What is it?
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a pulsating laser to remove unwanted hair giving you a long lasting, even permanent result. The laser beam passes through the skin to each individual hair follicle eliminating future hair growth.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal:
Precision- Lasers can selectively target hair and hair follicles all while leaving the surrounding areas of the skin undamaged.
Speed - The laser being used can treat an area the size of a quarter every second. Smaller areas like the upper lip are easily treated in a matter of minutes, meanwhile larger areas can only take up to about an hour.
Predictability - Most people have permanent hair loss after 3-6 sessions.
Before booking your appointment:
Try limiting plucking and waxing before undergoing your laser hair removal treatment. The laser targets hair roots which are removed when you wax or pluck so it is recommended to let the hair grow weeks before your treatment.
What to expect:
The laser will be adjusted to the color and thickness of the hair as well as the area it will targeting. You may be asked to wear eye protection, depending on where the treatment will be done and you will also spread a cooling gel on the areas to protect the skin.
