Unwanted hair can make you feel uncomfortable and less confident in your skin. Although many hair removal methods are effective, some require more work than others.
Shaving demands constant upkeep to keep your skin feeling smooth and comes with the risk of ingrown hairs, accidental cuts, and razor burn. Waxing will keep your skin smoother for longer, but the experience can be uncomfortable and doesn’t slow hair regrowth.
For patients looking for long-lasting results, we recommend investing in our laser hair removal treatment. This advanced treatment is designed to slow hair growth by targeting the follicles, giving you amazing results without the need for downtime or upkeep.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment designed to reduce hair growth. The treatment is so versatile it can be used to remove unwanted hair on many parts of the body, including your:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
The laser used in this procedure can be calibrated to target different areas of the body, as well as different hair and skin types, to safely and effectively slow hair growth.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal uses a laser to deliver light energy to your skin. Melanin, the natural pigment in your hair, then absorbs this light and converts the energy to heat. The heat damages your hair follicles, which slows the rate of hair regrowth.
Your laser hair removal results will last much longer than other hair removal treatments, so you can enjoy softer, smoother skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Anyone looking for a long-term solution for hair growth can benefit from a laser hair removal treatment. Unlike other skin treatments, laser hair removal is safe for all skin types. This gentle yet effective treatment doesn’t require any downtime, so you don’t have to worry about your laser hair removal disrupting your life.
What Can I Expect from a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
During your consultation, we’ll discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions. Once we have determined you’re a good candidate for the procedure, we’ll outline your treatment plan and go over important pre- and post-procedure care and information.
To maximize the effectiveness of your laser hair removal treatment, it’s important that you come in with healthy skin. Starting a month before your first session, we recommend you avoid shaving, plucking, waxing, and electrolysis.
Avoiding unnecessary sun exposure and any kind of sunburn will keep your skin from becoming overly sensitive to the procedure.
During the procedure, we will slowly guide the laser over your skin to heat your hair follicles. As the laser penetrates your skin, you may feel a sensation similar to that of a rubber band snapping. The procedure is well tolerated by many patients, and we will make sure you’re comfortable throughout your laser hair removal treatment.
Your laser hair removal treatment does not require any downtime, so you can immediately return to your daily activities after your treatment is complete.
Your next laser hair removal session will not be scheduled until a couple of months after your initial treatment. During this time, we recommend avoiding unnecessary sun exposure and wearing daily SPF to protect your skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need to See Results?
Your laser hair removal results will depend on your aesthetic goals and how they compare to the amount of hair you currently have, as well as its color and coarseness. Generally, a series of treatments is required to achieve optimal results.
For most patients, we recommend a series of six to eight treatments. These treatments will be performed eight to ten weeks apart to maximize your comfort and the effectiveness of the treatment.
During your consultation, we will evaluate your specific skin and hair type and design a specialized treatment plan just for you.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal has become increasingly popular due to its many benefits.
Quick and Comfortable
Although your treatment plan will likely require several sessions, each individual laser hair removal appointment only takes a matter of minutes. Unlike waxing and shaving, which can irritate your skin, laser hair removal leaves your skin undisturbed.
Precise and Versatile
The laser can be safely used on many different areas of the body. The technology makes it easy to target specific areas of hair growth, so you can get rid of those unruly hairs even in difficult-to-reach places.
Prevents Ingrown Hairs
Ingrown hairs are those red, itchy bumps that sometimes occur after shaving or waxing. Because laser hair removal targets your hair follicles, it actually stops your hair from growing back in, eliminating the potential for ingrown hairs.
Laser hair removal allows patients to enjoy smooth, hair-free skin for years. Although you may need additional upkeep sessions to maintain your laser hair removal results, many patients still see a significant reduction in their hair growth, which makes upkeep virtually effortless.
