How To Avoid A Laser Hair Removal

Mpculture

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure which is used to remove unwanted hair with the help of a concentrated beam of light. This hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and Dark hair. The first thing when you need to do the hair removal, then there’s no other option as best as laser hair removal. When deciding to go for this treatment it can be done with two methods, permanent and temporary.

Have you heard rumours of burns, pain and redness after laser hair removal? While laser hair removal is perfectly safe and relatively pain-free, it pays to do your research, be prepared and follow the recommended aftercare. Here are our top tips on making sure you avoid a laser hair removal nightmare.

Choose the right clinic

Perhaps the most important decision you will make when it comes to laser hair removal is choosing the right clinic. Most reputable skin clinics will offer a complimentary initial consultation to ensure you are provided with the best possible treatment options for your requirements.

This allows the technician or therapist to assess your eligibility for treatment and inform you of your options before you commit to payment for services. At Australian Skin Clinics, we offer free consultations prior to your hair removal session to ensure we understand your needs and can provide the highest quality treatment.

It is also important to check that your clinic has access to the latest tools and equipment in order to provide you with the best possible service. If the clinic appears run down or the equipment looks outdated, consider taking your business elsewhere. At Australian Skin Clinics, we use the highest quality Candela YAG and Gentlelase lasers for medical-grade treatments with long-lasting results. All our laser technicians are qualified, professional and above all compliant with the highest government regulations, including Class IV laser training in hair removal.

Before the session

Preparation is important when it comes to laser hair removal. Make sure you avoid wax/depilatory cream, fake tan and getting sunburnt up to two weeks before your session. This is important, as the treatment uses a cosmetic laser that shoots a concentrated beam of light directly at the pigment in your hair follicles and will also sizzle any pigment on your skin, including tanning products.

Ensure you shave the area to be treated roughly 12 hours prior to your laser hair removal session. This may seem counterintuitive, however it is safer and more effective to treat shaven skin. Damage can occur if the laser energy hits the hair above the skin, as the hair shaft can heat up and result in burning. Read our list of 10 Things You Need To Know Before Laser here.

During the session

When you arrive for your laser hair removal session, double check the operator has a laser license and their equipment is gold-standard and medical-grade, which is what you’ll find at Australian Skin Clinics. Once your session has commenced, make sure you advise your laser technician if you experience serious discomfort.

Most people find laser removal to be quite tolerable and describe it as an elastic band snapping the skin. However, if you are in pain, a technician can adjust the laser accordingly or provide relief.

After the session

Ensure you follow your technician’s post-care advice stringently and avoid makeup and the sun for 48 hours after your laser hair removal session. Each person will react differently to treatment, and common responses may include pinkness and mild swelling around the hair follicles.

This can be combated by applying post-laser treatment products (e.g. Balense Recovery Cream) and cold compresses. Continue for up to five days if necessary. If you experience any serious discomfort and/or swelling, contact your clinic immediately.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno First Drive Review

Primovox

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Overview

Maruti Suzuki Baleno gets a mid-life update with fresh set of cosmetic and added features inside the cabin. The vehicle is available in four trims – Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. The vehicle is available in petrol and diesel engine options. The vehicle is available in six colour options – pearl artic white, premium silver, nexa blue, autumn orange, phoenix red and magma grey.

The Baleno hatchback now features a revised bumper which sports a wider centre air-dam and air ducts on either side which are surrounded by the C-shaped profile. The new grille features a three-dimensional detailing and has been slightly tweaked to make the face look wider. The vehicle now gets precision cut two tone 16-inch alloy wheels.

For freshness, the Baleno now gets black interiors with premium blue detailing. The hatchback gets a dual tone seat fabric design and an upgraded next generation Smartplay Studio connected infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The device also gives out vehicle information and alerts on low fuel, parking brake, etc. Standard safety features includes dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat mounts and rear parking sensors are standard.

