments administered by the Laser Image Company are carefully monitored by a nurse or aesthetician who is familiar with your skin and past results. The laser treatments are gradually introduced to a patient’s skin, taking into account the comfort and reactions from previous sessions.
 
For a minimal cost, Microdermabrasion, as a pre-treatment for laser or chemical peel, is a more effective way to keep your skin looking its best.

Photofacial Cosmetic Laser Treatments Shown to Improve Damaged Skin

Redondo Beach, CA, May 23rd, 2012--Skin damage can be attributed to an over-exposure to the sun’s rays, an increase in air pollutants, a personal diet consisting of junk foods or the normal aging process and the need to combat these problems is on everyone’s mind. With the number of commercials touting the effectiveness of their products, how does a potential patient know which procedure is the most effective when there are so many choices available on the market today?
 
Dr. Rubaum, Director of the Laser Image Company, states “to control and reverse the damaged skin areas, the best results are derived from utilizing a combination of photofacial laser treatments, a skin lightening cream and the daily use of a good sunscreen. There are many active ingredients on the market which help lighten the skin; Retin A, Arbutin, Kojic Acid and Hydroquinone, are most commonly used. Over the counter products have lower percentages of these ingredients thus making them less effective. Our patients are provided with a high grade medical lightening cream sold only at a physician’s office or medspa.”
 
Photofacial Laser treatments have been available for more than a decade and the advancement in laser technology has made the systems and procedures less costly with more highly successful results. In addition, the increased competition and accessibility to doctor’s offices and medical spas offering these procedures have made the treatments more affordable.
 
A specific treatment regimen is designed for each patient based on their skin type, skin condition and objectives to be attained. The monthly photofacial laser treatment targets sun damaged skin and brown spots and stimulates collagen in these affected areas. The treatment feels like a light rubber band snap and within 24 hours of the procedure, patients will see the spots on their face become a darker brown. This is sometimes referred to as a peppering effect.
 
These dark spots will ultimately flake off within ten days to two weeks leaving the skin with a brighter, more radiant and resilient look. The daily use of the lightening cream may leave the skin a little dry which can easily be relieved with a basic moisturizer. Sunscreen is very important in enhancing the process and, if needed, additional treatments can always be scheduled.
 
In conclusion, combining the Photofacial Laser treatment with an effective lightening cream and a good sunscreen (SPF 30) will increase your results and keep the damaged pigmentation from returning.

Facial Filler Face Lift with No Surgery

Redondo Beach, California, May 14th, 2012--Can we really get the look of a facelift by injecting facial fillers? What are the filler options and who is a good candidate?

As time passes and we get older the face starts to lose volume, causing skin laxity and wrinkles. Our faces start to get a hollow look around the eyes and the nasolabial folds (lines below the cheeks) become more pronounced. In the past the solution was a little nip and tuck, pull tight the existing skin and cut the excess away. This is still a viable procedure but can facial filler, such as Radiesse give a sagging face a rejuvenated look?

We asked Dr. Rubaum a facial plastic surgeon and owner of the Laser Image Company, a medical spa specializing in non-invasive cosmetic procedures his thoughts. “facial fillers such as Radiesse fill the void left by the decrease of facial volume. This calcium based filler can be injected in the cheek area, lifting the saggy skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It is an inexpensive treatment that any person can do with minimal downtime.” Because this facial filler, Radiesse, is of a thicker consistency it cannot be injected under the eyes

Facial fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane can be used in the more thinned skin areas. If the eyes have saggy skin or the lips are smaller than a patient would like these fillers can used to correct this concern. These facial fillers are naturally occurring in our own bodies, draw water to the area where injected and can be removed very easily if the patient does not like the look.

Patients will see immediate change in the areas where injected and can expect results to last from six months to one year. Injections can be a little painful but with the new lidocaine mixed fillers and a topical anesthetic, patients can tolerate the procedure fairly easily. Lips, with the most nerve endings will be the most sensitive. Some bruising and swelling may occur so plan your facial filler facelift with appropriate time to heal.  

The use of facial fillers such as Radiesse, Juvederm and Restylane give patients an effective alternative to the surgical face lift procedure. These products can’t help with that loose skin below the neck but a laser skin tightening treatment called Refirme is showing promising results.

