How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Many patients ask us, "How does laser hair removal work?" But, more often than not, what they really want to know is, "Is laser hair removal safe and effective, and will it work on me?" Laser hair removal may sound like a terrifying procedure that involves shooting a laser gun at your skin like something from a spy movie. However, this is not how laser hair removal actually looks. Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular, and it's easy to see why when you learn how effective it is. We'll answer your questions here so you can make the best choice for your lifestyle and skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Safe Obviously, the most important question to ask whenever you try a new skin treatment is whether it is safe. When you're out in public, everyone can see your skin. People are usually scared of the word "laser" when it comes to laser hair removal because it sounds dangerous. The truth is that the lasers used in laser hair removal are extremely effective at destroying only hair follicles while leaving the rest of your skin unharmed. The US FDA strictly regulates all lasers used for hair removal to ensure their safety. Hair removal lasers are referred to as "lasers" because they emit extremely concentrated light. This specialised light is absorbed by your hair follicles, which convert the light energy into heat. Heat harms your hair's follicle, which is responsible for hair growth. This targeted damage to the hair follicle is what removes unwanted hair and reduces the likelihood of it growing back. Hair removal lasers are designed to target melanin in the hair. Melanin is the pigment that gives colour to your body hair. The laser targets the hair from the shaft down into the follicle by using the contrast between the melanin and your skin. Because laser hair removal works by reducing the ability of your hair follicles to regrow hair, it must be done gradually. The fact that the procedure is done over time contributes to the procedure's safety because the laser's level is low enough to damage only the hair follicles and not the surrounding skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Worth Your Investment Laser hair removal requires an investment of your time; however, when you consider how long the results will last, it is relatively inexpensive. Consider how much time and money you spend on your current hair removal method when deciding whether or not laser hair removal is a good option for you. For example, if you shave your legs, try keeping track of how much time you spend shaving each week. Then figure out how many razor-head replacements you go through in a week. Then multiply this cost by the number of weeks and months in a year to get the current, annual cost of hair removal. The Time Commitment Laser hair removal can take anywhere from 2 to 6 sessions, depending on your skin and hair type. The length of each session is determined by the size of the area being shaved. Small areas, such as the upper lip or armpits, can take 5-15 minutes, whereas larger areas, such as your legs or back, can take up to an hour per session. You can expect to wait 4-6 weeks between sessions. This is due to the fact that hair grows in cycles, and the laser is most effective at killing your hair when it is actively growing. One of the most common mistakes people make with laser hair removal is going to a couple of sessions, seeing a reduction in hair growth, and then failing to return for their remaining sessions. What is actually happening when you notice this initial reduction in hair growth is that your hair is in a dormant period and will re-grow quickly once this cycle is completed. That is why it is essential to attend the recommended number of sessions. How Much Money Do You Really Spend? The average cost of laser hair removal is between $300 and $500. However, this varies greatly depending on the size of the area you're removing hair from and the number of sessions your hair requires. Many facilities offer financing for aesthetic treatments. The initial cost of this hair removal method may appear to be high. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is expected to provide months to years of smooth skin at a time. If you multiply the amount you currently spend on shaving or waxing over months and years, the cost is likely comparable to what you'll pay as a one-time fee for laser hair removal. You may be wondering why, if laser hair removal works so well and is so inexpensive, not everyone is doing it. The truth is that there are numerous misconceptions about laser hair removal that deter people from using it. How to Get Ready There are things you can do to prepare your skin for a healthy laser hair removal session, as well as things you can do to care for your skin after each session. The best way to decide whether to commit to laser hair removal is to speak with your skin specialist about your hair removal options.
