The first impression is the best impression and the impact of your look contributes to the major part here. Have you ever wondered why you feel so good when you are done with your hair and nail? Did you ever notice the radiating confidence and positive energy when you are in your favourite dress and shoe?

The fact is that looking good helps you feel better. This is the ultimate reason why people spend a lot of money and time for costly cosmetics and complex cosmetic surgeries. Looking good depends on your overall health, personality and the way how you present yourself.

Looking good helps you feel better by increasing the self-esteem and self-assurance. Looking good will always give you an additional benefit of adding ‘a little more' in your life. Here are some interesting points, that will explain why looking good helps you feel better.

New Laser Hair Removal Technology Reduces Side Effects and Significantly Enhances Results

Laser hair removal popularity has increased to where it is now the third most sought after non-surgical treatment. New technologies are revolutionizing the industry by reducing side effects and improving results across various skin types.

In the last two years, laser hair removal popularity has increased so tremendously that it has become the third most sought after non-surgical treatment. While the market and demand for the treatment have increased, the quality of laser hair removal treatments in many cases has not caught up with the times. New technology such as the Elite MPX by Cynosure is revolutionizing the industry by reducing side effects and improving results across various skin types.

Patrick Vincent, Spa Director of Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics in Bay Shore, Long Island, NY, points out that "most laser treatment centers are not investing in up-to-date technology and produce lesser efficacy with higher risks of side-effects. Clients blinded by online deals (Groupon etc.) are not taking their time to research the best treatment options that are currently available with the latest advances in laser hair removal technology".

Patrick together with most Spa Directors and doctors in the field are thrilled with the increased demand for laser hair removal. However, he is also alarmed with the high number of online negative reviews from clients that are experiencing poor results with cases of undesirable side effects ranging from burns, scars and pigmentation. Many providers are offering laser hair removal treatments using older technology that does not produce results that are promised in advertising and marketing efforts and directed toward new clients. Some of these treatments are not safe for all skin types. Laser hair removal providers of offering clients treatments performed with the newest laser technology and knowledge of all available types of lasers used for laser hair removal is important and should be a priority for those seeking treatment.

Patrick can't seem to stress enough that "providers should not and cannot expect clients to come with full knowledge of laser hair removal procedures. They should not be left with limited information about the procedure before they make their final decision". Today, this is more important than ever, due in most part to online deals that are making laser hair removal treatment more affordable than ever with more and more clients willing to give this procedure a try without taking any time to research the technology used at their chosen clinic and the potential side-effects. Medical spas and clinics providing laser treatments who educate their customers and are dedicated to constant research, clinical trials, and new laser technology greatly reduce chances of errors resulting in higher levels of client satisfaction.

The Elite MPX by Cynosure, the laser technology of choice at Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics in Bay Shore, Long Island, NY, is representative of a new generation of cosmetic lasers that give the provider an ability to fire multiple laser wavelengths at the same time. "We have chosen Elite (MPX) laser hair removal for its revolutionary capabilities that are now becoming even more useful due in part to large numbers of darker skin clients who are searching for providers that can offer them a laser hair removal treatment that safe and effective."

Ethnic skin tones and darker-skinned individuals require laser light with long wavelengths and pulse widths, preferably with the 1064 Nd: YAG laser. As a comparison, shorter wavelength lasers such as the 755 Alexandrite laser are effective only on some lighter skin types. This type of laser is so well absorbed into melanin that it can lead to epidermal damage on darker skin types and can cause hyperpigmentation, a darkening of the skin, or hypopigmentation, a dramatic lightening of the skin. The Elite laser hair removal system at Perfect Body Laser however combines both of these laser wavelengths and can be used separately or combined for truly customized treatment. Furthermore, the Nd: YAG 1064nm laser is able to travel deep underneath the skin in order to reach melanin present in the hair follicle without harming epidermal pigment. This is the most optimal laser for ethnic skin tones.

Laser hair removal is not a "one-size-fits-all" kind of a treatment and not all lasers are created equally. Laser hair removal can produce the desired 70% to 90% permanent hair reduction with virtually no side-effects only when performed with the correct laser wavelengths and with settings adjusted for customized treatment on each type of skin. "Our clients are not all the same. Neither is their skin or hair. Why would we offer them a treatment that is exactly the same as everyone else's? The newest science and technology advances are not allowing us to stay in the past. Nor are Long Islanders, who demand and expect nothing but the best."

U.S. Army Set to Ban Tattoos Below the Elbow or Knees

Existing ink jobs could be grandfathered in.

The U.S. military and tattoos have an entangled history. The rise of the tattoo in popular culture started with floods of inked veterans—especially from World War II—returning home with them. The first tattoo parlor in New York City, established in 1846, served to mark up Civil War soldiers.

It is that strong history that's probably the reason why a blog post on the Army's website declared in 2009, "Today, it seems, you couldn't throw a rock into an Army formation without hitting a Soldier with at least one tattoo."

So it might be strange for the Army to put forth a new rule banning them on commonly tattooed portions of the body.

