It’s hard to get people to agree on anything these days, but there’s one thing that most women would undoubtedly agree on: Removing unwanted hair is extremely tedious and time-consuming. Fortunately, a safe, convenient treatment exists that can permanently unshackle you from the need to constantly pluck, wax, or shave to remove unwanted hair from places like your face, underarms, legs, and bikini area. Laser hair removal is that treatment.
Laser Hair Removal
Gone are the days when you need to waste time removing unwanted hair, only to have it spring back up again. Laser hair removal involves the use of a cosmetic laser that targets hair follicles with focused light energy. The melanin in your hair will absorb this thermal energy, destroying the hair follicle and its ability to grow hair in the treatment area. Patients achieve permanent hair removal after several laser treatments.
You may make a good candidate for laser hair removal if you have hair growing that you would like permanently removed. It also helps to maintain realistic expectations in terms of what this treatment can accomplish.
Multiple Treatments for the Permanent Removal of Unwanted Hair
Patients who undergo around seven laser hair removal procedures should obtain permanent removal of their unwanted hair. The reason multiple sessions are required lies in how individual hairs grow in certain phases. One hair may happen to be in a growth phase while another is in a dormant phase, which means that there is no hair present for the laser to target. Spacing out your treatments allows us to treat each hair when it happens to be in a growth phase with a growing hair for the laser to accurately target.
Before and After Your Procedure
There are a few ways that you can ensure that you obtain the best results possible from your laser hair removal procedure. You should avoid prolonged sun exposure for a period both before and after your treatment so the procedure can have its full effects, and you will not experience any post-procedure complications. You should also avoid wearing sunscreen prior to your procedure. Inform us of your complete medical history including any medications or supplements that you may be taking.
