When it comes to grooming away unwanted body hair, you have a wide selection of options from which to choose; shaving, waxing, and plucking can all do the trick. Unfortunately, most of them are not kind to sensitive skin and all come with an ongoing cost of both money and time. If you’re tired of constantly removing excess body hair, it may be time to consider a more permanent solution. Laser hair removal can give you the smooth look you want with a maintenance-free future.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
The laser uses a focused beam of light that has been precisely calibrated to tell the difference between your skin and your hair. The laser heats up only the hair, leaving your skin untouched. The heated hair affects your hair follicles, rendering them unable to produce hair ever.
After multiple treatments, all of the hair follicles on the treatment area will have been affected, leaving you with smooth, hairless skin. The altered hair follicles cannot be seen or felt and do not affect your sweat glands, pigmentation, or any other aspect of your skin.
The Laser Process
Patients need multiple treatments to remove all the hair in a given area. The number of treatments needed depends on several factors, including the hair type, thickness of growth, and the length of the individual’s hair growth cycles.
Treatments are usually short in length. The sensation of laser treatment is often compared to having your skin gently snapped with an elastic band.
Additional Notes About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is effective for both men and women. While most patients want the procedure done on their legs, back, and bikini areas, other popular treatment sites are the neck, arms, chest, underarms, and face.
No healing or downtime is required; however, the treated area should be protected for the first few days after treatment. Our specialist will go over any pre-procedure and aftercare instructions with you.
