Procedure, Benefits, Side Effects, and Everything
Do you know that one of the most commonly done cosmetic treatments in the US is laser hair removal? If you don’t like waxing and tweezing and want to get rid of unwanted hair forever, then this treatment is definitely for you!
In laser hair removal, the unwanted hairs are exposed to strong light beams which damage the hair follicle and strive to remove the hair from the root. In most cases the procedure requires 6 to 10 sessions to remove 90% of the hair on average. At SkinProLogica we take into account your skin color, age, hair type, thickness, and the body part from which the unwanted hair exists.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a safe, non-surgical process in which the laser pulse targets the dark follicle only. The remaining skin around the follicle is left untouched and undamaged. This technique uses beams of highly concentrated light to penetrate the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by pigment in the follicles and is designed to destroys the hair within.
Laser hair removal is among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S. The percentage of hairs removed per session varies by location on the body, but an average about 10 percent to 25 percent reduction in hair growth can be expected with each treatment. Treatments are repeated every four to eight weeks. Occasional touch-up treatments may be required after optimal results are achieved.
Preparing for Laser Hair Removal
When planning to undergo laser hair removal, you will have to limit electrolysis, waxing, and plucking your hair at least 6 weeks prior to getting the treatment. You should also avoid exposure to the sun before and after the treatment, since it can cause the treatment to be less effective. The area to be treated must be shaved prior to the procedure for more effective results.
Laser hair removal is a precise process compared to regular waxing, shaving, and tweezing. Another reason to choose laser hair removal treatment is its effectiveness. As the laser damages the hair follicle, hair growth is also inhibited which is why it is called permanent hair removal treatment. Book today!
