5 Ways to Make The Most of Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular treatments all over the world. The combination of experienced practitioners and cutting-edge technology can provide you with the best hair removal results for the various treatment areas. Here's how you can make sure you get the best results. 1. Begin with a consultation. During the consultation, you will meet with a dermatologist who will review your medical history, discuss treatment goals, explain how the treatment works, discuss the type of results the client can expect, and determine if the client is a good candidate for treatment. Consultations typically last 20-30 minutes. 2. Plan ahead of time Your dermatologist will advise you to shave the treatment areas before your laser hair removal appointment. Prior to treatment, do not wax any of the treated areas. Hair is removed from the follicle by waxing. The hair follicles in the treated areas must be intact for laser hair removal to work. The pigment required by the laser for hair removal is found in the hair follicle. If the hair follicle is not present, the laser will burn the skin rather than remove hair. If your underarms are one of the areas to be treated, we recommend that you do not wear any deodorant. 3. Set realistic expectations  Although laser hair removal can permanently reduce body hair, there is no scientific evidence that it can permanently remove ALL body hair. There is no such thing as permanent hair removal. Clients should not expect to be completely hair-free after laser hair removal. This is why the FDA refers to laser hair removal results as "permanent hair reduction." We have, however, seen incredible results where the hair is almost completely gone. The majority of you will notice a significant reduction in body hair. Hair that grows back after each session is sparse, fine, and lighter in colour. Laser hair removal reduces the amount of shaving you'll need to do in the future while also reducing the amount and thickness of the hair that grows back. After completing a full series of laser hair removal treatments, you will typically require one or two maintenance sessions per year to maintain results. 4. The Importance of Timing When the skin is least exposed to the sun, the best time of year to get laser hair removal is in the winter. For the majority of our patients, this occurs in the fall. Many factors will influence the best time of year for treatment. First and foremost, consider the client's lifestyle. Does the client spend a lot of time outside with their skin exposed? Second, it will be determined by how tanned a client's skin is. The more dark the skin, the less energy the laser can use for a safe and effective treatment. With the laser's energy decreasing, more sessions will be required to achieve the desired results for a client. Another factor to consider is the body part being treated. Laser hair removal on the face typically requires one session every 6 weeks to achieve the desired results. This treatment series can be finished in the fall/winter season. Laser hair removal in the neck to tummy area typically requires one session every 8 to 10 weeks to achieve the desired results. Laser hair removal on areas below the tummy usually requires one session every 15 weeks to achieve the desired results. It may take more than a year to achieve the desired results with laser hair removal on the lower leg area. It is important to note that the further away the body area is from the face and heart, the longer the healing time and the hair growth cycle takes. This makes receiving laser hair removal treatments more difficult during the summer months. The skin should not be exposed to direct sunlight for the best laser hair removal results. This is why, unless they don't mind staying indoors and covered up, most clients don't get laser hair removal in the summer. 5. Book Your Appointments Ahead Of Time Depending on the area being treated and the stage of hair growth, it may take several laser hair removal sessions to weaken the hair follicle enough that it does not grow back. A dermatologist may recommend that you come in for treatment once every 8 to 15 weeks to achieve the desired results, depending on the area of the body being treated. It's a good idea to pre-book all of their laser hair removal sessions and get them on their calendar at the start of your treatment plan. This not only ensures that you get your preferred appointment times, but it also helps you stay on track with their treatments and reduces the likelihood of missing a session. If you go too long between treatments and miss a laser hair removal session, you risk falling out of the hair growth cycle and needing more sessions.
Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah
The ksar, a group of earthen buildings surrounded by high walls, is a traditional pre-Saharan habitat. The houses crowd together within the defensive walls, which are reinforced by corner towers. Ait-Ben-Haddou, in Ouarzazate province, is a striking example of the architecture of southern Morocco. Located in the foothills on the southern slopes of the High Atlas in the Province of Ouarzazate, the site of Ait-Ben-Haddou is the most famous ksar in the Ounila Valley. The Ksar of Aït-Ben-Haddou is a striking example of southern Moroccan architecture. The ksar is a mainly collective grouping of dwellings. Inside the defensive walls which are reinforced by angle towers and pierced with a baffle gate, houses crowd together - some modest, others resembling small urban castles with their high angle towers and upper sections decorated with motifs in clay brick - but there are also buildings and community areas. It is an extraordinary ensemble of buildings offering a complete panorama of pre-Saharan earthen construction techniques. The oldest constructions do not appear to be earlier than the 17th century, although their structure and technique were propagated from a very early period in the valleys of southern Morocco. The site was also one of the many trading posts on the commercial route linking ancient Sudan to Marrakesh by the Dra Valley and the Tizi-n'Telouet Pass. Architecturally, the living quarters form a compact grouping, closed and suspended. The community areas of the ksar include a mosque, a public square, grain threshing areas outside the ramparts, a fortification and a loft at the top of the village, an caravanserai, two cemeteries (Muslim and Jewish) and the Sanctuary of the Saint Sidi Ali or Amer. The Ksar of Ait- Ben-Haddou is a perfect synthesis of earthen architecture of the pre-Saharan regions of Morocco. Criterion (iv): The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou is an eminent example of a ksar in southern Morocco illustrating the main types of earthen constructions that may be observed dating from the 17th century in the valleys of Dra, Todgha, Dadès and Souss. Criterion (v): The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou illustrates the traditional earthen habitat, representing the culture of southern Morocco, which has become vulnerable as a result of irreversible socio-economic and cultural changes Integrity (2009) All the structures comprising the ksar are located within the boundaries of the property and the buffer zone protects its environment. The earthen buildings are very vulnerable due to lack of maintenance and regular repair resulting from the abandonment of the ksar by its inhabitants. The CERKAS (Centre for the conservation and rehabilitation of the architectural heritage of atlas and sub-atlas zones) monitors, with difficulty, respect for the visual integrity of the property. Authenticity (2009) In comparison to other ksour of the region, the Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou has preserved its architectural authenticity with regard to configuration and materials. The architectural style is well preserved and the earthen constructions are perfectly adapted to the climatic conditions and are in harmony with the natural and social environment. The large houses in the lower part of the village, with well conserved decorative motifs, are regularly maintained. The construction materials used still remain earth and wood. The inclination to introduce cement has so far been unsuccessful, thanks to the continued monitoring of the «Comité de contrôle des infractions» (Rural Community, Town Planning Division, Urban Agency, CERKAS). Only a few lintels and reinforced concrete escaped its vigilance, but they have been hidden by earthen rendering. Particular attention is also paid to doors and windows giving on to the lanes, to ensure that the wood is not replaced by metal. Protection and management requirements (2009) Protection measures essentially relate to the different laws for the listing of historic monuments and sites, in particular the Law 22-80 concerning Moroccan heritage. The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou currently has a five-year management plan (2007-2012). This management plan is the result of two years of reflection and workshops involving all the persons and institutions concerned with the future of the site, in particular the local populations. The recommendations of this plan are being implemented. Furthermore, two management committees have been established (a local committee and a national one) in which all the parties are represented and cooperate in decision-making. As well as managing the property, CERKAS ensures coordination in the implementation of this management plan. visit our site for more informations...

Acne is a skin condition that affects the oil glands and hair follicles. The pores in your skin are linked to glands that produce an oily substance called sebum. The glands and your pores are linked by a canal called the follicle, which contains thin hair that grows to the skin's surface. When sebum and dead skin cells combine, they form a plug in the follicle. The bacteria in the plug causes inflammation, which results in red inflamed acne and furthermore, acne scars What is the underlying cause of acne?

