While most of us use mascara, false eyelashes or eyelash extensions in order to define our eyes and improve our appearance, not all of us would say that we feel satisfied with these approaches. We want to improve our appearance, but some solutions do not always offer the most satisfying results. If you want a more effective and long-lasting approach to longer eyelashes, consider Latisse® at our medical spa in RI.
Mascara, false eyelashes and eyelash extensions definitely have their challenges. If you use normal mascara, you know how much it will run if you start to cry or get caught in the rain. On the opposite side of the spectrum, if you have ever used waterproof mascara, you know how challenging it is to remove it. Dealing with false eyelashes or eyelash extensions can be a challenge because it is very difficult to make them look natural. If you would like to define your eyes with longer and darker eyelashes but are tired of the treatments mentioned above, Latisse® provided at our RI med spa may be right for you.
More and more people are using Latisse® because of the amazing results it offers. This is a medication that is used to help you grow eyelashes that are naturally longer, darker and thicker. We usually use mascara and false eyelashes to achieve these goals. However, Latisse® lets you grow gorgeous lashes that are all your own.
The first thing that you should know about this popular product is that it is a medication that needs to be prescribed by a doctor. It is not something that you can just purchase over-the-counter at a drugstore. And it is not something that can be given to you at a day spa. You need to visit us and have a consultation with one of our medical professionals. Then you will be given exact instructions on how to use the product.
Latisse® is applied along the upper lash line. Just a small amount of the product is applied one time per day, usually at night. It must be applied to eyelashes that are clean and free of mascara and any other type of eye makeup. A one-time applicator is used each time to apply the product. It is not applied along the lower lash line since the solution will be transferred to this area every time you blink or close your eyes.
Medical professionals do not yet fully understand why Latisse® works. However, they do know that it helps to extend the growing cycle of the eyelashes. It also encourages more eyelashes to grow during the active growth cycle. These two things help those who use the product to grow eyelashes that are darker and thicker. After a couple of months of using the product, you will get to enjoy much more defined eyes and longer lashes.
If you have eyelashes that are thin and light and are tired of using mascara and other cosmetic products to enhance your eyelashes, you will be happy to know that we are proudly offering Latisse® at SeaMist MedSpa, located in South Kingston, RI. Please contact us to schedule your consultation.
If you have acne that is not responding to other treatments you have tried, you might want to learn more information about laser acne treatment. Since acne can affect individuals differently, you should waste no time getting professional help if your acne cannot be controlled in a timely manner. Acne can vary in types as well with some types having more potential for long-lasting effects than others.
Comedonal acne is the basic type that consists of pimples, blackheads and white heads. Since it is difficult for untrained individuals to distinguish one type of acne from another, it is important to seek help sooner rather than later when the acne does not respond fairly quickly to these measures. Acne that is stubborn about going away may be that of a more serious type.
Inflammatory acne is more serious than the basic comedonal acne. It can be accompanied by redness and discomforts such as itching and burning. If it is allowed to progress, it can develop into cystic acne. This is acne that has become infected. Cystic acne has a high likelihood for leaving permanent scarring if it is not treated promptly with the appropriate acne treatment.
Laser acne treatment may be an effective way for you to control your acne. Our specialist can give you more detail on how it may benefit you. Your condition can be evaluated. This will include checking your skin type and the acne itself. Our experienced provider is your best source for making this determination.
Laser acne treatment can help for a number of reasons. One thing it can do is eliminate the bacteria that may be contributing to acne development. It works by damaging the bacteria wall, effectively killing it. The light from the laser will penetrate the surface of the skin and reach the bacteria at its source.
Another benefit of laser acne treatment is a reduction in the amount of skin oil. This is because excessive amounts of oil are known to contribute to the severity and rate of acne occurrence.
The best way to prevent acne scarring is to seek professional acne treatment before the condition has the chance to reach that level. Our skin care expert at SeaMist MedSpa is your best source of information regarding the benefits of laser acne treatment. Contact us today to schedule a consultation at our office in South Kingstown!
