Getting rid of unwanted hair by shaving, plucking, waxing and electrolysis is very time-consuming and can be highly uncomfortable. In order to have smooth skin, removing unwanted hair needs to be done at least once a week and in some cases, every day. Laser hair removal solves all of the above problems and can leave your skin smooth and hair-free for months.
There are several different types of lasers that can be used for hair removal, but they all 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 the optimum results. The procedure is quick. The laser can target one hair, which is beneficial for removing hair on the chin or upper lip, or it can target an area about the size of a quarter for large areas, such as the legs, back and chest.
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. The main reason is so that all of the treatments can be finished before the warm weather comes when they want to wear bathing suits and shorts.
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.
