Things to know before signing up for laser treatments

Before signing up for laser hair reduction

We all know about the pain of getting waxing done every month. Smooth, soft, and hairless skin is something that everybody likes. But going to the salon every month to endure pain only to enjoy a few days’ worth of hairless skin (let us be honest hair starts to grow back on the third day after waxing) can be a pain. That is why human beings found a way to get rid of hair once and for all Laser hair reduction.

In laser hair reduction, the laser targets the pigment in the hair bulb which heats up and destroys the follicle from which the hair grows, therefore, arresting the growth of the hair follicle. But the thing is that this is not a one-time process since every hair follicle is at a different stage of the growth cycle. You might need about 6-8 sessions to get the results you want. So do not expect instant results. It is also important to use sunscreen after your sessions.

Before getting a laser facial

Laser facials use a patented device that exfoliates, cleanses, and hydrates the skin. In addition, laser facials also treat problems like acne, acne scars, pigmentation, enlarged pores, melasma, fine lines, and wrinkles. It also uses chemical peels to lighten and brighten the skin. Some key benefits of laser facials are that it works on all skin types, outcomes are always consistent and immediate, and finally, no downtime is needed.

But you do need to take some due care before and after the facials like ceasing the use of retinoids, avoiding exposure to sunlight, and stopping acne medications at least two weeks before the treatment. It is essential to use sunscreen after the facial to protect the skin from harmful sun rays.

 Before chemical peel treatment

Chemical peels remove the topmost layer of the skin that contains dead skin cells to reveal the healthy layer of skin underneath. There are three types of peel light, medium, and deep. They bring out healthy skin underneath the dead skin.

Before getting a chemical peel treatment, stop using topical retinol (tretinoin or retin-A) at least two weeks before the treatment. It is vital to inform your specialist about any medications you are taking. Some of the common temporary side effects include redness, irritation, dryness, stinging, burning, and slight swelling. It is necessary to apply sunscreen religiously after the treatment. It protects the skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

Debunking Skincare Myths

There are so many myths about skincare that people believe in and follow. Nobody stops to see if those are even true. To have clear radiant skin is everyone’s goal but to get there you will need to figure out what information is real and what is not.

A lot of the skincare products that people usually use are either ineffective and some skincare myths can even have bad repercussions. Some of the common skincare myths are as follows:

Myth: not washing your face causes acne

A lot of people are not aware that hygiene is not the cause of acne. Acne happens due to the oils produced by the skin, bacteria, clogged pores, and inflammation. Hormones and stress are the bigger triggers of acne.

Myth: only teenagers get acne

Acne does not just happen to teenagers. It occurs at all ages. Granted, it makes its first appearance during the teen years, but that happens because the body undergoes several changes and these changes in the hormones trigger the production of oils that causes acne.

Myth: eye creams don’t do anything

In fact, an eye cream can have many benefits if it contains the right ingredients required for your skin type. It also depends on your condition, for example, if you are dealing with under eye dark circles and puffiness, then eye creams that contain caffeine as the active ingredient will help reduce the puffiness and dark circles. Other ingredients- like vitamin C and hyaluronic acid will also help combat dark circles and puffiness.

Myth: you don’t need retinol until the age of 50

Retinol is gaining popularity because it works on the production of collagen. It also regulates the production of new skin once the dead skin falls off. It actively treats acne, unclogs pores, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and works on evening the skin.

Myth: there is no need for sunscreen in winter

People often relate sunscreen with summer and often forget that the sun is all year round. A lack of heat does not necessarily protect you from the harmful rays of the sun. Despite being cloudy or foggy the UV rays of the sun can even penetrate the clouds and damage your skin. That is why it is very important to apply sunscreen every day! The UV rays cause fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation; it rapidly increases the process of aging, and sunscreen protects the skin from it.

Myth: The harder you exfoliate the skin the better

Exfoliating too many times can actually do more harm than good for your skin. Exfoliating once a week is more than sufficient. Giving your skin time to regenerate is also important, that is how one gets a natural glow.

Myth: Laser facials can adversely affect the skin

No, lasers do not harm your skin. They only penetrate 1-4 mm of the skin. They only treat the surface layers of the skin. In fact, the gentle heat from the laser applied to the epidermis stimulates the production of collagen and elastin replacing the old damaged skin cells. This is how laser gives a rejuvenating effect and reduces wrinkles and fine lines, making the skin look plump, soft, and smooth.

Benefits of Avataar’s Body Polishing

How does diamond skin polishing work?

Body polishing is a procedure to exfoliate and brighten dull skin by removing the dead skin that sits on the outermost layer of the skin. It improves the texture of skin making it smoother, supple, and radiant. Diamond derma abrasion is usually recommended to give deep exfoliation to younger and firmer skin.  It enhances the skin by giving it a smoother finish and better overall texture. Our Diamond Skin Polishing uses refined crystals on the surface of your skin at high velocities to exfoliate dead skin cells and improves blood flow. This promotes cell regeneration which gives you youthful and glowing skin! 