Most people would agree that they would love to have gorgeous eyelashes. Some individuals are born with beautiful lashes. But most of us were not so lucky. One of the most popular options that is currently used today for eyelash enhancement is mascara. But this makeup product has its drawbacks. Other options include false eyelashes and eyelash extensions. However, these also have several drawbacks. If you truly want longer, fuller, and darker lashes, you should learn more information about Latisse®.
You may or may not have heard about Latisse®. Either way, it is one of the most effective ways for you to get gorgeous lashes that are all your own. This is a medication that is used to help you grow naturally beautiful eyelashes. But how and why does it work?
The truth is that scientists and medical professionals do not completely understand why exactly Latisse® works. However, they have seen that the product is able to extend the natural growing period that your eyelashes go through. Another benefit is that it helps to increase the amount of eyelashes that grow during a growth cycle. This results in longer, fuller lashes.
The interesting thing about Latisse® is that it was originally used in eye drops that were designed for individuals who had glaucoma. Doctors and patients noticed that one of the side effects individuals who used the product experienced was longer, darker eyelashes. Of course, most people did not think this was a negative side effect. Not long after noticing this, Latisse® appeared on the market in its current form. It has been FDA-approved, so you can be sure it is both safe and effective.
This is not a product that you can just purchase at your local drugstore. You have to visit a qualified medical professional for a consultation and then have the product prescribed to you. This is extremely important. During your consultation, we will examine your eyes and eyelashes as well as other aspects of your health to be sure that you are a good match for the product.
If it is determined that Latisse® is the best way for you to get gorgeous lashes, we will give you detailed instructions on how to use the product. After you have used the product consistently, you will start to see that your eyelashes become darker, thicker, and longer. You will be able to achieve naturally gorgeous eyelashes.

The most common visual signs of aging on the face are fine wrinkles and smile lines, depressions in the skin, and a dull appearance caused by skin that is too thin. Dermal fillers can add volume and smooth out the skin surface by attracting and holding moisture. These fillers are in the form of a gel containing hyaluronic acid. The acid is present naturally in the body, but as we age and mature, we don’t have as much of it in our system. Acid fillers concentrate in the region just beneath the skin and literally plump the surface. We highly recommend Restylane® as the dermal filler of choice for those who desire a smoother skin surface on the face.
Candidates For Restylane®
Restylane® is safe for use unless the individual has known allergic reactions to certain gel compounds or concentrated amounts of hyaluronic acid. The ideal candidate is a mature adult experiencing crow’s feet, smile lines, and enlarged nasolabial folds. These can be corrected with surgery, but many of our clients simply aren’t ready to go under the knife. Restylane® can provide the necessary volume without the need for surgery.
Restylane® won’t diminish the appearance of darkened regions, freckles, or age spots. However, it will minimize the appearance of small, dynamic wrinkles as well as creases near the mouth. It can also help add volume to the lips. In fact, one particular type of Restylane® is specially formulated as a lip filler.
Consultation and Treatment
When we consult with the client, we observe the areas of concern and note the thickness of the skin, the amount of moisture that acts as cushioning support, and whether the wrinkles are dynamic or set. We administer the treatment in specific dosage.
The injection sites are chosen carefully. The hyaluronic acid begins to draw in moisture immediately. Water molecules tend to stick together, so any moisture that the acid attracts will soon increase in volume.
The Restylane® itself is eventually distributed throughout the body, but the added volume continues because the water retention isn’t lessened over the next few months.
Advantages and Benefits
This is a popular treatment method because it doesn’t involve surgery, requires no downtime for the client, and is repeatable on a regular basis. It’s the perfect way to smooth the skin without the need for abrasive resurfacing or chemical peel treatment.
Take Years Off Your Appearance
Restylane® isn’t a magical gel, but it does what normal skin care can’t. It actually adds volume where it is needed most, and it does so without the need for any invasive form of treatment. Contact us today at SeaMist MedSpa in South Kingstown to learn more and to schedule your personal consultation.
