IPL and Pelleve Laser Treatments in Scottsdale

IPL, or Intense-Pulsed Light, is a laser procedure that works by delivering a bright blast of light at high energy levels through a hand-held device. The IPL treatment can be uncomfortable for some, but is great for patients with a number of different goals: fading brown spots, reducing broken capillaries, and minimizing overall redness.  The number of treatments required can vary depending on the results you would like to achieve.

Another treatment called Pelleve is a safe and effective option for those looking to reduce lines and wrinkles without needles or surgery. The Pelleve system uses radiofrequency technology to warm the skin deep beneath the surface, thereby triggering the body to produce new collagen.

With no downtime, patients say the treatment to feels much like a hot stone massage.  Unlike most laser treatments, Pelleve is gentle and safe for all skin types.  A series of treatments will give optimal results.

What is Microblading?

Microblading, a semi-permanent way of creating hair like strokes just under the skin’s surface, is now available for clients seeking to improve the shape and fullness of their eyebrows. 

Microblading is a process by which pigment is implanted into the skin with series of small micro needles.  The microneedles are dipped into a selected color pigment and then used to make small microstrokes that resemble hair, into the skin.

While microblading is relatively new in North America, it has been popular in Europe and Asia for roughly 25 years.

Not only do microblading results look amazingly natural, but they also reduce the amount of daily upkeep involved with filling in brows with pencils and powders.

Results typically last about 1-3 years before a touchup is required to keep the color looking vibrant and the hair strokes looking crisp.

Symptoms of Fungal Acne and Possible Causes

Fungal Acne has a very definitive pattern on the face. It is typically located on several particular areas of the face. The forehead, along the hairline and the exterior jawline. Moderate to severe fungal infections have a tendency to make its way down to the neck, especially the sides of neck.

It can be seen very clearly at the topmost layer of the skin. They are whiteish in color. If it is a 'live' infection, it is nearly impossible to extract the entire comedone if at all. If it's no longer an existing infection, they usually shrink in size, rise to the surface of the skin and when expressed, they look like semi-solid, oval shaped, yellowish in color, pellets. 

When treated properly, Fungal infections usually clear up within 7-10 days. 

Moisture is what fungus breeds on. Wash your face and neck immediately after working out. You should get out of those sweaty gym clothes as well. Fungal infections happen on the body too. Fungal breakouts on the body often presents itself on the mid chest as well as mid back and shoulders.
