Get Rid of Acne Scars for Good

When it comes to skincare, everything’s about getting rid of acne. Whether that means blowing through salicylic acid face washes or trying topical creams to remove the red, ugly bumps from your skin, when you have acne, it’s always the first thing on your mind. But what about after you’ve cleared your acne? You’re dismayed to find your skin isn’t as perfect as your lofty skin-care products claimed and that the acne has disfigured or discolored your face. Acne scars are easy to get and tricky to get rid of, but Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa has solutions. 

The bad news: no matter how good your face wash was at clearing your acne, it won’t make a dent on your scars and most washes won’t. The good news is there’s a few incredible treatments we offer, specially created to target and get rid of acne scars, so you can have clear, smooth skin. In this article, we’ll go through the top treatments so you can learn how to remove your acne scars

SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen Microneedling treatment

SkinPen was awarded the “Top Rated Treatment for Acne Scars” in 2019 and for an incredibly good reason. The microneedling treatment is one of the most popular within the skincare community and continues to show results for removing acne scars to this day. The SkinPen is exactly as it sounds—a microneedling pen. How it works: Each device contains 12 teeny tiny needles to create a controlled and evenly spaced microneedling environment. Our registered nurses will use the pen to treat only the places you need it. Microneedling works by creating a puncture and drawing blood from your skin. Your skin immediately notices something wrong and hurries to heal the injured area, growing new collagen and elastin.

With the SkinPen treatment, your skin will be targeted over multiple treatments to persuade your skin to continuously produce more and more collagen which makes it an incredible treatment for acne scars. Acne scars are essentially dead or damaged skin, and because there’s no open wound, your skin isn’t in any rush to heal it. The SkinPen Microneedling treatment tricks it into healing the area faster than it would’ve naturally. The treatment also results in fewer fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin texture, reduces pore size, and leaves you with plump and healthy skin. 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facials

Vampire facial at Colair

Platelet Rich Plasma facials are big right now, and you might’ve heard of them being referred to as the “vampire facial”. The process itself is a bit weird. One of our registered nurses (some of which work in the NICU of the hospital)  will draw your blood and put it in a centrifuge, a machine that rotates rapidly to separate and enrich the platelets from your blood. Your platelets are then injected directly into your skin through microneedling, which creates the bloody “vampire” look you’ve most likely seen all over the internet. As weird as it sounds, there’s great science behind this method of acne treatment. Platelets are well known for their healing factors as they secrete “growth factors” which stimulate cellular growth and is a common practice within medical fields for joint healing as well. Alongside being an acne marks treatment, PRP facials will also increase your collagen, reduce any fine lines and wrinkles, and you’ll notice a tightening and glow to your skin almost immediately. 

Scarlet Radiofrequency (SRF)

Scarlet SRF treatment for acne

Scarlet Radiofrequency is an incredibly unique dermal treatment for the simple fact that it combines two well-known skin-therapy processes into a singular treatment: radiofrequency and microneedling. The process is relatively simple. With the use of microneedles, short pulses of radiofrequency energy are distributed into the skin. 

The skin responds immediately with the production of collagen and elastin fibers to both repair and tighten the skin, solving a plethora of skin issues, including acne scars. Though microneedling alone can cause a jumpstart in the production of collagen, the radiofrequency increases the production for a faster recovery and cell turnover rate. It’s a double whammy. That’s not even the best part. The best part about getting SRF over other facial treatments is that there’s very little downtime after the treatment, which means you won’t be stuck inside your house as your skin peels relentlessly and you won’t experience any pain or bleeding. The SRF treatment is also one of the only treatments that are FDA approved. 

Chemical peels 

Chemical peels, also known as the relentless peeling, are just as popular a treatment as microneedling if not even more so. Chemical peels use, as the name suggests, chemicals or acids for application on the face. The applied solution then loosens all the dead skin on the uppermost layer of the face to reveal newer and fresher skin beneath it.  As scary as it sounds, don’t worry. These acids are safe to use on the face and won’t cause any harm at all. Our skin naturally sloughs off all our dead skin, even if we don’t realize it. That dead skin ends up on our pillows and our beds at night but in such small amounts we never really notice them unless we look closely. Chemical peels speed up the process and only remove skin that’s already dead and our skin hasn’t shed yet. 

