What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal temporarily eliminates unwanted body hair and leaves behind smooth, sexy skin. If you’re tired of shaving, tweezing and plucking, treatment might be right for you. Hair grows back in a matter of days after shaving or plucking the visible hair shaft. By removing the hair and the follicle with a controlled laser leads to smooth skin for a longer period of time.
Let’s break it down. Our hair is visible on the surface of our skin, but there is also quite a bit going on beneath the surface that we don’t see. Hair grows from a tiny pouch-like structure called a hair follicle, and it grows in three phases. That hair follicle must be in active growth and removed to end hair growth for long periods of time. We may recommend multiple treatments because follicles are active at different times.
Our advanced laser technology removes hair quickly while maintaining the integrity of the surrounding skin. During treatment, we will apply a cooling gel to the treated areas. A hand-held laser is then placed against the skin and activated, sending gentle light pulses into the hair follicles. Our treatment providers have performed more than 50,000 treatments and have extensive knowledge of all skin types. So you will be in the right hands!
Are There Any Risks or Side Effects?
Everyone’s hair grows differently depending on different factors. Your provider will assess you prior to laser hair removal treatment to provide the right plan for the best result. Laser hair removal is typically well-tolerated. It can feel like a prickling sensation on the skin. Immediately after treatment, the skin may appear pink and slightly swollen as though the client has a sunburn. But your skin should return to normal within 72 hours.
Prior to treatment, our medical staff will inform you of all risks or possible side effects associated with laser hair removal. Results may vary from person to person, but with regular treatment, laser hair removal is effective in managing unwanted body hair over several months or years.
