Laser Hair Removal Vs. Electrolysis

It's never been easier or less expensive to permanently remove unwanted body hair. But before you throw out your razors and cancel your waxing appointment, consider which hair removal method is best for you. Dr. Niketa Sonavane, celebrity dermatologist in Mumbai and founder of Ambrosia Aesthetics, spoke with us about the differences between laser hair removal and electrolysis.

HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?


In laser hair removal, highly focused light is pulsated deep into the skin, where it is absorbed by the hair pigment. Surprisingly, laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure in Mumbai. It is similar to but not identical to IPL therapy (IPL). This procedure generates heat, which kills the hair follicle and prevents future hair growth.

Treatments must be performed every four to six weeks to coincide with the hair growth cycle. The laser's light absorbs better in the hair's active growth phase, generating enough heat to destroy the hair follicle. Each session targets a new set of follicles until the body is hair-free.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING LASER HAIR REMOVAL?


"My clinic's laser hair removal sessions have been compared to a hot stone massage." Laser hair removal, like waxing, can be painful. The treatments are usually only a few minutes long and only mildly painful. It can take 5 minutes for a small area like the top lip or chin to an hour or more for larger areas like both legs or the entire body. According to Dr. Sonavane, each laser hair removal session should be done after a new hair growth cycle. For dense hair and rapid regrowth, monthly treatments are advised. Patients must wait until their hair grows back before re-treating. Slower hair growth means more frequent treatments. According to the dermatologist, some patients start with four-week treatments and progress to six- to eight-week treatments, then eight to sixteen-week treatments.

The LHR treatment is simple and easy to prepare for. The manufacturer recommends shaving the day before and not using skincare products the day of the treatment. To avoid irritation from shaving before laser hair removal treatments, Dr. Sonavane advises patients to trim their hair first.

WHO CAN HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL?


Because the laser energy is drawn to the pigment in the follicle, patients with darker hair are ideal candidates for laser hair removal. The most common combination of light skin and dark hair for laser hair removal is this.

Blonde people may find that lasers like the Diode or Ruby, which are designed for people with less pigmentation, are more effective at removing unwanted hair.

The treatment's success is highly dependent on your skin and hair colour, so a consultation is required to discuss your specific skin and hair colour. Otherwise, your doctor can recommend a treatment that is better suited to your skin type and condition.

Remember that results are not always guaranteed, regardless of skin tone. Some people notice hair regrowth months or years later, while others never need to use a razor again.

CHOOSING A LASER HAIR REMOVAL CLINIC


Price is an important factor when choosing a laser hair removal clinic, but it should not be the only one. Laser hair removal in Mumbai can cost anywhere from Rs 1000 to Rs 20000 per session, depending on the area treated and the laser used. Research thoroughly before choosing a dermatologist, and only work with someone who has extensive experience and positive patient reviews.

IS LASER MAINTENANCE SESSION IMPORTANT?


The most important aspect of post-laser hair removal maintenance is to keep up with your laser hair removal sessions. After each session, the targeted hair will fall out in about two weeks. While you will see some improvement after your first treatment, it usually takes six sessions to see significant improvement. Because of this, Dr. Sonavane recommends additional treatment sessions if the skin is darker than expected.

After six sessions, most people report a 75-95 percent reduction in hair growth. After all, the method will need some upkeep. For the best results, additional sessions should be booked once a year for the first few years.

Electrolysis.


WHAT IS ELECTROLYSIS AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis uses shortwave radio frequencies to inhibit hair growth rather than light. Unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis is considered permanent by the FDA (FDA). To remove hair, an epilator, a needle often thinner than a single strand of hair, is inserted into the skin through the hair follicle's natural opening. The epilator works by delivering a mild electrical current to the follicle, killing it and preventing hair growth.

THE PROCEDURE OF ELECTROLYSIS.

Depending on the size of the treated area, electrolysis sessions can last from 15 minutes to an hour. Like laser hair removal, electrolysis can cause some minor discomfort or pain. Many people describe the sensation as a prick or a shock. Precautions for laser hair removal are the same as for any other procedure. Preparation with ibuprofen or numbing cream can also help.

If you have symptoms, Dr. Sonavane advises you to avoid all stimulants, including caffeine. They "may make it difficult to sit during electrolysis sessions," says Dr. Sonavane. “Being relaxed and well-rested before any hair removal therapy helps to reduce discomfort.”

