ABOUT LASER HAIR REDUCTION

Lasertrolysis is a method of removing unwanted hair, utilizing laser energy targeted to the hair follicle to cause thermal damage and prevent further hairs from growing. It was invented by a team of laser dermatologists at the Wellman Laboratories of Photomedicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital.

The near-infrared laser light emitted by the system is preferentially absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s unique, patented contact-cooling handpiece cools the skin during the laser energy delivery.

Theoretically, damage to the hair follicle can remove unwanted hair permanently, but because of the nature of hair and the many factors that influence the growth of hair, the results are variable. The effect of repeated treatments is cumulative. In fact, most people experience long-term hair removal.

As with any medical treatment, use of the LightSheer Diode System can have some side effects. However, side effects have been minor and manageable in clinical use. The precise laser parameters used for the LightSheer Diode System were carefully defined by studying the anatomy of the hair follicle and precisely matching the color of laser light and the pulse duration to the size, depth, and location of the hair follicle. This research has resulted in a safe technique that effectively eliminates the risk of scarring and substantially reduces most other complications following treatment.

No treatment to remove unwanted hair is completely painless. The LightSheer Diode System is fast which reduces treatment time. It provides long-lasting hair removal, reducing the need for repeated treatment. The cooling lens helps reduce discomfort while protecting the skin surface from thermal injury during delivery of the laser light. If large or sensitive areas with unwanted hair are to be treated, a topical anesthetic cream may be applied to the site to further reduce discomfort.

Immediately after treatment, the site will be somewhat swollen, appear slightly red in color, and will feel like a mild sunburn. This reaction subsides over a few hours, and then the treated sites usually return to their normal appearance. The amount of discomfort after this procedure is usually minimal and does not limit most normal physical activities. Since light is used to remove the hair, there is no bleeding and no open wound is created. For this reason, there is no need to apply a bandage and wound care is generally not required.

Each pulse of laser energy from the LightSheer Diode System will treat a square area of skin of approximately half an inch (12mm). For this reason, the amount of time required depends on the size of the area requiring treatment. For example, the upper lip and bikini line may require only 5-15 minutes of treatment. While a longer period of time will be required to treat the back or legs.

ABOUT SKIN LASER TREATMENTS

BBL light energy absorbs targets such as fine, broken vessels, rosacea and brown spots that are caused by an overproduction of melanin.

An active tan from the sun or tanning beds is not appropriate with a BBL treatment.
It is recommended that a person does not have sun exposure in the area being treated for three weeks prior to the treatment with BBL. Self tanners must be faded from the skin for at least a week to 10 days before treatment.

 The number of treatments vary from each individual. We often combine other procedures to to further enhance the outcome.

Your eyes will be covered by safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted area.

This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup and resume activities immediately.

ABOUT INJECTIBLES

There is slight discomfort when injecting anything into the body, whether it is an immunization or cosmetic filler or neurotoxin. We may use numbing creams or apply cold compresses to relieve any discomfort. 

There is no downtime after fillers or neurotoxin injections. 

Neuromuscular disruptors such as Botox and Dysport take 3-7 days for the body to fully absorb the injection to see results. 

Neuromuscular disruptors such as Botox and Dysport last roughly 4-6 months. Each body absorbs and processes injectables differently. 

Filler results are immediate. There will be some redness and swelling. It is advisable to refrain from wearing makeup, excessive exercise, sun exposure, and unnecessary lotions and creams for 24 hours. 

Different fillers will interact with different peoples bodies. You can expect your fillers to generally last 6-9 months. 

Your aesthetician or injector will know which type of filler is best for your specific skin and aesthetic concerns. The differences may include where you wish to have fillers, for instance you may need a thicker filler for a specific area. Your experienced, trusted Christina Clinc injector will know which will work best for you. 

