It’s that time again! Time to stop hiding behind the jeans, boots and leggings of the cooler months and time to whip out those swimsuits and shorts! That also means having to get out your razors, tweezers, wax and more – not something most of us look forward to. But that’s why so many women in Hollywood are now turning to Los Feliz Med Spa’s laser hair removal to smooth out their legs – and going years without shaving, waxing or other dreaded forms of hair removal!
During a laser hair removal treatment, your doctor aims a small precision laser at each individual hair root on your leg for a few seconds each. This destroys the root, halting hair growth and causing the hairs to fall out over the following two to four weeks. Although this certainly takes longer than shaving or tweezing would, the results are worth it. Most patients find that after about 8 to 10 sessions, you can be hair-free for two years or more. That’s two years of no razors, no painful waxing and going out of the house in your favorite dresses, shorts and swimsuits without worrying about stubble!
The procedure isn’t very painful with most patients describing it as a light buzzing sensation, like when you snap a small elastic against your skin. You may experience some redness and slight swelling afterward, but you can return to your regular activities right away. Typically, any redness disappears after a few hours.
There are also some considerations to take before undergoing the procedure. These include:
- Stopping any hair removal in the area being treated six weeks before the procedure.
- Not using tanning lotions or any tanning before the treatment – the melatonin levels in skin can change how the laser works.
