Laser Hair Removal Pre Treatment Requirements

Laser hair removal is performed to remove unwanted hair from the body. This sort of a unwanted hair is the result of a condition known as hirsutism. Hirsutism can occur because drugs or medical conditions, including polycystic ovaries in women and high blood pressure drugs like minoxidal.

The types of lasers preferred for removing hair are the alexandrite and ruby lasers, that penatrate and destroy the hair follicle, which is the organ responsible for producing hair. Laser hair removal is best for fair-skinned, dark-haired people, because the laser not only destroys the hair follicle but destroys the pigmentation which gives the hair its colour.

The consultant will first take the patient’s medical history. He or she will need to know if the patient is taking any medications and if the patient smokes or drinks. Medications include vitamins and herbal supplements, because sometimes these substances can interfere with the healing process.

It is important to stay out of the sun and avoid tanning salons or even tanning lotions. This period of time might be as long as a month and a half. Having a tan might increase the risk of hypopigmentation or skin lightening. If the patient already has a tan, the treatment might need to wait until the tan fades completely.

The patient should also avoid other means of hair removal including electrolysis, waxing, plucking or anything else that might interfere with the hair follicle. The patient will still be allowed to shave because the follicle is undisturbed. Indeed, some dermatologists recommend that the patient shave before the treatment since shaving might increase the chances of a good outcome.

The length of the treatment depends on how much of the body is being treated. A small area might only need a few minutes to be treated, while a large area like the back might take hours. There might be some swelling after the treatment, but this can be soothed with ice, ointment or cream. Once again, the patient will need to stay out of the sun for a while then use sunscreen whenever he or she goes out into the sun. Most patients are quite pleased with a professionally done laser hair removal.

Top Tips for Fuller Lips

If you aren’t lucky enough to have been born with full, pouty lips like Angelina Jolie or Rosie Huntingdon-Whitely, don’t despair. There are a few things you can do to create the appearance of fuller lips, some of which will be particularly useful to older women whose lips have naturally become thinner and less defined with age.
full lips

Try these lip-enhancing tricks:

1. Try a lip plumping lip gloss
If you can put up with the slight stinging sensation, lip plumping glosses and other products can make your lips look quite a lot fuller. These products slightly irritate the lips for more of a bee-stung look.

2. Use cosmetics to create a new lip line
Cosmetics brand Elizabeth Arden recommends using concealer or foundation to erase your existing lip line, then drawing a new one in slightly above and slightly below your lip line with a natural-toned lip pencil. Avoid making this line too exaggerated or using a lip pencil that is too dark. Fill in your lips with a lip liner (except for the very centre), dab a little concealer in the centre and then apply lipstick. Finish with a shimmery lip gloss for a gorgeous full-lipped look.

3. Take care of your lips
It goes without saying that your lips will look healthier and fuller if they are properly looked after. Make sure you stay really hydrated by drinking lots of water, and remember to gently exfoliate your lips with Vaseline and a soft toothbrush to get rid of any dry skin. Last of all, protect your lips from the sun’s harmful UV rays by applying an SPF lip balm.

If you’ve tried these tips and you still feel like your lips need a little help to look fuller, you can if you want resort to cosmetic surgery. There are a few different procedures available, from lip injections to lip fillers. But remember, cosmetic surgery on your lips can still be quite risky and very invasive. Only try it if you have exhausted all other options and have thought very carefully about your decision.

Sleek and Special: Unique Décor for a Modern Wedding

The holidays are a special time to get engaged, and with so many weddings coming in the spring and summer, it’s time to start planning and booking those venues. Many brides have tastes outside of the mainstream wedding frills, and it can be difficult to find décor, spaces, flowers, and dresses to match a sleek, modern aesthetic. If mainstream wedding shops aren’t meeting your expectations, it’s time to think creatively.

Seek Décor from Other Sources
The wedding industry is expensive and booming, and prices on décor can be more expensive than buying the same things from a different vendor. For a modern wedding, décor should be simple and chic. Consider bringing in elements of nature like stone, metal, and water, offset with neutral-colored flowers and earth tones. These decorations can be incredibly inexpensive. Fill a glass jar with river rocks, water, and flowers, and you have a striking but affordable centerpiece. Focus your funds on striking visual pieces, such as logo water features with your names, which can also be a treasured piece in your home after the wedding. The background sound of the water will also add a sensory element to the décor.

Seek the Unique
For flowers, traditional options like roses or daisies may diminish the modern feel of your wedding. Choose exotic flowers like orchids, or even leafy green plants like succulents. If you want to go with desert plants but add some color, cacti are beautiful plants and often have bright, beautiful flowers blooming. Small succulents also make great gifts for your guests.

