Laser Hair Removal Risks

Laser Hair Removal Burns

One of the most common dangers associated with improperly performed laser hair removal procedures are burns, which may occur if the skin, rather than the hair follicle, absorbs the laser energy. It is extremely important to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for laser hair removal before undergoing treatment in order to minimize the risk of burns as well as other possible side effects.

Though rare, laser hair removal burns occur more frequently on patients with darker skin, as skin with darker pigment absorbs the laser more readily. While most instances of laser hair removal burns are mild, there have been a number of severe burn cases.

Changes in Skin Tone

Two of the more noticeable, but less painful, side effects of laser hair removal are hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. Hyperpigmentation refers to the darkening of skin that may occur after the laser hair removal treatment. The laser can oftentimes stimulate melanin production, creating a reaction that is similar to getting a suntan. Hypopigmentation, on the other hand, refers to the lightening of skin that can occur after a laser hair removal treatment. The absorption of laser light can, in some cases, inhibit melanin production, leading to a loss of pigment. Like hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation occurs more often in patients with darker skin. And, while hyperpigmentation is typically reversible, hypopigmentation is not.
Unsuccessful Treatment - Wasting Money
There is a chance the treatment will not be successful and you will end up wasting a lot of your money. Therefore it is very important to make sure you research what you are going to do first and go to someone qualified with a good reputation.

Awkward Hair Removal

Do you have hair in embarrassing places here are some ways you can get rid or it.

1. You can try shaving it off or plucking the extra hair off: 
But, the downside is that hair that has been merely shaved off tends to grow back...and it ALWAYS seems to grow back quicker than you''d like it to, doesn''t it?
A more permanent solution is probably needed if the the hair really makes you look ugly...

2. Laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is another option to look into if you have some hair that has to "get gone" for good...It seems that the interest in laser hair removal systems has become really popular recently.
And while laser hair removal probably has some fans out there, laser can be costly. However, some people seem to be genuinely happy with the results of laser hair, it can be a viable option to investigate.

3. Hair removal creams & lotions. 
Hair removal creams can be WAY cheaper than the laser hair removal options &
They may be a better long term solution than using a regular razor or set of tweezers.

Weight Loss Supplements

1. Apidexin
Easily our favorite, we picked Apidexin because it is a fat loss pill, not a weight loss pill. Too many pills use extreme amounts of diuretics to make you lose only the water weight that you will put immediately back on. Apidexin has several clinically tested ingredients that have shown to burn fat in studies.

2. Phenphedrine 
It is one of the only diet supplements that targets the hormones in the brain that cause hunger attacks and the desire to stress eating. It suppresses your appetite and increases your metabolism. It also increases insulin to deliver energy to your muscles while simultaneously decreasing body fat. By targeting hunger cravings where they start, Phenphedrine becomes one of the most powerful weight loss supplements on the market, and one of the few that has a unique approach to weight loss.

3. Liporexall 
It incorporates a series of patented ingredients to perform several varied, yet important tasks. Super CitriMax curbs appetite, burns fat and results in significant weight loss without side effects. ChromeMate helps regulate the amount of sugar in the blood. Pinnothin significantly increases the release of the hunger-suppressing hormones sending signals of satiation to the brain and can help to control appetite

4. DecaSlim 
Was created by a college student in Hawaii after learning about 10 "super foods" on Oprah. He ended up with a phenomenally successful and powerful weight loss supplement that included antioxidant rich Acai and Green Tea, Flaxseed, Buckwheat, Soybeans and several other all-natural and incredibly potent ingredients.

5. TestoRipped 
Is a fast acting, powerful weight loss supplement for men. It contains several proven, safe and effective fat burners, such as Caffeine Anhydrous, Synephrine, Guggulsterones, Yohimbine and Cinnamon. What we really like about TestoRipped, however, is it lean muscle building ingredients. Creatine Ethyl Ester, Arginine AKG and Tribulus Terrestris work together to boost testosterone and increase workout intensity

Ways to get rid of Acne

1. Laser Removal 
Lasers utilizing pulsating lights can be focused on problematic parts of the skin, producing heat beneath the skin's surface. This heat causes thermal damage to the sebaceous glands but doesn't damage the surface of your skin. Laser treatment reduces acne by half after just two sessions

2. Sandblast 
Microdermabrasion is less intense than that, and way cooler. A doctor using a wandlike device bombards your face with tiny particles of aluminum oxide. It sounds painful, but it doesn't hurt. Simultaneous to the bombardment, the device vacuums up the particles from your skin, so you won't leave the clinic looking like you just fell asleep face-down on the beach.

3.Try Isotretinoin
Isotretinoin is known by a variety of brand names (Accutane, for one), and it's been proven to be effective for treating severe acne. Interestingly, nobody is quite sure why isotretinoin works to reduce acne, but it's believed that it reduces the amount of sebum production

4.Consider Birth Control Pills
Women who are dealing with acne can look to an unconventional source of relief: birth control pills. Not only can oral contraceptives help regulate menstrual cycles and prevent pregnancy, a prescription for these once-a-day pills may also be your ticket to clearer skin.

5.Stock Up on Salicylic Acid
Though it doesn't kill bacteria or have any effect uponsebum production, salicylic acid can be useful in your efforts to get rid of acne. Salicylic acid causes your skin to shed its outermost layer.

6.Buy Some Benzoyl Peroxide
There are a number of products available, but most involve a cream or gel that is applied to broken-out portions of the face. Benzoyl peroxide kills the P. acnes bacteria that causes inflammation in a blocked pore. It may take about three weeks for results to occur, so be patient.
