This will help restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors, & making it smoother, vibrant, & younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will target & eliminate many of the fine vessels that cause redness & the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
What Areas Can Be Treated?Any areas of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are for the face, neck, back of the hands, chest, & shoulders.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?From 2 to 5 treatments, at 2-4 week intervals, will produce the desired results. You may benefit from additional treatments depending on the severity of your condition.

For some pigmented lesions you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading & flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine wrinkles & pores will be less noticeable, & sun spots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, & the area treated. Your physician will provide you w/ complete information about the post treatment care & results.
Will It Be Uncomfortable?The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, & safe. There should be minimal or no discomfort; however, this varies from patient to patient & depends on the depth of the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Exactly Is Botox Cosmetic?Botox cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacterium. During treatment, very low doses of botox cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, & no recovery time is needed. Within days, you may see an improvement that can last up to 4 months.
How Does Botox Cosmetic Work?Those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows form over time as the result of muscle activity. Botox® cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles between your brows. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
When Will I See Results From a Botox Cosmetic Treatment?Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, & results can last for up to 4 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men & women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better 1 month after treatment.
How Long Does Botox Cosmetic Last?Results from treatment w/ botox cosmetic can last for up to 4 months. If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows gradually will look like they did before treatment.
Is Treatment w/ Botox Cosmetic Painful?Discomfort is usually minimal & brief. Prior to injecting, your physician may choose to numb the area w/ a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Many people are in & out of the physician’s office without downtime following botox® cosmetic treatment.
Who Should Not Use Botox Cosmetic?Botox cosmetic should not be used in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) & in individuals w/ known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in the formulation. Patients w/ neuromuscular disorders such as als, myasthenia gravis or lambert-eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.
Will I Experience Any Side Effects?The most common side effects following injection include temporary eyelid droop & nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated w/ the injection. Patients w/ certain neuromuscular disorders such as als, myasthenia gravis, or lambert-eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.
Will My Facial Expressions Continue to Look Natural?Although the results are visible, a treatment w/ botox cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had work done. " The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles & creases between your brows.
What Will Happen to the Frown Lines Between My Brows if I Choose Not to Continue Treatments?If you do not continue treatments, the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows will gradually look like they did before treatment.
Is Botox Cosmetic Affordable?When considering your facial aesthetic options, botox cosmetic is quite affordable. According to an american society for aesthetic plastic surgery survey, botox cosmetic is one of the low-entry-cost facial aesthetic procedures in the united states. Like other appearance-related investments, such as hair coloring & cuts, teeth whitening, & chemical peels, the cost must be weighed relative to your expectations. Consult your doctor for further information.
Pioneered by the French Physician, Dr. Michael Pistor, Mesotherapy Is a Non-Surgical, Painless Injection Technique w/ a Broad Range of Applications. Mesotherapy Promotes the Body's Circulatory, Lymphatic, & Immune System to Create a Biological Response & Reverse Abnormal Biology.
Mesotherapy Is a Safe & Effective Alternative for the Treatment of Cellulite, Weight Loss, & Face & Neck Rejuvenation. Unlike Surgery, Mesotherapy Is Virtually Painless, Requires No Post-Operative Recovery Time, Requires No Heavy Bandages or Girdles, & No Anesthesia Is Necessary.
While Many Surgical Procedures Require One to Two Weeks of Recovery, Patients Undergoing Mesotherapy Have No Interruptions to Their Daily Life, While Obtaining a Natural Cosmetic Rejuvenation. Mesotherapy Involves the Injection of a Customized Mixture of Vitamins, Amino Acids, & Medications, Placed Just Millimeters Under the Skin Into the Problematic Area. Just a "Drop" of Solution Is Used at Each Injection Site.
Mesotherapy Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Treatments Are Required?Generally, the average patient requires eight to ten treatments. However thin people w/ problem areas such as "love handles" or "saddlebags" may require less, whereas obese individuals may require more.
What Are the Side Effects?Side effects are generally limited to bruising. The bruises usually fade within one week.
Can I Go Back to Work After the Treatment?Yes. The procedure generally takes 30 minutes & requires no preparation or recovery time. Furthermore, no heavy bandages or girdles are used.
Are the Treatments Painful?The majority of patients experience minimal discomfort w/ mesotherapy. For those w/ lower pain thresholds, a numbing cream or pain reliever can be used.
How Long Do the Benefits Last?Treatment areas will remain free of unwanted fat as long as the patient maintains a healthy diet & exercise. Treatments for cellulite will require maintenance on a six-month to one-year basis.
How Many Treatments Are Required Before I See Results?It depends on the patient's body. Some patients see results after one treatment session while others may require four to five treatments to begin to see results. Often the patient's clothing will become looser & friends & family will tell the patient they appear thinner. However, mesotherapy is more about losing inches than losing large amounts of weight.
Is Mesotherapy Different From Liposuction?Yes, it is very different. Besides involving no anesthesia & surgical risk, mesotherapy requires no recovery time. Mesotherapy also removes the fat from the fat cell without destroying it. We believe this helps give mesotherapy its natural appearance. Also, if you gain weight after having mesotherapy, the fat will simply return to the treated area, unlike liposuction, where fat can start to occur in places that had been thin in the past, such as the arms, neck, face & calves.
