Look and Feel Great with Body Contouring

CoolSculpting, Freeze The Fat Away

Sometimes, diet and exercising just isn’t enough. We can spend all the hours in the day watching what we eat and running laps, but we just can’t see or feel results. Fortunately, there is a solution: Body Contouring. This non-invasive procedure targets unwanted fat. With body contouring, you can get rid of that infuriating love handle or muffin top.

Imagine your body with a smaller waist, thinner hips, and slimmer thighs. Now, imagine achieving this without invasive, painful, and expensive surgery. At the Laser Center of Marin, this can become reality with CoolSculpting body contouring.

CoolSculpting:

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, clinically proven procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas using a patented cooling technology. It is a safe procedure cleared by the FDA that gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. This reduces bulges in treated areas of the body without harming surrounding tissue.

On average, each CoolSculpting Procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients.

Not only will you look great with body contouring, but you will feel better, too. Excessive fat weighs down our health and self-esteem. Target unwanted fat with body contouring, and you will look and feel more healthy, happy, and beautiful. Patients at the Laser Center of Marin have seen terrific results from CoolSculpting!

Wondering if you are a suitable candidate for body contouring? Call the Laser Center of Marin at 415-945-9314 to schedule a complimentary consultation. To make your body image dream become a reality, we have special offers and financing options available to our patients.

The Benefits of Injectables (i.e. Botox, Dysport, and Fillers) at The Laser Center Of Marin

The Benefits of Botox, Dysport & Fillers

It is a never-ending battle to look and feel younger. We all deal with those embarrassing wrinkles. Frown lines and crow’s feet are our biggest enemy, but injectables are designed to make you look and feel younger. The Laser Center of Marin is proud to offer Botox, Dysport, and Dermal Wrinkle Fillers to our clients.

Before the age of injectables, if you wanted to look younger, you had to undergo surgery. It was expensive and time-consuming, but thanks to advanced technology, we now have another option:  Injectables that include Botox, Dysport, and Fillers.

Botox is a purified protein that is injected directly into your wrinkles. It works to smooth and erase your frown lines and crow’s feet. Your skin will look smooth, healthy, and most of all, youthful.

Dysport is another injectable that reduces and smooths frown lines. Designed to reduce dynamic wrinkles, Dysport soothes your skin by relaxing your muscles. It is a simple, noninvasive, and time-effective procedure. Your skin will regain its glow.

We all want to feel confident about our skin. Fillers are another way to accomplish this.

During a short, noninvasive procedure, fillers are injected into your skin to fill in wrinkles and plump up tissues. This procedure creates a lovely, youthful appearance.

The Laser Center of Marin wants all our patients to love their skin. Accomplish this with injectables. We think the benefits of injectables are numerous. Here are a few:

  • Injectables are a low-risk procedure
  • Many of our patients receive injectables over their lunch break. It only takes 15 minutes to completely makeover your skin.
  • You will see results immediately.
  • Injectables are painless.
  • Injectables are affordable.

Can Ultherapy Tackle Your Turkey Wattle?

How many of us are greeted by a double chin or sagging neck skin every time we see ourselves in the mirror? For some of us, that turkey wattle can make us feel like we look older than we feel.

Whether or not your drooping neck or double chin is due to genetics or weight gain, Ultherapy skin tightening may be a great, non-invasive solution for you. The Laser Center of Marin is excited to offer Ultherapy to qualified patients because it is ideal for patients who are not quite ready for surgery.

What is Ultherapy? First, it is an “uplift”, not a “facelift”. It uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin. Ultherapy uses the body’s natural healing processes to lift and tighten loose skin on the eyebrow, neck, and under the chin. Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas. At The Laser Center of Marin, we are pleased to offer this successful treatment that shows natural, noticeable results.

Ultherapy is fast, simple, and hardly has any downtime. The procedure takes only 1-2 hours to complete, but the full results unfold over the course of 2-3 months. You may have some tenderness or redness, but typical results show that it’s is mild and quickly goes away. There’s no lengthy recovery process required after Ultherapy, so you can go back to your regular activities right away.

The best way to determine if you qualify for an Ultherapy treatment is to contact The Laser Center of Marin for a complimentary consultation. If you qualify, we are offering special offers and financing options that can make your dreams about having a slimmer jawline become a reality. Contact The Laser Center of Marin today at 415-945-9314.

Ultherapy-in-MarinThe Non-invasive Solution to Lift, Tighten and Tone Skin on the Face and Neck

It’s been featured on national television shows such as Rachael Ray, The View and The Doctors. It’s been touted by big-name beauty editors from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Shape and more…

It’s Ultherapy, a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose skin — on the brow, on the neck and under the chin — without any downtime. And it’s offered here in Marin at The Laser Center of Marin.