At the Stars and Stripes, Josh Smith (a former National Journal reporter) reports that Secretary of the Army John McHugh has approved, but not yet signed, a change to the Army's appearance regulations that would ban tattoos from the forearm, below the knee, or above the neckline. The Army will also require the removal of offensive tattoos, Smith reports,
Current soldiers may be grandfathered in, but all soldiers will still be barred from having any tattoos that are racist, sexist, or extremist.

Once the rules are implemented, soldiers will sit down with their unit leaders and "self identify" each tattoo. Soldiers will be required to pay for the removal of any tattoo that violates the policy, [Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler] said.
Forcing the removal of offensive tattoos is a step up in severity from current regulations. Currently, "commanders may not order the removal of a tattoo or brand. However, the commander must counsel soldiers, and afford them the opportunity to seek medical advice about removal or alteration of the tattoo or brand." If the soldier does respond to the counsel, the commander is to make sure "the soldier understands the policy."

For reference, here's what the Army considers offensive in tattoos.
(2) Tattoos or brands that are extremist, indecent, sexist, or racist are prohibited, regardless of location on the body, as they are prejudicial to good order and discipline within units.

(a) Extremist tattoos or brands are those affiliated with, depicting, or symbolizing extremist philosophies, organizations, or activities. Extremist philosophies, organizations, and activities are those which advocate racial, gender, or ethnic hatred or intolerance; advocate, create, or engage in illegal discrimination based on race, color, gender, ethnicity, religion, or national origin; or advocate violence or other unlawful means of depriving individual rights under the U.S. Constitution, federal, or state law (see para 4–12, AR 600–20).

(b) Indecent tattoos or brands are those that are grossly offensive to modesty, decency, or propriety; shock the moral sense because of their vulgar, filthy, or disgusting nature or tendency to incite lustful thought; or tend reasonably to corrupt morals or incite libidinous thoughts.

(c) Sexist tattoos or brands are those that advocate a philosophy that degrades or demeans a person based on gender, but that may not meet the same definition of "indecent."

(d) Racist tattoos or brands are those that advocate a philosophy that degrades or demeans a person based on race, ethnicity, or national origin.

Tips For Taking Care of Your Face

Taking care of the skin on your face is one thing you should start doing as soon as you are able to. Listed below are some simple things that you should do on a daily basis to care for your skin. These steps may help reduce acne as well as lessen the side-effects of acne such as dry skin and acne scars.
  • Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don't scrub. Overwashing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated. After cleansing, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends applying an over-the-counter (no prescription needed) lotion containing benzoyl peroxide. This will decrease oil and bacteria.
  • Don't pop pimples. Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring.
  • Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.
  • Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose brands that say "noncomedogenic" or "nonacnegenic" on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.
  • Protect your skin from the sun. It may seem like a tan masks acne, but it's only temporary. A tan may worsen your acne, not improve it. Tanning also causes damage to skin that will eventually lead to wrinkles and increase your risk of skin cancer.
  • One other thing which can help is to make sure that you get enough sleep and make an effort to remove the stress in your life. Zits often come out once your body is stressed, by getting adequate sleep you are able to help avoid this.

The Isolaz Difference

Acne Hasn’t Changed, But How We Treat it Has

Through technological innovation, Isolaz therapy can effectively treat acne without lifestyle changes, oral prescriptions or a regimen of skincare products. Treatment takes place in a doctor’s office and is comfortable and reliable, giving you quick and long-lasting acne clearance. That’s the Isolaz difference.

Clinically Proven Acne Clearance

Clinical studies by leading dermatologists have proven the effectiveness of Isolaz to treat acne.

  Immediate results within 24–48 hours, including reduced redness, clearing of skin discoloration and immediate drying/ flattening of the blemish.

  Significant decrease in number of acne lesions (spots, pimples, pustules) and a decrease in the amount of oil production.

Successful on All Skin Types

Isolaz treatment targets deep into the pores and is FDA cleared for use on all skin types (light or dark). It is safe, reliable and effective as a standalone acne therapy or as a complementary treatment to other acne regimens (please consult your Isolaz treatment provider). Isolaz can even jump-start a topical treatment regimen by helping your skin absorb skincare products better.

Successful on Non-Responders to Other Acne Treatments

Isolaz treatment has been proven to reduce lesions by over 75% within 2 months for patients who have not responded to antibiotics, topical products or lasers.

Fast Treatments

Isolaz treatments often take only 15 to 30 minutes! You can jump back into your life immediately after treatment with little to no downtime.


In a published clinical study, 100% of patients noted Isolaz treatments were painless.

A whopping 25% of adults under 50 are tattooed indicating that a vast market for tattoo removal services exists. Each procedure takes about 5 minutes to complete, and charges vary based on tattoo size, complexity, etc. A treatment package ranges from 6-12 procedures on average, spaced out 4-6 weeks, is usually required to effectively eliminate all traces of the tattoo from the patient’s skin. Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics in Bay Shore, NY specializes in tattoo removal.
