New Laser Hair Removal Promises Permanent Results  

When summer hits, we ladies think about it. Hair removal so our legs are smooth in shorts and bathing suits. But this year, there's a new option to get rid of that hair more permanently.. and less painfully.If you need unwanted hair to vanish for a long time it hurts. Whether you laser it, wax it, or use electrolysis. But now a simple new device is taking the hurt out of hair removal.

Laser surgery technician Eric Bernstein tested it on many people including workout personal trainer Gretchen Corialos who wants her whole body to be smooth. Erin Elmore an investment banker who was on season 3 of the Apprentice, and joining the test, Kate Beaver a dancer for the Philadelphia 76-ers.

They all bared their arm pits, and had regular laser hair removal under one arm.. and the new improved type under the other. Eric Bernstein says, "One of the drawbacks of laser hair removal is that it hurts. And the reason it hurts is because the hair takes up the light and produces heat. The more hair, the thicker the hair, the more it hurts."This is regular laser hair removal.

Erin Elmore says, ""I think the firing may have been more painful on my heart. This is more painful on my pits. Ha ha" Now the same lasering with this new invention. The PSF device that actually sucks up the skin. Kate Beaver says, "Definitely less pain. So which one would you pick next time. I would do this one again.

The one with less pain. Definitely."How does it work? Eric Bernstein says, "Our skin is only allowed to feel one sensation at a time. So we can feel pressure or we can feel pain. Given the choice, we'd all choose pressure. So what this device does is it suctions the skin so we feel a pressure sensation and we can't feel pain."Once you have laser hair treatments three times, you'll only need a touchup once or twice a year to keep the hair away. The cost for both armpits, 150 to 250-dollars.

Pubic Hair Removal - Tips When Shaving  

Pubic Hair Removal - Tips When Shaving

In some cultures pubic hair removal has been performed for centuries for hygiene and other reasons. Now it is becoming widely accepted all over the world and both men and women are keen to find a pubic hair removal method which suits them.

Shaving is inexpensive and easily done at home although there are certain precautions that need to be met. Additionally, new personal shavers which have come on the market in recent years make pubic hair removal by shaving a much easier option. (See resource box at the end of this article)

Use these tips to perform pubic hair removal safely if shaving is your choice:

Never use the old-fashioned switch-blade razor. It is quite unsuitable for pubic hair removal and can be dangerous.

Choose a female razor, obtainable from Wilkinson Sword or other well known razor manufacturers, rather than an ordinary safety razor. The design makes it much more difficult to cut yourself.

Opt for a more expensive good quality razor rather than a cheap throw away which is more likely to cause nicks, soreness and razor burns in this sensitive area.

If the pubic hair is thick and long use small scissors to trim down the hair to about a quarter of an inch. This will avoid blunting and clogging the razor too quickly.

Before performing a pubic hair removal session, wet a large, washcloth and lay it over the entire pubic area for two or three minutes.

Alternatively, take a long hot bath or stay in the shower for a while making sure the pubic area receives a lot of water. Pubic hair is coarser than head hair and needs more time to soften when carrying out pubic hair removal.

Apply plenty of shaving foam or gel over the area and leave for a few minutes to soften further. Ordinary soap is not suitable as it does not lock in the moisture to the hair the way a shaving preparation cream or gel does.

Experiment with different brands if you find some cause skin irritation. They contain various chemicals and you need to find one that suits you.

Pull the skin straight with your free hand and shave without applying pressure.

Shave upwards against the direction of the hair growth.

Make sure there is shaving foam on the skin each time you make a stroke with the razor.

Shaving bare skin can cause razor burn and can be especially painful in pubic hair removal.

Rinse the razor every couple of strokes as it will clog easily.

Rinse off and see any areas that may have been missed and again apply gel to that area and shave.

To make pubic hair removal less stressful for the skin, massage unscented Vitamin E oil into the pubic area after shaving.

To stop or reduce itching after shaving rub an ice cube over the area.

Alternatively, rub a little baby oil into the pubic area.

If you suffer from itchiness or blood spots, let the hair grow back for a week before shaving again.

Keep the shaven area well moisturized between shaves by using a skin moisturizer or baby lotion. This will reduce the uncomfortable effect the stubble may cause between shaves.

Ingrown hair can be a problem when shaving and it can be particularly uncomfortable when it appears in the pubic area. For full information on how to eliminate and prevent ingrown hairs you may wish to check out the web site at ingrown-hair-solutions.com (see resource box below).