Ultherapy Uses Ultrasound?

That’s right! Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment, to ensure that the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most effective.

Leveraging this tried-and-true technology, we can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin – the one typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. That means after a 90-minute non-invasive treatment, you’ll be able to return to your everyday life without interruptions…and, without hiding behind those “post-treatment” glasses or scarves.

Ultherapy Creates Collagen and Elastin Naturally

Ultherapy is so unique because it refreshes your collagen by jumpstarting a repair process. It relies on the body’s own regenerative process to stimulate the natural creation of new collagen and elastin – yes, new collagen and elastin. This results in an actual lift of skin overtime – and just better-fitting skin.

Many people notice an immediate effect following the treatment, but the ultimate lifting and toning takes place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen. And, as this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can even appear up to 6 months following a procedure!

Ultherapy – an Uplift not a Facelift

Ultherapy is a non-surgical option for people with mild to moderate skin laxity – those who want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity, but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. It’s also a great option for those who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Ultherapy may cause some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Of course, we offer a number of options to help make your Ultherapy treatment as comfortable as possible. Our patients who’ve had Ultherapy typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!

Ask us if Ultherapy is right for you!

If you’re looking for a lift to counter the effects that gravity takes over time, it may be just the treatment you’ve been waiting for.

Reducing Age Spots and Sun Damage

FraxelWe all love to spend time in the sun even though we know it can damage our skin. Sun damage can cause age spots, wrinkles, discoloration, and more. Even so, we can hardly expect to stay inside all the time. Outdoor activities are one of the many things that make Marin County wonderful, and it would be a shame to miss time spent outside because we’re afraid of getting some sun.

Thankfully, there are ways to prevent or reduce the skin damage that comes with sun exposure. One of the first and most important skin protection tips to remember is, of course, to wear your sunscreen! Sunburns can harm multiple layers of your skin and cause discoloration and peeling, but it’s really the long-term sun exposure you have to watch out for. As popular as tanning and outdoor activities are, it’s very important to protect yourself from excessive sunshine with sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, or umbrellas. Prolonged exposure over time results in early aging of the skin, including wrinkles and age spots. Since it’s the sun’s radiation that causes these issues, this also applies to tanning beds, so keep that in mind before you tan!

However, once the damage is already done, there are ways to reduce the appearance of lines and age spots. At the Laser Center of Marin, we offer a number of treatments that will tighten, even, and tone skin to restore your youthful glow. The Fraxel laser treatment, in particular, works by encouraging the skin’s natural healing process in order to smooth wrinkles and minimize dark age spots. The treatment involves minimal downtime for patients, so it’s ideal for people looking to restore their skin and reverse sun damage without a significant impact to their lifestyle. In addition, the Fraxel DUAL system is indicated for actinic keratosis (AKs), melasma, treatment of periorbital wrinkles, acne scars and surgical scars.

It’s understandable to want to look a little sun-kissed, but if the sun starts to take its toll, come see the specialists at the Laser Center of Marin.

Are Liposonix Treatments Safe?

Liposuction TreatmentsEver since liposuction treatments reached the mainstream, people have been wondering about the safety of such procedures. Thankfully, Liposonix is an alternative that eliminates much of the potential risk of surgical liposuction. While many people have heard horror stories or seen those infamous videos that make them cringe away from the very mention of liposuction, they also have yet to hear about the nonsurgical alternatives.

Liposuction itself has always had a bit of a reputation thanks to significant fear mongering. All surgery entails risks, and it’s always wise to be informed of those risks before deciding on a procedure, but liposuction performed by a licensed professional is actually quite safe and complications are rare. Nonetheless, many people just aren’t up for an invasive procedure that requires significant time for healing and recuperation.

This is where procedures like Liposonix come in. Unlike the process of using incisions and suction to remove fat cells, Liposonix utilizes high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to melt and destroy fatty tissue without surgery. A transducer uses the familiar ultrasound technology to focus the energy and target specific subcutaneous tissue areas while leaving others completely unharmed. The heat of the system destroys fatty cells under the skin, where they’re absorbed by the body’s natural healing process and filtered through the liver like any other cells. Once this process occurs, the cells are gone and will leave the body naturally.

While liposuction can remove significant quantities of fat, Liposonix is a better option for people who just have an inch or so to lose. It’s more of a contouring procedure than weight loss modality. The benefits of Liposonix include:

  • Non-invasive, single treatment
  • Customized treatment areas
  • Takes only about one hour – on average
  • Results typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks
  • Little to no downtime

For body contouring, Liposonix is an excellent and very safe option for losing that last inch off of your waistline. If you’d like more information about the procedure and other services for reducing fat and toning skin, please contact the Laser Center of Marin today!
