Laser Hair Removal is a becoming a popular treatment, as the current fashion for both men and women is to have the clean look consisting of little or no body hair. Excess or unwanted hair growth is usually a result of genetics, hormones or certain medications. Recent advances in the technology have meant that the hair removal treatments are now a lot more effective and there is less risk of side effects from occurring, making it safer for consumers.

When discussing Laser Hair Removal, it is important to note that the body has 3 cycles of hair growth – Anagen (active), Catogen (transitional) and Telogen (resting). The laser energy destroys hairs in the Anagen or active phase, targeting the cells at the base of the hair follicle which are responsible for hair growth. As Laser Hair Removal targets only the hairs in the active phase, only a percentage of hairs are treated with each session. A series of treatments is required to clear an area, though less hair will return with each treatment and the regrowth will become fine, soft and sparse.

Laser hair removal treatments target melanin which is the dark pigment contained within the hair. Red hair contains a different type of melanin and consequently the treatments can be less effective for redheads.
The area must be shaved prior to treatment to allow the laser energy to be directed under the skin, and not to heat up the surface by having dark hair above the skin level. Any plucking or waxing must be stopped for several weeks before starting treatment, as the hair needs to be in the follicle for it to work.

The effectiveness of the Laser Hair Removal treatments is mostly dependant on the quality of machine used, the parameters or correct setting and proper candidate selection. An ideal candidate for Laser Hair Removal has light coloured skin and dark coloured hair. This stark contrast of colour allows the laser light to easily target the hair and pose little or no risk of harm to the skin. This is also why it’s important to avoid sun exposure and tanning when undergoing a course of permanent hair removal treatments.

It is important for the full area to be treated by the laser with each hair removal appointment so hairs are not missed. Any missed patches will require additional treatments in the future and the area may look patchy or have uneven hair growth. Hairs that do not fall out or shed within about 14 days have usually not been treated effectively. This is due to poor spacing by the operator or incorrect technique, which can often be avoided by finding a reputable laser clinic that has licensed and experienced operators.

Award-winning comedy writer, Ian Heydon (Kingswood Country, How Green Was My Cactus, The Samuel Pepys Show, The Year My Country Broke) recently took out an unexpected award – for writing about travelling with a disability.

In 2010 Ian was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. That led to the question – what does a writer who has a disability and who loves to travel write about? The answer was pretty obvious. Because Ian uses a cane for mobility assistance, he built a website called Cane & Able Travel and that site won the inaugural Business disAbility Award for Business Innovation in 2012.

Back in 2003, Ian had a travel book on Australia published called The Small Guide to A Big Country (Explore) and he subsequently bought a travel agent’s licence (Small Guide Travel). Much of Ian’s research for that book is still valid. As Ian says, “They haven’t moved the Sydney Opera House or most of Australia’s main attractions, so all I really needed to do was update where necessary and add the accessibility and disability facility information. It’s a bonus that the Small Guide Travel consultants can assist with itinerary advice and bookings.”

When Ian travels these days he uses both a cane and a wheelchair for getting around. “Before my diagnosis with MS I guess I felt a bit of pity when I saw other people in wheelchairs. I didn’t realise that wheelchairs give a person with a disability so much freedom. Mine allows me to get around much better at airports, especially when the boarding gate can be a fair distance from check-in, and it makes art galleries, museums and theatre so much more accessible and enjoyable.”

Ian first took his wheelchair on a trip to Dubai, London and Paris in 2012. While there are websites with attractions and disability information for those destinations in the pipeline, Ian’s first priority is writing about Australia. In late 2012 he visited Cairns and road-tested attractions like Skyrail and Quicksilver’s Great Barrier Reef as well as disabled-friendly accommodation. From this came the destination specific website, Cairns Disabled Travel.

The next cab of the rank was Canberra. According to Ian, Canberra is arguably Australia’s most rewarding destination for travellers with a disability. “There are flights from all other major cities and centres, they have an excellent public transport and wheelchair-assisted taxi system and all the major attractions are accessible, with many of them free. There’s excellent accommodation, terrific restaurants and bars and so much to see and do. It really is a fabulous tourist destination. Sure, after a couple of weeks there might be some thumb twiddling but for a few days away it is fabulous.” Ian visited Canberra in 2011 and 2013 to research accessible accommodation and attractions and the Canberra Disabled Travel website is now live.

