Exciting New Treatment!

I am excited to bring an effective treatment for minor skin irregularities to the Mooresville area! If you’d like to have more flawless skin, then this is for you. Intended for irregularities including Dilated Capillaries (on the face, neck, and chest), Cherry Angiomas, Fibromas, Skin Tags, Raised Keratoses, Milia, Cholesterol Deposits and Sebaceous Hyperplasia.

These unsightly places are not dangerous, so they are often times not addressed by dermatologists. Most women are unhappy about these types of blemishes and want them gone, but are not sure what to do about them.

That’s where I come in!

As an esthetician I can help address these areas with a Class 1 FDA approved device called a Lamprobe. Certified and well trained in this treatment, I can help to give your skin a more even tone by reducing the amount of textured, raised blemishes, helping you achieve a more flawless look.

As with any esthetic or cosmetic procedure, the treatment goal is improvement, not perfection.

Most blemished areas require 1 treatment and only same day down time! That means you can wear makeup and go about your life the next day. That is impressive!

What to expect.

A slight prickly feel that lasts only 3-5 seconds on average per irregularity. A frosted or white look to areas treated same day. Scabbing while your body heals itself naturally at about 36 hours post treatment. Then typical healing of a blemish.

FAQ’s

Does it hurt? 

There is momentary stinging or prickly feeling depending on the area.

When can I wear makeup again?

You should wait a minimum of 24 hours to touch areas treated or use any skincare or makeup products on treated areas.

Are there any side effects?

There is a likely scabbing with larger treated areas. Scabs are natural bandaids and should not be prematurely removed or picked at, as this could cause scarring. Temporary discoloration of the area as the skin heals, is to be expected.

Contraidications

You are not a candidate for this treatment if you are pregnant, have open wounds in the area to  be treated, or have metal implants. Those with diabetes will need a doctor’s note for consent to treatment. Lesions that are questionable will not be treated. Be sure to visit a dermatologist annually if you have a history of abnormal growths or skin cancer, or a family history of skin cancer.

What makes me a skin care expert?

12 years as a licensed Skin Therapist (Esthetician) and 20 years in the cosmetic and skin care industry.

Annual continuing education and licensing renewal with my state’s Department of Cosmetic Arts keeps me up to date.

This is a subject I study on a regular basis. All information is a collection of my licensing education, skin journals and articles I have read, as well as continuing education hours. I am passionate about helping people have healthy skin that they are confident in.

I am not a doctor and I do not diagnose or treat illness. This information is not a substitute for medical care or advice.