Velasmooth by Syneron Is an Effective Treatment for Cellulite. Velasmooth Uses Deep Penetrating Radio Frequency Energy Combined w/ More Superficially Active Infrared Energy to Stimulate Fat Cell Metabolism Reducing the Size of the Fat Cells & Eliminating Cellulite. The Velasmooth Device Gently Kneads the Affected Area & Applies Pulsating Suction to Improve Local Circulation, Encouraging Lymphatic Drainage & Elimination of Fat Byproducts. The Suction Acts to Stretch Fibrous Bands That Cause Dimples Resulting in a Smoothing Out of Cellulite. Patients Can Resume Normal Activity Immediately Following Treatment. It Is Effective for All Skin Types. So Far, Clinical Studies Have Consistently Demonstrated Up to a 50% Reduction in the Appearance of Cellulite w/ the Added Benefit of Lost Inches.
Velasmooth Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Velasmooth?The velasmooth is the first medical device for cellulite. The velasmooth combines vacuum suction, mechanical rollers, & elos heating through infrared light & bipolar rf energy. Reduction in cellulite & contouring of lipodystrophies (unwanted lumps, bumps & bulges) are the treatment goals for velasmooth; most patients achieve some reduction in circumferential measurement around treated areas.
What Is Cellulite?Cellulite is a phenomenon that occurs primarily in women but sometimes in men as well. Uneven tension within the hypodermal layer of fat creates an uneven skin surface & dimpling. Hypertrophied adipocytes, trapped lymph & poor circulation all contribute to the cellulite phenomenon.
How Does the Velasmooth Work?Vacuum suction & massage from the mechanical rollers draw circulation into the local area for increased oxygen availability, as well as manipulation of the tissue for drainage of trapped fluids through the lymphatic system. Heat from the infrared light source & the bi-polar rf is deployed into the hypodermis to facilitate the use of energy from adipocytes in this layer. Use of these stored triglycerides results in the shrinkage of the actual fat cell & reduces the total volume within the fat chamber. Focal aggressive treatment to specific lipodystrophic areas such as “love handles” & “saddlebags” results in contouring of the area. There is often visible & measurable contouring of the lumps & bumps as evidenced by post-treatment photos, girth measurements, & what most patients love the most…. How their favorite pair of jeans seem to fit much better! Men seem to respond very well to velasmooth treatments for contouring of torso & abdominal areas.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?Most patients achieve noticeable changes in contouring & skin tightening after 10 sessions, & first start seeing a difference after the first 5-6 treatment sessions. Treatments are performed twice weekly. Some patients w/ more severe cellulite or lipodystrophy would benefit from continuing the twice-weekly protocol for up to 16 sessions. Maintenance treatments are done monthly thereafter. The recommended program is: sign up all patients for 16 treatment sessions. For those who achieve a satisfactory result by 10-12 sessions, they can apply the remaining sessions toward maintenance program. Some patients may need to go to 16 treatment sessions for optimal results, starting out w/ a package of 16 simply helps to manage patient expectations.
How Long Is the Treatment?Treatment times may vary depending on how many treatment areas & the total surface area treatment areas. Typical treatment time ranges from 45-60 minutes.
How Does the Patient Tolerate Velasmooth Treatments?The treatment can feel like a warm deep tissue massage for some patients, while it may be uncomfortable & “pinchy” for others. The discomfort is usually related to low tolerance to aggressive skin manipulation & stretching from the rollers & the vacuum suction. In these cases the vacuum suction is reduced to a tolerated level, & progressively increased according to individual patient tolerance. There is some pinkness to the skin & the areas feel warm for a short while after a completed treatment session. Normal activities are resumed the next day. Some patients may experience bruising in the treated areas, especially if they are prone to bruising easily.
How Is Velasmooth Different From Other Cellulite Machines?Other types of cellulite reduction equipment offered only massage & suction, rendering it far less effective. Since the infrared light & radio frequency of velasmooth actually heat the fat cells, the effect is one of dispersal & removal of the cells - not simply a breaking up of some of the hardened tissue.
Is There Downtime?No. Velasmooth requires no time "off". You may return to your regular activities immediately.
Changes’ Main Objective Is to Provide Solutions for Individuals to Achieve Results They Desire in Their Bodies. Many People Believe That Common Problems Such as Cellulite, Sagging Skin, Flaccidness, Varicose Veins, Stretch Marks, & Scarring Are Inevitable as the Body Ages. However, Changes Has Four Different Procedures to Dramatically Decrease the Appearance of These Common Nuisances.
Isogei (I-So-J)Isogei uses isometric muscle contractions to exercise the muscles- without the gym membership. This method tenses the muscle & strengthens it, by delicately stimulating individual fibers of a muscle group that increases the strength of that muscle up to 100%. This lifts any tissues (I.E. Breasts, face, buttocks) attached to this muscle. The size of the attached tissue is not reduced, just lifted & strengthened. Isogei can safely be done everyday. During the session, you can expect a tingling sensation, followed by a tensing of the muscle. You will see results after the first treatment, though a series of 10 to 20 sessions is highly recommended for optimal results. The effects of isogei can be easily maintained once muscle memory has been obtained. Once memory is achieved, the results will remain by simply completing an additional isogei session once or twice a month after reaching your goal.