Ian has a multi-destination itinerary on the drawing board for all Australian capital cities and major regional centres so you could see him soon in your part of the country. But the Kingswood? No, he won’t be taking the Kingswood!

 

The most obvious problems that people experience living in small areas are to do with not having enough places to put things. Whether you are living in a flat until you can afford something bigger, or downsizing to a smaller home after the family has flown the nest, it’s worth taking time to have a thorough clearing out. Be determined and keep only what you really need or love.

Depending on your situation, you may find that your present circumstances make an entire category of possessions unnecessary. If you don’t have a garden now, for example, you will not need to keep much in the way of gardening equipment.

Dispose of anything that is broken or past its sell-by date. This applies as much to basic items as to equipment and books, etc.

Get rid of any items you don’t like. Be ruthless and consider this a positive action -guilt and other misplaced feelings can stand in the way of letting things go.

Dispose of items that you do not have any use for any longer, for example sports or leisure equipment needed for an activity that you no longer pursue.

Is your wardrobe bulging? A lot of people only wear about 20% of the clothes they own. Pare down your wardrobe to the items of clothing that you actually wear on a regular basis.

Get rid of duplicate items.
Review your domestic correspondence and get rid of any documents, old bills and instruction manuals that are not current.

Create More Space
Converting an attic into a habitable room is a good way of increasing your floor area.
Head height is an important consideration -at least half the converted space should have a height of 2.3m. At least one window should also be installed, preferably one that opens. Options also include skylights that sit flush with the roof, or dormers that project outwards.

If you intend to use the space on a regular basis, you might want a permanent stairway of some sort.
Structural work may also be required, such as doubling floor joists to strengthen them, plus a number of rules apply regarding fire regulations and means of access. You may also require planning permission, particularly if the external appearance of the house will be altered.

Basement conversions are increasingly popular, although they can be expensive and disruptive to carry out, and much depends on existing ground conditions. If you have a full or semi-basement, it’s less problematic to devote the entire area to storage rather than living, provided it’s not damp or at risk of flooding. It is definitely wise to pack items away in waterproof, sturdy, containers with lids. Make sure that you label and keep a record of what is stored there.

Are you dreading your next electricity bill? Starting to worry about how the increases in electricity prices are going to affect you. Well you’re not alone, so here is what you can do to reduce your anxiety and your bills.

Most of the time simple and easy common sense measures can cut hundreds of dollars off your bills just by following the following steps.

Top Ten Ways to Reduce Your Bills FOR FREE

1. Most people do not realise how much electricity a simple light bulb could be adding to the cost of their electricity bills. Turning off lights when you leave a room will make a significant difference.

2. Try to avoid using the clothes dryer, if the weather is bad buy a clothes rank that you can use inside.

3. If going on holidays, turn off your electric hot water system at the meter board to avoid the system constantly heating up water when it’s not being used.

4. If you have a peak smart enabled air conditioner you can connect your air-conditioning unit to Tariff 33 – which provides a guaranteed 18 hours of electricity at tariff 33 rates. You may not be able to turn on the system on during peak times, but this could be a good compromise to still enjoy your heating/cooling system without costing the earth. Energex are currently offering $250 reward for split system (peak smart enabled) and $500 reward for ducted systems (peak smart enabled). To see whether your air conditioner is eligible go to the Energex website.

5. An old inefficient pool pump could be costing you up to $640 annually to run on tariff 11. By connect your pool pump to Tariff 33 (if possible) could save you hundreds off your bill. Energex are currently offering a $250 reward for connecting your pool pump to Tariff 33.

6. Turn off additional refrigerators. Have a good think about how much you really use the other fridge. If it’s only for the occasional party switch it off in-between time or if it is to store extra food think whether you really need to stock pile this much as you could be paying a fortune for “just in case you need it”.

7. When running your air conditioner set the temperature to 23 degrees in Summer, as every degree below this will cost you 10% more in running costs (eg. Running at 20 degrees will cost you 30% more than running it at 23 degrees) Or to save more open windows for ventilation rather than turning on the air conditioner in summer time.

8. Use cold water to wash your clothes. With the many washing detergents available today that are made for cold water washing it makes sense to use these rather using your electricity to heat up the water.

