Are you interested in doing something more permanent to get rid of your unwanted body hair? Perhaps you have spent many years using razors or waxing kits in order to get rid of hair on your legs, bikini area, underarms, face, or other parts of your body. You may feel frustrated with these treatments because they have to be repeated over and over again and do not always provide the best results. We would like to tell you about laser hair removal.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe for All Skin Types?
When you visit us for your initial consultation, we are going to examine the areas where you would like to have the treatment performed. Your safety is our main focus. If we feel even a little bit concerned that the treatments we offer are not right for your skin, we will let you know. We will give you a realistic idea of the results that you can expect as well.
Many have the idea that only certain individuals can have laser hair removal treatments performed. In the past, it was most common for individuals who had a light skin and dark hair to get the best results. Nowadays, individuals with all skin types are getting fantastic results thanks to the advances that have been made laser technology.
When a person has this treatment performed and they have darker hair and lighter skin, the type of laser that is used will use heat to damage hair follicles. The heat is attracted to the darker pigment in the hair. When an individual who has darker skin has the treatment performed, lasers using light energy are often used. The energy is usually attracted to the blood in the hair follicle.
We customize our treatments in order to give our patients the best results. We want you to experience semi-permanent hair reduction. If you do experience some type of hair regrowth a couple of years after the treatment has been performed, you will notice that your hair does not grow in the same way it grows now. There is likely to be less of it. Also, the hairs are likely to be thinner and lighter.
What You Should Know Before the Treatment
There are a couple of things that you will need to know in order to get the best results from a treatment. First, make sure that you avoid waxing and plucking unwanted hair from areas where you would like to have the laser hair removal treatment performed. We want the hair follicles in place to get the best results from treatment. It is good for you to know that you can shave in the days before your treatment.
