Botox & Filler – Can You Derma-roll After Getting Them

Botox & Filler - Can You Derma-roll After Getting Them

Derma rolling is a procedure you can do at home to get rid primarily of fine lines and wrinkles but while it is pretty convenient and efficient the process doesn’t actually start or stop the moment you start rolling or the time you put down the device. 

What we mean to say is that you need to observe a few pre and post-treatment procedures for derma rolling to be effective and so your skin won’t suffer from any mishaps. 

One common question we receive is that if it’s alright to derma roll right after you’ve had certain procedures like Botox and filler. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s find out!

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox is this purified form of a bacteria obtained botulinum toxin. This otherwise deadly toxin in large amounts has been utilized when it comes to getting rid of wrinkles in the aesthetic or cosmetic industry. Botox is such a popular procedure that you see the effects of its day in and day out, especially with known celebrities. 

So, how does it really work? Well, Botox is used to block nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected in, and in turn, once these signals are effectively interrupted, they are frozen or paralyzed temporarily. This is where wrinkles are softened, reduced, or in some instances removed altogether. 

Botox works best on certain wrinkles that are the product of muscle movement or what you call dynamic wrinkles. Botox works best on the upper face area where you’ll have lines that have been caused by different facial expressions throughout the years. 

It’s important to take note though that Botox does not really work on fine lines caused by sagging and Botox is not a permanent treatment and needs to be done over and over again. 

What are fillers or what is commonly called dermal fillers? Well, dermal fillers are these substances that are injected into the surface of the skin for additional volume or fullness. Substances will vary and this procedure works for a variety of cosmetic needs ad enhancements. 

Derma rolling overview

All right, now that you’ve had your crash course on what Botox and dermal fillers are then we’ll have a little bit of review too about derma rolling. This will better help us understand the answer to our question later on. 

Derma rolling is essentially a process of using what you call these micro-needles about 0.2mm to 3.0mm in length to create tiny punctures in your skin to trigger it to making newer and healthier layers. This process eventually gets rid of fine lines and wrinkles and is something that anyone can do at home. 

After the process, your skin should be much more supple, firm, and elastic. Now, is it painful? Well, not really, anything below the needle length of 0.5mm is essentially pain-free but anything lengthier than that should be done by professionals

And yes, you may roll on multiple parts of your body and not just on your face. 

So, if you are someone who just underwent Botox or just got some dermal filler procedure done, can you derma roll right after?

Well, the answer is NO. It is not recommended at all. Not if you want to reverse the effects of the aforementioned procedure or worse risk damaging your skin. You see after derma rolling, your skin is quite delicate and sensitive and that you are not even allowed to put on makeup at all. 

The process may be pain-free or simple but if you just got treated with Botox or dermal fillers then it can be quite risky and dangerous. If you want your skin to respond better or achieve the best results after your treatments then be sure to derma roll after the recommended number of days by your specialist

Some other dos and don’ts after Botox

• After any Botox treatment is not advisable for you to apply any pressure at all to your skin or face. This is especially true in the areas where Botox was specifically applied. No massaging, applying makeup, or even rubbing on the applied areas. Needless to say, it’s a no-no for derma rolling. 

• Strenuous exercise should also be avoided at least for the next 24 hours. 

• Other facial procedures other than microneedling like microdermabrasion and chemical peels are to be avoided. No matter how gentle or mildly invasive said procedures are make sure to avoid them completely after a Botox treatment.

• After said treatment, you will also experience bruising. Your first instinct would be to go grab an over-the-counter pain medication but you need to avoid it as much as you can as these types of medicine will rather contribute to the bruising and delay healing. 

• Try to sleep on your back at least for the night after your Botox treatment and please, avoid getting one if you are pregnant.

Laser Hair Removal Benefits

Laser hair removal procedure is so in-demand nowadays that one might wonder as to why someone would want to undertake it, to begin with. Don’t we need hair to insulate our bodies? Well, for some it’s a beauty regimen but really experts recommend it for its more benefits than meets the eye.  