Just as there is a proper way to remove laser hair, there is a proper way to keep your hair. Dr. Sonavane also suggests clipping the hairs if necessary, but they must be long enough for the technician to pick them up with tweezers. Because these hairs will not be available for treatment during their next appointment and will grow back untreated, it is best to avoid plucking or tweezing between laser hair removal or electrolysis treatments.

The main difference between electrolysis and laser hair removal is the number of sessions required. Electrolysis takes a lot of time and effort. Depending on the location and the patient, up to 30 sessions may be required.

WHO CAN HAVE ELECTROLYSIS?

Because electrolysis uses radio frequencies rather than light, it targets the follicle rather than the pigment, making it suitable for all skin tones. Tweezing and waxing prior to the procedure may make it more difficult. Tweezing and waxing can change the shape of hair follicles, making epilation more difficult. Avoid tweezing and waxing. Aside from that, electrolysis is only for the committed, as the full effects of treatment can take up to 1.5 years. Ask your nurse what to expect before surgery.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE AN ELECTROLYSIS PROVIDER?

Electrolysis is less expensive than laser hair removal because it requires fewer treatments. A single session can cost between Rs 5000 and Rs 9000 per person depending on location. As with any cosmetic procedure, you must first consult a dermatologist. Any treatment plan should always be preceded by a consultation.

ARE MAINTENANCE SESSIONS IMPORTANT LATER?

Electrolysis, like laser hair removal, requires periodic touch-up sessions to maintain results. Dr. Sonavane says the number of treatments required depends on the volume of hair being treated, the technician's pace, and the hair's thickness. If the area is large and densely haired, it may be necessary to divide the treatment sessions.

