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 months to years, depending on the individual receiving the treatment. After several sessions, you will experience phenomenal results.
It takes several sessions, as hair removal has to be done gradually and not all in one session. 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.
The laser equipment is adjusted to suit your specifications, such as hair color, thickness, location as well as the color of your skin. A cooling gel is applied before the treatment begins. Once done, you will be given either ice packs or soothing creams or lotions to soothe the treated area.
Depending on which area you are having done, a single session can take up to about 20 minutes to one hour.
The 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.
