Laser Hair Removal on Ears
Avoid razors and waxing for a more durable hair removal method. Our powerful laser hair removal devices utilize energy to disable the targeted hair follicles for permanent smoothness. At Essential Aesthetics we provide men and women from all over the Bay Area with safe laser hair treatments.
Laser Hair Removal
If you’re tired of the painful, messy, and time-consuming traditional methods for hair removal, Essential Aesthetics has the solution for you. Laser hair treatment is non-invasive, which means it doesn’t break the skin in any way or damage surrounding tissue. It works by directing the laser beam into the hair follicle, where it is absorbed and damaged.
Laser Tattoo Removal
As the laser fires into the pigment, you will hear audible popping sounds followed by a feeling of heat over the general area of the skin. Afterward, there will be a whitish “frosting: over the tattoo as well as some swelling and mild redness. This is a natural reaction and should resolve within a few hours.
Microblading Eyebrow Removal
Our laser will provide the best outcome with minimal to no remaining cosmetic pigment. If your microblading procedure did not go as intended or if the shape of your brows has changed over time, removal can help you achieve a more natural appearance. By removing the microblading pigment, you can allow your natural eyebrows to regrow and reshape as you please.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Have an unwanted tattoo? Laser tattoo removal can help with that. Laser tattoo removal is a fascinating process. Since the inks used in tattooing are made of solid particles similar to pigmented lesions, they can likewise be targeted and eliminated by certain lasers. The depth of the pigments within the skin, type of ink, and color of ink all play a factor in how (or if) they can be removed.
Laser Tattoo Removal
This laser uses nanosecond pulses to shatter tattoo ink into small particles, which gradually become shallower until they fade. This technology utilizes a “Top-Hat” beam profile to minimize epidermal damage, tissue textural changes, and the occurrence of scarring. It is ideal for black, blue, and other dark tattoos.
Cosmetic Makeup Laser Tattoo Removal
Permanent tattoos that mimic makeup such as eyeliner or lipstick are referred to as cosmetic tattoos. Permanent makeup tattoos can be successfully treated with the nanosecond laser, but they do come with their own set of challenges. These tattoos contain metal particles that may not react well with lasers. For this reason, our experienced provider, Dr. Ellie Zarnegar, always tests a small spot first to evaluate the reaction and determine if the treatment is right for you.This laser uses nanosecond pulses to shatter tattoo ink into small particles, which gradually become shallower until they fade.
Hyperpigmentation Treatment with PiQo4 Laser

It is the only laser on the market suitable for all skin tones, including darker skin tones, and offers a high power output and large spot size for effective treatment.
Cosmetic Tattoo Removal
Permanent makeup became popular back in the 70s to enhance the color and thickness of the brows. However, as time goes on, trends begin to change and so does our taste. This patient has had her eyebrows tattooed multiple times over the years and wanted them removed. Our tattoo removal device shatters the ink into small particles that your body naturally gets rid of.

Resurfacing treatments are fast and comfortable while delivering noticeable results.
Acne Scarring Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

The treatment is practically painless making it ideal for younger patients who might have fears around treatments for their acne.
RF Skin Tightening for Buttocks
Non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by heating deeper skin layers with targeted energy, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and progressively improves skin tone and texture. This treatment also affects fibrous tissue to reduce cellulite's appearance.
Non-Surgical Treatment for Saggy Arms

