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.

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.
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.