Dress Your Best
Mainstream bridal shops may not carry the type of dresses you’re seeking for your bridesmaids. The good news is that the traditional look of a bridesmaid dress went out a long time ago, and these dresses offer a great opportunity to express your own personal style. Brides now often pick dresses from mainstream department stores. Choose a flattering, simple cut in a complimentary color. If you’re going for a sleek and modern look, it’s probably wise to choose a consistent color for the dresses. Or, if you’d like to help your friends save some money, suggest that everyone wears a simple, black dress in whatever style fits their body well. That way you can accommodate all your friends no matter what their income is. There’s only one rule for your wedding – that it’s uniquely you!

Be a smart Instagramer – Buy Instagram Followers

For those businesses and photographers who appreciate the impact of social media marketing, then the Instagram platform is not new to them. However, it is disappointing to note that despite the significance it portends to the lives and businesses of many people, Instagram remains vastly underutilized. Despite numerous reasons being advanced for this, the most obvious is certainly the lack of adequate Instagram followers. Instagram Followers- Who needs them most?
 photo IG_zpsa60bf9d3.png
Since inception, Instagram has been a platform for sharing photos. Over time, however, it has become more prominent, helpful, and indeed lucrative. It is, therefore, no surprise that a lot of businesses now use it as a traffic generation tool to bring more prominence to their ventures thus increasing their profits. Undoubtedly, no business would pass up the chance to secure free traffic which would translate into better returns. From the foregoing, the need for increased Instagram followers for every business that needs more traffic and exposure cannot be gainsaid. Irrespective of what you are involved in, this platform affords your venture the priceless publicity it needs to be a success. Below, we take a look at the advantages of acquiring more followers on Instagram as follows:

1. Less effort acquiring followers
By buying Instagram followers, you circumvent the arduous process of personally recruiting them. Anyone who has been involved in online business will testify to how difficult it is to get followers. Therefore, buying followers enables you to avoid that time consuming process while enjoying the same benefits as a business that has painstakingly built its fan base over time

2. Ensures top ranking on Instagram News Feed
By buying a large number of followers, you guarantee that your business images will consistently be ranked above other pictures on the Instagram news feed which translates to increased traffic. This is because the ranking is pegged not only on the popularity of your picture, but on the number of followers you have as well. Therefore, the more followers you acquire, the more exposure you bring to your business.

3. Improves the odds of obtaining more followers
On social media platforms, the more popular a profile is, the more likely it is to have a significant following. This is because social media users are attracted to profiles with a significant number of existing followers than newer ones with fewer fans. Buying as many followers as possible may passively help you attract more in the long run.

4. Presents an opportunity to aggressively promote your business
A huge following presents a significant opportunity to market your business like never before. While you may not have had much activity on your site before, a large number of followers will mean more likes and comments on your pictures, more people visiting your site in reaction to your pictures, and more people promoting your business both online and offline. All this made possible by a large following that you share your pictures with.

5. Increases productivity
An increase in followers can correspond to an increase in productivity as it allows you more time to concentrate on other facets of your business. This can translate to faster growth for your business as instead of spending valuable time promoting your photos you could have someone else to do it for a lesser fee. For those who decide to go for this extremely profitable opportunity, then visit to procure an astounding number of Instagram followers that are indistinguishable from those acquired naturally by others. You stand to lose nothing and gain everything.

The Fastest Internet Service Provider

Choosing an internet service provider can be quite overwhelming especially since there are dozens of internet service providers that may be operating in a given area. You need to be able to decide first what type of internet service you need. You need to determine whether you will need a dial-up or a high speed internet connection.

A dial-up internet connection is cheaper but is also slower. If you only need to check your email everyday and visit a couple of websites from time to time, then a dial-up connection may be suitable for you. But if you will be a ‘heavy’ user, meaning you will be watching and downloading videos and movies, you will have to visit multiple websites for research purposes and you need an instant, fast and stable way of communicating with friends and family members among other things, then you will need a high speed internet connection.

Look into the available internet providers in your areas. Read reviews about them so that you will know if they are also able to deliver a reliable service. You can also talk with your neighbors who have availed of their services so that you can have an idea of their experience with their internet service provider. There are also ISPs who offer internet bundles, such as an internet connection bundled with a cable subscription or a landline phone service.

If you feel that you will be able to save if you avail of bundled packages, then you can choose a package than suits your need. It is also important that you choose an internet service provider that offers 24/7 customer service so that you are assured that you will be give the assistance you need at any given time. That way, even if you are not technically proficient, you will still be able to have your connection repaired if there is going to be a problem.