Benefits of skin polishing

  • It removes dead skin cells and makes the skin smooth and lustrous
  • Exfoliates the skin and gives a supple feel
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Unclogs and cleans pores reduces comedones and blackheads
  • It promotes collagen and elastin formation as well as skin regeneration
  • It improves microcirculation in the area, ensuring greater nutrient delivery
  • Hydrates and moisturizes the skin
  • Extremely therapeutic and calming process

The procedure for Diamond Derma Abrasion

Step 1: Cleansing: cleanser is applied to the skin for removing any dirt and clogged pores

Step 2: Diamond derma abrasion: the top layer of skin is gently exfoliated using a hand-held instrument with a diamond tip. In order to reveal smoother skin, the equipment sucks away dead skin cells.

Step 3: Gel massage: improve blood circulation and relaxes muscles

Step 4: Papaya pack: pack is applied to the skin to give a smooth and brightening texture to the skin

Step 5: Sunscreen: Sunscreen is applied to protect the skin from harmful rays

Is there any discomfort with the treatment?

There might be a mild grainy sensation in the beginning as the crystals make contact with your skin but as the treatment continue this feeling will disappear and it will feel more like a massage. You may experience mild redness after the treatment for some time after treatment. Make sure you’re keeping your skin alone in the interim, refrain from wearing makeup for a few days, and refrain from applying any topical treatments to your skin. For 24 to 48 hours, avoid exercising and taking hot showers because these activities can cause your treated skin to go into overdrive. To hasten the healing process, refrain from touching your face and drink plenty of water.

LHR vs. Waxing/Razor

Why choose laser hair reduction over waxing/razor?

1. Save money in the long run

Laser Hair Reduction is a permanent solution for body hair that costs more than getting waxing done at once but if you will calculate the amount you spend every month on waxing that automatically costs 100 times more than LHR.

2. Save your time

One session of Laser Hair Reduction takes around 30 minutes for one part of the body which is almost equal to getting waxing done but LHR gives you permanent relief from body hair whereas waxing is a temporary solution. After laser hair removal treatment, you no longer have to spend time shaving or going to appointments to get the hair waxed. You will have clean smooth skin without the hassle of shaving or waxing.

3. Get rid of ingrown hair

Laser Hair Reduction Treatment damages hair follicles within the skin that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth whereas waxing plucks body hair from inside the skin after a period of time hair follicles produce new hair which might result in ingrown hair and strawberry legs in some cases. LHR is a good option to choose if your skin gets ingrown hairs or strawberry legs after waxing.

4. Get painless hair reduction

Laser Hair Reduction is a completely painless process. The laser beam used in the process gives a sensation like tickling but it does not affect the skin or give any harm or pain

5. It’s a permanent solution

Most people see permanent, lasting results with laser hair reduction. In some cases, people may need a touch-up after a few months or years, but it is the best long-term solution to get rid of body hair.  

How does Laser Hair Reduction Work?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) that is absorbed by the pigment melanin in the hair. The light energy then converts into heat, which damages the sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. Most people have permanent hair loss after an average of three to six sessions. A cooling gel mechanism is applied to the skin before starting the laser treatment to protect the skin from getting harmed. 

Laser Hair Treatment does not have any side effects; the only skin problem people face after the treatment is mild redness which goes away after a few hours. In some situations, you cannot take laser hair reduction treatments which are metal implants inside the body, pregnancy, nursing, and people with a history of keloid scars.

Is Skin Pigmentation Curable?

is skin pigmentation curable

Hyperpigmentation is the reason.

Hyperpigmentation causes your skin to darken. It refers to the patches of skin that become darker than the surrounding areas of skin. It occurs when the skin produces excess melanin (the pigment that gives skin its color).

Burns, bruises, acne, rashes, or sun exposure to the skin can cause it to produce more melanin and lead to dark spots. Hyperpigmentation can appear as brown, black, grey, red, or pink spots or patches, these spots are called age spots, sun spots, or liver spots. Genetic reasons, hormone changes, thyroid disorders, etc can also be the reason for hyperpigmentation.

How to get rid of hyperpigmentation?

There are a few options that work to neutralize excess melanin production and get rid of hyperpigmentation. All types of dark spots on your skin can be lightened back to your natural skin tone.

To even out your skin you can use skin care products. Make sure to choose the right products that contain ingredients like Retinol, Vitamin C, and Asafoetida which boost the growth of skin cells, block melanin production and inhibit the production of dark spots.

If over-the-counter creams are not helping your skin with hyperpigmentation removal, then you should give a try to technological skin care treatments.

Treatment to cure hyperpigmentation or dark spots

Technological skin care such as Quick Fix Radiance and Glycolic peel helps in reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Quick-Fix Radiance Facial is inspired by global celebrity-grade facials. This facial uses a broad spectrum of light that penetrates the deepest layers of the skin. It uses intense light pulses to renew your skin cells. It stimulates collagen and maintains the protein quotient of the skin. Get your laser facial done by Avataar skincare technologies in the comfort of your home.

Are there any patches on your skin lighter than the skin color?

Hypopigmentation is the reason.

Hypopigmentation occurs due to low amounts of melanin in the skin which causes lighter color patches on the skin than the surrounding skin. Causes of hypopigmentation can be genetic or health conditions. The cure for hypopigmentation depends on the cause such as:

  • Vitiligo – Vitiligo spreads on the skin over a period of time
  • Albinism – Albinism is caused due to genetic factors and can’t be cured over a person’s lifetime
  • Pityriasis alba – Pityriasis alba usually resolves after a period of time
  • Pityriasis Versicolor – Pityriasis Versicolor often can be cured with antifungal treatment.
