The quest for ageless beauty will never go out of style. It is no longer the exclusive concern of women either. Both men and women now want to look their best at any age.

Invasive beauty treatments have, however, lost favor with findings of undesirable side effects. Fortunately, advances in science and technology have produced non-invasive alternatives for physical enhancement and these have been made widely accessible to the population. Yes, non-invasive beauty procedures for permanent hair removal, skin rejuvenation and cellulite treatments for both men and women are available in Tampa.

Laser Hair Removal in Tampa

One of the newer methods of laser hair removal, now available in Tampa, makes use of Intense Pulsed Light Treatments or IPL. This type of laser treatment uses full spectrum light emitted from flash lamps to destroy the hair follicle and prevent hair from growing back, resulting in permanent hair removal. The good news is that it does so without damaging the skin or causing any untoward side effects.

This hair treatment, however, works only on hair that is in the growth stage. Patients, therefore, need five to nine sessions that are each ten to twelve weeks apart in order to catch all the hair growth cycles and finally achieve complete and permanent hair removal.

To make the laser treatment more comfortable for patients, more advanced laser equipment like the Candela GentleLASE system use a coolant on the skin prior to every laser pulse.

Skin Rejuvenation in Tampa

Men and women alike can also use Intense Pulsed Light Treatments or IPL for skin rejuvenation without any need for drastic and invasive plastic surgery.

IPL is effective in provoking the skin to produce collagen, thereby smoothening out existing facial lines and wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming. It erases brown spots and freckles brought about by age, hormones and sun damage while minimizing pore size.

Wrinkles and brown spots do not occur only in the face. They also show up in the neck, chest, back, arms and even on hands. IPL can be used to treat these areas, as well. The only difference is that facial treatments may need three to five sessions that are two to four weeks apart while treatments for the neck, chest, back, arms and hands may take two to four sessions that are four weeks apart.

Another problem that plagues many men and women today has to do with unsightly vascular lesions or spider veins on the face, the legs or elsewhere on the body. Again, IPL is the best treatment of choice to clear up these blood vessels, usually requiring merely one to two treatments that are four weeks apart.

Cellulite Treatments in Tampa

Apart from skin and hair, one of the greatest concerns of men and women is body shape. Liposuction used to be the catch word for slimming and contouring the body. Unfortunately, it has been proven that liposuction does not treat cellulite
