I've got the reply that I can go eilation of my chest and back hair. Can I go with braun se7891? will my thick hair become coarser? Or any suggestions pls

Test area first.: My best advise it that you try it in a small inconspicuous area of your body for about 3 months, and see what happens to your hair when it regrows, after repeated depilation. If you are happy with the results, then you can do it on the entire area.
I don't really have any experience with that devise, and can't tell you if your hair will become coarser.
The test can. ...Read more

Ask your aesthetician if another technique for hair removal would be better. Also, laser removal or electrolysis may be other options. Discuss with your dermatologist first so your skin type can be examined.Red spots indicate irritation or inflammation to the product ...Read more

I found an alchol (softa-man by b braun) that claims it's anti-hiv. What does that mean? I know you cant spread it through non sexual contact.

I found an alchol (softa-man by b braun) that claims it's anti-hiv. What does that mean? I know you cant spread it through non sexual contact.

Misleading claim: All common alcohols kill HIV on contact, and probably soap and water do a pretty good job also. Nothing you drink will protect you. I know you're smart enough not to believe everything you read, especialyl on patent medicine bottles. 'Softa-man' is actually just a hand-wash and will do the same as any other good wash. And you don't get HIV from dirty hands. ...Read more