How Often Can I Have Isogei?Isogei may be applied every day.
What Does Isogei Feel Like?At first you will feel a slight tingling & then a tensing of the muscle.

Are There Any Reasons Why I Could Not Have Isogei Performed?Some conditions may need to be discussed w/ your doctor first, but most do not exclude you from experiencing isogei. Isogei may not be performed in any area w/ implants or metal pins.
Transion (Tran-See-On)Transion combines two muscle movements created by electrical stimulation to a skeletal muscle group. The muscles contracts in a natural isotonic movement at maximum intensity without injury. This tones the muscle & depletes the muscle’s energy source so rapidly that the body requires its’ stored fat to metabolically breakdown & continue to supply the muscle w/ energy. Each 25 minutes session approximated 3 hours of concentrated exercise. You can expect to feel a slight tingling at first, then a comfortable contraction of the muscle group that is being stimulated. This can be performed at least twice a week, up to as much as every other day. You will see a noticeable improvement after the first session, though a series of 10-20 sessions is highly recommended.

Linfogei (Lin-Fo-J)Linfogei is an automated, effective method of lymphatic drainage. The treatment works in conjunction w/ the heart beat & muscle contraction to produce gentle pressure along the lymph vessels. The lymph system does not have its own pump, so this action enhances lymph drainage, resulting in improvement of common problems (I.E. Edemas, weight gain, cellulite, varicose veins, acne, etc.). You can expect to feel a slight tingling at first, then a comfortable contraction of the muscle group that is being stimulated. This can be performed a maximum of every other day. You will see a noticeable improvement after the first session, though a series of 10-20 sessions is highly recommended.
How Often Can Linfogei Be Performed?Linfogei is performed a maximum of every other day.
Are There Any Reasons Why I Could Not Experience Linfogei?Some conditions may need to be discussed w/ your doctor first, but most do not exclude you from having linfogei.

Microgei (My-Cro-J)Microgei is a treatment that uses low frequency & low intensity electrical stimulation to increase circulation, to tighten & tone the skin. This procedure can be done daily, if you choose. You can expect to feel a slight tingling at first, then a comfortable contraction of the muscle group that is being stimulated. You will see an improvement after the first session, though a series of 10-20 sessions is highly recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Thermage Procedure?Thermage® is a safe, non-invasive, no downtime, single treatment, cosmetic procedure that is clinically proven to tighten, contour & rejuvenate facial skin to help naturally restore a more youthful appearance. The thermage procedure is administered in a doctor’s office using the thermacool™ system, fda cleared for the treatment of facial wrinkles, which utilizes a unique form of capacitive radiofrequency (crf) technology to tighten existing collagen & stimulate new natural collagen production. Immediate results are visible & continue to improve for up to six months. The thermage procedure is fast & easy, & requires no downtime from normal activities. Unlike lasers, the procedure can be performed on patients of all skin color.
How Does the Thermage Procedure Work?The procedure works by heating deep collagen fibers in the skin & underlying tissue, while protecting the skin's surface w/ a cooling spray. The treatment is performed w/ the thermacool device. A thermatip™, attached to a handheld device, briefly touches the skin, delivering the non-invasive crf energy deep beneath the skin. This deep uniform heating action causes the deep structures in the skin & underlying tissue to immediately tighten. An ocular plastic shield will be placed on your eye to protect it from the treatment. Over time, new & remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten skin & renew facial contours.
How Long Does the Thermage Procedure Take?The thermage procedure is a completely non-invasive, safe treatment that is performed only in a doctor’s office. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure may take as little as 20 minutes or up to two hours.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?Unlike many laser procedures requiring four or more sessions, a single thermage treatment produces results in the majority of patients. The treating doctor will determine the course of treatment that is right for each patient, based on the patient’s needs & goals.
When Will I See Results?Immediate results are visible, & improve over time. Measurable tightening & contouring improvements appear gradually over a two to six month time period following a single treatment session.
What Does the Thermage Procedure Feel Like?With each touch of the thermatip device, the patient experiences a brief, deep heating sensation as the crf energy is delivered to the skin & underlying tissue. This deep heating sensation is an indication that collagen is reaching effective temperatures for tightening. To protect the skin & make the treatment more comfortable, the surface of the skin is cooled before, during, & after each application of crf energy. Patient feedback on the level of heat sensation experienced during the procedure will help guide the doctor to balance procedural comfort w/ maximum results. .
Is There Any Special Preparation or Follow-Up Regime?No. Unlike surgery, there is no pre-procedure preparation, such as blood work or fasting required. One can return to regular activities immediately following treatment & there is no special care after treatment. Some patients exhibit a temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, this usually resolves within 24 hours. Good skin care & sunscreens are recommended as part of your regular skin care regimen. The only signs of treatment are naturally smoother, younger, & healthier skin.
How Long Will the Effects of the Thermage Procedure Last?The thermage procedure immediately tightens existing collagen & stimulates new natural collagen production for up to six months following the treatment. Unpublished reports by experienced cosmetic doctors indicate that results may last for years & are based on the patient's natural aging process.
