Are Laser Procedures Right for Everyone?

There’s absolutely no disputing the popularity of medical laser procedures. If they didn’t work, they wouldn’t be so popular, nor would the number of laser treatment options have continued to expand over the years. However, a big question on your mind might be are they the right choice for everyone? More importantly, are they the right choice for you specifically?

The short answer is that it all depends on a combination of your general health, your skin type, the skin issues you want to treat, and the type of laser. If you get the wrong combination of those things, it could cause your skin problems to get worse, not better. Nevertheless, the proper laser procedure for you can work wonders for your skin health,

The Issues That Laser Machines Can Treat

Laser procedure devices today are capable of treating many different skin issues. You might think that they are only meant to get rid of wrinkles, but that’s not true. They can also remove old scars, and they can even get rid of tattoos that you might not want anymore. Unwanted hair removal is also typically done a lot with lasers, as are general skin revitalization procedures that can make the patient’s body fix skin cells from the inside. That’s why choosing the one best suited to what you want to treat is so important.

Can You Fix Your Skin Issues at Home?

Before you run right out and make a laser appointment, you should know that there are some at-home treatment options you can try. They range from creams and lotions to at home light treatment kits and more. However, most of those treatments are more for prevention or treating minor skin problems than for reversing major skin damage. So, if your skin issues have progressed, you may have to choose some sort of clinical treatment instead.

Why You Might Choose Lasers Over Other Treatments

There are skin treatments available to you besides just lasers. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, light therapy, and ultrasound procedures are just a few of them. However, one reason to consider lasers first is that they aren’t as uncomfortable as some of those other treatments. As for the milder treatments, such as ultrasound, those may not be painful either, but they don’t show results as quickly as lasers can. Those reasons contribute to lasers continuing to be so popular.

Going in for Your First Laser Procedure

When you head to the clinic for your first laser treatment, you shouldn’t be too nervous. Laser procedures are very common and quite safe. Most of them are also fairly painless. The exception is ablative laser treatment, which can be a little uncomfortable. But regardless of the type of procedure you have your technician will take good care of you, as long as you go to a fully certified clinic. They can numb your skin before the procedure and even give you medicated cream to apply after the procedure is over. However, you should always discuss the process with the clinic in detail before you actually sign up for the procedure. That way you’ll know exactly what to expect.

Stylish Yet Inexpensive Sunglasses

sunglassesI am a thrifty shopper. I always look for discounted or inexpensive stuff but with value.

The first time I heard about stylish yet inexpensive prescription eyeglasses, I was not convinced. I thought it was too good to be true but after being a constant visitor to the Zenni Optical website, I decided to give them a try. Actually it was my hubby who encouraged me to do so.

The pair of prescription sunglasses pictured above are the ones that I decided to buy from Zenni.

Zenni Optical offers a variety of styles ranging from $6.95 to more than $40 per pair. I paid only $17.90 including shipping & handling for mine. I have already bought another pair from them and plan to buy more in the future. Their products are much better than the ones that I bought at a nearby store for more than 5X the price. They went far beyond my expectations. I am 100% satisfied.

In today’s tough economic times, every penny counts. Personally, why would I go somewhere else when I can buy high quality prescription eyeglasses at Zenni Optical for less. I know it is hard to believe that they are such a bargain but you should give them a try. Zenni Optical has a wide variety of glasses that you can choose from in different styles and colors.

Bladder Supports for Women #TryImpressa


 photo DSC_0009_zpsjdk6cixb.jpg
I know someone dear to me who deals with urinary incontinence. She experiences bladder leakage when she laughs hard and also when she coughs.  I spoke with her yesterday and told her that I would be sending her a few boxes of Poise Impressa.  She is very excited about giving it a try. She has been dealing with this problem for many years now and I think it has gotten worse now that she is getting older.

Urinary Incontinence is a problem for many women and sometimes prevents them from enjoying active and fulfilling lives. The new revolutionary Poise Impressa can help manage the stress urinary incontinence. According to a study, 9 out of 10 women said their bladder leakage was reduced or even completely stopped with Poise Impressa bladder supports. That is a very encouraging statistic.

