Where to Get Cosmetic Services in Los Angeles

When searching where to get cosmetic services in Los Angeles, there are many options to choose from.

But how do you know you are getting quality treatment?

At Laureate LA, we provide several cosmetic services that cover a variety of needs!

In this article, we will be discussing the different cosmetic services we offer, such as:

  • Anti-Aging Treatments
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Cosmetic Injectables

Anti-Aging Treatments

First, Laureate LA offers non-invasive cosmetic services that help with reversing the signs of aging.

Not only will these cosmetic services make you look younger, but they do not require any recovery or downtime.

Thanks to our state-of-the-art technology, many of these treatments can be done in less than an hour!

Our anti-aging cosmetic services target the visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin, both are results of lost collagen over time.

As collagen decreases in the skin, so does elasticity. Our goal is to bring this elasticity and plumpness back into the skin by boosting your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.

Some skin-tightening cosmetic services provided at Laureate LA include:

  • Morpheus 8 is a micro-needling treatment that aims to jumpstart collagen production, and in turn, get rid of wrinkles. This technique is executed by using micro-needling, which entails puncturing the skin with tiny needles, in conjunction with radiofrequency, to heat skin tissue.
  • Forma, another anti-aging treatment that was quickly popularized by a whole slew of celebrities, aims to contour the skin on the face by increasing collagen production. Now deemed the “non-surgical facelift,” Froma creates a lifted, defined look, chiseling the face and jaw.
  • IPL, or intense pulsed light treatment, is yet another anti-aging treatment. It is most commonly used for skin resurfacing purposes and works wonders for removing aging spots, varicose veins, and sunspots.
  • Finally, PLP, or platelet-rich plasma is used in conjunction with micro-needling to revitalize the skin and restore a youthful glow. This treatment begins by drawing blood from the skin, the blood platelets are then separated, and a specialist prepares the enriched plasma that will be returned to the skin.

Laser Hair Removal

Another cosmetic service offered by Laureate Los Angeles is laser hair removal, which has become increasingly popular because of its ability to permanently remove body hair anywhere on the body!

Yes, it’s possible to fully get rid of your body hair without waxing! Laser hair removal works because the hair follicle absorbs the radiation from the laser, similar to how melanin absorbs radiation from the sun.

The laser targets each follicle, destroying the germ cell and in turn, hair growth. Over time, growth is permanently inhibited. This is why it is important to return to Laureate Los Angeles for multiple laser hair removal sessions, about 8-12 times.

Each treatment decreases the strength of the hair follicle. But to achieve permanent results, treatment must be consistent and at the right point in the hair growth cycle. If laser hair removal treatment is done while the hair is not in the growth phase, the treatment has a risk of not working.

Therefore, when booking cosmetic services, such as laser hair removal, the professionals at Laureate Los Angeles will ensure that your treatments are spaced out correctly.

Aim to visit Laureate LA every 10 weeks for about 6 months to complete the entire laser hair removal process and get the most effective results possible.

Cosmetic Injectables

Finally, one of the most popular cosmetic services offered by Laureate LA is cosmetic injectables, like Botox and filler.

Whether you are looking to get Juvederm, Restylane, lip fillers, or Botox, Laureate LA has got you covered.

While we are on this topic, let’s debunk the common misunderstanding that Botox and fillers are the same things.

Yes, they are both types of cosmetic injections but they serve completely different purposes.

Botox is a type of “neurotoxin,” which blocks the action of certain nerves and relaxes them. By relaxing the nerves, muscles in the injected area will no longer contract and therefore not create lines or wrinkles in unwanted parts of the face, like between your eyebrows or around your eyes.

Another injectable neuromodulator we offer is Dysport, which targets the frown lines between the eyebrows.

Fillers, on the other hand, aim to add volume to the face where desired, often the lips and cheeks. They give the face or lips a more plump, youthful appearance.

There are a wide variety of fillers on the market, from hyaluronic acid fillers and calcium fillers to collagen-stimulating fillers. At Laureate LA we offer both Juvederm and Restylane, which vary in thickness and are used for different purposes.

Overall, it is important to remember that Botox and fillers are used in different areas. Botox is injected in places where muscles contract or where your face naturally shows emotion, such as around the eyes and frown lines.

Fillers are injected in places where there are wrinkles that need to be filled or other areas in the face that need more volume, which can include injecting the chin and nose for increased facial symmetry.
