Laser Hair Removal: The permanent solution to any unwanted hair
If you haven’t noticed already, body hair will grow everywhere. People will go to great lengths to keep those hairs from showing. Whether it’s the thought of getting a data and getting your body into the little black dress in your closet, just to notice that you forgot to shave, or the discomfort of accidently scratching your loved ones face with your 5 o’clock shadow while you try to go in for a kiss. Everyone has an issue with their body hair. The increased need to have smooth skin 24/7 is why many people go for laser hair removal and why it is growing worldwide.
You can join the “no razor, no problem” club while we begin to introduce the benefits of having laser hair removal. Permanent hair removal is within reach as technology advancements make the process of getting rid of unwanted hair a real possibility.
Not only do we offer hair removal, we also use Cynosure’s Elite laser system, which is the latest in laser technology. Unlike other hair removal lasers, this system will let us select two different wave lengths and a customized treatment for each client. Lighter skin will require a different wave length than those who have darker skin. Other than having the opportunity to get rid of your razors permanently, there are other additional benefits of having laser hair removal.
These benefits include:
- Being predictable – research has been able to prove that this procedure is effective and is a great tool for hair removal after the recommended sessions.
- Being precise – the handheld laser only targets the dark coarse hair, leaving the surrounding skin untouched.
- Being fast – the concentrated light is sent to the skin for just a fraction of a second and treats multiple hair follicles at once.
How does laser hair removal work?
Before the procedure
What you should do before the procedure:
- Feel confident that laser hair removal is for you
- Schedule a consultation
If you make the choice to have this permanent solution for unwanted hair, the first step is to get a consultation. Talk with a laser technician who will answer any questions that you have about the procedure, although this article may answer most of them for you. The technician will also view your medical history, address concerns, and talk about what is expected during and after the treatment. You will also be able to talk about the time it takes to do the procedure and the number of treatments needed to reach your goal.
Once you have that understanding of the laser hair removal service, the next step is to come in for your first treatment.
During the procedure
What should you expect during the procedure?
- Trimming the areas for treatment
- Customized laser settings
- Treatment using advanced technology
- Application of a cooling gel
The first time for anything can be nerve wracking, but not if you know what you should expect. When you come in for your first treatment, the technician will trim your hair just so that it stands above the skin. After that a cooling gel will be applied before the laser is picked up.
The technician will then adjust the settings of the wave length based on the hair color, skin tone, thickness, and location. Once the settings are right, and the laser is activated, your hair follicles will be treated.
The hair removal process starts as the laser sends out highly concentrated light beams to the hair follicle root, where the hair growth starts. The pigment of each hair follicle absorbs the light which damages it and stops the hair growth cycle.
Once the area is treated, the procedure ends with a cooling gel being applied to the area that helps with discomfort.
After the procedure
What should you expect?
- Small amount of hair shedding
- Avoiding the exposure to the sun
- Minor swelling or redness
The temporary swelling and redness is common to have after most procedures. In order to help reduce discomfort apply ice, aloe gel, or use OTC anti-inflammatory medications.
The sun may damage your skin daily, but after the procedure your skin will be really vulnerable. It is vital that you avoid sun exposure as much as you can. This includes tanning beds and natural sunlight. Sunblock can only be applied to your skin once the skin has been fully healed, which takes about 4 to 6 weeks.
You may also notice hair shedding, but how else do you lose unwanted hair for good? Most people have mistaken this as new hair growth, but be at peace knowing that isn’t the case at all.
Just like with other hair removal procedures, it may take multiple treatments to give you permanent hair loss and give you natural looking results. Until then, hair growth is still possible, but will be lighter and finer. The returning hair will be less noticeable and will be eliminated with more treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.
There are a few concerns and side effects that are normally brought up during the consultation.
- Shaving before the procedure
- Changes in skin pigment
When it comes to skin irritation, we mean having slight swelling or redness in the area. These normally disappear within a few hours and should only cause minor discomfort. If you have questions about the severity of irritated skin, call your technician.
Changes in your pigment
Don’t just select any spa to receive laser hair removal. Having the incorrect setting and unfit laser wave lengths, technicians may damage the pigment of your skin, which may cause the skin to be lighter or darker in color.
Shaving before the procedure
Shaving is acceptable and will allow the technician to skip the hair trimming step. Unlike plucking or waxing, shaving just cuts the hair. This preserves the hair follicle and lets the hair be removed from the root.