So, we bet that you are curious about it too knowing that you’ve stumbled upon our little blog article. What is full body laser hair removal and what are its benefits? Why do so many people (you may know) avail of it? Let’s find out!

Laser Hair Removal Overview

Laser hair removal is arguably the most popular non-surgical procedure in the aesthetic industry. The main reason for this is that it’s very effective. Its effectiveness is due to the fact that the procedure’s results are not something that you as a client can affect. 

A better understanding of this is if you take a look at some non-surgical weight loss procedures. Those can be performed successfully but if you don’t go by your diet plan the results would be far from what you might have expected. 

When it comes to laser hair removal, the results are within the hands of the specialist who’s going to work on you and at the same time, the devices they use and the methodologies they follow. 

In essence, laser hair removal is the procedure where your hair follicles are exposed to pulses or laser light to destroy them essentially removing them. For the past decade or so it has been the go-to hair removal procedure as opposed to traditional ones. It has been commercially available since the 90s but we can say that it only took off in the past decade with the advancement of technologies used for it. 

What deters people from getting a full body laser hair removal done?

Perhaps the biggest reason why some would not undergo laser hair removal is because of the notion that it can be painful. And yes, it can be painful but if you find the right clinic and experts then it shouldn’t be. 

If the procedure is painful then most likely you went to someone or a place where they use cheaper devices and still employ the old techniques. If you are willing to pay just for a little bit more for laser hair removal then you will find procedures that are not painful at all. 

With the advent of newer laser hair removal devices, the process is practically pain-free. Well, of course, people tolerate pain differently so you still need to take that into consideration. But, generally, it should not be as painful as it used to be.

This is because of the fact that modern devices do not use heat aggressively as the old ones do anymore and so it breaks down your hair follicles efficiently and virtually pain-free. If done in a much more methodical manner then you should be all right. 

Benefits of laser hair removal

• No more ingrown hair. After waxing, shaving, or epilating, in-grown hair comes next. And, that can prove to be a nightmare for a lot of people. If you undergo laser hair removal then you won’t have to suffer from ingrown hair anymore. The hair is removed right into the roots so it’s a much more efficient process. Also, say goodbye to razor bruises and burns from waxing. Pretty neat, huh? 

• Your skin will be softer than it used to be. No more prickly stubble patches only softer skin throughout after the procedure. The process is so thorough that you won’t have any stray hairs anywhere. What’s more, is that when your hair grows back that it should be thinner and softer than usual. Thick hair leaves your skin rough and that’s not good.

• No harmful side effects. Laser hair removal is popular for a lot of reasons and one of them is that because you won’t experience any skin problems like scars or irritation afterwards. No danger of cutting or bruising and that’s always desirable. It’s basically a no-mess procedure that can be carried out throughout your body

• The results are long-lasting. Laser hair removal ensures that your skin and hair if it grows back will be better. Hair, after your procedure, should not grow back after months. It’s like you are in the process of getting rid of hair all over your body for good. 

• It’s not restrictive. Unlike waxing, you are allowed to shave your hair early on as it grows if in some instances you really need to or want to. In waxing, you need to wait for hair to grow a certain length before you can shave but with laser hair removal, you can do so anytime. Plus, it’s just a faster and more efficient process and if done right by the right people, all these benefits you will have.

The thicker the hair and the darker its colour the more effective the procedure would be. Brazilian laser hair removal is first and foremost hygienic, effective, and at the same time, it creates long-lasting results. 

Advantages of Brazilian Laser Hair Removal 

So, what are the advantages of undergoing a Brazilian laser hair removal procedure? 

• You say goodbye to shaving and waxing! Ain’t that a major benefit, right? You know how annoying shaving and waxing your pubic area can be and so if you can do away with these habits then the better. Plus, you get all sorts of skin irritations or side effects with shaving and waxing like cuts, bruises, and burns. So, sayonara shaving and waxing should you decide to get on the Brazilian laser hair removal bandwagon.

