In the eventuality that you have decided to eliminate unwanted hair from a certain area of your body once and for all, then undergoing electrolysis in New York spas and clinics is a surefire way to reach your goal. The procedure implies inserting a thin needle into the hair follicle and sending a mild electric impulse down the shaft, thus destroying the root of the hair permanently.
While it is true that in general, the results will vary according to the size of the treatment area as well as skin type, it is necessary to mention that electrolysis in Manhattan comes with few minor side effects, mostly swelling and slight redness at the site. In addition, electrolysis in New York City is a hair removal technique available for most types of skin, including dark colored skin. In the following guide we will discuss some tricks you can employ in order to obtain better results, while making sure the whole process is painless and easy.
- Take a bath in lukewarm water
Even though the advice of taking a shower or a bath prior to the appointment appears to stem from common sense, there is another reason why they are highly recommended before the electrolysis. To put it simply, a clean, unclogged skin free of dead cells will make it easier for the specialist to identify and insert the needles into the hair follicles. However, don’t take the bath just before you head to the doctor’s office, but rather a few hours in advance, since the electrologist cannot work efficiently on soft hair follicles.

Laser hair removal is an innovative medical procedure widely used these days by people who want to eliminate unwanted hair follicles from the arms, legs, armpit, upper lip, chin or the bikini line. While it is true that the skilled physician of any laser hair removal Long Island center can help you get rid of unwanted hair from any area of your body, it is important to note that a professional will not utilize this technique around the eyes due to the high risk of severe injury.
Laser hair removal Garden City: Side effects
Adverse reactions resulted from the procedure, such as irritations and pigment changes, are extremely rare if the procedure is carried out by a professional. In the event that the patient experiences mild irritation following hair removal via laser, then in the vast majority of cases the side effects will disappear within several hours. However, it is necessary to mention that in order to obtain satisfactory results without any pain and discomfort, patients should also take the physician’s recommendations seriously, especially the ones related to sunlight exposure.
Tanned skin and the effectiveness of the treatment
Because this technique will make you skin more susceptible to side effects, sunbathing prior to or immediately after the laser hair removal session increases the chances of experiencing blistering, sunburns and skin discolorations in the region. This is why a licensed physician will not perform the procedure on a patient with tanned skin, but will instead postpone it until the tan has faded. Take note that laser hair removal is not recommended irrespective of the method that the patient used to get a tan, be it natural or artificial (beds or creams). Read the rest of this entry »
Even though the main reason why people seek ingrown hair removal White Plains treatment is the painful sensation, the truth is that ignoring this condition will soon lead to infections, soars and eventually scarring. Furthermore, as most of the patients with this issue point out, not acting quickly will result in getting another ingrown follicle in the same area in just a few days. Luckily, there are some simple methods to eliminate this problem and avoid an unpleasant recurring episode. Let’s elaborate.
In spite of the fact that tweezing is a very commonly practiced and effective method when you are trying to get rid of an ingrown hair, it is important to note that this procedure doesn’t prevent the recurrence. The main setback of the method comes from the fact that you may not always be able to remove the follicle from the root, thus breaking it and leaving the sharp edge of the hair underneath the skin and further aggravating the problem. Therefore, unless you utilize needle-nose tweezers, you should consider a laser ingrown hair removal Westchester treatment.
While popular belief might deem shaving as an effective solution to get rid of ingrown hairs, keep in mind that this practice only removes the superior part of the hair, meaning the one that is above the epidermis. However, with some effort you could remove the ingrown follicle eventually if you steam the area first and exfoliate it with a loofah several times. On the other hand, this process might sensitize and irritate your skin, thus making the area very painful. Read the rest of this entry »
Laser hair removal is superior to other hair removal techniques in many ways. Economic savings is just one of those.
One needs to consider the lifetime cost of conventional hair removal techniques, such as waxing, and compare to laser hair removal costs in order to appreciate the lifetime savings from laser hair removal.
It’s easiest to explain with an example. Let’s compare full legs laser hair removal and waxing costs.
On average a woman spends approximately $70 for full legs waxing. This will be an ongoing cost for a lifetime. If you start waxing at the age of 16 and get your legs waxed each month till the age of 40, the net present value of your lifetime waxing cost is around $7,000. In other words, all those $70 wax treatments that you have to purchase for the next couple of decades sort of equal to $7,000 in today’s dollars*. Oh, by the way, you are likely to get waxed way past 40!
Let’s compare this with laser hair removal. Full legs laser hair removal cost can be around $400 per session. To get optimal results, you need to purchase 6 sessions every 6-8 weeks a part. Assuming a discount offer, package of 6 may cost around $2,000 and it quickly becomes abundantly clear that laser hair removal creates enormous savings when compared with waxing, which has a $7,000 lifetime price tag as assumed previously.
Not to mention the magnitude of savings when the whole body is taken into account…
This quick example highlights the economic rationale for laser hair removal. Think of laser hair removal as a long term investment that would last for a lifetime.