Typically, after a chemical peel, clients are advised to avoid the sun at all costs and be generous with the SPF, as new and fresh skin is more vulnerable to sun damage for up to six weeks post-peel.

If the idea of peeling is still detestable to you but you’re still interested in acne scar removal, chemical exfoliation is a great at-home treatment. Some peeling solutions you can buy from skincare brands have simple procedures that include applying for a certain amount of time, like a face mask, and then rinsing off. There won’t be any visible peeling, despite the name, but these products still remove dead skin with the acidic solution. The results won’t be as dramatic or as quick as any of the above treatments, but it’s a cheap and relatively simple alternative with zero downtime and a promising future for your skin. 

Fibroblast Plasma Pen

Skin tightening treatments also help lessen the appearance of blemish scarring and redness.

Similar microneedling and SRF, Fibroblast also stimulates healthy collagen in your skin. It goes even further in repairing the connective tissue needed to generate new collagen. The electrical pulses safely rejuvenate the skin, revealing a smoother, more even skin tone.

If you want long-lasting results, you’ll be happy to learn that this treatment lasts up to three years.

What is Preventative Botox?

The fountain of youth may not exist, but science has gotten pretty darn close. There are plenty of products and treatments available that can help reverse or even stop the signs of aging. One of the most popular treatments is Botox.

Botox uses botulinum toxin injected into the skin to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The toxin—that’s not toxic or harmful to the body—paralyzes the muscles, so they are more relaxed, creating less wrinkling and creasing in the skin.

There are two main types of Botox that we can help you with at Colair Beauty Lounge and Med Spa in Gilbert, AZ: preventative Botox and corrective Botox. Both do well in an effort to increase anti-aging and both contain their own properties depending on the solution you want.

What Is Preventative Botox?

One of the major preventative Botox benefits is that it prevents wrinkles before they set deep into the skin. The key is to get the treatment early before the face has many visible wrinkles or fine lines.

Preventative Botox uses the botulinum toxin to relax the muscles in the face. These paralyzed muscles prevent the skin from creasing and forming fine lines or wrinkles.

Before having the procedure, you’ll have a consultation with one of our registered nurses at Colair, where you’ll discuss possible side effects and aftercare instructions. During the Botox process, the specialist will identify the facial muscles to apply the Botox. The preventative Botox process takes only ten to thirty minutes.

How often do you need to do it? Preventative Botox isn’t something you do only once. It often takes a few sessions to yield initial results, and you’ll need to maintain the effects after the first visit.

When can you see results? It can take up to two weeks to see any initial changes. On average, it takes ten to twelve weeks for patients to see their desired results. And to maintain the results, you should get treatments about three to four times a year.

How much does it cost? On average, preventative Botox costs between $250 and $500 per session. The price depends on how many areas need to be treated as well as the dose required per injection.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This?

Firstly, the FDA has approved Botox for patients older than eighteen. For those looking to use Botox to prevent aging, many people get their first treatment in their mid-twenties.

Technically, you can receive Botox treatments in your early twenties, but at that time, it’s unlikely that wrinkles have formed or set into the skin. Preventative Botox decreases the chance of having wrinkles in the future.

Who should get preventative botox? Anyone who wants who’s looking to maintain their youth and fight wrinkles before they start.

Why You Should Consider Preventative Botox 

Taking the preventative approach is easy the solution to stop early lines from becoming wrinkles. Starting Botox early, before wrinkles have the chance to set in, reduces the chance of having wrinkles in the future. You’re also less likely to have deep-set wrinkles.

You should consider getting preventative Botox fillers in your twenties because not only can it prevent the development of deep static facial lines, but it may also prevent wrinkles altogether. You also may save on high Botox costs down the line because there won’t be as many wrinkles to fight. 

What Is Corrective Botox?