• Brazilian laser hair removal ensures long lasting results and so you won’t have to worry about anything growing in your pubic area for perhaps a very long while. 

• No side effects whatsoever. As mentioned, you won’t have to deal with any cuts, bruises, or burns in this process, although it’s using some amount of heat, it’s not as aggressive as long as the right device is used (more on that later). Also, no skin irritation or other skin problems too right after treatment.

Please do take note that the innermost area of your lips right at the saggy part cannot be subject to this treatment. Any legitimate clinics or specialists would tell you that and if someone tells you otherwise then you need to get out of that facility right away as that screams dangers and questions their credibility. That delicate and sensitive area cannot be subject to a Brazilian laser hair removal procedure, we repeat.

And more on this subject, the reason why you can’t get that area treated is that it’s just too delicate that it can’t take the heat and from that, a lot of potential infections or complications can happen and you can only imagine how that can turn out for you. 

Tips When Undergoing Brazilian Laser Hair Removal

• Avoid plucking or waxing your bikini area about 6 weeks before your planned treatment. You may shave the treatment area in whatever style you desire 24 hours before your hair removal. This is also part of the process where you tell your specialist which areas to work on and which part to leave out.

• Don’t worry because before the treatment a cooling method will be implemented to your bikini area so you’ll be nice and cool throughout. It’s not as painful as it sounds depending on the device or expertise of the one working on you. 

• Swelling is completely normal after the procedure, don’t worry about it and just use Aloe Vera gel and you should be all right. Your medical practitioner will give you full instructions for aftercare.

Benefits of Full Body Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal for Men

The demand for laser hair removal has grown bigger than ever. Both men and women are now considering this treatment because of its impressive results. In fact, 40% of Havana Skin Clinic’s clientele are men. Even hunks go to our clinic to get their hair removed. It isn’t surprising when  you consider that men have more hair than women. Also, laser hair removal will help men save a huge chunk of time, and eliminates the hassle of frequent shaving. Because men have more hair, they are more prone to skin damage, and skin conditions such as folliculitis barbae or ingrown hair. Laser hair removal can really do wonders for men. To give you a clearer view on how laser hair removal works, here’s how it goes:

First stage of laser hair removal

inline_238_http://havanaskinclinic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/bigstock-132561494-300x200.jpg

Generally, males do more treatments than women. It’s due to man’s biological nature that has to do with their androgen hormones, and testosterone. There is no exact number of treatments for men’s hair removal since it all depends on the person’s hair cycles. The laser works by killing hairs that are only in the active stage, which is the first stage of hair growth where hair is hatched down at the base of the hair shaft.

The laser travels down to hair that is absorbed at the base. Then, it will be transferred to the stem cells that will cause its death. The stem cells may stimulate the growth of new hairs again. However, when the laser targets the stem cells for the second time, the process of hair growth will not happen again. This results in permanent hair loss.

Second stage of laser hair removal

The treatment damages the hair during the second stage of hair removal. This stage causes slower hair growth and thinner strands of hair. The more treatment the patient receives, the thinner his hair will become and the frequency for shaving will be less.

Third stage of laser hair removal

inline_687_http://havanaskinclinic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/bigstock-Armpit-Laser-Epilation-At-Beau-183856411-300x200.jpgThe hair in stage 3 is already close to shedding away from the surface of the skin. At this stage, the hair is thinner and less, which makes it difficult for the laser to target and destroy the remaining hairs. Therefore, to increase the efficiency of the treatment, the patient will have to shave the area, so the hair comes back to its first stage of growth. The treatment will be continued until a significant reduction of hair takes place in the area. The goal is to see at least 80% of hair loss in the targeted area. Until then the intervals for each treatment will be close to each other for faster and more satisfying results.

