Laser hair removal is the treatment for you if you want to get rid of unwanted body hair.
Laser hair removal uses concentrated beams of light to damage hair follicles and slowdown (and even prevent) hair from growing back. This treatment can be used for legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, bikini line, and more. Say goodbye to skin irritation and ingrown hairs – with laser hair removal you get a smooth, sleek, hair free look.
Laser Hair Removal At A Glance
Laser hair removal works by damaging hair follicles with a concentrated beam of light. The light emitted by the laser is absorbed by the pigment in the hair and is then converted into heat that damages the follicle. This damage helps prevent and delay hair growth at the treatment site.
Common side effects include skin irritation such as redness or swelling – this resolves within a few hours after treatment is completed. Skin pigment may also be altered and could be temporary or permanent. It is imperative to to not have a tan before treatment for this reason.
Clients often report that laser hair removal treatments feel like a series of warm pinpricks at the treatment site. A topical numbing cream may be provided and self applied prior to your appointment to decrease any discomfort for a large area treatment.
During your consultation, we will determine if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. Laser hair removal works best for individuals that have a good contrast between skin and hair color as the laser uses the pigment of the hair to destroy the follicle. Those with light hair (white, gray, red, and blond) will find they are not a good candidate for treatment. Another option for hair removal on the face is electrolysis.
