The Lumenis light sheer desire is a Laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure the laser pulses for a fraction of a second allowing of the hair to absorb the light and heat up as it heats up the hair shaft and the bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re- grow and with the large spot size the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.

Scrubbing the face everyday will keep the skin clean and smooth.

The skin’s outmost layer is known as the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum (SC) protects us from dehydration and external dangers. There are three lipids in the SC, namely ceramides, free fatty acids, and cholesterol. Free fattyacids and ceramides fuse together in the stratum corneum to form a continuous layer of lipids. This lipid bilayer plays a major role in maintaining the barrier properties of the skin. The SC also has collection of water-soluble compounds that are known as Natural moisturizing factor (NMF). NMF components absorb water from the atmosphere and combine it with their own water content allowing the skin to stay hydrated despite exposure to sun,pollution & harsh elements. The lipid layer surrounding the skin cells prevent loss of NMF & help “lock” moisture in the skin.

Exfoliating the skin more than once in a week can damage the protective barrier layer of the skin making it sensitive and dry. This leads to flaking, increased susceptibility to rash and redness as well as premature aging in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, pigment spots.

Scrubbing and exfoliation can lead to :

• patchy areas of dryness             

• loss of suppleness

• dull dry texture      

• redness and itchiness

• increased sensitivity

• inflammatory acne and irritation

• fine lines and wrinkles

The development of darker, thicker facial hair in women, especially on the chin and upper lip, is typically the result of hormonal changes and is benign.

 

OK. Ladies, has this ever happened to you? You look in the mirror and spot a dark, thick hair on your chin or upper lip. Aghast, you immediately pluck it. It grows back. You pluck it again. It grows back again, only this time you swear it’s darker and thicker. What’s going on?

You’re not alone. The bad news is that it’s all too common among most women. The good news is that it’s almost always benign.

First, it’s a myth that plucking hairs causes them to grow in darker or thicker. These hairs are coarser and thicker because they are secondary sexual characteristic hairs; that is, they are the result of hormonal changes. They’re not unlike male facial hair, which is also coarse. These hairs appear thicker and darker than fine vellus hairs (peach fuzz) because they’re a different type of hair, not because of tweezing. Most women develop these hairs on the chin, jaw line, and upper lip. Though these hairs can appear at any age, they’re more prominent after menopause. They can also be the result of hormonal changes due to issues ranging from birth control pills and pregnancy to irregular periods and hormonal imbalances.

Tweezing is not likely to influence or cause diameter changes to hair texture. Hormonal variables and genetic predisposition are much more likely to be at play.

What can you do to get rid of them? For a fast and inexpensive option, tweezing is fine, as are depilatory creams. But the hairs will grow back. For permanent hair removal, try either electrolysis or laser treatment (at a doctor’s office). There are also some prescription medications that stop hair from growing. If that’s something you’re interested in, then speak with your dermatologist.

 

In the meantime, be kind to yourself. Remember, that it’s hormones at work, not you. And that it’s a fixable problem.

TONERS - YES or NO

Post in Blog
by Dr. Neetika Paul

PEOPLE OFTEN BELIEVE THAT A GOOD SKIN CARE REGIME CONSISTS OF CLEANSING, TONING AND MOISTURIZING. IT SHOULD ACTUALLY BE CLEANSING, MOISTURIZING AND SUN PROTECTION.

 

The strong toners are astringents with alcohol in them. Mild ones which are said to be alcohol free may still have upto 10% alcohol in them. Cleansing itself alters the skin pH , toning will make it more alkaline leading to dry & sensitive skin. Hence, a toner should be used to degrease very oily skin. It should not be used in normal to dry skin.