Is the Thermage Procedure Safe?The thermage procedure has an excellent safety record. With over 190,000 estimated worldwide patient treatments to date the reported incidence of side effects is less than 0.4%. The most frequently reported incidents are classified as swelling, redness, bumps, & blisters on or around the treated area. These side effects have disappeared in a few days or weeks. A rare (<0.11%) but longer lasting side effect described as a surface irregularity has also been reported. Consult w/ your physician regarding this & any other questions you may have on the safety record of the thermage procedure.
Is Thermage the Only Radiofrequency Technology on the Market Today?While there are other skin care technologies that use radiofrequency energy, only the thermage proprietary capacitive radiofrequency technology delivers deep uniform volumetric heating powerful enough to naturally tighten & contour skin & underlying tissue. Also, thermage achieves results in a single treatment compared to other technologies requiring five or more treatment sessions.

Ow Does G-Shot® Work?The g-shot is a painless office procedure performed in your doctor’s office under local anesthesia. The actual injection usually takes less than 8 seconds & the total office visit time is usually less than 30 minutes. A specially designed speculum is used to assist in the deliver a specified amount of human engineered collagen directly into the g-spot after local anesthesia. The g-shot® augments (enlarges) the g-spot. This results in a g-spot about the size of a quarter in width, & one fourth of an inch in height (meaning the projection into the vagina). Note that results do vary.
What to ExpectBefore you try & schedule your first g-shot treatment consultation, you probably have some questions, such as: how long will it take? How long will the results last?

Clearscan w/ Lapg Is the Only System That Treats Individual Hairs Rapidly & Non-Sequentially for Greater Comfort & Efficacy.
Clearscan Can Rapidly Treat an Area Up to 30 Mm by 30 Mm in a Single Placement. Lower Pulse Energies Are Required & There Is Less Heat Build-Up in the Deeper Layers Than w/ the Large-Field Beams That Treat Several Hairs at a Time. The Smaller Beam Size Also Leads to Higher Available Fluences & Shorter Pulse Widths for Treating a Greater Variety of Hairs. Another Advantage of the Robotic Technology Is the Ability to Scan Individual Pulses Over an Area Non-Sequentially, Allowing Heat to Dissipate Before Adjacent Hairs Are Treated, Resulting in Greater Safety & Comfort.
Lapg Is the First Technology to Use Non-Selective Bulk Tissue Cooling for Greater Comfort & Safety. Instead of Selectively Cooling & Protecting the Surface, Lapg Enables the Use of Continuous Deep Cooling for Many Seconds to Remove Heat From the Follicles & Surrounding Tissue Resulting in Added Patient Comfort & Safety. Hair Follicles Make Up a Small Percentage of the Area of Skin So Most of the Laser Energy Results in Tissue Heating. Competitive Systems Use Pulsed Selective Cooling to Remove Heat Only From the Surface, Whereas the Clearscan Lapg Sapphire Cooling Plate Removes Heat Continuously & Non-Selectively From Bulk Tissue for Maximum Comfort & Allows Higher More Effective Fluence to Be Used.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Profile Clearscan™?Clearscan for hair removal gives you the highest performance available, taking advantage of robotic technology in sciton's lapg computer-guided scanner for fast, ideal beam placement & perfect coverage resulting in improved efficacy & fewer treatments.
What Is Clearscan?Clearscan is an infrared laser that can selectively target microstructures such as hair follicles. It is very effective for lighter skin types, & because of the relatively low absorption of this light by melanin, it is the best choice when treating darker skin types. Additionally, the ability to safely treat sun-tanned skin makes this the treatment of choice for active individuals.
What Treatments Are Available?Waxing, shaving, & the use of depilatory creams are well-established methods for hair removal, although temporary. Electrolysis is the traditional tried & tested method for permanent hair removal, but is often very time-consuming & inefficient. These days, the most popular & most effective method for hair removal is the use of lasers which have been specifically designed to damage & destroy many hairs in a short time, & w/ little chance of complications. People are interested in laser hair removal because it involves new & efficient technology, & because its effects are permanent in over most of its subjects.
What Is Laser Hair Removal? How Does It Work?Laser hair removal offers patients a safe, fast, & effective alternative for dealing w/ unwanted hair. Lasers work by emitting a specialized light that is passed through the skin & preferentially absorbed by its target, be it an unwanted blood vessel, birthmark, tattoo, or in this case, hair. The laser used in hair removal targets the melanin (color) in the hair follicle, damaging the follicle & removing the hair. Laser hair removal is safe enough to be used on all body parts, including the face, back, underarms, bikini line, legs, & arms.
Can All Skin Colors Be Treated?Yes all skin types i through vi can be treated. Skin type i is very fair, always burns, never tans (usually blonde hair & blue eyes). Skin type vi never burns (black skin, black hair).
Can Tanned Skin Be Treated?Tanned skin can be treated safely, but always inform your physician if you have been tanning or exposed to the sun within the last three weeks, & he will adjust your treatment regime accordingly to give you the safest most effective experience.
Can in-Grown Hair Be Treated?The infrared energy delivered by clearscan can be used to remove all types of hair. Sometimes “shaving bumps” can cover a follicle, but the penetrating light of the clearscan can still be safely used.
What Happens During Hair Removal Treatment?Your physician will discuss the treatment w/ you & decide if you need a topical anesthetic cream. The area of your skin that is to be treated will be scanned w/ laser light from the profile system. Treatment time will depend upon the area to be treated. A system for cooling you skin will be used to remove heat as it leaves the follicles & should ensure a comfortable treatment. However, since the sensation varies from individual to individual, a topical anesthesia can be provided. Let your physician know if you are very sensitive.
