What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a common and popular cosmetic treatment that permanently reduces unwanted body hair. The results may last for more than a year, and if any hair does grow back, it will be weak and pale and can be removed with a maintenance treatment. The laser light beam is directed at the hair follicle and destroys it with heat.
There are many benefits to laser hair removal, starting with the fact that it can be done almost anywhere on your body except around the eyes. Areas such as the upper lip, chin, underarms, arms and legs, back, chest and bikini line are all suitable for this treatment.
With this popular treatment, shaving becomes a thing of the past. You no longer need to shave, pluck or wax almost every day of the week to keep your skin free of unwanted hair. Once your hair is removed with a laser treatment, you can count on months or even more than a year of smooth skin.
Laser hair removal is very effective and safe. It has been used for more than 20 years as a safe and proven way to remove hair. You can learn more about it when you talk to our specialists and trained technicians.
This treatment is very quick. A few hairs on your upper lip or chin may take just a few minutes to treat. Larger areas such as the legs, back and chest will take longer, but in many cases treatments take less than an hour.
When you add up all the hours you spend shaving, plucking and sitting in salons to become hair-free, it constitutes a big part of your daily life. Laser hair removal is the solution that not only gets rid of hair and leaves your skin smooth, but it also gives back the long hours you formerly spent removing hair.
The side effects of shaving, including nicks, cuts and ingrown hairs are also a thing of the past. You will no longer worry about scars on your legs and painful ingrown hairs that run the risk of becoming infected.
With waxing, you need to wait until the hair is fully grown back before you can remove it again. Laser hair removal can be done on shaved hair because shaving does not affect the follicle. If you need a maintenance treatment but don’t have time, you can shave and still have your treatment when you are ready. It usually takes multiple treatments to remove all the hair, since the treatment is only effective during the growth stage of the hair cycle.
If you decide that laser hair removal is right for you after talking with our expert, there are some things you should do to prepare. At least six weeks before the treatment date, you should not wax, pluck or undergo any treatment that removes the hair follicle. During your initial consultation, we will let you know in more detail how you can prepare for your treatment session.
