  • Skin resurfacing treatments

    I’m sorry if this has been discussed already but it’s difficult to navigate this site on my phone.
    I had electrolysis for approximately 4 years, on and off, and stopped due to work schedules. I felt my first electrologist did damage to skin around my mouth. Now I’m older and the skin has aged also, I’m looking into skin resurfacing treatments.
    My question is (for anyone who has has these treatments and professionals who have seen it or can give me an opinion), do laser or other “heat” treatments for the skin activate hair follicles, I.e. cause hair growth, or terminilise vellus hair? I read IPL can do this.

    Usually, I get my beauty procedures done right at my house because I’m too busy most of the time to go to a salon.

      I studied at med college and then went to work at a spa salon, and that's my opinion. A chemical peel is the most effective but the most painful procedure. Your skin literally changes to a new one, so there can be nothing more effective. However, your face looks terrible after the procedure for a while, and then you become 10 years younger. Just find a professional; here are some reliable salons for it https://onsitemedspa.com/ . I hope it helps you. Let us know what you have decided and did it work!

        If you wonder then why are hairs in the back of the head not susceptible to hair loss? Well, that only God knows. However, it is the case. Think of the baldest man that you know (who has not shaved off the hair 女士脫髮 on the back of his head). He still has a patch of hair back there. Even the baldest man has a retained horseshoe of hair in the back of the head. The only trick when performing a hair transplant then is to know what area is "safe" for transplantation, i.e., what area over time will not be lost when the person becomes older. That is one major reason why transplanting an individual at 20 years of age can be problematic. We simply do not know how much hair in the back of the head will not fall out over time. Plus, we may simply run out of donor hair to transplant the front of the head and maintain a natural result as more hairs (that were not transplanted) fall out as one ages.​
