Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Would you like to eliminate unwanted hair quickly? Laser hair removal is one of the most effective, convenient, and inexpensive ways to remove unwanted hair. The laser light energy emitted by the device targets the root of unwanted hairs and damages or kills them.
The procedure leaves behind a smooth surface free from stubble! Please read this article to learn more about how laser hair removal works and why it’s such an excellent option!
What is Laser Hair Removal?
In case you are tired of plucking, shaving, or waxing and want to get rid of the unwanted hair easily, laser hair removal is one of the best options you need to consider. Your healthcare professional use laser light and target the root of unwanted facial and body hair smoothly and safely. The removal of this unwanted hair may take up to 6 sessions or more, depending on your body’s reaction. Please note that it will never be permanent on a woman’s face due to hormones. However, laser hair removal has a permanent effect on most body areas.
The laser hair removal can be used on the following areas of the body:
- Bikini area
Before the laser treatment, a numbing gel can be applied to the area, and it takes 30 minutes to one hour to work. Low energy ultrasound waves can reduce pain in some cases, but not all devices offer it. It is usually applied after a short pulse burst when required. The device emits low-frequency sound waves that mimic dolphins’ high-pitched sounds to provide relief from discomfort caused by treatments like waxing or sugaring procedures, among others. Patients who suffer from acute anxiety feel less pain using this device.
The patient may still feel warm pinpricks on the area during the procedure. The laser vaporizes the hair causing small plumes of smoke that smell like sulfur. Treating the upper lip usually lasts for a minute, while the larger areas like the back and legs can take up to an half hour.
What are the benefits?
Laser hair removal is a quick method of removing unwanted hair, and it’s less painful than the traditional methods of hair removal. Most patients enjoy smoother skin after the treatment to expose treated areas with confidence. The treatment has long-term effects because of its precision.
What results can you expect?
After the laser treatment, our patients here at Luminare Aesthetics & Wellness stay hair-free for months or even years. When hair starts to grow, it becomes thinner and less noticeable. To remain hair-free, a patient must continue scheduled laser treatments.
What should you do before and after treatment?
You have to select and consult a competent medical professional before having the treatment. Allowing an inexperienced practitioner to perform the treatment is dangerous because scars and permanent changes in your skin can occur. There are possible side effects after getting laser hair removal, and you should protect your skin from sun exposure. Once done with the laser procedure, you must:
- Protect the treated area from direct sunlight.
- Do not use tanning equipment such as sun lamps and tanning beds.
- Use a cold compress to alleviate the redness and swelling that often look like a mild sunburn.
- Listen carefully to the office’s after-care instructions for better results and faster recovery.
Who is the treatment for?
Laser hair removal is perfect for patients with light- and dark-colored hair. If you have dark skin, the laser light will stimulate pigment production that causes unwanted pigmentation.