Corrective Botox has a similar goal as preventative Botox: to fight against the signs of aging, wrinkles, and deep lines. But corrective Botox is used when those signs have aging have already set into the skin.

The main goal of corrective Botox is to soften or make the lines disappear. The procedure makes the skin taut, which helps smooth it out. This is especially helpful when those deeper creases begin to set in.

Botox and fillers can also help with volume loss and thin skin as you age. The older we get, the thinner our skin becomes, not only making wrinkles more prominent but also causing us to lose the youthful plumpness our skin once had. Sagging skin may also become a concern.

Botox and fillers can combat these issues. Botox fights the fine lines and wrinkles, while corrective fillers can help add plumpness back to areas like our cheeks, marionette lines or lips.

The process between both versions of Botox is similar, where you’ll be in a professional medical room while one of our registered nurses injects the treatment. The whole process only takes ten to thirty minutes.

As for maintenance, you should receive a series of treatments about every twelve to sixteen weeks to maintain your results. The cost typically ranges between $250 and $600 at Colair depending on the location you need and the amount of Botox needed to correct the wrinkles.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This?

Those looking for corrective Botox treatments are better for people who already have deep-set wrinkles or fine lines on their skin. Most people begin seeking corrective Botox treatments in their mid to late thirties and is an increasingly popular treatment for those in their forties, fifties, and sixties. While there isn’t an upper age limit, health risks associated with advanced ages may make Botox not the best option.

When Corrective Is a More Appropriate Option

Corrective Botox is the more appropriate option if your skin is already showing signs of aging. Consider this if you have:

  • Fine lines 
  • Wrinkles 
  • Sagging skin
  • Loss of volume on your face and neck

This version can also be more appropriate if you’ve had unhealthy habits surrounding your skin, such as smoking, frequent use of tanning beds, and overexposure to the sun without using protective measures. All of these can lead to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines that Botox can then treat.

Reverse the Signs of Aging With Botox

Who says growing old gracefully can’t come with a little Botox? If you’re looking to reverse or prevent the signs of aging, you can do that with Botox. Both corrective and preventative Botox are great ways to help your skin look younger.

Pamper yourself and allow your inner beauty to shine through. At Colair Beauty Lounge and Med Spa, you can reverse and prevent signs of aging through Botox injections customized to your needs. Contact us to schedule a free consultation at our med spa in Gilbert to start your beauty journey.

So if you’re a 20-something and thinking that Botox isn’t something you need to consider for decades, think again. It’s basic beauty-instincts to follow certain anti-aging and preventive measures like wearing sunscreen, applying night cream and drinking water, but imagine altogether halting the development of wrinkles before they even start?

So, what is Botox? Contrary to what many believe—Botox isn’t shipped from heaven— rather, it is Botulinum toxin type A, a wonder drug made to smooth out lines by preventing muscles from contracting. Believe it or not Botox has been around for 100 years. Initially approved for treating eyelid spasms, Botox then went on to be used for bladder spasms and excessive sweating, then in 2002, it was approved by the FDA for treatment of wrinkles on the upper face. Located in Agritopia, Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is your one-stop skincare destination and our experts are ready to answer your questions about Botox and other med spa services.  If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of Botox or have questions, please do not hesitate to visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.

What are Exosomes in Skincare?

We like to think of exosomes as messengers for your skin cells. These tiny biomolecules are responsible for cell to cell communication and exchanging RNA and other vital proteins between cells. In addition, exosomes contain essential components like peptides, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that help repair tissue and improve the quality of skin cells. 

Each exosome treatment by Benev delivers billions of stem cell-derived exosomes, helping with everything from anti-aging to hair restoration. Benev Exosome treatments are paraben-free, steroid-free, hypoallergenic, and safe for all skin types and skin colors. 

Exosome treatments absorb quickly into the skin delivering a concentrated dose of stem cell-derived exosomes, growth factors, peptides, minerals, and vitamins – each contributing to healthy, younger-looking skin and hair. 

