LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Are you tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing? Do you get razor bumps or acne-like breakouts when you get rid of unwanted hair?

Thanks to advances in technology, most people can safely have laser hair removal.

BENEFITS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL:

Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs also wont be that time consuming.

ACNES

 

Acne is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin.Acne is characterized by areas of blackheads,white heads or pimples, greasy skin, and possible scarring. The resulting appearance can lead to anxiety reduced self esteem and in extreme cases depression.

Genetics is thought to be the cause of acne in 80% of cases.Acne primarily affects areas of skin with a relatively high number of oil glands, including the face, upper part of the chest, and back.During puberty, in both sexes, acne is often brought on by an increase in hormones such as testerone.

TIPS FOR PREVENTING ACNES:

 KEEP YOUR SKIN CLEAN-Whether or not you have acne, it’s important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin’s surface. Washing more often than twice daily is not necessarily better; it may do more harm than good. Use warm, not hot, water and a mild facial cleanser. Using a harsh soap (like deodorant body soap) can hurt the already inflamed skin and cause more irritation.Avoid scrubbing your skin harshly with a washcloth, an exfoliating glove, or loofah (a coarse-textured sponge). Gently wash it with  a very soft cloth or your hands. Always rinse well, and then dry your face with a clean towel.  Also, use the washcloth only once.

  MOISTURIZE- Many acne products contain ingredients that dry the skin, so always use a moisturizer that minimizes dryness and skin peeling. Look for “noncomedogenic” on the label, which means it should not cause acne. There are moisturizers made for oily, dry, or combination skin.

   WATCH  WHAT YOU PUT ON YOUR HAIR-Avoid using fragrances, oils, pomades, or gels on your hair. If they get on your face, they can block your skin’s pores and irritate your skin. Use a gentle shampoo and conditioner. Oily hair can add to the oil on your face, so wash your hair often, especially if you’re breaking out. Got long hair? Keep it pulled away from your face.
