When it comes to hair removal, most people are interested in long-term solutions. Laser hair removal provides just what you want. This hair removal treatment works by targeting and destroying hair follicles with concentrated laser light. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light and transfers it to heat, which then destroys the follicle. Multiple treatments are necessary because it takes time for the hair to grow back.
There are many benefits that laser hair removal offer:
Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair without harming the surrounding skin. This makes laser hair removal a minimally invasive procedure. Some people experience some redness after treatment, but that’s usually gone after a few hours.
Compared to waxing or shaving, laser hair removal only requires a few treatments to eliminate hair completely.
Laser hair removal is a quick procedure. In fact, in some cases, laser hair removal can take less than an hour in our office.
Laser hair removal requires little to no recovery time. After your treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away. You may notice some redness and swelling, but it should quickly subside. Keep in mind that you will be more sensitive to the sun’s rays, so apply sunscreen liberally after treatment.
Laser hair removal requires a series of treatments to achieve the best results. This is because hair grows in cycles, and the laser is only capable of treating hair in its active growth phase. Most patients see results in as little as one treatment, but some patients may need more treatments.
It’s important to understand that certain factors, such as hormones, can affect the growth of hair, and some patients may require maintenance treatments from time to time.
Laser hair removal causes less discomfort than other treatments, such as waxing. With laser hair removal, there’s no need for constant maintenance and upkeep. There’s no risk of burns or irritation because the laser’s energy is completely absorbed by your hair follicles.
Laser hair removal doesn’t require numbing cream. Since topical anesthetics aren’t necessary, the procedure is more comfortable.
Plus, laser hair removal doesn’t expose you to any of the chemicals you’d find in an over-the-counter or prescription numbing cream.
Laser hair removal is quick, easy, and suitable for both men and women. If you have any questions regarding this treatment option or any other questions about skincare, feel free to reach out to us.
