Get all the hairy details about laser hair removal treatment.

Noticing that the peach fuzz on your face is a little darker than you would like? Hate having to shave, pluck, tweeze, and wax regularly? If so, laser hair removal may be perfect for you! Read on to learn about the benefits of this treatment from Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH.

How does laser hair removal work?

During your treatment, we will glide a handheld laser over the area or areas you wish to treat. The light from the laser detects the hair’s pigment, which the light then heats up. This heat then damages the follicle and hair bulb to prevent the hair from growing back. The length of treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area, as the face may only take 10 minutes to complete while the back could take up to one hour.

What areas can I treat with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be used just about anywhere that hair grows (pretty convenient, right?). The most popular treatment areas include,

  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Bikini line
  • Legs
  • Armpits
  • Back

When will I see results?

Since hair grows cyclically, this means that one session won’t be enough to remove all the hair. You will need anywhere from 6-12 sessions to see the full results, and you’ll begin to see a difference in about two to three weeks.

Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Most people dealing with unwanted hair can benefit from undergoing laser hair removal. Most laser treatments today are safe and effective for all skin tones and hair types (the hair just needs to be dark enough for the laser to pick up its pigment). A simple consultation with our Dayton, OH, cosmetic doctor will be able to determine whether you are right for laser hair removal.

Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that offers a simple way for people to look younger without the use of plastic surgery. Read on to botoxlearn how Dr. Christopher Sesslar of Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, helps his patients improve their appearance through this amazing procedure!

Should I choose Botox?

Botox injections paralyze the muscles that are used to make facial expressions, such as squinting and frowning. When these muscles don't contract, your skin relaxes and becomes smoother, thus minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. You'll begin to notice a difference in your skin about a week after your treatment, although it may take up to two weeks to see the full effects of the injections.

Botox results typically last three to four months, although scheduling regular follow-up injections with your Dayton doctor can help you maintain your results.

Botox may be a good choice for you if:

  • You want to look younger: Botox offers an excellent way to diminish noticeable lines and wrinkles that make you look older. Although it's very effective in treating fine lines and wrinkles, it's not the best option for deep wrinkles.
  • You look tired or angry: Wrinkles and lines, particularly those that develop on your forehead or between the eyes, can make you look as if you're exhausted or perpetually in a bad mood. Botox smooths forehead furrows and "11" lines between your eyes, giving your appearance a noticeable boost.
  • You have crow's feet: Crow's feet, those fine lines that fan out from the corners of your eyes, contribute to the aging effect. Luckily, botox injections can make the lines much less obvious.
  • You don't like the way your mouth looks: Botox also improves the appearance of fine lines around your mouth, softens nasolabial fold lines that extend from your nose to your mouth and minimizes marionette lines that bracket either side of your mouth.
  • You're in good health: As long as you're healthy, Botox may be a good option for you!
