Preparing Yourself For A Long Hospital Stay

Welcome to my site about tactics you can use to cope with hospitalization. I am Edward Collins. I created this site after a long hospitalization left me feeling uncomfortable and dying to go home. I was ill-prepared for the lengthy stay at that facility. Despite my nurses and doctors’ best efforts, I felt lonely, bored and somewhat isolated during my stay. On this site, I will help you prepare for hospitalization well before you need your next medical procedure. Please come by my site daily to learn the information you need to know. Thank you for visiting my website about preparing for hospitalization.

The Most Persistent Myths About Hair Removal


Having hair where you do not want it is bad enough. But there are many pervasive myths about hair removal which make the process even more difficult. If you learn about these myths and ignore them, you can focus your energies on hair removal treatments that actually work.

You Should Apply Lotion After Waxing

Waxing is highly effective. However, some of the treatments that you are told to apply to your skin after you wax are not. You should not apply lotion or oil to your skin after waxing because you can block pores and cause skin irritation.

Shaving Makes Your Hair Grow Back Thicker

An old wives' tale is that hair grows back thicker when it is shaved. This myth comes from how hair feels thinner when it is laying down. The hair feels thicker where it grows back in, but it is actually the same hair. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with shaving your hair. Laser hair removal also will not cause more hair to grow. Otherwise, it would be used as a treatment for baldness.

Laser Hair Removal Has The Same Effect On All Hair

You will need to consult with a dermatologist before you have a laser hair removal treatment. The effects of hair removal are based on the hair thickness, the type of skin and how much hair you have. However, you will eventually achieve the results you want.

Hair Removal Is Really Only Hair Reduction

During the first hair removal treatment, only some of the hairs are removed. However, an additional follow-up treatment will remove the surviving hairs. Also, it is necessary to have multiple treatments because the hairs that are in the resting phase will not be killed by the treatment. With later treatments, these follicles will be removed. Therefore, the treatments are intended for hair removal, not reduction.

Laser Hair Removal Is Painful

Laser hair removal was painful at one point. However, improvements in the procedure have made laser hair removal less painful. The "lasers" that were painful weren't actually lasers, but were instead flashlamps. 

The Same Treatments Will Work For All Hair Types

Laser hair removal works the best for those who have fair hair. However, those with dark hair may need other treatments to completely remove their hair.

If you are having difficulty removing hair permanently in a particular area, it is a good idea to visit a dermatologist. Dermatologists are able to use hair removal treatments that can cause unwanted hair to stop growing back. Contact a clinic like Gateway Dermatology PC for more information.
