Laser Hair Removal – Smooth Summer Skin without the Hassle

 In Blog, Laser Hair Removal

Summer is here – it’s time to break out the summer clothes and show some skin. For many, that also means constantly shaving or enduring unpleasant waxing appointments. However, smooth summer skin doesn’t have to be such a chore. You can spend less time getting rid of unwanted hair and more time showing off that summer wardrobe with laser hair removal. 

How It Works

During laser hair removal, powerful light energy targets hair follicles, heating and damaging them. This damage to the follicles significantly reduces or completely eliminates their ability to grow new hair. Existing hair can be shaved or waxed away. If any hair should reappear, it will be so tiny and thin that it would be virtually invisible.

The treatments can vary anywhere from a few minutes to a half hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. While patients report experiencing a slight, momentary “snap” during the procedure, there is minimal discomfort with laser hair removal. There may be slight redness or irritation following a treatment which dissipates within a few hours. 

Laser hair removal is effective for all skin types, from very light to very dark skin tones, and most hair colors. Your provider will determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.

 

Multiple treatments are recommended to achieve optimum results. Just how many treatments are necessary will vary for each individual and can be determined by the medical professional or licensed aesthetician providing the treatments. It is a common concern among patients that they will have to let the hair grow in between treatments. You can continue to shave or wax until treatments are complete. At that point, shaving or waxing will no longer be necessary.

Treatment Areas

Laser hair removal can have you virtually hair-free without all the hassle. It is effective on a variety of areas of the body including the back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini line, and legs. It can also be used to remove unwanted facial hair except around the eyes. Protective eyewear must be worn during all laser treatments.

The Benefits

Laser hair removal can be a little more expensive initially than shaving or waxing but will end up saving you both time and money in the long run. Once the treatments are complete you can kiss razors, shaving cream and waxes goodbye! Just think about how much you spend on these products or services each year. 

Another benefit of laser hair removal treatments is it prevents the occurrence of annoying and uncomfortable ingrown hairs.  Because the laser treatments damage the hair follicles, rendering them ineffective, there is no chance of pores getting clogged and causing ingrown hair to develop.

Laser hair removal will significantly reduce the amount of time spent on grooming. Ladies will no longer have to do a quick shave before putting on shorts and guys won’t have to think twice before going shirtless at the beach. Just think – no more unwanted hair peeking out of your bikini or poking out around your muscle tank. Just grab your beach towel and go!

Not only will laser treatments shorten the length of your beauty routine but it will also improve its results. Significantly reducing or eliminating facial unwanted facial hair will allow your makeup to have a smoother look and feel.
