Sun exposure is by far the most influential environmental factor affecting the aging of the skin and the leading cause of photodamage. Photodamage to the skin is caused by exposure to harmful ultraviolet light. It is most commonly a chronic condition that results in gradual changes in the skin caused by an accumulation of sun exposure over time. Acute forms of photodamage can be caused by sunburn.
Pigment producing cells in the skin (melanocytes) are stimulated to produce more pigment when exposed to ultraviolet rays, resulting in age-spots (also known as sun spots or solar lentigines). Age spots are associated with cumulative sun exposure. and mostly appear in areas consistently exposed to sunlight such as the back of the hands, forearms, neck, chest and face.
Acne is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the pilosebaceous unit that affects at least 85% of adolescents and young adults. Distribution of acne lesions is generally limited to areas with well-developed sebaceous glands including the face, back, chest and upper arms. Characteristics of acne include open comedones (blackheads), closed comedones (whiteheads), papules, pustules (inflamed pimples) and cysts.
Characteristics of Dry Skin
A thin epidermis, underactive sebaceous glands, lack of moisture, skin feels tight (especially after washing), skin appears to be dull, flaking of the skin, fine lines and wrinkles are evident, skin generally has fine pores, and skin can feel itchy.
Normal to Dry Skin
Normal to dry skin tends to look dull around the cheek, eye, and lip area. It can be exacerbated by hot, dry weather in the summer months in dry climates or by indoor heating systems during the dry winter months.
Normal to Oily Skin
Normal to oily skin tends to be glossy and oily to the touch, especially on the forehead, chin, nose or the “T” zone. The skin may become oily as the day goes on or during periods of stress.

REASONS WHY BOTOX/DYSPORT MIGHT BE THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR YOU
1) SAFE TREATMENT
Unlike other cosmetic procedures that can cause severe bruising or internal bleeding, botox/dysport treatments are far safer . Patients who have any form of Botox treatment will also have a far quicker recovery than those who opt for other forms of cosmetic procedures. Botox was first approved by the FDA in 1989, and to date, no fatalities or serious side effects have been reported in association with its use.
2) YOU LOOK YOUNGER
A few tiny injections can relax your muscles and create a soft happy effect to your face. This is the ideal treatment for people wanting to look a few years younger 🙂 The most common places on the face that are of concern are the dreaded frown lines making us look a lot angrier than we are. Have you every been told to ” smile more, you look angry” what a blow!!!. Also the crows feet and forehead. Eliminating these wrinkles can give you back the confidence you deserve, especially if back in the dating game and needing a little boost!
3) ELIMINATE EXCESSIVE SWEATING
Many people suffer from this embarrassing condition called ” hyperhidrosis”. This is excessive sweating in the armpits, hands or feet. It can be quite traumatic for those who suffer resulting in a huge loss of self esteem ” check out those sweat patches” a line commonly thrown around. Many clinicians have used Botox to treat this condition very successfully leading to very happy patients that do not longer mind the warmer weather.
4) REDUCE SORE MUCSLES AND HEADACHES
Patients who suffer from regular migraine attacks will know just how painful and debilitating they can be. A series of Botox injection treatments has been shown to reduce the occurrence of migraines substantially. Botox helps to relax the muscles that are responsible for the onset of these headaches, and is also said to assist with blocking the sensory nerves that send the pain signals through to the brain.
5) MORE CONVENIENT THAN PLASTIC SURGERY
Botox/Dysport treatments can be done in a lunch break with little to no downtime. This is especially beneficial for those who cannot take time out of their busy work/life schedules to be in hospital for days. A consultation is always necessary to see if botox/dysport is the right solution for you.

Do you feel that your skin is taking control of your appearance?
We all want to look as young as possible – and there are certain aspects our appearances that stand out more than others (whether we like it or not). In addition to being the body’s largest organ, our skin is one of the most delicate. With the passing of years, sun exposure, and scarring, our skin ends up communicating a message that we may not have signed off on.
If your skin is aging you, there are specific traits that are doing the majority of the work. Not liking what you see when you look in the mirror? Check out our guide to common signs of dermal aging, and corresponding treatments that will help resolve the problem.
Common Signs of Aging on the Skin
Remember that these signs of age can take hold anywhere on your body, and are commonly found on the face, hands, neck, and arms. While you may not be experiencing the problem in one area, it can still strike another.
Brown or red spots – The sun’s rays contain elements that trigger the production of melanin in the skin. This hyperpigmentation forms brown spots and patches on the skin, and can cluster in areas of common exposure. Fortunately, Total Body Laser Skin Care treatments offer gentle relief from these spots, with them flaking away within the weeks after treatment.
Fine lines and wrinkles – As time passes, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin. These connective tissues provide hydration and structure, and as the break down, fine to deep wrinkles form across our faces. Depending on the location of your lines, we may recommend Botox or Juvederm fillers as a solution.
Loose or sagging skin – In addition to forming wrinkles, losing collagen causes your skin to sag, and can create unwelcome folds on your face and beneath your neck. Our laser helps stimulate new collagen growth and we now offer KYBELLA which strikes at the areas that need more attention to sagging in your neck
Redness – Redness can strike anywhere on the body, and it communicates a lack of health and the passing of years. But if you’re feeling limited by skin redness, there are a variety of treatments that will help you renew vigor and even skin tone. Our PicoSure laser is especially effective, offering the results of laser skin resurfacing without the skin damage and extensive downtime.

FDA Approved Botox & Juvéderm
Botox and Juvéderm are popular non-surgical treatments that will create a more youthful appearance and restore your natural beauty. Have one of these procedures or combine BOTOX with cosmetic dermal filler Juvéderm to soften and smooth frown lines, mouth creases, forehead creases, and crow’s feet near the eyes.
+ Do you have a cabinet full of wrinkle creams?
+ Does the thought of aging gracefully seem like a cop out to you?
+ Do you wish you could turn the clock back a little?
+ Botox and filler injections can help you look younger in minutes.
Both can help temporarily eliminate lines and wrinkles giving your face an overall more youthful appearance. At Total Body Laser Skin Care, your treatments will be administered by a trained and certified medical professional, with the highest regard for your safety. The procedure is non-evasive, virtually painless and requires only minutes of your time. Each treatment includes a medical consultation where you and our medical provider will determine the overall goal of treatment, appropriate approach and cost to insure satisfaction with your procedure.
With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why BOTOX Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of women and their doctors. BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. BOTOX Cosmetic diminishes lines and wrinkles without plastic surgery or scars. The procedure is simple, non-invasive and can be performed in our office in only a few minutes leaving you with a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. BOTOX Cosmetic is expertly injected with a fine needle into very specific muscles or simply into the skin. No recuperation time is needed and you’ll notice the difference within days. BOTOX Cosmetic can also be used to reduce excessive sweating of the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet.
For those who do not respond well to doctor prescribed antiperspirants, BOTOX can be the solution to ruined clothes and embarrassment also. Injections need to be given approximately twice a year. BOTOX has been the number one non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the US since its FDA approval according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Juvéderm is a smooth gel filler that our doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
You work hard at everything else so indulge in a little instant gratification. The procedure is simple, non-invasive and results are instantaneous. Juvéderm is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle to instantly restore volume and erase “smile lines” or “parentheses” (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth) and wrinkles.
In addition to treating wrinkles, Juvéderm can improve the contour and plump up the cheeks and lips as well as filling in and reducing the look of scars. No recovery time is needed and the effects are longer lasting than any other dermal filler on the market. FDA approved studies have shown that Juvéderm is the first and only filler with results that can last up to a full year, although results may vary from client to client.