9. Once the weather starts to cool down, remember to close any windows that have been left open, use a throw blanket to snuggle up and keep warm whilst watching TV and get out the ugg boots. . If you do turn on the heater, keep the heat in the room you’re in by closing the door.

10. Using low flow showerheads in your shower usually consume less energy and provide the same amount of comfort.

All these free suggestions will reduce your energy usage and your power bills but they do take self discipline and children are often the worst offenders in leaving everything turned on. So if you don’t want to comprise on life style you can still reduce your bills by purchasing energy saving products such as a solar hot water system, solar power system, led lighting, skylights and monitoring systems.

Vinyl wall Cladding is a popular choice when it comes to homes, particularly because there are so many vinyl cladding colors from which to choose. The extensive palette of 13 colours will suit almost any décor or style of home and give it a modern appeal. Some cladding colours are bold and modern, others can make your home look authentically original with heritage designs that mimic old-style timber weatherboard, which means that you can give your home a totally new distinctive look, or simply restore some of its old charm.

The extremely competitive prices of installing vinyl cladding to your home exterior is another reason for the growing popularity, wether your looking to encapsulate asbestos fibro sheeting or flaking lead paint on older weatherboards. Taking into account that paint fades over time, leaving you no other option but to repaint quite often, where vinyl cladding is fade resistant, requiring less maintenance on your part and provides an overall better look for your home. No matter what your budget is, less expensive, yet durable, vinyl cladding is an excellent choice if you are considering changing the exterior appeal of your home. Even monumental homes have succumbed to its convenience since it can perfectly replicate real wood paneling in different horizontal and vertical styles. Our manufacturers even offer a range of decorative wide architraves including door and window surrounds and shutters.

Vinyl House Cladding is constructed out of a PVC plastic resin, which makes it remarkably strong. Unlike metal or aluminum, it won’t rust, conduct electricity, or dent even if a cricket ball hits it, the boards simply bounce back. And unlike wood, it won’t warp, rot, or chip. It also holds up remarkably against the elements since it’s rain, extreme UV, and wind resistant. It won’t wear down in the harsh Queensland environment or become affected by cold weather. In fact, it’s so long-lasting it will retain its physical qualities for up to 50 years and comes with a manufacturer’s lifetime guarantee. However, the real benefit of the material is its competitive price, it’s one of the best value materials around proving a real investment and unlike fibro or wood, vinyl Cladding installation is quick, easy, and undemanding, which also helps to reduce the overall price of the product.

But what will you have to do to keep it in good shape? Oddly enough, not much. It won’t attract termites or pests. If you hire the right people for the initial vinyl Cladding installation, it can act as a great insulator to protect your home against extreme temperatures (saving you additional money on energy bills). Also, you’ll never have to paint again. Since the entire product is cast in a certain color, the shade goes all the way through the material. Therefore, it’ll never peel, flake, or scratch like painted surfaces. Not only does this save you on aggravation and sore muscles, it will also save you from hiring a painter every few years. You can save money, time and hassle over a lifetime with this simple switch. So put it on your home improvement to-do list, and enjoy the style and comfort that a home with vinyl cladding provides.

As Queensland’s premier supplier and installer of house cladding we offer the most comprehensive range of colours available in the market giving the finished project a beautiful and long-lasting appearance and finish.

 

Manufacturers across the divide continue to produce quality products. We are all too familiar, with the attractive transparent packaging of toys, imported fruits, clothes, pens amongst other things. Unlike the previous times, customers can still have a glimpse into their prospective purchases, carefully examining them without necessarily compromising their state or quality (food).

It is as a result of these demands that the shrink film was developed. In the formative years; we were all accustomed to the brown paper bags which had our tree population on the decline. Subsequent move to the opaque store-name-christened polythene was a further disservice. Then came the perfect solution to all these problems, the shrink film.Initially, the shrink film was exclusively made from PVC (Polyvinylchloride).This is a plastic polymer (third most used plastic in the world) that had the capability of sealing products with a thin layer of plastic sheet. These sheets were often transparent to allow the customer have a view of the product.

