If you have goals for longer-term hair removal/reduction and are sick of shaving and waxing, lasers might be able to solve your hairy woes. Laser Hair Removal is the best and most precise way to get rid of unwanted hair. It’s also the best option for people who experience breakouts from every other method. Lasers can leave more permanent results than other hair-removing alternatives. Hair removal lasers are great for the under arms (armpits), legs, arms, groin, back, chest and face. The darker the hair, the better the result. Lighter skin tones tend to have fewer reactions, but lasers can be used to treat all skin types. Also, they make life much easier for women that have to shave every day and find it time consuming or cumbersome.
Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. Virtually pain-free, safely and visibly reduces unwanted hair over a series of 6-9 treaments.
 
The ideal season for hair removal is one with the least amount of sun exposure. Because we spend a lot of time in the sun in the summertime, laser hair removal poses the least risk in the wintertime. Sun stimulates melanin production in the skin, producing the deeper pigment we recognize as a tan. While bronzing in the sun may be sought after by some, it is one of the biggest adversaries when it comes to laser hair removal as well as any anti-aging efforts you may undergo. When your skin is at its lightest, the chances of any skin color changes following hair removal are minimized, allowing your laser technician to treat you at the optimal setting for your skin type and hair characteristics to create the most desirable results.
Another benefit to undergoing laser hair removal in the winter before bathing suit season arrives is so that you will have optimal results by the time summer arrives.. We are currently offering many laser hair removal specials for patients to take advantage of, viewable on our Specials page. To make your appointment, please contact us today.

As a woman, it’s important to not only take care of your body, but feel good about your appearance as well. Having hair in unwanted places can be annoying for women who are constantly having to shave or wax just to maintain hair growth in places such as the bikini area, arms, legs, lip, and the underarms. Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, we take pride in our experienced aestheticians who go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied with your results throughout the 5-9 treatments.
 

How does laser hair removal work?



The hair follicles receive beams of light and absorb them, which in turn destroys the hair in that particular area. Nearly anyone with unwanted facial or body hair can benefit from this procedure. The ideal candidate would be a patient who has dark hair and light skin. However, our lasers are safe for all skin tones. Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa recommend you visit our practice for a consultation to see if you are a candidate for this procedure.

 

Multiple treatments are needed due to hair growth at different times and in different areas under your skin. Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa will schedule you in intervals of four to six weeks between your treatments with our aestheticians. Laser hair removal is pain-free, unlike waxing or other alternatives. The aestheticians here at Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa will tell you that the side effects are minimal. After each treatment, you may experience redness, puffiness and sunburn sensations for a few days.

The holiday season with all its parties, family gatherings, and New Year’s resolutions can be stressful for men and women of all ages because this is typically a special time when they want to look and feel their best despite all the stress frequently associated with holiday events.
Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. and his staff at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Medspa can help each individual man or woman look and feel their best for all holiday events coming up.  Dr. Bishara takes the time to cultivate individual relationships with his patients in order to assure that they receive their desired look.  He uses the term “patient” because he says, “I feel the term patient is a more personal and appropriate term because I am working with people in personal ways.”
In his new state-of-the art facility completed in 2014, he offers the full gamut of cosmetic procedures such as robotic hair restoration, breast augmentation, tummy tuck and a variety of laser procedures. The calming music and soothing décor of his new facility create an atmosphere to ease the nerves of any anxious patient.  “Sometimes patients come in extremely nervous, and my goal is to provide a calming, relaxing environment to reduce their anticipated anxiety,” he said.  Additionally, Dr. Bishara takes the time to listen, discuss and explain all treatment options before outlining an appropriate treatment plan.
In his Paragon office in Mansfield, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. offers “Wrinkle-Free Wednesday.”  Patients can come in for Botox and Xeomin treatments at discounted rates.  It’s easy to see why this is the most popular and busiest day of the week for Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. and his staff.  He treats hundreds of patients seeking these non-invasive, preventive procedures from 8am until 8pm.  “We go through enough Botox to remove every single wrinkle from an elephant’s skin,” he grinned, “but my goal is for them to still look like themselves,” he explained.
Also, as an AAAHC certified facility and dual trained surgeon, he can provide acute care as well as cosmetic surgical services.  His goal is to make sure that every patient’s needs are satisfactorily and effectively met.  In the spirit of giving this holiday season, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. plans to open a combined clinic that will offer reduced rates for general surgical procedures including lumpectomy, advanced laparoscopic hernia and gallbladder procedures, and varicose vein ablation.
“The current medical system in this country is not sustainable.  Hospitals and surgery centers charging $11,000 for a 15-minute procedure is simply not feasible when it could be offered at a more reasonable price,” he said.  These large centers are sometimes bound to hold pricing high due their contracted rates with insurance companies.  As a responsible physician, he wants to provide clinical services that promote and foster a medical system that is sustainable and affordable.  That is why he has announced the addition of four advanced laparoscopic surgeons to the staff at the Paragon Surgery Center in Mansfield.  Surgical procedures are now being offered to all patients state-wide for a cash price that is often less than some deductible plans.  Although this system is intended to be cash based, some patients will still be able to submit the charges for reimbursement through their out of network benefits.
As his services continue to grow and expand, Dr. Mark A. Bishara, M.D. P.A. has two other locations for the convenience of his patients; Southlake and North Park.
As the holiday season and the new year approach, let Dr. Bishara and his staff help you look and feel your best.  Call one of his three convenient locations at 817-473-2120 or email [email protected] to make an appointment and ensure that you enjoy the holidays knowing that you truly look your best!