Why Do I Have Acne?
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? Despite the fact that the exact cause of acne has yet to be determined. However, there are some things that can cause or worsen acne, such as: 1. Hormonal changes such as puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy can all cause acne. 2. Squeezing or picking at existing pimples 3. Excessive cleaning or scrubbing of the skin 4. Weather with high humidity 5. When you use excessive amounts of cosmetics or experiment with them, as well as harmful hair products and oil-based products such as sunscreen. 6. Corticosteroids and anabolic steroids for body building. 7. Acne on the forehead is linked to dandruff in the hair. What are the signs and symptoms of acne? Everyone is unique, and so are their symptoms. As a result, different symptoms indicate different types of acne. As an example: 1. If you have blackheads, they are open, clogged pores on the surface of your skin. 2. If you have whiteheads, they are plugged pores close to the skin's surface. 3. If you have papules, these are small, tender red/pink bumps on your skin. 4. Pustules are papules with pus on top if you have them. 5. If you have nodules, which are large, painful lumps deep beneath the skin's surface, 6. If you have cysts, they can be painful, pus-filled lumps located beneath the skin's surface. Acne is one of the most common skin conditions that can affect anyone, regardless of age. It is unquestionably a difficult condition to prevent and even more difficult to treat. Certain natural remedies, such as stress control and weight loss help tremendously. If you are suffering from acne do consider discussing it with your dermatologist. Medical science has advanced a lot in treating even the most severe forms of acne such as cystic acne and hormonal acne. You no longer need to suffer alone.
CBD for Sleep, CBD Benefits, Side Effects, and Treatment
People have long used the cannabis plant for medicinal and recreational purposes. Compounds called cannabinoids in the plant are responsible for the effects on the brain, and the two most abundant of these are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). People use CBD for a variety of reasons, including reducing seizures, anxiety, and pain. Some studies have demonstrated that CBD may also be a sleep aid. In this article, we look at whether it works and any associated risks. What the research says In the last decade, growing public interest in the benefits of marijuana, and CBD in particular, has encouraged researchers to study its effects. Early studies indicate that high dosages of CBD may support sleep. One investigation found that, compared with a placebo, a CBD dosage of 160 milligrams (mg) increased sleep duration. The researchers also concluded that the placebo, 5 mg of the insomnia drug nitrazepam, and 40, 80, and 160 mg of CBD helped the participants fall asleep. The stress hormone levels of cortisol are typically peak in the morning, but people with insomnia may have high cortisol levels at night. Independent of insomnia, having high cortisol levels at night is associated with an increased nighttime awakening. In one study on the effects of CBD, researchers found that cortisol levels decreased more significantly when participants took 300 or 600 mg of CBD oil. These results suggest that CBD affects the release of cortisol, possibly acting as a sedative. A more recent analysis of CBD and sleep recruited 103 participants who had anxiety or poor sleep. The researchers studied the effects of CBD combined with those of other prescribed medications. The CBD dosages ranged from 25–175 mg. The researchers found that 25 mg was the most effective dosage for anxiety and that addressing troubled sleep required higher dosages. During the 3-month study, the investigators followed up with the participants monthly. At the first follow-up, 66.7% reported an improvement in sleep, but 25% had worsened sleep. 56.1% of the participants reported improved sleep at the second, but 26.8% had worsened sleep. The researchers conclude that although CBD might help people sleep in the short term, the effects may not be sustained. Side effects and other risks of CBD Overall, the available evidence suggests that CBD is well-tolerated. Some people report fatigue and mental sedation with CBD use, but researchers believe this may be related to the dosage. Taking 10–400 mg of CBD per day for an extended period and by different routes did not have a toxic effect on participants in a large retrospective study. Even dosages of up to 1,500 mg per day were well-tolerated, other researchers report. However, determining whether there are long-term risks of CBD use will require further studies. So far, no reports of lethal CBD overdoses exist. Some researchers may be concerned about CBD abuse, but information on significant complications is limited. One study indicates that dosages of 400–700 mg of CBD, which is considered high, can aggravate cognitive deficits in people with schizophrenia. Combining CBD and THC may, however, improve cognition. Researchers do report that CBD may cause other adverse effects, including: alterations of cell viability in studies conducted in cell cultures decreased fertilization capacity inhibition of drug metabolism in the liver reduced activity of P-glycoprotein and other drug transporters If these effects on drug metabolism and transportation are confirmed, it would indicate that CBD interferes with other medications. Overall, more research is necessary. Still, it is suitable for anyone who wants to use CBD to speak with a healthcare provider first. Check out the best CBD for sleep at Sweet Dream Beauty website.
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.
Pulling Teeth With Coconut Oil
I haven't used tooth paste in a year or so. And at 38 years old, still cavity-free! That's because I use a fabulous (and natural) method called oil-pulling. There isn't a toothpaste on the planet (that I know of) that can do these six things, and not contain hazardous material such as bleach, sodium fluoride, triclosan, and sodium lauryl sulfate, just to name a few. Do I brush my teeth? Of course! But I do so before I pull with oil and again right after. I am sharing this card with you because it because a hot topic in the comments of @JordanHamilton's card about Washing Your Toothbrush, which you can see here. Here's how I go about making my own in batches: Ingredients: * Natural coconut oil * Peppermint essential oil * Eucalyptus essential oil * Myrrh essential oil Tools: * Sheet pan (that fits in the freezer) * Aluminum foil * Miniature paper candy cups * Squeeze bottle (with a tip) 1. Place a sheet of aluminum foil over a baking sheet (to catch your drips, drops and mistakes). 2. Set out as many candy paper cups that you can fit onto the sheet. 3. Melt the oil and place into a squeeze bottle. 4. Carefully, fill each cup ALMOST TO THE TOP. Leave a smidge of space at the top. 5. Add ONE DROP of each of your essential oils to the cups. Go in order so you don't get confused. 6. Place the tray on a flat surface in the freezer. A fridge will work too. 7. Be sure to simply lay a sheet of aluminum foil over the tray. Don't seal it, just lay it. 8. Let these harden all the way and store them in a freezer ziplock bag in the fridge. I hope you all found this super helpful. This is super easy and doable. I hope you give this a try. @alywoah @TurtleyTurtles @keith2web @LAVONYORK @EasternShell @Animaniafreak @atmi @kekers96 @buddyesd @DevonArce @MaricelvaRomero @CallMeMsDragon @stephosorio @petname83 @rhanes @AlyssaGelet818 @DeniseNishikawa @AlexisRiver @AlyssaGelet818 @ScarletMermaid @kimnam94 @SarahRegulski @MikeyJBenedict @LysetteMartinez @BlackXShield @YunBao @darcmana @daljiyong @FalseLove @anitadutoit @MyAffairWith @SarahHm11 @moralesdaisy199 @yashiracruz @leinyhmen01 @SigDev @humairaa @SeoInHan @IzamarPalomo @JelliBelli111 @spacewasp @PrincessNae @karolinehoffma
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

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.
