Aesthetic Services Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is made from purified botulinum toxin. When Botox is injected into muscles, it blocks nerve signals that make muscles contract. As a result, the targeted muscles relax, and their associated wrinkles are diminished.

What types of wrinkles can Botox treat?

When you frequently use the same muscles to make facial expressions such as frowning, the constant creasing leads to wrinkles. Since Botox targets muscles, it treats dynamic wrinkles such as:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead furrows

You keep your natural appearance because your Signature Health and Wellness practitioner targets a few carefully selected muscles. The rest of your face can still express your emotions.

You’ll see results in 24-48 hours after your Botox injection. Your rejuvenated appearance lasts up to four months, and then you can get another injection to maintain your new appearance.*

How does the Cynosure PicoSure laser remove tattoos?

Cynosure’s PicoSure laser uses innovative PressureWave technology to deliver such short pulses of energy that the ink in your tattoo is pulverized into tiny dust-like particles. Then your body can quickly and easily eliminate the waste.

By comparison, other lasers that remove tattoos rely on heat from the laser to break apart the ink colors, which is a longer process.

PicoSure is also effective for hard-to-remove tattoos. It does an exceptional job of removing multicolored tattoos and inks that are hard to eliminate with other methods, such as green, blue, and black ink. The PicoSure laser also works on tattoos that were unsuccessfully removed during an earlier procedure.

How many PicoSure treatments will I need to remove my tattoo?

With the PicoSure laser, your sessions take less time and the ink is easier to remove with fewer treatments. However, the number of sessions you’ll need is based on variables like how many colors are in the tattoo, and the size, age, and location of the tattoo.

When you go in for a consultation, the Signature Health and Wellness team can give you an idea of your treatment time. You’ll need to wait four to six weeks between laser treatments to give your body time to remove the treated pigment and heal.

What other aesthetic services are available?

The PicoSure laser is effective for other aesthetic treatments such as:

  • Removing acne scars
  • Revitalizing your skin to diminish the signs of aging, such as wrinkles
  • Diminishing the appearance of brown spots, freckles, and other discoloration

Brown spots and facial discolorations are removed the same way as tattoos. Acne scars and wrinkles are smoothed away because treatment with the PicoSure laser triggers the production of collagen and elastin deep below the skin.

As collagen- and elastin-rich skin replaces old cells at the surface, scars and wrinkles are diminished, your skin becomes stronger, and you regain a more youthful appearance.
