Maintaining a flawless and smooth look can be difficult and time consuming if you resort to shaving or waxing your skin. You must touch up your hair removal every few days and invest in razors, shaving creams, and wax strips that can be costly to buy.
When you want permanent results and better results, you may consider laser hair removal. Find out if this cosmetic procedure is right for you and how it can give you the smooth skin results you want.
What is Laser Skin Removal?
Laser skin removal is a cosmetic procedure that is done on an outpatient basis. It involves applying highly concentrated light to your skin’s hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light and destroys the hair.
This procedure is fast and simple and can give you long lasting results. It also makes your skin look smooth and flawless without you having to shave or wax your hair.
How is Laser Skin Removal Done?
The procedure is done in our office and only takes a few minutes or up to an hour depending on how much hair you want to have removed. Our provider will give you a pair of protective eyeglasses to wear so that the concentrated light does not harm your retinas. After the procedure is finished, you may be given ice packs to ease any discomfort.
You can then schedule your next laser hair removal session in four to six weeks. It may take several sessions for your hair to be permanently removed.
Laser Skin Removal Benefits
This cosmetic procedure is one of the most commonly performed in the U.S. and offers numerous benefits that make it attractive to patients who want their skin to look smooth and flawless. Some of its primary advantages include:
precision targeting of hair without compromising skin health
can be used in sensitive areas like the bikini line, underarm, arm, leg, and face
removes large areas of hair at one time
long-lasting hair reduction after three to seven sessions
Further, the recovery time for laser hair removal is minimal. However, you may be advised to avoid going out in the sun and encouraged to wear sunscreen for at least a week after your treatment. You can typically resume your normal activities the same day as your procedure.
Laser hair removal is a safe and fast cosmetic treatment that is more effective in removing hair than waxing or shaving. It continues to be popular with patients who want smooth and attractive skin without the effort of plucking, waxing, shaving, and other hair removal methods.
