I was recently invited to LaserTouch Aesthetics in New York City to review their services. LaserTouch Aesthetics offers cosmetic procedures and laser hair removal center as well as laser skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion, cellulite treatment, smartlipo and other aesthetic procedures.
The office is located in a pristine Manhattan office building with crisp white interior. The staff was friendly and took the time to answer all of my questions and to alleviate all of my concerns. After a 15 minute consultation, I decided to try skin tightening, Microdermabrasion and Laser Hair Removal.
Titan Skin Tightening can be used on the face, abdomen and arms. The Cutera Titan® uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath the skin’s surface. Titan uses a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece. The procedure is not painless, it feels like your skin is near a lit match but the feeling subsides very quickly. And skin tightening takes several uses to see a noticeable difference, unfortunately.
Microdermabrasion is mechanical exfoliation with a diamond tip device that buffs away sun spots, acne scarring and skin pigmentation and vacuums the dead skin cells away. I’ve had a similar procedure, vibradermabrasion, so I knew what to expect. The results were noticeable right way, my skin looked incredibly bright with a lot less scaring.
Laser Hair Removal is effective in significantly reduce hair permanently, and who couldn’t use a little more of that?! I had brazilian bikini laser hair removal and laser hair removal under my arms. Let me just say that it is NOT painless, Ouch! The treatment takes about 10 minutes but it felt like a rubber band being snapped against my genitals. But when it was all done, it looked and felt great, and I was pain free. Treatment plans vary for hair removal but generally consist of 6-8 sessions for the shoulders and below, and 8-10 treatments for the neck and above. So if I want to maintain this look, I’m going to have to endure a little more pain.
Overall, I had a great visit to LaserTouch Aesthetics, the services were professionally done and the staff was great. Have you ever had laser hair removal?
