Gentle Treatments to Dip Your Toes in the Cosmetic Pool

At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we deliver top-notch cosmetic care to all kinds of patients. Some of our regulars are true pros who have enjoyed just about every procedure under the sun, from anti-aging laser treatments to nonsurgical fat reduction. But we also work with plenty of patients who have never set foot into a med spa before. If that sounds like you, and you’re a tad intimidated by the unknown, it might be a good idea to start small with gentle, mild procedures. In that case, here are some you may want to consider:

Gentle Treatments to Dip Your Toes in the Cosmetic PoolSilkPeel® Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is nothing new—it essentially “buffs away” dead and damaged skin cells from the surface of your skin. But SilkPeel® has given the age-old favorite a new and exciting twist. This pain-free procedure combines microdermabrasion with gentle suction and a process called Dermalinfusion®, which infuses customized topical medications into your refreshed skin. These medications are based on your desired results: anti-aging, brightening, acne control, etc.

Fire and Ice Facial by iS Clinical®

The term “facial” can mean anything from a truly cleansing medical procedure to a simple face-washing and application of a couple of topical products that provide little benefit beyond relaxation. At Laser Lights, the facial we offer is truly results-focused. It uses two distinct steps – a Resurfacing Masque to clear away dead and damaged skin cells, followed by a Rejuvenating Masque to hydrate and revitalize the fresh skin. It may be a brief and gentle treatment, but the results speak for themselves, especially when this facial is part of a consistent skin care routine.


Laser procedures can sound downright scary for someone who’s never tried them. If you want to start simple in the light therapy game, photofacial rejuvenation might be the right choice. It’s unique because it’s non-ablative, which means that the procedure doesn’t actually pierce the skin. Instead, it focuses on breaking up the pigments that form age spots, sun damage, and other issues on the face, hands, and nearly any other area of the body. For most patients, four to six sessions will do the trick.

More Tips for Beginners

Even if the mild procedures above aren’t focused on the cosmetic issues you want to address, our licensed and experienced medical aestheticians have a few tips to help you ease into the world of skin treatments:

  • Start with a small area. For instance, if you want laser hair removal, start with, say, your underarms or upper lip before committing to a larger area like the legs or back.
  • Be honest with your aesthetician. Tell them you’re a newbie, and communicate your concerns so they can tailor your treatment accordingly. They’re all about giving you the best possible experience, so let them.
  • If you’re concerned about discomfort, ask us about numbing as an option. We offer topical numbing cream that you can apply before your treatment to keep you comfortable.
  • Breathe and relax. Trust that you are in the qualified hands of someone who’s here to help you.

Cosmetic treatments don’t have to be stressful. Sure, the results are the main focus, but all of our aestheticians also know how important it is that you have a positive experience all the way around. That’s why they each let their natural joy and cheerfulness shine through in their work.