3 Lifestyle Habits that can Cause Acne Breakouts
Your acne is coded in your genes and governed by your hormones. While these two factors are not in your control, your lifestyle which affects your skin equally, IS. Here are the most important lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your acne breakouts... 1. Clean your mobile phone Your mobile phone is pressed against your cheeks while you chat away with friends. The bacteria from your skin gets transferred on to the screen and stays there till it gets pressed on your skin again. Besides this your phone may have food residue from the time that you were eating and texting and dust from lying on dirty surfaces. If you have acne prone skin, make sure you sanitize the surface of your mobile phone at least once every day. 2. Wash your face less often If you have oily skin which is prone to breakouts, chances are that you are washing your face more than twice daily. That, coupled with acne treatment AHA toners, salicylic acid serums and retinol night creams can over dry your skin. This leads your skin to produce even more oil which in turn feeds acne causing bacteria. Wash your face maximum 3 times a day. Once in the morning when you wake up and shower, once before sleeping at night and an additional time after a workout or outdoor exposure. 3. Reduce your carb intake Refined carbs such as bread, pasta and fried food have a high glycemic index. They increase blood sugar and cause a spike in the hormone Insulin. High glycemic foods are very inflammatory for the body and also disturb your gut bacteria. This in turn disturbs your skin microbiome. Increase your intake of fresh vegetables and salads instead. These are loaded with antioxidants which help your skin in healing faster. If you have been struggling with acne breakouts for a while, getting a little help from your dermatologist could go a long way in getting rid of your acne.
Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
Lips are frequently left out of anti-aging discussions. Volume loss and wrinkles around the mouth, are some of the first signs of ageing. Our lips undergo a number of significant changes as they age. Most lips lose volume and definition over time. But smokers, those with lighter skin, and those who spend a lot of time in the sun are more likely to have lines and wrinkles. Lines can also be exacerbated by those who purse their lips when speaking. So, if your current lip care routine consists of swiping lip balm on chapped lips, there's definitely more you can do to to make your lips look fresh and youthful.  Lip Anti-Aging Serums and Balms The newer lip balms deliver anti-aging ingredients and hydration right where you need it. Look for one that includes a retinol derivative, a potent ingredient known for increasing collagen production and fading dark spots. The issue is that retinol can be irritating when applied directly to the lips, so make sure to moisturise thoroughly afterwards. Ceramides, hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants, and intense hydrators like coconut oil are other ingredients to look for to make lips appear fuller. Within a few days, your lips will gradually plump up. Lip balms containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which chemically exfoliate the top layer of skin to reveal a smoother, softer pout.  The simplest anti-aging lip hack, however, is to remember that the skin around your mouth should be treated in the same manner as the rest of your skin. Apply a nightly serum there as well if you're applying it elsewhere. If you're going to smear sunscreen on your lips, use a chapstick or lipstick with an SPF of at least 30. To prevent damage from daily UV light, the skin around the mouth should be protected every morning with sunscreen and topical antioxidants, just as it would be in other areas. In the evening, use retinol, growth factors, and peptides to repair your skin.  Peels and Lasers  A quick laser zap or a chemical peel can help treat fine lines and pigmentation around the lips that do not seem to improve with topical treatments. The lines form because the muscles around the mouth constrict, folding the overlying skin. Lasers and peels can be used in the office to improve skin tone and texture while also reducing the appearance of lines. Skin lightening ingredients such as kojic acid or hydroquinone derivatives are also excellent choices for lip lightening as well. Microneedling causes micro-injuries to the skin around the lips, stimulating collagen and elastic production. There is less downtime than with a laser or peel, and it is not melanin or pigment sensitive.  Lip Injectables Not all lip fillers are performed with the goal of creating Kylie Jenner lips. The lip's border, known as the "white roll," loses definition with age. Because you lost structure at the border, it is common for lipstick to bleed from the red part of your lip onto your skin. To restore volume and structure around the mouth, a filler is recommended. Over-treating the lip border can result in duck lips, but subtle treatments can help to distinguish the lip from the skin around the mouth.  Injections of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, or the more subtle Volbella, can make the lips more defined and thus younger-looking without significantly changing their size. If you're more concerned about wrinkles and lines around your mouth, a few drops of Botox can also help soften and relax the muscles around your mouth. There is one small catch: you won't be able to purse your lips as much, and you may be unable to drink from a straw for a few months. If you can't give up your daily iced coffee, peels or lasers with your dermatologist may be a better wrinkle-fighting option for you. Source: Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
