Patients should wait for skin to recover before resuming regular tanning after getting a chemical peel. The time needed for healing may vary according to the extent of the chemical peel, but after the recovery period, you will be able to enjoy the sunny weather to its fullest extent! How Long Should I Wait Before I Start to Tan Again? Doctors will generally recommend waiting at least six weeks before revisiting your tanning spot outdoors or under the tanning bed lights.

Excessive weight gain will affect area of the skin treated with laser stretch mark removal. In addition, the extent of the fluctuation in weight is also an important factor, but for many of our clients who lead healthy, balanced lifestyles, minor changes in lifestyle should not affect the appearance of the skin after laser stretch mark treatment. What are Stretch Marks? Stretch marks develop when weight gain triggers hormonal changes in the skin. When you put on weight, your body produces elevated doses of glucocorticoids, which tell your skin to make less elastin fibres and collagen. These are two key components to healthy, young looking skin. When your body grows, the skin tears in certain areas, and after it heals stretch marks will have developed. Initially they’re likely to be red in colour, but will gradually fade into white or…

While it’s true that moles can be an indicator of cancerous growth, not all moles are bad for you. In fact, a majority of moles are benign, and regular moles will not tend to turn cancerous. Even with this in mind, it’s important to know how to spot obvious signs that your body has changed in case of skin cancer. Early detection can be crucial in treating melanoma, so talk to your doctor about any concerns or precautionary measures to be taken. Regular screening means that early detection is possible, in addition to providing peace of mind when you’re satisfied that your moles appear as they normally do. Regular screening can help you with being more familiar about your own body. Screening will take longer for individuals with more moles than less, but you will be able to speed up…

Different types of lasers are currently used in medical and cosmetic procedures, so it’s understandable that patients want to know the benefits of each option. All lasers used for skin treatments works by removing outer layers of skin to encourage new, improved skin cells to grow underneath. CO2 lasers are outstanding in providing results for deep treatments, which is why it’s such a popular piece of equipment across the offices of aestheticians and doctors in both Canada and the US. Reducing Scaring Worries with CO2 Lasers Lasers work by using light beams at high energy directed at a very specific spot. The high energy can produce a large amount of heat that’s hot enough to damage tissue if it’s not properly controlled. CO2 lasers limit the heat produced without sacrificing power, so it can penetrate deeply into your skin, making…

Most women will experience some form of cellulite, whether it be mild or more severe. Cellulite looks like dimpled skin, and is typically found in the thigh and buttocks area. Although it’s often associated with being overweight, even very lean and slim people are affected by cellulite, since it’s often genetic. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Cellulite is caused by fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling.” Cellulite has no medical repercussions, so treatment is completely optional and are considered aesthetic. That said, the appearance of smooth skin makes a lot of men and women much more confident, which is why cellulite treatment is so popular! What…

There are various over-the-counter creams and lotions that claim to naturally reduce stretch marks with the assistance of topically applied chemicals. But the truth is, there is very little research supporting or debunking these claims, regardless of their method of targeting stretch marks.   Fortunately, there are treatments that actually work on the otherwise permanent marks on your skin. What Are Stretch Marks? The skin is composed of three layers, and although it’s not apparent, it’s constantly growing like your hair and nails do. The epidermis is the side that’s exposed, the dermis lies in between, and the subcutaneous layer is simply fat. When the body expands quickly, the skin can’t stretch quickly enough and the layers tear. Fresh stretch marks are red or purple, while old ones are white or silver coloured. Laser Stretch Mark Removal is the Best…