Under the hood, the Baleno is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that generates 84bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. The diesel on the other hand gets a 1.3-litre engine that generates 75bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. Both the engines get a five speed manual as standard, while the petrol offers a CVT option.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Exteriors

The highlighting feature of Maruti Suzuki Baleno cars is its sporty look. A glance at Baleno images shows a unique and extravagant appeal. Its wide stance makes it appear like a big car. However, it has modest specifications. The Baleno length is 3995mm whereas its width and height are 1745mm and 1510mm respectively. Its wheelbase of 2520mm makes Suzuki Baleno an extremely stable car. Baleno ground clearance of 170mm is better than that of other hatchbacks in its segment. It is not a high ground clearance, but can still sail over obstacles on the roads.

Its angular headlights complement the beauty of this car. The robust grille with the Suzuki symbol presents an imposing sight. Some of its variants come with attached fog lamps whereas the base models have provisions for the same. Specific Baleno models come with black alloy wheels. However, the characteristic features present in all Baleno variants are LED rear combination lamps and rear parking assist sensors. Baleno comes in six beautiful colours, such as Magma Grey, Nexa Blue, Pearl Arctic White, Premium Silver, Phoenix Red, and Autumn Orange.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Interiors

This is the most important part of the car, as this is where majority of the time is spent. The interiors of Marutis have been highly appealing, be it the Celerio or even Ciaz or the new Swift. The Baleno is no exception and this is the new hatchback that gets a new set of interiors. The Baleno gets a new set of interiors and the dashboard is highly appealing. Pictures don’t do justice to this hatchback’s interiors as they do look stylish and are premium.

The steering wheel is the next-generation Maruti design and it has a new instrument cluster with a TFT screen that shows current fuel efficiency, average fuel efficiency, distance to empty, current torque and power being used. The top-of-the-line variant gets Apple’s CarPlay system that is a good integration of the latest technology in a car. Maruti claims that Android Auto will also be soon added to this list.

The space on the Baleno is good in both the rows, however it is a bit uncomfortable at the rear as the recline is limited. There are no rear AC vents, but still the cooling is good enough. We still have to test this product in the heats of Indian summer and give a complete feedback. The Baleno’s ergonomics is well-sorted and there are no negatives that we could find.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Transmission

While the S-Cross got a brand new diesel, the Baleno unfortunately has to do with the tried and tested mills. Petrol is the same 1.2 litre K-Series engine which pushes out 85 PS @ 6000 rpm and 115 Nm of torque @ 4000 rpm. While the engine feels refined and linear in its power delivery its feels just like a Swift when it comes to performance. The diesel too gets the same DDiS mill from the Swift with 75 PS and 190 Nm which is a tad bit disappointing considering the 90 PS tune would have been ideal. While the diesel offers slightly more punch compared to the petrol, it feels noisier with the diesel clatter filtering into the cabin

Both the engines come mated to the 5-speed gearbox which works well in the diesel but feels a tad bit notchy in the petrol. There is also an option of a CVT gearbox for people wanting an automatic. The gearbox has the typical rubber-band effect of most CVT’s when you put your foot down, but then for most of its in town use feels quite adept. We can’t help feel that Maruti could have offered or should in the future at least offer more powerful engine options considering how capable the platform is. But what you do get is class-leading fuel efficiency with the petrol claiming 21.4 kmpl and the diesel a whopping 27.9 kmpl.To know more information on Maruti Baleno visit Resultmag

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Driving

The ride of the Baleno car is very good. We have only driven the 195/55R16 (top-of-the-line variant) and yet to experience the other variant that comes shod with smaller tyres. But the ride will more of less remain the same. The suspension absorbs all the bumps with ease making it a smooth ride. On the other hand, the handling of the Baleno is just more evolved than the Swift. The alacrity of the chassis is a lot more superior to the other Maruti products thanks to the lighter weight chassis. This not just enhances the power and efficiency, but also improves the driving dynamics. The steering wheel too is light and feels comfortable to drive in city. It does weigh up a bit making it a joy to drive on the highways too.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Safety

Baleno cars come with high-quality suspension, such as Macpherson Strut for the front wheels and Torsion Beam for the rear, to ensure that its passengers get an uneventful driving experience, even on bumpy countryside roads. Baleno tyre size of 195/55R16 is ideal for a hatchback of this size. Ventilated disc brakes on all wheels prevent skidding on slippery roads. A manual handbrake makes it possible for Baleno cars to remain stationary while parking as it prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards.