Non- Surgical Skin Tightening Treatments – Do They Really Work

Redondo Beach, CA, May 3rd, 2012--It has been said that non-surgical skin tightening treatments are just hype and patients are being misled to believing they can get surgical facelift results from this type of laser technology. The problem with any treatments that are offered today is that the practitioners are giving false expectations. Is this the case with skin tightening treatments or does the technology just give inadequate results?

According to Dr. Rubaum, Director of the Laser Image Company in Redondo Beach who uses the Refirme laser skin system, "The results of the skin tightening laser are very consistent at our office; first we choose the correct type of patient with the skin issues where the laser is most effective.  During the initial consultation we discuss how the laser works, what conditions it can help and what they can expect from the treatment.” Taking the time to educate a patient will give them a clear understanding of the procedure and the expected results. He also stated, “We frequently turn away patients with to high expectations, under promise and over deliver, if laser skin tightening is not right for them, suggest a procedure that is.”

The emergence of this skin tightening technology is the result of patients looking for alternatives to surgically invasive facelifts. With no downtime, good results and budget friendly prices, patients can have the procedure monthly without missing any work.

The Refirme, the skin tightening laser system by Syneron, which is used by Dr. Rubaum, uses two different types of energies to heat up the skin [dermis]. The infrared light and radio-frequency gently bulk heats the area to stimulate the body's natural processes to renew the skin's collagen foundation resulting in a tighter, healthier-looking skin.

With so many places in society that offer this type of procedure how do we know which to choose? Dr. Rubaum states, “The best results occur when the appropriate technique is used, find a location that has an experienced laser skin tightening technician who takes the time to explain the procedure and does not rush you out of the room.”

With cost ranging somewhere between $150 - $500 per treatment, the Refirme skin tightening procedure is an efficient, effective and inexpensive alternative to reverse the adverse effects of aging and reduce wrinkles, providing a younger looking and healthy skin for all patients.

Photofacial Laser a Viable Treatment for Aging Hands

Redondo Beach, CA, May 2nd, 2012--With advancements in photofacial laser treatment technology results have improved becoming more reliable and safer for any area of the body.  The removal of brown spots on the hands (sometimes called liver/age spots) will be a faded memory of the past.   As a prospective patient, we will explain the Photofacial Laser technology process, how it works and what can be expected from the treatments.

The Photofacial Laser targets sun damaged skin, brown and red spots and stimulates collagen to help reduce the weathered look of the hands.  A Photofacial Laser hand piece is used to concentrate an intense pulse of light to the hand area which, in turn, stimulates increased blood flow and generates additional collagen to the affected area. The treatment feels like a rubber band snapping on the skin and within two weeks the dark spots will flake off to reveal your improved skin results.

The Cutera Photofacial Laser equipment for has been available several years and Dr. Rubaum, Director of the Laser Image Company, sees this technology as the best on the market today. As head of a medical spa specializing in non-invasive cosmetic procedures, he stated “Patients forget that our initial business or personal introduction is a glance to the face and then the extension of a hand for a shake. A Photofacial Laser treatment can rejuvenate the hand by removing the brown spots and stimulate collagen to smooth the skin. “

Dr. Rubaum continued, “This new photofacial laser technology allows the hand piece to be placed directly on the skin with no gel giving consistency in treatment parameters. This consistency gives the patient the same effectiveness across the entire hand.”  The wavelength of light of this laser is specifically designed to target the damaged darker pigmentation, reducing the chance of injury to the surrounding skin. “Dr. Rubaum continued, “As a precaution, we test sample a part of the skin to see a patient’s reaction to the treatment. This is always the first step of a smart skin plan and remedial process.”

Patients will have a precautionary test spot performed on their hands and after 10 minutes the reaction will be assessed and the full treatment done. Within 24 hours of the photofacial laser treatment patients will see the spots on their hands become a darker brown which is sometimes referred to as a peppering effect.  These dark spots will ultimately flake off within ten days to two weeks leaving a brighter more radiant skin. If necessary, additional treatments may be required. Combining the Photofacial Laser treatment with an effective home care regime and a good sunscreen (SPF 30) will increase your results and keep the pigmentation from returning.
