Fans of the HBO dramedy series Entourage may remember Jeremy Piven’s character Ari Gold commenting about Shauna’s (Debi Mazar) figure: “Nice of you to drop the baby weight.

In general, over 50% of the “lasers” used in hair removal treatments is IPL or intense pulsed light technology, which is not a laser. Because it is less efficient, some patients not only endure pain when they undergo treatment, they require several sessions to achieve the desired results, and some hair types don’t even respond well to the treatment.
With Light Sheer Duet, Cosmed uses the Diode Laser System, which emits near-infrared laser light that is turned on for only a fraction of a second. The light is absorbed only by the pigment found on the hair follicle, eliminating hair growth over time. It is equipped with a contact-cooling hand piece called the ChillTip, which provides a cooling effect to the skin to protect it during the laser energy delivery.
Excess skin down south can be uncomfortable, especially in intimate situations. As a woman ages, the labia can get stretched and enlarged, which can happen if she hasgiven birth a number of times and all of them by normal delivery.

For many men, permanent baldness is like their own sneaky nemesis that they’re never even aware of until it’s too late. The smartest of these men opt not to take their chances and get hair transplant treatment instead. Here are some of the things that you need to know about caring for your scalp right after the procedure:
While the hair transplant procedure should only last for a few hours, you should make sure that it doesn’t get messed up during the rest of the day, even while you sleep. Hence, for the first night at least, try not to sleep with a pillow rubbing against your treated hair lest the grafts fall off. In this case, call your plastic surgeon immediately.
Try not to touch your head too much (or let anything else touch it, for that matter), since this might disturb your follicles and make the transplant inefficient. This also means a big no-no to wearing caps or hats over it during the first few days, as this might cause your head to heat up and likewise damage your transplant.
Sun and Sweat
Staying out in the sun could also impede the surgery’s healing process, and it could even hinder the efficient growth of your hair grafts. Sweating can even cause an infection when it permeates the transplant area, so be sure to wash your head after profuse sweating.
