Are you sick of the constant hassle of having to pluck, shave, or wax to remove unwanted hair, only to have it come back again and again? Laser hair removal is a treatment that has helped many people remove or reduce unwanted hair so that they can spend time on activities that they actually enjoy. The treatment can target unwanted hair located on your face, arms, legs, bikini line, underarms, and other areas.
Laser Hair Removal Benefits
Laser hair removal has numerous benefits that make it one of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed in the United States. One of the main reasons for its popularity is the incredible precision of the laser that can selectively target hair and leave the surrounding skin intact.
Another key benefit to the treatment is its amazing speed. Each laser pulse takes only a tiny fraction of one second and is able to effectively treat numerous hairs simultaneously. A treatment area the size of a quarter can be treated every second. Smaller treatment areas usually take under one minute, while larger areas can take longer.
Preparing for Laser Hair Removal
If you have a hair removal treatment scheduled, refrain from waxing, plucking, and electrolysis in the weeks leading up to your treatment. The reason for this is that your hairs’ roots will be targeted, and plucking or waxing will temporarily remove them, rendering the treatment ineffective.
Additionally, refrain from exposing yourself to sunlight for a set amount of time both prior to and after your hair removal treatment. The reason is that sun exposure makes the process less effective and increases the likelihood of complications.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
Right before your laser hair removal treatment, hair in the treatment area may be trimmed down to just above the surface of your skin. We will adjust the laser equipment according to the location, thickness, and color of your hair, as well as your skin color. Patients typically require a series of laser hair removal procedures to obtain the desired level of hair removal.
