It's impossible not to notice, how our modern pop culture's stereotypes influence how women should look after giving birth. It all comes down to a not-so-realistic picture, an expectation that many believe is unattainable and simply impossible to achieve with anything conventional.

The Dos And Don'ts Of Laser Hair Removal in New York City

- DO shave in between treatments. This is the best way to quickly remove hair without damaging the root. Your beauty therapist will shave the area before applying the laser to your skin, anyway, as any visible hair will only get singed otherwise!

- DON'T apply heavy make-up for 24 hours after your laser treatment to avoid clogging the skin and causing breakouts. If you really have to, opt for mineral types, such as Jane Iredale, Inika and bareMinerals which let the skin 'breathe.'

- DO avoid sun exposure - and lay off the fake tan, too. Lasers are more compatible with paler skin-types, so, even though a tan looks great, it'll minimise the efficiency of the laser, preventing the energy from making its way to the root of the hair.

- DON'T wax, epilate or pluck your hair in between treatments as it removes the hair from the root. Lasers work because they are attracted to the hair's pigment underneath the skin and if it is completely gone, there won't be anything there for the laser to zap. If this is the case, you might have to wait up to another four weeks for the root to re-form until you can be treated again.

- DO wear a high factor SPF. After treatments, skin becomes more sensitive to UV rays, so always slather it in a high factor sunscreen to protect it from things like hyperpigmentation and sensitivity.

- DO exfoliate the area gently as it encourages the dead roots to fall out after every treatment and will make your skin look less bumpy and shadowy.

And if you prefer to DIY, here are the very best at-home laser hair removal systems on the market, approved by ELLE of course.

If you feel that dermatologist pitches for sale then look for some other doctor. It is a doctor’s clinic, not a shop. Make sure that selected dermatologist or staff members do not push you to buy products, remedies and treatments which are not related to your treatment.

Generous sampling policy matters

It also indicates that the dermatologist is conscious of budget and prescribed medicines. If chosen dermatologist allows you to try a product before buying it then it is just a great sign. Instead of being shy, ask for samples as many times even doctors have to trash them up.
