Laser Hair Removal and the Related Procedure

Excessive and Unwanted hair has been a recurrent complain made by women and men of all ages. While we spend a great amount of our time in getting rid of the hair, we never probably come across some permanent and effective solution. While the traditional methods of hair removal like shaving, waxing and electrolysis are time consuming and temporary, laser hair removal process is fast becoming a popular method of hair removal.

Procedures like shaving and waxing cause a lot of dryness and irritation on the epidermis of the skin, laser hair removal really seems to be a plausible and practical option, observes an expert from a renowned hair salon. Also because laser hair removal works well for areas which include majority of problem areas like chin, face and arms amongst others. This permanent hair removal performed by professional plastic surgeon comes with benefits of minimal risk and so the emerging preferences.


  • During the process, a laser beam is concentrated at the problem area of the skin. This beam or light is attracted towards the melanin of the hair follicles that heats up the follicles and destroys them from the root, thereby destroying these permanently.

  • Being a safer option laser hair removal process hardly disrupts the skin surface. The procedure works ideal on people with light skin and dark hair. It is important to note that it is not a single day process; it might as well need several meetings and sittings with the doctor for a long term benefit.

  • For those thinking its side-effects on the skin, breath light! Since our skin cools down easily and quickly there are hardly any ill-effects of the treatment. As a precautionary measure at the end of every sitting the skin is treated with a cooling cream to ensure that it remains unaffected by the heat produced by the beam.

  • The hair removal process on face and under the arms require just 15 minutes, however other body parts may need at least a time span of an hour to get rid of hair woes.

Oatmeal for Skin!

A bowl of piping hot oatmeal is the healthiest way to start your day, says everybody. And why shouldn’t it be? Oats contain the just the right mix of proteins that keeps everybody fuelled up. And as it turns out, it is not just an apple a day that keeps the doctor away; oatmeal helps a great deal, too.

Many nutritionists and experts from makeup courses say that sweet oats are the right way to start the day. After all, oats are loaded with fibre; just one cup contains over 10 grams of proteins.

Oats are a nutritional powerhouse, and yet can be used for many DIY treatments. Have a look! 

Treating acne:  Cooked oatmeal is one of the best remedies for treating acne. Sounds unbelievable, right? Maybe, no. Here is all that you need to do (with oats!) to get rid of the acne.

Boils some oatmeal until it softens and keep it like that for over 15 minutes. Apply it over your face or on the affected area and rinse it off after 10 minutes with cold water. This absorbs all the excess oil and bacteria off your face, rejuvenates dead skin cells and helps combat acne, says a student of Cosmetology course for Beauty Skin.

Oats also help fight face dryness, especially during winters when skin becomes flaky and white. That is because oats contain polysaccharides which convert into a gel like substance when it comes in contact with water. It helps create a fine protective layer on the skin and hence keeps dryness at bay. You can make a mask of mashed bananas with a cup of crushed oatmeal and add a little of lukewarm milk to it. Create a paste of it, apply it to face and rinse with cold water after 15 minutes. This helps in replenishing the skin moisture and helps keep it soft, subtle and hydrated.
