When your loved one reaches a certain age, they may need a little extra support with day-to-day activities, and these may or may not include home health services.

This is where non-medical home care may be the right option for you. Professional caregivers can assist with the daily goings-on of life and provide peace of mind for you and your family. Common services include:

Everything You Need To Know Before Your First Laser Hair Removal

You decided to take the plunge and get a laser treatment. Hooray! You’re one step closer to hairlessness or at least the degree of hairlessness that you’re seeking. While your dermatologist or laser treatment provider should be your primary resource, sometimes it helps calm the nerves to listen to someone who’s gone through the experience.

Laser treatments aren’t cheap, so you should arm yourself with all the knowledge you can to make sure your investment pans out smoothly (see what I did there?).

Here is a pretty decent list of things you should know BEFORE you go in for your first laser treatment:

 

1. Mind Your Skin Tone

Lasers work by targeting the melanin in the hair and destroying the corresponding follicle. Making some lasers difficult or ineffective for use on darker skin tones. Recently, however, there are newer models of lasers that work on ranges of skin tones. Your laser treatment provider will choose the best laser for you.

 

2. Hair Beware, But Where?!

A BIG question first-time laserees have is where exactly on their body they can receive the treatment. Well, guess what? Most of your body is fair game—arms, legs, chest, back, pubic hair, and even the anus (sorry if that’s TMI, but it’s good to know). The only places where lasers will not be used are for eyebrows or anywhere near your eyes.

 

3. Brace Your Bank Account

More and more people are seeing groupons pop up that are valid for laser treatments. If you’re lucky enough to scoop one of those up, it’ll set you back anywhere from $99-$300 for several sessions on a medium-to-large area. Buying in bulk seems to be the best way to save when it comes to this type of treatment. And many medical spas offer bundle deals.

 

4. Don’t Show Up As Chewbacca

You will have to shave the area being lasers PRIOR to treatment. It’s best if this is done a day or two beforehand to prevent skin irritation from the laser. Some places will charge you if you show up unshaved. Just do it yourself.

 

5. On A Scale Of 1-10—How’s The Pain

The initial sessions are usually manageable. The sensation is like the snapping of a rubberband on the skin following by a brief cool. As long as you’re consistent with your treatments, you should be fine. However, if you wait too long between treatments the pain quickly increases. Stick to your schedule if you can help it—trust me. They also provide you with safety goggles because staring straight at the laser can damage your eyes.

 

6. Can I Fit This In During Lunch

Laser hair removal is astonishingly quick, depending—of course—on your technician’s style and how many breaks you need to take. Brazilians can take around 10-15 minutes, but most treatments should easily be able to be constrained within a lunch hour (as long as there’s no wait time at the med spa).

 

7. What Results Should You Expect

Results will vary for several reasons. Your skin type, the area being treated, how properly hydrated and nourished you are, etc. The list goes on. The truth is, there’s no way to know definitively how anyone will react to laser treatment. Most people do very well and see favorable results with only a few treatments, some need a few more to get where they want to be.

 

8. A Note About Tanning

Do NOT tan before your laser treatment, you will be turned away. As lasers cannot be used on sun-tanned or sun-burnt skin.

 

That’s it. Now all that’s left to do is show up. Good luck!

5 Tips For Youthful Glowing Skin

The skin is largest organ in the human body and a protective barrier against germs and toxins. Sweat glands and blood vessels regulate temperature, Immune cells ward off infection, and some cells synthesize vitamin D. But, like the rest of our bodies, skin ages.

Loss of elasticity occurs when collagen and elastin production slow, causing skin to sag and wrinkles to form, especially if there has been excessive sun exposure (no skin type gets a free pass on sun damage).

But never fear, there are ways to slow this aging process and in some cases even reverse it Here are a few tips to help keep skin supple and healthy:

 

  • Use sunscreen every day. It’s never too late to start protecting your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays.
  • Use a night cream. This helps to replenish the skin while you sleep.
  • Stop smoking. There are a number of reasons for this but smoking significantly dehydrates and damages the skin. 
  • Increase your fluid intake. Maintaining proper hydration is essential to glowing and healthy looking skin.
  • Exercise. It improves circulation which translates into “happier” cells better capable of producing collagen and elastin.

 

But if you are still not happy with the way you look, laser skin resurfacing may be the solution for you.  Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that helps reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and age spots.  It will also improve the overall tone and texture of your skin.

Gone are the days of “total face lifts” which can irreversibly change the “look” of a person. Laser resurfacing restores skin to a youthful glow without surgery or extensive down-time. Laser Skin Resurfacing is FDA-approved and safe for most skin types.

If you want to tighten your jaw line and remove fine lines and wrinkles, laser resurfacing may be your answer.

The Truth About Laser Treatments For Acne

If you’ve ever had acne, then you’re very familiar with discomfort. The stares from strangers, the eyes dropping from yours to your breakout. It’s not fun. And it leaves many individuals with low self-esteem and shame.

But the fact is that 60-million people in the U.S. have acne—ranging from mild to severe cystic cases. Thankfully, nowadays, there are a variety of treatment options to choose from including laser treatment for acne.

It seems too good to be true, right? Just shine some fancy light on your skin and all your acne troubles disappear. Well, that’s not quite how it works. Here’s the truth about laser treatments for acne.

 

1. Keep Expectations In Check

Acne laser treatment is effective, but will not “cure” your acne. Most patients who undergo this type of therapy see a significant clearing of their acne but it’s rare for this treatment to completely eradicate it. Talk to a dermatologist about combining treatment options to give you the best results.

 

2. Results May Vary

Because each of us is unique and different, the way each of our bodies responds to certain chemicals or substances is different. There’s no way to predict who will and won’t respond favorably to laser treatment.

 

3. A Series Of Treatments Is Usually Required

Some issues can be addressed effectively with a single laser treatment—but acne isn’t one of them. Most studies have shown that it usually takes multiple treatments for acne to respond to the therapy.

 

4. Be Patient

Expanding upon truth #3, regardless of how many treatments you undergo, don’t expect to wake up the next day with a perfectly smooth face. It takes time for your skin to respond to the treatment—usually a couple weeks or so.

 

5. Side Effects ARE Possible

Maybe you’re drawn towards laser treatments because you’ve heard horror stories about the side effects of some of the prescription medications. If that’s the case, I’m sorry to say that lasers carry their own side effects, although mostly minimal and far less serious than some other acne treatments. Swelling, redness, sensitivity to the sun, or burning sensations are the most common. Other uncommon side effects include blisters, pigmentation, and lingering pain. It’s important to follow your dermatologist’s instructions very carefully to avoid this.
