Your Summer Cosmetic Skin Treatment Questions Answered

Laser Lights CosmeticQ.) Why is eyelash tinting so popular during the summer?

A.) Typically, people who have light colored hair also have light eyelashes and eyebrows. Eyelash and brow tinting adds a darker pigment to the lashes and brows, providing a similar visual balance to that created by mascara, eyelash extensions, brow pencil, or other eye makeup. Eyelash and eyebrow tinting are especially popular during the summer months because makeup doesn’t always mix well with outdoor activities. Plus, one session can provide two to three months of tint.

Q.) How do I know which skin care products are right for me?

A.) With so many skin care products on the market, it’s difficult to know what will best address your specific skin condition. Not to mention, trying to find the right product can get expensive and frustrating after several failed attempts. For that reason, we offer a skin analysis service (pre-skin treatment consultation) to determine which products will best address your needs.

Q.)  What’s the difference between a chemical peel and a facial?

A.) While both treatments correct skin imperfections, facials are typically much milder than chemical peels. During a chemical peel, chemical solutions are applied to the face to remove the damaged outer layer of skin. Although chemicals are used in some of our facial treatments, the chemicals used in a chemical peel treatment penetrate much deeper and produce visible peeling. Patients who have never had a chemical peel may want to start out with a facial or a light chemical peel.

Q.) Does Laser Lights offer any treatments to reduce acne?

A.) The treatment we suggest will depend on the severity of your acne.  Microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and the acne facial can help with milder forms of acne.  Our acne light therapy uses light to kill the acne-causing bacteria typically associated with more severe cases. If you aren’t sure which treatment will best help improve your acne, schedule a pre-skin treatment consultation.