Movie Review | State Of Siege-Temple Attack: A Winning Ode To NSG
Here is the critic movie review of 'State of Siege Temple Attack'. The follow-up to ZEE5 terrific web series (State Of Siege: 26/11), is in the form of a movie. State of Siege: Temple Attack is a hostage rescue thriller inspired by the September 24, 2002 terror attack on Ahmedabad's Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple. State of Siege-Temple Attack: A Winning Ode To NSG Directed by Ken Ghosh, the ZEE5 original movie stars Akshaye Khanna, Vivek Dahiya, Gautam Rode, Sameer Soni, Parvin Dabas and Akshay Oberoi (in a cameo). Produced by Contiloe Pictures (Abhimanyu Singh), State of Siege: Temple Attack premieres on 9th July 2021 on ZEE5 with a simultaneous release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. State of Siege: Temple Attack Movie Review ZEE5 along with Contiloe Pictures (Abhimanyu Singh) the producer of State of Siege: 26/11 and Lt. Col (retd.) Sundeep Sen the 2nd in command at the NSG during the dreadful 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attacks as consultant on both the State of Siege projects churn a satisfyingly winning ode to the valour of NSG. Tagged as 'SahasKiVijay' State of Siege: Temple Attack may not be as sweeping as its previous 26/11 series but this movie is definitely a winningly explosive ode to the outstanding courage of the NSG. Marking the debut of actor Akshaye Khanna in the OTT world and director Ken Gosh in the ‘war’ genre, State of Siege: Temple Attack is a fictional drama inspired by the real-life terrorist attack on Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad, where pilgrims were held hostage. The one hour forty nine minutes movie infuses real passion in the hearts of a true Indian. The terrorist has entered the temple, are killing innocent people, NSG commando Hanut Singh (Akshaye Khanna) fighting with his PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) syndrome leads the way along with (Major Samar) Gautam Rode, to rescue innocent people and save lives till extra force arrives. The shocking terrorist attack on Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad came after the Gujarat riots in 2002. Without getting into the politics of any nature, I will talk about the impact of State of Siege: Temple Attack as an action-packed thriller. ZEE5's State of Siege: 26/11 (March 2020) was based on Sandeep Unnithan’s book ‘Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11.’ State of Siege: Temple Attack is altogether a different ‘operation’ and in no way a continuation. The inclusion of Lt. Col (retd.) Sundeep Sen – the 2nd in command at the NSG during both the operation as consultant on both the State of Siege projects adds realism and authenticity to the characters especially the NSG shown in the movie. The vulnerability of a strong, honest brave heart commander Major Hanut Singh (Akshaye Khanna) suffering from PTSD is rightly nuanced. Yes, the PTSD thing might be dramatized but the excellence of Akshaye Khanna as an actor makes it completely believable. This extra notch is due to the expertise shared by Lt. Col (retd.) Sundeep Sen. The writing by William Borthwick and Simon Fantauzzo is more crowd pleasing this time and straight in the face which sticks to the tried, tested and trusted military action thrillers laced with patriotism. The protagonist suffers from PTSD, a terrorist who escapes from his hand and then poses a bigger threat - Bilal Naikoo (Mir Sarwar). The exchange of a fellow terrorist by the boss - Abu Hamza (Abhimanyu Singh) in exchange of hostages. A righteous commanding officer of the protagonist - Parvin Dabas (Col. Nagar) who is not wrong and is only following the rules. Tension, passion, incredible heroism with some good action and appealing patriotism. All are there to please the audience and a true Indian. Ken Ghosh does a decent job and helms a satisfyingly winning action ‘war’ thriller. Shot in 4 different locations during the pandemic - Manali, Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Mumbai, State of Siege: Temple Attack is technically a polished effort as well. Tejal Pramod Shetye's cinematography truly captures the captivating locations of Manali and the thrilling action inside the temple superbly. The action by Mandhar Verma and Rinku Bacchan is thrilling. Editing by Mukesh Thakur is fine. Performances Akshaye Khanna makes an excellent OTT debut. Gautam Rode is fantastic. Vivek Dahiya makes his presence felt. Sameer Soni has its moments. Parvin Dabas is fantastic. Akshay Oberoi in a cameo shines. Abhilash Chaudhary, Dhanveer Singh, Mridul Das and Mihir Ahuja as the terrorist in the temple are rightly cast and they do create a fear on screen. Solid support comes from Mir Sarwar, Abhimanyu Singh and Manjari Phadnis. Final words State of Siege: Temple Attack may lack that all out sweep achieved by its previous operation - State of Siege: 26/11 but in no way this action ‘war’ thriller lacks in thrills and infuses the right passion amongst the audience and a true Indian. Some naysayers may call it another chest-beating pamphlet of glory but this true valour story of NSG glory deserves an extra for its showcase of courage, care and patriotism. Go for it.
