Sick of Waxing and Shaving? Consider Laser Hair Removal

Woman in bathing suitWhen it comes to body hair, most of us prefer to shave it off. If you are unhappy with continuously shaving or waxing it, you may want to consider a laser removal treatment. Not only does this slow down the hair growth, but it can lead to a longer hair-free period after several treatments.

Laser hair removal is considered a cosmic treatment and is a perfect solution for those who:

  • Suffer frequently from razor bumps or ingrown hairs
  • Feel the need to shave every single day
  • Are very self-conscious of their body hair (i.e, dread wearing a bathing suit)

If you are considering getting advanced dermatology in Colorado in the form of laser hair removal, it’s important to limit the amount of waxing, plucking and shaving that you do six weeks prior to your scheduled appointment. You should also limit sun exposure as it can make the treatment less effective.

What to Expect at Your Appointment
If you have already scheduled an appointment for laser hair removal, there are a few things that you should be aware of. The laser equipment that is to be used will be adjusted so that it can properly treat the location of the hair. This means that the thickness, the color, and the location will need to be disclosed to the doctor.

You will need to wear eye protection, and you may be given a cooling device or gel to put on top of the outer layers of your skin. Once this is done, the light treatment will begin and the doctor will assess as he or she goes along to ensure that you have no adverse reactions to the laser. Recovery will only take a couple of days, but you will feel like you have been sunburned. Treated hair will fall out, and you will need to wear sunscreen to protect the color of the skin. New appointments can be scheduled every six weeks.

What Your Skin Irritation Could Mean, Part 1

Close-up of irritated skinThe skin is our body’s largest organ, and it can play a huge role in altering us about various medical conditions. As our first line of defense, the skin can show us when something is affecting us whether it’s sunburn, bug bite, or other irritation. Below are some of the most common skin symptoms and what they could mean.

Redness: Redness can be caused by a variety of different minor conditions. One possible cause is flushing, which can result from drinking alcohol, taking certain medications, or eating spicy food. Your skin can also flush during certain emotions and flushing can also signify menopause or extreme temperature changes. Another cause of redness is Rosacea, a skin condition that causes red patches on the face. Products containing rose water can help reduce redness and ladies who are self-conscious of the appearance can benefit from a few swipes of green concealer.

Rashes: A skin rash can signify a couple of different conditions, and it’s important to keep an eye on them. One of the most common skin rashes is caused by eczema, a type of dermatitis in the form of a dry, red rash that pops up anywhere on the body. Some viral infections, such as measles, chickenpox, and some sexually transmitted diseases, commonly cause skin rashes. Rashes can also signify an allergic reaction in the form of hives. It’s important to pay close attention to your body so that you can quickly identify these rashes and have them looked at.
