Lasers have been used as an effective cosmetic treatment for the removal of unwanted hair. It is sensitive enough to treat areas such as the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Because laser hair removal is a medical procedure it should only be performed by a qualified technician with the required training to perform it safely and properly.
The benefits of laser hair removal are vast and can include:
Precision – The lasers are able to selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Permanence - Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
Speed - Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and in that time it can treat many different hairs all at once. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Before undergoing laser hair removal, you should not pluck or wax the area to be treated. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color. When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or cold water to ease any discomfort or redness. Over the next month, the treated hair will fall out. Wear sunscreen for the following month to help prevent temporary changes in the color of the treated skin.