If you have problems when you laugh, cough, sneeze, dance or exercise, you should give Poise Impressa a try. Here’s a $2.00 off Poise Impressa coupon for you to print. You should start with the sizing kit to find which size you find most comfortable. The Impressa sizing kit comes in three different sizes (1,2,3).  Inside the kit, you will find a $4 coupon for your next Poise Impressa purchase.  Each kit includes six bladder supports, two of each size. You should start with size 1.  If it feels comfortable and you have little or no urine leaks then size 1 is the right size for you.  If size 1 does not feel comfortable and you still experience leakage, continue to try the next larger size until you find the size that is right for you.

Impressa looks like a tampon but it is not. You can learn more about it at www.impressa.com.

What’s in my Toiletry Bag? #BringComfyBack


The summer season is my favorite time of the year here in northern Minnesota.  The temperatures are not too hot nor too cold for someone like me who grew up in the tropical country the Philippines.  Now that the summer season is coming to an end and before the fall season finally sets in, my hubby and I are going to take a trip out west to visit my sister and my hubby’s grand daughter.  The trip comes at a perfect time with the gas prices plunging across the nation.   photo DSC_0021_zpshrixtxng.jpg
It will be a long drive for us and I want to make sure that everything that I need gets packed well ahead of time.  My toiletry bag is cute (compared to my hubby’s) but it can nicely fit the stuff that I need.  A few panty liners from U by Kotex are a must.  I don’t like surprises from Mother Nature and to save myself from embarrassment, I need to safely pack panty liners and my favorite pair of undies before hitting the road.  That’s the first order of business when packing things for a long road trip, especially since it will be a ten day trip or more. I don’t want to leave the house for an extended period of time without panty liners and other basic toiletry needs.

At some point we all experience uncomfortable moments. The picture above is my uncomfortable face that no one wants to see.  Summer time is the most comfortable weather for me here in the northern Minnesota. The high humidity that we sometimes get during the summer season doesn’t bother me at all. I am used to high humidity because I grew up in a tropical country, the Philippines. When it comes to comfort, my purse is not an exception to the rule. I don’t like to carry a bulky purse so my purse carries only the very basic stuff that I need.  These are the things that I carry in my purse all of the time:  a pen, a small notebook, a pocket bible, a flashlight, my wallet, a cellphone, a small medicine box for my hubby, lipstick, underwear, a sanitary pad and of course a couple of panty liners.

The underwear, sanitary pad and panty liners are a somewhat new addition to my purse.  The thought of adding them came after a period came unexpectedly and if that happens when you are unprepared, it can cause a lot of embarrassment.  Since then I learned a lesson.  Now I always have that stuff handy in case of unexpected emergency.

Receiving Helpful Assistance

The human body is an amazing unit. Scientists and other professionals are still learning more about how the human body operates and functions. Although the life of a human being usually lasts for less than a century, there are ways that a life can be assisted and even enhanced.

Simple Exercise

A wonderful way an individual can receive beneficial assistance is to begin exercising. Practically everyone knows that exercise can be helpful to the body. A good way to start exercising is to walk. A short walk of about 20 minutes can do wonders for a body. In addition to this, people can feel great as they stretch their legs and explore the world. There are fitness clubs and centers where people can experience fun exercises with peers and neighbors. After all, exercise can be something that people can look forward to and enjoy. Most of the easiest exercises, such as walking and running, can be done without having to spend any money.

A Small Pill

As people grow older, they recognize that their bodies are not able to do what they had done in the past. A run or morning jog may not be feasible anymore. For younger athletes, they may be able to do amazing performances while competing but need an extra boost to recover the next day. While each individual has different needs, a supplement can be an ideal way for people to receive the assistance that is needed. Bionorica and other nutritional supplements can be just what a body needs in order to function properly.

Sleep Well

People of practically all ages do not receive the sleep that they need. It can be easy to skip some sleep in order to work, have a time of recreation or get some projects done around the home. People who get enough sleep can discover that they have more energy for the day. Furthermore, the body can heal itself as it receives a good sleep. For some, it is a matter of discipline to decide to go to bed at a specific time in order to be refreshed and ready for the next day.

There are a number of ways a body can receive beneficial assistance in order for individuals to function properly. The result is that people can lead productive lives. That can be a huge blessing that benefits society as well as the individual.
