Father’s Day is an opportunity to thank one of the people we tend to take for granted most often. For many of us, it feels like a given—our dad is always there and he’s always in our corner. But when it’s time to thank and honor someone with a gift, sometimes those who mean the most to us are those we find it most difficult to shop for. After all, what gift could possibly thank someone for a lifetime of support and encouragement? So this year, instead of getting Dad an item, try giving him an experience, a day when he can take time out from taking care of everyone else and just enjoy his day. At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we have a few services that can help you show your appreciation this Father’s Day.
In many families, Dad is the rock—he tries to support everyone else by putting on a cool and collected face during times of stress. Giving your father an appointment with our licensed and experienced massage therapist will show him that you realize how much stress he takes on, and that you want him to have the relaxation that he very much deserves. If your father does a lot of manual labor, his muscles will appreciate the massage even more.
Spa treatments are far from a “ladies only” activity. Our men’s facial is specially formulated for a man’s skin, cleansing away the pollution and skin-damaging particles he comes into contact with every day and massaging away the muscle tension that causes furrowed brows and other wrinkles.
Laser tattoo removal has come a long way, and if Dad is always talking about how much he regrets getting a tattoo in his younger years, today’s technology can remove his tattoo in fewer sessions and give him back a complexion that he can be proud of.
Laser Lights Gift Certificate
If you’d rather let your father choose whether a facial, laser hair removal, or other treatment will best fit his needs, Laser Lights gift certificates are always available, and they make a great gift by saying, “I want you to feel relaxed and taken care of.”
At Laser Lights, we’re honored every day to be able to help hard-working dads feel more confident in their appearance. Regardless of how you spend June 21st, take some time to show your father how much you care.

Wedding season is upon us, and for many of us, that means we’re getting excited to celebrate our loved ones’ special days and reconnect with friends and family. But if you’re a bride-to-be, your wedding has probably been at the forefront of your mind for months. At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we specialize in helping our patients feel beautiful, so to lend a hand to blushing brides, we’re offering a few tips to help you look your best for your wedding day and beyond.
Give Your Skin a Once-Over
Most of us have qualities about our skin that we’d like to change, and usually it’s more than one—we have fine lines in several areas, or acne scars, or a dull complexion. For many of our patients, the best “first step” toward glowing skin is a treatment that applies to the entire face and can address multiple issues at once. Chemical peels, Dermalinfusion® (the latest wave of microdermabrasion), and laser skin resurfacing are all great skincare multi-taskers.
Get the Devil Out of the Details
Too many brides have spent months on a bridal beauty regimen only to reach their wedding day and notice one detail that they’ve overlooked but suddenly can’t stop obsessing over. Make a list of all the cosmetic issues you’d like to address before your wedding, then look for a way to improve each one. For example, many brides find that Latisse® eyelash enhancement or eyelash tinting can give them the look they want for all those close-up photos of them gazing deeply into their new husband’s eyes.
Diet with Caution
Almost every bride has nightmares about not fitting into her dress—there’s something a bit terrifying about having a dress that’s custom fitted for you (weeks in advance) for one of the most important days in your life. But it the midst of watching the scale like a hawk, be careful not to under-eat. Nutrients like Vitamins A, B and C are vital for healthy skin, so stick with a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to give your body everything it needs without packing on last-minute pounds.
Don’t Neglect your Body Beauty
When we talk about a beauty regimen, usually we’re focusing on the face—after all, that’s the first thing we tend to notice when we look in the mirror. But unless your dress has long sleeves and a turtleneck, you’ll want to make sure to give some cosmetic attention to the areas that the dress will expose and accentuate. For example, treat yourself to laser hair removal to avoid the dreaded underarm five-o’clock shadow. Or, if you’ve fallen out of love with a tattoo that that’s front-and-center in your strapless dress, use your wedding as a reason to finally get laser tattoo removal.
Think Beyond the Wedding—to the Honeymoon
One of the best parts about spending months (or years) working toward your dream wedding is the honeymoon you get to spend relaxing on the beach after all that work is done. But feeling self-conscious in that cute swimsuit you bought for the occasion can really put a damper on the fun. Prepare yourself for lounging on the beach with confidence using treatments that can smooth cellulite or eliminate spider veins.
Put Your Stress to Bed
While getting ready for your wedding is one of the most exciting and optimistic times in your life, catering crises and decorating blunders can really pile on the stress. Not all wedding stress can be avoided, but it’s important to help yourself relax throughout the planning process. Not only is high-quality sleep necessary for radiant skin, but remember, the whole point of celebrating your wedding with family and friends is to have fun. If you have trouble relaxing on your own, leave it to the professionals by scheduling periodic massages leading up to the big day.
This may be the most important part of a successful pre-wedding beauty regimen: start early and plan well. Some beauty treatments (like laser hair removal) require several sessions for best results, so it can take a while to complete the full process. Other procedures (like chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing) involve some recovery time before the results are fully visible, while still others shouldn’t be administered too far in advance because the results could fade before your special day. Timing your beauty plan right can be tricky, so schedule a consultation with us sooner rather than later—we can help you decide which treatments will best meet your needs and get all your appointments on the books, so all you have to do is follow your pre- and post-procedure instructions and show up.
Looking your best for your big day may seem like a lot of work, but we have one more trick up our sleeve to help—we offer savings packages exclusively for brides-to-be (featuring combinations of must-have treatments and free skincare products), plus great cosmetic specials every month. At Laser Lights, we love helping our patients look and feel like the beauties they are, especially when it comes to their special day.

