Everything You Wanted To Know About Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted facial and body hair can have an impact on how we feel, how we interact with others, what we wear, and what we do. Shaving, plucking, bleaching and epilation using a device that pulls out multiple hairs at once are all options for concealing or removing unwanted hair. Electrolysis, which uses an electrical current to destroy individual hair follicles, and laser therapy are longer-term options. So, what exactly is laser hair removal? What can it accomplish? And what are the negative consequences? How does laser therapy work? Lasers emit a single wavelength of light in a single colour. The energy from the light is transferred to the skin and hair pigment melanin when it is directed at the skin. This causes the surrounding tissue to heat up and become damaged. However, in order to remove hair permanently while causing the least amount of damage to the surrounding tissue, the laser must be directed at specific cells. These are the hair follicle stem cells, which are located in the hair bulge. People are carefully shaved before treatment because the skin surface contains melanin, which we want to avoid damaging. Will it be effective in permanently removing hair? Laser treatment can permanently reduce hair density or permanently remove unwanted hair. Because permanent hair density reduction means that some hairs will regrow after a single course of therapy, patients will require ongoing laser treatment. Permanent hair removal means that no hairs in the treated area will regrow after a single course of therapy, and there is no need for ongoing laser therapy. The following factors influence whether hair is permanently removed or simply reduced in density: the colour and thickness of the treated hairs the colour of the patient's skin the type and quality of the laser used and the competence and training of the laser operator However, if you have grey hairs that lack melanin pigmentation, current lasers will not work. What number of treatments will I require? The number of treatments required is determined by your Fitzpatrick skin type. This categorises your skin based on its colour, sun sensitivity, and proclivity to tan. Skin that is pale or white, burns easily, and rarely tans (Fitzpatrick types 1 and 2) With 4-6 treatments every 4-6 weeks, people with dark hair can usually achieve permanent hair removal. People with fair hair will generally only achieve permanent hair reduction, and after an initial course of treatment, they may require 6-12 monthly treatments. Light brown skin that occasionally burns and gradually tans to light brown (type 3) With 6-10 treatments every 4-6 weeks, people with dark hair can usually achieve permanent hair removal. People with fair hair will usually only achieve permanent hair reduction, and after an initial course of treatment, they may require 3-6 monthly follow-up treatments. Moderate brown to dark brown skin that rarely burns and tans well (type 4 and 5) With 6-10 treatments every 4-6 weeks, people with dark hair can usually achieve permanent hair reduction. 3-6 monthly repeat treatments are usually required for maintenance. People with light-colored hair are unlikely to respond. Re-treatments must be spaced far enough apart to allow new hair growth to reach the bulge's level. What complications or side effects should I be aware of? To protect your eyes, you will be advised to wear goggles during treatment. You will also feel some discomfort during treatment, especially during the first few sessions. This is primarily due to not removing all hair in the treatment area prior to the procedure. Hairs that are not shaved absorb laser energy and heat the skin's surface. Repeat treatments at regular intervals reduce pain. After laser treatment, your skin will feel hot for 15-30 minutes. For up to 24 hours, there may be redness and swelling. Does the type of laser make a difference? The type of laser influences not only how well it works, but also your risk of side effects. Long-pulse ruby lasers, long-pulse alexandrite lasers, long-pulse diode lasers, and long-pulse Nd:YAG lasers are all suitable for hair removal. Intense pulsed light (IPL) devices are not lasers, but rather flash lamps that emit multiple wavebands of light at the same time. They function similarly to lasers, albeit less effectively, and have a much lower chance of permanently removing hair. To reduce the risk of damaging melanin-producing cells on the skin's surface, the laser used and how it is used can be tailored to your skin type. People with fair skin and dark hair can use an IPL device, an alexandrite laser, or a diode laser; those with dark skin and dark hair can use a Nd:YAG or diode laser; and those with blond or red hair can use a diode laser. Short laser pulses are used to control the spread of heat and unwanted tissue damage. The laser's energy is also adjusted: it must be strong enough to damage the bulge cells but not so strong that it causes discomfort or burns. Can I do it myself if I buy a home laser device? Home laser devices and IPL home devices range in price from $200 to $1,000. However, they do not work as well and must be used on a regular basis to maintain hair reduction. Only people with fair skin (Fitzpatrick types 1 and 2) and dark hair have their parameters set. Energy settings are limited for safety reasons. Complications may still arise in inexperienced hands. This includes skin pigmentation changes, burns, pain, and blistering. Medical grade lasers, on the other hand, must be registered with the government's regulatory agency, the Therapeutic Goods Administration. There are also national and state-based regulations governing the facility where the laser is used, as well as mandatory laser safety training and state-based qualifications and licencing for laser operators. As a result, a safe and regulated laser in the hands of a skilled dermatologist is advised. When should you see your doctor? Excess hair is not always a cause for concern. However, severe hirsuitism or excessive growth of dark and coarse hair over areas of the body where it would not normally grow or hypertrichosis excess hair growth for someone's age, sex, or race can be indicators of underlying illness. Extra androgen hormones can cause hirsutism, especially if it is accompanied by symptoms such as irregular periods or acne. Later in life, hypertrichosis can be a sign of cancer. Your dermatologist can look into these.
