Laser Hair Removal Procedure
A laser hair removal procedure actually involves multiple treatments, as hair goes through various cycles of growth. To ensure that results are permanent, multiple laser treatments are employed to eliminate hair at its root. Depending on the type and amount of hair being removed, laser hair removal treatment may require four to six sessions separated roughly one month apart. Once the treatment is complete, patients can expect an 80 to 90 percent permanent reduction in hair growth.
To prepare for the procedure, the area being treated will first be shaved a couple of days prior. On the day of the procedure, anesthetic cream or a cooling gel may be applied to the treatment area for the patient’s benefit, although neither is necessary, as laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure. Additionally, the patient and technician will wear protective eyewear to counter against the laser.
Once the procedure begins, a handheld laser will be used to precisely target the hairs. 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 will vary depending on what area of the body is being treated; the back may require an hour to be treated while the upper lip or chin can be treated in 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.
Laser Hair Removal Benefits
Improved self-confidence and self-esteem, a refined look more befitting your self-image, and a greatly reduced grooming regimen are all benefits of undergoing laser hair removal. The procedure is a wonderful option for both men and women, as the treatment is non-invasive and the results are permanent, meaning the benefits can last a lifetime. If you feel self-conscious about your body or appearance because of excess or unwanted hair, laser hair removal can have a tremendous impact on your life.
