Is Laser Hair Removal right for you?
Are you tired of tedious tweezing, daily shaving, and painful waxing? Is Laser Hair Removal right for you? Let’s look at some common questions that customers have for one of the world’s most popular aesthetic procedures.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a quick, non-invasive method that can eliminate unwanted hair on certain areas of the body.
How does the treatment work?
A concentrated beam of light is aimed at hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle enough to retard future growth. Lasers can remove hair for anywhere from several months to years, as the results differ widely from person to person.
Does it hurt?
The level of discomfort depends on the treated area, the texture of the hair, and skin. Darker skin people are more sensitive because they have more pigment, not just in the hair, but in their skin as well. Patients with dark and coarse hair experience more discomfort as well. After each treatment, the hair becomes lighter or thinner and the pain subsides, which makes it easier to handle the laser.
Are there any possible side effects?
In some cases, clients experience stinging, mild swelling and pigmentation changes immediately following their treatment. Very rarely, small blisters or may appear. These side effects are only temporary and typically fade within a day or two of treatment.
Will there be any downtime?
There is no downtime associated with laser hair removal. You may return to your normal routine immediately after the treatment is completed.
How long does a Laser Hair Removal treatment last?
The procedure can last between 15 minutes and an hour depending on the size of the area being treated.
Does Laser Hair Removal work on white or blonde hair?
Unfortunately, there are currently no effective treatments for the permanent reduction of white or blonde hair.
