When it comes to removing excess hair, the traditional methods come with pros and cons. Shaving is easy and convenient, but the hair will grow back quickly. Waxing provides longer-lasting results than shaving, but it may lead to discomfort and ingrown hairs. Tweezing is precise but time-consuming. Despite the different pros and cons these methods raise, they have one thing in common: they are all temporary. For those who want a more permanent solution to unwanted body hair, laser hair removal may be the answer.
As a semi-permanent hair removal option, laser hair removal is one of the best ways to say goodbye to excess hair on your body. Most people who choose laser hair removal can enjoy smooth, hair-free skin for several years before needing any touchups.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by destroying the hair follicle. Once the follicle is destroyed, it will no longer produce hair.
The hair on our body goes through different growing cycles. Because of this, all of the hair follicles that need to be treated may not be detected by the laser. This is why we recommend that patients come in for multiple procedures. This way, we can ensure you receive the most thorough and long-lasting results possible.
Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?
The effectiveness of laser hair removal depends on the color of one’s skin and hair. Laser hair removal generally works best on individuals with light skin and dark hair. However, this doesn’t mean it won’t work for others. People with all types of skin tones and hair colors have enjoyed long-lasting results with laser hair removal. If you are concerned with how effective laser hair removal might be for you, we invite you to come in for an initial consultation. We will examine the area you want to treat and let you know what to expect.
Why Choose Laser Hair Removal?
One reason why so many people turn to laser hair removal is because of the time it saves. Think about how much time you spend shaping, shaving, tweezing, or waxing your hair. For many people, these processes are just a part of the daily routine. With laser hair removal, your daily routine doesn’t have to involve removing unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal can also be done on many areas, including the legs, face, underarms, back, and bikini area. Many people find that they enjoy the freedom that comes with being able to wear what they want without having to think about excess hair.
