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!

Getting Laser Hair Removal? Know These 4 Things


Have you finally decided that you want to get laser hair removal, but still want to learn more about it? You'll definitely want to know the following things before you move forward with your first session.

Laser Hair Removal Works Best With Dark Hair On Light Skin

It's important to determine if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. That's because the procedure works best when there is a bigger contrast between the skin and the hair, which helps the laser target the hair. If you have very dark skin and dark hair, or light skin with light-colored hair, you may discover that you are not a good candidate for the procedure. 

Laser Hair Removal Has Some Discomfort

Know that the procedure of having the hair removed is not going to be completely pain-free. There will be some discomfort involved, with the length of the procedure depending on how big of a section of your body you are having treated. Many people compare the sensation with what it is like having a hot rubber band snapped on your skin. However, the sensation is quick and goes away just as fast. 

Laser Hair Removal Requires Multiple Treatments 

Make sure that you understand that laser hair removal will take multiple treatments for it to get to all the hairs. This is because multiple hairs grow out of a single follicle, and each hair needs to be exposed to the laser for it to be treated. With that in mind, your hair growth will be thinner and softer with each laser hair treatment. This can make the hair easier to manage on your own or even get the hair to a point where you are satisfied with the results and simply like that it is thinned out.

Laser Hair Removal Requires Minimal Aftercare

You can expect your skin to be a bit red after the procedure. There is a small amount of aftercare that you must do, which mainly involves keeping your skin covered and not in direct sunlight. You'll also want to avoid tanning beds as well, even though it is artificial sunlight. This will help ensure that your skin recovers properly and avoid any complications, such as swelling or blistering.

Reach out to a laser hair removal specialist in your area for more information about any concerns that you may have before your first treatment to deal with that unwanted hair.
