Give Yourself the Gift of Happier Skin This Holiday Season

Give Yourself the Gift of Happier Skin This Holiday Season | Newport Tattoo Removal

There’s no denying the joy to be found in finding the perfect holiday gifts for your loved ones. The problem is that the hustle and bustle of the holidays often means neglecting to take care of yourself, which may leave you feeling tired or run down. Why not give yourself a gift this year? Spend a bit of time receiving laser therapy so that you can once again love the skin you’re in.

Remove Dark Spots

Hyperpigmentation of the skin is common in people who spend lots of time in the sun or use tanning beds. Unfortunately, those dark spots can make someone feel less comfortable with their appearance. If you have spots that you wish would fade away, now is your chance. PicoSure’s laser technology uses tiny but powerful light pulses to fade the extra melanin that causes brown patches, freckles and moles. The technology is safe for use on most parts of the body, including your neck and chest, hands and arms, legs and face. PicoSure’s non-invasive treatment takes about 20-30 minutes per session, and the number of sessions necessary depends on the size and darkness of the spot. Most fade in six or fewer appointments.

Rejuvenate Your Skin

PicoSure laser treatment does more than remove dark spots; it can also help you reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and other imperfections. The laser improves the production of collagen and elastin in your skin, which works to fill in fine lines and reduce the appearance of pitting or other scars, providing you with a healthier and more youthful appearance. Although specific treatment varies depending on your needs, most rejuvenation treatments take about 30 minutes and require two or three appointments. Minor redness and swelling may last for a day or two but otherwise, there are typically no major side effects.

Get Rid of an Old Tattoo

Whether prodded on by youthful rebellion, a bit too much alcohol or someone who wasn’t the amazing artist they claimed to be, nearly 20 percent of people have a regrettable tattoo. If you’re part of the 20 percent, you’re in luck. PicoSure also works as a fast and easy laser tattoo removal option. The laser light bursts work to remove the underlying ink in the skin, including multicolored designs and recalcitrant tattoos. Keep in mind that tattoo removal works a bit differently from other skin treatments. The number of sessions required will depend on the size and color of your tattoo, and you’ll need to wait up to six weeks between each session to give the pigment time to leave the body.

Don’t skip yourself on your holiday gift list this year. Newport Tattoo Removal can help you relax, rejuvenate and fall in love with your skin again. Call us for a free consultation at: (949) 631-9009.

Dark Spots on the Skin: What They Are and How To Get Rid of Them

Dark Spots on the Skin: What They Are and How To Get Rid of Them

From moles to freckles, nearly everybody has variation in skin tone that leads to some areas being darker than others. Skin discoloration can occur for many reasons and leave some people feeling the need to repair the discoloration. To determine whether you should get rid of your dark spots, it first helps to understand why you have them.

Age Is Often a Factor

For many people, the appearance of hyperpigmentation is simply a sign of aging. Although most people begin to exhibit hyperpigmentation upon reaching middle age, those who exposed themselves to more UV light in younger years often develop darker spots or more of them, especially on the face, arms, shoulders and other places that receive lots of direct sunlight.

Sometimes Dark Spots Are Due to a Skin Condition

Several skin conditions are known to cause dark spots. The most common type is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a type of discoloration that occurs after acne or another type of inflammatory lesion. Other possible causes include:

  • Melasma
  • Chloasma
  • Poikiloderma of Civatte
  • Linea nigra
  • Riehl’s Melanosis
  • Erythromelanosis follicularis

Medication Could Contribute to Dark Spots

Some types of medication cause patients to become more sensitive to sunlight, which may result in dark spots. These include some estrogen pills, antibiotics in the tetracycline family and medications that include amiodarone to treat irregular heartbeat. Sometimes, anticonvulsants, phenothiazines or sulfonamides can cause discoloration as well. If you suspect one of your medications may be the culprit, consider asking your doctor if there is an alternative treatment.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Dark Spots

If your skin is developing hyperpigmentation and you aren’t sure why, talk to your physician or a dermatologist. He or she can help you determine the cause and whether you should treat them. Even if your dermatologist doesn’t see a medical reason to remove dark spots, you may choose to do so for cosmetic reasons. An increasingly popular treatment option is the PicoSure system. The FDA-approved laser treatment aids in removing several types of hyperpigmentation, including freckles, dark stretch marks or acne scars, brown spots and pigmented lesions.

How It Works

PicoSure uses tiny pulses to penetrate the dark spots on your skin and break down the damaged layers, boosting production of elastin and collagen and creating smoother, healthier skin in the process. Although most people feel a bit of tenderness for a couple of days afterward, the treatment causes minimal pain and discomfort overall and does not require as many appointments as some other options.

Many laser skin treatment professionals, including Newport Tattoo Removal, now use PicoSure as a standard treatment option for dark spots. Consider checking into the treatment for a minimally invasive way to feel more comfortable in your skin. You can receive a free consultation at Newport Tattoo Removal by calling: (949) 631-9009.

Skin Rejuvenation

Wrinkles are a common problem, and as you age they are likely to become more severe and noticeable. With our PicoSure laser treatments you can reduce the appearance of wrinkles creating a more youthful look. Possible trouble spots you can treat at Newport Tattoo Removal include:

  • Static wrinkles: these are the folds and creases which are visible on your face at all times. Often they will appear around the corners of your eyes and mouth, as well as on the forehead
  • Dynamic wrinkles: not all wrinkles are visible all the time. If you have a problem spot that only shows up when you are making a certain expression, that is a dynamic wrinkle. These are most commonly seen in smile lines
  • Skin tone loss: over time the supportive structures in your face can deteriorate, causing the skin to sag and opening the door for cellulite to develop

Spot and Blemish Treatment

If you have any marks on your skin and want them removed, a laser treatment can help. Your specialist will use a PicoSure laser to target the discolored area, breaking down the melanin in the spot so that your body can process and remove it. Once a discoloration is removed with this process, is usually gone for good, so you don’t have to worry about it coming back in a few months. An average session lasts between 20 and 30 minutes, with between three to six sessions in total required to fully remove the color.  Discolorations which can be treated include:

  • Freckles
  • Sun spots
  • Moles
  • Birth marks
  • Burst blood vessels