Next-Generation Treatments at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa 

Non-invasive procedures are now the go-to regenerative approach. We include Benev Exosome treatments with Scarlet RF Treatment to amplify the results. Scarlet uses RF (radiofrequency) and microneedling to rebuild collagen in the skin, smooth fine lines, tighten skin, decrease pore size, improve the skin’s texture, and improve acne. We can stimulate more collagen and speed up the healing process by including exosome treatments. 

We can also utilize exosome treatments with SkinPen Microneedling. SkinPen Microneedling creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process to improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars on the face and body.

Finally, we can use exosomes as an add-on to PRP Hair Restoration therapy to help noticeably increase the density and thickness of stimulated hairs.

Combating Post-Covid Stress and Hair Loss with Nutrafol

Yes, you read that right. The pandemic might be the culprit of your thinning hair or excess shedding. Since Covid-19, there have been upticks in reports of stress-related hair loss. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa has the details of what you can do to combat pandemic-related hair loss. 

How Does Stress Cause Hair Loss?

Our bodies release cortisol (primary stress hormone) when we feel stressed. High cortisol levels signal the hair follicle into “resting” mode. Once your follicles go into this stagnant phase, they don’t grow new hair. Impacted hair strands will eventually fall out easier when you’re washing, brushing, or styling your hair. 

But stress and hair loss doesn’t have to be permanent with the help of potent and proven supplements like Nutrafol Hair Growth Nutraceuticals. 

How to Use Nutrafol for Hair Loss

Nutrafol creates leading, dermatologist-recommended hair growth supplements for men and women. Combining nature’s best ingredients like vitamin A, vitamin D, zinc, and biotin, Nutrafol’s hair growth formulas are helping people get their hair back on track. 

Below are our top picks from Nutrafol for happy, healthy hair. 

The Core Supplements:

Nutrafol has four core Nutraceutical supplements. Here’s a closer look at each one, who they’re best for, and how they can help your hair.

  • Men – Nutrafol supplements for men tackle hair-loss issues like hormones, stress, and poor nutrition. The Men’s Supplement is drug-free, safe ingredients.
  • Women – This formula targets the 6 root causes of hair loss, including stress, nutrition, and lifestyle. Nutrafol Women Supplements are made with physician-formulated medical-grade natural ingredients for thicker, fuller, and stronger hair.
  • Women’s Balance – Women’s Balance is a hair growth supplement created explicitly for women before, during, and after menopause to help hair thrive at all stages of life.
  • Postpartum – This daily supplement is OBGYN-developed, natural, and breastfeeding-friendly for women during the first year after giving birth. Ingredients like Marine Collagen, Nettle, and Apple naturally target stress, hormonal changes, and nutrient depletion.

Hairbiotic: 

Sometimes the good and bad bacteria in your gut can get out of balance. If your gut is out of sync, it is harder to absorb the essential nutrients in supplements. 

Hairbiotic is a probiotic made especially to improve hair quality by promoting a healthy gut. Hairbiotic is formulated with hair and gut-loving probiotics to help your body absorb more nutrients. 

Stress Adaptogen: 

Stress levels can wreak havoc on hair follicles. The longer we stay stressed, the longer our follicles will be compromised. Stress Adaptogen is made using potent plant adaptogens that help balance the body’s natural response to stress. 

Another thing to consider to keep your hairline fuller is a natural DHT blocker. DHT is a hormone, and when someone has too much, ​​it interferes with the hair’s growth cycle. Nutrafol’s DHT inhibitor is formulated with saw palmetto to help delay the enzyme that turns testosterone into DHT. 

Topical Serum: 

Finally, support your scalp with a topical serum to address thinning hair from the inside out. The Growth Activator is created with plant-based exosomes that nourish and moisturize the scalp without leaving your hair feeling greasy or oily.

Why You Need a Retinol in Your Routine

Skincare trends may come and go, but retinol is among the select few known to stick around. Why? Because it works. Retinoids, compounds emanated from vitamin A, come in various strengths and forms like gels, creams, or serums. 

