Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2008
Beauty aisles are chock full of creams, lotions, scrubs and serums with sophisticated ingredients and a bounty of benefits. While there are plenty of solutions for crow’s feet and wrinkles, the remedies for facial hair can seem lacking by comparison. Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “Let’s Face It: Facial Hair Removal,” explains the pros and cons of the most popular methods to help readers choose the best option for their personal needs.
What causes facial hair growth?
Excess facial or body hair appears on women of all backgrounds. Multiple factors weigh in, including hormones, stress, heredity and ethnicity. It’s normal to find dark hairs on the face, neck and even the upper lip or cheeks. Hair can also grow in areas like the chest and back. Some women have just a few extra hairs, while others experience more dense growth.
Do it yourself
From plucking, shaving and waxing to depilatories and bleach, there’s certainly an array of hair removal methods. Finding the best method will depend on factors like how much hair a person has and how fast it grows back. Fortunately, most of these at-home treatments are low in price and offer good results.
Plucking or tweezing
Pros: One of the easiest methods, tweezing works best for stray hairs on the chin or eyebrows. When properly tweezed, hair is removed from the root. For the best results, invest in high-quality tools. When tweezing, grasp the hair and then pull it out slowly and carefully in the direction of hair growth.
Cons: Due to inefficient tweezers or rushing, sometimes only a portion of the hair is removed, leaving stubble and ingrown hairs. Side effects can include redness, a tingling sensation or white bumps where the hair was plucked. What’s more, tweezing takes time, since each hair must be removed individually. And the results don’t last as long as other methods.
Pros: A good option when hair growth is thick and tweezing becomes too time-consuming.
Cons: Results only last a day or two, after which the tell-tale stubble will surface. Shaving can also cause bumps, ingrown hairs and razor burn. Because facial skin is much thinner and more delicate than the legs, irritation is more noticeable.
Creams or depilatories use chemicals to dissolve the hair shaft below the skin’s surface.
Pros: Quick and inexpensive; results should last one to two weeks. Also, as the hair grows back, it should be finer.
Cons: The chemicals that dissolve the hair can be irritating to skin, especially on the face. Additionally, many women find that depilatories don’t completely remove the hair, leaving behind stray hairs that must be plucked individually.
Importantly, don’t use depilatory creams around the eyes. Use extra care with other sensitive areas on the face, such as around the nose or mouth.
Waxing is one of the oldest, most popular hair removal treatments for facial hair. Several varieties of wax are available, including azulene and beeswax, to effectively remove stray hairs from anywhere on the face. Typically, after the wax is heated, it’s applied to the skin. Then strips are pressed down and pulled off, removing the hair.
Pros: Results last anywhere from two to four weeks. With each treatment, hair should grow back softer and finer. Many women visit a salon for their waxing, but it can also be done at home. Thankfully, today’s waxing kits are user-friendly.
Cons: Depending on a person’s pain tolerance levels, waxing can be painful. The other downside? It’s crucial to wait until the hairs have grown out slightly, at least a week, before waxing again.
Pros: Considered the most painless option, bleaching is generally used for the upper lip.
Cons: Because bleaching doesn’t actually remove hair — it just makes hair lighter and less noticeable — it remains thick and visible, especially in the sunlight.
Today’s best options are electrolysis and laser hair removal. Choose a reputable practitioner before starting any treatments.
Electrolysis uses a thin needle and electrical current to destroy the hair follicle.
Pros: When done properly, electrolysis removes hair permanently. Because this method removes one hair at a time, it’s ideal for areas with stray hairs, such as the eyebrows, chin, cheek or upper lip.
Cons: Permanent results require several sessions, which can take up to a year or longer. Done improperly, electrolysis can lead to continued hair growth, or worse, scarring. People also shouldn’t pluck stray hairs, shave or wax between treatments, because this strengthens the hair, thereby hindering effectiveness.
Laser hair removal uses a laser to vaporize or destroy the hair root with pulsated beams of light.
Pros: Results typically keep hair re-growth at bay for three months, and side effects are minimal. Best of all, laser hair removal can treat large areas in a short amount of time. It’s also a great option for areas such as the upper lip.
Cons: Many incorrectly assume this is a permanent method of hair removal, but it’s actually considered permanent hair reduction. Also, because the laser doesn’t target individual hairs, it isn’t recommended for precise areas like the eyebrows or stray hairs on the chin or cheek.
Similarly, it’s not ideal for people with light skin and light hair or dark skin and dark hair. The best candidate is someone with light skin and very dark, coarse hair. Due to the laser’s reaction with skin’s melanin, hyperpigmentation can occur with darker skin. As with electrolysis, long-term benefits take commitment and perseverance.

