Getting rid of unwanted hair by shaving, plucking, waxing, and electrolysis can be time-consuming and uncomfortable. Additionally, depending on your preferences, removing unwanted hair may need to be done every week or every day. Laser hair removal can reduce the discomfort of other hair removal procedures, saves you time, and leaves your skin smooth and hair-free for months. A win-win in our book!
There are several different types of lasers that can be used for hair removal, such as Forever Bare BBL. However, each laser removal treatment works the same - they target the follicle with light waves that turn into heat when they encounter the pigment in the hair. They damage the follicle so that it cannot continue to grow hair. Laser hair removal does not promise permanent hair removal, but it does promise long-lasting hair reduction, and if any hair does regrow, it will be weak and pale.
Hair has several growing stages, and laser hair removal is only effective during the growth stage. This is the main reason you will need a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. The procedure is quick and relatively painless. Depending on the area, the sensation is similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin.
During a consultation with our specialist, you can learn more about laser hair removal and how it can benefit you. It is useful for removing the hair on the face, legs, arms, underarms, and bikini line. If you plan to have the procedure, you may be asked not to pluck or wax for six weeks before the treatment. However, you may shave because shaving does not affect the follicles.
Some people schedule laser hair removal treatments during the winter. This timing allows our patients to flaunt their smooth, hairless skin the moment the weather turns warm - or during a spring break trip to hotter climates!
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair. Your skin can remain smooth and hair-free for months, and if a little hair starts to grow back, you can simply return to our office for a maintenance treatment. You will get the great benefit of not worrying about unwanted hair all summer long.
