It seems like everyone spends a lot of money, time, and energy on removing unwanted hair. Whether you are someone who shaves or waxes, there are costs associated that can really add up. Plus, the results do not last nearly as long as you’d like. This is where laser hair removal can save the day. There are very few risks but very real results with this procedure. No wonder it is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the United States!
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
This simple and effective procedure involves sending a concentrated beam of light directly at the unwanted hairs. The pigment in your hair, called melanin, absorbs the light and converts it into heat. This heat damages the hair follicle, making hair growth much harder.
One treatment is often not enough to get to your desired results. At your consultation, we can discuss the best treatment plan for you. It is also important to know that the hairs do not fall out immediately after treatment, but rather are shed in the following days.
Once you have reached your desired results, you will notice a significant reduction in hair growth. A maintenance treatment every once in a while can help keep your skin looking and feeling smooth. Even when some hair does grow back, it is usually both thinner and lighter in color.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
There are many reasons that this is such a popular cosmetic procedure. Some of the benefits include:
- It is quick, taking anywhere from minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated
- This treatment will not give you ingrown hairs as some others will
- The treatment is precise and will not damage any of your surrounding skin