Having fully educated yourself on pubic hair removal methods and procedures you should be able to get good results from the method you choose.

Pubic Hair Removal - Tips When Waxing  

Pubic Hair Removal - Tips When Waxing

Pubic hair removal is now a matter of concern for both men and women. For hygiene reasons alone many individuals choose to remove unwanted body hair in the pubic area, hence, the search for the best pubic hair removal method.

Waxing is one very popular method. It is inexpensive, it can be done from home, and the results last for some weeks in many cases.

Use these tips to get the best results if you choose to use waxing as your pubic hair removal method of choice:

Avoid showering and making the hair wet prior to waxing. Hair absorbs the water making it soft and less likely to adhere well to the wax. Tough hair is easier to pull off.

Be sure to test a small area of skin first to make sure there is no acute sensitivity or allergic reaction to pubic hair removal using waxing.

Hair should be at least 1/8 inch long. If it isn't wait until it reaches this length.

Be sure to wash the skin thoroughly and dry it well beforehand to remove any lotions or oils which may prevent the wax from adhering closely to the skin.

Heat the wax carefully so as not to overheat and thus burn the skin when applying. Test on a small area first.

The consistency should be soft rather than runny.

If pain and discomfort is a main concern use a pain reducing gel or cream available from pharmacists. These solutions should be applied 30 to 60 minutes before waxing so the skin is numbed beforehand.

Apply a thin layer of wax in the direction of the hair growth and peel back with a rapid movement close to the skin.

Do not pull up or out, rather pull back.

Clean the skin with a warm moist towel afterwards to remove excess wax.

Avoid wearing tight clothing over freshly waxed areas to minimize the risk of irritation and ingrown hairs. 24-48 hours after pubic hair removal waxing, exfoliate the skin (with a Loofa sponge for example) to prevent the dead skin from accumulating and causing hair to become ingrown.

Best Positions When Performing A Waxing Pubic Hair Removal Session:

Option 1: Sit in a chair with your feet up above your waist and legs spread apart.
Option 2. Sit with one leg propped above your waist and the other leg resting on the floor.
Option 3. Lie on your back with legs wide apart and raised in the air so that all the waxable areas are spread taut.
Option 4. Lie on your side with the bottom leg straight out and the top leg bent at the knee and tucked behind the straight leg.
Option 5. Bend the knees and keep the legs wide apart so the genital areas are easy to work on. Put a mirror on the ground if necessary for better control.

Many persons prefer to have the waxing pubic hair removal procedure carried out at a salon by a professional. See the resource box for a helpful article on what to expect from what is called Brazilian Waxing.

Laser Hair Removal- What You Always Wanted To Know

Laser hair removal is getting more popular everyday. There are many questions in mind of people who would like to get hair removed by laser. What is the result with laser hair removal? Does that cause pain? Does laser hair removal cost very much? Is laser hair removal safe? Such questions need to be answered. Let us look at them. Before that let us find out about how laser removes hair.

When laser is focused on skin, it gets attracted to the pigment of the hair follicle. The laser heats the hair follicles and burns it at the root. The darker the color of the hair, better the results. Similarly the skin should be light colored otherwise the skin also attracts laser and gets blistered. With latest developments this possibility is getting eliminated, but you must talk to your physician about your hair and skin color and the results expected. Ideally there should be substantial difference between skin color and hair color.

1.The biggest advantage of laser hair removal is the freedom of getting hair removed from different body parts. Except the region near the eyes, you can get all the body treated for hair removal with laser. You need not worry any more about removing hair from bikini are, back, legs, shoulders, hands or any other body part. Laser can safely remove hair from all over the body except the region near the eyes. Your technician will tell you more about this.

2. Most of the latest lasers have no side effects except redness and swelling that disappears after few days. If you are a dark colored person, you may want to talk with the technician and physician about the equipment they have and the possible side effects on your skin after laser hair removal.

3.Number of laser hair removal treatments required- hair grows in cycles. You have to therefore get hair removed at intervals. All the hair from an area cannot be removed at a time. Your technician will advise you about the interval between each cycle. Normally you can expect to get hair removed in three treatments.

4. Results with laser hair removal - though laser does not remove hair permanently, it produces long lasting results. The hair that grows back will be finer and less colored. you can painlessly get hair removed from difficult areas of the body and the procedure is not painful when anesthetic issued.

Are There Such Things As Permanent Hair Removal Laser Treatments?  

