Lasering Off Your Unwanted Hair

Almost all of us have unwanted hair and most of would probably like to get rid of that hair permanently. So it is not surprising that many of us look into laser hair removal in Atlanta.

There are a few things that you should know about laser hair removal before you undergo the process. A little knowledge can often make things easier and more fun. Here is a little of what you should know about laser hair removal:

  • Laser hair removal is very safe, most people will suffer no side effects or harm if the procedure is done by a cosmetic surgeon and they follow their doctors’ instructions.
  • You will have to stay out of the sun for a few days after laser hair removal because your skin will be more sensitive and susceptible to sunburn.
  • Laser hair removal is more effective for people with light skin and dark hair. It may not work as well for blondes and persons with darker skin.
  • Laser hair removal is not permanent the hair will probably grow back but will be lighter in color.
  • The process is an outpatient procedure but it has to be done in a doctor’s office.
  • You will be able to resume your normal routine after the process as long as you cover the areas of skin that were treated.
  • There can be some pain involved because the doctor will be using a laser to burn hair follicles.
  • Board certified cosmetic surgeons can offer a wide variety of procedures for the removal of unwanted hair including laser hair removal.
  • It is best to discuss the procedure with the doctor before undergoing it.
  • Laser hair removal is considered cosmetic surgery so chances are that it will not be covered by your health insurance. This means you will have to pay for the whole procedure yourself.
  • Laser hair removal is very affordable so almost anybody should be able to afford it.

XpresSmile’s New Name is ExpresShine: New Brand Reflects Expansion Into National and Global Markets

XpresSmile has announced it has a new name: ExpresShine. The new name is the result of explosive growth into new markets, both national and global.

“XpresSmile has long been synonymous with brighter smiles and whiter teeth, but with more and more people looking for solutions to improve their appearance it made sense to offer our services to a broader audience,” said Kelly Lanspa, President of ExpresShine. “We have looked at areas that lack quality choices for teeth whitening and decided to make our products available to these markets. In addition, our new name is also much easier for people to remember.”

ExpresShine is the leading teeth-whitening vendor for Dentists, Salons, and Spas. ExpresShine offers only Dental grade products that are FDA approved. ExpresShine is experiencing explosive growth in the Dental markets and Salons and teeth whitening spas. ExpresShine is also consistently recognized by dental professional for our FDA approved materials and high quality. ExpresShine continues XpresSmile’s commitment to quality and customers service and will be introducing new products and services to support our customers and prospects. Please come visit ExpresShine and read our reviews on Facebook, if you are an XpresSmile customer, please come to ExpresShine’s Facebook page and post your reviews there to help us update our page and let others hear about your experience.

ExpresShine is committed to Quality. ExpresShine only uses FDA approved vendors and supplies, made in the USA. ExpresShine is also now international and is growing world-wide; we are looking for new representatives interested in carrying our teeth whitening business and line of products. ExpresShine has a proven record of excellent customer service and training programs for customers.

ExpresShine teeth whitening kits come in glamorous, individually packaged kits that can be easily displayed in storefronts. Our whitening kits are superior to others on the market because the ingredients are concentrated. The gels are made fresh in California at a FDA certified dental lab. Hydrogen Peroxide gels are not easy to make and cheaper gels will break down and separate quickly. Making H202 gel is like crafting a fine wine. It takes the highest concentration of H202 (so the gel won’t separate), a balanced PH, and water base for strong yet gentle whitening. In fact, it took our lab 7 months to create gels that have a shelf life of 18 months- the highest of any H202 gel on the market. Carbamide has this shelf life, but it doesn’t whiten as well. Each kit includes a bib, teeth wipe, transparent, form fitting mouth tray or paint-on brush tip and cheek retractor and 12% or 16% hydrogen peroxide gel that is made in the USA in an FDA registered, CE certified dental alb. The kit also includes rubber gloves and vitamin E swabs to reduce gum sensitivity. The syringes and gels are made exclusively for ExpresShine and include photo activator and the rubber plunger is removed so there is no chance for gel contamination from corroded rubber.