Why You Need A Niacinamide Serum? And How To Use It.
Niacinamide may not get as much attention as retinol and vitamin C, but it is a skincare powerhouse that deserves equal recognition. It is the definition of a multitasker, offering a host of distinct benefits that make it a good choice for a wide range of skin types and complexion issues. However, incorporating it into your current skincare routine might sound difficult. Is it OK to use niacinamide along with vitamin C and/or retinol? Is hyaluronic acid a viable alternative? We weigh in on everything you need to know about using niacinamide. What is niacinamide, exactly? Simply put, it's a B vitamin, one of two forms of vitamin B3, and it participates in a number of critical cellular operations in the skin. What benefits does it have for the skin? Buckle your seatbelts, because this is going to be a long list. Niacinamide is a fantastic treatment for acne-prone skin. Niacinamide reduces sebum production, which can help prevent acne and shine. The vitamin is also known for its anti-inflammatory qualities, which aid in the treatment of acne and other skin conditions such as eczema. Niacinamide helps to build the skin barrier, which is advantageous to people who have eczema or sensitive skin. It is also an efficient skin lightening agent, treating hyperpigmentation by blocking pigment transfer from pigment-producing cells known as melanocytes to skin cells on the surface where discoloration is visible. As if that wasn't enough, there's evidence that niacinamide can help to reduce wrinkling and photoaging by maintaining cell function and repairing DNA damage. To summarise, niacinamide has very few limitations. Is it OK to mix niacinamde and retinol? Yes! In fact, retinol and niacinamide are recommended together for faster effects. The soothing characteristics of niacinamide can also assist to alleviate the unpleasant side effects and irritation that usually accompany retinol's wrinkle-fighting effectiveness. Is it safe to combine with other ingredients? Yes, as a general rule, which is why it's found in many skincare products and is easy to incorporate into your present routine. Niacinamide is frequently coupled with salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid typically found in acne products, due to its acne-fighting qualities. Combining niacinimadie's oil-removal properties with salicylic acid's ability to break down excess oil is an effective way to keep pores free and breakouts at bay. Niacinamide is an ideal choice for combining with alpha-hydroxy acids, which are chemical exfoliants that can cause skin irritation, due to its anti-inflammatory and skin barrier-strengthening effects. Because the AHAs exfoliate the dead skin cells that would otherwise make it impossible for the niacinamide to enter, combining them boosts the efficacy of the niacinamide. Finally, because niacinamide and hyaluronic acid can both help with dry skin, they are frequently mixed. What is the one thing that the jury is still out on? Vitamin C. Because vitamin C might inactivate niacinamide, the applications should be separated by 15 minutes. In truth, the two would have to be heated in order to interact negatively, and more and more cosmetics are combining the two in skin-brightening formulations. The bottom conclusion is that if you utilise a product that contains both vitamin C and niacinamide, it was most likely specifically designed to work together. If you're using two different products that include these chemicals, wait 15 minutes between applications or use one in the morning and the other in the evening. Should I use niacinamide? Sure, in a nutshell. One of the nicest aspects of niacinamide is not only the vast list of benefits it offers, but also how well it is tolerated, particularly by those with sensitive skin. This makes it an enticing choice for those whose skin is sensitive to more common acne or skin lightening agents like benzoyl peroxide or retinoids.

Who Else Fell For The Crazy T-ARA Scandal?