How Does It Work?The clearscan laser selectively targets your hair follicles & heats them w/ infra-red energy. Unlike other processes the laser beam treats many hairs at once making treatment of large areas practical. The profile employs a unique computer guided scanning system that automates the treatment, ensuring that you skin is rapidly & evenly treated. The computer sets the parameters & places the beam in an optimum pattern for your skin. You will have a safe, fast, effective, & gentle treatment.
Laser Vein Treatment
Approximately 50% to 60% of Men & Women Worldwide Have Unsightly Leg & Veins. While Sclerotherapy Is an Option for the Removal of Superficial Leg Veins, There Are Known Side Effects, & Some Veins Will Not Respond.
Facial Telangiectasia & Unsightly Blood Vessels on the Face Can Affect Both Men & Women. This Condition Can Be Due to Sun Damage, Smoking, Heredity, Hormones of Other Factors. While Other Treatments Exist for These Conditions, Undesired Cosmetic Side-Effects Can Occur, Such as Purpura, Which Is Purplish Discolorations Produced by Small Bleeding Vessels Near the Surface of the Skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Profile Clearscan Vascular Laser?Clearscan is a new laser using infrared energy & the new standard for the treatment of many skin conditions. Clearscan allows your physician to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, lesions, & discoloration of your skin. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin condition & desired result.
What Conditions Can Be Treated?Rosacea, redness, telangiectasia, spider veins, facial veins, broken capillaries.
What Will the Clearscan Laser Do?Your physician will use clearscan to restore your skin's youthful appearance. Broken capillaries & other visible vascular structures will be gently eliminated from the visible layers of your skin's surface. Profile has the ability to provide a treatment that is optimized to your skin condition. Unwanted lesions will be preferentially heated by the laser energy & become less noticeable, some will disappear; & pigmented lesions will greatly improve.
What Areas Can Be Treated?All skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest & legs. Discuss your needs w/ your physicion.
Is There a Risk?There is little risk for the treatment of these benign comditions. In some cases repeat treatment will be necessary depending on your response to the treatment & the desired result.
How Long Will It Take Me to Recover?Your healing time will depend upon your actual treatment, & you may experience erythema (redness) which may last several days. There is virtually no recovery time & you may resume an active lifestyle immediately. Your physician can answer questions about temporary changes to your skin appearance & how it may be camouflaged.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?Some temporary redness may be present in the area that has been treated, however, this should subside within a few hours. Your skin will have a pink or red color that will resolve over time. You will need to avoid direct sun exposure, or use a sun block of at least spf 15 when outdoors.
Will It Be Uncomfortable?There is little to no discomfort, however this varies from patient to patient & depends on the depth of the treatment. There is no need for anesthesia & your physician will discuss your options to properly manage any discomfort from the treatment. There will be no posttreatment discomfort.
What Will Happen During the Procedure?Your eyes will be protected w/ safety shields or glasses. Clearscan's laser beam will be delivered to the area of your skin being treated. You may briefly feel a warm or hot sensation as the laser pulses are preferentially absorbed in the unwanted vessels, heating & destroying them. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated.
What Aftercare Will I Need?It is important to follow your physician's instructions. You may be given some skin care products & instructions on how to use them. This will minimize your risk for inflammation or redness & ensure the shortest response time. Any vessels or pigment denatured by the laser will be reabsorbed by your body over a period of time in a natural cleaning process. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately since they will no longer contain blood flow.
Your Skin Will Be Sensitive to Ultra-Violet Light & You Must Avoid Direct Sun Exposure. Most of the Conditions Treated by the Laser Will Have Been Caused by Sun Exposure, So Avoiding Sunlight Will Prolong Your New Youthful Appearance. You Need to Cover Your Skin or Use a Good Sunscreen Whenever You Go Outdoors.
What Is Laser Vein Treatment?Laser therapy is a proven treatment for treating unsightly broken & dilated vessels, as well as such other unwanted vascular lesions as rosacea, port wine stains, & other vascular birthmarks. In fact, the latest advances in laser technology have given us a method for removal that is safer, faster & more effective than previous methods.
How Does Laser Vein Treatment Work?Lasers work by emitting a specialized light that passes through the skin & is preferentially absorbed by its target, which can be an unwanted hair, birthmark, tattoo, or in this case, the hemoglobin (the red portion of blood) in the unwanted vessels. The heat from the laser causes the vein to break up & disappear. There are several lasers available that work remarkably well in treating unwanted veins.
What Can I Expect w/ the Procedure?Most people describe laser vein treatment as feeling like the snap of a rubber band against the skin. You may be given a topical anesthetic cream to numb the area to be treated. Any discomfort can be eased w/ the application of cool compresses. After treatment, you can immediately return to normal activities.
How Soon Will I See Results? Are There Any Side Effects?Because laser vein treatment works by causing the unwanted vein to break up & dissolve, resolution of the unwanted vein will take place over the course of several weeks. The most common side effect is bruising, or purpura around the treated area. This will resolve within days of the treatment. Your doctor can discuss any other risks of laser surgery w/ you personally.
