Aesthetics Q & A

What are some common aesthetics procedures that do not require surgery?

As you get older, sun damage, poor diet, stress, and smoking make your skin look dull and tired. You naturally lose collagen and elastin, which causes fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. Even if you have a daily at-home skin care routine, creams and serums don’t always give you the results you want to see.

The medical team at Lori Scott Family Care offers a range of nonsurgical aesthetic procedures that help you turn back the hands of time and address trouble areas. Some of their popular offerings include:

  • Injectables like BOTOXⓇ and JuvédermⓇ
  • Body contouring with TempSure™ by CynoSure
  • Facials
  • Laser hair removal
  • Laser vein therapy
  • Chemical peels
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Dermal fillers
  • Laser lipo

Dr. Scott meets with you to assess your skin and evaluate your needs. She guides and educates you so you know which aesthetic procedure is best for your needs and skin type.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses concentrated pulses of light to impede the growth of hair from the follicle. Over the course of three to six sessions, the light energy destroys the follicle so that hair can’t grow from it anymore.

The procedure is noninvasive and requires no downtime. It doesn’t hurt, but some men and women say the laser feels like a rubber band snapping on their skin. In general, most people tolerate it well.

The ideal places for laser hair removal are your legs, underarms, bikini, and face. It’s a popular alternative to shaving every day because it saves time, leaves your skin soft and smooth, and helps you eliminate cuts, scrapes, nicks, and bumps caused by shaving.

What is body contouring?

Body contouring uses laser technology to expel fat and reshape your body. It’s typically used in areas where you have pockets of diet-resistant fat that just won’t budge.

Body contouring lasers target your underlying fat cells. The light passes comfortably through your skin and heats and destroys your fat cells. Your lymphatic system flushes the fat cells away as they die off over time.

If you’re ready to improve your appearance in a spa-like setting under medical supervision, trust the aesthetics team at Lori Scott Family Care. Call the office to schedule a consultation, or use the online scheduler to book now.
