Laser hair removal is an effective method for permanently reducing unwanted hair. Shaving in the bath or shower daily can be time-laser hair removalconsuming, and unwanted hair often begins growing back within a day. Shaving can also irritate the skin. Waxing is another option, with longer lasting results than shaving, but it can be painful and cause skin irritation, as well. Laser hair removal is a quick and effective method for revealing smoother skin by permanently removing unwanted hair. At For a New You, Dr. Barbara Preussner and her staff provide laser hair removal in Holliston, MA.

Laser Hair Removal

In Holliston, laser hair removal can be used for removing unwanted hair all over the body, including the face, underarms, bikini line, arms, and legs. Laser hair removal is performed using a gentle light beam that is carefully waved across the skin in the desired area. Melanin in the hair follicles of the skin absorbs light energy from the laser. The light energy damages the hair follicle so that it cannot generate new hair growth.

Since hair grows in cycles, several laser hair removal treatments might be necessary to completely remove all unwanted hair in a particular area. Most patients achieve the desired results between three to six treatment sessions. The number of treatment sessions needed often depends on your hair texture, hair color, and skin type. Hair removal is quicker on some hair textures and skin types, and can take longer with others. Laser hair removal works on all skin types and is an effective method for removing unwanted hair safely without damaging the surrounding skin.

Laser hair removal is a safe method for permanently removing unwanted hair and achieving smoother skin. Save time and avoid the hassle and irritation of other hair removal methods, such as shaving and waxing. For laser hair removal in Holliston, MA, schedule an appointment with Dr. Preussner by calling For a New You at (508) 429-1006.

Have you heard of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in Holliston, MA? If not, you should look into it, as this aesthetic treatment transforms two platelet rich plasma therapybothersome problems from our personal appearance: skin wrinkling and hair loss. If you're approaching 50, or you're already there or beyond, then Dr. Barbara Preussner has an advanced, yet simple solution. Here are the details on Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy and how it could erase years off your face, neck and chest and also restore your hair to youthful fullness.

For your face

We all experience fine facial lines and areas on our necks and upper chest that are bothersome and dull-looking. Age factors into the problem, but frankly, so does sun exposure, and while applying moisturizers and sunscreen is very beneficial, these at-home treatments can't do it all.

So, Dr. Preussner investigated and began offering Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in Holliston at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser. Offered as a 15 to 30-minute in-office service, PRPT uses the patient's own blood platelets prepared as an injectable serum treatment. These platelets actually re-activate the body's own collagen, the natural substance our bodies produce to keep the skin supple and elastic.

Dr. Preussner uses a fine needle to inject the serum in problem areas of the skin, and patients see a noticeable improvement almost immediately. Typically, the doctor recommends three treatments at three-week intervals, and smoothing results last six months or even longer. Dr. Preussner also uses the treatments for acne scarring and stretch marks from weight loss or childbirth.

For your hair

No man or woman wants to see their hairlines recede or their once full heads of hair thin. However, many people experience this problem, particularly after 50. In fact, the Cleveland Clinic notes that 50 million men and 30 million women have noticeable hair loss.

Fortunately, Dr. Preussner has mastered the art of injectable Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as it applies to hair loss. PRPT works to stimulate new hair growth in follicles that have gone inactive. This easy, in-office process requires no special preparation, and most people qualify for it. Best of all, with just one treatment, up to 30 percent of hair follicles restart and regrow hair quickly. A word of caution, however--PRPT works best with hair loss of under five years. Longstanding hair loss does not respond well to PRPT.

Look good, and feel amazing

You can when your skin or hair are rejuvenated with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy from expert medical aesthetic clinician, Dr. Preussner, at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, MA. Call for a consultation at (508) 429-1006 and learn more today!

Get smooth, younger-looking skin with one quick, non-invasive cosmetic treatment.botox

You are considering ways to refresh your appearance and all your thoughts turn to ways to smooth out certain lines and wrinkles in your face. You don’t want to do anything drastic or get surgery but you do want to take a few years off your skin. Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You in Holliston, MA is here to tell you how Botox could help.

How does Botox work?

Botox uses a purified form of botulinum toxin that, when administered into the muscles of the face, stops all signals that the nerves send to the muscles. The result? Muscles are temporarily paralyzed and unable to contract, which means that dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions are smoothed away. While Botox results won’t last forever, you can continue to visit our Holliston cosmetic expert for more Botox treatments to make sure that your results last longer.

What can Botox treat?

Botox is designed to reduce the appearance of certain lines and wrinkles of the face. While wrinkles caused by sun damage won’t respond to this cosmetic treatment, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and wrinkles around the eyes and nose can often be smoothed away with Botox. Botox is the best option for wrinkles that are caused by smiling, frowning, squinting and other facial expressions.

What goes into getting Botox?

Most people love the idea of getting Botox because they can take years off their face without needing surgery or incisions in order to do it. A series of small needles are injected into the muscles of the face to stop them from contracting. This treatment only takes a couple minutes to complete and there is no recovery time, so you can easily come in anytime to get Botox and go right back to your daily routine. While some patients may choose to have the area numbed prior to getting Botox injections, you’ll be happy to hear that most people don’t feel more than a slight pinch because these needles are incredibly thin.

For a New You in Holliston, MA, is ready to help you get the look you want, whether you choose to get Botox, a chemical peel or other skin treatment. Find out what our cosmetic services can do for you.

Tags: Dermal Fillers   anti-aging  

One of the top concerns for people is aging and sun-damaged skin. The older a patient gets, the less elastic the skin becomes, making dermal fillerswrinkles and lines more visible. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical solution to this problem. Find out how Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You in Holliston, MA can improve the appearance of aging skin using dermal fillers.

What Are Dermal Fillers?
A filler is a substance that is injected into the dermal layer of the skin to make it look fuller and youthful. Fillers are commonly made of natural agents like calcium and hyaluronic acid and are more commonly known by their brand names (i.e. Juvederm). When injected into the skin, it fills in places that have less volume due to the aging process and exposure to the sun. 

A Fix for Aging Skin
The more the skin ages and the more it is exposed to harmful UV rays, the deeper lines can become. Dermal fillers can rejuvenate the look of the skin in as little as a couple of weeks and the effects can last up to 18 months before you need another treatment. Here are a few common problems your Holliston skin specialist can address with fillers:

- Wrinkles around the face.
- Marionette and laugh lines.
- Crow’s feet around the eyes.
- Thin lips and lip lines.

What to Expect at Your Filler Appointment
You won't have to spend a lot of time in the office to get better-looking skin with dermal fillers. First, you’ll discuss your concerns with a specialist, including any past treatments you’ve had and areas of the face that you want to fill in. Next, you’ll lay back and receive the targeted injections (a light anesthetic will be administered). The procedure only takes about 15 minutes, so you can do it on your lunch hour.

Better Skin with Fillers
You can improve the look of your face by years with a few dermal sessions at For a New You in Holliston, MA, a medical aesthetics and laser treatment spa. Call (508) 429-1006 today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Barbara Preussner and her friendly staff.