Laser Hair Therapy

Capillus272 Laser Hair Therapy Dallas, Texas

At the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we are pleased to offer the most advanced and comprehensive laser treatments available for improving the appearance of your skin and hair. Laser hair therapy is just one of our most popular aesthetic laser treatments, and we are excited to share this technology with our Dallas, Fort Worth, and North Texas patients.

How Laser Hair Growth Works

The Capillus272 uses a special type of laser light that is known to improve circulation and stimulate cellular metabolism within and around the hair follicles of the scalp. Unlike the lasers used for aesthetic skin treatments and tattoo removal, Capillus does not ablate or damage the cells of your skin. Instead, hair restoration is performed with low level lasers that are cool-to-the-touch.
Step 1: Dr. Bishara Recommends Capillus
First, Dr. Bishara recommends treatment with the Capillus hair loss laser to reverse the signs of thinning, shedding, or balding. Treatment recommendations vary, but might include 30-minute sessions every other day.
Step 2: Laser Therapy Becomes Part of Your Routine
In order to be effective, laser therapy must be incorporated into your daily routine. This is where laser caps like Capillus outshine other treatment options, like in-office domes and laser combs. The wearable and portable design of the Capillus enables comfortable, convenient, and consistent treatment for superior results.
Step 3: Hair Follicles Receive Low Level Laser Stimulation
The Capillus272 provides safe exposure to low-level laser light on a regular basis. Exposure is non-invasive and the lasers are cool, creating a hair loss treatment experience with absolutely no pain or discomfort.
Step 4: Circulation and Metabolism Improve Across the Scalp
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is known to improve circulation and cellular metabolism across the scalp. This nourishes hair follicles along the front, top, and sides of the head—even the ones that no longer produce hair.
Step 5: Newer, Fuller Hair Grows Naturally
LLLT continues to improve circulation and cellular metabolism, delivering more blood, nutrients, and oxygen to each hair follicle. Over time, consistent use of the Capillus272 has been shown to increase hair growth by up to 51%.*

Benefits of Capillus Laser Cap

Capillus is continually recommended by world-renowned physicians as a safe, proven, and effective method of non-surgical hair restoration. Below are just a few of the benefits offered only by Capillus.
Discrete. Capillus272 is a flexible dome-like insert that fits securely within your favorite baseball cap or hat. Simply insert, wear, and enjoy the benefits of laser hair restoration with complete discretion.
Portable. Capillus272 is powered by a portable battery pack, enabling you to take your hair loss treatment anywhere.
Powerful. With 272 lasers, the Capillus272 is capable of greater energy output than any other available laser cap. Greater output delivers a higher degree of hair follicle stimulation, which can ultimately lead to better results.
Effective. In premarketing study for FDA clearance, the Capillus272 demonstrated the ability to effectively promote hair regrowth when compared to a placebo device. On average, patients experienced a 51% increase in hair counts.*
Safe. Capillus272 has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of androgenic alopecia, or hair loss.

Whether their goal is to turn back the hands of time, look as good as they feel, or age gracefully, Americans are embracing non surgical cosmetic facial treatments to get the quickest results with the least down time. In their quest for a more youthful appearance, however, they should keep in mind that popular non invasive procedures like the nonsurgical face lift and laser skin resurfacing are not just beauty routines. They’re medical treatments that should be respected for the benefits and risks associated with them.

