Laser Hair Removal
Breakthrough laser technology can get rid of unwanted hair quickly, easily, and with proven long term results. Laser hair removal can be used almost anywhere there is unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal will work on almost any part of the body, from your legs, arms, and upper lips, chin, neck, face, to even your back or shoulders, practically anywhere.
Since the laser can treat lots of hair follicles at once you get much quicker (and more permanent) results than other temporary fixes.
In fact, Laser Hair Removal is perhaps the greatest hair removal breakthrough in the last 50 years.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser Hair Removal uses a low-energy laser to gently remove unwanted hair, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing. This advanced technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long-lasting results. Because the laser treats more than one hair at a time, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face.
Laser treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier. Best of all, laser hair removal treatments are a safe, fast, gentle and effective alternative method for hair removal.
The laser slows the growing capacity of follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Treatment results will vary from patient to patient depending on skin and hair color.
Removing hair does not make it grow back thicker, darker, or more rapidly, though it often seems that way. This is because hair removal attempts often begin at a time (such as puberty) when the hairs coming in are getting larger and thicker anyway. So when they come back after plucking, etc., they come back larger; but they would have come back larger during the next growth cycle for that particular hair anyway. The laser may cause hair to come back slower and thinner.
What areas can be treated?
Laser Hair Removal is good for both facial hair removal and for body hair removal. Specific body sites include the upper lip, underarms, legs, back, shoulders, chin, cheeks and other facial areas for women. Laser Hair Removal can be used almost anywhere that's covered with unwanted hair.
Perhaps the most commonly treated areas are facial hair in women. This may be because facial hair is so obvious and so troublesome for those who have it. It can also take a lot of time, on a very frequent basis, to get rid of facial hair by plucking. The chin and the upper lip are the most commonly treated.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Not really. As compared to the pain from waxing or electrolysis most patients say their laser treatment was relatively pain-free. Many patients describe the treatment as tingling or a slight snapping sensation.
Usually, the majority of patients can easily tolerate this sensation without any type of anesthetics. However, you may elect to use a topical numbing cream before your procedure.
If you do feel any discomfort it's only while the area is being treated. Then after the procedure the area treated may become pink or red (like mild sunburn) for a day or so.
Also, after leaving the office you will not need any bandage because there is no damage to your skin.
