Laser Hair Removal
Have you ever wished that you could have a flawless, smooth, hair-free body at all times? For those who desire to be hairless, there are a few
methods to achieve this: shaving, waxing, or laser hair removal.
Shaving can be time-consuming and even painful, sometimes leading to cuts and unsightly razor burn. While waxing grants clients the freedom of up to three weeks hair-free, the hair then needs to be grown out again for a couple of weeks before you can go in for your next appointment.
The time spent having to grow the hair back out between waxes can be
annoying or too inconvenient for some: plus, it is worth mentioning that waxing can also be very painful.
Which leads us to laser hair removal, the most permanent one of the three hair removal options.
Laser hair removal can be performed on virtually any part of the body, with the most popular being the legs, face, underarms, and bikini line.
An advantage of having laser hair removal done is the precision at which the laser targets the hair – it is able to pinpoint and remove the thickest, coarsest of hair without damaging the surrounding skin at all. On top of this, after your sessions of laser hair removal are over, you will generally get to enjoy your hairless skin for at the shortest, six to twelve months. After this, if the hair follicle targeted was only damaged – not destroyed – it will eventually begin to grow back, and touch-ups will be necessary. If the follicles were successfully destroyed, no hair regrowth would happen.
Therefore no touch-ups will be required.
A disadvantage often associated with laser hair removal is that generally speaking, it is a pretty long process to go through. While the laser can quickly target large body areas, you still need to go back in for multiple sessions before the hair is truly removed. This could prove to be
inconvenient and too time-consuming for some who like to see results quickly.
If you decide that the benefits outweigh the cons when it comes to laser hair removal, the process you will endure is relatively seamless and straightforward.
The hair that is being targeted will be trimmed: and then numbing cream will be applied to the area to help quell any minor stinging or pain the laser could inflict. After that, the process will begin, with the laser beam being adjusted to your unique skin color and also to the thickness and location of the hair being removed.
Then the laser beam will be directed spot by spot to each area that is being treated. Once the treatment is finished, you will generally be given an ice-pack and anti-inflammatory cream to nourish the skin further and help soothe the area.
In short, laser hair removal can have both advantages and disadvantages. Our certified estheticians can help you decide if laser hair removal would be a good option for you. However, it is definitively worth a shot if smooth, hairless skin is what you are seeking.
