Vaginal Rejuvenation

Written By: Belinda Stewart

Let’s talk about VAG, BABY.  As Salt-N-Pepa used to say, “Yo, I don’t think we should talk about this.  People might misunderstand what we trying to say ya’know.  NO, but is a part of life”.  Yes, unfortunately it is a part of life.  As we age, our bodies go through a transformation. For many women, the aging process and childbirth take a toll on the vagina, which stretches and loses muscle tone over time. Lack of hormones or medical treatments for cancer can add to the lack of moisture leading to painful sex.  This natural occurrence can lead to reduced sexual satisfaction (for both partners), embarrassment and a loss of self-esteem that can blindside even the most confident of women.

Laser vaginal rejuvenation repairs the muscles and tissues in the vagina.

CO2RE Intima is a new, in office, non-surgical laser treatment to relieve the vaginal symptoms women may be experiencing related to childbirth and aging. CO2RE Intima is a medical laser that delivers controlled CO2 energy to the vaginal or vulva tissue – so cells make more collagen – improving skin tone, texture and appearance.  You can consult with any of our Registered Nurses to see if this treatment is for you.  Don’t be embarrassed anymore.  We have you covered.

Myths About Laser Treatments

Common Myths About Laser Treatments

Laser treatments and myths

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we’re dedicated to making sure that each and every one of our clients is not just comfortable and taken care of but confident, too. Whether you’re coming to us for laser treatments, BOTOX®, hormone replacement therapy, a deep tissue massage or one of the many other services that we can provide, we want you to be relaxed.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths out there about some of the therapies we offer. Some people might be understandably nervous or hesitant about getting certain things done. With the experience we have in helping people feel at home in their own bodies, we can give you the truth behind the myths, so you know you don’t need to worry.

In this blog, we’re going to look at some of the common myths about some of the laser treatments we offer at our spa in Tulsa.

There’s Only One Type

Most people outside of the cosmetic industry tend to assume that there’s only one type of laser treatment, typically associating it with laser hair removal. This is the first myth. There are actually a number of different laser treatments available, and all of them will apply different kinds of lasers, for different lengths of time and with different intensities. The type of laser will depend on what it’s being used for, and who the expert using it on your skin is.

Laser Hair Removal Is Painful

It’s easy to assume that having hair burnt away will hurt, but just how painful this type of hair removal is often overstated. In reality, there’s less pain, although no one can promise it will be pain-free. It’s usually felt as a pinprick or heat sensation, but it depends on the type of skin you have, and where the laser is being applied.

Lasers Damage and Thin Your Skin

This myth is definitely understandable since it would be safe to assume exposing your skin to a focused laser would do some damage. What this comes down to, however, is that your laser treatment is being carried out by a professional, who knows where, how, and for how long to apply a laser to a certain area.

A similar myth to this one is that laser exposure causes your skin to become thinner, but laser treatments are often used to plump the skin. Controlled heating in specific areas encourages the production of collagen and elastin, which your body uses to replace older tissue.

Laser Tattoo Removal Leaves Ugly Scars

Actually, the risk of scarring from laser tattoo removal is minimal. With proper application done over the right period of time, a professional using lasers to remove a tattoo will leave very little to absolutely no scarring. They can also give you advice on how to take care of the area you’re having the tattoo removed from, to help reduce the risk of scarring even further.

Laser Exposure Can Cause Cancer

Without getting too much into the physics side of things, lasers don’t actually operate at a wavelength that triggers cancerous growth. In fact, lasers are used to eliminate growths on the skin that can or have become cancerous.

The latest in tattoo removal technology, the Picoway

Written by: Belinda Stewart

Let’s now dive into another Laser treatment that has half the amount of treatments with less damage to surrounding tissue compared to its predecessors. Let’s talk PICOWAY. Over the years, we have had the fortunate experience to rent Tattoo Removal Laser treatment devices. Although all had successful results, the removal process could take up to 10 treatments, sometimes more, to minimize the appearance of the Tattoo. Providing this service 1-2 times per month sometimes did not lend itself to the needs of our clients. Create new technology with quicker results and more convenience to our clients, Boom, we now own the Picoway and provide treatments five days a week.

In short, Picoway is quicker and more likely to achieve complete resolution of tattoos over traditional tattoo lasers. The Picoway, (TA-DA!) is a picosecond pulse duration versus a nanosecond pulse duration laser. The faster pulse duration breaks up the ink into smaller molecules. Therefore, it has the ability to absorb the ink better to be excreted out of the body. Having used the traditional tattoo laser for years, without a doubt we now have much more success resolving tattoos quicker with virtually no shadow or residual pigmentation. Our experience is that it takes ½ the treatments which means ½ the time to resolution. A true gold standard in Tattoo Removal.

POOF! There goes aging!

Written by: Belinda Stewart

As we age, our skin does not heal quickly from the overpowering sun with use of topical skin treatments.  They often lose their power in healing imperfections.  Skin care is vital in maintaining the health of your skin over time, but these products along with anti-aging serums and scar removal products seem to make less of an impact on a day to day basis.

For more dramatic results in treating fine lines and wrinkles and restoring an even skin tone (those ugly browns), we have many laser treatments that can offer complete rejuvenation and help you shed years off the look of your skin! No matter the condition of your skin, using lasers to restore collagen production will allow your skin to return to it’s health with the use of laser treatments that require no downtime.  These lasers will pull the damage from layers of the skin that we do not see, bring them to the surface where they will then flake off.  Amazing!!!  Thus revealing even skin toned healthy skin.  Ask one our nurses which laser treatment is perfect for you.

Now is the time

Written By: Belinda Stewart

Time to clear those summer time browns.  Lets face it, we have loved the summer as the sun has kissed our faces, hid the imperfections of those thunder thighs, and allowed us to show off our shoulders in those amazing sundresses. 

Although we love the way we look, it really takes a toll and damages our forever skin in so many ways.   I like to encourage our clients or anyone who will listen to really look into spray tans with the use of amazing sunscreens now offered on the market. 

For those of you that say no, not me.  It is now time to repair and rid the damage we have acquired throughout the summer and possibly the last 10-20 years of abuse. 

What better way than with a Fotofacial, MicroLaser Peel, or even the amazing CO2.  Each of these laser treatments are amazing at unduing, repairing, and none the less anti-aging.  Who doesn’t want that?

All our laser treatments are HALF OFF for the next 2 days only. Shop Now.
