Can I Get Laser Hair Removal Over My Tattoo?

Laser hair removal has quickly gained popularity among women looking for a better alternative to waxing, tweezing, or waxing to get rid of unwanted body hair. But one concern about the treatment is whether it can be safely used over areas with a tattoo, considering that lasers can also be used to erase tattoos. Indeed, proceeding with laser hair removal over areas with tattoos seems like a naturally bad combination, and it actually is. Laser hair removal cannot be applied to tattooed skin, and here’s why. How Laser Hair Removal Works The reason why laser hair removal is unlikely to work for people with light hair is because the laser targets pigments in the hair rather than the actual hair itself. And on tattooed areas of the skin, the laser will automatically attack the pigment in the ink. In fact, since the tattoo ink is darker than the skin, the treatment can cause severe burns and possibly blistering. So, your tattoo will be ruined, and you can end up dealing with painful burns. Pigment targeting is also the reason why people with tan or dark skin can only receive the treatment from equipment that employ a special type of laser system that can distinguish between skin pigment and hair pigment.…

4 Ways To Promote Proper Healing After Rhinoplasty

Some people believe that rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is the easiest plastic surgery procedure out there. But making a nose smaller is a very complex process that can have disastrous results in the wrong hands or with improper healing. In fact, some plastic surgeons spend more than 50 percent of their time correcting unfavourable surgical results or nasal problems due to trauma. This doesn’t mean that recovering patients need to isolate themselves entirely out of fear of damaging their new nose, but they should be cautious. Knocking or bumping the surgical area during recovery can cause all sorts of problems, but so long as patients avoid any serious impact or pressure to their face, they won’t have to deal with any serious damage. Having said that, there are a number of measures you can take to promote proper and faster healing, including: Following your Doctor’s Instructions to the Letter The first thing that you should do is listen to your specialist or doctor and strictly follow all the instructions given. Those guidelines are there for a reason, and that is to aid in your recovery.

After otoplasty, many patients are eager to experience the outcome of the procedure and resume their normal activities, but it is important to keep in mind that there’s a short recovery period before the bandages can be removed to reveal the beautiful ears.

How Soon Can You Sit After A Buttock Augmentation?

Recovery from any type of surgical procedure requires plenty of rest and relaxation, which typically involves lying on your back in a sea of cushions or reclining in a comfy chair with your feet propped up. But with buttock augmentation surgery, applying pressure on your buttock for a prolonged amount of time is not recommended for a comfortable and successful recovery. Many surgeons recommend that you don’t sit on the Brazilian Butt lift injected area for 2 weeks following surgery to avoid exerting undue pressure on the delicate fat cells, which could cause them to degenerate and shrink. But sitting in some cases is unavoidable, and fortunately, there are ways for you to sit without exerting direct pressure on your augmented buttock. How to Sit after a Brazilian Butt Lift While at home, it is safe to sit carefully after the procedure, though you must not sit on your thighs and not lean back onto the areas where the fat was placed. Prolonged sitting increases the risk of your buttock implants shifting, preventing the fat injections from ‘sticking’ in the right manner. So, it is best to avoid sitting altogether for at least the first week following surgery, except when you need to use the bathroom, in which case you…
