If you are tired of shaving, tweezing or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal can be a great option. Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure in the United States. Highly concentrated light is beamed into hair follicles. The intense heat from the laser damages the follicle and prevents future growth.
Here are the biggest reasons why laser removal is gaining popularity quickly.
Laser removal is done to remove unwanted hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line and other areas of the body.
Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Every second, skin area, the size of a quarter can be treated. Smaller areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, can be treated in an hour.
Although laser removal only slows hair growth, most people experience permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions. Some people may require many sessions for extended hair-free intervals.
A lifetime of shaving, waxing and depilatory products and services will certainly cost much more than a few hair removal sessions at a good clinic, such as Live Skin Health in Phoenix. At the same time, once you are doe with laser hair removal, there are no hassles of regularly removing unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that requires skill and experience. Before going for laser hair removal, find out who is going to perform the treatment. Go ahead only if you are satisfied with their credentials.
You have to limit any other hair removal methods at least six weeks before treatment. That’s because laser removal method targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. Sun exposure is to be avoided for six weeks before and after treatment. Exposure to the Sun can lower the effectiveness of the laser removal treatment. It also makes complications after laser treatment more likely.
Just before the laser procedure, that will be treated, will be trimmed. The laser removal equipment will be adjusted according to your skin’s color, thickness and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