It is abundantly clear why laser hair removal has become very quickly a ‘must have’ for women around the world. After all, women have been fighting ‘the hair’ for ages, and any permanent solution is embraced with great enthusiasm and tears of joy.
But what’s in it for moi - the male?
Well, its probably fair to say that male kind of this day and age – unlike the past – have started the war on ‘hair’ like women had…especially in certain body areas. Curious?
…some men need to get rid of them due to athletic competition,
…some men due to heat effects (imagine that),
…some men just do not like hair hanging out of their shirt – front or the back
…clearly, some men just do not like hair that requires shaving certain areas (your guess)
…there are men who are tired of shaving their head due to balding effects and they want to remove the remaining hair permanently
…and then there are those that battle the ingrown hair around the neck, beard and beard lines
So maybe the bottom line: men have as many reasons, if not more, as women to love laser hair removal… and so they do!

We have specialists that can customize male hair removal packages targeting reduction or removal for any body areas.

Laser hair removal during the summer can be tricky if you are planning to put on that bronze tan you’ve been dreaming about all winter. During the laser treatment process skin is likely to absorb heat and this incremental heat may exacerbate any sun damage that you may experience during the tanning process.
As your premiere medical aesthetics center and laser hair removal specialist in Manhattan, we will be the first to tell you that it is necessary to stay away from tanning for up to a couple of weeks before and after the laser treatment, especially for the body areas that are most exposed to the sun.
Nevertheless, you don’t have to skip your laser procedures, thanks to the special laser devices LaserTouch SoHo features for dark and tanned skin types. LaserTouch SoHo’s GentleYAG and Cutera XEO technologies provides just the protection you need when undergoing laser treatment during the summer or if you have dark skin.
Talk to one of our specialists in Soho, New York City, to find out more about your options if you are considering heavy sun exposure and laser hair removal during the summer.
One of the most frequently asked questions when looking for a laser hair removal service provider is whether the clinic uses the the right device for your skin type.
The most important factor you should consider is the melanin content of your skin – in other words how dark your skin is.
Skin color is expressed in Skin Type categories I to V (i.e. 1 to 5). Skin Type I being the fairest skin, and Skin Type V, the darkest. If you have white skin that does not tan well, you are likely to be Type I or II. Olive skin color is likely Type III and so on.
So what is so critical about selection of the appropriate devices? Laser devices apply energy to the melanin content in the skin and the hair. Darker hair and darker hair have rich melanin content. A laser device designed for lighter skin type aims to attack the higher melanin content in the dark hair, and assumes that the light melanin skin will not absorb the energy. However if same device is used in the darker skin, both the hair and the skin absorb the high energy, creating the potential for skin burn or damage.
That is exactly the reason for carrying two different laser devices at LaserTouch SoHo. Our GentleLase device, manufactured by Candela, is very effective on lighter skin types. Our GentleYAG, again manufactured by Candela, provides safety and effectiveness on darker skin types. You can find more information on these devices at LaserTouch SoHo Laser Devices.