Permanent hair removal laser treatments have become increasingly popular alternatives to shaving, waxing, depilatory use, and tweezing. Many consumers are simply tired of the tedium, messiness, expense, and discomfort which accompany the traditional hair removal options, and are looking for a way to rid themselves of their unwanted hair once and for all.

Electrolysis, until recently, has been the only available form of permanent hair removal. Electrolysis requires that an extremely small metallic probe be inserted into each individual hair; a mild electrical current is applied to destroy the follicle. The procedure is maddeningly slow, very expensive, and extremely painful. Electrolysis, for those reasons should be limited to very small bodily areas like the cheeks and brows.

How Permanent Hair Removal Laser treatments Work Permanent hair removal laser treatments, however, target unwanted bodily hair with a laser light controlled by a trained technician. Pulses of laser light will hit the pigment of the unwanted hair, which absorbs and is destroyed by the laser’s energy. Properly controlled permanent hair removal laser applications destroy hair without harming the surrounding skin, and are done with the aid of topical anesthetics to eliminate the minor pain which some people experience as “snaps" from the individual laser pulses.

Permanent hair removal laser treatment is not instant; it will be done over a series of sessions which can last several months. This is necessary because not all hair follicles are actively producing hair at the same time, and those in their resting stages early in the course of the permanent hair removal laser treatments will be actively growing hair later on. These undergoing the treatments can expect their skin to be slightly red for, at the minimum, a day following them.

The prospect of permanent hair removal laser treatments can, for many people, seem like the perfect answer to unwanted hair. But while laser hair removal will produce long-term results lasting from several months to several years, there is no guarantee that the hair will not eventually return. When it does, it will very probably be sparser, and can be treated with another, shorter round of laser hair removal sessions.

Costs And Effectiveness Those considering permanent hair removal laser treatment can expect each session to cost at least $50, and probably considerably more, depending on the part of the body involved. So having it done on small areas, to remove unwanted facial hair or to thin the eyebrows, may be the least expensive treatment for women; men may want it to treat unwanted back or neck nape hair. Some women also have it done along the bikini line and legs.

The effectiveness of permanent hair removal laser treatments varies from individual to individual. Much of its success is determined by a person’s complexion and hair color; to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for permanent hair removal laser treatments, talk to some experts.

Laser Hair Removal Cost and Considerations  

Laser Hair Removal Cost and Considerations

So, you're tired of shaving and waxing and ready to explore alternatives ways to save time. Laser hair removal cost and additional considerations are the next step. People choose to remove their hair for a variety of reasons, and sometimes, those reasons are medically based. Still, most people opt for hair removal for cosmetic reasons.

Laser hair removal cost, and some other issues, should be carefully weighed before making any decision. Laser hair removal cost can be determined by what method you choose. Laser hair removal is done through electrolysis, but there are three different methods of such, and the laser hair removal cost of each one is based on those considerations. Each method targets and damages hair follicles.

Galvanic electrolysis employs a direct current of electricity that is passed down through the needle and into the hair follicle. Thermolysis uses a high frequency that alternates current passed through the needle to the hair follicle. The blend method uses a combination of the galvanic and thermolysis methods. Laser hair removal cost is also determined by which method is used.

All laser hair removal methods consist of an invisible layer of light that is able to penetrate the surface layers of skin without damaging. Heat from the laser damages only the follicle and hair, preventing its ability to re grow. When weighing laser hair removal cost and safety, keep in mind that laser hair removal requires multiple sessions, and that repeated visits must continue. In time, hair grows back thinner, to lesser degrees. In the beginning, one may generally have another treatment within 4-6 weeks. Gradually, this time frame will increase. Laser hair removal cost is high, but for some, it's worth it.

When considering laser hair removal cost, be advised that results often depend on the skill and experience of the professional doing the procedure. While many people don't feel pain during the procedure, it all depends on a person's pain threshold. Bear in mind also that laser hair removal cost might be exacerbated by the need to treat side effects such as reddening and swelling of the area, though upon occasion, mild burning and scarring does occur. Secondary infections may occur, including impetigo or, in some cases, a reactivation of herpes simplex. Use good judgment when thinking about laser hair removal cost and other considerations.

Laser hair removal cost can range from between $400-$500 per session. Be aware that most doctors advise that their patients schedule at least four sessions for satisfactory results. The procedure can take anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the size of the area being worked on and there is no need to avoid work or play after laser hair removal. Laser hair removal cost is also determined by the professional providing the service, so it's wise to shop around. However, laser hair removal cost should not be a deciding factor when making a decision, so remember the old adage, you get what you pay for.