Final stage

The final stage involves maintaining the results that have been achieved. Depending on the patient, the doctor may suggest fewer sessions with longer intervals. It will be up to the patient if he decides to continue with the treatment. Typically, the doctors will assess the patient, and will inform him if the desired hair loss has been achieved.

 

 

 

 

How to prepare for laser hair removal

It’s now possible to permanently remove those annoying fuzz. With laser hair removal, you can now achieve a smooth, hair-free skin for good! This treatment is currently the most advanced, and most sought-after procedure for hair removal. Using smart technologies, you can now avoid having prickly stubble. However, though laser hair removal is an efficient and safe procedure, patients must still perform steps to assure the treatment’s success. Here’s a few:

Do not apply any cosmetics on the area before the treatment

inline_446_http://havanaskinclinic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/bigstock-tender-7142900-300x195.jpgThe skin must be clean prior to the treatment. It must be free from any dirt or cosmetics like deodorant, lotion, creams, etc. Such impurities may affect the procedure and the condition of the skin. It’s necessary to keep the skin clean when undergoing the procedure, as it may cause skin irritations or damages. It’s necessary to keep the area clean as it may also damage the equipment used for laser hair removal.

Shave the area before the treatment

The skin must be shaved 24 hours before the treatment. Laser hair removal works using an energy that is absorbed beneath the skin. Not shaving the area prior to the procedure may decrease the efficiency of the procedure since the laser must penetrate the skin. It’s also important to shave the skin 24 hours before the treatment. Shaving the area too closely to the time of treatment may result in skin irritations. On the other hand, shaving the area 2 or 3 days prior the treatment may result in a skin with too much hair. Thus, the best time to shave the area is one day before the treatment.

Do not use poor shaving equipment

It’s highly suggested to use high quality shaving equipment when removing hair before the treatment. The skin must be completely shaved before the treatment. The area must also be in good condition where it has no cuts or lacerations. The best way to assure this is to use a good quality razor such as Mac 3. Good quality razors remove hair in fewer motions, preventing cuts.

Do not wax or pluck the area before the treatment

inline_361_http://havanaskinclinic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/bigstock-Woman-Showing-Tweezers-For-Eye-183769054-200x300.jpgPatients who will undergo laser hair removal must never pluck or wax the area prior to the treatment. In fact, these patients must shave the skin 3 days before the treatment, and shave the area again 24-hours prior the procedure. Patients who remove hair by pulling it from the roots may have fewer hairs on the surface of the skin. Thus, the laser may not efficiently target the hair follicles. Especially for areas that are difficult to shave, like the bikini area, the skin must be shaved 3 days and 24 hours before the procedure to avoid skin damages, irritation, and pain during the treatment. Shaving the areas before the laser hair removal also helps in the success of the procedure.

Q) If you have fair hair, can you have laser hair removal?

A)Yes of course, the pigment in the hair will absorb the energy. We also use the LightSheer DUET which is able to treat any skin type and hair colour.

Q) How many treatments do you need to have of laser hair removal?

A)No one can answer this as to destroy the hair, we need to catch it at the active stage of growth so it all depends on what stage of growth your hair is at each treatment. A lot of clients will find patches of hair left half way through the treatment meaning that they were at the 2nd or 3rd stage of growth during the other treatments.

Q) What is the difference between the lasers at Havana Skin Clinic uses compared to everybody else?

A)We use a diode laser called the LightSheer DUET by Lumenis which works by using a vacuum technology meaning that it can pull the hair follicle closer to the laser and suppress your nerve endings meaning that the treatment is more effective and less painful. With this machine, we can treat up to a skin type 6.

Q)What do I have to do for pre appointment prep?

A)You will need to book a consultation to ensure that you can have laser hair removal. This will involve a patch test and also some questions covering medical history and your most recent sun exposure.

Due to the advanced technology we use here at Havana Skin Clinic, we can treat you for laser hair removal if your last sun exposure was no less than 28 days. Older technology has to wait for the melanin to be completely gone from the skin meaning you could be waiting for anything up to 6 months.
