Very few people like to shave. For most people, shaving is a nightmarish part of their personal hygiene routine. Whether it’s shaving hair off your face, under your arms, off your legs or off your back, shaving is frustrating, time-consuming and sometimes even uncomfortable. What’s worse is that the more you shave, the faster the hair grows back. And when the hair grows back, it’s often thicker, it often irritates your skin and it can leave you with razor bumps that are worse than the hair you were trying to remove in the first place. If you’re ready to say goodbye to your razor, laser hair removal may be right for you.
Why Should I Use Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an excellent way to achieve long-term hair reduction. In some instances, laser hair removal can lead to permanent hair removal or reduction. As opposed to other treatments like electrolysis, this method of hair removal is fast. It allows you to remove hair from an area the size of a quarter in just a few seconds. With just a few treatment sessions, typically between three to five, you will be able to remove the unwanted hair that has been bothering you for years.
The results produced by manual forms of hair removal, be them waxing, creams or shaving, only leave you with temporary results. In some instances, the hair that you removed is back within less than a day. The next day you find yourself going through the same hair removal process, only this time with the added headache of battling with ingrown hairs.
How Are Lasers Able to Remove My Hair?
The device used in the hair removal process creates a wavelength of light that is specifically calibrated to be absorbed by the pigmentation in your hair. As a result, this light is turned into energy in the form of heat that travels down the hair into the follicle, damaging and disabling it. All of this is done without damaging the skin around the area that is being treated. Once the follicle is disabled, it can no longer grow hair.
Laser hair removal is very versatile. It can be used on just about every part of your body. During your consultation, we can help you learn more about the areas that you can treat with laser hair removal.
