PicoSure: 3 Factors that Impact Laser Tattoo Removal Results

By Kuulei @ Jan 22, 2015 | 0 comments

Because we always want our clients to experience the latest and greatest in med spa technology, Aesthetica Medical Spa was the first place in Salt Lake City or Utah County to offer PicoSure laser tattoo removal. And our clients are already experiencing the amazing results of Salt Lake City laser tattoo removal with PicoSure.

Why is PicoSure laser tattoo removal technology so much better than other laser tattoo removal systems?

  • PicoSure removes ink 3 to 4 times faster than any other laser tattoo removal system
  • PicoSure removes tattoos more effectively
  • PicoSure  reduces the pain associated with tattoo removal
  • PicoSure causes less damage to the skin than any other laser tattoo removal system available in Utah

PicoSure is radically different than any other Salt Lake City laser tattoo system. It uses extremely short pulses to hit ink particles with a pressure so great that the ink shatters into dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they are easily both absorbed and eliminated from the body. This means that the tattoo is better cleared and will require fewer treatments.

If you think that PicoSure might be the right laser tattoo removal system for you, keep reading to see how different factors affect the results of PicoSure technology.

Color of Tattoo

In the past, certain blues and greens of tattoos were not easy to remove. This is now only an issue for outdated technology. PicoSure laser tattoo removal system effectively removes a spectrum of tattoo ink colors. Aesthetica clients have seen amazing results from PicoSure even if they have tried to get their tattoo removed before with other Salt Lake City laser tattoo removal systems.


Age of Tattoo

As you get older, the body changes. Over time, your skin loses collagen and elastin, so your tattoo may be faded or blurred. While older tattoos may have been more difficult to pinpoint and remove in the past, PicoSure easily breaks down the ink of all tattoos. Even if you had your tattoo recently, PicoSure can remove tattoos as early as the day they were inked.

Number of Treatments

Six weeks after the first PicoSure treatment, your body begins breaking down ink. This means that the time between treatments will make the process long, but the number of treatments is not pre-determined. You will need to meet with a PicoSure specialist at Aesthetica Medical Spa to determine the number of treatments you will need. The size, color, and location of the tattoo are all important factors in determining how many treatments you will need.

PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare

Most patients do not blister or scab after they receive PicoSure laser tattoo removal system. But if blistering occurs, it is important that you do not pick at the blisters. Instead, you should cover the area with ointment and gauze to prevent scarring.

UltraShape: What to Expect During Treatment

By Kuulei @ Jan 15, 2015 | 0 comments

UltraShape is the only non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses a pulsed, focused ultrasound to instantly destroy the body’s fat cells and bring visible results in as little as two weeks.

This non-surgical liposuction alternative gives patients a significant reduction in localized fat deposits, and clinical results from UltraShape show that the treatment can offer reduction up to 2.5 inches after only three treatments.

If you have considered a liposuction alternative in Salt Lake City, UltraShape may be the answer. Read on to find out if this revolutionary body-sculpting procedure is right for you.

UltraShape: Why It’s Different from Other Treatments

Our Utah medical spa offers UltraShape, because it is:

  • Non-invasive: This is a non-surgical liposuction alternative.
  • Safe: UltraShape breaks down only fat cells with a non-thermal effect.
  • Successful: These treatments have been effective in treatments worldwide.
  • Easy: No sedation is required and the ultrasound energy doesn’t cause pain.

When UltraShape disrupts the fat cell membranes, the cell’s contents are sent to through the body’s vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The body processes the fat and it is eliminated.

UltraShape: What to Expect during Treatment

Patients who receive UltraShape from our Utah medical spa report that the experience a comfortable. Patients are not sedated during treatment and do not experience pain.

Unlike other non-invasive body sculpting procedures, Ultrashape destroys fat cells instantly while leaving the surrounding tissue, vessels, nerves and muscles intact, which means no severe bruising or inflammation.

Side effects of the body-shaping treatment are very rare. The 3D technology delivers energy in a uniform fashion, so contour irregularities are minimized. This is a promise that liposuction just can’t provide.

UltraShape: What to Expect after Treatment

Our Salt Lake City medical spa clients love UltraShape, because it requires no downtime. After the body sculpting treatment, clients can return to everyday activities immediately.

Salt Lake City UltraShape treatments are different than  other body-sculpting treatments. Unlike cold-based treatments, Salt Lake City medical spa clients won’t have frozen lumps on the skin after UltraShape treatment. There will be no skin inflammation, which is common with heat-based treatment. Additionally, there is no pain associated with UltraShape, which is very common with traditional liposuction treatments

With Salt Lake City UltraShape, there is little post-treatment maintenance required. In as little as two weeks after the  first Salt Lake City UltraShape appointment, you will begin to see results.

You will need to schedule two more UltraShape treatments spaced two weeks apart. Also, very importantly, the Utah Aesthetica Medical Spa recommends maintaining a healthy lifestyle so that new fat cells won’t replace the old.

Ready for Results?

UltraShape Treatment in Salt Lake City

By Kuulei @ Dec 29, 2014 | 0 comments

UltraShape is the best treatment available in medical spas for shaping your body. This revolutionary procedure destroys fat in problem areas without surgery. 

