Don't Get Hair Removal From a Bottle

One of the most popular treatments at a skin rejuvenation doctor's office is laser hair removal. Unfortunately this means that there are also a lot of people out there who are interested in laser hair removal but don't want to pay the money to go to a real doctor to get it done. These people frequently turn to over the counter hair removal creams to get the results without putting in the time and money. As you may have guessed, the results are not nearly as consistent with these over-the-counter creams as they are with in-office laser hair removal procedures. In fact, a new report warns strongly against using over-the-counter creams without consulting a doctor (whether they're for hair removal, muscle aches or any other physical concern you may have). They particularly warn against creams compounded by a niche pharmacy because these aren't regulated by the FDA. This isn't to say that you can never use topical creams for beauty of health reasons. It's just a warning that you should make sure to consult a doctor before making use of medicines that are sold over the counter. As for the laser hair removal situation - it's a procedure that isn't that expensive and is well worth the money if you're seeking permanent - and safe - removal of body hair. Question of the Day: Do you take your chances on topical creams or do you check them out with a doctor before use? photo link
