Acne scars affect millions of people and can be a source for a lot of frustration for teenagers and adults alike. Acne is something we all have to deal with during our teenage years, and sometimes through adulthood. Acne scars are caused by the inflammatory swelling of follicles in the dermis, which rupture and leave an indentation resulting in a scar.

There are varying treatments for this, from chemical peels to topical creams, and laser treatments. Fraxel is a non-ablative soft laser treatment that can be used on the face. Fraxel is mainly known for its use as an anti-aging treatment, but the laser is used to smooth skin and improve tone and texture.

Instead of one solid laser beam, the Fraxel laser is separated into multiple small segmented beams that can treat many areas in the same region at once. This is well suited for the treatment of acne scars as they usually occur in clusters on the face. The mini laser beams can treat these specific areas without affecting the surrounding areas.

The benefit of using this treatment is that it works to regenerate the collagen that is missing by penetrating and stimulating the underlying tissue. The procedure is done in the office of your cosmetic doctor and takes anywhere from 15 minutes up to a half hour. There is minimal discomfort involved and no downtime. You can go back to your regular daily activities as soon as you wish.

Finding the right treatment for your scars can only be determined by consultation with your dermatologist and cosmetic doctor. Fraxel offers an easy way to give you the skin that you want. Using topical treatments can also be a great supplement to the laser treatment, as it will continue to create a smoother skin tone and texture.

Many people also swear by all natural ingredients like cucumber masks, using olive oil, honey, and tomatoes to sooth inflammation and swelling. Of course there is no data to cite regarding these techniques, but it certainly can't hurt to use them as a supplemental as well. Natural cosmetic creams are a widely popular method to treat skin conditions these days, so there may be some real value in it. The only way to know for sure is to try it for yourself.

Fraxel laser treatments are a guaranteed method for improving your skin. If your acne scars are a serious issue for you, it is best to get a consultation and investigate the benefits of this laser skin treatment. Any other methods you choose to try might be better used as an addition to the laser.

Cellulite is a condition whereby fat cells rupture in the layers of the skin. This results in ugly dimples on the skin surface. There are millions of people around the world who are affected by this condition and most of them are women. When cellulite appears on the skin, people tend to lose confidence as well as self esteem. Cellulite will mostly appear on thighs, buttocks and hips. There are several reasons that have been associated with the cause of cellulite among them poor diets and genes. Although this condition in itself does not put your health at risk, it would be appropriate to treat them so that you can feel normal again.

Although there are a number of methods that are used in cellulite treatment, most of them will just provide a temporary solution and the condition will recur after a short period of time. We are going to look at two cosmetic cellulite treatment options that will give you a permanent solution.

Laser Lipo Wand

This kind of treatment is characterized by permanent results, less invasive and quick recovery. After undergoing through this procedure, it will take you 3 months to achieve the desired results. In this treatment option, a specialized beam of light is directed on the affected region where it facilitates the melting down of fats that cause cellulite. The laser will also play a crucial role in strengthening the skin tissues thus preventing further rupturing of fat cells on these tissues.

It is important to note that cellulite does not result from a fat problem but rather, it emanates from a weak structure in the skin tissues. Laser Lipo wand helps to stimulate the production of collagen which consequently leads to thickening of skin and also makes it more elastic. by targeting the problem from its root cause, this methods becomes very effective in providing a permanent solution to cellulite condition.

Magnetic pulse treatment

During this kind of cellulite treatment, one will undergo around 10 no invasive treatments. In most circumstances, this non-surgical cellulite treatment will only lead to a small decrease in the cellulite levels. For it to be effective, one will have to undergo the treatment after treatment. This will not only waste your time but there is likelihood that you will get bored along the way and give up the fight against cellulite.

It is apparent that Laser liposuction is the best treatment for cellulite. The main reasons why most other cellulite treatment options fail is because they target on the skin rather than on the actual cause of the condition. If you go a cosmetic shop, you will learn that there are just so many products that have been dedicated for this purpose including creams, lotions and pills.

The cost of cellulite treatment will vary from one person to the other depending on their overall situation and also what they expect from the treatment. The cost will also vary depending on the doctor you visit. However, you should expect to pay about $3,000 for a Laser Liposuction wand treatment.
