Body Contouring CoolSculpting

Get Cool this Fall

CoolSculpting isn’t just for beach bodies, it can be for fitting into those cute sweater dresses or leggings for fall and we want you to feel just as great in your cool weather outfits as you did on the beach in the summer! The CoolSculpting procedure at Laser of Arlington eliminates those stubborn inches safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This state of the art fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise. 

CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle in every outfit! So how do we “freeze away fat”? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized and then die. 

Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and does away with the dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you!  Reshaping your body is possible! We’ll help you develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your unique concerns and trouble areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results as well and your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. 

If you’ve wondered about body contouring options and are done putting it off, schedule your free consultation with us and let’s get you feeling your best this fall!

5 Ways to Fight Skin Discoloration After a Summer of Fun

Skin discoloration is a common concern among many women and men and we know that after a summer in the sun, this can lead to issues with the surface of your skin, specifically dark spots. The good news is that there are a number of dark spot treatments in Northern VA that can diminish hyperpigmentation and restore a clear, even complexion with little to no down time!

Here are five options to consider, depending on the depth, pigmentation, and how long you’ve had your dark spots.

1. Hydroquinone

For women and men considering dark spot treatments, hydroquinone is often recommended as the first line of defense. It is a topical cream that contains two-to-four percent of hydroquinone and may be purchased over-the-counter or via a prescription from your dermatologist. Hydroquinone is applied to the skin in small amounts and diminishes dark spots by blocking an enzyme called tyrosinase. Results can be seen in as little as two weeks, but it usually takes 8 to 12 weeks for truly noticeable improvement. (Pro-tip ask about our customized skin care options)

2. Lasers

Lasers are an extremely effective option for the treatment of hyperpigmentation and dark spots and one of our most preferred methods They deliver focused beams of light, which are attracted to melanin and able to break down dark spots into small particles that can then be absorbed into the skin. IPL is also among the most-popular dark spot treatments in NoVA. It applies pulses of broad-spectrum light to filter out and neutralize discoloration in the skin.

Both lasers and IPL are noninvasive and nonsurgical and require little to no downtime which makes them a favorite.

3. Microneedling

Microneedling is an in-office treatment that can correct a variety of cosmetic concerns including dark spots. It utilizes ultra-thin needles to make tiny holes in the skin which stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. Topical products are often used afterwards to enhance microneedling effects

4. Chemical Peels

Chemical peels target dark spots with a different mechanism of action than lasers, IPL, and microneedling. They use medical-grade acid solutions to remove the outermost layer of skin and promote cellular renewal, reducing, or even completely removing, the appearance of dark spots.

5. Microdermabrasion

If you are seeking a more gentle dark spot treatment, microdermabrasion could be an excellent option. This procedure exfoliates dead skin cells and other skin debris using particles, of varying coarseness, and a vacuum mechanism. Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types, has zero recovery, and is ideal for milder hyperpigmentation. This is such a gentle alternative that there is no downtime and you’re able to resume like normal once the procedure is complete.

If you are looking for dark spot treatments in Northern VA, please call our office today to schedule a comprehensive consultation with one of our highly skilled and talented providers and we will make sure you leave our office glowing and refreshed.

Body Contouring CoolSculpting Dermal Filler Dysport Injectables Restylane

New Year New You

Last year is over! That means this can be YOUR YEAR!! With that being said, what are you going to do differently to get the promotion, meet your self-care goals, or to take your relationship to the next level? How about start with a full body transformation, and great news…WE CAN HELP!!

Below are a few ideas of how to incorporate a few of our services to give you the self-esteem boost you so desperately need!

1. Let’s start with getting rid of those crows feet and forehead wrinkles! Dysport, which is a popular injectable treatment that can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Is a great service that can help you get 10-20 years back in time! It is best noted for its natural-looking results.  Treatments with Dysport are often compared with those using Botox, though there are some differences. Here are the additional benefits:

  • Less evidence of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Diminished crow’s-feet and frown lines
  • Natural Looking Wrinkle Reduction
  • Dysport does not entail surgery or anesthesia
  • Go back to work the same day after treatment

2. All right ladies and gentlemen, what about thin lips or sunken features? Well, Restylane is your answer! It was created to emulate the body’s own hyaluronic acid, and comes in preparations that contain three different particle sizes that allow doctors to customize treatments to the individual.

  • Fine particles are used for detailed shaping and fine wrinkles.
  • Medium particles are used for medium to severe folds and wrinkles.
  • Large particles are used to create volume and for severe wrinkles.

Studies suggest that patients treated with Dysport and Restylane in the same areas of the face have better and longer-lasting results than when either product was used alone. Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correctmoderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.The combination of the two products provide a softer, more natural look than many other treatment modalities.

While Dysport works to relax fine to moderate facial lines and wrinkles, Restylane fills in those lines. Dysport helps to maintain the benefits of the Restylane in a combination that works beautifully to restore a youthful, well-rested appearance.

3. Last, but certainly not least, what about the Quarantine15?? Have no fear, CoolSculpting® is here! Freeze your stubborn fat and feel great about the way you look in your power suit! The unique CoolSculpting® fat-freezing technology is a nonsurgical, scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots such as the abdomen, flanks, or under the chin in as little as one session.
