What Care you Need to Take after IPL Laser treatment for Hair Removal

IPL laser treatment for hair removal may be a simple process, but it requires proper skin care of the area that was treated. The time needed for recovery is very less and people usually return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. But aftercare is very crucial in order to negate any chances of complication and to reduce any discomfort that you may otherwise experience.

1. Redness and bumps immediately after the IPL treatment for hair removal are normal and are likely last up to 2 hours or longer. Normally, treated area feels like sunburn for a few hours and most physicians recommend aloe vera gel or some other after-sunburn treatment such as Desitin to provide relief.

2. There is no harm in using makeup after the IPL hair removal treatment, except in the case of epidermal blistering. However, new makeup is recommended to diminish the possibility of infection. Don’t forget to put loads of moisturizer before you apply makeup. In fact, you should moisturize the treated area frequently with any moisturizer without alphahydroxy acids.

3. Doctors advice avoiding sun exposure for at least one month to reduce the chance of dark or light spots. Throughout the treatment, use sunscreen SPF 30 or higher even if you stay indoors.

4. Abstain from picking or scratching the treated skin and under no circumstance should you resort to any other hair removal method or product on the treated area while undergoing your IPL treatment for hair removal. These will reduce the effectiveness of the treatment and prevent you from achieving best results.
You will notice stubble, representing dead hair about to be shed from the hair follicle, appear 5-30 days after the treatment. This is quite normal and usually falls out quickly.

Medispa at Shrewsbury brings to you latest and the most advanced medical technologies to help you put your best foot forward. They combine art and medicine to safely, comfortably, and reliably rejuvenate your skin by newest and most sophisticated laser and intense pulsed light systems (IPL laser treatment such as the LightSheer Diode Laser and Palomar IPL).

How Laser Works for Hair and Tattoo Removal

If you were to list the most popular non-surgical procedures in the world, laser hair removal will top the list hands down. Though the overall hair reduction may vary from person to person, it is mostly permanent. Lasers are common enough and you already have them in your DVD player, your PC and in the TV's remote control. But the laser used in the laser clinic is far more potent than laser found in these gadgets. These lasers discharge pulses of light that get absorbed by the melanin present in the hair and destroy the hair root. If surrounding skin is lighter then energy gets concentrated on the hair shaft and does not affect skin much.

It you think that someone with fair skin and dark hair is more likely to benefit from the laser hair removal, then you’re right. Except that laser is effective only when hair follicles are in their active growth phase. Since hair in a particular area has different growth stages, you will need at least 8-10 sittings for a complete treatment. There are more than one type of lasers for hair removal so even if one does not work for you, other will.

The same principle works in laser tattoo removal. Here the pulses of laser are absorbed by the coloured ink which is then broken down and absorbed by the body where immune system takes care of it. If you have a coloured tattoo with more than more than one colour then it will take more pulses of varied frequency or strength according to the colour. It will also take longer as coloured ink absorbs only a part of the light.

Good and reputable clinics like Medispa at Shrewsbury tell you whether you a candidate for this treatment or not. Individuals with red, white, gray or light blonde hair don’t get very effective results. However, skin colour doesn't make a difference. As there are several different lasers available for hair removal, as long as your hair is darker than the skin you can benefit from laser hair removal. 

For laser tattoo removal and laser hair removal, your best bet is Medispa at Shrewsbury, a specialist laser clinic with experienced and well trained laser technicians. To know more about various beauty procedures available at Medispa at Shrewsbury, logon to

If you thought that Botox treatment is just a wrinkle erasing and anti aging procedure then it’s time to update your knowledge about this miracle treatment. Of course, NJ Botox is an effective anti aging tool but it is equally effective and popular for a number of other conditions also. Excessive sweating or hyperhydrosis is one such condition.

You know, nobody likes sweating. It makes you look sloppy and smelly. And if you suffer from hyperhydrosis, which makes you sweat extraordinarily, you are in for a difficult life. Botox treatment for hyperhydrosis includes injecting tiny amounts of drug underneath the skin of your palms, soles or underarms and your perspiration will reduce by some 75-80%. It is ideal for those who can’t put on make-up due to excessive sweating of face. The effects of treatment last up to an year and only side effect is happier handshakes, cleaner odourless clothes and a more confident you.

As Botox Treatments help in tightening pores, it renders your facial skin grease free and leaves a glow on the face. Tightened pores also help in reducing oil on the skin and can be effectively used for acne and its scars. You can achieve almost smooth skin if you combine botox treatment with peels and fillers.

Botox treatments work wonders on droopy and sad looking corners of the mouth which are caused by your tugging depressor angular muscle. You can look every bit as happy as you feel with a combination of Botox treatment and some filler for support.

Nothing gives away age faster than droopy eyebrows. You can now have arched eyebrows with the help of Botox treatment. When you combine it with fillers, the effect will be really good. Most Botox Treatments take just about 15-20 minutes and as it has no down time, you can go party hopping or boogie the night away right after the New Jersey Botox.

Look Lascivious with Laser

All the fans of LA Ink know that tattooing is a big business, but then so in erasing tattoos. What is widely known as ‘Tattoo regret’, is so common that half of all Americans with tattoos want to get them removed at one time or the other. Thanks to the laser, it is now possible to rid off unwanted tattoos. New Jersey Laser tattoo removal can effectively remove the tattoo of an ex-spouse’s name, skull on your forearm or symbol of the motor cycling gang you grew out. During Laser tattoo removal in New Jersey short pulses of laser is passed through the upper layer of skin to the dermis to break ink into tiny particles that the body naturally expels.

Just like Laser tattoo removal in New Jersey, laser vein treatment gives you a new lease in life and aids in improving your personality. Reddish, bluish or purplish looking veins that crisscross or run over legs, face or body can be very embarrassing. Who would want to wear short dresses and shorts that could reveal these ugly-looking veins. But with laser vein treatment, the blood in your veins will absorb the energy from the laser and generate heat which will break down the lining of the blood vessels and seal them off. Your body will gradually absorb the vein and they will disappear.

Another treatment for spider or varicose veins is Sclerotherapy. Also known as injection therapy Sclerotherapy for spider veins is a non-surgical procedure that takes about half an hour. Sclerosing solution is injected into the unseemly veins that make them shrink. Gradually these veins disappear leaving your skin smooth and silky.
