Another benefit is that lasers do not produce any side effects, and they are perfect for almost any area of the body.
The Process of Laser Hair Removal
The process of laser hair removal works by using a highly concentrated beam of light that pulsates into the hair follicles. The pulses of light attack the root of the hair, preventing it from growing back. Because hair grows in three phases, it is important to schedule multiple sessions to capture all of the hairs in each phase. You may only need one treatment if you have fair or light skin. If you have darker skin, you will need a series of treatments to order to remove all hairs. Schedule an free consultation with us today and we’ll create a customized treatment plan to fit your needs and goals.
Before laser hair removal, you should be sure that the hair follicle is long enough to absorb the energy. Avoid waxing for more than six weeks. And be careful not to tan or suntan, as tanning may cause pigmentation issues in areas treated with a laser. Avoid using waxes on the treated area prior to your appointment as they can disperse the laser.
There are some precautions you should take prior to laser hair removal. You should avoid wearing cosmetics or using hair-care products on the areas scheduled for treatment on the day of your appointment . The zapping sensation caused by the laser will be similar to the snapping of a rubber band against your skin. A few weeks after undergoing your first session, you can expect to see some regrowth of hair on your legs.
Every patient of ours is different, and several treatments might needed to completely remove hair. Small areas can be treated in a single session, while larger areas may require several sessions. Afterward, you should be prepared for some redness and swelling. You should not go in the sun if you have any of these side effects. If you have any side effects, you should consult with your doctor immediately. Ice can also be used to reduce pain after laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is quick and relatively painless. You don’t need to worry about missing any spots. The only downtime you will experience is a short period of time. In fact, you can schedule a laser hair removal treatment over lunch. It takes about 15 minutes and leaves you with beautiful, smooth skin.
If you’ve had laser hair removal, you may be wondering how often it should be repeated. The time it takes between treatments depends on your hair’s growth phase and your skin tone. Our experienced staff will discuss your needs and formulate a plan to reach your goals in your initial consultation.
