Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

Tips For Scheduling Laser Hair Removal

by Michelle Austin

With summer coming, you might find yourself wanting to be sure that you can be confident at the beach by getting rid of any unwanted hair that you might have. Laser hair removal is a painless process that leaves many women looking and feeling their best. However, scheduling laser hair removal can be somewhat difficult if you don't know exactly what you're doing. Here are some tips for scheduling this procedure.

1. Make Sure You Give Yourself Time

Start getting laser hair removal early. You want to be certain that you have enough time to get in multiple sessions with the laser before you plan on going to the beach and showing off the job because it can take several sessions in order to get the best results possible. The average person sees best results within about  six sessions and those who have light skin might see best results sooner, whereas those who have darker skin might not see optimal results until session eight or higher simply because of how the laser targets the hair follicles. Giving yourself enough time will allow you to experience full reduction of hair. If you only have time for one or two sessions, you will still see some results, but it will be closer to 10% to 30% hair reduction, as opposed to the 100% hair reduction that you were probably hoping for.

2. Make Sure That You Wait Long Enough Between Sessions

After you have undergone laser hair removal, your body is going to start shedding the dead hair follicles. This process can start happening a few weeks after the process, although you can stimulate it by dry brushing and other exfoliation methods that will get rid of the dead skin that might be slowing down the shedding process. Watch the shedding process happens and mark the day when it is no longer happening. After that, try to wait three weeks to schedule your next session. Keep track of the day that different parts of your body stop shedding. For example, your leg hair might stop shedding more quickly than your underarm hair, so you are going to need to schedule different appointments for each of those places in order to get the timing right. If you had laser hair removal done on your face, you might need to wait longer simply due to the sensitivity of the area.

For more information, talk to a company that specializes in full body laser hair removal (like Florida Women's Center Inc). They will be able to give you a breakdown of how long you have to wait between sessions for each part of your body.
