Laser hair removal has become an extremely popular cosmetic procedure for a good reason: It is a safe and convenient treatment that gives you more time in your life for enjoyable activities, rather than constantly needing to shave, wax, or pluck unwanted hair. A few treatments are all that you need to say goodbye to the razor forever.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment involving the use of a laser that precisely targets individual hair follicles for destruction, permanently preventing them from growing hair in the area of treatment.
How Does It Work?
The melanin, or pigment-producing part of your hair, absorbs the laser energy. This will destroy the hair follicle that is being targeted and it can no longer produce a hair.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment?
We begin your procedure by shaving down your hair in the treated area to a level just above the surface of your skin. You may need to wear protective eye wear during your procedure. The technician will then carefully adjust the laser equipment according to your individual needs. Laser energy will then be transmitted into hair follicles in the treatment area, destroying them and preventing the future growth of unwanted hair.
Are There Any Precautions that I Should Take?
There are a number of precautions you should take before and after your procedure to ensure that you obtain the best results possible. You should avoid prolonged sun exposure for one week before and after your treatment since this could limit its effectiveness or hinder your recovery. If you are currently sunburned, you will need to wait a couple of weeks before your procedure to prevent further skin damage.