Most of us want to look as good as we feel and reasonably attractive, and most people have an issue or two that they would admit to being self-conscious about. These procedures can be done rather quickly with a small amount of discomfort, there’s very little recovery time, and the results are fairly evident within a day or two. And the economics are much kinder to the person who does a little maintenance from time to time as opposed to the person that undergoes a lengthy surgical procedure.
The top nonsurgical procedures of choice for both sexes in the United States are BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable dermal fillers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Other popular procedures include the nonsurgical face lift and laser skin resurfacing, which is often used to deal with acne scars or general skin care.
Botox or Xeomin blocks the nerve impulses that cause the muscle contractions that control certain facial expressions which, in turn, cause a breakdown of collagen leading to creases.
Included in the category known as Injectable dermal fillers are commercial products like Juvederm, Belotero and Radiesse. Fillers, which replace the collagen and facial fat that we lose as we age, are used to lift, plump, smooth, and recontour the face. Botox and fillers are often administered in conjunction with each other to achieve the nonsurgical face lift or “liquid face lift”.
Like Botox and dermal fillers, microdermabrasion works best when repeated in a series of skin rejuvenation treatments. It involves using a machine that sprays fine mildly abrasive crystals to remove the epidermis, or outer skin layer consisting primarily of dead skin cells. The crystals and cells are then vacuumed away. This controlled trauma to the skin leaves it looking smoother and healthier, with improvements to both the epidermis (the top layer of skin) and dermis (the middle layer of skin that includes collagen and elastic tissue.)
Chemical peels are another type of skin resurfacing procedure that uses acids or other chemicals to treat sun-damage, wrinkles, blemishes and blotchiness. They can be applied to the entire face or just specific areas, or almost anywhere else on the body for smoother, more even-toned skin.
Like dermabrasion and chemical peels, laser skin treatments help revitalize aged or sun-damaged skin, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin. Other usages include the treatment of birthmarks, acne scars, and vascular lesions. Moles, warts, tattoos, and unwanted body hair can also be removed by laser skin treatment.
While these procedures may all seem to be mainly cosmetic in nature – more beauty procedure than surgical procedure – they are considered surgical, albeit less invasive than many other cosmetic surgery procedures. There are real risks involved that should be understood prior to committing to treatment. For example, using too much Botox or injecting it into the wrong spot can result in a drooping eyebrow or drooling. If dermal fillers are overinjected, you may end up with more augmentation than you were counting on, at least temporarily. With both microdermabrasion and chemical peels there is a risk of hyperpigmentation (dark spots) of the skin. Infection, bruising, and swelling are all temporary side effects of any procedure.
For best results with your noninvasive cosmetic procedure, consult with one or more plastic surgeons or dermatologists and make sure they are trained and experienced in the specific treatment that interests you. They should be able to assess your situation, answer your questions, lay out the risks and benefits, and determine if you are a viable candidate for the procedure.
First-time patients can ease their way into noninvasive cosmetic treatments by requesting one of the temporary fillers that last up to a year to “try on” the results. Start with a conservative approach to make sure you like what you see, and sample just one treatment at a time so you can discern what works and what doesn’t in your particular case.

