Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal
A non-invasive and relatively painless way to remove hair and reduce re-growth on a long-term basis, it is no wonder Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic procedures in America. Both women and men turn to laser hair removal as a lasting solution to getting rid of unwanted hair. The treatment delivers fast on hair removal and contributes towards permanently reducing hair growth over time. As it is relatively painless it is perfect for sensitive areas such as underarms and the bikini area, as well. It is also ideal for large areas such as the legs, arms, full chest and stomach.
Experiencing long-term hair removal without the hassle of waxing, plucking, messy depilatory creams or the discomfort of shaving, is like a dream come true. If you always imagined of not having to deal with stubble or ingrown hair, then your dream becomes a reality with laser hair removal. Most people enjoy permanent hair loss after an average of six to seven sessions.
How Does It Work?
A concentrated beam of laser light which converts to heat, is aimed at the hair. The heat is absorbed by the pigments or melanin in the follicle. This heat aimed at the follicle inhibits future hair growth for results that can last up to several month to years, depending on the individual receiving the treatment. After several sessions, you will experience phenomenal results. It takes several sessions, as hair growth happens according to a cycle, by going for treatment every four to six weeks, you will be able to target most of the follicles over a period of time, giving the dead hair shafts time to fall out of their own accord.
Best Time For Treatment
It is best to start treatments a few months prior to when you want to experience complete reduction in hair growth. For instance, in preparation for summer most treatments start at the end of winter. Unlike for waxing, you do not have to be totally hairy for treatment. Ideally, for best results, you should shave the treatment area the day before.
However, you cannot have treatment if you have waxed recently, as the laser targets the pigment of your hair follicle. If you wax, then the follicle will not be there, making the laser treatment redundant. Further, avoid unnecessary sun exposure and tanning as it affects the results of the laser treatment.
What Must I Do After Laser?
To avoid possible side effects, all patients need to protect their skin from the sun. After laser hair removal, you should:
Avoid direct sunlight from hitting your treated skin.
Not use a tanning bed, sun lamp, or any other indoor tanning equipment.
Follow your provider after-care instructions.
You will see some redness and swelling after treatment. This often looks like a mild sunburn. Applying a cool compress can help reduce your discomfort.
HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS?
Why Laser Hair Removal Is the Best Method?
It Can Get Rid Of Rajor Bumps
Razor bumps are small bumps or inflammation that appear on your skin after shaving, especially when ingrown hairs grow into the skin rather than outward. Shaving in the wrong direction, pulling the skin when shaving, shaving too close to the skin, and not replacing the shaving blade on a regular basis are all common causes of this condition. Laser Hair Removal is the best razor bump treatment because it uses light beams to destroy hair follicles, reduces the chances of developing those painful bumps and pustules.
It Prevent Ingrown Hair
Hair is removed at a deeper level with laser-assisted hair removal than with shaving, waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis. Ingrown hairs, which are frequently associated with shaving and waxing, are no longer a problem after laser hair removal.
It Can Alleviate Skin Problems
Laser Hair Removal can alleviate skin problems associated with hair growth like folliculitis and discoloration, and it can also reduce pigmentation problems associated with unwanted hair.