How Dairy gives You Acne
Everyone who's fighting acne, doubts this at some point in time. 'Does dairy make my acne worse?'. You may stop having dairy for a week, only to realize that it is too much trouble and you can't really tell the difference. Let's figure this out together... Research tells us that inflammatory skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema and acne are more common and more severe in those who consume a diet rich in dairy products. These skin problems are even more common in those who indulge in smoking, consume packaged food and are exposed to polluted air. Cow's milk, which is the largest consumed animal milk in the world, contains casein protein and whey protein. Both these are known to raise the levels of growth hormones in calves as well as humans. Growth hormones such as insulin-like growth factor - 1 or IGF-1 is strongly linked with increased sebum formation in our skin. After infancy our body increasingly loses its ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk. We know that more than 50% of the world's population is lactose intolerant. Milk and milk products trigger all sorts of allergies as well as acne. Besides this, cows and buffaloes are regularly injected with artificial hormones to increase their milk supply. When you consume dairy that is mass produced with such practices, it throws your hormones off balance. Dairy may also promote growth of unhealthy gut bacteria and cause gut inflammation. This alters the way your food is digested and absorbed, which in turn leads to vitamin deficiencies and dull skin. How to prevent dairy related skin problems? Reduce dairy intake and switch to high-fiber diet instead. Increase your intake of omega-3 rich food and supplements to achieve a blemish-free skin. Do not substitute dairy with packaged almond milk or soy milk. Consider switching to green tea or freshly brewed black coffee instead. Both of these have plenty of antioxidant benefits which boost your immunity and make your skin glow. If you plan to give a dairy-free lifestyle a try, avoid all dairy products completely for atleast 3 weeks to see the improvement. Any thing less than 2 weeks cannot give you an idea of whether dairy truly aggravates your acne. If your acne persists consider discussing diagnostic tests and acne treatment options with your dermatologist. *Dairy products include milk, yogurt, curd, buttermilk, cheese, paneer, whey protein shakes, cakes and other similar desserts.
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.
3 Cosmetic Treatments that Celebrities Love
Hollywood stars look picture perfect on the Red Carpet. They work hard to achieve that uber-glam look by having a healthy diet and fitness routine. But every now and then, they do get a little help from their dermatologist to refresh their timeless look. Here are the top 3 treatments that celebrities indulge in... Botox Botox is used to achieve a tight and shiny forehead, lift-up eyebrows that droop with age and get rid of the creases that occur on the outer corner of your eyes when you smile. Almost every celebrity facing the camera gets Botox at some time in their life. When this treatment is done in the correct way, with low doses, the face looks ageless. But when the dose is too much or wrongly placed, then our celebrities end up looking more botched up than beautiful! Lip Fillers Celebrities have lip fillers for two reasons. The young ones may feel insecure about thin lips and want to plump up their pout. While the older ones lose lip volume as they age and also develop whistler's lines or smoker's lines. Lip fillers are like art, or sculpture. Your dermatologist is responsible for creating a beautiful shape that looks natural and complements your facial proportions. Badly done lips are called a 'trout pout' or 'duck-bill lips' and there's nothing appealing about them. Skin Tightening Everyone of us including celebrities use anti-aging creams. But that isn't the true reason behind their tight skin. Celebrities indulge in skin tightening treatment such as Thermage, Ultherapy and Fraxel once a year. These are usually done when they are on vacation, to hide the down time. These skin tightening treatments can reverse several years of skin aging with just a single treatment session. The result is a lifted, firm and rejuvenated skin. If you wish to glam up your look consider speaking to your dermatologist about these treatment options.
