Although it has been proven that cosmetic treatments can help people feel more confident and happier with their appearance, cosmetic procedures are rarely seen as beneficial medical practices.

We all have that one region of our body that we are not satisfied with, that we wish cosmetic intervention could come in and quickly fix. Hair loss and inadequate growth affects millions of people, and can be viewed as a downright curse by those who “suffer” from it. Are your eyelashes on the thin side? For most women more so than men, insufficient eyelash volume is a dreaded problem, and thus one that has seen the rise of an entire cosmetic industry dedicated to hair restoration products and services for this specific region of the body.

Not everyone is born with these natural, etched-in-skin designs, and no one has yet to determine their cause. Whatever the reason, these marks are found in areas where there is a high concentration of blood vessels. While completely harmless and very rarely the source of pain, some wearers perceive them as an unattractive burden. They can be found on any region of the body, so sometimes this means in conspicuous places such as the face, arms, stomach, or back. For people whose birthmarks are located on their scalp, the only time they would ever need to worry is when balding. Fortunately for those uncomfortable with their beauty marks, a few methods exist for removing your birthmark…
