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.
Brilliant Legacy
Go Eun-sung (Han Hyo-joo) was studying overseas in New York and returned to Korea during her vacation to bring her autistic brother, Eun-woo (Yeon Joon-seok), to the United States to study music. Sunwoo Hwan (Lee Seung-gi), who was also studying in New York, was ordered to return to Korea by his grandmother, Jang Sook-ja (Ban Hyo-jung), to learn how to manage her food company. Eun-sung and Hwan, who were on the same flight back home, accidentally had their luggage bags exchanged, which led to several misunderstandings between the two. Go Pyung-joong (Jeon In-taek), Eun-sung's father, was struggling to save his company from going bankrupt. One day, his wallet and valuables were stolen by a thief who subsequently died in a gas explosion accident. The police, upon finding Pyung-joong’s belongings on the thief, mistakenly identified the thief as him and a death certificate for Pyung-joong was promptly issued. He decided to lie low and not tell his family that he was alive so that his family could claim his life insurance money and use it to clear the debts. However his second wife, Baek Sung-hee (Kim Mi-sook), kicked her stepchildren, Eun-sung and Eun-woo, out of the house after collecting the insurance money and moved into a new home with her daughter, Yoo Seung-mi (Moon Chae-won). Seung-mi was also Hwan's longtime best friend, hoping to be something more. Eun-sung asked for help from several of her friends, including Hyung-jin, who avoided her because she was no longer rich. She managed to find a job at a nightclub with the help of her friend, Hye-ri. At the nightclub, Eun-sung met Hyung-jin's upperclassman, Park Joon-se (Bae Soo-bin), who was shocked to see her working there. She also met Hwan, who caused her to lose contact with Eun-woo. Realizing that Eun-woo was missing, Eun-sung was devastated and tried searching for her brother but to no avail. With the help of Hye-ri and Joon-se, Eun-sung rented a small room and started a small dumplings stall while continuing her search for Eun-woo. Meanwhile, Sook-ja became deeply disappointed in her grandson as Hwan had no direction in life and did not know how to cherish her company and employees. While pondering over what to do about her grandson, Sook-ja visited a neighborhood that she used to live in when she was poor and encountered Eun-sung, who was selling dumplings. Sook-ja encountered an accident and received help from Eun-sung. Seeing that Eun-sung tried her best to take care of her even when she could not afford her own daily expenses, Sook-ja was touched by Eun-sung's compassion. She brought Eun-sung home, then announced to her family that Eun-sung was going to live with them and that she was going to appoint Eun-sung as the heir of her food company, if she could raise the profits of the sinking second branch by 20%. i loved this drama :D

How Facials Work Better Than Your Skin Care Products
The average woman devotes approximately six to eight days per month to beauty. On these days, she usually goes to the most expensive spa in her neighborhood for a facial that costs the same as some cars. Blood? Caviar? Leeches? She's tried it all on her face. Oops! Sorry. That is usually the case for celebrities, who can afford to spend hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on extreme beauty routines. However, reality can be very different for the average person. While you may have had a facial or two in the past, you are most likely very busy and prefer to stick to a budget, which may prevent you from having a once-a-year facial treatment. We understand that many people regard facials as overly luxurious spa treatments and do not include them in their overall beauty maintenance routines. When you look closely at facials for acne, ageing, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and so on, you can see that they are actually a necessity for maintaining healthy skin in the long run. Consider Facials to be a Skin Deep-Cleanse. If you told your dentist that you were going to start skipping your annual cleanings because you were already brushing your teeth at home, he might be so taken aback that he couldn't even begin to tell you how wrong you were. Facials are similar to dental cleanings in that they provide a deep cleaning on a regular basis that you simply cannot replicate at home. While your nightly face cleaning routine removes surface dirt and grime, it does not reach deep into the pores. Furthermore, procedures such as an IPL treatment and a hyperpigmentation treatment – both of which can significantly improve the appearance of your skin – are not something you can do at home. When pores are not thoroughly cleaned, they can become clogged with oil and debris and transform into sebaceous filaments, which resemble blackheads. However, unlike blackheads, they are nearly impossible to remove permanently. This is why getting regular facials is so important for maintaining healthy skin. Depending on the condition of your skin, you may require a specific treatment once a month or less frequently. This is entirely up to your skin specialist and you. Facials on a regular basis save you money in the long run. During their nightly skincare routines, most people apply far too much product. If you have a habit of using an entire dropper of serum, you may not be harming your skin, but you are wasting money. Many people use expensive skincare products because they don't feel like the product is absorbing and they don't notice a difference in the appearance of their skin. This is true for many people. There is literally no room for the product to sink in and absorb when the pores are clogged and congested. This means that there isn't anything wrong with the product; it's just that your skin can't absorb it. Consider an empty wine glass. You could easily pour water into it. Consider a wine glass that has never been washed and is covered in gunk and grime. You'd have to pour water for an extremely long time before the grime dissipated and flowed away. Filling the glass, on the other hand, would be simple if you manually cleaned it before pouring. A facial cleans your skin so that it is ready to absorb your skincare products, which means you need less product to see a difference.