If you’re around the age of 30, consider adding this gold-standard ingredient in skincare to your routine. Retinol is known to significantly improve the appearance of the skin. Learn more about the benefits of retinol and how to use it in your skincare routine from the beauty experts at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa

What Are The Benefits of Retinol?

Retinol comes in all shapes and sizes. You can purchase skincare formulated with retinol over the counter, or a cosmetic provider may prescribe retinol.

So why use retinol in your routine? Check out these incredible benefits. 

Reduce Signs of Aging

Retinol is one of the most used and studied anti-aging ingredients available. It works to prevent future wrinkles while smoothing out existing fine lines. In addition, retinol promotes cell turnover, exfoliates the skin at a cellular level, and builds collagen to help achieve glowing, softer, smoother, and younger-looking skin. 

Benefits of using daily retinol for anti-aging include preventing wrinkles, brightening dull skin, and stimulating collagen and elastin for a fresh, more youthful glow. 

Clear Acne

Retinol also treats acne. Did you know it was originally patented as an acne treatment in the late 1960s? Retinol clears up broken-out skin by unclogging pores and preventing further outbreaks from occurring. It also works to regulate oily skin to reduce shine. 

If you’re suffering from acne, talk to a skincare expert at Colair about retinol products particularly well-suited to those with acne to slow new spots and desensitize the skin to inflammation. 

Even Out Skin Tone

Retinol is another standard treatment for skin tone issues like hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and age spots. Retinol stimulates skin cell turnover, which acts as an exfoliator on the skin. 

By getting rid of dull, dry, or discolored skin, new even-toned skin can have the chance to shine through. 

Retinol can effectively fade dark age spots, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and even out your complexion with continued use. 

When to Use Retinol in Your Routine

Retinol treats acne, promotes skin renewal, brightens the skin, and boosts collagen production. So if you’re ready to include this super ingredient in your daily routine, here’s what you need to know. 

Get the maximum benefits of retinol by using it as part of your nightly routine. Retinol should be the first layer on your skin after cleansing and before applying nightly moisturizer, oils, or creams. Avoid using products with exfoliating or acne-fighting ingredients while using retinol. Always use a good anti-aging sunscreen (SPF 30+) every day because the skin becomes sensitive to sun exposure with retinol use.

Tip: Retinol can sometimes irritate sensitive skin, so if you’re prone to dryness or irritation, start by applying it once or twice a week at night. 

Want to learn more about retinol or perhaps some other med spa services that can help you with the above skincare concerns? Visit Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona, and speak with one of our highly-skilled staff to answer all of your questions. Visit or call us at 480-912-5325.

PRP for Mature Skin

Aging is a gift. There’s no doubt that growing older is a blessing, but when we want to improve or enhance our more mature skin, there seems to be endless options. A plethora of ‘miracle creams’ and products that claim to turn back the clock are everywhere on the market. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we have a true appreciation for inner beauty and wanting to look your best at every age. We want you to skip the angst of trying this-and-that, and present you with an option that actually works.

What is a PRP Facial?

The PRP Facial starts with a little poke as our resident registered nurse draws a little bit of your blood (PS, she’s a NICU nurse vet and gentle as it gets). Whilst the blood is separating into the platelet-rich plasma that will applied to your face, you’ll receive microneedling— a method that not only allows the PRP to be absorbed, and also stimulates collagen production. The microneedling session that stimulates collagen and then a layer of your own platelet-rich plasma is applied to rouse the skin at a cellular level.

The PRP Facial is gaining popularity because the treatment doesn’t use chemicals, rather your own platelet-rich plasma. You won’t encounter the risk of side effects from certain chemicals or ingredients. PRP isn’t about chaining your appearance, rather sparking your body to enhance itself naturally, allowing you to look your very best at any age. Also, PRP isn’t just for your face! It can be applied to your scalp for hair growth, your décolleté and even your hands for the same amazing results.

Schedule One Today

You might have a lot of questions, and we’re happy and here to answer them. If you’d like to learn more about PRP or any of our other services that might be able to help you achieve your desired skin goals, don’t hesitate to visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Sculptra For Body & Neck Rejuvenation 

If you have wrinkles or crepey skin on your chest, neck, and décolletage, Sculptra at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa helps gradually increase and replace lost collagen to rewind the signs of aging.

