Keep reading to learn how laser hair removal could help you unlock permanently smoother skin.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is any cosmetic procedure that eliminates hair growth using laser technology. The most commonly used lasers in laser hair removal devices are the following:
- Ruby laser
- Alexandrite laser
- Nd:YAG laser
- Diode laser
Some laser hair removal devices use combinations of these lasers to disable specific hair follicles.
The skin and hair types in the targeted area determine which laser is the best choice for a particular procedure.
For example, people with fair skin are good candidates for alexandrite laser treatment, while people with darker skin tones are better candidates for Nd:YAG laser treatment. Diode lasers are unique because they are suitable for all skin types.
5 Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal has become a viral cosmetic treatment for both men and women because it’s so effective at what it does. It also comes with several other benefits that make it a worthy investment for anyone wanting to get rid of hair for good. Five of those benefits are detailed below.
1. More Convenient Than Other Hair Removal Methods
Keeping your skin smooth is a lot of work, whether you wax, shave, epilate, or tweeze. And some of these methods come with a considerable amount of discomfort.
Laser hair removal can save you time. The effects last significantly longer, treatment sessions are relatively quick, and there is no work for you to do; we take care of everything.
With laser hair removal, you receive approximately one treatment per month until you’ve achieved your desired results.
2. Precisely Targets Virtually Any Body Part
Where can you get laser hair removal? This treatment is gentle enough to target nearly any body part. We can customize your laser hair removal procedure to target any areas you want, including your:
- Bikini area
Laser hair removal is especially great for treating areas that are hard to reach with a razor or areas that are too sensitive to wax.
3. Provides a Long-Term Solution for Body Hair
Laser hair removal lets you break out of the endless cycle of removing and regrowing hair every few days. Rather than simply cutting the hair flush with your skin like a razor — or temporarily removing the entire hair with waxing — laser hair removal targets the follicles responsible for hair growth.
The dark pigment in hair follicles is called melanin. This pigment absorbs high levels of energy from the laser, which weakens the follicle. Once the hair follicles are sufficiently damaged, they are unable to grow hair again. This makes laser hair removal the only permanent hair removal method.
4. No More Itchy Regrowth or Ingrown Hairs
Smooth skin is nice while it lasts, but itchiness and irritation are almost guaranteed when you shave, wax, epilate, or tweeze.
Laser hair removal eliminates both of these nuisances. Most people find that any hair that grows back after their first few treatment sessions is progressively thinner and sparser and doesn’t cause the same level of irritation.
Best of all, once you achieve your desired results with laser hair removal, ingrown hairs are a thing of the past.
5. No Downtime Is Necessary After Treatment
You might appreciate that laser hair removal doesn’t take away from the rest of your day. After your laser hair removal procedure, you are free to resume your normal activities. There are some minimal aftercare guidelines to follow, but we’ll review them with you before and after your treatment.
