If you find waxing, shaving, or tweezing cumbersome, laser hair removal is the answer. It is a medical procedure that uses laser energy to destroy the hair follicle.
The laser light emits heat that destroys the hair follicles. Hair follicles are tube-shaped sacs in your skin that produce hair. Laser treatment is ideal for removing hair in many parts of the body. These areas include your bikini line, face, legs, arms, armpits, and others.
Ensure that you confirm the credentials of the doctor or technician who will be performing the procedure. Avoid electrolysis, waxing, plucking, and direct sun exposure a few weeks before undergoing the procedure.
Some of the benefits of laser hair removal include:
Faster and Less Painful
Laser hair removal is the fastest solution to getting rid of hair in places you do not want. The number of sessions needed will depend upon the area being treated. The procedure is much less painful than other methods, making it more comfortable and less time-consuming.
Less Body Odor
Body odor results from bacteria that grow in areas of your body with high hair density. Laser hair removal in such areas of the body leads to less body odor, boosting your self-confidence.
Evade Ingrown Hairs
Ingrown hairs can be a result of shaving, waxing, or epilating. They are painful and often can leave skin with hyperpigmentation. In addition to this, you can avoid razor cuts or burns from wax. Laser hair removal sessions can eliminate ingrown hairs.
Longer Lasting Results
Laser hair removal treatments will result in permanent hair reduction. It is important to stick to your provider’s recommended schedule of treatments. Hair grows in 30-day cycles, so it is important to have treatment twice for each cycle for optimal results. Laser hair removal is ideal for people with abnormal hair growth. The condition may be hereditary or a result of hormonal imbalance and is also advisable for people with polycystic ovary syndrome.
The condition causes the growth of hair in unusual areas of the body. They include the chin and neck in women and the back and chest in men. Laser treatment is ideal since other hair removal methods may be exhausting and expensive.
Laser hair removal ensures that you do not need to spend money on razors, shaving creams, wax treatments, regular visits to your barber, or other methods of hair removal.
Due to advanced technology, we use a device that has a skin melanin reader which will tell us if you have increased pigment for each session. This will ensure safe, effective treatments with no blistering.