Don’t let crepey skin, sun damage, cellulite, and fine lines define how you feel about yourself or make you think twice about the clothing you wear. Sculptra is an FDA-approved aesthetic injectable that delivers long-lasting, natural-looking results. 

How Does Sculptra Work?

Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra fights signs of aging by stimulating your own collagen and elastin production. Instead of filling in lines with traditional dermal fillers, Sculptra restores your skin’s natural structure, support, and volume by replacing collagen. As a result, the skin becomes plumper and healthy-looking as treatments progress. In around 4-8 weeks, Sculptra will help gradually rebuild and replenish lost volume. 

Sculptra may also be combined with other procedures, including microneedling to take results further. 

What Causes Wrinkles and Volume Loss?

The skin is made up of collagen and elastin. These proteins give your skin structure and the ability to “snap back” after it’s tugged or moved. As we age, these proteins naturally reduce. Loss of collagen and elastin causes the skin to appear less smooth and less voluminous. 

Additionally, our skin is susceptible to the effects of sun damage and gravity, which can make you look older than you actually are. 

The Benefits of Sculptra

Sculptra corrects crepey-ness and shallow to deep lines and wrinkles in the nasolabial folds (smile lines), chin, marionette lines, temples, neck, decolletage, and chest. Recently, Sculptra has become one of the go-to treatments for cellulite on the body, lost volume in the buttocks, and can even target crepey skin above the knees. 

After treatment, you can expect the following.

  • Tightened, smoothed, and rejuvenated skin
  • Collagen-rich tissue is triggered to restore existing skin
  • Restored volume and increased structural support
  • More resilient and younger-looking skin
  • Improvements to the skin’s overall texture

Sculptra is non-invasive and doesn’t require any downtime or recovery period. The treatment is almost painless because Sculptra contains lidocaine, a numbing agent that will help keep you comfortable. In addition, you’ll be in the care of an actual registered nurse at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, allowing you the comfort of mind knowing you’re in good hands. Most patients don’t require additional numbing medication. Over time, your body will replace lost collagen to provide dramatic, long-lasting results that can last for up to two years. 

Why Use Sculptra For The Neck?

Sculptra is one of the best alternatives to plastic surgery to tighten and restore lost volume to the skin. If you prefer a less-invasive cosmetic procedure to a neck lift, Sculptra provides long-lasting skin tightening and firms the skin. Sculptra can also be used to prevent future wrinkles and creases from forming on your chest, neck, and décolletage. 

Ideal Candidates For Sculptra 

Sculptra may be a viable option for anyone who feels like their skin makes them look older. If you’re looking to reduce cellulite or give your chest region a younger-looking makeover, Sculptra works deep within the dermis to help restore structure and volume. 

You’ll begin to notice results within a few weeks post-treatment, with optimal results around 12 weeks. Want to learn more? Visit Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona for an absolutely free consultation. Give us a call and book today at 480-912-5325.

Your overall skin health is improved by restoring collagen and elastin, which helps give your skin a youthful appearance and overall glow. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Scarlet RF?

Essentially anyone who wants the anti-aging effects of a mini facelift but doesn’t want to undergo surgery can benefit from this procedure. Scarlet RF smoothes fine lines, tightens the skin, decreases pore size, and improves the skin’s overall texture. Treatments can also drastically improve acne and help fade acne scarring.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Scarlet RF treatments only take around an hour for the face and neck. Your skin may feel slightly warm after Scarlet RF but should subside quickly. There are no side effects, and you can return to your regular activities immediately following treatment. 

Most patients see visible tightening results immediately, with the dermal remodeling results appearing over time as your collagen and elastin fibers regenerate. Results will continue to improve over two to three months.

Improve your skin’s texture, pores, fine lines, scars, and more in just a few minutes. Scarlet RF can also be combined with other anti-aging therapies, including Botox, and dermal fillers for a more customized treatment plan.