Aesthetica Medical Spa, Salt Lake City and Utah County’s favorite place for beauty, is proud to offer our patients our UltraShape procedure. Because it uses the body’s natural disposal process to get ride of unwanted fat, it mimics the same process that takes place during traditional weight loss. As a result, there is no damage to the body’s system after UltraShape treatment.

Below we will answer some of the questions that you have about the UltraShape treatments you’ll receive at our Utah medical spa.

UltraShape: How to prepare

There are no special instructions that you must follow before your UltraShape treatments. When you visit our Salt Lake City medical spa for UltraShape, we do recommend that you wear loose-fitting clothing so that the area being treated can be easily accessed.

UltraShape is a non-invasive procedure, so you will not need any type of sedation during the procedure. Patients should book at least three treatments for Utah Ultrashape spaced two to three weeks apart to receive the best effects of the treatment.

UltraShape: What to expect during treatment

During this 45-minute treatment, you can expect to relax while the ultrasonic energy of the device obliterates the fat in your problem areas. Salt Lake City UltraShape patients report that the treatment feels warm with a slight tingling sensation. These feelings were not reported as uncomfortable and did not continue after the UltraShape treatment was completed.

Under the surface of the skin during an UltraShape treatment, the FDA-approved device is targeting and breaking down the body’s fat. The body processes the destroyed fat cells naturally through its physiological and metabolic pathways. The UltraShape method creates a 3D map of the body’s curvature to ensure that the treatment is evenly delivered.

UltraShape: What happens after treatment

Utah UltraShape treatments have no downtime, so you can immediately return to your normal life—like making the short drive home to Salt Lake City. There are no restrictions you must follow after an UltraShape appointment. Just like liposuction, the results of UltraShape are permanent, so patients that maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly see the best long-term results.

Following a series of three UltraShape treatments, our Utah medical spa patients report, on average, a loss of four centimeters in circumference.

Contact Aesthetica Medical Spa for the best UltraShape experience in Salt Lake City and Utah County. Call 877-580-2622 to schedule a free consultation today.

Laser Tattoo Removal & Your Immune System

By Kuulei @ Dec 22, 2014 | 0 comments

After tattoos found a place in popular culture, both men and women of all ages and lifestyles started going under the buzzing needle. A 2012 Pew Research poll found that 21% of Americans have at least one tattoo, with young adults reporting a whopping 41%. Once reserved only for rebels, tattoos now adorn mainstream Americans.

But, like most fads, the fascination with tattoos seems to be wavering. Although tattoo parlors are still inking the masses, more Americans are opting to erase their “permanent” body decoration. Tattoo regret is no doubt a global phenomenon.

Luckily, laser technology has made great strides in tattoo removal. New laser tattoo removal systems can remove tattoos more completely and with less pain than ever before. Choosing the right provider for your Salt Lake City tattoo removal is the first critical step. However, the results can also depend on other factors like your immune system.

Read on to discover some steps you can take for better laser tattoo removal results.

Boost Your Immunity

The laser tattoo removal system only starts the tattoo removal process. It is, in fact, your own body’s immune system that is responsible for eliminating the ink particles from your skin. The laser shatters the ink particles into smaller parts, and then the body attacks the shattered ink particles, which are now small enough for the body to expel.

Avoid Laser Tattoo Removal if You are Ill

It is best to receive a laser tattoo removal treatment while your body is strong, therefore, if you are fighting off a moderate or serious infection, you may consider waiting until you are back to good health. The immune system can then focus on attacking and expelling ink particles rather than fighting other conditions.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking lots of water and other hydrating fluids while undergoing Salt Lake City tattoo removal will help your body naturally expel ink particles. Staying hydrated allows your body to flush out any toxins in the body more efficiently and more quickly. Which could mean ink-free skin sooner.

Keep a Healthy Lifestyle

Taking vitamins and exercising will boost your immune system and may help during the  tattoo removal healing process. Additionally, avoiding unhealthy choices, such as alcohol consumption and smoking, will keep your immune system strong. In fact, moderate or heavy alcohol use can thin the blood, counteracting the immune system’s natural response.

Smoking also weakens your body’s natural defenses. A study of laser tattoo removal in The Archives of Dermatology found smoking can decrease the effectiveness of laser tattoo removal by a staggering 70%.

Avoid Infection with Proper Aftercare

Your Salt Lake City laser tattoo provider will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions for the treated area—be sure to follow them! Keeping any blisters or scabs in tact will quicken the healing process of the skin and prevent infection from entering the skin; it will also reduce the chances of scarring. Protecting the treated area from the sun until the laser tattoo removal process is complete will also prevent complications.

Aesthetica has a premier laser tattoo removal clinic available to both Utah County and Salt Lake City residents. We are the exclusive provider of the PicoSure Laser System in Utah County.

4 Hair Removal Treatments You’ll be Thankful are Long Gone

By Kuulei @ Dec 4, 2014 | 0 comments

During this time of year, we are often reminded to take a moment out of our hectic lives and to be grateful this time of year. There is plenty to be grateful for: the beautiful Salt Lake City mountains, the warmer-than-usual weather and the upcoming gatherings with family and friends. But sometimes we should take a moment to be thankful what we don’t have.

