What areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?
You may have excess hair on various areas of your body, all of which we can remove for the long term with our advanced laser treatments:
To prepare for laser hair removal, the area where the hair is to be removed must be shaved a couple of days before treatment. On the day of the procedure, anesthetic cream or a cooling gel can be applied to the treatment area for increased comfort. Laser hair removal is both tolerable to experience and non-invasive. Both you and your technician will wear protective eyewear during the procedure.
Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments, as the hair moves through various cycles of growth. To ensure that results are long-lasting, you will need to undergo several procedures. Depending on the type and amount of hair, your treatment may require four to six sessions roughly one month apart. Once the treatment is complete, you can expect that 80 to 90 percent of the unwanted hair will be gone -- forever.
Once the procedure begins, a handheld laser will be used to precisely target the hair. Depending on the specific needs of the treatment, the intensity, size, and pulse frequency of the laser beam can be adjusted to help ensure maximum results while preventing injury or discomfort. The duration of the procedure varies based on the area being treated; the back may require an hour while the upper lip or chin can require as little as 10 minutes. After the laser hair removal treatment is over, there may be some redness or swelling, but these symptoms quickly subside.
Being free of an excess of hair leads to improved self-confidence and self-esteem. You will gain the benefit of presenting a refined look more befitting your self-image, and far less time spent on grooming, waxing, shaving, or plucking. The procedure is a wonderful option for both men and women, as the treatment is non-invasive, and the results can last a lifetime. If you feel self-conscious about your body or appearance because of excess or unwanted hair, laser hair removal can be life-changing.