I Can't Deal With Fandoms {The 5th GAON Chart Kpop Awards'}
So I'm just making this card for the people who missed this award show, I started watching it at 6:00am for me. Somehow my body knew this award show was on and woke me up. I catched the last half of the performances but I couldn't help but be disgusted by the live chat beside the video. There was so much negativity, I literally couldn't even bear to look at the chat. But before I get into that, I want to show you guys who performed and what rewards they received. B.A.P "Wild, Young & Free" First of all the intro was so good I almost fell out of my bed. So B.A.P of course performed this song and killed it. They all looked good esepecially Youngjae's contacts and Himchan's hair. They won the "Hot Trend Of The Year" award along with Baek Ah Yeon. Red Velvet "Automatic" and "Ice Cream Cake" I'm so glad Red Velvet performed both of these songs because they are both of my favorite songs by them besides "Dumb Dumb". They did a great job with the performance. They won the "Hot Performance Of They Year"award. Zion.T "Yanghwa Bridge" I'm so glad he performed this song because I can't get enough of it, it is so good. His voice is just perfect both live and recorded, you can't even tell the difference. He won the "Discovery Of The Year R&B Award". Mad Clown "Fire" and "Sour Grapes" He won the "Artist of Year" during January. AOA Cream "Heart Attack" and "I'm Jelly Bean" They won the "World Rookie Of They Year Award" *this is the time where I started watching* IKON "My Type" and "Dumb And Dumber" Aside from the 15 dabs Bobby did in this live performance this performance was alright. The background music was a little to fast for them and they struggled to catch up but they did good overall. They won the "Artist of The Year" for September and "New Artist Of The Year" along with GFriend. SEVENTEEN "Mansae" and "Shining Diamond" Seventeen surprise me with this performance, it was unique they way they introduce themselves and really worked for them. They won the "World Rookie Of The Year" along with AOA. Taeyon "I" My girl Taeyeon did great with this performance and it was so beautiful too. She won the "Artist Of The Year" for October Zico "Boys And Girls" Of course this bias wrecker had to perform as well and "Boys And Girls" are one of my favoirite songs by him. He won the "Artist Of The Year" for November Vixx "Chained Up" I got so happy when I saw N's sassines in this live performance. The remix of this song is always good and Ravi just destroyed my life like always. His shirt didn't come off in this performance which is kind of bittersweet but thier performance was still great. Which might explained why they won the "Hot Performance Award of The Year". This is where the fandoms wars start to erupt in the live chat, So in each block will be some comments other fans said about their group or other groups....WARNING YOU MAY GET MAD AT SOME OF THESE COMMENTS!! BTS "I Need You" and "Dope" BTS killed their performance and they look so good in their classy suits. They won the "K-Pop World Hallyu Star Award". I was partially glad when BTS performed because I thought that would stop the wave of BTS comments but instead it made it worse with fans saying "That wasn't long enough", "BTS needed more time", and they also made insulted the other performers as well. I got so tired of seeing BTS in the comment section that I just started to ignore the live chat. EXO "Exodus", "Call Me Baby" and "Love Me Right" EXO left a path of destruction that killed me and my ears. It was so good although I think they could've had better mics because we could barely hear them. They won the "Artist Of The Year(album)" for the first, second and fourth quarter and the "Fan Vote Popularity Award". Sehun also recieved the award "Weibo Star Award". Now EXO fans were totally inappropriate with comments like... -"This is boring, Big Bang is winning all the awards" -"They(Big Bang) look like beggers on stage." And many others that were horrible. Big Bang "Bae Bae", "Bang Bang Bang" and "We Like 2 Party" Big Bang killed it but is that really something new...They all look so good and happy and of course Seungri had to do another Sehun moment with a member of Super Junior. I'm so glad they were enjoying themselves. They won the "Artist Of The Year" for May, June, July and August. They also won the "YinYueTai Most Influential Group in Asia Award". But the sad part about this is that their fans in the live chat were arguing with other people. They were the worst in the live chat. Comments included stuff like.... -"Exo has no quality on their work" -"Exo rappers can't rap worth nothing" -They even said that EXO had the worst live performance. Again this is not all the negative comments I saw in the chat. Besides the negative comments that I saw during the show everything was awesome and I will continue to watch this award show the next time it comes on.

6 Easy Ways To A Smooth Neck
Because the skin on your neck is some of the thinnest on your body, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Here are six ways to make your neck look younger and address everything from sun damage to sagging on this delicate area. 1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your dermatologist will agree that a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen applied to your neck and chest every day will help prevent collagen breakdown and the formation of sunspots. Don't forget to massage the sides and back of your neck. 2. MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURIZATION. Again, the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so keeping the area hydrated is essential for a smoother overall texture. Look for peptide-containing creams (which can help stimulate new collagen growth) and apply them in gentle, upward strokes from your chest to your jawline. 3. RECLAIM YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Do you always wake up with pillow lines on the side of your neck? Apply one of these silicone patches before going to bed to keep your skin from crinkling while you sleep. You'll wake up with a smoother neck and less chance of further damage. 4. FOCUS ON CORRECT POSTURE. The amount of time we spend looking down at our phones and screens has resulted in what we now refer to as "tech neck." The simplest solution would be to limit screen time entirely, but more realistically, you should keep everything as close to eye level as possible to avoid unnecessary wrinkling. 5. GIVE LASER TREATMENTS A GO AHEAD. Still have fine lines on your neck? Fraxel lasers, stimulate your body's natural repair process to promote collagen growth. Fraxel can also be used to treat any dark spots or broken capillaries in the area, giving you a more even complexion. 6. ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SERIOUS REPAIR. Ultherapy or Ultracel is your best non-surgical option for deeper, more stubborn lines and sagging. The FDA-approved treatment uses heat generated by focused sonic waves to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Take note that the effect is gradual, and most patients notice a lifting effect three to six months after the initial treatment, so be patient.
