How can you tell the seasons are changing? Just take a look at your skin! Our skin is the largest organ we have, and it is affected by both internal and external changes—which is why Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care offers the best treatments and procedures for all of your skin conditions. As we move into cooler weather, you might notice your skin and body are responding (and not necessarily in the way you would prefer). Here are our top aesthetician services recommended for autumn (and beyond):

Thermage FLX for skin tightening.

Many people think getting that “summer body” means fat reduction and perhaps muscle toning. However, anyone who has lost weight knows that skin laxity is a common problem. For years, the only way to fix loose skin was with surgery, but now there is Thermage FLX. This non-invasive treatment can be used virtually anywhere on the face and body, working via collagen induction therapy from the inside out. Most clients require just one treatment for maximum results and there is no pain, needles, or downtime. If you’re ready to get tight and right for autumn, this is the treatment for you.

CoolSculpting for targeted body sculpting.

CoolSculpting is the original non-invasive body sculpting treatment that really works. The treatment has been around for decades, but is always improving. Today, you can “freeze away fat” just about everywhere you want, from popular larger areas like the stomach and flanks to small areas such as below the chin. CoolSculpting targets small areas of unwanted fat and externally treats the area with precise chilly temperatures. This “kills” the fat cells, which the body naturally absorbs and expels in the months following the treatment. Most patients need 4 – 6 cycles per site for the best results. Initial results start to show about one month after the first cycle, with full results six months later.

Emsculpt for muscle toning and building.

One of the most challenging parts of getting fit is building strong, toned muscles. Emsculpt gives you leverage with a non-invasive treatment that forces targeted muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes per treatment site. These types of contractions are identical to what your muscles do when “strained” during weight lifting or other such activities. It isn’t a replacement for strength training, but complements it. Emsculpt can help you bust through plateaus, take your fitness to the next level, or establish a healthy foundation for those starting or restarting strength training. Most clients need 4 – 6 initial sessions spaced about 30 days apart, with a maintenance sessions scheduled every six months.

Qwo to dissolve cellulite for up to two years.

Qwo is the first FDA-approved injectable to treat cellulite in the buttocks of women. Cellulite is caused by fibrous connective bands right below the skin’s surface where fat “squeezes” through. It can happen to anyone of any size, but is most common in women. The buttocks are one of the most cellulite-rich areas. Qwo requires three injections spaced three weeks apart. This minimally-invasive procedure dissolves these bands for up to 24 months. However, keep in mind that no cellulite treatment (even surgery) lasts forever, as those bands will reform. Many people like to maintain results by getting Qwo injections again after two years.

Lasers for serious skin rejuvenation.

We are home to one of the largest laser suites in the area, ranging from gentle options like Clear + Brilliant (a favorite for pre-juvenation) to more aggressive lasers like CO2. Whether you want to undo sun damage, minimize lines and wrinkle, improve laxity, get rid of unwanted tattoos or hair, or simply make your skin as clear, youthful, and radiant as possible, we have the right laser for you. Many of our lasers are suitable for all skin tones and types, such as the Halo laser and broadband light (BBL) therapy. Mixing and matching lasers can also be a great approach for many clients.
