Shedding the Stigma Surrounding Cosmetic Surgery

I'm on a personal mission to get rid of the stigma that still surrounds cosmetic surgery in many regions. Why am I on this mission? A small surgery changed my life, and I have never regretted it. I was a very shy child with little confidence due to my protruding ears. It sounds like such a small problem to many people, but it affected me and my self esteem greatly. I saved up in high school while working a part-time job, and as soon as I could afford it, I got my parents to agree to let me have my ears "pinned back" when I was 16. My confidence skyrocketed immediately, and I finally began enjoying life for the first time. I want to help others facing similar problems know that they are not alone, and I hope I can touch many lives with my new blog!

4 Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal


Are you tired of shaving or waxing hair on your body and want to get rid of it for good? Thankfully, laser hair removal is a practical option for those that are tired of dealing with hair. Here are a few questions that you have about laser hair removal before you decide to get it done.

How Do You Know You're A Good Candidate For Laser Hair Removal? 

Some people are good candidates for laser hair removal, which is due to a combination of their skin color and the type of hair they are trying to remove. Laser hair removal works best when there is a distinct contrast between the color of the hair and the skin. That's why it works best for people that have light skin and hairs that are thick and dark. The laser will easily be able to identify the hair and make sure that it doesn't grow back.

Will Laser Hair Removal Be Done In A Single Treatment?

While it may sound great to get one treatment and be completely finished, you will need multiple treatments with laser hair removal. This is because it takes a few treatments to end up getting all of the hair that grows out of your follicles. After the first treatment, the procedure only gets the initial hairs that are growing and visible. You'll need to return several times to completely get rid of the hair or fewer times if you are simply looking to reduce the amount of hair that grows. 

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent? 

In most situations, your hair removal will be permanent once the treatment is complete. There are some exceptions though since hormones cause hair follicles in the face to regrow over time. However, those follicles on other parts of the body are not going to regrow, and the hair will be gone for good. 

Is Laser Hair Removal Expensive? 

The overall cost of laser hair removal will depend on several factors. The first one is the size of the area that you want to treat. A man looking to remove all of his back hair will be charged more than a woman wanting to remove hair from her armpits. The other consideration is how many treatments are needed. Someone that has a light amount of hair will have quicker results when compared to someone that has a lot of hair with several growth cycles. In addition, be aware that insurance does not cover the cost of laser hair removal.
