Are You Ready to Transform Your Skin? Join HGH for August Seminar

Are you ready to transform, rejuvenate and tighten your skin? Jeremy Hurst, FNP-C, can show you how.

Hurst will be the guest speaker at the August meeting of “Healthy Year, Healthy You.” This month’s presentation, “Laser and You: Renewed, Confident and Beautiful,” is scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, August 17, in the Sarah Winnemucca Conference Room.

Hurst and his team of laser experts began offering a full suite of skin services nearly two years ago following Humboldt General Hospital’s purchase of a new Sciton laser system.

This month, he will show seminar participants how to access the most reasonable and least invasive skin transformation treatments, just minutes from home.

“Whether you want to counteract the effects of aging, sun damage or environmental pollutants, we can help you reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and even eliminate scars,” said Hurst.

Patients may choose from ProFractional Therapy, a quick laser procedure with minimal downtime and permanent results, or Superficial Skin Resurfacing—sometimes referred to as “the weekend peel”—since most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within three to four days.

Hurst and his team also offer deeper skin resurfacing, which Hurst says is the best way to address the problematic lines around the eyes and mouth and chin. Complete healing depends on the depth of treatment, but typically patients can resume normal activities and wear makeup within a week.

Patients may also access Laser Skin Tightening, a minimally invasive procedure with no downtime, which tightens loose or sagging skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles on the face, neck and abdomen.

Additionally, Hurst and his team offer high-speed laser hair removal—for all types of skin—using either the Broad Band Light (IPL) system, or for darker skin types using the ClearScan laser.

Hurst said he is excited to share the possibilities with local residents. In fact, he is so impressed with the results that he carries before and after photos on his phone of those who have been willing to “test-drive” the equipment.

“Laser and You: Renewed, Confident and Beautiful,” is a free community presentation; lunch will be served, and both men and women are invited to attend.
