Laser hair removal is the answer to all the time you waste waxing, plucking, and shaving. As one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S., laser hair removal stands as the tried and true solution to making your daily “getting ready” regimen simpler.
The Benefits Are Clear
Laser hair removal beams a highly concentrated light to rid your body of hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles will absorb the light, destroying the hair. Laser hair treatments can get rid of hair on your arms, legs, face, chin, bikini line, and other areas.
Laser Hair removal is incredibly precise. The laser can specifically target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. Treatments are quick and simple. With each pulse of the laser, many hairs can be treated simultaneously. For instance, a laser can treat an area the size of a quarter every single second. If you have a few hairs you want to be removed from your chin, it can be done in minutes. Larger areas like your back can take up to an hour. Laser hair therapy is a tried and true predictable method for long-term hair removal. Most patients experience permanent hair loss after three to seven laser hair removal sessions.
How You Should Prepare
Since laser hair removal is a medical treatment, be sure to confirm the credentials and experience of the doctor or technician doing the procedure. Six weeks before you have a laser hair treatment limit the amount of waxing, plucking, and electrolysis you do. For laser hair removal to work effectively, the hair root needs to be intact. You also need to avoid extensive sun exposure for six weeks before and after your treatment. This will help diminish the risk of complications.