What Are Facial Veins?Facial veins are fine blood vessels (otherwise known as telangiectasia) located on the face, usually around the nose & central cheeks. They can be the result of cumulative sun exposure, genetics, or rosacea. Many patients also refer to these as "broken" blood vessels or capillaries.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary? Is Treatment Permanent?Depending on the severity of the condition, multiple treatments may be required. Improvement generally lasts for several years, but over time new facial veins will develop, requiring a touch-up treatment at a later date.
Liposolve Is Truly Unique to the Padda Institute - Center for Laser Aand Aesthetic Medicine. This Comprehensive Solution to Unwanted Fat Combines Lipodissolve w/ Skintyte & Velasmooth to Give the Patient Not Only a Reduction in Fat, but Tightening of the Overlying Skin as Well, Without the Need of Skin Incision.
Liposolve Is Suitable for Men & Women Who Are Not Excessively Overweight, but Instead Have Certain Problem Areas of Fat That They Just Can’T Get Rid of w/ Diet & Exercise. Just About All Parts of the Body Can Be Treated w/ Liposolve: Abdomen, Arms, Thighs, Knees, Neck, Back, Bra Line, Saddlebags, the Lower Eyelids & the Area on the Back, Just Beside the Armpits. It Has Also Been the Answer to People Who Have Long Wanted to Have Liposuction but Are Too Scared to Undergo a Surgical Procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Lipodissolve?Lipodissolve is a treatment developed by the asal group in 2001, which currently consists of microinjections of phosphatidyl choline to force localized fat deposits to dissolve. Lipodissolve is now thought of as a potential supplement or possibly even replacement to larger liposuction procedures, in that both techniques permanently cause removal of the fat cell & its contents from the body.
What Is Liposolve?Liposolve is combination of lipodissolve microinjections, titan, our skin-tightening laser, & velasmooth, for recontouring developed to dissolve fat deposits & retract loose skin in the face & body.
Why Is Liposolve Better?The difficulty w/ traditional lipodissolve is that the individual performing the injections must have an excellent knowledge of the subcutaneous nerve structures in order to avoid unintentional nerve injection, & lipodissolve alone will not reduce residual skin sagging. Additionally, many individuals undergoing traditional lipodissolve develop subcutaneous scarring at the injection site due to localized fat necrosis, & some develop pain at the site of the injections. Liposolve addresses these issues, as the injections are only done by a trained physician, & reduction in loose skin is forced by a subsequent radiofrequency energy technique that prevents scar tissue from forming & tightens the skin.
How Do I Know if Liposolve Is Right for Me?You may be a candidate for liposolve if you have small areas of fat deposits that need reduction, or you are unable to undergo surgical lipoplasty.
What Happens During Liposolve?Lipodissolve microinjections target the fat deposits. When injections are done to the fat area you wish to have reduced, the medications in the injections initiate the fat to gradually loosen, liquefy, & finally dissolve through the natural process. Then the titan & velasmooth are applied within 10 days to retract loose skin & reshape the area.
How Long Is the Downtime or Recovery?Depending on body area treated, patients often return to normal activity immediately after treatment. Patients having facial treatments for double chins or facial fat will have extensive swelling & may wish to stay off from work 3-4 days, although it is not necessary. The normal time for swelling & soreness to disappear is one week. Some minor swelling may last longer.
How Fast Will I See Results?Treatments are repeated every 4-6 weeks apart. If you address large body areas, like the abdomen, & require several sessions you may notice minimal results between the first & second session, which generally improve w/ additional sessions. Many smaller areas, like double chins often give satisfactory results two months

Microlaserpeel Treats Skin Conditions Associated w/ Aging & Active Life Styles. Microlaserpeel Is the Ideal Treatment for Those Patients That Want Improved Skin w/ Immediate Lasting Results, Little Time Off, Discomfort, or Post-Treatment Care.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who Should Consider a Microlaserpeel?The patient looking for better results than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels can offer, yet, still has little time for the healing process.
How Is the Microlaserpeel Different From Microdermabrasion?Generally, microdermabrasion only removes the outer layer (stratum corneum, 10-15 microns) of the skin. Patients may become dissatisfied when the perceived results do not equal expense & the number of procedures required.
The Microlaserpeel Is a Minimal to Full Epidermal Peel (20-50 Microns). Because This Procedure Goes Deeper Into the Epidermis, It Is the Perfect Step Between Microdermabrasion & Deeper Peels.
How Often Does a Microlaserpeel Need to Be Done?One procedure could be sufficient for at least 6 to12 months, but additional procedures can be performed as required. A package of three to four treatments may be best for you. Your physician will determine what is necessary.
What Can the Patient Expect?Smoother, healthier more vibrant skin. You will notice a significant & immediate change in skin texture & tightness when compared to microdermabrasion.
What Type of Anesthesia Is Used?A topical anesthetic such as ela-max, emla or betacaine plus is applied thirty to 45 minutes before the procedure.
Do I Have to Wear Any Type of Dressing or Bandage After the Procedure?No! Your physician will prescribe an ointment such as aquafore or vaseline. This is used as a barrier to keep the air away from your skin while you grow new epithelium. You will probably use it for one to two days. After that, a moisturizer can be used.
