Many people, men and women included equally, have complaints about their body image and how others perceive them. Whether it's extra hair on the back or face, a little extra padding in the love handles or thighs that show too much cellulite, almost any person you ask can name a part of their body where they have a complaint.
Often times, you'll hear friends and family complain about those few extra inches they want to lose, how they want to get rid of age spots or how they want to quit shaving forever. Even worse, a significant other or spouse may lodge a complaint and suggest seeking treatments a laser center.
However, by sending those complaints away through laser aesthetic treatments at American Laser Centers, individuals can improve body image without invasive surgery and minimal downtime, thereby decreasing complaints from themselves and significant others. And when the complaints cease, people can improve their outlook on life and concentrate on issues that are important to them.
The top complaints that individuals often have about body image are:
-Complaints about hair that isn't supposed to be there. The only way to permanently reduce the amount of unwanted hair is to damage the hair follicle to a point where is unable to produce hairs. The hairs that are destroyed with each treatment are destroyed permanently. While patient protocol is determined on a case-by-case basis, on average most laser hair removal centers recommend a minimum of six treatments, spread about two months apart per treatment.
-Complaints about cellulite and futile attempts to reduce it. VelaShape is the first (and only) process approved by the FDA to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and reduce thigh circumference. VelaShape is a clinically proven procedure that many people are choosing instead of surgical techniques.
The noninvasive VelaShape device uses something called el's technology, invented by laser developer Syneron. It employs bi-polar RF waves and infrared energy to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of cellulite and cut down on localized fat deposits by literally shrinking your fat cells.
-Complaints about a little extra weight around the waist or thighs. Noninvasive treatments like VelaShape can literally take inches off the waist, buttocks, thighs, upper arms and more in as little as four treatments and with no surgery or downtime. The treatment combines heat, massage and suction to literally shrink the size of your fat cells, providing a decreased circumference of the treatment area.
-Complaints about dark spots on the face or hands. Skin rejuvenation treatments such as the FotoFacial found at laser aesthetic centers, helps your skin turn back the clock by gently and safely removing older skin layers and promoting the growth of new skin that has been stimulated to look like it did when you were younger. Skin rejuvenation treatments also target some of the more obvious and unsightly signs of aging skin, such as pigmented lesions using laser and radio frequency energies to target those signs of older skin and reduce or eliminate their appearance.
-Complaints about wrinkles and sagging skin. Laser technology has been developed to refirm skin safely and effectively, without pain, without cutting into the skin and without the need to take time off to recover.
These lasers, like those used by American Laser Centers, combine infrared heat with radiofrequency waves to reshape the collagen in your skin. It's the collagen that holds the shape of your skin contours, and the skillful application of laser energy can stimulate healthy collagen remodeling inside your skin. With this tool, a clinician can tighten sagging skin and fill in wrinkles with your own natural substances around your eyes, mouth and cheeks; along your jaw; and at the brow line.
No matter which type of treatments you may be seeking, it's also a good idea to plan to spend some time researching the exact procedure that you'd like to have, what side effects if any exist, and find out about the aesthetic treatment center by asking friends and family and interviewing the technician that will be performing the treatment.
Whatever complaints you may have with your body image, you can do some research and find that there are safe, nonsurgical ways to create small to drastic improvements without breaking the bank or using up all of your vacation days.
