Laser hair removal has been around for a number of years and both men and women use this long-lasting technique for a number of different reasons. While there are many different ways to rid your body of unwanted hair, such as shaving or waxing, these options are not as effective as laser hair removal.

Unwanted hair growth appears on many areas of both men and women. Women may have problems with unwanted facial hair such as growth on their chins, eyebrow area, and upper lip and other areas like knuckles and toes. Men will also use laser hair removal for eyebrows but also for thick or excessive hair growth on their chest, backs, and necks. Tweezing and waxing can be impractical for these areas can cause other concerns.

Razors can leave your skin red, burning, sore, itchy and scratched. It can also cause bumps or ingrown hair. You should also avoid using any products that will dry out recently shaved skin to avoid itchiness.

Waxing can cause your skin to react and become red or inflamed. It is not uncommon to experience a breakout of pimples after waxing. Other common side effects of waxing include red bumps, pain, change in skin color, bruising, and having skin removed.

Laser hair removal is most effective when the hair is actively growing, in the anagen phase. Laser hair removal works when a concentrated beam of light is aimed at the follicle and converts this energy into heat to heat up the hair follicle and prevents any further growth. The other benefits include the fact it is fast, safe, and effective. The fact that it is by far the most precise method of hair removal there is.

By far the most superior method to rid your body of unwanted hair, laser hair removal provides multiple benefits to both men and women.

As we age, it is expected to see the crow’s feet appear and the laugh lines to start showing up even when we are not laughing. Our skin loses its natural elasticity as we mature and when you throw in the effects of gravity, it results in our skin starting to sag. Dr. Mauricio de Maio, a plastic surgeon from Brazil, came up with a procedure that is a set of guidelines designed to assist in specific areas of the face. It consists of aesthetic procedures that are capable of providing a more youthful appearance.


The procedure is based around eight injection sites to lift and achieve a return to the more youthful shape of the face. There even is an effect on neck sagging as the sides of the face are lifted. Each individual is different and treatment should be based on personal characteristics. The MD Codes™ are a series of formulated injection points that target the whole face. The main areas of focus are the temples, the brow, cheeks, under eye, chin, jawline and lips.

It does not require general anesthesia and leaves no scars. Because there is little to no downtime, you can have the procedure done and be running your errands afterward. The MD Codes™ system effectively creates a facelift without the surgical complications and expense. The hylacross natural fill can last several years.

Dr. Bakken was one of an exclusive group of physicians that was invited to attend Allergan’s training sessions with Dr. de Maio in Toronto, February 2017.

What does all this mean for you, the patient?


This technique of assessing at how facial aging can be treated focuses on the whole face rather than just isolated areas. It helps the physician that performs the procedure to identify the right treatment points and techniques that will deliver the most effective and natural-looking results while lifting and volumizing deflated areas, in as little as one to two sessions.


It is the next step forward in the right direction for treating the signs of facial aging without compromising the shape of the face.