Any time you are thinking about using a cosmetic treatment, or making any decision for that matter, it is always a good idea for you to look at all the advantages and the disadvantages. Once you know all of the facts about the thing you are interested in, you will be able to make the right choice for you.
Laser hair removal is a treatment that is becoming more and more popular. It is one of the best ways for you to get rid of one unwanted hair on your body. Below we will consider some of the advantages of laser hair removal.
Are you strapped for time? Or do you simply hate how long it takes for you to get rid of unwanted hair on your body? Unfortunately, using waxing kits, razors, and other manual hair removal techniques is extremely time-consuming. When you are starting your day off and getting ready to head out for work or whatever other activities you have planned for the day, you often have to think about getting rid of unwanted hair. If you want to wear a skirt, you have to make sure that you do not have hair on your legs. If you are thinking about wearing a tank top or swimsuit, the last thing you want is for people to see armpit hair. The same idea is true of hair on your face, back, chest, and in many other places. Laser hair removal saves you a ton of time.
Are you tired of spending a lot of money on manual hair removal? If so, laser hair removal can also save you money. This is especially the case when you look at it over the long term. Have ever calculated how much money you spend on waxing kits, razors, shaving cream, tweezers, and other items? When you just start to calculate how much you have spent in the last couple of months, it is very likely that the number is pretty high. If you are interested in saving money, laser hair removal is the most cost-effective hair removal option.
Laser hair removal produces satisfying results. After a couple of treatment sessions with us, you will feel very happy with the results that you see. You’re not going to deal with the same skin irritation and ingrown hairs that you had to deal with when using other manual hair removal treatments.
No one out there would say that having dark circles under the eyes is an attractive feature. When you have dark circles under your eyes, you look exhausted. You look like you can’t handle anything else and need a week’s worth of rest. In some cases, it may be possible for a person to improve their appearance and get rid of dark circles under the eyes with some much-needed rest. However, if these dark circles under your eyes are the result of the aging process and the changes that have taken place in your skin and facial fat, no amount of rest is going to help the problem.
In addition to the fact that having dark circles under your eyes makes you look unattractive, it can also have a negative impact on your life in other areas. Think of an individual who is looking to make advancements in their career. Because of the aging process and the way their skin and face have changed over the years, they have dark circles under their eyes. This individual’s boss may be interested in promoting someone in the company. Who are they going to choose? They’re going to choose someone who looks like they can handle more responsibility and is energetic. You may actually be ready for more responsibility and have plenty of energy. However, your appearance is not telling others that. Not only can this affect your professional life, but it can also affect your personal life.
So, what can be done in order to help with dark circles under the eyes? One of the best ways to do this in a non-surgical way is to use a dermal filler. Dermal fillers can very gently and skillfully be injected into the area under the eyes in order to add more volume to this area. When more volume is added to the area, the shadow is no longer going to be cast on this area of your upper face, which means that it will not have as much of the dark color.
The great thing about using dermal fillers for the area under the eyes is that you get long-lasting results, but the treatment is not permanent. So, you can use the treatment in order to see if you like the way you look without the dark circles. If you like the way that you look after treatment, you can return to our office in order to have touch-up treatments in the future.
Most dermal fillers contain substances that are going to benefit your skin. They are going to help your skin look younger, look hydrated and looked refreshed. All of these things are not only going to help you in your professional life, but they are also going to help you in your personal life. And when you look in the mirror, you are going to like what you see.
During a consultation at SeaMist MedSpa, you can learn more about how dermal fillers and other treatments can be used to address dark circles under the eyes. We also offer peels, laser treatments and eye serums for the condition. Contact us today to schedule an appointment at our office in South Kingstown!
BOTOX® is one of the most effective cosmetic treatments for wrinkled facial skin. Most adults begin to experience dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles that form when the facial muscles are contracted. The relaxing or pulling of the skin surface causes the formation smile lines and crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes and mouth. Thinning skin that is no longer retaining moisture and has less collagen is more easily wrinkled, and the appearance of these smile lines can have a negative effect on one’s appearance. No surgery, no chemical peels and no abrasive resurfacing are involved.
