Basking in the summer sunshine is part of life here on Cape Cod. The great outdoors calls to our collective senses, begging to be explored and enjoyed. Many even make their living on the water. But, at some point, all that time spent in the sun may begin to take its toll, in the form of sun spots, wrinkles, and other types of skin damage.
Forty years ago, having that “healthy tan” was all the rage. Today, we know how dangerous the sun’s UV rays can be, and we take precautionary measures to protect our skin. For many, however, decades of damage have already been done. Sun-damaged skin can appear aged, leathery, wrinkled and sagging. Nevertheless, help is available. And there’s no need to go over the bridge for the best in skin treatments.
Laser Aesthetics Cape Cod Internal Medicine in Hyannis has been treating clients for these issues and others for 11 years. Cheryl Heinzmann, a registered nurse, licensed esthetician and laser skin care specialist, says their treatments work, which keeps their patients coming back.
“Our patients (both men and women) want to take care of the damage caused by living in the sun on Cape Cod,” she says. “They want to look their best and have that healthy glow. We offer the best in anti-aging treatments, including Botox and dermal fillers, as well as laser treatments for sun spots, spider veins, laser hair removal for all skin types, skin tightening, and overall skin rejuvenation. We also offer Coolsculpting for non-invasive body contouring and fat reduction.”
Laser Aesthetics has just recently added the Clear & Brilliant laser to their repertoire. If you’re battling the effects aging can have on your skin, or trying to address it before the battle even begins, Clear & Brilliant may be right for you. With simple, gentle laser treatments, you can help prevent the visible signs of aging and address the overall dulling effects time and the environment can have on your skin.
A Clear & Brilliant laser treatment helps stimulate collagen production, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles and brightens your skin. It can leave your skin feeling smoother, give you a healthy glow, and it’s an ideal treatment for younger people who want to start taking care of their skin now. Routine treatments deliver lasting results.
Botox and dermal fillers are popular and effective at diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Botox can effectively treat forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet by relaxing your facial muscles. Botox has been in use for years, and the procedure has an exceptional safety record. Fillers are an injectable treatment option that is designed to decrease the deeper folds and wrinkles and can also add a volume, a subtle lift and contour to the face. Heinzmann is an expert injector and is very successful at treating her clients. She treats each client’s individual needs while maintaining a natural look.
The laser hair removal treatments from Laser Aesthetics allow you to make unwanted face and body hair a thing of the past. Their FDA-cleared laser systems can give patients permanent hair reduction, and can be used on all skin types, including tan and dark skin. In the past, people with tan or dark skin ran the risk of skin damage from hair removal treatments. That issue is now a thing of the past with today’s hair removal technology.
Feel as though you have a little too much muffin around the middle? Try Coolsculpting. This revolutionary, non-surgical body-contouring treatment literally freezes unwanted fat, which is then eliminated from the body naturally. There are no needles involved and no downtime afterwards. Each Coolsculpting procedure, on average, results in a 20 percent reduction in the treated area. The results can be seen after only one treatment. It is a safe and effective technique.
