How Soon Can Results Be Seen Following Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a popular and permanent method of hair removal. With laser hair removal, you can say goodbye to unwanted hair growth virtually anywhere on the body, from the arms to the legs to the face and bikini line. 

In laser hair removal, the light energy from the laser targets the pigment of the unwanted hair. The pigment absorbs the light energy, which converts into heat, destroys the hair follicles, and inhibits future hair growth. With this process, unwanted hair is kept away for longer than with other hair removal methods, such as shaving, tweezing, and waxing. (more…)

Clear Away Sun-Damaged Skin with a CO2 Laser

Damaged Skin

If you’re noticing signs of sun damage on the skin, you’re not alone. Sun-damaged skin is a common complaint among patients, as the sun’s harsh UV rays are capable of causing discoloration, sun spots, and even premature wrinkles. While it can be frustrating to see sun damage every time you look in the mirror, a non-surgical solution is available to help you achieve clear, rejuvenated skin: CO2 laser resurfacing

What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

As an ablative treatment, the CO2 laser utilizes light energy to remove the outermost layer of the skin and heat the layer beneath, called the dermis, to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. At Florida Face & Body, we use fractional laser technology, meaning that the laser only targets a fraction of the skin at a time. This allows for excellent precision during CO2 laser treatment, ensuring that the healthy skin surrounding the damaged skin is left alone.  (more…)

Say Bye-Bye to Dark Under-Eye Circles

Dark Under-Eye CirclesAre you struggling with dark under-eye circles? This prevalent cosmetic concern often impacts people in their later years, which contributes to a tired, aging appearance. At Florida Face and Body, we offer multiple treatments to eliminate under-eye circles for a rejuvenated look. 

Understanding Under-Eye Circles

Many people assume that puffy, dark under-eye circles are caused by fluid. This, however, is a misconception. The puffy appearance is caused by fat. Over time, as the skin ages, it loses strength, volume, and structure. This causes it, as well as the muscle and fat beneath the skin, to thin out. This makes orbital fat visible from the surface of the skin, creating the appearance of under-eye circles.  (more…)

Treating Acne with IPL

Treating AcneAcne is an extremely common skin condition, impacting as many as 50 million people in the United States every year. While acne is the most prevalent among teenagers, it can also remain in your 20s, 30s, and even 40s. So, if over-the-counter acne treatments just aren’t cutting it for your complexion, you may want to consider professional treatment. 

At Florida Face and Body, we offer IPL therapy for acne. This potent treatment is an ideal choice for acne and damaged skin. Non-invasive and precise, IPL therapy can improve the appearance of your skin by eliminating acne. 

What is IPL Therapy?

IIPL stands for intense pulsed light. During IPL therapy, a range of pulsed light wavelengths are administered to the skin with a high-precision device. This method can be used to address many skin concerns, including scarring and hyperpigmentation. For acne, however, it works by eradicating the bacteria and excess sebum that can lead to acne. The pigment cells in the skin absorb IPL energy, which converts into heat. This heat then kills acne-causing bacteria in the pores. (more…)