The sheet would be wrapped over the product and passed over a heat tunnel or a heat gun. Normally, the length or circumference of the product would be measured, 10% of this value would be added then the sum is divided by two, this would give the size of PVC shrink wrapping to be used. PVC has the ability to shrink by 40% percent giving the packaging a tight grip of the product.

However, with time it was noticed that PVC could release small amounts of hydrogen chloride giving the products a characteristic smell in addition to poisoning. The sealers also would have small carbon deposits. The presence of a plasticizer in PVC had the drawback of hardening and shrinkage during cold weather and extreme stetching with subsequent temperature increases.

These drawbacks meant a suitable shrink film devoid of a plasticizer be developed. Polyolefin was found to have the packaging abilities of PVC but lacked the setbacks that faced the latter. It became a preferred choice of packaging. Offering a stronger seal and fewer odours. Its lack of plasticizer meant no physical changes to the shrink film. It would become the perfect storage solution; all weather .Lack of chlorine in its polymer meant no hydrogen chloride previously characteristic of PVC.

However, while its predecessor PVC enjoys machine compatibility and low cost purchases, polyolefin is the opposite, it remains relatively expensive and hard to use alongside machines.PVC on the other hand remains a suitable choice for manufacturers who don’t deal with edible products. Owing to its cheap price and machine compatibility it is a manufacturers darling.

It is of note that, both polymers are ideal for different packaging purposes. The choice of shrink film is determined by the product, budget and level of technology the producer in question has.

The undeniable fact is, packaging being the cornerstone of branding and advertising can be responsible for high sales volume or the reverse. Manufacturers and producers alike are today faced with the tough task of choosing the ideal packaging material. In the end the functionality of the shrink wrap can only be determined by the manufactures and producers.

It’s a well-known fact that communication is a key ingredient in a successful marriage. Without effective communication, a couple is unable to discuss important issues and resolve their disagreements. This can often lead to feelings of detachment, anger or resentment in the long term. Although I refer to communication in relationships these tips are equally important in any important relationship in your life.

Communication can be tough, especially if it is with someone you have been in a relationship with for a long time. After a while, couples get comfortable with each other and, as a result, the level of communication tends to decrease. Assuming your partner already knows something or not taking the time to communicate with them can lead to a relationship breakdown over time.

Comfort should not equal less communication. There are many issues that may arise if you don’t keep yourself open and make an effort to communicate with your partner. Follow these simple tips to keep the communication lines open between you and your partner.

1. Never Assume
It’s important not to assume something unless you’ve communicated directly with your partner about it. This could be anything from a roster of household chores, to making assumptions about the way your partner thinks or feels about a particular issue. If you’re unsure, ask your partner and avoid arguments or misunderstandings.

2. Say what you mean
If you have something to say, say it. But make sure you’re clear with your communication and that you’re actually getting the right message across. There’s nothing more confusing (and frustrating) than receiving conflicting messages from your partner. In some cases, it may even help to write your thoughts and feelings on a piece of paper. By writing it down you are able to construct your thoughts in a clear and concise way and ensure you’re getting all the important bits of information across.

3. Don’t be afraid of a disagreement
If you disagree with something your partner has said or done, you should let them know in a calm and reasonable manner. Don’t avoid these conversations for fear of a disagreement. While a disagreement may be difficult to deal with in the short term, an open dialogue about such issues will do wonders for your relationship in the long run. By staying quiet about issues that are important to you, you will only become resentful and angry.

4. Communicate the good, not just the bad
Communication in relationships is not just important when there is an issue to address. If you have something good to say about your partner, say it loud and often. By communicating feelings of love and appreciation with your partner you will nurture the love and trust in your relationship.

5. Make time to communicate
With work and kids and extra curriculum activities it’s easy to see how some couples can’t find the time to communicate with each other. It’s very important you set aside some time on a regular basis to reconnect and communicate with your partner. This may be every day or simply on a weekly basis. Make sure you shut off all electronics and remove yourself from distractions to really focus on what each other has to say.

AusPsychology offers professional counselling services to people having communication difficulties. Their experienced counsellors can help you improve your communication skills and work towards better relationships with your partner or significant others.

Cosmetic dentistry is all about creating a nice smile. In the last ten years we have became conscious of the colour of our teeth, and when whitening became available an interest in porcelain veneers and crowns also increased.

