Why Men Should Consider Laser Hair Removal

We know that men (and perhaps the women who love them) are having a love affair with beards right now. Men with beards are definitely trending, and they’re almost everywhere you look! However, there’s not much love for the hair on several other parts of a man’s body, which is why they like to get it removed. Men now know that they have excellent options when it comes to removing unwanted hair. Shaving, waxing, and trimming aside – have you tried laser hair removal? We specialize in laser hair removal for men and women.

Laser Hair Removal Works!

You may have seen this familiar shot used in movies: a man who’s having his back waxed screams out in agony during the process. OUCH! We don’t consider waxing, especially a large area, a fun time. And while there’s much less pain with shaving (unless you nick yourself, of course), shaving can irritate your skin and cause ingrown hairs. Enter the best way for men to get rid of unwanted hair: laser hair removal.

What is laser hair removal, you ask? Laser hair removal involves using a concentrated beam of light to penetrate hair follicles. That light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, damaging the hair follicles enough to inhibit future hair growth. Depending on the area being targeted, it normally takes 4 to 6 treatments to be effective. Here’s something else exciting to share – you can use laser hair removal on several parts of the body. The most commonly requested areas men want hair removed include around the ears, the back, back of the neck, genital area, stomach, shoulders, and the eyebrows (unibrow). Being able to target hair in some hard-to-get-to areas is just one of the many benefits of laser hair removal. Here are some more that will have you making an appointment with us, in no time!

  • Reduces hair growth & results are long-lasting.
  • You’ll have smoother skin.
  • You’ll be able to show off more muscle definition.
  • You won’t have to worry about irritated skin and ingrown hairs.
  • Will boost your self-confidence.

Does your handsome, bearded guy need a shape-up? Laser hair removal treatment can do that too.

Back Acne

Back Acne Causes and How to Treat Them By Summer

The summer is quickly approaching. Is your body summer-ready? You’ve been living at the gym and eating your best and your body looks amazing – but for that acne on your back. Yes, your bacne. What are you going to do about that? And you know it’s not going to go away on its own. We have a great suggestion! Have you tried non-invasive laser treatments for back acne? Before we get into laser treatments, let’s first examine the various causes of back acne.

Causes of Back Acne

Acne isn’t reserved just for teenagers; anyone of any age can have breakouts. Acne is the result of overactive oil glands that plug hair follicles, leading to acne-causing bacteria and excess dead skin cells. Facial acne is one thing, but back acne is another, and is a sign your acne is more severe (though it’s also common). A number of factors can cause acne breakouts on the back:

Foods

Acne can be triggered by food, such as:

  • Fast food and other processed foods
  • Dairy products
  • Spicy food
  • Sugar and other sweeteners
  • Foods made with white flour
  • Sweetened drinks

Change your diet to improve your skin condition. You may want to keep a journal to monitor your diet and breakouts. Look into the elimination diet to help you identify food triggers.

Sweat and Friction

Bacteria and sweat go hand-in-hand. So, anything constantly rubbing the back, including tight clothing, will cause bacne. Are you guilty of not showering or changing your clothes right after you’ve worked out? If so, change that habit. Cleansing the skin and washing your clothes following a sweaty workout can help prevent acne on the back.

Clothing

Speaking of clothing, be careful with your choice of workout clothing. Tight clothing is the enemy, and certain fabrics, such as synthetic favorites – lycra and polyester – can actually trap heat and sweat. Wear looser, lighter weight, and natural clothing. Cotton, for example, is your friend. Your skin needs to breathe.

Your Yoga Mat

Because bacteria loves sweat, your yoga mat can also be a culprit. Before using your mat, lay a towel on it, creating a barrier between you and the mat. Also, be sure to clean or disinfect your mat after each use.

Stress

Not surprisingly, stress is on this list. Research shows a relationship between stress and acne breakouts.

Best Back Acne Treatment

Now that you have some insight on preventing back acne breakouts, let’s discuss how to get rid of back acne. Besides prescriptions medications, there are over-the-counter ointments and creams that target acne. But our clients are big fans of laser therapy to treat back acne. There are various types of lasers to treat acne, and they can also target or treat acne scarring, along with pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, acne cysts, and acne nodules. We use Alma Lasers, which combines light and laser technology. The number of treatments needed and results vary from person to person.

PRP Facial Treatment

Why Celebrities Are Opting for Vampire Facials

Here at DermaClinic medspa in Coral Gables,  we’re familiar with the many amazing benefits of getting a facial and the role facials play in anti-aging or helping to boost one’s confidence. There are different types of facials to choose on the market today – targeting specific needs and goals.  But are you familiar with one of the hottest new facials – the “vampire facial”? It’s a fan favorite among celebrities, including Bar Refaeli and Keira Maguire. There are a number of reasons why celebrities are opting for Vampire Facials.

What Is a Vampire Facial?

A vampire facial is also known as the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facial, and uses a sample of your own blood. During the procedure, blood is drawn from you and is then injected into your face to trigger new collagen, break up existing scar tissue and make the skin look and feel brighter, smoother, tighter and more youthful. By stimulating collagen and elastin growth, PRP has been shown to kick the healing process into overdrive for optimal results.

The Benefits of a Vampire Facial

PRP encourages growth factors that are essential for new cell generation and functions, such as creating new collagen and strengthening elastins, and are extremely beneficial to the skin. Microneedling allows for deep penetration of the growth factors and improves the results of the treatment significantly. This procedure is appropriate for those patients looking to:

  • Reduce pore size
  • Soften acne scars
  • Improve fine lines/wrinkles
  • Improve skin texture/under eye bags

Impressive Results