So let me start off by saying I never really like T-ARA. For many reasons for course. One being that I just wasn't into their music, another that I didn't like all their plastic surgery, and finally they just gave me weird vibes. So I was a person who was most likely to believe anything bad I heard about T-ARA, which isn't fair to them. But hey, we were all different 5 years ago right? Some new evidence has come to light recently that has changed the famous T-ARA bullying scandal on its head. So much so, that even the famous K-netizens are apologizing and admiting they were wrong (unheard of). Here's a run down of what happened from my point of view, from the point of view I think most of us had at the time (as international fans with limited knowledge and connection with the events that unfolded) - The girls from T-ARA had been bullying Hwayoung for a long time and have always been mean girls. - Hwayoung got injured and the girls tried to blame her and make her feel guilty for it - Hwayoung was kicked out of the group (the company might have been pressured by the members of T-ARA) ^Hwayoung So with that, you can guess that I really didn't like T-ARA after that, not that I was a big fan anyway. I was pretty satisfied with the evidence I saw, so I didn't really go in deeper and look at any other facts presented at the time, so I missed the opposing staff accounts and fan accounts. If I did see them, I probably just shrugged them off as liars on the "bullies" side. (pls forgive me this was 5 years ago) But here's where it gets interesting. The staff accounts are growing and they're all matching up. Hwayoung is just really, really good at playing the victim. If you're really interested, here is a great breakdown of what happened, using as many sources as possible. TLDR; Scene 1: Hwayoung hurt her ankle, the doctors said she was fine, they went to Japan and she refused to perform, they changed 22 choreographed dances to fit the fact that they were missing a member (T-ARA and stage crew worked 8 extra hours), Hwayoung goes to a hospital in Japan and they also say there is nothing wrong, she demands a wheelchair, doesn't show up to practice even to just support them, stays in her hotel maybe getting her nails done. Scene 2: They return to Korea, are set to perform but again Hwayoung refuses to even get on stage to practice, Hyomin talks to her, apparently they begin to reconcile and work together, and moments before taking the stage for the live show Hwayoung's sister sends nasty messages to member Areum which basically ruins any attempt to get T-ARA to ever work as a team again. Scene 3: Hwayoung's contact is terminated, rumors begin to circulate that Hwayoung was bullied and forced out, Hwayoung doesn't say anything to stop this, remains super vague almost as if she wants us to believe she's bullied, T-ARA's reputation is ruined for almost 3 years, they're just barely coming back now. The netizens were finding any small clip they could find where Hwayoung was "ignored" or bullied. I remember seeing some and thinking how awful T-ARA was... Here's a bit of a breakdown if you're intersted. ^ example, Jiyeon skips high-fiving Hwayoung... But now, more and more reports of Hwayoung being a horrible person are coming out. Most recently, at least 3 hair dressers at Jenny, the most popular hair salon for idols, have said that she treats them like dirt, calling them "shampoo" instead of their real names. Hwayoung tried to say that the hair dressers only said that because they're friends with T-ARA member Hyomin, but there are hair dressers that have literally asked to resign instead of having to work with her. I'm not saying that the girls from T-ARA are saints, but it sure sucks that the netizens took an incident that happened behind closed doors, blew it up in all the wrong ways, and ruined T-ARA's members' careers :/ It's especially disheartening since I have always thought of the T-ARA girls as bullies or at least, not kind, because of this.
To All K-Poppers ❤️
Hello. ^^ 안녕하세요. ^^ So, today was my first day of school. (I'm a Junior! Yay!) It went pretty well. ^^ In English class, we had to do this activity where we choose a shape that best describes us. The choices were: • Circle • Triangle • Square • Squiggly line Here is what I wrote: "The shape that best describes me is a squiggly line because I am very weird and outgoing. I have a wide variety of interests. I like to listen to K-Pop and J-Pop, I like to watch Anime, I love Korean/Japanese fashion, and I love Asian culture." Of course, they asked, "What's K-Pop/J-Pop?" I simply told them, "Korean music and Japanese music." I thought everyone was going to be shocked and make a big deal of it, but to my surprise, they said, "That's pretty cool." I told them about how I am learning Japanese and Korean, how I plan on studying abroad in Japan or South Korea. I know that there are K-Pop fans who keep their interests to themselves. They're afraid of what other people will think of them. My advice to you is, don't care about what other people think. Just be YOU! It's okay to be different. It's okay to be unique. You never know, many other people might have the same interests as you do. I've hid my interest in K-Pop for years. Since I was in 7th grade actually. I thought people would bully me. I thought my friends wouldn't want to be my friends anymore. What I did today, was huge for me. I actually built up enough courage to let everyone know the REAL me. So always be yourself. Make new friends. Live freely. Don't ever be afraid to show people the real you. You never know how many cool people you can meet. Be you! ❤️❤️❤️