Originally performed by oral surgeons and periodontists, today, many well-trained general dentists perfom cosmetic dentistry. The focus now is not only on preservation, but on creating an attractive smile too. Attention is focused on the lightening and cosmetic restoration of teeth or on orthodontia, which allows crooked and badly positioned teeth to be moved into proper alignment.

Cosmetic dentistry includes processes which involve the addition of a dental material to teeth or gums, for example bonding, porcelain veneers or laminates, or crowns (caps). Other procedures available are gum grafts, and the removal of teeth or part of the tooth structure or gums -this is enameloplasty.

Lightening the teeth is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure performed. While a variety of lightening options are available, including over the counter products, professional treatments are recommended for the process.

A peroxide gel is put on the teeth and left in place for a variable amount of time. In a cosmetic dentist’s, heat or special curing lights speed up the process, where the face and gums are protected from the chemicals and lights. The process continues at intervals at home, where a gel is applied and held in place with a form-fitting tray for half an hour a day for approx two weeks. Users should be made aware that the process of whitening can irritate the gums and cause tooth sensitivity. It will not change the colour of fillings or crowns, and it is also possible that the process will result in splotchy teeth.

Sculpting, or tooth reshaping, is where the dentist removes parts of enamel to improve the appearance of a tooth, and used with bonding is used to correct a small chip, or to alter the length, shape or position of teeth, and it can be used to correct crooked or excessively long teeth. This procedure is also known as enameloplasty, odontoplasty, contouring, recontouring, slenderising, stripping or sculpting. It offers fast results, and can even be a substitute for braces under certain circumstances. The bonding process uses an enamel-like dental composite material, which is applied to a tooth’s surface, sculpted into shape, hardened with the use of special light, and then polished.

Veneers are extremely thin, custom-made porcelain pieces that are bonded directly to the teeth. They are an option for reducing gaps or disguising discolored teeth that do not respond well to lightening procedures.

Crowns are also generally composed of porcelain, but require the tooth being shaved down much more than needed for veneers. The procedure is used when the structure of a tooth is quite decayed or twisted out of shape.

Implants are titanium metal anchors screwed into the bone, with crowns later attached to these anchors.

Dental bridges are false teeth, known as pontics, which are fused between two porcelain crowns to fill areas left by missing teeth. This is known as a fixed bridge, and is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges may reduce the risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and can even improve speech, however they require excellent oral hygiene. They last up to ten years or more.

Gum lift is a cosmetic dental procedure that raises and sculpts the gum line. The procedure involves reshaping the tissue and/or underlying bones to create the appearance of longer or more symmetrical teeth.

Straight Teeth
Striaghtening teeth provides both functional and cosmetic benefits. By correctiing the bite, the teeth don’t bang into one another, and therefore last longer. Invisalign is a new technique to straighten teeth that uses clear plastic mouthpieces, with sequential trays made and used, further positioning the teeth correctly. Invisalign is an alternative to old-fashioned metal braces, and the most obvious advantage of the treatment is cosmetic: the aligners are completely transparent, therefore more difficult to detect than wire and bracket braces. Invisalign is also more comfortable, with patients ‘graduating’ to a new set of aligners in the treatment series approximately every two weeks, whereas metal braces are adjusted approximately every six weeks and apply greater forces. In addition, the appliance is removable, therefore food can be consumed normally, which also reduces the likelihood of tooth decay compared to using metal braces, as these cannot be removed for eating and cleaning, and also prevent accurate x-rays from being taken.

The average treatment time is about one year, depending on the complexity of the individual’s treatment, and simple treatments such as minor crowding may be as short as twenty weeks.

Prosthodontics
This branch of dentistry deals with the replacement of teeth by removable and fixed dentures. The latest improvement is the use of a flexible material that replaces the ugly metal wires that hold partial dentures in place. The new material is tooth coloured, snaps into place almost invisibly, and is thinner, lighter and stronger than the old materials.

Tooth-coloured materials are now replacing the more noticeable silver-coloured fillings, which are also extremely damaging to general health as they contain unsafe amounts of mercury. First used in the 1970s, the materials have been improved and now last much longer, and will eventually replace mercury fillings completely. New dental drills are also much faster than the older drills, and are air- and water-cooled, creating less heat and less pain.
