A Bright Future for Removing Unwanted Hair

Laser technology has developed dramatically over the last 10 years. Even as recently as the mid 90's people interested in improving their skin or removing unwanted hair were limited in their choices. As science has expanded our understanding of heat and light, the power of lasers to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical needs has grown dramatically. From LasikTM to laser hair removal, port-wine stain treatment or even tattoo removal, patients around the world are seeing their problems disappear under a tiny beam of light.

Leg and facial veins quite the nuisance, aren't they? Leg and facial veins are bothersome at best, unattractive at worst. Fortunately, with cosmetic laser vein removal, you can make yourself look and feel a whole lot better- often times, with as little as only one or two visits. Candela's lasers are safe and effective on all skin types.

A wrinkle is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes such as glycation or, temporarily, as the result of prolonged (more than a few minutes) immersion in water. Wrinkling in the skin is caused by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors. With prolonged water exposure, the outer layer of skin starts to absorb water. The skin doesn't expand evenly, however, causing it to wrinkle. Depletion of water in the body, as occurs with dehydration, can also cause this puckering of the skin. Cortisol causes degradation of skin collagen.

Many people notice signs of aging when skin begins to sag around the face and neck. Laser skin tightening is appropriate for men and women of all skin types and skin tones who wish to achieve dramatic results without painful surgery and lengthy recovery times. The most successful laser skin tightening candidates experience permanent results as the collagen under their skin is regenerated, producing a more youthful complexion.

Hair bumps are a direct result of ingrown hairs and come from several things including: improper shaving, waxing, or tweezing techniques, a dirty barber’s blade, dead skin in the hair follicles, and coarse hair that grows in a tight curl pattern. Ingrown hairs develop at the end of the hair shaft. They have a sharpened edge and attempt to grow straight, however something prevents them from doing so. As a result, they curl back into the same hair follicle. This creates dreadful, ugly, and often confidence destroying facial or razor bumps. Yet, razor bumps are nothing more than an inflammatory response from your body to the infections caused by the ingrown hairs. This inflammatory response or bump can be visually seen as a pustule, mini red bumps, or purple raised bump. The infected areas are often itchy and red, with bumps that spread quickly. The more you scratch your ingrown bumps, the more abrasions you will have. This condition is known as Pseudofolliculitis barbae.
