It is not often that you pause during the middle of a movie during a close-up scene and think to yourself, “Gee, I don’t see any nose hairs or ear hair sticking out of that person. I wonder how they did it?” You never think of it because the lack of something doesn’t draw attention to itself. But you can bet your last dollar that the people in those scenes thought about it. Their appearance is what earns them the big bucks, so you better believe they take good care of themselves.
That’s why top singers and movie stars so often come across as narcissistic and self-involved. They have to constantly focus on themselves and their image if they want to work in their field. When Miley Cyrus releases a new song, she has to be hyper-aware of her looks because her picture is going to be splashed across the cover of her album, and from there across millions of social media screens all around the world.
The Big Screen
On the big screen, and increasingly, the little screen on your smartphone, the slightest blemish or imperfection will stand out like a sore thumb. The smaller the imperfection, the harder it is to spot until it’s too late, and the faster it will be spotted by sharp-eyed fans and critiques when it becomes visible during a close-up scene.
Cameras don’t “see” the same way the human eye does. They magnify everything, including the tiniest defect or hair that is out of place. There is a good reason for the old saying, “The camera lens is unforgiving,” because it is.
Close-Ups In Your Life
Movie stars aren’t the only ones who have close-ups to deal with. Every first date is a close-up you don’t want to flunk just in case that person turns out to be “the one.” Why take a chance on blowing it just because you have some unsightly hairs that keep growing back in the wrong places?
Every job interview is a close-up of a different kind too. Every first meeting with every person is a close-up. It has often been said that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. That is absolutely true, and those first impressions – rightly or wrongly – will stay with the other person for a long time, sometimes for years. It’s not fair, but that’s the way it is.
Fortunately for your peace of mind, the Ethos Spa Skin & Laser Center in New Jersey has just the right answer for you; laser hair removal.
Season three of the Netflix original series, Stranger Things, is scheduled to come out the first week of July and you can bet your life they took care to make sure everything about each and every person in the cast was perfect. If someone looks like a geek, it’s because they’re supposed to look like a geek. If someone is supposed to look like a heartthrob, it’s guaranteed they’ve gone through all kinds of treatments, workouts, and hair removal to make them look like you want to wrap them up and take them home.
Shaving is too hit-and-miss for the television or movie cameras. Five o’clock shadow can show up at the most inconvenient time, costing the production company thousands of dollars of downtime while the whole crew stands around waiting for the star to shave that tiny bit of fuzz. It’s cheaper to get it done by a professional so that it will stay gone for months at a time.
Laser Hair Removal Results
Laser hair removal takes a longer time to achieve results than waxing or plucking but those results will last considerably longer too, up to six or eight months at a time, with only an annual touch-up needed in the areas where the hair starts to reappear. It’s also less painful than waxing and plucking.
There is no such thing as completely painless or permanent hair removal, but laser hair removal comes closer than anything else that has ever been invented. The results are cleaner, smoother, and less irritating than shaving, plucking, or waxing.
Laser hair removal takes several sessions, about four weeks apart to achieve the hairless look you want, and costs anywhere from $250 to $900 depending on the size of the area you’re having treated but the end results are well worth it.
You’ll have over six months to eight months of shave-free and hair-free enjoyment ahead of you without having to worry about five o’clock shadow or anything else.
