If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair.  At the office of Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa we offer Alma Laser Hair Removal, which offers a pain-free to become hair-free.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Predictability. Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to six sessions.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is more than just ”zapping” unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure.
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for 3 weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.
You should also avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

The night before or the morning of the procedure, you will need to shave the area you would like to be treated. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
You and the technician will need to wear appropriate eye protection during the procedure. It will also be necessary to protect the outer layers of your skin with a cold gel or special cooling device. This will help the laser light penetrate the skin.
Next, the technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings were used and to check for bad reactions.
You may schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later. You’ll get treatments until hair stops growing.
Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. Virtually pain-free, safely and visibly reduces unwanted hair over a series of treaments.  We offer laser hair removal for the following areas:

Anti-aging creams and lotions can be used at home, but usually provide only a slight benefit and must be used indefinitely to maintain even modest results.

Laser360iQ is the ideal procedure to eliminate the discoloration, textural irregularities and other signs of aging that make your skin look older.

Laser360iQ Is Not Your Typical Skin Laser

Laser360 is a revolutionary skin treatment which is a perfect match for anyone who refuses the idea those fine lines, wrinkles, skin discoloration, or other imperfections of the face, neck and chest are just a part of getting old. Laser360 can give you glowing youthful skin again. Many lasers designed for skin treatments concentrate on only one aspect of aging skin.
Laser360 is also a great tool for people who do not want to go “under the knife.” In just 60 days the technologies of Laser360 can take your whole countenance from tired and sagging to young and fresh. At the office of Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa, we offer Laser 360 to our patients.
Laser 360 deals with the issues of aging that our patients are left with such as:

  • Skin discoloration – sun exposure can leave reddish or brown spots on the face, hands, arms, legs and even on our chest and back.
  • Rough texture – The older we get, we tend to lose a lot of our skin’s youthful smooth texture. Our skin can be appear dried out or hardened in places that can’t be covered up.
  • Increased laxity – Once collagen production slows down, our skin loses volume and starts to sag. People can develop bags under their eyes and even a slight set of jowls, which can make a person appear worn out.
  • Fine Lines or Wrinkles – Fine lines and wrinkles that accompany aging can become quite alarming. Some might notice that their wrinkles seem to deepen and lengthen almost overnight.

The signs of aging are complex and not every skin laser is right for all conditions. The best laser skin treatment is one that takes into account all of the conditions listed above. Furthermore, each laser skin treatment should be tailored according to the patient’s goals and performed by professionals trained on the device. The answer is Laser360iQ and its 4 breakthrough technologies:

  1. NIR – Deep dermal heating helps regain a healthy, youthful appearance
  2. AFT – Pulses of light even out skin color and reduce the appearance of damaged or broken blood vessels. It also helps to erase other color irregularities in your skin.
  3. Pixel Er:YAG – Precision laser technology creates thousands of microscopic perforations and stimulates new collagen to improve your skin’s texture and tone and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

It’s important to ask questions about any skin treatment and cosmetic laser procedures are no exception. Consider these questions:
1.)  Do you look in the mirror and look older than you feel?
2.)  Are you spending too much money on topical creams that don’t seem to help?
3.)  Does your skin appear saggy in places where it used to be firm?
4.)  Are you noticing more fine lines and wrinkles than you used to?
5.)  Do you see more signs of aging on your forehead, cheeks, around your eyes, upper lip or neck?
6.)  Do you notice sun damage, age spots or other unsightly discoloration?
7.)  Do you want to revitalize your appearance without having surgery?
If you have answered yes to more than one of the above questions, our Laser360 can help you regain your youghful glow. It may seem like any skin treatment or any laser procedure is the right course of action. This is not the case.

Skin is the body’s largest organ and one of the most important. To achieve optimal skin health you must understand the various skin types and conditions as well as factors that can potentially cause damage. At the office of Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa, we emphasize the importance of taking care of your skin. We offer SkinCeuticals products and treatments to help you properly treat your skin, and our staff can educate you on the products that are right for your own skin type.

Breakthrough Scientific Discovery: SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic is proven to protect against Infrared Radiation A

Sun Damage and Sun Protection
Accumulated exposure from the sun without proper protection has negative consequences. The three main types of rays that damage our skin are UVA, UVB, and infrared rays, all of which have the ability to penetrate skin and cause damage to cells and DNA. On the surface, this damage manifests as fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and discoloration, but the most dangerous consequence beneath the surface is the risk of skin cancer.
To adequately shield skin from the sun, sunscreen needs to be a part of every daily routine. Options include physical UV-reflecting ingredients, chemical UV-absorbing ingredients, or a combination of both, but the most important thing to look for on a label is the term “broad spectrum”. This indicates full coverage from the entire spectrum of UVA and UVB radiation, whereas SPF only measures the length of time one is protected from the UVB rays responsible for sunburn.
Research has shown that sunscreen alone does not provide adequate protection from environmental damage. The average consumer does not apply enough sunscreen, therefore only obtaining up to half the protection stated on the bottle. Second, sunscreens only block 55%* of the free radicals generated by UV exposure. Finally, UV filters do not provide protection from damaging infrared radiation. For broad range protection against all sources of environmental skin insults, it’s imperative to use a topical antioxidant in conjunction with a daily sunscreen. Our SkinCeuticals products offer eight antioxidant products that have been clinically proven to provide optimal protection from the damage caused by UV rays and other environmental factors.

Environmental Aggressors

Natural protective antioxidants helps the skin repair itself, but when it is hit with environmental aggressors, this supply is quickly depleted. Without antioxidant protection, the skin can be damaged in both its appearance and long-term health.
The main environmental factors that contribute to skin damage are sunlight, infrared radiation, air pollution, alcohol, and smoking. These aggressors generate free radicals, which cause damage in the skin that compromises vital cellular components as well as the cells’ DNA. When cells can’t defend themselves, they then lose their ability to replicate correctly- and the visible signs include fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, discoloration, and potentially skin cancer.

The Importance Of a Proper Regimen

In order to maintain and improve the health and appearance of skin, a proper skincare regimen is essential. Although the specific products depend on skin type and skin conditions, every effective regimen must include three fundamental elements—Prevention, Protection, and Correction.
To “Prevent” accelerated skin aging and skin cancer, it’s imperative to use a daily topical antioxidant. This targeted range of products prevents skin damage by neutralizing the free radicals generated by UV rays, infrared radiation, and other environmental factors like pollution, alcohol consumption, and cigarette smoke. Photodamage created by the sun is the number-one cause of accelerated skin aging and skin cancer. In order to prevent this damage, it’s essential to “Protect” skin with sunscreen. To minimize lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and other visible effects of past damage, we offer products designed to “Correct”. These potent skincare products are formulated with powerful ingredients and advanced technologies to restore a healthier, younger-looking complexion.
These three components ensure an effective skincare regimen for maintaining and improving the health and appearance of skin.  To properly choose a skincare regimen and proper treatments we now offer Digital Facial Scanning at Dr. Bishara’s office.  The Reveal Computer Skin Analysis System is computer imaging software that takes high resolution photos and demonstrates areas of aging and sun damaged skin. After your digital facial scanning we can discuss proper SkinCeutical products and laser facial rejuvenation procedures that would correct your skin conditions.At the office of Dr. Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa- we can create an effective skincare regimen that is tailored to every unique skin type and condition. Our staff can prescribe additional in-office treatments that make it possible to achieve one’s skincare goals.
