Laser hair removal school

Common Questions and Answers about Laser hair removal school


Avatar f tn I do not want to explain to her why mommy is in there. I had my first Laser Hair Removal Treatment on the 27th of June, next appointment is August 2nd and this time they will use numbing cream!!! I'm worried that this will be ongoing for the rest of my life because of the PCOS. My question is has anyone gone through these treatments and if so what was your success do you still do touch ups?
Avatar m tn Drugs like androgen receptor blockers, androgen suppressing agents and 5 alpha reductase inhibitors are also used. Permanent means of hair removal by electrolysis and laser treatment are also useful. I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist and discuss all the pros and cons of these methods so that the best treatment for you can be decided.
Avatar n tn I was very self conscious about it growing up- for I couldn't find anything about girls with nipple hair. I actually had laser hair removal when I was 16, but it has all grown back which is unfortunate because it cost a lot! I still pluck when their long enough, but they do become ingrown and I end up having some scarring as well. My boyfriend never even noticed when we first got together, I couldn't believe it. It goes to show that men miss detail. It was a huge relief for me.
Avatar n tn Can you tell me the results of your one ovary removal surgery? Have you had recurrence of endometrioma? Are you on oral contraceptives?
Avatar n tn Yes, I too expected to have a total Hysterectomy & removal of ovaries & Endometriosis by Laparascopic surgery. Well, that did occur but I knew that after my surgery that something was very wrong. My Sigmoid Colon had been ruptured. I was hugely distended & kept questioning this to no avail. I even suggersted that I had Peritonitis, but was told to think happy thoughts! Finally, day 5 in the hospital I felt my bowel really "Go" whilst on the toilet.
Avatar n tn But I too cannot wait till I can afford laser hair removal.
Avatar n tn I believe it must have happened when they first shaved my face (standard procedure for laser hair removal)- yet the shaving opened all the little acne bumps and must have allowed it to spread. Someone mentioned diabetes and menstral cycle problems. I have very irregular periods and have been diagnosed with " PCOS " (a pre-diabetic stage). I know my facial hair is rooted to this problem, yet I do not know how to fix it.
Avatar n tn Hairs will grow for awhile and then fall out on their own and grow back (that is why your pubic hair and body hair does not grow beyond a certain length). A new hair can become ingrown just like a shaved hair can, although it happens less frequently.
Avatar f tn My husband believes that this was a loose hair that got trapped but I noticed a follicle at the end of the strand, which leads me to believe that the hair actually grew up there. I am thankful that removal was pain free, but am dreading another occurrence.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had the mirena in for about 13 months & had it removed end of august to try to get pregnant. I had thought it was more immediate. I found out it can take 3-6 months for your cycle to return. my husband and I are pretty bummed because we would have removed it earlier (or never had it put in). Anyway, I bled a few days after removal (probably due to the removal) & then nothing until a couple days of brown spotting at the beginning of this month.
Avatar f tn i have been dealing with facial hair issues since i was in middle school. every woman in my family has had this problem. well unlike them it has given me self esteem issues to were i dont like to look at myself in the mirror. i have tried waxing but they always tell me to let it grow longer before they can do anything with it and i cant let it grow there anything i can buy,ive tried nair,veet,and it never gets all the hair..
Avatar f tn The different methods of hair removal are shaving, chemical depilation by using depilatory creams, temporary epilation by plucking, tweezing, waxing and permanent epilation by electrolysis, thermolysis and laser hair removal. But if the hair growth is excessive then hirsutism has to be ruled out. Hirsutism is usually caused by hormonal imbalance and in women PCOS is one of the leading causes of hirsutism and infertility.
Avatar f tn There are various methods like shaving,bleaching,depilatory creams,electrolysis or laser hair removal are available to remove the hair.Out of all these laser hair removal is the most long lasting.Nd YAG laser is very effective in long term reduction of hair.Risks include the chance of burning the skin or discoloring dark skin with the laser, hypopigmentation (white spots), and flare of acne. Pls consult a dermatologist/cosmetologist and discuss this with him/her. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I also have excess growth of hair on my chest and neck (which I am told the only thing that can be done for this is laser removal). I am starting to get skin tags (just 2) on my neck and I have a history of miscarriage. I also have had several ovarian cysts. Should I worry about any of these symptoms even though the T3 and T4 are normal? Or am I just crazy????
