Evolving laser technology has opened up a whole new world when it comes to cosmetic concerns. It’s not that laser is new, but the technology has been refined, allowing us to target very specific problems, such as unwanted body hair, spider veins, wrinkles, and much more.
Dr. Tim Martin spent considerable time researching the laser options before settling on the Xeo system. Using varying wavelengths, we’re able to help our clients in Abilene, Texas, achieve a wide array of aesthetic solutions, all with this one simple system.
Here’s how our Xeo laser treatments can banish your unwanted body hair, wrinkles, and spider veins.
The hair where?
When it comes to body hair, the endless battle you wage with just a razor, tweezers, or wax can be an exhausting endeavor. With our Xeo laser, we can send the laser energy into the hair follicles in your skin and get rid of them once and for all. Your hair follicles absorb the laser energy as heat, which destroys them, allowing your body to flush them out naturally.
We can use this technology to tackle unwanted hair around your chin, arms, back, under your arms, and around your bikini area. In fact, we can use Xeo on hair almost anywhere on your body, except around your eyes.
Typically, it takes several treatments to successfully eradicate your unwanted hair. The reason for this is that your hair is never all out at the same time. While most of your hair is in the anagen stage, which means active growth, about 3% is in the transitional catagen stage, and 6-8% is in the telogen, or resting, phase.
By spacing out your treatments by several weeks, we’re able to ensure that we catch all of your hair as it comes out of its resting and transitional stages.
A wrinkle in time
Aging shows no mercy, and this is especially true in our skin. Over time, we face several forces that promote aging, starting with exposure to the elements. The sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays prematurely break down our skin cells, leaving them damaged and prone to wrinkles.
Add to this the fact that the structural proteins in your skin, chiefly collagen, and elastin, naturally begin to wane with each passing year. As your skin loses this valuable support, wrinkles begin to form and your skin sags.
With Xeo, we create a network of tiny micro-channels in your skin using laser energy. These tiny injuries spur tissue coagulation and prompt your body to respond with renewed collagen in order to rebuild the area. This deep tissue-targeting approach creates a stronger matrix of healthier skin that improves and lifts the overall surface area.
Along the same vein
Those tiny little veins that rise up to the surface of your skin, or spider veins, are also a common complaint among our clients. Spider, or facial, veins aren’t necessarily dangerous, but they can mottle your otherwise clear skin.
With our Xeo laser, we deliver its energy into these veins to shut them down and break them apart, all without harming the surface area. Once destroyed, your body flushes away the debris naturally through your lymphatic system.
This technology is also effective against brown spots, rosacea, vascular lesions, and freckles.
No matter your vascular or pigment issue, Xeo delivers the required laser energy to break up these blemishes, paving the way for clearer skin.