ABOUT SKIN SPA TREATMENTS

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using tiny needles to puncture the skin and stimulate collagen production. The process creates tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the topmost layer of the skin, which then helps to stimulate and boost collagen and elastin production. As a result, skin appears firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking. Microneedling can be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. It can also be used for skin rejuvenation to improve the texture of aging skin. The procedure can be done on almost any area of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. Your skin will need a few days to a week to completely heal post-treatment and may experience light peeling during the healing process. Additionally, it is important to follow post-treatment instructions, such as applying provided serums and avoiding sun exposure.

Superficial Chemical Peel Treatments are quick, in-office procedures that are given in combination with glycolic home care products to stimulate skin renewal helping the skin appear healthier, plumper and tighter with enhanced skin smoothness and clarity. We offer 4 main chemical peels: VI Chemical peels, Obagi Blue Peel, SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel™, and the SkinMedica Illuminize Peel.

Microdermabrasion is performed with a diamond dust-coated wand, that gently exfoliates the skin. Our Apeel device removes dead skin cells and other impurities from the surface of the skin, leaving it looking smoother and more even. Microdermabrasion can also be combined with facial treatments such as facial masks, chemical peels, and other treatments to achieve optimal results. The effects of this procedure can be seen after just one session, but multiple sessions are often recommended for best results. It is a safe and effective treatment you can incorporate into your regular medspa regimen.

Geneo brings your a three-step innovative facial that can be customized to your skin. The three steps include 1) a gentle exfoliatation to create a CO2-rich environment on the skin’s surface. The body responds by sending a surge of oxygen to the skin, which creates ideal conditions to nourish and transform the skin from the inside out. 2) Lite Ultrasound creates micro vibrations that instantly smooth the skin and increase the permeability of the skin’s protective layer, enabling better nutrient absorption. 3) The last step is a relaxing hands-free lymphatic massage delivering instant reduction of redness and puffiness while infusing active ingredients even deeper into the skin. 

ABOUT Coolsculpting Fat Reduction

The CoolSculpting® procedure shapes what you see without surgery or downtime, so you’ll look great from every angle

CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

No surgery, no anesthesia, no downtime. Afterwards, patients are usually able to return to normal activities.

The CoolSculpting® procedure is non-surgical, safe, effective, and best of all, the results are long-term.

During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Applicators that use vacuum will draw the tissue into the applicator cup. You may feel pulling, tugging, and mild pinching. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat so you may feel intense cold but this sensation typically subsides within 10 minutes as the area becomes numb. Many people read, check email or even take a nap during their sessions.

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

While some patients may see results as early as 3 weeks after their session, most dramatic results are usually seen 1-3 months after treatment.

CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only the targeted fat cells. CoolSculpting results are long-term, as treated fat cells are gone for good.

Yes! The CoolSculpting procedure has a 95% patient satisfaction rate. Your provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals.

ProFractional Therapy™ FAQs

ProFractional Therapy is a quick and effective laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is performed in your health care provider’s office and can be custom tailored to address a wide range of skin conditions and desired outcomes.

ProFractional is a laser made by Sciton that uses a tiny beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. The laser used in this system has a very high attraction to the water in your skin. When the laser energy is applied, it ablates (vaporizes) a layer of skin to a precisely-controlled depth. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. This body’s wound healing response creates new collagen, which adds firmness and resilience to the skin.

ProFractional has the unique ability to penetrate very deep into the skin, but with very little heat damage to surrounding tissue. This combination allows for efficacious collagen remodeling (due to the deep treatments) and a high safety margin (due to low thermal damage) on all skin types. This combination makes ProFractional one of the safest, yet most effective resurfacing lasers available today.

Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, although many people also treat the chest and hands. Your health care provider can adjust the laser settings appropriately for the specific area being treated.

The skin in the treatment area will be cleansed and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. A laser hand-piece will be positioned gently on the skin. When the laser energy is applied, you will hear a rapid succession of snapping sounds as the computer-guided hand-piece scans the laser beam over the treatment area. The hand-piece will be moved around to adjacent locations until the entire desired area has been covered. The procedure normally takes 15 to 30 minutes.

ProFractional therapy is widely regarded as a comfortable procedure, usually tolerated with the use of a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on the depth of treatment.

Immediately following the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Your health care provider will advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations, which may include analgesics and application of an ointment to keep the skin moist.

