Why Choose Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is just one of many solutions to removing hair, with shaving and waxing being far more common. However, unlike those two methods, laser hair removal does not cause damage to the skin. It’s also far more effective and not a short temporary solution like waxing and shaving that needs to be done on a far more regular basis.
How Does it Work?
The process works by utilizing medical-grade equipment to produce a concentrated beam of light that removes unwanted hair. The laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigments in the hair which is then converted to heat and damages the hair follicles. This then inhibits and delays hair growth which effectively prevents it from growing back for a long period of time. Maintenance treatments might be needed to upkeep the hair removal and to maintain your silky-smooth skin.
We get a lot of questions regarding laser hair removal, so here are some of the most common ones and our professional responses.
- Does it hurt? Laser hair removal is not painful. Although the laser heats up your hair follicles, a cooling mechanism is provided immediately following the laser which soothes your skin.
- Is it a long process? The treatment time varies depending on the area you have chosen.
- Are there concerns after the treatment? The heat from the laser can stay in your skin for roughly 24 hours. This means that you must not agitate it such as sunbathing or working out.
- Are there concerns before the treatment? You may not pluck or wax the hair in the area that is to be treated before your appointment.
