Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a procedure that removes any unwanted hair on the body. It is a safe, non-invasive procedure, so you do not have to worry about having any scars. By investing in laser hair removal, you can enjoy smooth, glowing skin without the need for routine shaving or waxing. 

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is performed for a variety of reasons. Whether it is to help people cut back on shaving or prevent unwanted ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is a fantastic treatment option.

Below is a list of other unique benefits of laser hair removal:

  • The results are long-lasting.
  • The process is quick.
  • It can help boost your self-confidence.
  • Your skin can become smoother.
  • You can save a lot of money over time.
  • There is no recovery period. 

Laser Hair Removal vs. Shaving 

A common debate people have is whether or not laser hair removal is a better alternative to shaving. Both may be methods of hair removal, however, they accomplish this goal differently. Shaving removes hair on the surface of the skin by using a razor to scrape it off. Laser hair removal goes beyond the skin’s surface and targets the hair follicle itself. 

Another factor that separates these two hair removal methods is end result. Due to the limited access that shaving has, the results do not last very long. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, can last months, or even years through consecutive treatments. 

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe for All Skin Types and Complexions?

In the past, laser treatments of any kind were only for people with lighter skin tones. But laser technology has advanced to allow people of all complexions to safely receive laser hair removal treatment. Consult with us beforehand to learn more about the lasers we use and which is the best for your skin type. 

How Many Sessions Do I Need? 

The amount of laser hair removal sessions you need depends on what part of the body you want treated. On average, it takes about six to eight consecutive sessions to see long-lasting results. Laser hair removal also does not permanently remove the hair. Although it may take longer than usual to grow back, it is possible the hair to reappear, albeit in a significantly reduced amount. 

Do You Work on Tattoos? 

No, it is not recommended to get laser hair removal when you have tattoos. Should the laser come into contact with a tattoo’s ink, it could have severe consequences, such as burns, blisters, and distortion of the tattoo itself. It is possible, however, for the doctor to work around the tattooed area. The area will also be properly covered before the procedure begins to protect your skin from unnecessary harm. 

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

No, laser hair removal treatment is not painful, but you may experience mild discomfort and your skin might become red and swollen. These are normal side effects and subside on their own within a few days.

What to Expect During Your Session

As you begin your treatment, you can expect to feel a light burn akin to a pinprick. This is because of the intense heat the laser produces. The amount of time the procedure takes also depends on the area being treated. Sessions can last around 15 minutes to an hour on average.