How Long Is the Healing Process?The healing process varies from patient to patient but will generally take from two to four days. The procedure can be performed on thursday or friday & you can return to work the following monday. Immediately following the procedure you will feel as if you have a bad sunburn. You will have minor sloughing & itchiness the following day. By day two, redness will begin to fade & by day three any redness can be easily covered by makeup.

What Is the Profractional Procedure Like?Profractional is a fast, comfortable procedure that is done in your physician’s office. The procedure normally takes 15 – 30 minutes depending on the condition & the size of the area being treated. A numbing cream may be applied prior to your appointment to aid in comfort during the procedure.
How Many Profractional Treatments Will I Need?Profractional is typically done in a series of 1 – 4 treatments, spaced 3 – 6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Your skin care specialist will personalize a treatment plan based upon the level of improvement you desire. You may also combine profractional w/ a microlaserpeel or other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?Immediately following the procedure, you may experience a mild redness, resembling a light sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes about 1 – 3 days & most patients can return to work & apply make-up within 1 – 2 days after the treatment.
What Special After-Treatment Care Will I Need?It is very important to follow your skin care specialist’s post-treatment instructions. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun-damage & premature aging of your skin.

Waxing Is Accomplished by Spreading a Wax Combination Thinly Over the Skin. A Cloth or Paper Strip Is Then Pressed on the Top & Ripped Off w/ a Quick Movement Against the Direction of Hair Growth.This Removes the Wax Along w/ the Hair.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Waxing Hair Removal Work?A wax combination is spread thinly over the skin. A cloth strip is pressed on the top & then removed w/ a quick movement removing the wax along w/ the hair & dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth.
What Effect Does Waxing Hair Removal Have on the Skin?As dead skin cells are removed in this process the skin can feel quite smooth afterwards. The hair waxing action does cause the skin to sting & many find a soothing skin healing cream to be helpful afterwards. Some persons find the skin reacts w/ redness & bumps, which disappear after a few hours.
Are There Any Health Precautions to Keep in Mind w/ Waxing Hair Removal?Some physicians do not recommend hair waxing for persons suffering from diabetes or who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection. Users of retin-a, renova, differin or accutane are advised not to use hair waxing on the face as these medications tend to weaken the skin & tearing of the skin may occur when the wax is removed. Hair waxing should not be done on areas of skin affected by warts, pimples, moles or rashes or on skin that is irritated, chapped or suffering from sunburn. Never apply wax to peeling, broken skin or varicose veins. Never apply wax to the nipples when removing hair from the breast area.
On What Body Areas Wax Be Used?It is wise to test a small area first but generally waxing can be used on most parts of the body. The exceptions are the male genitals, nipples, inside the ears & nose, eyelashes.
How Long Before Hair Reappears?Generally between 3 & 8 weeks. Less hair re-grows & it is generally finer. Eventually some hair never re-grows.
How Can the Pain or Discomfort Be Minimized?A simple way to greatly minimize the discomfort is to press hard on the skin right after the waxing strip is pulled off. To emphasize again, do this immediately after the strip is pulled off. Press down hard w/ the cushion of the finger or the palm of the hand on larger areas.

Concentrated Pigment (Coverage) the Word "Pigment" Usually Means a Colored or White Compound That Is Insoluble in a Solvent. (the Word "Dye" Generally Refers to a Chemical Compound, Most Often of Petroleum Origin, Which Is Soluble.) Our Pigments Are Made From Micronized Minerals Only.
The Reason Our Powders Work So Well as a Natural-Looking Beauty Makeup and/or a Camouflage Is Because the Concentrated Pigment Not Only Masks Color but Interacts w/ Light to Create a Soft-Focus Effect That Creates an Illusion of Perfection. A Small Amount of the Minerals Will Cover Most Types of Redness Including Acne, Rosacea & Erythema (Redness). Adhere Because of the Micronization Process Our Mineral Particles Undergo, They Bind Together on Application. When Applied to a Clean, Moisturized Skin the Surface Tension This Creates Overcomes Gravity & Holds the Minerals Tightly to the Skin. The Result Is That They Resist Running, Creasing & Smearing & Will Only Come Off w/ a Cleanser or Our Magic Mitt. No Special Cleanser Is Required. Anti-Inflammatory Titanium Dioxide & Zinc Oxide Have Anti-Inflammatory Properties & Will Help to Calm Erythema. Zinc Oxide Is Also Anti-Microbial.

How Does Latisse Work?
Latisse Is Believed to Affect the Growth (Anagen) Phase of the Eyelash Hair Cycle in Two Ways: First, It Increases the Length of This Phase; And Second, It Increases the Number of Hairs in This Growth Phase.
How Do I Apply Latisse?
Latisse Solution Is a Once-a-Day Treatment You Apply Yourself Each Evening to the Base of the Upper Eyelashes. Do Not Apply in Your Eye or to the Lower Lid Because Excess Hair Growth Outside the Treatment Area May Occur.
How Soon Will I See Results?Latisse users may see results at 8 weeks w/ full results at 12 to 16 weeks. The growth is gradual overnight, over time.
Is Latisse a Replacement for Mascara?No, latisse does not work in place of mascara. Latisse is a solution treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes & requires a prescription from a doctor. However, mascara can be used on your eyelashes in addition to latisse®.
