Laser hair removal in New Jersey is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed today. It is important to pick a provider who is experienced at treating all skin types including ethnic skin and tanned skin. There are many different types of lasers available for hair removal and it is crucial to pick the right laser for the skin type. While it is a safe procedure when perfumed by the right provider, risks include pigment changes, superficial burns, and rarely permanent scarring. Risks tend to be more of a concern for darker skin types since the pigment in the skin can potentially absorb the laser energy causing complications. While lasers such as the alexandrite and diode are utilized for lighter skin types, the YAG laser is the safest laser for darker skin types.
While laser hair removal is extremely effective, it is by no means permanent. People also assume that all the hairs will be removed. While many clients enjoy a 70% to 90% reduction in hair, some clients may not experience the same reduction. Hair growth can recurs and typically results in finer and lighter hair which may not be amenable to further treatments. Significant hair regrowth can also occur after pregnancy, in certain thyroid conditions, medications, and polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Costs for laser hair removal in New Jersey is dependent on several factors. In New Jersey, laser hair removal is considered laser surgery and requires a provider to hold a medical license. Laser hair removal can be performed by physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. In other states, requirements are not as stringent and laser hair removal is performed by technicians or aestheticians. Costs per treatment are typically higher when performed by a physician. Costs can start at $100 per treatment for a small area such as the lip or chin to close to a $1000 for larger areas such as the legs of back. The price can also be much lower when a technician performs the treatment and depends on the type of facility where it is performed. As a consumer it is important to research the provider and facility. Look for reviews for laser hair removal and make sure you understand all the facts.
Botulinum toxin injections, under the brand name of Botox and Dysport, are one of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed today. Botox and Dysport injections in New Jersey are typically performed by medical providers with a license. It is important to have a thorough understanding of anatomy to perform the injections. Botox injections are typically performed in the brow region but can also be used to diminish wrinkles in the forehead region, crow's feet, as well as other areas such as vertical lip lines and lower face. Costs for Botox injections can vary and price is either dependent on the areas injected or the total number of units utilized. The price per unit can range anywhere from $9 per unit to $25 per unit. Ultimately, the cost will depend on the experience of the injector. Be wary of extremely low prices or when paying per area as you may not be aware of the total number of units injected. At Ethos Spa, Skin and Laser Center, our customers know exactly how many units are injected and cost is based on the total number of units injected.
Laser technology can also be utilized for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing. Laser can be utilized to treat a wide variety of cosmetic concerns such as acne, age spots, melasma, fine lines, enlarged pores, and skin laxity. Lasers can be either non-ablative with minimal downtime to ablative where down time is several weeks.
