Snap, Crackle, Pop – Tat is Gone!

21 Aug

The number of people who want a tattoo gone is growing. A 2015 study showed that 23% of those with ink regretted it. But it’s expensive to remove, and the limitations of traditional laser tattoo removal include:

  • Limited treatment of tattoo colors and types
  • Inability to effectively break up ink particles
  • Discomfort during treatments
  • Certain risks, particularly with darker skin tones

PicoWay pixNow, there’s PicoWay tattoo removal. We offer this treatment option, and even our staff is taking advantage of the easy and quick removal process. It’s a laser that removes the tat with light and sound. The sound fractures the tattoos pigment—it literally snaps, crackles and pops. PicoWay treats multi-colored tattoos on different skin types.

Here are the main differences between PicoWay and other systems.FDA cleared for a wide range of tattoos, PicoWay offers better results in few treatments for different skin types.

  • With its ultra-fast delivery of concentrated, high-power energy, PicoWay will shatter even tiny ink particles making it easier for the body to clear the tattoo ink.
  • PicoWay’s ultra-short pulses also optimize the delivery of energy to the targeted ink particles ensuring the ink is effectively treated, while the least amount of heat gets transferred into the skin.
  • Since PicoWay’s pulses are fast, you’ll feel minimal discomfort throughout the procedure.

All About Vaginal Rejuvenation

30 Jun

labiaplasty fastest growing.jpg

More than ever, women are empowered to decide for themselves how their bodies look, feel and function. Even the most intimate areas of a woman’s anatomy can be sculpted and refined to enhance her sensuality, invigorate her sexuality and maybe even invite a sense of sexual prowess. All this and more is possible for vaginal rejuvenation / labia reduction patients from Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.

Labia reduction is not a new procedure, but is receiving fresh attention now that so many women are determined to seize their sexuality and discuss issues affecting their sex lives with their doctors. If you suffer from extended or stretched labia that are uncomfortable, cause embarrassment, hygiene frustration or are even painful during sex, labia reduction surgery can alleviate these problems. Your vagina can be a beautiful declaration of your taste and style rather than an impediment or humiliation.

Labia reduction is a procedure to reduce the size and length of the labia minora (the inner lips) and/or the labia majora (the outer lips). The labia minora are necessary to cover the clitoris and vaginal opening and can be surgically reduced while still maintaining their necessary function. Also known as labiaplasty, this procedure can help women who experience pain, humiliation and hygiene problems due to large and protruding labia. The labia majora can also be decreased in size by reducing fat deposits.

If you were born with very thin labia or if you’ve lost volume over time or due to trauma, labia rejuvenation and labia repair can enhance your labia and add overall shape to the outer areas of your vagina. A pubic lift can also be performed when the pubic area descends or collapses downwards due to weight fluctuation or age. This procedure raises the entire area by surgically removing excess skin and fat from the region and then re-draping the skin to lift the pubic appearance.