Avatar n tn A mild corticosteroid cream like dermacort will also help but should be used under a dermatologist’s guidance. Also you can go in for laser hair removal which causes permanent reduction of hair. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn I get it all time and really have to exfoliate a lot, there are red dots that usually itch and are inflammed. I think laser hair removal is the only option to reduce the hair, but that is expensive and I doubt there are many studies that allow you to get it for free. I still am learning about this and am I trying to find anyone that has a similar condition to mine, but no luck and from all the observing and locker rooms I have been and travels. I have never found anyone with the same thing.
363243 tn?1331037450 Hi coco727272, I was recently diagnosed with PCOS. I am not African American, I am of Sicilian decent. I also have had problems with hursutism. I had something called laser hair removal on my face to remove upper lip hair, chin, neck and "sideburn" hair. It is really very effective and permanently removes hair as the laser kills the hair's root. You'll probably always have some hairs because you can grow new ones at any time in your life but it kills the hairs that are there.
Avatar m tn Amy Schefler, MD, from Retina Consultants of Houston, who is clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology at the University of Texas, said that she has not seen any injuries with the blue laser, but has seen similar injuries from the YAG laser used for hair removal. She agrees with Dr. Arevalo that it's tough to regulate Internet sales. "I'm no expert in government regulation of Internet purchases, but it's obviously challenging," Dr. Schefler said.
Avatar f tn I was doing electrolosis for a while but even that didn't slow it down too much and it was really expensive.(very hard to keep up!) I saw an ad for a laser hair removal place here in Salt Lake and I am going to give that a shot!
Avatar f tn I panicked and bought a laser comb for hair loss. After a few week using it as directed, the hair loss subsided a lot, now losing just a few straws a day. And now it picked up again, around week 10 of using the laser comb, I'm back to losing massive clumps again every day. Just pulling my fingers through the hair makes me lose 5-10 straws. I do see new growth coming in, but not enough to cover what's been lost, I have to mask my peaking scalp with Toppik daily.
Avatar n tn I have had C02 laser several times plus another laser i could not remember. About 7 years ago i got some cut out and other laser done. cutting the ilven out has worked and has not come back but i still have a large amount in the groin area which is really hard to keep under control. I had to change to Boxer short & apply Vaseline to keep it moist when it drys it is so itchy. I hope this might help i feel your pain. it is so annoying.
Avatar f tn Ejm I feel your pain on the housework! Luckily with two middle schoolers they can trash a room in give minutes so even though the normal me is a clean freak and plan everything ten times kind of this moment when someone comes over I just shrug my shoulders and say "It was clean. Kids!" Lol. Not true but it works for now.
948349 tn?1294383837 I also believe that home laser hair removal kits will help you with your acne if your acne is causes by ingrown hairs. I'm going to be purchasing one within a month which is a bit steep in price at 500 dollars, but I think it's well worth it. I have ingrown hairs on my neck, and sometimes I also get acne on my neck. For men and shaving... avoid a close shave and shave in the direction of the hair follicles growth rather than against it.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have the same problem and it's awful! Anybody who says it has to do with your razor or shaving lotion, etc has no idea what you're going through. It's the hair growing back & having to push up through the skin so your best bet is to shave as infrequently as possible. Strangely, I only experience this on my legs but it is so incredibly bad. I can't even get by with scratching just using my finger nails.
233488 tn?1310696703 In addition to cataracts and AMD, sun exposure can lead to lesions and tumors that may be cosmetically unappealing and frequently require surgical removal. Damage to the eyes from UV light is not confined to the outdoors; it is also a concern with indoor tanning beds. “Ultraviolet radiation levels to the eye are much greater in a tanning booths than outside in the sun,” says Michael Kutryb, MD, an ophthalmologist in Titusville, FL, and a clinical correspondent for the Academy.
948349 tn?1294383837 This is what I am looking into next... I also believe that home laser hair removal kits will help you with your acne if your acne is causes by ingrown hairs. I'm going to be purchasing one within a month which is a bit steep in price at 500 dollars, but I think it's well worth it. I have ingrown hairs on my neck, and sometimes I also get acne on my neck.

Avatar f tn I would advise you not to get electrolysis or to use harsh chemicals if you have hyperpigmentation. The only non irritating form of hair removal is shaving, which I very happily did for many years before the mishap. Take care and let me know how you get on.