NO TRATAMIENTOS COSMÉTICOS QUIRÚRGICAS: NO SOLO A rutina de belleza
Ya sea que su objetivo es hacer retroceder las manecillas del tiempo, verse tan bien como se sienten, o envejecer con gracia, los estadounidenses están adoptando tratamientos faciales cosméticos no quirúrgicos para obtener los resultados más rápidos con el menor tiempo de inactividad. En su búsqueda de una apariencia más joven, sin embargo, deben tener en cuenta que tan popular como el y no son sólo rutinas de belleza. Son tratamientos médicos que deben ser respetados por los beneficios y riesgos asociados con them.non procedimientos invasivos como el y no son sólo rutinas de belleza. Son tratamientos médicos que deben ser respetados por los beneficios y riesgos asociados con lavado de cara them.nonsurgical y no son sólo rutinas de belleza. Son tratamientos médicos que deben ser respetados por los beneficios y riesgos asociados con them.laser rejuvenecimiento de la piel no son sólo rutinas de belleza. Son tratamientos médicos que deben ser respetados por los beneficios y riesgos asociados con ellos.
La mayoría de nosotros quiere verse tan bien como nos sentimos y razonablemente atractiva, y la mayoría de la gente tiene un problema o dos que iban a admitir que soy consciente de. Estos procedimientos se pueden realizar con bastante rapidez con una pequeña cantidad de incomodidad, hay muy poco tiempo de recuperación, y los resultados son bastante evidente dentro de un día o dos. Y la economía son mucho más amable con la persona que hace un poco de mantenimiento de vez en cuando en lugar de la persona que se somete a un procedimiento quirúrgico largo.
Los principales procedimientos no quirúrgicos de elección para ambos sexos en los Estados Unidos son Botox, rellenos dérmicos inyectables, peelings químicos y la microdermoabrasión. Otros procedimientos populares incluyen el estiramiento facial no quirúrgico y la piel con láser, que se utiliza a menudo para tratar cicatrices de acné o cuidados generales de la piel.
Botox o Xeomin bloquea los impulsos nerviosos que causan las contracciones musculares que controlan ciertas expresiones faciales que, a su vez, causan una descomposición del colágeno que conduce a las arrugas.Se incluyen en la categoría conocida como inyectables rellenos dérmicos son productos comerciales como Juvederm, Belotero y Radiesse. Rellenos, que reemplazan el colágeno y grasa facial que perdemos a medida que envejecemos, se utilizan para levantar, regordeta, liso, y remodelar la cara. Botox y los rellenos se administran a menudo en combinación con otros para lograr el estiramiento facial no quirúrgico o “estiramiento facial líquido”.
Al igual que el Botox y los rellenos dérmicos, la microdermabrasión funciona mejor cuando se repite en una serie de tratamientos de rejuvenecimiento de la piel. Se trata de utilizar una máquina que pulveriza cristales ligeramente abrasivas finas para eliminar la epidermis, o capa externa de la piel que consisten principalmente de las células muertas de la piel. Los cristales y las células son entonces aspiradas de distancia. Este trauma controlada en la piel hojas de su aspecto suave y más saludable, con mejoras tanto a la epidermis (la capa superior de la piel) y la dermis (la capa media de la piel que incluye colágeno y tejido elástico.)
Los peelings químicos son otro tipo de procedimiento de rejuvenecimiento de la piel que utiliza ácidos u otros productos químicos para tratar el daño solar, arrugas, manchas y manchas. Se pueden aplicar en todo el rostro o zonas específicas sólo, o casi cualquier otra parte del cuerpo para la piel más suave y tonificada siquiera.
Al igual que la dermoabrasión y peelings químicos, tratamientos de la piel con láser ayudan a revitalizar la piel envejecida o dañada por el sol, revelando una piel más fresca y joven. Otros usos incluyen el tratamiento de las marcas de nacimiento, cicatrices de acné y lesiones vasculares. Moles, verrugas, pelo tatuajes, y el cuerpo no deseado puede también ser eliminado por tratamiento de la piel con láser.
Si bien estos procedimientos pueden todos parecen ser principalmente de naturaleza cosmética – más procedimiento belleza de procedimiento quirúrgico – se consideran quirúrgica, aunque menos invasiva que muchos otros procedimientos de cirugía cosmética. Hay riesgos reales involucrados que deben ser entendidos antes de comprometerse con el tratamiento. Por ejemplo, el uso excesivo de Botox o inyectarlo en el lugar equivocado puede resultar en una caída de la ceja o babeo. Si se sobreinyectado rellenos dérmicos, usted puede terminar con más aumento de lo que contabas, al menos temporalmente. Con ambos microdermoabrasión y las exfoliaciones químicas hay un riesgo de hiperpigmentación (manchas oscuras) de la piel. La infección, hematomas e hinchazón son todos los efectos secundarios temporales de cualquier procedimiento.
Para obtener los mejores resultados con su procedimiento estético no invasivo, consultar con uno o más cirujanos plásticos o los dermatólogos y asegúrese de que están capacitados y con experiencia en el tratamiento específico que le interese. Ellos deben ser capaces de evaluar su situación, responder a sus preguntas, exponer los riesgos y beneficios, y determinar si usted es un candidato viable para el procedimiento.
Los pacientes de primera vez pueden facilitar su camino en tratamientos cosméticos no invasivos solicitando uno de los rellenos temporales que duran hasta un año para “probar” los resultados. Comience con un enfoque conservador para asegurarse de que te gusta lo que ves, y muestra sólo un tratamiento a la vez para que pueda discernir lo que funciona y lo que no funciona en su caso particular.
