Winter is the Best Time for Laser Hair Removal

Have you been debating laser hair removal? Well, now is the time! Winter is the best time for laser hair removal. Jolie Vie Aesthetics is booking appointments NOW!

Why is winter the best time to get laser hair removal? There are a few reasons!

Typically, people don’t have quite as much pigment on their skin during the winter season. The lasers used in the hair removal process are designed to target the melanin (pigment) of the hair in the follicle and disrupt growth. Therefore, the lighter your skin is, the easier it is for the laser to identify the hair in the follicle. If your skin is darker than your natural color, due to sun exposure or sunless tanning, the laser will not be as effective. It might even increase your risk of burning!

Sun exposure to most parts of the body is less likely to happen in the winter, so it’s definitely a more practical time to start laser hair removal treatments. Additionally, you must avoid sun exposure to the treated areas for 2-4 weeks prior to and following a laser hair removal session. Avoiding the sun is typically easier to do in winter.

Laser hair removal also takes time.

Laser hair removal targets hair in the first stage of growth in the follicle, so several sessions are necessary to eliminate all the hair in the area being treated. We usually recommend most clients plan for at least 4-6 sessions over the course of 6 months before the entire area is hair free. For this reason alone, you should begin the process long before you expect to wear clothing that will expose the areas of your body where the hair has been removed.

If you’ve been reading our blog and checking out our services, you know that we are a big fan of the Vampire Facial here at Jolie Vie Aesthetics! Well, not only do we offer the facial, we also offer the Vampire Breast Lift!

How does it work?

In this process, we will evaluate shape and where the shape can be enhanced to create a younger, more attractive appearance.

We then isolate growth factors from the patient’s blood and when these growth factors enter the breast (injected by the physician), then muti-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).

Next we will “activate” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.

These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your breast.

Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her breast in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generated).

WHAT?! McDonald’s Fries Can Cure Your Hair Loss!?

 

We were browsing MarieClaire.com today and this article clearly caught our eye! Science—Yes, Science—Finds That McDonald’s Fries Can Cure Your Hair Loss. Of course we’re not sure if this is actually true, but we may be willing to eat a few fries to find out!

It’s 2018, and news is rarely happy anymore. But today, we bring you possibly the best news to ever exist, which is that scientists—real, live scientists with degrees from fancy places—have determined that McDonald’s French fries could cure your every sadness and ailment. Oh, and also hair loss.

According to a study conducted by researchers at Yokohama National University in Japan, McDonald’s fries could be the next big treatment in premature balding. Though we’d love to say that it’s a byproduct of the potatoes themselves, the magic actually comes from the chemical dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone-based agent that’s added to the cooking oil to keep it from frothing.

In the study, released in Biomaterials journal, researchers transplanted silicone chips laced with thousands of hair follicle germs (HFGs, which simulate real hair follicles) into the backs of mice (erg, yeah—nobody said science was friendly) and found that it stimulated follicle rejuvenation in which hair could potentially grow. So no, it didn’t topically regrow hair, but it did show potential in regrowing shut-down hair follicles, which is still major.

So before you ask to dunk your hair into a vat of oil, please be aware that this study, although promising, has only been tested on animals, which, as a reminder, are not humans. Still, the medical community is pretty lit right now, because these findings could mean major things for regenerative hair therapy, like male pattern baldness.

But until then, may we recommend a really excellent hair-thickening product, like this drugstore foam that regrew a woman’s thinning hair in six weeks? Don’t worry; you can still get an order of fries, too.
