3 Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Every woman knows the struggle of dealing with unwanted hair. Winter is pleasant for these problems because most of us are bundled up in pants, long sleeve sweaters, and scarves. But with spring only a few months away now is the perfect time to get started on a series of laser hair removal sessions. This treatment is so much more effective and of course permanent than tweezing, shaving, and waxing.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
This method of hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures conducted in the U.S. A concentrated beam of light is shot down into the hair follicles. The pigment of the follicles absorb the light, which destroys the hair. For this reason the process works best on people with fair skin complexion and dark hair. However, the treatment does prove successful on others without this combination as well. Most spas and salons will offer a series of six to eight treatments to ensure that the hair is lasered at several different stages of growth.
One of the best benefits of laser hair removal is the precision that is offered. Hair can be removed from just about any spot on the body without any harm to surrounding skin. Compared to creams, shaving, and at home waxing, this method offers the highest level of precision. The fact that this treatment is conducted by a certified expert also means that you will receive quality care.
No Down Time and Pain Free
Laser hair removal is a quick process. Most sessions range from five to 30 minutes depending on the area that is targeted. The only adverse results are redness caused by the ice pack that is used to numb the skin. Patients return to regular activity almost immediately. Many people do not feel any pain while undergoing this laser treatment. It is compared to the snap of a rubber band. Most spas also use a cooling gel or ice pack to numb the area being to treated to further ensure the comfort of the patient.
A Permanent Solution
The greatest benefit of this laser hair treatment is the fact that it is permanent. After six to eight sessions of laser hair removal most patients experience permanent hair loss or hair reduction. Some require touch ups after a period of time but this is rare.
