The personal grooming market is flooded with hair removal methods. Waxing,
sugaring, threading, plucking, shaving, using a depilatory cream and even
buffing off hair with fine-grain sandpaper are all being marketed as ways
to remove unwanted hair. However, all of them fall short of permanent
removal and may irritate your skin. At the
Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center in Spring,
laser hair removal is quick, permanent and can save you thousands of dollars over the long term.
The Process of Laser Hair Removal
Using a finely tuned beam of light, the laser works by heating the hair
follicles and affecting the root of the hair. This makes the hair follicle
incapable of re-growing another hair, much like hair will not grow on
a scar. Unlike a scar, however, there is no visible damage left behind
for others to see or feel. The effect is intentional and just enough to
discourage future hair growth, leaving your skin permanently silky smooth.
Areas That Can Be Treated
Laser hair removal is customized to the individual, and nearly every area
of the body can be treated. Women tend to focus on unwanted facial hair,
leg hair and pubic hair, while men may want to remove neck hair that extends
below their beard line or hair on the back of their neck. Other options
include removing hair on the chest, back, shoulders, arms and even on
the tops of the hands and feet.
Laser treatments used to be far more uncomfortable than they are now, and
there are several options available to help ease any discomfort you experience.
Most patients describe the laser treatment as being snapped with a rubber
band, meaning that it can be startling, but not very uncomfortable. Others
experience only a mild tingling sensation during treatment.