With spring in full swing, we’re quickly approaching the day that we set aside to show our appreciation for those who gave us the energy, love, and time: Mother’s Day. Many of us feel that in the midst of our busy day-to-day lives, we don’t always give our parents the time and gratitude we should, so understandably, it can be stressful to find a Mother’s Day gift that makes up for it. At Laser Lights Cosmetic Center, every day we see how much joy comes from feeling relaxed, beautiful, and taken care of, so we have a few gift ideas to get you started:
Pamper her. Everyone deserves to be pampered every once in a while, especially parents. This month, we’ve put together an exclusive savings package for Mother’s Day, which includes a customized facial and one hour of massage therapy. It’s a perfect opportunity to give the special mother in your life a chance to take a break from caring for her family and have a refreshing day of others caring for
Help her turn back the clock. The natural aging process can take a toll on our self-esteem when we look in the mirror and begin seeing the changes in our face. Fortunately, treatments for turning back the clock and restoring youthful beauty have come a long way. From minimally-invasive procedures like Botox® or dermal filler injections to laser treatments like laser skin resurfacing or spider vein removal treatments, you can give your mother the gift of feeling more beautiful in her own skin.
Let her choose. Wanting to help your mother feel refreshed and beautiful is one thing; knowing which treatment will be best for her is another. If you prefer to let her choose which beauty treatment will go the furthest in helping her feel more confident and refreshed this spring, try giving her a Laser Lights gift certificate. That way, she can peruse our menu of services and choose the procedure that best fits her goals, whether it be laser age spot removal, non-surgical skin tightening, or
It can be difficult to choose a material gift that shows someone how much they mean to you, especially when it comes to someone you’ve been buying gifts for for years. This Mother’s Day, try giving the special mother in your life the gift of beauty and confidence. You can even make a day of it by scheduling your appointments on the same day and adding a lunch date.

Feeling tense and stretched thin comes and goes for many busy people. Between family, friends, and social activities, it is easy to get wrapped up in the bustle and forget to prioritize relieving stress. Studies show that chronic stress increases cortisol levels, which damages skin’s ability to hold on to water and causes dryness, fine lines, and other undesirable skin conditions. While adequate sleep, consistent exercise, and meditation can all aid in relieving stress, Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center offers massages, facials, and stress-reducing products to ease tension and promote relaxation.
As many people would agree, when we feel confident about the way we look, we generally feel better. Unsightly razor bumps and ingrown hairs can prevent anyone from wanting to show skin. We offer laser hair removal for any part of the body as an effective treatment for removing unwanted hair and eliminating the stress of shaving, along with the stress it places on the skin. In addition to never seeing another cut, nick, or bump in the area of hair removal, laser hair removal can “shave” hours off of your beautifying routine.
Massage therapy is a customary way to ease bodily tension and anxiety. At Laser Lights, we offer Swedish, deep tissue, and Myofascial release massage types. Most regular massage patients report an increase in overall wellness and reduction in the frequency and/or severity of depression, stress, sore muscles, nerve pain, and headaches. After asking patients a series of questions to determine any sources of underlying muscular pain or stress, your chosen Laser Lights licensed massage therapist will begin treatment by using the provided information to suggest an appropriate massage type that suits your procedure goals.
Contrary to common belief, facials are not solely luxury treatments. Rather, they can help restore confidence and glowing skin while addressing problem areas of the face. Our staff of licensed estheticians performs an array of medicated and therapeutic facials. These customizable facials treat skin conditions such as acne, dry skin, and wrinkles. We also have dedicated facials for anti-aging, back and facial acne, men, and teens. Additionally, we offer one hour, relaxing European facials to remove dead skin, calm inflamed pores, and reduce redness associated with rosacea, allergies, or acne.
For at-home stress relief, we recommend Laser Lights’ Sage and Citrus moisturizer for a moisture boost with the added benefit of aromatherapy. The specially formulated crème contains anti-oxidants and vitamins A, C, and E to condition, tone, protect, and improve skin elasticity. For many patients, the efforts we make to reduce stress also reduce the signs of skin aging.
If you are interested in relieving stress with any of the above suggestions, please contact us today. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for more on the benefits of Laser Lights treatments.
