laser hair removal?
Do you provide the service of laser hair removal?
Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, I do not have any laser hair removal services or products. However, here is a great sugar hair removal recipe.
Sugar waxing hair removal recipe
Here is what you'll need:
2 cups of regular granulated sugar
1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
A jar or plastic container
Cotton strips. A thin t-shirt cut up in strips works well.
1. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat on low temperature, until it bubbles.
2. Insert the thermometer until the mix reaches 250F then take it off and pour into a container. Let the mix cool down.
3. Make sure the mix has cooled enough so it doesn't burn you.
4. Using the dull knife, spread the mix in the direction of hair growth.
5. Place the cotton strip, press with your fingers a bit and then pull in the direction opposite the hair growth.
To wash off, use warm water and soap, that will do it.
Here are some tips to make the waxing work better......
Make sure to shower before hand and scrub well to remove dead skin cells. This makes the wax work better.
Make sure the hairs are on the long side like at least 1/4 inch or so long.
Hope this helps,

HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS LASER FOR SKIN TIGHTENING?
This looks interesting. I know heat/laser treatments are supposed to help tighten up the collagen network deep within the skin. From what I've read about this on the internet, it looks like something you have to have done in a doctors office or a ReFirme Center. I try to find things I can do at home on a a budget.
I like things like face exercises. Watch this video of Carolyn, a skin care expert, who is over 63 years old. Look how tight her skin is.
She does 15 minutes of face exercising - 3 times a week. Here she is on the Today Show in Australia. Carolyn on the Today Show - Facial Exercise.
But back to your original question....yes, if anyone out has tried the ReFirm Laser....please let us know, drop us a line and tell us what you think about it. Better yet, send before and after pictures.
change in skin pigmentation due to microdermabrasion/pixel laser treatment
I am an Indian male aged 26 yrs with wheatish complexion. I underwent co2 pixel laser treatments- 3 sessions and 10 sessions of microdermabrasion for a year. I have stopped the procedures since the past 8 months but have highly conspicuous skin color difference.
The treatments were done on my cheeks and nose areas. These areas have become light and pinkish in color compared to the skin on my forehead, beard area, chin and neck - the areas untouched.
I have become the butt of jokes for people at work and outside. Please help me in restoring my self-esteem by suggesting a way to reverse this condition and restore my normal pigmentation of the skin all over the face.
I'm sorry to hear about your negative experience with laser resurfacing. I'm a little surprised that the doctor did this procedure on you since you are of Indian decent. Generally, the best candidates for laser resurfacing are very light skin people.
One the main side effects of using laser on darker skinned people s the risk of hyperpigmentation. This is why many doctors will first treat the skin with hydroquinolones (skin bleaching agents) a few weeks before, and after treatment to lessen the chance of hyperpigmentation.
Go back to the doctor and ask for a prescription hydroquinolone - perhaps you can lighten the other areas of the face so that the treated areas are not so visible.
In the meantime, to help your self esteem and stop being the "butt of jokes" consider using a good concealer to even out your skin tone.
Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer Deep
is just that Amazing! It's water proof, highly pigmented so it provides excellent coverage to hide your hyperpigmentation areas and the best part only a tiny dot is needed for the whole face. I use the Tan colored one for my legs when I'm going to wear shorts or a dress and haven't had time to get a tan on my legs.
Nobody will ever know you're wearing so you won't have to worry about that. At least this will give some peice of mind while you go back to the doctor who performed these procedures and work with him to fix the two tone skin problem.
Good luck to you. And keep me posted on what happens.