Manning Up to Cosmetic Surgery
Women aren’t the only ones turning to cosmetic procedures for the occasional nip and tuck. In the US alone, the men’s grooming market is worth $ 3.5 billion — that’s a lot of money spent on vitamins, supplements, diets, exercise, skincare products, and of course, cosmetic surgery. Traditionally considered a female trend, men of all ages now hope to maintain their looks or improve their physical appearance by means of cosmetic procedures.
Combating Puffiness and Under-Eye Circles
We’ve all experienced them: Whether the cause is an evening in front of a computer screen scrambling to meet a deadline or a long night out with the girls, puffiness around the eyes can strike, making anybody appear older, tired and worn out. Not only are under-eye circles common among women, but there are numerous factors besides lack of sleep that contribute to an under-eye dilemma. Luckily, treatment is fairly simple with a little knowledge and a few remedies.
Options for Acne Scars
Acne can cause a host of changes in the skin and, leave behind a few parting gifts: scars or hyper-pigmentation. Ranging in size from small red dots, to large, deep pock-marks, acne scars are a very real skin trauma for many acne sufferers. But can these marks ever be vanquished? Yes! With smart skincare and a few simple treatments, acne scars can be reduced and the skin left with a smoother, more glowing appearance. Today, there are many techniques to help reduce the appearance of acne scars that actually work and, many are just a click away at most beauty retailers.
Buyer Beware: Medical Spas Aren’t All Medical
Currently, the go-to facility, a medical spa offers a range of treatments – the type offered at a dermatologist’s office, mixed in with the usual spa menu. So, there is a bountiful array of options. Some medical spas even offer plastic surgery. The medical spa’s concept is an enticing one-stop-shop experience: A medical treatment in an environment of serenity and calm. But not all that glitters is gold. Some women have experienced irreversible, harmful consequences, as a result of their visits. Learn some fundamental tips to make sure a trip to a medical spa is a safe, effective and fabulous experience every time.

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 6, 2009
Master aesthetician Shizuka Bernstein combats oily and congested skin this summer with a new facial targeting a notoriously troublesome area. The T-Zone Facial at Shizuka New York Day Spa (7 West 51st St., 6th Floor) deep cleans through lactic acid exfoliation and Shizuka’s signature painless pore extractions for a clear and radiant complexion.
The “t-zone” is the area of the face most prone to excess oil and acne breakouts in those with oily and combination skin types. Summer heat and humidity exaggerate these problems, creating clogged, enlarged pores and overly shiny complexions. Shizuka offers an effective remedy in her T-Zone Facial (60 Minutes, $ 140), just in time for the summer.
The T-Zone Facial begins with facial cleansing using Shizuka’s all-natural Clay Cleanser ($ 48 at ShizukaNY.com) that contains Moroccan lava clay to absorb excess oil and other clarifying ingredients such as peppermint and witch hazel. Cleansing is followed by a lactic acid exfoliation which removes the outermost layers of dead skin and other environmental pollutants that can clog pores and lead to blackheads and acne. Lactic acid was selected by Shizuka for its gentle efficacy. “I chose lactic acid for the T-Zone Facial because it is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin. It is still able to exfoliate well, but does not carry the risk of irritation and allergy associated with glycolic facials and other chemical peels,” Bernstein says.
Shizuka Bernstein has become well-known for her innovative treatments such as the Geisha Facial (a.k.a. Bird Poop Facial http://www.shizukany.com/geisha-facial.htm), but she is equally admired for her technique as a facialist which has consistently garnered her recognition from publications such as Allure and New York Magazine. Her signature painless pore extractions maximize results while minimizing the squeezing, pinching and redness often associated with facial treatments. In her T-Zone Facial, she focuses care on the forehead, nose and chin before sanitizing and closing the pores and applying her hydrating Shizuka NY Moisturizer and other anti-aging skin care products.
The T-Zone Facial is the perfect summer facial, appropriate for both women and men who want a complexion that is cleaner, more even, and healthily glowing. As a special introductory offer, Shizuka is pleased to offer the T-Zone Facial for $ 120 through Labor Day, September 7, 2009.
T-Zone Facial, 60 minutes, $ 140 ($ 120 through 09.07.09)
Shizuka New York Day Spa

New York, NY 10019
Shizuka Bernstein and her Shizuka New York Day Spa are consistently featured among New York City’s best day spas. The story of her innovative Geisha Facial has traveled around the world and has been seen on CNN, CNBC, Fox News, NBC’s Today Show, CBS’s The Early Show and The Doctors, ABC’s The View, GMTV (U.K.), RTL (Germany), Mezamashi (Japan) and E!’s Red Carpet Countdown to the 2008 Primetime Emmy’s.
Shizuka’s facials have been rated the best facials in New York City by New York Magazine, who also named her as a Skin Care Guru, and Allure who listed her among its Beauty Superstars.