All Baleno variants come with dual airbags for driver and front seat passenger. Rear sensors with camera allow you to park your Baleno without any problems. ABS and EBD provide incident-free braking as it prevents skidding of the wheels when you apply sudden brakes. An engine immobiliser system proves handy because no can operate the engine without inserting the vehicle’s keys into the ignition. Other safety features include child safety locks and a central locking system.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno Final Thought

The Baleno is based on the new, Suzuki fifth-generation platform that is lighter, rigid and safer. Designs are subjective and the Baleno doesn’t top the list when it comes to styling, but what it gets is a complete package from the country’s best-selling car maker. The interior quality, the space and the drivability is one of the best in its segment. Maruti is ticking all the correct boxes with the Baleno and this is what the customers need. This is the new-generation Maruti and it stands strong, sending a signal to the competition that it is not going to stay quiet and it will not give up its market share. It is there to lead and hold on its market share. The Baleno is the first one and many more are coming in.

Maruti Suzuki is once again flexing its muscles with the Baleno and this is the segment that is already on a rise. The brand value adds on to it and it makes it a great option to buy, especially the petrol. Once the price tags are revealed that is when we can give a clear opinion. The only think that will stop buyers from getting a Baleno is the badge value that Maruti Suzuki holds in the premium segment at the moment in the premium segment.

Honda Accord Performance & Price

Primovox

Honda Accord Overview

Honda Accord has been a prominent name among the elite class buyers in the Indian market. The previous-generation Accord bagged several accolades from the auto aficionados as well as the buyers due to its striking exterior appearance, luxurious interior cabin and imperious performance. However, the Japanese automaker discontinued the saloon a couple of years back because of unsatisfactory sales figures and did not launch the facelift model instantly.

After a tumultuous wait of over two years, the company has reintroduced the Accord saloon in India, albeit in a hybrid avatar. The ninth-generation model was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo in February and the extravagant response that it got from the buyers catapulted Honda to bring it to the Indian shores.

Identical to the preceding model, it would be sitting at the top of company’s vehicle line-up, while being continued to be retailed as a CBU. Needless to say, the new-generation Accord is smaller, lighter and advanced than its predecessor. Unfortunately, despite being a hybrid vehicle, it wouldn’t receive benefits from the FAME scheme of the Indian government as it is not being locally assembled. Honda Accord Hybrid would take on the likes of Toyota Camry Hybrid and the yet-to-be-launched Volkswagen Passat GTE.

Honda Accord Exteriors

What made Honda decide on the Hybrid? Statistics clearly show that the Camry sells more in the Hybrid form and that was reason enough for Honda to follow suit. It isn’t the first time Honda is bringing the Hybrid technology to India. Honda had launched the Civic Hybrid previously with little success as this car was much ahead of its time. This time however, the Japanese manufacturer is confident that the Accord will shake up the segment. We took the Accord for a short spin in Hyderabad to find out more.

The design has got a lot of modern elements while keeping the original design DNA intact. This means this car has an unmistakable silhouette with the right proportions. The most striking feature being the LED headlamps and tail lamps. The Accord has grown in size over the years and it looks much more sophisticated with a certain sense of opulence. The 18-inch alloys look pretty neat too. Indians love chrome and the new chrome grille will only add to the desirability.

