It’s a new year! While many are making their traditional resolutions, some are plotting their fight against unwanted hair. Excess hair can be a problem for both men and women, and most hair removal techniques are temporary and painful. So, if you’re waxed out, tweezed out, threaded out, or shaved out, read on.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a perfect hair removal solution that boasts long-term results. The lasers use thin beams of light that are aimed at precise areas of the body. The energy from the light heats the hair follicle, damaging it. The damage slows hair re-growth, allowing you to enjoy a much more extended hair-free period. The process has minimal discomfort and downtime.
Hair grows in cycles and depending on the coarseness and color of the hair, the number of required treatment sessions will vary. Laser hair removal works best on dark hair and may not be as effective on blonde, gray, or red hair. It can be done in-office and works on many parts of the body from the upper lip, chin, underarms, chest, back, neck shoulders, and the sensitive bikini areas, to name a few!
The treated areas may be red for a day or two after, but ice packs and anti-inflammatory cream will help any discomfort.
