Laser Hair Removal

has gained its popularity due to its effectiveness, convenience, minimal side effects, almost non-invasive, painless and produces long-term results compared to traditional hair removal techniques such as shaving, plucking and waxing.

The number of sessions required depends on the patient. The patient’s skin type, skin color, type of hair, hair color. Generally, patients would need a minimum of seven sessions depending on the coarseness of the hair and the color of the skin. Also, the main reason of the growth of hair if it is a medical condition such as hirsutism may require more sessions. Medical conditions or patients under medications that causes more hair to grow may require more sessions. Coarse dark hair on white skin is the easiest to treat.

The period in between sessions that is highly recommended is 3-8 weeks depending upon what is the treatment area. The safest would be six weeks, as hair growth cycle must be completed before the next hair removal session. During this time before the next session, the hair would be allowed to grow and the effect of the treatment is that hair would fall off by its own without any efforts from the patient.
Are there risks, side effects and is it painful? The worse side effects would be swelling, itchiness and redness around the treated area that would last for a maximum of 3 days. While being treated the feeling is similar to snapping rubber bands on the skin. Depending on the pain tolerance of the patient, anesthesia is available at Canadian Medical Center such as cream that is applied half an hour before the session starts. The risks are minimal depends on the machine used and the skill level of the laser technician. Check out our highly trained technicians to assure safety and security.

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy or before was physical therapy is a treatment which the aim is providing a remedy for a physical impairment. It also promotes the mobility functions of the damaged muscles and joint as an alternative cure. As well as, involves pain management through mechanical movements and other strategies to indulge a patient in a combination of movements and activities that speed up the process of rehabilitation. Physiotherapy is a field which ensures that a person who has suffered any muscle and/or joint injury or operation, gets back to a normal lifestyle. Through the help of the experts in this field known as, physiotherapists or the physical therapists.

Although physiotherapy has become an alternative cure for many diseases, it does not infer that physical therapy is just an alternative treatment to medicine. Instead, physical therapy is a clinical science in the health field. The physiotherapists get an education of human anatomy, physiology and also neuroscience. This is to make themselves equipped to provide the patients with the physical therapies without endangering their bodies to any sort of damage a layman would do. Physiotherapy is a dynamic field but it is often perceived as only limited to sports-related injuries. Also, it is not only about treating old people who do not mobilize that much. Physical therapists provide many services like pain management, flexibility, and other enhancements. For people from any field of life. Physiotherapists provide an alternative cure in the hospitals and keep in mind that it is a proper scientific field. And not just a sidelined subject in medicines. Another area in which the pain management and physical therapy sessions prove to be very useful is relieving the working people from the pains, injuries, and disorders. That they usually develop due to the routine stuff they do daily. It may include stiff necks, over pressurized joints, backache and many other problems depending on the nature of job and work of the patient. (Viehmann et. al, 2014).

Physiotherapy field has evolved in the recent past and the way it is now looked at is way different than before. Now, physiotherapy is accepted to be an alternative cure to the medications for the routine problems, pain management and diseases of muscles and joints. It has been a trend to people and the doctors to use and prescribe medicines and pills for the muscles and joints’ problems. This is not the trend anymore. Now you can hire the services of physiotherapists to cure some major physical conditions. Physiotherapists can treat including asthma, back pain, cerebral palsy, and arthritis. Physiotherapists teach the patients how to breathe in a relaxed manner so that the asthma problem is controlled at the maximum. Back pain may be cured through manual therapy through exercises that mobilize the backbone and muscles. These exercises bring the patient back to the normal ability to mobilize. Cerebral Palsy is cured by making the patient physically dependent by enhancing the mobility of the patient. Arthritis is one of the diseases that is also treated through physiotherapy. It is done by strengthening and mobilizing the affected joints. (Nordqvist, 2014). The alternative cure should not be misconceived and one must not think that physiotherapy is a second or third-grade option.  Or as a last choice, rather as a first option. The advancements in the curriculum in the field of physiotherapy has made this alternative cure to become a preferred treatment routine for most of the common diseases. Some of these diseases were never considered to be possible such as asthma.

This field of clinical health science called physiotherapy (commonly known as an alternative to medication) has cured many diseases. The critics must admit that this field has evolved to a scale where all the misconceptions should be removed and people must start taking this profession and treatment seriously. It provides so many services and makes your life pain free from its pain management. Physiotherapy enables you to move freely and recover from any incidents which might have made your life difficult and painful. Physical therapy experts are also psychologists as they also have to motivate and encourage the patients to get up and start a normal life again and sooner than expected. So, do not feel depressed and pull your socks, we are here to take you to the right path and make you feel strong. Let us make this life a healthy, fit and pain-free blessing for all of us. Folks, finding difficult to move, get into the groove and contact us for physiotherapy sessions and get mobilized through our certified physiotherapists.
