Laser Hair Removal: What To Expect
Thinking about laser hair removal?
Here are some facts for you to know before you receive your first laser hair removal treatment.
First things first…What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal uses a laser of light that gets absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in your hair. This damages the hair shaft and follicle without harming the surrounding tissue. The most common areas that are treated for women include upper lip, chin, armpits, bikini line and legs. The chest and back are popular for men.
Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?
Everyone is a candidate for Laser Hair Removal at Laser Esthetica. Because of the way the lasers operate, the ideal candidate is a patient with light skin and coarse, dark hair. However, due to recent developments in technology, we can still achieve great results in patients with darker skin. For these patients, we use the most advanced, specialized lasers. At Laser Esthetica, we make sure to carry an array of different, high-quality lasers to ensure that all our patients of all skin types are as comfortable as possible.
Why would you get laser hair removal?
There are lots of reasons that one may decide to get laser hair removal.
Perhaps you’re a busy mom, and while taking a long shower is a luxury, you may not have time to shave your legs as often as you’d like.
Maybe you have been struggling with stubborn hairs on your face you have been trying to get rid of for ages.
You’re a man who dislikes the hair on your back, but it’s so difficult to reach to shave…and very painful to get waxed.
If any of the above scenarios sounds scarily close to your reality, laser hair removal might be for you.
How long does laser hair removal last?
After six to eight treatments, you can expect a marked reduction in hair. And it’s possible that you will never see those stubborn hairs ever again.