You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use sun block to avoid solar damage and premature aging of your skin.

Complete healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to normal activities and apply makeup a day or two after the treatment. There may be some swelling that will subside within several days following the treatment.

As your skin heals in the days following your treatment, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodeling that occurs during the 4 to 6 months following your treatment. It may therefore take several months to see maximum benefit from your treatment.

ProFractional Therapy is widely regarded as a safe procedure. Because only a fraction of the skin is affected, even deep treatments can be very safe. Your health care provider can provide more information on the risks associated with any type of medical procedure, including ProFractional Therapy. One of the best ways to reduce the possibility of complications is to follow the after-treatment care instructions and follow-up schedule provided by your health care provider. Doing so will help reduce the possibility of infection and ensure proper healing.

Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Some patients seek the minimal downtime advantages of very conservative treatments and choose to extend their therapy over several sessions. Others desire more rapid results and are able to tolerate longer downtime, and thus pursue a more aggressive single treatment. Your health care provider can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine ProFractional Therapy with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

I had a BBL and MicroLaserPeel done at Christina Clinic. The office décor was so inviting, tasteful and relaxing. The new owner did my treatments. She was telling me the clinic is now woman and minority owned and they have lasers for all skin tones. She explained both procedures and what to expect during and after in such great detail. She took the time to discuss my face and customize my treatments. My skin looks amazing and I look much younger. Even my boyfriend noticed. I most definitely will be back.

I have had the best experience at Christina Clinic - especially with Betsy! Betsy is simply the best (however Lynn helped me too and was great and sweet too!). I am doing some laser hair removal and her knowledge, rapport/bedside manner, honesty with realistic expectations and skill is exactly what I want in a clinic. Every employee I connected with, from the front desk...to any other employee I passed by in the lobby were genuinely friendly. Their communication has also been amazing. I accidentally forgot an appointment (even though the sent a reminder text) and she knew the times that worked for me and was able to squeeze me in the next day. I HIGHLY recommend the Christina Clinic!

I came to Christina clinic for my upper lip hair and pimples on my face. I used to have a thick hair on my upper lip and a lot of pimples on my face. I was so embarrassed with my appearance. Then, I came to Christina clinic for Laser hair removal and Skin pen. I could see a great result since my first treatment. Now, I am almost done with my both treatments and feel satisfied. I would recommend this clinic for anyone who has the same problems.

I had been to a different laser hair removal clinic before and had disappointing results. I felt discouraged from laser hair removal clinics but when I came in for my consult appt at Christina Clinic I could instantly knew I came to the right place. From the very start I could tell they genuinely wanted to help get rid of your unwanted hair and werent just there to talk you into getting their packages. Betsy was absolutely fantastic and very attentive to how I was reacting to the treatment. She is super friendly, works around your schedule, and makes you feel comfortable asking questions, (overall awesome person!) thanks to her and the clinic, I saw significantly better results! The staff is extremely professional and kind, and i highly recommend checking them out for your laser hair removal needs:)

I visited the Christina Clinic almost ten years ago, and had an incredible experience. The staff were kind, very informed and experienced and always made me feel comfortable. I have very dark hair and olive skin, and from a very young age I was always self conscious and very aware of (what I thought was excessive as a kid) my darker ‘peach fuzz’ on my face. My eyebrows were thick and very usually (daily) required attention to keep them separate. Painful tweezing, waxing, shaving, the works… I’ve been incredibly pleased with the results, and after ten years, I’m going back to do it all again. … I love this place, and it’s changed my life.

I smoked cigarettes for years and my skin payed the price! Tricia has been doing micro needling on me and I have so much more confidence now! She also set me up with some products that leave my skin literally glowing. She's taken the time to educate me on the benefits of different products and why they would work best for me pertaining to my skin type and my insecurities. Since starting to see Tricia, I've had so many compliments on how great my skin looks now! I can't wait to try other services. I 100% trust her! The location is so clean and beautiful. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. I found my new home for my skin care. Thanks to Tricia, I'm a new woman!
