Tired of shaving, waxing, and tweezing unwanted hair? Looking for a permanent solution to unwanted hair? Now is the time to try laser hair removal. The procedure is fast, safe, and convenient. Laser hair removal can inhibit hair growth on various areas of the body, including the face, arms, legs, and bikini line.
What happens during the procedure?
If the area to be treated has extremely thin hair, the hair will be trimmed prior to the procedure so that it is just a few millimeters above the skin’s surface. The laser will be adjusted before the procedure to ensure the settings are appropriate depending on the patient’s unique needs, skin color, hair thickness, hair color, and the hair location. A protective gel will be used to coat the surrounding skin, minimizing laser exposure and improving laser penetration into the skin. Plus, the doctor and the patient will both don protective eyewear.
The actual procedure will then begin. Laser light pulses will be administered to the treatment areas to heat the hair follicles, inhibiting them from growing hair. Multiple treatments are needed for optimal results. These treatments will be scheduled in intervals until hair growth stops.