Representing the future of skin rejuvenation, this effective and advanced light technology is designed to help diminish visible fine lines, wrinkles and age spots by illuminating the skin with LED red light to increase collagen production and to help protect skin from free-radical damage, including that caused by sun rays. The Luminescence facial leaves skin supple, firm and glowing and uses Epicurens innovative Enzyme Protein boosters to enhance the treatments effects.
Oxygen Luminescence Facial
Providing the ultimate rejuvenation and instant age-defying results, this treatment begins with a super hydrating treatment using a combination of oxygen, botanical serum and hyluronic acid to plump the skin. The treatment is followed by LED red light therapy to diminish inflammation, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and reduce the signs of premature aging.
This package provides an energetic edge ideal for those partaking in an active day of outdoor activities in Jackson Hole. The 80-minute intense therapy is customized by the therapist to address specific muscle issues and uses organic arnica oil, homeopathic preparations and enzyme therapies to soothe and penetrate sore muscles.

New Hyde Park, New York (PRWEB) July 20, 2009 -
Most people associate enlarged, and often unsightly, facial pores with the teen-age years, when puberty causes increased oil gland production and, in turn, larger pores. For many, however, the problem of enlarged pores and excess oil continues into adulthood. The condition, in fact, is one of the most common facial problems that adult women complain about, experts say.
“As with any medical problem, the degree of pore enlargement varies from person to person, but in some it can be quite pronounced and embarrassing,” says New York-based dermatologist Joshua L. Fox, M.D., F.A.A.D., medical director of Advanced Dermatology, P.C. and the Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery. “The good news is there are ways to improve the condition.”
What causes enlarged pores?
On the body, everywhere there is skin, there are pores. These tiny openings are responsible for secreting perspiration and oil–perspiration to keep the body cool, and oil to lubricate and protect the skin. Although it’s impossible to count the number of pores on any one person, some estimate as many as 1 million pores per square inch of skin.
Most of those pores are too small to be seen, which is desirable, Dr. Fox says. Small pores keep the skin looking tight and young.
It’s common for both men and women to have bigger pores around the nose, forehead and central facial area, where extra body oil is secreted. But those born with bigger pores, or experiencing the problem because of either a medical condition or the environment, may see them all over, though the face is where they tend to be most noticeable, Dr. Fox says.
In addition to heredity, causes of enlarged pores generally include:
Skin damage caused by chronic, unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays
Oily skin and seborrhea,, one of the most common skin problems, characterized by a red, itchy rash and white scales
“Enlarged skin pores sound like a somewhat silly problem, but it can be a real issue,” explains Dr. Fox, who as a leading authority on skin cancer, cosmetic surgery and laser procedures is also a spokesperson for the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. “Enlarged pores can be quite prominent and unsightly, causing people to have self-confidence and self-esteem issues and to just not feel good about themselves,” adds Dr. Fox.
How enlarged pores are treated
Keeping the skin clean, and free of excess oil, is among the best ways to care for enlarged pores. This will also help prevent blackheads, which on the face can draw attention to larger pores.
The internet offers many alleged holistic and “proven” home remedies. But like most health experts, Dr. Fox recommends people with the condition stay away from online advice or self-treatment and instead to seek the help of a board-certified dermatologist.
“There are good over-the-counter and in-office treatment options. But whatever a patient chooses, it should be with the guidance of a physician,” Dr. Fox stresses.
Topical treatments include using a facial cream with benzoyl peroxide, which removes excess oil and dead skin, or salicylic acid, which helps prevent pores from clogging. Also helpful are topical acne creams made with sulfur or resorcinol, or skin astringents used to clean away oil. Products which stimulate collagen and elastin, like vitamin C, are also useful because they may help the pores from stretching. Lastly, topical retinoids and retinol can help reduce oil production and increase collagen and elastin.
Other treatments performed in a doctor’s office include:
Microdermabrasion. A technique that uses tiny rough grains or crystals to buff away the surface layer of skin and, with it, excess oil and dead skin.
Laser resurfacing. Short, concentrated, pulsating laser beams are used to carefully and precisely remove dead or irregular skin, layer by layer, while stimulating and tightening underlying collagen.
Chemical peel. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, and reveals “new” smooth skin underneath. Over-the-counter peels are also available.
For most people, it’s a combination of good, at-home facial cleansing and doctor care that leads to the best results. Dr. Fox advises patients to be thorough, but careful in their facial cleansing and not to over scrub or rub, which can cause pores to be enlarged. “And since it’s summertime and sunny, it’s important for me to stress the effects of unprotected sun exposure. Sunscreen use is essential for everyone, but those who are unhappy with large pores should be extra diligent since sun damage is one of the causes.”
