Laser Hair Removal New York at Shizuka NY Day Spa

SHIZUKA new york Laser Hair Removal system “Palomar SLP1000E (no longer avaialble) is safe for all types of skin. Laser hair removal at Shizuka New York works by emitting pulses of laser energy to the hair follicles. This energy is absorbed by the dark pigment in the follicles, and they become disabled. Up to now, treating darker skin types has been a problem because darker skin absorbs enough of the laser energy to cause adverse side effects.

To overcome this obstacle, the Palomar SLP1000 Diode Laser Hair Removal System uses Super Long-Pulse Technology. This technology delivers each pulse of laser energy to the skin over a longer period of time than other hair removal lasers. This longer delivery time (pulse width) minimizes the amount of heat that builds up in the skin but still allows enough heat to reach and disable the hair follicles. Super Long-Pulse Technology is so effective, it permits the treatment of ALL skin colors (types 1-6). It is specially suited for Asians and for people with tanned skin.

Sun Damage Treatments and Sun Damage Products

Sun Damaged skin can be restored with Intense Pulsed Light and Microdermabrasion treatment. The crystal powder removes old skin and prompts the birth of a new skin layer. After the first treatment, you can clearly recognize the positive effect on your skin.

To remove spots after sun-tanning, we recommend the following products: Shizuka New York KojiLac CHQ 4% Pads (available in the spa), KojiLac Cream (spa and online store).

Skin Care Tips for Fall and Winter

When autumn arrives, the mercury falls and cool winds begin to blow. The change in seasons causes people to switch from using air-conditioning to heating. This abrupt change has a negative effect on people’s skin.

If you spend a lot of time in air-conditioned rooms, you should drink as much water as you can. You should also eat a lot of vegetables and fruit to nourish your body with vitamins and minerals. These foods also have a high water content. Proper eating habits are indispensable to staying healthy and preserving the condition of your skin.

Caffeine is bad for both your skin and body. You should restrict your intake of both coffee and chocolate. Green tea, which also contains caffeine, is an exception since it contains a large amount of beneficial vitamin C. You may want to substitute drinking green tea in place of coffee. It has a more soothing taste and is also better for your health. It can also reduce the risk of catching cold and cancer.

The autumn sun can be unexpectedly strong. You should be careful to apply sun protection to protect your skin, not only in summer, but in autumn and other seasons as well.
