LOS ANGELES, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The spring equinox means longer days and warm weather on the horizon. For individuals suffering from skin flaws and unwanted hair, however, the expectation of exposed skin outdoors can create a lot of anxiety. As skin ages, it becomes increasingly susceptible to unwanted hair, wrinkles, age spots, acne and other blemishes, many of which are only exacerbated by exposure to sunlight. Fortunately, the doctors at Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute provide the industry-standard in cosmetic dermatology, offering patients cutting edge methods for skin preservation and rejuvenation. Among the most exciting advances in cosmetic dermatology is the array of available laser treatments. IPL Photofacial, for example, is a laser treatment that is ideal for skin care concerns ranging from redness, light acne scars and rosacea to broken capillaries and hyper pigmentation. The IPL (Intense-pulsed light) Photofacial penetrates the skin's surface to treat the issues at the source, eliminating redness, sun spots and old acne scars. In most cases, the skin will even continue to improve for weeks after the actual IPL treatment. Meanwhile, the Laser Genesis treatment targets fine lines on the face as well as skin texture to create smoother, more youthful skin. After protecting their skin and using laser treatments to make sure skin looks young and healthy, many people find they're eager to show off at the beach. While normally wearing a bathing suit would necessitate painful waxing, Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute utilize cutting-edge laser dermatology treatments to permanently eliminate unwanted hair growth on the face and body. Not only are their treatments extremely effective, but also safe, making laser hair removal a far more effective and almost entirely pain-free alternative to the endless plucking, waxing and shaving that most women are used to dealing with during beach season. Hair in the bikini area can of course be embarrassing if not removed with professional precision, though far more debilitating can be unwanted hair on the face. Perceptible female facial hair is an unfortunate reality, especially as women begin to age. Fortunately, the doctors at Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute specialize in facial hair removal that is quick and effective. After about seven 15-minute sessions, clients leave with the smooth, beautiful faces they remember from their youth. The institute's empathetic doctors even offer a desensitizing cream to numb any pain. The spring months can be some of the most beautiful and relaxing of the year, so it is especially unfortunate to allow concern about wrinkles, spots, or unwanted hair to get in the way of your enjoyment of the season. For women and men who want to make sure they look and feel their best, contact the professionals at Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute at 805-800-3319 or 818-745-1266 for a consultation, and prepare for beach weather without anxiety.
