Let's be honest. Shaving, waxing, tweezing, and bleaching is tedious and time-consuming. The good news is there is a solution. With laser hair removal, you can get rid of unwanted hair on your face and body without the time or hassle. It's a safe, non-invasive treatment that's certainly worth considering. Here's everything you need to know about laser hair removal.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Put simply, laser hair removal uses a laser to generate highly concentrated light energy that penetrates deeply into the skin to deliver heat. The pigments in your hair follicles absorb the light energy and get destroyed without any effect on the surrounding skin.
With each treatment, you can expect a 15% to 30% reduction in hair loss. Laser hair removal can be performed on the face, legs, arms, back, chest, bikini line, and any other body part with hair.
What Happens During Laser Hair Removal?
During a treatment, an expert provider will glide the laser on top of your skin in the area with hair. The hair follicles will then absorb the laser's heat and get damaged, making it difficult for the hair to come back. You can expect a slight pinching sensation and don't have to worry about any pain. Oftentimes, patients enjoy optimal results in 35 to 45-minute sessions spaced out every 6 to 8 weeks. During a consultation, we can recommend the ideal timeline for your unique goals.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
By receiving laser hair removal, you can remove unwanted hair permanently. You'll be able to save time and money because you won't have to shave, wax, pluck, bleach, or resort to any other traditional hair removal techniques. Best of all, laser hair removal comes with little pain and no downtime. You can resume work and your daily responsibilities right away.
Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal
If you're looking for an alternative to shaving, plucking, and other DIY hair removal methods, laser hair removal may be the ultimate solution. This is particularly true if your hair is darker than your skin.
Laser hair removal is not a good idea if you have overly tan skin or are pregnant, living with diabetes, or have a history of keloids or skin cancer. Also, if your unwanted hair growth is the result of high testosterone levels, we recommend you work with a doctor to get them under control prior to receiving treatment.
