Preventing of razor bumps
Laser hair removal is the best method of removing unwanted hair in individuals affected with this condition. The laser device is programmed to selectively target the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying it, while leaving the skin intact. There is an increased risk of skin damage is individuals with darker skin types because of greater amounts of pigment in the skin.
Electrical clippers are found by many to cause less bumps than razors. If one must shave it is important to avoid a close shave to help prevent razor bumps.
Below are some principles to avoid razor bumps
1. Brush hairs with polyester sponge before shaving
2. Wash beard, use pre-shave cream or gel
3. Use a sharp blade and rinse after each stroke
4. Avoid double and triple blade razors
5. Shave in the direction of hair growth
6.Do not pull the skin taut

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that freeze and destroys fat below the surface of the skin. It is applied with a hand held device. Patience can experience some weight loss but it it's purpose is more to contour the shape in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
Men and women can be good candidates for CoolSculpting. The procedure uses cool temperatures so you should not undergo the procedure if you cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cold agglutinin disease.
Some plastic surgeons and dermatologist use CoolSculpting in combination with other body contouring procedures like liposuction. Ask your physician which options are best for the cosmetic goals you are trying to accomplish.
The treatment area will be pinched into the CoolSculpting applicator. You should not feel pain, only some pressure and suction for the first few minutes of the treatment. After that, the target area will become numb to the cold. The treatment will last roughly 60 minutes, during which you can read, check email, watch a movie, or even nap.
After the applicator process if it feels like there is “extra love handles underneath the skin” this fat will be sucked up by the applicator. Your provider will massage the site, and the lump should quickly disappear. As this is a no-downtime procedure, you’ll be free to continue with your regular activities right away.
What happens to the fat?
The fat cells are removed permanently. As adults, we don’t produce new fat cells, so the number of cells destroyed and removed from the body remains permanent. That said, when we gain weight, our fat cells expand. Gaining weight after CoolSculpting could still mean an increase in the size of the remaining fat cells.
What the difference between liposuction and Coolsculpting?
Liposuction can produce dramatic results and sometime requires general anesthesia. Coolsculpting does not require anesthesia but produces less dramatic results.
