Laser Treatments

It seems like the summer flew by and we are heading into fall! (The best season to start laser treatments!)

With the many curveballs this year has thrown, you may have found yourself spending more time outside, in the lovely sun this summer! CO implemented a Safer-At-Home or in the Great Vast Outdoors model this summer, allowing us to resume our normal treatments at our locations AND inviting everyone to get outside and enjoy all that the Colorado wilderness has to offer.

Spending time in the sun is helpful in maintaining healthy levels of necessary vitamins, but too much sun with no proper protection can damage our skin speeding up the aging process. Luckily, our wide variety of laser treatments can help you get your skin looking flawless in no time.

Laser treatments offer skin rejuvenation at a fraction of the time and the cost to traditional cosmetic skin rejuvenation methods. Laser treatments allow for little to no downtime, and little to no discomfort.

(Check out this article covering the basics of laser skin rejuvenation!)

Laser treatments can be used to reduce wrinkles, acne scarring, balance skin tone, and even tighten skin. Fall is the BEST time of year to receive laser treatments since we begin spending more time indoors and the days start to get shorter.

The skin after laser treatments such as laser hair removal or an IPL Photofacial, is super sensitive to sunlight! No matter what time of year, be sure to protect the skin with an SPF of at least 45 to protect your skin and keep it looking great after treatments! Reverse summer sun damage using our vairety of laser treatments.

Venus Viva

Venus Viva is an advanced, nonsurgical solution for skin rejuvenation that helps to improve the overall texture of your skin. It combines NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and SmartScan™ technology to help you achieve smoother, healthier skin by reducing signs of skin damage, including scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, wrinkles, rosacea, and any other skin conditions that affect your skin’s texture. Venus Viva is a fully customizable treatment and is the newest FDA-cleared procedure for skin resurfacing.

 

IPL Photofacial

IPL or intense pulsed light is an advanced, noninvasive photo skin rejuvenation breakthrough treatment that repairs skin damage without disruption of the surface of your skin. IPL produces skin that looks younger and healthier. It can treat a wide variety of facial imperfections safely and effectively, including broken capillaries, skin discoloration, age spots, freckles, sun damage, mottled, pigmentation, and rosacea. It also helps improve enlarged pores and dull complexions for smoother, revitalized skin. Your skin will feel tighter and looks firmer. The IPL treatment is most effective on your face, neck, chest, and hands.

 

Diamond Polar Skin Tightening

Venus Diamond Polar™ uses pulsed electromagnetic fields to increase oxygen, nutrients, and blood to your skin, giving it an immediate, long-lasting glow. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction occur because the radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, thereby stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This restorative response causes the formation of new collagen, along with the increased production of fibroblasts and new elastin fibers. The active collagen in your skin contracts, producing a tighter appearance, along with the softening of wrinkles and frown lines.

Venus Viva- Laser Resurfacing

What is a Venus Viva?

Venus Viva is an FDA- cleared procedure for skin resurfacing that helps to improve the overall texture of your skin. Venus Viva is an advanced non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing that requires minimal downtime and is considered the best skin resurfacing treatment you can get.

Approved in 2015, the Venus Viva fills the gap in the medical spa industry of those wanting the effects of full skin resurfacing treatments but aren’t ready to commit to the downtime or the price of other services.

The Venus Viva treatments combines NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and SmartScan technology to deliver results through a skin heating process. This process offers minimal discomfort to the skin and helps you achieve smoother, healthier skin reducing signs of skin damage, including scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, wrinkles, rosacea, and any other skin conditions that affect your skin’s texture and appearance. The Venus Viva is a fully customizable treatment and is one of the newest, breakthrough treatments approved for skin resurfacing.  

The NanoFractional RF penetrates through the epidermis (first layer of skin), and the energy reaches the dermis generating heat and production of elastin and collagen to promote tissue remodeling. The Venus Viva allows the aesthetician to control how much energy and frequency is being applied to each area making it suitable for all skin types and locations, except the eyelids and lips. Each pulse from the wand administers over 160 punctures to the skin allowing the collagen and elastin to rise to the surface layer. 

To start, you will be given information over the pre and post care recommendations for receiving a Venus Viva treatment as well as the Fitzpatrick Skin Type test to determine the level of treatment you will receive. The Fitzpatrick Skin Type test is incredibly important for your aesthetician to be sure that they are adequately treating your skin where it is at to achieve the best results. 

It is recommended that a minimum of three treatments are done to achieve the best results. To get started book a consultation with one of our expert aestheticians who will be able to customize the treatment exactly to your needs.

 

A Blogger’s Experience with the Venus Viva: 

For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Megan Garcia and I am the blogger for Lash and Company HQ.

I have had the honor of working with Lash and Company for almost six months and I have fallen in love with beauty in a way that I never thought was possible. 

As someone who has struggled with numerous skin issues, beauty was never something that I took super seriously because I thought it wasn’t for me. I have been going to dermatologists for years and years to try and get my skin concerns under control to no resolve. Acne has always been one of my biggest concerns, as well as discoloration, uneven texture, and more. 

