Have You Ever Considered Laser Hair Removal?

Traditional hair removal processes, such as waxing, shaving, and tweezing are effective but time-consuming. They don’t deliver a long-term solution for hair removal, plus they often result in nicks, bumps, and ingrown hairs.

Fortunately, technological advancements led to the invention of an innovative hair removal system that not only offered a long-term solution to hair reduction, but also eliminated those irritating little problems. Laser hair removal has been around for over ten years, and is one of the fastest growing systems for removing unwanted hair.

The allure of laser hair removal can be attributed to its convenience, effectiveness, and efficiency. It is a gentle way to permanently reduce unwanted hair from nearly any area of your body. So, how is it done?

The Laser Hair Removal Procedure – What To Expect

Laser hair removal is most ideal when your hair is in the growth stage. But a few days before the treatment, or on the morning of the procedure, the areas to be treated should be shaved. On the actual day of the procedure, you can expect the following:

  • Adjustment of the laser equipment according to the color, thickness, and position of the hair being treated. Your skin color is also taken into consideration.
  • Depending on the light source used, you and your technician may be required to wear eye protection.
  • In some cases, a cold gel or special cooling device may be applied on your skin to protect the outer layers and keep the laser light from penetrating your skin.
  • The technician will then illuminate a pulse of light to the treatment section and observe the area for a few minutes to establish that optimum settings were used, while checking for adverse reactions.

When the treatment is complete, you may be given anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, ice packs, or cold water to ease any discomfort.

Since hair grows in cycles, the procedure should be done in a series of 4-6 sessions, so you can schedule your next appointment 4-5 weeks later.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

There are numerous advantages of choosing laser hair removal over traditional techniques, including:

  • Application on virtually any body area: the technique can be used for facial hair removal, particularly in the chin, upper lip, and eyebrow, as well as other body parts like the chest, back, underarms, arms, back, legs, and bikini, genital, and pubic area.
  • Precision: lasers can be used to selectively target dark, coarse hairs, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
  • Speed: each laser pulse takes a split second to treat many hairs simultaneously, so the technique can treat an area the size of a quarter every second. Small facial areas can be treated in under a minute, while larger areas, like the chest may take around one hour.
  • Permanent reduction in unwanted hair, allowing you to enjoy smooth, soft skin immediately after the treatment.

While laser hair removal procedures may seem costly at first, it will save you money in the long run. You won’t have to make endless purchases of razors, depilatory creams, shaving cream, or even have to schedule waxing appointments; hence, the efficiency, effectiveness, and convenience.

Plastic Surgery Makes People’s Dreams Come True!

They say imitation is the most genuine form of flattery, so celebrities must feel some sort of pride and accomplishment when some fans go to great lengths to copy their “look”. Here are some interesting fans whose stories are certainly newsworthy, as well as highlight the power of plastic surgery and how it really can make dreams come true!

Regular People Who Transformed Into Celebrities With Plastic Surgery

1. Toby Sheldon as Justin Bieber

Toby Sheldon, aka Tobias Strebel, a Los Angeles singer and songwriter spent five years of various plastic surgery procedures to look exactly like Justin Bieber, despite the 14 year age difference he had with him. He went for the whole package with procedures performed on the temple, cheeks, lips, eyes, and even the special framing. He was truly a “Belieber”.

2. Lisa Connell as Demi Moore

Lisa Connell, a terminal cancer patient, announced that she wanted like to look like Demi Moore so she could die beautiful. The “Ghost” actress made frantic attempts to stop Lisa from undergoing the procedure telling her that she was beautiful just the way she is via Twitter. However, this did not stop Connell. Instead, she turned to plastic surgery to make her dream become reality using liposuction, breast implants, an eyebrow lift, and many alterations to her skin and teeth. Truly a touching story.

3. Myla Sinanaj as Kim Kardashian

Myla Sinanaj is Kris Humphries’ ex. Kim Kardashian is also Kris Humphries’ ex. Myla enjoys personally competing with Kim Kardashian so much that she turned to plastic surgery in order to directly compete with her. She underwent cosmetic procedures including breast implants, lip injections, and lower back liposuction in an attempt to make her body look more like that of the reality TV star. Who do you believe looks better?

4. Ashley Horn as Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay’s “long lost” half-sister, Ashley, performed five procedures at age 18 to look like her sister. The procedures included rhinoplasty, fat injections in her chin and upper cheeks, and some refinement underneath her cheeks and jawline. After careful inspection, her results turned out quite nice.

5. Miki Jay as Michael Jackson

The UK resident and mother of three, Miki Jay, became obsessed with the King of Pop after winning a talent show in 1991. She had procedures performed on her nose, cheeks, and chin to look like Jackson. Her change seems to have been profitable as she claims to make $240,000 annually as a professional impersonator. Plastic surgery pays off in more than one way!

The Change is Real

Plastic surgeries have been known to not only transform a person’s image, but also boost their confidence and self-esteem. Many people feel happier with their new look, and while looking like a particular star may not necessarily give them the same influence that the celebrity has, it must feel nice to occasionally be mistaken for that star!

Ariel Winter on Breast Reduction: “I’ve Been Struggling for Many Years”

Ariel Winter, a popular young actress known for her role on Modern Family highlights the emotional pain that many other women feel as a result of their large breasts. And the worst part is it’s something they initially had zero control over. She opened up about her surgery on a blog featured on Glamour News.

“I remember being in my sister’s wedding and being so flat and thinking, ‘I just wish I would grow boobs!’ and then overnight I did. But then they kept growing and growing and growing and it didn’t seem like they were going to stop. It’s hard enough being a teenager in life, but being on one of the most popular and critically acclaimed sitcoms drew heightened interest. I was 15 years old with [size] F [breasts],”

Reason for Breast Reduction: Physically & Emotionally Draining

Large breasts can take a monumental toll on one’s self-confidence and esteem. This is not uncommon for women who bear large breasts. Ariel mentions the difficulty of finding bras and clothes that she felt comfortable in. She also noted that her breasts would cause her enough pain to the point where she would have to stay hunched over on set just to cope.

She couldn’t take it anymore.

She underwent breast reduction surgery on June 4th, 2015 from a size 32F to a size 34D. She acknowledges the physical differences that the media will publicize, but it’s the emotional aspect that she was most concerned of. She truly feels like a new person as a result of the procedure.

Large breasts are commonly known for:

  • Back, neck, and shoulder pains that range in severity
  • Poor posture
  • Cuts and rashes around the breasts
  • Deep grooves in the shoulders
  • Shortness of breath issues
  • Emotional pain from a variety of sources (i.e. unwanted stares)
  • Interfere with physical activities and/or sports

Breast reduction is the answer.