Is Latisse (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution) 0.03% Different From Nonprescription Products That Indicate Eyelash Growth?Latisse solution is the first & only prescription treatment approved by the fda for inadequate or not having enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller & darker.
What if I Forget to Apply One Night? Or a Few Nights?If you miss an application or a few, don't try to catch up. Just apply the latisse treatment the next evening & stay on schedule.
What Happens if I Stop Using Latisse?If you stop using latisse, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
Can I Get a Prescription for Latisse From Any Doctor?First, ask your doctor if latisse is right for you. Although any doctor can prescribe latisse®, some may be more familiar w/ this product than others. That's why we encourage you to use the interactive "find-a-doctor" locator tool to find a doctor near you who may be more likely to know about this fda-approved treatment. When making an appointment, be sure to tell the receptionist that you want to find out more about latisse®.
What Are the Possible Side Effects of Latisse?The most common side effects after using latisse solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. Latisse solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where latisse® is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, & redness of the eyelids.
If You Develop a New Ocular Condition (E.G., Trauma or Infection), Experience a Sudden Decrease in Visual Acuity, Have Ocular Surgery, or Develop Any Ocular Reactions, Particularly Conjunctivitis & Eyelid Reactions, You Should Immediately Seek Your Physician's Advice Concerning the Continued Use of Latisse® Solution.
Are There Any Special Warnings Associated w/ Latisse Use?Latisse solution is intended for use on the skin of the upper eyelid margins at the base of the eyelashes. Refer to the illustration below. Do not apply to the lower eyelid. If you are using lumigan® or other products in the same class for elevated intraocular pressure (iop), or if you have a history of abnormal iop, you should only use latisse® under the close supervision of your physician.
Latisse Use May Cause Darkening of the Eyelid Skin Which May Be Reversible. Latisse Use May Also Cause Increased Brown Pigmentation of the Colored Part of the Eye Which Is Likely to Be Permanent.
It Is Possible for Hair Growth to Occur in Other Areas of Your Skin That Latisse Frequently Touches. Any Excess Solution Outside the Upper Eyelid Margin Should Be Blotted w/ a Tissue or Other Absorbent Material to Reduce the Chance of This From Happening. It Is Also Possible for a Difference in Eyelash Length, Thickness, Fullness, Pigmentation, Number of Eyelash Hairs, and/or Direction of Eyelash Growth to Occur Between Eyes. These Differences, Should They Occur, Will Usually Go Away if You Stop Using Latisse®.
What Should I Do if I Wear Contact Lenses?Contact lenses should be removed prior to application of latisse & may be reinserted 15 minutes following its administration.
What Should I Do if I Get Latisse in My Eye?Latisse solution is an ophthalmic drug product. If any gets into the eye, it is not expected to cause harm. The eye should not be rinsed.
Who Should Not Use Latisse?Do not use latisse solution if you are allergic to one of its ingredients.
What Are the Ingredients in Latisse?Active ingredient: bimatoprost inactive ingredients: benzalkonium chloride; sodium chloride; sodium phosphate, dibasic; citric acid; & purified water. Sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid may be added to adjust ph. The ph during its shelf life ranges from 6.8 — 7.8.
What Is Skin Hyperpigmentation?This is a common, usually harmless condition in which areas of skin become darker than the surrounding skin color. This occurs when there is an increase in the melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, in the skin. Skin hyperpigmentation is a possible side effect of latisse®, but may be reversible after discontinuation of the product.
What Is Elevated Intraocular Pressure (Iop)?This is a condition where the pressure inside the eye is higher than normal. Latisse may decrease iop. So talk to your doctor if you are using iop-lowering medications. Concurrent administration of latisse® & certain iop-lowering medications in ocular hypertensive patients should be closely monitored for changes in intraocular pressure.
What Should I Do if I Experience Eye Redness?Eye redness may occur immediately after use. Consult your doctor if the redness persists or you notice other symptoms as well. If you develop a new eye condition (E.G. Trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in visual acuity, have eye surgery, or develop any eye reactions, particularly conjunctivitis & eyelid reactions, you should immediately seek your physician’s advice concerning the continued use of latisse®.
Could Latisse Cause the Color of My Eyes to Change?Increased brown iris pigmentation has occurred when the same formulation of bimatoprost ophthalmic solution was instilled directly into the eye to treat elevated intraocular pressure/glaucoma. Although iris pigmentation was not reported in clinical studies w/ latisse®, patients should be advised about the potential for increased brown iris pigmentation which is likely to be permanent.
Why Do the Directions Say to Only Apply Latisse Solution to the Base of the Upper Eyelashes?A clinical trial of latisse was conducted on patients who applied the product to the base of their upper lashes only. Do not apply in your eye or to the lower lid. There is the potential for hair growth to occur in areas where latisse® solution comes in repeated contact w/ the skin surface. It is important to apply latisse® only to the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes using the accompanying sterile applicators, & to carefully blot any excess latisse® from the eyelid margin to avoid it running onto the cheek or other skin areas.
What Should I Do if I Experience Eye Itching?Eye itching may occur immediately after use. Consult your doctor if the itching persists or you notice other symptoms as well. If you develop a new eye condition (E.G. Trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in visual acuity, have eye surgery, or develop any eye reactions, particularly conjunctivitis & eyelid reactions, you should immediately seek your physician’s advice concerning the continued use of latisse®.