A New Smile A New You For 2010

During 2008 and the last year the teeth whitening industry has continued to grow in the wake of the worst financial and economic downturn for many years and this is likely to be due to the fact that people are spending more money on personal grooming, botox, gym memberships and cosmetic surgery to make them look and feel better through these troubled times.

It is difficult to read any magazines or view TV makeover shows without teeth whitening being mentioned or featured and this is likely to continue as we enter 2010 as the range of teeth whitening products and services seem to give consumers the choice to suit their budgets and personal requirements.

One company who has continued to grow is White Teeth Company – (http//:www.whiteteethcompany.co.uk) who have grown their range of clinics across the south of England. Marketing Manager Jason Scott comments that the growth is due to customer demand and many of our clients are referred from previous customers.

Teeth whitening products can range from a few pounds for home whitening kits purchased in supermarkets or online to more professional services like laser teeth whitening. Technology have helped develop the industry allowing the treatment to only take just over one hour and can be undertaken in one visit.

Teeth whitening is perfect for anyone who have stained teeth caused by lifestyle staining including smoking, red wine, coffee, tea, cola, curries etc etc. Most staining on the teeth will build up over a matter of time as the enamel absorbs the colorants in our daily diets and changes the colour of our teeth.

Like any service customers are looking for the combination of competitive prices, maximum convenience and obviously the best results possible and this is going to be the challenge for the fledgling industry during 2010.

Harley Medical Group service would be recommended by 98% of its patients

The Harley Medical Group, which has 26 clinics in the UK, reveals outstanding results from an independent customer satisfaction survey of patients from clinics nationwide for 2007 and 2008.

Combined results for 2007 and 2008 reveal 98% of patients would recommend the Harley
Medical Group based on their own experience – 100% responded positively in 2007 with 97% saying the same for 2008.

On overall satisfaction, patients were asked to consider all areas of service from treatment in the clinic, consultations with nurses and surgeons to their operation and post-operative support. Ninety-five per cent of 2008 patients thought the Harley Medical Group’s service was ‘very good’ or ‘good’ with 96% reporting the same for 2007.

Liz Dale, director at the Harley Medical Group, said: “We attribute these fantastic results as much to our strict medical ethos and consultation period as to the skill of our surgeons. At the Harley Medical Group we advise all patients to think long and hard about their surgery and to consider the implications for a minimum of six months before they begin the consultation procedure.”

Every patient at the Harley Medical Group will meet with a fully trained cosmetic surgerynurse counsellor for an initial consultation when each stage of the procedure, from consultation with the surgeon through to the post-operative, follow-up and recovery period will be explained thoroughly. The clinical aspects of the operation will also be covered in detail, any questions will be answered and concerns addressed. Nurse counsellors can also put potential clients in touch with other patients who have undergone the same treatment.

Only after both patient and nurse are happy to proceed will an appointment be made with a surgeon who will assess the patient for suitability and talk through the procedure in detail. (All surgeons associated with the Harley Medical Group in the UK are on the GMC Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery – in Ireland with The Medical Council Ireland – and meet the requirements of the Healthcare Commission, for practicing in the UK.)

  • The Harley Medical Group is the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider, performing more procedures and with more clinics than any other cosmetic surgery provider. It has been established for more than 25 years and is one of the most highly-regarded cosmetic surgery groups operating in the UK. It has treated more than 435,000 patients to date.

The Harley Medical Group works tirelessly to maintain the highest standards in the industry for the benefits all cosmetic surgery and non surgical patients. We are currently at the forefront of the campaign to ensure that the government continues to regulate the use of certain laser types used in cosmetic surgery and non surgical treatments so that patients are protected from rogue practitioners.

The Harley Medical Group is renowned for introducing and pioneering most new surgical and non-surgical techniques to the UK and Irish markets, such as Aesthera PPx, Laser Hair Removal, Cool Touch Laser, Silk Touch Laser, Collagen for lines and wrinkles, Laser for snoring, Tumescent Liposuction, LPG cellulite treatment etc. All new treatments and techniques are first thoroughly researched and tested before they are submitted for approval by the Group’s Medical Advisory Committee, as being suitable for application by the group’s fully trained and specialized plastic surgeons, doctors and treatment nurses.
