Tips for Removing Hair Spots Stretch marks And Blemishes At HomeHair Removal

Laser hair removal is now considered to be the most effective method for removing unwanted hair on the body. If you want to remove hair on your legs it is best to start your treatments in the cooler months for two main reasons. Firstly, laser treatments for the legs should be spaced between 6-8 weeks apart to allow for the optimum hair growth cycle and secondly, because you must avoid sun for two weeks either side of your treatment.

Body Acne

Treating body acne especially on the back and bottom requires a targeted solution as the back and bottom harbour more bacteria than the face. This can be problematic if you sweat excessively as your pores open, swell and clog. Using a moisturizing antibacterial body cleanser, weekly peel mask and spot treatment lotions will help minimize acne inflammation.

Sun Spots

The most common methods for dealing with sun spots or darker pigmented patches of skin are:  lightened with skin brightening creams, removing with laser technology or by freezing using liquid nitrogen.

There are brightening creams which contain hydroquinone,mercury, steroids or other harmful bleaching substances to reduce pigmentation. For a natural alternative consider Meladerm advanced skin lightening cream  with its active ingredients which are all derived from natural extracts such as Mulberry, Licorice and Bearberry plants to  reduce the appearance of dark pigmentation,  sunspots or melasma or acne scars.

Over-the-counter freezing kits are available and you GP or dermatologist can perform the treatment. However, the treated area will scab over and although the skin will flake off and fade over several weeks there is a danger of hypopigmentation (white spots) or scaring.

Laser light therapy treatments can effectively treat surface pigmentation without damaging the surrounding skin.  Over a 2 weeks period, treated skin can darken, become dry and flake off or fade.

Red Bumps

The gritty red bumps often found on the tops of your arms and thighs is the skin condition; keratosis pilaris (KP). It occurs because the skin proteins have formed hard plugs at the hair follicles where skin shedding has not occurred.

The area can be exfoliated with a mild scrub and washed with cleansers containing alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA’s) to gently dissolve the dead skin cells that bind the plugs.

Stretch Marks

There is no treatment modality that will guarantee the removal of stretch marks. However, stretch marks can be minimized.

Specific stretch mark and scar reduction creams can help reduce the appearance, size, height, thickness, and color of scars and stretch marks for all skin types and color. Containing the important Vitamin Retin-A  to improve the ‘look’ of stretch marks by boosting collagen, elastin regeneration and cell structure.

Again, laser light therapy provide a better outcome because it remodels collagen and elastin which firms and tightens the skin at the same time decreases inflammation and surface discoloration.

It seems the benefits of using laser light therapy to treat and remove hair, spots, stretch marks and blemishes out-weight other modalites. However, combining laser treatments at home with our recommended creams and lotions can only escalate and improve results.    See our range of laser light therapy home hand held devices at:  http://skinhealthshop.com/category/products/skin-health/light-therapy-home-hand-held-device/