At the dermatologist, they always would try to solve my skin issues with a topical cream or a pill that would maybe temporarily help the situation, but nothing was ever effective long term. I had finally come to terms with the fact that smooth and acne-free skin just wasn’t for me. 

This kept me from approaching beauty and beauty treatments because I never thought that they were for me or that they could potentially help solve my skin issues. The words medical spa made me nervous and I felt like what they had to offer was not suitable for my skin.

The Venus Viva treatment is something that I wish I would have discovered or known about years and years ago. 

I went in for a consultation and the staff at Lash and Company was amazing at listening to my concerns and also pointing out issues I had written off as “normal” in my skin. They comforted me about the process, made sure I was informed and educated about every step, and equipped for after care.

My first treatment gave AMAZING results. When I saw my mom after the treatment, she commented on how amazing my skin looked and asked what I had did to make it glow. 

 

BEFORE THE FIRST TREATMENT

AFTER FIRST TREATMENT 

 

The second treatment I received gave even more phenomenal results making my skin look even, and even the most stubborn spots of acne disappear. I have not had skin that has looked this good since before I entered puberty.

Throughout the entire process, my aesthetician, Krysta, made sure that I was completely comfortable with all the steps she was taking and assured me that what I was experiencing after the treatment was normal. My skin looked like I had gotten a slight sun burn and she helped me understand WHY that was and how it was going to be promoting the production of elastin and collagen in my skin. Krysta even texted me a couple days after each treatment to ensure that I was still doing okay and that my skin was responding to the treatment well. 

I have never been one to advocate or WANT to have high-quality medical grade spa treatments, but I have since changed my tune. 

Going to a medical spa to receive such high-quality skin treatments has been one of the most life changing experiences I have had to date. I only wish that I would have started sooner.

This is the most confident and amazing I have felt in my skin in the longest time, and I have the entire staff at Lash and Company to thank. 

Medical spa treatments should be and can be available to everyone, and that is a huge reason I love Lash and Company. They are so dedicated to ensuring that these treatments are available and accessible to everyone to truly create beauty, simplified.

 

Below you will find a progress picture of my skin throughout the process of all 3 treatments!

Beauty simplified is unique to you. Let’s define what it means for you.

What makes Lash and Company services so unique and awesome?

What makes Lash and Company services so unique and awesome?

I worked as a make-up artist and esthetician for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics while I was in college. I was inspired by Bobbi’s easy approach to make up that makes us feel great in our own skin. I loved that she catered to women (and men) that wanted to look and feel great day to day and not just for a night on the town. I also felt incredibly inspired by the fact that she considered herself a simple beauty instead of a sultry, fashion diva. We can achieve the same great look with zero make-up. Talk about easy!

I spent years in the esthetic industry observing the innovation of beauty services. Gone are the days of using concealer to perfect the skin or layering mascara on frumpy eyelashes. There are treatments, services and skincare available today that could essentially eliminate the need for make-up if you so choose.

On a regular basis I meet people that haven’t even heard of the services we offer. Whether it’s microblading for perfect eyebrows that won’t wash away in the shower, eyelashes that lift, open and define the eye even on a sick day at home, or Botox that keeps your forehead worry free on the sleepless nights.

I hope to accomplish two things with Lash and Company.

  1. I hope to educate women (and men) that these services exist and are easily available to them.
  2. I hope to simplify the beauty experience. I get overwhelmed with the selection of services and products in the industry and I have worked in it all of my adult life, so I can only imagine what it is like to hear about “blading” this and “needling” that. I hope to help us all navigate through the greatness this industry has to offer.

Here is my top two favorite things about Lash and Company Services:

  • Semi Permanent: All of Lash and Company services are intended to last. While there is the appointment time needed to maintain it is few and far between the time it saves each and every day!

Here is a list of the maintenance schedule in a perfect world:

  • Botox/ Dysport – 30 minute appointment every 3-4 months
  • Dermal Filler – 1 hour appointment 1 time a year
  • Skin Rejuvenation – If you are correcting existing damage 1 hour appointment every or every other month. If you are maintaining flawless skin 1 hour appointment every 6 months.
  • Microblading – One 2 hour appointment, one 1 hour follow up appointment and a touch up every 2-3 years.
  • Eyelash Extensions – One 1 hour appointment every 2-4 weeks
  • Waxing – 15 minute appointment 1 time a month
  • Airbrush Tanning – 15 minute appointment 1-2 times a month

If you committed 2-3 hours a month to yourself you could achieve make-up free perfection! If you spend 15 minutes a day on your make-up, you are spending 7.5 hours a month on applying make-up to look and feel half as good as you would if you let us assist!

Result Oriented: I value time above all other things in life. I have three small children, an incredible husband, and this awesome business, I want to savor every moment that I can with each of them! I don’t want to waste my time on services that don’t deliver.

Now that doesn’t mean that a consultation isn’t necessary or that it will only take one appointment to erase years of damage. It means that with consistency we can achieve remarkable results.

I love when I meet people that think the med spa experience is going to be slippers and champagne. No, these are real women that need real results quickly and would rather drink champagne looking fabulous with the people they enjoy than with a needle to their forehead.

Thanks for taking the time to read a little more about Lash and Company!