Honda Accord Interiors

The interiors are quite fresh with some impressive quality, fit and finish. The cabin is put together with an atmosphere of luxury all around. The Accord is equipped with an endless list of features such as remote start with pre-cooling or heating the car with the key, 7-inch touch screen audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rain sensing wipers, dual-zone climate control, blindspot monitoring system (LaneWatch), electronic sunroof and the list just goes on and on. The instrument cluster looks quite futuristic too. The seats are comfortable and there is decent space in the boot, inspite of the batteries eating up some amount of boot space. The Accord comes with run-flat tyres and Honda is not offering a spare. However, there is a puncture repair kit in the boot.

Honda Accord Transmission

The all-new Honda Accord Hybrid derives its power from the Sport Hybrid Intelligent Multi Mode Drive hybrid system, which features a 2.0 L 4-cylinder DOHC i-VTEC petrol engine and 2 electric motors. The electric motors are powered by a 1.3 kWh Lithium-Ion battery. The total power output is 211 bhp, out of which the petrol mill generates 145 bhp. The engine is linked to an e-CVT automatic transmission, which transmits the power to the front wheels. Honda Accord Hybrid offers three driving modes: EV, Hybrid and Engine. In the EV Mode, the power is provided by the electric motors as they draw it from the Lithium-ion battery. For more info on Honda Accord check Resultmag

In the Hybrid mode, the petrol engine powers the generator motor, which then provides energy to the driving motor. In case of the Engine mode, the petrol motor powers the wheels directly. Besides the aforementioned three driving modes, two additional driving modes, Sport and Economy, can be activated by pressing the buttons on the centre console. The hybrid sedan is being hailed as the most refined and fuel-efficient hybrid model in its segment.

Honda Accord Hybrid mileage reaches an impressive figure of 23.1 kmpl (ARAI specified), which makes it the most fuel efficient hybrid sedan in the segment.

Honda Accord Riding

Power delivery is quite linear. There is a bit of lag once you floor the pedal, but after this the Accord pulls smoothly to the redline. NVH levels are excellent and you can barely hear the engine (in the Engine mode). When the car is running only on the batteries, it is eerily quiet. The Accord automatically decides on the driving mode based on the conditions such as speed and the charge status of the battery. Ride quality is excellent at both low and high speeds. We particularly liked the slow speed ride as the suspension soaks most the surface irregularities on the tarmac. Since most buyers will be chauffeured around, the rear ride is important and is quite comfortable. The steering offers decent amount of feedback and weighs up well as the speeds pick up. Brakes offer good bite and the car stops without any drama. The tyres offer good levels of grip.

Honda Accord Safety

The Honda Accord Hybrid sedan gets ventilated disc brakes at the front wheels, while solid discs do the duty at the rear wheels. In terms of safety, Honda Accord Hybrid specifications have gone a level ahead, and some never-seen-before features have been introduced in the form of ‘LaneWatch’ Blind Spot Monitoring System, Multi-angle Rear View Camera and Active Cornering Lights.

In addition, the sedan also comes with an array of safety features, such as 6 airbags, 3-point seatbelt for each seat, front seatbelts with pre-tensioner and load limiter, Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS), Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control, Brake Assist, and Hill Start Assist (HSA) as standard.

Honda Accord Price in Hyderabad

Honda Accord On Road Price is 52,02,816/- and Ex-showroom Price is 43,53,104/- in Hyderabad. Honda Accord comes in 4 colours, namely Lunar Silver Metallic,Modern Steel Metallic,Crystal Black Pearl,White Orchid Pearl. Honda Accord comes with FWD with 1993 CC Displacement and 4 Cylinders with Maximum Power 181 bhp@5000-6000 rpm and Peak Torque 315 Nm@2000 rpm DRIVE TRAIN FWD and reaches 100 KMPH at Electric Power Steering . Honda Accord comes with Manual Transmission with FWD .Check for Accord price in Hyderabad at Tryaldrive.

Honda Accord Final Thought

Undoubtedly, Honda Accord Hybrid is one of the prettiest cars in its segment, but it has been priced absolutely bizarrely. In the same segment, Toyota Camry is nearly Rs. 6 Lakh cheaper than the Accord Hybrid. Honda needs to contemplate local production to bring down the Honda Accord Hybrid price and remain in the competition.
