UltraShape®

UltraShape® is revolutionizing the field of non-surgical dermatology fat reduction with its unique non-thermal ultrasound technology. UltraShape® has become the first and only non-invasive body shaping device cleared by the FDA that involves the use of focused, pulsed ultrasound energy to selectively and mechanically (non-thermally) eliminated targeted fat cells.

UltraShape® technique involves no cuts, incisions or injections, and makes the procedure nearly painless and completely scar-free. The ultrasound energy is focused only on the unwanted fat cells, which minimizes the risk of bruising, swelling and downtime. The patient can undergo the UltraShape® treatment in less than an hour, and resume their routine activities almost immediately.

Areas treated commonly with UltraShape® include the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, love handles, arms, knees, and bra line. The treatment has proved to be clinically safe and effective in numerous research studies. On the leading rating website RealSelf.com, UltraShape® has scored a whopping 96% “Worth It” rating.

Laser Hair Removal: Cost, Benefits, and Risks

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic dermatology procedures in the US today. Results with an advanced laser based treatment are more sustainable and aesthetically superior compared to various traditional hair removal methods.

The treatment involves focusing of the laser beams directly over the targeted hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs laser light, which leads to the gradual weakening and disintegration of the unwanted hair. Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing laser hair removal to patients in Austin, TX and other areas.

Benefits

Laser hair removal is an advanced skin care procedure designed to remove unwanted hair from areas such as the legs, arms, face, underarms, back, and the bikini line. High precision with the laser technology is a fantastic advantage because the treatment provider can selectively target coarse, dark hair while leaving the surrounding healthy skin undamaged.

Another key benefit of laser hair removal technique is that a larger area can be treated effectively in a short time. Each pulse of the laser energy is delivered in a fraction of a second, and it can treat multiple hairs at the same time.

On average, an area approximately the size of a quarter can be treated per second. Treatment of smaller areas such as skin around the lips can be treated in about one minute, while larger areas such as the legs or back may take nearly one hour.

Safety and predictability of results is another key benefit, as long as the laser hair removal treatment is received from an experienced dermatology expert. Dr. Zimmet is a leading dermatologist providing laser hair removal and other procedures to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding communities.

Procedure

Prior to the treatment, the laser expert will trim the targeted hair to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be calibrated to match with the hair type, thickness, color, and location as well as skin color. The patient will be provided with an eye shield, and a cooling gel or another cooling technique may be applied to protect the top layer of the skin.

FAQ’s and More About Laser Hair Removal

Short and controlled pulses of laser light will be delivered to the targeted area. The treatment provider will carefully determine optimal laser delivery settings for safe and desirable outcomes. Following the procedure, the patient will be given cold water or ice packs to keep them comfortable. Multiple laser treatment sessions will be planned, with each session spaced about four to six weeks apart.

Financial Implications

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that the average dollar amount of a single laser hair removal treatment session in the US is about $235. However, this cost can vary from one practice to another depending on several factors such as the size of treatable area, number of treatments, and the laser expert’s skills and reputation.

Recovery

The treated area will appear sunburned for a day or two, and the condition can be eased with moisturizers and cool compresses. The treated hair will begin to fall out after about a month. Sunscreen should be used for several weeks to help prevent temporary color change in the treated areas.
