Why Opt for Laser Hair Removal?
Unlike traditional hair-removal options like plucking, shaving, and waxing, laser hair removal offers a permanent option to reduce unwanted hair. Even some more advanced options, like electrolysis, cause significant pain and require ongoing and uncomfortable treatments.
For many people struggling with unwanted hair, the hair removal techniques themselves produce unwanted effects like redness, ingrown hairs, scratches or allergic reactions. You’re then stuck doing even more work to present the image you want to show to the world. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, gives you the long-term relief that you are looking for. You won’t have to worry about unwanted hair. Laser treatments are non-invasive, safe, and friendly to your skin. You won’t experience pain or discomfort during or after the procedure, and you’ll see the long-lasting and ongoing effects of your hair removal procedure.
Laser hair removal is suitable for all areas of the body, including:
- Bikini area
It is widely used by women and men alike to create permanent hair reduction.
How Does it Work?
When you choose laser hair removal, a specialized laser hair removal system will be used in order to remove your unwanted body hair without damaging the surrounding structures of your delicate skin. Simply, laser hair removal destroys the hair follicles inside your skin with bursts of energy targeted with the laser’s beam. The destruction of the follicle means that the hair falls out entirely and will not regrow unless the body restores the entire follicle. This means that laser hair removal is very effective at producing painless but long-term results.
You should see a real impact in just weeks after your first laser hair removal treatment session, although several treatment sessions are often necessary in order to fully remove all active hair follicles in a particular area. Multiple treatment sessions will ensure results across the targeted area of your face or body.
The Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Your actual laser hair removal procedure is very fast and requires only a little bit of your time during your busy day. You can even schedule your treatment on a break during your work day. Facial treatments and some other small area treatments, like the bikini area, can be completed in ten minutes or less, while larger areas like full legs or the back may take longer. This means that laser hair removal can fit into your daily life. You won’t need to go through painful waxing before your treatment or make an effort to grow out unwanted hair before beginning your laser hair removal treatment. During the procedure, you shouldn’t feel anything more than a slight sting as the laser is applied via pulses to your hair. In very sensitive areas of the body, you may experience some swelling or redness immediately following the treatment; this should dissipate within a few hours.
Following Your San Jose Laser Hair Removal Treatment
After your procedure, you may notice some redness to your skin or mild swelling in the area where the laser hair removal treatment was applied. This is no reason for concern; it is a short-term effect of the small damage done to your hair follicles and the healing of your body.
In order to protect your skin after laser treatment, it is important to avoid the sun to prevent potential damage that could be caused by the UV radiation of the sun’s rays. Keep the treatment area covered and apply a high-SPF sunscreen to areas like your face. Your treatment specialist will go over in detail the steps to follow to keep your skin at its healthiest and most supple following your procedure.