Everything To Know About Lamprobe – Create Flawless Skin 

Do you have small skin irregularities you want to disappear? Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa has a solution for you. The Lamprobe is the latest breakthrough skincare innovation that uses non-invasive technology to treat minor skin irregularities in seconds without damaging the skin’s surface. 

The Lamprobe quickly and effectively treats superficial skin concerns, including skin tags, clogged pores, broken capillaries, milia, and more in just one treatment. Lamprobe is suitable for all skin types and ethnicities. 

Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is currently offering Lamprobe treatments in our Gilbert, Arizona location. Here’s more about skincare’s latest award-winning device. 

How Does it Work?

The Lamprobe machine uses a small probe, which touches your skin in the targeted spots. The skinny pen-like probe allows for the perfect precision every time, even targeting the most minor skin issues. 

The Lamprobe has a range of high and low radio frequencies that produce a current. The current electro-desiccates and electro-coagulates minor skin irregularities. In other words, the device is applied to your problem area for just two to five seconds. The current vaporizes cells at the desired spot to unveil more perfect-looking skin. The Lamprobe only treats the skin’s top layer (epidermis) and leaves the lower layer (dermis) untouched.  

The treatments are non-invasive with minimum discomfort. Many patients compare the feeling to a minor pinch to the skin. If you have sensitive or thin skin, the intensity settings can adjust easily to keep you comfortable. No anesthesia is required.

What Happens After Treatment?

Xeomin 101

Chances are you’ve heard of Botox to reduce the look of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and any other fine lines on the face. But Botox isn’t the only option for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Colair Beauty Lounge and Med Spa with the scoop on Xeomin

If you’re on the hunt for a simple, non-surgical, quick way to reduce facial lines and rejuvenate your appearance, Xeomin might be what you’re looking for. Xeomin is an FDA-approved treatment for moderate-to-severe facial lines and wrinkles. Xeomin is especially effective for treating glabellar lines – these are the pesky frown lines that form between your eyebrows. But the treatment can also be used to soften or remove frown lines, forehead lines, wrinkles around the eyes, and lines above your lip. 

Is Xeomin The Same as Botox?

Xeomin is similar to Botox and offers many of the same benefits. Both anti-aging cosmetic treatments use botulinum toxin A, which is approved for cosmetic use, to relax targeted facial muscles to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

With that being said, they are not the same drug. Xeomin is formulated with a different form of botulinum toxin with no accessory proteins. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Xeomin?

We get it. You want to look fresh, rested, and have fewer wrinkles. If you have concerns about fine lines and wrinkles, you could be a great candidate for Xeomin. 

If you can say ‘yes’ to the following, consider Xeomin to achieve your skin goals. 

  • You Want a More Youthful Appearance  – If frown lines between your eyes are a significant concern, Xeomin is currently the best treatment available for moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Xeomin injections are also excellent for individuals with age-related skin concerns or younger patients interested in taking preventative steps to delay the signs of aging. 
  • You’ve Developed a Resistance to Botox – It’s not uncommon to build up a resistance to Botox over time. Xeomin can also be an alternative treatment option if you have been using Botox for years and have built up a resistance to Botox. The more pure formulation of Xeomin helps reduce the chances of developing a resistance to it over the years. 
  • You’re Not Interested in Cosmetic Surgery – Xeomin relaxes your facial muscles, meaning they can no longer contract, so the skin on top remains smooth. Treatment is safe for men and women over 18 with all skin types, colors, and tones. No cutting, downtime, or anesthesia is necessary! 

What Can I Expect From a Xeomin Treatment?

Xeomin is a popular non-invasive treatment that works to rejuvenate your appearance. Xeomin injections are fast, safe, and effective for all skin types. Most patients don’t require any downtime, and treatment is usually less than an hour. After receiving Xeomin injections, you can return to your normal activities right away. 

Xeomin starts working immediately after it’s injected into your targeted facial muscles. Within a few days after treatment, you’ll be able to see your new, refreshed appearance. You should administer injections every three to four months for consistent results.
