Laser Hair Removal

If you are tired of shaving, painful waxing or electrolysis, and messy creams, laser hair removal is the answer. It is the most effective method of eliminating unwanted hair. It is a non-invasive procedure that works by selectively concentrating light energy in the hair follicle. This comfortable procedure can be performed in as little as 5 minutes to 2 hours depending on the area treated, you can return to regular activity immediately following this procedure. Laser Hair removal can be performed on any area of the face or body and is faster and easier than other methods of hair removal.

Laser hair removal requires a series of treatments that are based on several factors. First, hair cells grow in cycles and can only be treated in their growth phase. The coarseness of the hair in the area being treated can also affect the number of treatments, along with the depths and densities of the follicle.

We utilize the Candela GentleYAG laser which is the latest technology available for hair removal and it is FDA approved to treat all skin types, specializing in dark and tanned skin. Variable pulse durations and multiple spot sizes that the GantleYAG provides ensures the best results because it is able to adjust to every hair and skin type; it also gives the GentleYAG leg and facial vein treatment capabilities. The Dynamic Cooling Device technology provides consistent epidermal cooling and patient comfort.

Why Terrell Clinic & Aesthetics is Leading the Way in Painless Hair Removal!

To elminate pain we utilize The Serenity Pro in conjunction with our laser hair removal treatements. The Serenity Pro System is an innovative approach for reducing pain during aesthetic laser or IPL treatments. The Serenity Pro relies on Pneumatic Skin Flattening Technology (PSF™). PSF works by creating a vacuum through a chamber that pushes blood away from the treatment site to block pain signals to the brain. This process relies on afferent inhibition of pain transmission to the vertebral column.  When skin receptors sense a suctioning effect, they transmit a fast neural signal to the vertebral column which blocks the pain nerve synaptic gap, therefore pain signals never reach the brain.

Laser Vein Removal

Laser technology offers excellent results in reducing spider veins and facial redness. Our laser delivers precise dosages of energy to each vein, with minimal risk to surrounding the skin. During treatment, light energy is delivered through a special hand piece directly to the targeted vein. This energy is absorbed, causing thermal coagulation of the blood vessel. Over a short period of time the vessel is then absorbed by the body. One treatment is normally sufficient, but multiple treatments may be necessary.

The GentleYAG laser that Terrell Clinic & Aesthetics utilizes uses a Dynamic Cooling Devise which sprays cryogen onto the skin right before and right after the laser pulses to cool the skin, acting as an anesthetic, providing the ultimate comfort available.

How Long Do Results Last?

Once a vein or vessel has been destroyed, it will not return. However the treatment is not able to stop the development of more veins in the future. Patients who have had laser could see new veins over time, especially those who continue on with unprotected sun exposure. Sunscreen is recommended for everyone, and it can be preventative for people prone to facial veins.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are small, thin capillaries that lie close to the surface of the skin. They are connected to a larger venous system, though they are not an essential part of it since they do not actually carry blood to the heart. While spider veins and flushed skin don't usually indicate a major medical problem, most people would be happy to be rid of them. Spider veins form when excess blood backs up in the blood stream. The excess blood creates pressure. The body releases the pressure by creating new veins on the skin's surface. The primary problem with spider veins is their unsightly appearance, but they can also cause aching, swelling, burning.

People within certain ethic groups are often more prone to spider veins, so heredity certainly plays a role. So can hormone therapy and oral contraceptives. Aging related to sun damage is also a big contributor. Ultraviolet light exposure is one of the more controllable factors in preventing facial veins, so avoiding the sun and using sunscreen is recommended. Facial veins and flushed skin are also commonly seen with rosacea, a chronic but treatable skin condition.

Skin Tightening

Sagging skin and wrinkles on your face are some of the most obvious signs of age. Until recently, the only ways you could fight the effects of time on your facial appearance involved injections or surgical facelifts, with results that too often resulted in an obvious, unnatural appearance.

Skin Tightening from Terrell Clinic & Aesthetics offers you another safe & effective option.  TCA's Skin Tightening treatment uses clinically-tested infrared and radio frequency (RF) energies to stimulate healthy collagen remodeling inside your skin, to tighten sagging skin and naturally fill in wrinkles at the jaw line, around your eyes, at your brow line and around your mouth and cheeks.

Unlike treatments that paralyze or mechanically tighten your skin, our Skin Tightening stimulates natural, healthy processes inside your skin that make it look and act younger and firmer, the way it used to be.

After as few as three skin tightening treatment sessions spaced three to four weeks apart, wrinkles start to fill in and sagging skin tightens up and return to its original contours. The benefits of Skin Tightening treatments can last as long as two years.

How does Skin Tightening work?
The infrared and radio frequency (RF) energies produced  penetrate the surface of your skin to heat the collagen inside your skin and promote collagen remodeling over time, while immediately promoting skin tissue tightening as a result of deep heating. The treatment head actively cools the surface of your skin to minimize or eliminate any heat-related discomfort during the skin tightening treatment process. The cooling factor of the treatment head is adjustable to each individual patient's heat sensitivity.

Collagen is a key component of your skin's elasticity and firmness. Once collagen remodeling is promoted by Skin Tightening treatments, skin becomes naturally more elastic and firm, filling in wrinkles and bringing sagging areas back closer to their original contours.

Skin Tightening Safety
Unlike injections or plastic surgery, TCA's Skin Tightening is non-invasive and does not involve any breaks in the surface of your skin, so it does not present an infection risk or require any recovery period.

We will ensure that any concerns are identified before treatments begin to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the skin tightening process.
