Permanent Hair Reduction – Laser Therapy

Imagine not having to deal with the frustration, frequency, expense, and pain of constantly getting rid of unwanted hair. Imagine a laser beam of light that can get rid of your unwanted hair, and keep it away for a long time. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. Laser hair removal is here to stay.

Why Use a Laser?

There are benefits of using laser hair removal therapy compared to other methods;

  • Remember tweezers, shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams? Their disadvantage is that hair usually returns within three to seven days.
  • Electrolysis provides longer-lasting results than conventional methods. For many, however, electrolysis is too painstaking as it treats one hair follicle at a time. Compared to electrolysis, laser hair removal typically requires fewer treatment sessions, less time per session, and minimal discomfort.

Laser treatment can remove hair from many areas of the body, including the face, upper lip, bikini line, and neck area. The results of the laser can last for many weeks before hair is even slightly visible.

  • Results in the upper-body last from seven to 11 weeks.
  • Mid-body results last from ten to 16 weeks.
  • Leg treatments last from 11 to 17 weeks.

Laser Hair Removal Is Most Suitable For

  • Dark hair, light skin, and coarse hair are the easiest to treat. These patients typically see the best results and require fewer treatment sessions.
  • People with dark skin may not be ideal candidates for laser hair removal, but may still benefit from treatment. Under certain circumstances the procedure can be effective.
  • Blond, grey, and red hairs are more difficult to treat with a laser.
  • Tanned patients must wait until the tan fades before treatment.
  • People who suffer from skin disorders such as psoriasis, cystic acne, and dermatitis are not ideal candidates for laser hair removal.
  • People taking certain medications such as Retin-A or Accutane are excluded from treatment.
  • Treatment is not appropriate for people who have a pacemaker, who are pregnant, or who have metal screws in the area where the procedure would be performed.
  • The procedure does not necessarily result in 100 percent reduction of unwanted hair in the first treatment session. Multiple sessions may be needed.
