Wondering what permanent hair removal means with laser treatments?
Do you shave or wax your unwanted hair away? Both of these methods are only temporary solutions. They only take on the top portion of the hair follicle. This is why the hairs always regrow.
Lasers are the only tools available that can get deep enough the reach the cellular core of the hair follicle. This method eventually leads to the elimination of all unwanted hairs on any part of your body that you decide to treat. Even facial hair removal is possible with laser hair removal.
Why you should go for this permanent hair removal method
There are times when you just don’t feel like shaving or you really need a wax on your bikini line before going on vacation. Instead of having to worry about unwanted hair embarrassing you, you can have it removed forever. The added bonus is that you’ll spend less time getting ready.
While rare, some people experience a condition called hirsutism which mimics male-pattern hair growth. Other have hypertrichosis, which involves excessive hair distribution and growth where these growth cycles aren’t supposed to occur, resulting in unwanted hair growth. For both of these occurrences, laser hair removal can help you feel confident in yourself again.
Many women sprout chin hairs as they start to age, a very embarrassing situation that no one ever wants to talk about. Plucking them daily, shaving, or using a wax or depilatory takes up time. Wouldn’t it be great to get close and intimate with someone without worrying if they can notice these errant hairs? That’s exactly why you should consider permanent hair removal through laser.
Does my skin type matter?
About Face uses the Candela® GentleYAG laser. This allows for ease of permanent hair removal from all skin types in a safe and precise manner. Come in for that free consultation and we’ll tell you all about it.
What happens during the procedure?
The laser pulses with high energy and is moved over the area you want treated. The device is a handheld item, one that is rather painless. Most patients liken it to being snapped lightly with a rubber band. This of course varies depending on which parts of your body you’ll be having lasered for permanent hair removal.
It’s important to note though that because hair follicles are in different stages of growth, you may need several sessions to keep away all hair regrowth on the treated areas. Additionally, follicles can be activated when you go through hormonal changes or start new medications which could create new hair growth even after your treatments.
What about side effects?
Thankfully, there is no damage or irritation from laser hair removal. You may experience some redness right after treatment though. This will fade over the course of a day or more. Discomfort can be treated with a cold compress.
How much is laser hair removal?
Much of it depends on the area that you’re having treated. While it is a more expensive option than shaving or waxing, the results are permanent and will save you time and hassle, not to mention boost your confidence for years to come. Imagine never having to worry again about facial hair removal or keeping your bikini area hairless when it’s time for swimsuit season. No more cuts in the shower while shaving either!