The beauty experts at Aesthetica Medical Spa, the premier Utah County and Salt Lake City medical spa, have uncovered some of the most outlandish—and sometimes downright dangerous—hair removal treatments of the past that we can all be thankful are long gone.  

#1 Mousey Eyebrows

Many of us still struggle to get the perfect brow. Some women have laser hair removal to eliminate the unwanted hair we loving refer to as “the unibrow.” Others employ pencils and powders to perfect their arch. But in the 1700s a bushy brow was all the rage. However, no one wanted a natural brow.

During this time, women of the upper classes would shave their real eyebrows and attach false ones—often made of furry mouse skin—as a way to enhance their beauty. The fad also dictated the mouse fur be glued higher on the forehead, causing an oh-so-surprised expression.

#2 Arsenic Hair Removal

Women of the Renaissance, without the luxury of safer hair removal methods, like today’s laser hair removal, used a mixture of arsenic and lime to remove unwanted hair.

Although effective, this mixture was poisonous causing, at minimum, redness and painful blisters for weeks. Notes from the same time period suggested an alternative method, however: mixing vinegar and cat waste to burn off the hair.

#3 Feline-Assisted Hair Removal

Like most royalty of the past, Queen Elizabeth I dictated the beauty fads of her time. And she happened to fancy the look of a receding hairline and an eyebrow-less face. This left a sensuous giant-foreheaded appearance, thought to be the standard of beauty at the time.

Women wanting to achieve this look didn’t have the luxury of laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair from the front of their scalp and brow line. Instead they used a mixture of walnut oil or strips of cloth soaked in ammonia (harvested from their feline companions) and vinegar to burn the hair away.

#4 X-Ray Hair Removal

The early patients of Xray technology noticed a reduction of body hair after they were zapped for medical reasons. Unfortunately for a handful of women in the 1920s, X-ray hair removal was introduced with the Tricho System.

The X-ray hair removal system did, in fact, remove unwanted facial and body hair—but it also caused extensive wrinkling, discoloration, carcinoma and ulcerations. We can definitely add this process to the list of reasons to be thankful for laser hair removal in Salt Lake City.

Luckily, you don’t have to endure the questionable hair removal methods above to get that silky smooth skin. You can find the best laser hair removal in Salt Lake City and Utah County at Aesthetica Medical Spa. Call us to schedule your laser hair removal consultation today. Winter is the perfect time—don’t wait! 877.580.2622.

4 Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time for Laser Tattoo Removal

By Aesthetica @ Nov 19, 2014 | 0 comments

The colder temperatures have a lot of us missing the longer, warmer days of summer. However, winter is actually the prefect time for many beauty treatments at Salt Lake City medical spas—including laser tattoo removal. Read our post about laser hair removal during cold winter months here.

 
Learn four reasons why wintry weather makes it the ideal time to erase unwanted body art at Inklifters at Aesthetica Medical Spa.
 
1.   It’s easier to shun the sun.
At Aesthetica, we are always preaching how avoiding the sun will benefit your skin. But it is particularly important to avoid direct sunlight after laser tattoo removal. Doing so gives the treated skin a better chance to heal.
 
Salt Lake City laser tattoo removal patients should wear SPF 40 sunscreen on the treated area and avoid tanning for a minimum of 14 days, depending on how long it takes for the skin to heal completely. With our high elevation and predisposition to outdoor summer activities in Utah, winter conditions often mean less sun exposure, making it a great time to start the laser tattoo removal process.
 
2. Winter can keep your head above water.
Clients should be careful when exposing the treated area to water for several days or weeks after laser tattoo removal treatment.
 
Clients will need to keep the treated area out of the direct stream of water—even in the shower—for the first few days after laser tattoo removal. Completely submerging the area shouldn’t be done until it is completely healed, often takes several weeks after treatment. This means fewer lake, pool and beach days, which could disrupt summer vacation plans and weekend getaways.
 
3. Things may get hairy.
Clients should avoid shaving the treated area until the skin has completely healed after laser tattoo removal.
 
This could be a bit of a challenge for someone who doesn’t want to go au natural while removing a leg tattoo, for example. Winter’s long pants, skirts and tights keep your hairy secret under wraps while you erase unwanted body art at Inklifters.
 
4. Gives you time before next bikini season. 
Some of us prefer to hibernate during the colder months. But we often overlook the opportunity winter gives us to tackle beauty and fitness to-dos to prepare for the next pool season.
 
Picosure laser tattoo removal requires fewer treatments than older q-switched laser systems, but you will still need to dedicate several months to complete the process. Beginning tattoo removal at Inklifters now can make sure you are ready to show off your newly restored skin when temperatures heat up.
 
Experience Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal
Thinking about laser tattoo removal? The Inklifters experts at Aesthetica Medical Spa, the exclusive provider of Picosure in Salt Lake City and Utah County, are ready to answer your questions.
 
Give us a call at 877.580.2622 to schedule your no-obligation laser tattoo removal consultation today.
