Ingrown hairs are the result of using most common hair removing methods. As all of us need to get rid of extra hairs from our faces and bodies, we typically either shave or wax them away. As a result, we all experience the ingrown hair problem. The ingrown hairs are basically hairs cut too close to the skin that they fail to regrow in a straight and outward direction. Instead, they curl and grow inwards. This result in bumps in the skin, more often called razor bumps which are actually these are ingrown hair trapped under the skin surface. Continue reading

In its optimum state, our skin shields us from the elements in the form of a living, seamless robe. But trauma, such as rapid stretching of the epidermis during growth or weight-gain, or increased blood volume within the delicate blood vessels just beneath the dermis, may cause this exquisite, living fabric to seem less than flawless. Common conditions such as stretch marks and spider veins may become the focus of unwelcome attention.
Simon Ourian, M.D., a leader in non-invasive skin therapies, says, “It’s all about the integrity of the skin. Integrity literally means that all of the elements join together to form a cohesive whole. When there is trauma, we experience disintegration—some of the elements separate, and we lose the original unity. My practice is dedicated to restoring the integrity of the skin, by allowing it to heal and balance itself.”
Although stretch marks and spider veins are purely cosmetic complaints, causing no risk to the health of the individual, Dr. Ourian comments that modern technology now makes it possible for individuals to enjoy flawless skin with virtually painless, non-intrusive therapies. Inspired to correct these and other common conditions, Dr. Ourian developed the revolutionary Coolbeam laser technique, which addresses the superficial surface distress of stretch marks and the Bluelight laser to address thread-like, blue or red congestion of telangiectasias, or spider veins.
The Bluelight laser pulses light through the skin to the blood vessel, raising its internal temperature and safely coagulating it. Over time, the treated vessel fades and slowly disappears. This approach is especially well-suited for treating acne rosacea, a vascular-based disorder which currently is an increasing phenomenon among American adults.
Dr. Ourian’s Bluelight laser technique also may be the ideal treatment for the vascular distress which may develop in response to sun exposure, cold, or other environmental factors. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation may also result in persistent flushing of the face which may be safely addressed by laser therapy. For the treatment of larger varicose veins which may become visible as the result of pregnancy, obesity or years of a sedentary lifestyle, Dr. Ourian may recommend sclerotherapy or treatment by venous injection.
This technique utilizes a superfine needle to administer a compound which safely closes off the vessel, eventually making it invisible to the naked eye. Stretch marks may appear as the result of pregnancy or other sudden weight gain, as well as other growth factors, and affects men and teens as well as expectant moms. Initially, the stretch marks appear red, and are best treated as early in their appearance as possible for optimum results.
Later, stretch marks turn silvery or white, and become less responsive to treatment. However, laser treatment still may be successful for diminishing this condition commonly found on the soft tissue of the bust line, tummy, torso and upper arms. Once the damaged skin is removed, new skin quickly grows in its place. The Coolbeam laser, combined with a device that simultaneously cools the skin, makes the treatment far more comfortable than earlier laser procedures.
“Keeping the skin vital and refreshed is absolutely an option for everyone, at every age, ” says Dr. Ourian. “Our human skin truly is a wonder, and we are dedicated to preserving its health, its integrity, and its beauty through the most advanced technologies and treatments available in the world of medicine today.”
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, October 22, 2010 — Patients with severe acne scars often resort to multiple treatments, but seeing only minimal results, start to suffer from a low self-image. Coolaser Laser Resurfacing, a technique developed by Dr. Simon Ourian of Epione Medical Corporation in Beverly Hills, is a highly effective treatment used by many individuals to restore clear skin and eliminate unsightly acne scars.
Dr. Ourian’s Coolaser technology is a highly individualized process, with a treatment regime customized for each patient. “Facial acne scars affect everybody differently, ” said Dr. Ourian, medical director at Epione Medical. “That’s why over-the-counter treatments often don’t measure up. A big part of our procedure is taking into account your own situation, and deciding what’s best for you. I developed the Coolaser technique to achieve positive, long-lasting results, leaving you with clear, smooth skin.”
Coolaser decreases the level of comfort patients experience by means of cooling the skin throughout the course of the treatment. Light pulses are projected onto the affected skin surface, and when the skin absorbs that light energy, the blemishes vaporize, one microscopic layer at a time. This approach allows the physician to retain precise control over treatment. The cooling makes the procedure much more comfortable than other types of laser treatments and microdermabrasion, and there is typically no long recovery period required.
When necessary, Dr. Ourian will augment the Coolaser treatment with dermal filler injections. Coolaser in effect “sands down” the surface of the skin and injectable products such as Radiesse, Juvéderm and Restylane literally plump up the depressions in the skin caused by acne scars.

Dr. Ourian’s Coolaser acne scar treatment has provided welcome relief to many patients, who not only appreciate the highly effective treatment, but also the excellent service and accommodating staff. “I love coming to Epione. I feel like I’m at a five star hotel! Everyone has a smile on their face and I love that, ” said one of Dr. Ourian’s patients. Another related, “Since I don’t live in L.A., I really appreciate Epione, and it’s always a relief to leave L.A. looking younger.”
Patients with all skin types and skin tones can benefit from the Coolaser treatment. Patients enjoy the spa-like atmosphere of the Epione Medical Center, and most patients report that the Coolaser procedure is relatively pain-free. The treatment is designed to be very precise, and targeted only at the affected areas—and the results are dramatic, with many patients reporting results beyond their expectations.
