Laser Hair Removal – What You Need To Know

In laser hair removal, a laser light is used to damage the follicles much like in electrolysis. The hair either stops growing permanently or it grows slowly and is much lighter in color and texture.

Summer Sun and Skin Cancer

Most of us enjoy summer, doing all the fun activities that summer offers us.