Juvéderm Lip Filler
For the caption it will say: "When it comes to adding volume and definition to the lips, Juvéderm is one of the fillers that is utilized most frequently. This treatment is successful for the majority of patients due to the soft consistency of the filler and the fact that it is composed of hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that is found in the human body naturally. Because this sugar combination has a high capacity for drawing and keeping water, it is an excellent choice for naturally enhancing the appearance of fuller lips.
Sculptra Buttocks Enhancement
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to target areas under the skin, stimulate deep collagen growth, and create volume. At Essential Aesthetics, we offer Sculptra as a butt enhancement filler — to firm and create a natural fullness to the buttocks.
Tear Trough Correction
Are you tired of looking tired? A sunken or hollow look of the tear troughs (the inner portion of the lower eyelid) is a genetic trait or can begin to show as we age. With the help of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers such as Juvederm Ultra, the area can be plumped up to reduce the appearance of dark circles.
Kybella Treatment for double chin
Submental fullness, also known as a "double chin", is the accumulation of fat under the skin beneath the jawline. Age, genetics, and weight gain play a major role in submental fullness development. Even those with healthy and active lifestyle may have a double chin, affecting their self-esteem and overall appearance.
Nasal Tip Lift
Lift of the nasal tip is achievable with botulinum toxin injections placed right under the nasal septum. It is possible to reshape a drooping nasal tip using Botox injections. The nerve signals that cause a muscle to contract are prevented by Botox. By injecting Botox into the depressor septi nasi muscle near the nose's base, the nose's tip can be lifted ever-so-slightly.
Frontalis botox injections
Patients who are male often have facial muscles that are larger and stronger, and as a result, they require higher doses. It is possible to inject the frontalis either intramuscularly or superficially, just under the surface of the skin and immediately above the subcutaneous tissues.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
Bruxism, also known as TMJ disorder, can lead to headaches, bite problems, ear pain, stiffness, clicking, and a locked jaw. BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport temporarily weaken these muscles, making them unable to engage in the powerful and unconscious movement of the jaw that produces pain. Since this disorder is a part of your normal function the treatment doesn’t affect speaking, swallowing, or biting.
Managing Masseter Muscle Hypertrophy with Botox
Masseter hypertrophy (MH) is a rare condition that can cause aesthetic and functional issues. It can affect one side or both of the muscles. Gum chewing, clenching, and/or bruxism are the most prevalent causative factors that are associated with MH. In addition to conservative management, surgical resection of the enlarged muscle and/or bone is used to treat MH. Botox or Dysport injection is a relatively new, minimally invasive method for the treatment of masseter muscle hypertrophy that offers numerous advantages over conventional surgical treatment.
Botox Treatment for TMJ
TMJ disorders can also cause the masseter muscles to expand and become larger, changing the shape of the face. Since BOTOX® and Dysport® treatments cause the muscles to relax, the size of the muscle also begins to shrink, giving you a more defined jawline.One of the advantages of using neuromodulators as a treatment for TMJ disorders is that normal functions such as speaking, swallowing, and biting are not affected
Botox for Forehead
Botox cosmetics treat dynamic wrinkles, which form from repeatedly making facial expressions such as smiling, squinting, or laughing. As we age and lose elasticity, these lines become static wrinkles that show regardless of facial expression. Botox injections for the forehead can help to smooth fine lines and relax the muscles that cause these wrinkles to form.
Botox and Dermal FIller Combination Treatments
Healthy, effective, doses of Botox begin between 60-80 units for optimal results and the units are spread across the top of the forehead, the crows' feet area of the eyes, the brow line, and between the eyes. Results begin to become noticeable 2-4 weeks after receiving the treatment.
Micro-Botox for Acne
Micro-Botox (also known as Meso-Botox or intradermal Botox) is the injection of neuromodulators such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® into the inner layer of the skin to treat skin crepiness, rosacea, acne, oil production, and much more. For those with large pores and oily skin, Meso-Botox causes them to shrink, making the skin smoother, clearer, and less oily.
Prejuvenate with Botox
Wrinkles are caused by repetitive folding of the skin that occurs when we show facial expressions. Slow down the aging process with neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport which work to weaken the muscles that create wrinkles like the 11 lines between the eyebrows and the crow’s feet.
Botox Treatment for Crow's Feet and TMJ
Treatment of the crow's feet with Botox not only helps the muscles surrounding your eyes to relax but also gives them a brighter and more open appearance. Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, can be also be treated with Botox. Neuromodulators relax the jaw muscle which helps eliminate headaches caused by nighttime grinding, minimizes lockjaw, and reduces the discomfort of jaw tension.
PRP for Hair Restoration
How does PRP for hair restoration work? Our blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets which are suspended in a liquid called plasma. Platelets are nutrient-rich and contain growth factors that help promote tissue regeneration and healing. When these platelets are injected into the scalp, it helps to stimulate the hair follicles into an active growth phase.
Skin Lesion Removal on neck
Even though they are harmless, skin tags can be irritating, particularly when they rub against clothing or get caught on jewelry. These benign skin lesions are composed of normal skin tissue and fat. They frequently appear on the neck, beneath the breasts, in the underarm, and in other rubbing areas.
Face Lesion Removal
Patients from Danville and other areas frequently seek treatment for moles, blemishes, and discoloration. Some are dissatisfied with their appearance, while others experience physical discomfort when they rub against apparel. Dr. Ellie Zarnegar and the advanced techniques utilized by Essential Aesthetics make the removal of these irregularities a relatively simple and straightforward procedure.

Common benign skin growths often appear to arise for no apparent reason. We treat the following conditions at Essential Aesthetics: Xanthelasma, Seborrheic Keratosis, and Skin Tags. Depending on the type of lesion, Dr. Ellie will devise a treatment plan to suit your specific needs.
Skin Lesion Removal
Although harmless, skin tags can be annoying, especially when they rub against clothing and get caught in jewelry. These skin lesions are benign and made of normal skin tissue and fat. They often develop on the neck, beneath the breasts, the armpits, and in other areas where skin rubs together.
Face Lesion Removal
Patients can rely on Essential Aesthetics' Electrodessication to eradicate skin growths and imperfections. Sebaceous hyperplasia, cherry angiomas, seborrheic keratoses, skin tags, and brown spots can be removed with electrodessication, a fast and simple technique that utilizes an electrical current.
Hydrafacial Keravive Hair Treatment
How does Keravive work? Keravive consists of three primary stages, similar to the Hydrafacial treatments you administer to the face and body.
Purify: Using mild suction and exfoliation to stimulate and open hair follicles
Nourish: Infuses peptides and hydration into the follicles and surrounding skin after cleansing.
Enhance: A daily peptide application promotes natural hair growth.
Microneedling for Cellulite
Cellulite is caused when fat in certain areas of the body pushes through bands of connective tissue, giving the skin bumps and dimples. Lifestyle changes such as exercising, following a healthy diet, not smoking, and using topical creams such as retinol can be used to lessen the appearance of cellulite. At Essential Aesthetics, we offer microneedling for unwanted cellulite to help you regain your confidence!
Skin Revitalizing Facial
Diamond Glow is one of the greatest treatments because it effectively exfoliates and leaves the skin looking great. One of the advantages of this treatment is that you can see all of the debris and oil that was extracted from your pores during the treatment, which is not only oddly satisfying but also gives you insight into whether or not your regular exfoliation routine is effective.
Gentlemen Diamondglow Facial
Men also requires self-love. If shaving is a daily routine for you, you've probably experienced irritation, razor burn, and ingrown hairs at some point. Fortunately, exfoliation is a vital aspect of a men's facial treatment, as it not only removes dead skin cells but also releases ingrown hairs. This results in a more comfortable shaving experience as well as epidermis that is healthy and youthful-looking.
DiamondGlow treatment for Rosacea
How does Diamondglow work? DiamondGlow is a skin rejuvenation treatment similar to Hydrafacial, but it uses a different device and technique. The treatment uses a patented diamond-tip wand that exfoliates the skin, removes impurities, and infuses the skin with specialized serums.