Benefits of BOTOX®
Botox doesn’t treat the skin directly. Rather, it inhibits transmission of signals from the nerve endings to the upper-level facial muscles. This means that smoothing of the skin surface is realized without the need for surgery or any sort of skin repositioning.
Another benefit of this treatment is that it actually trains the muscles to stay relaxed. The effect of BOTOX® lasts for anywhere up to six months. During this time, the facial muscles that control our appearance when we smile or frown never contract fully. Subsequent treatments typically use less of the fluid because the muscles stay in a relaxed state.
BOTOX® doesn’t paralyze the muscles or deaden the nerve endings in the skin. This means that the individual won’t be overcome by a feeling of numbness, and it’s just as easy to frown, smile and laugh as it was before the treatment was administered. The only difference is that these expressions won’t result in wrinkles.
How It Works
We always consult with our client before administering this treatment. We look at the face closely and note the appearance of dynamic wrinkles when certain facial expressions are made. This helps us determine the best injection sites and the best amount of solution to use for the treatment.
BOTOX® is injected just beneath the skin and directly into the upper-level muscle tissues. The treatment begins to work almost immediately, so you may see some results just after receiving your injections. However, the real results show themselves in the following days. After a few days, clients notice that the skin around the mouth or eyes no longer wrinkles when smiling or frowning occurs. This effect alone can make the individual look much younger.
Injections can be repeated at regular intervals. If you are in generally good health, you will likely make a good candidate for this treatment.

BOTOX® is so popular for one simple reason: it works. You can look younger without undergoing surgery or abrasive skin resurfacing treatments. We are pleased to offer this treatment at SeaMist MedSpa in South Kingston. Get rid of those annoying dynamic wrinkles and smile lines in just minutes.

Acne is a common skin problem caused by overactive oil glands. While the skin does need oil to lubricate it, the oil can sometimes get trapped in blocked ducts and thereby cause acne to develop. There are many treatments for this condition, and laser acne treatment is one of the most effective.
Benefits of Acne Laser Treatment
Acne laser treatment can both cure active acne and remove acne scars. The laser emits short pulses of energy, which stimulate the body’s healing processes that remove the scar tissue. It also boosts the production of new collagen that makes healthy new tissue. A laser treatment for acne scars can take less than 40 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Different types of lasers are available both for treating acne and removing acne scars. The three main types of lasers used in acne treatments are Potassium Titanyl Phosphate Laser (KTP), Pulsed-dye Laser (PDL) and infrared. They emit lasers of different wavelengths that penetrate the skin at different depths.
Depending on the type of laser used, acne laser treatment can either destroy the oil glands producing the excess oil, or it can kill the bacteria that cause acne. Laser treatments can also heal the inflammation some types of acne cause.
Acne laser treatment works on many types of acne ranging from mild to severe. Dermatologists can combine different types of laser treatments to help patients with severe acne.
Acne laser treatments are non-invasive and can help patients with sensitive skin. The lasers go beneath the skin to attack the bacteria and/or oil glands. They therefore don’t damage the skin’s surface and are thus a good treatment for people who scar easily. They also provide a safe and effective treatment for people who are allergic to chemicals.
Laser treatments don’t hurt; the worst the patient will feel is a slight stinging sensation. While most patients won’t need an anesthetic, the more sensitive can apply a topical analgesic before treatment.
Laser treatments cause fewer and less severe side effects than do other treatments. The most common side effects associated with laser treatments are swelling and redness, which are normal and will quickly fade. Treatments like dermabrasion or chemical peels can cause side effects such as blisters or discoloration. Since these treatments involve removing the top layer of the skin, they can also result in infection.
Laser treatments can kill the bacteria that cause acne, so the patient won’t have to take any antibiotics. Acne laser treatment also works quickly; the patient will typically start to see results after two weeks of treatment. The increased collagen production caused by the treatments will help prevent further acne outbreaks.
Laser treatments even save the patient money over time. The effects of laser treatments last longer than many other treatments, so the patient will not have to spend money on antibiotics or medicated skin creams.
