Laser Hair Removal
One of the most effective ways to get rid of hair completely is Laser Hair Removal. Where shaving, tweezing, and waxing can get rid of hair temporarily, laser hair removal has a greater chance of permanent hair removal.
Laser hair removal utilizes a pulsing laser that targets dark coarse hairs and destroys them completely while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Tweezing, shaving, and waxing can be a painful experience and irritate the skin, but laser hair removal can be performed with significantly less irritation.
One of the benefits of laser hair removal is the speed at which it can be performed. A small area such as the eyebrows can be treated in a few seconds, where larger areas such as the legs or back can be treated in less than an hour.
To achieve permanent hair removal, repeated sessions are usually required. It can take anywhere from 2 to 8 sessions to completely destroy the hair follicle.
Before you undergo laser hair removal, there are a few things you should do in preparation. Firstly, laser hair removal is a medical procedure and should only be performed by licensed and qualified professionals. You should research the laser hair removal clinic to make sure they are legitimate and have received positive feedback from their former clients.
Secondly, you will need to let your hair grow out a bit before you go in for treatment since plucking and waxing can remove the root of the hair that the laser will be targeting. The recommended growth period prior to undergoing treatment is six weeks. That will allow previously plucked hairs to regrow a bit so that they can be properly destroyed by the laser.
Finally, you will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure for six weeks before your procedure as it can bleach hair and disrupt the follicles which can lead to incomplete removal of the unwanted hair.
When you go in for your first treatment, your hair will be trimmed to a few millimeters in length to make the procedure quicker and allow the technician to better see the areas where hair will be removed.
There are different lasers that are used for hair removal, so depending on which clinic you choose, the specifics of your procedure may differ. Some machines require eye protection to be worn during use.
A gel will be applied to the skin that will help protect the epidermis and help light enter the follicles. If it is your first treatment, the technician will usually test the laser on a small area for a few minutes to make sure the procedure is effective and that there are no adverse reactions to the skin.
After the procedure you will be offered cooling lotions and possibly ice packs to alleviate the skin irritation. Your next follow-up procedure can be scheduled as soon as a month later. For a few days immediately following the laser hair removal, your skin will feel a bit like it has been sunburned.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The total cost of your laser hair removal procedure can vary depending on how much hair you need removed, the number of follow-up treatments required, your choice of clinic, and your geographic location. The price between different clinics can differ wildly and many laser hair removal centers often offer seasonal sales or special discounts, so it might be worth it to shop around before deciding which one is right for you.
