Dealing with unwanted hair on your face and on your body can be frustrating. For women, having thick facial hair growth or thick hair growth on your arms can be a source of embarrassment and make you feel self-conscious. The same is true of men who have an overgrowth of hair on their back or on their chest.
In an attempt to minimize the amount of hair on their body, people have gone through all sorts of hair removal techniques. Many of these involve shaving, plucking, pulling or waxing the unwanted hair. There are a couple of problems with these solutions. First, they are not solutions at all. They are only a temporary fix. If a person shaves off all the hair on their back, in just a few weeks, it’s going to be there again.
The second problem is that these manual procedures are time-consuming. Applying shaving creams, using a razor to remove hair and applying a disinfectant after the shave all eats up a ton of time. The third problem is that manually removing facial hair or body hair can produce irritation and ingrown hairs that at times are more unsightly than the hair itself.
In view of this, many people have opted to use laser hair removal. Some of the benefits of laser hair removal include its precision, its ease-of-use and its speed.
Laser hair removal works by directing a high-powered beam of light at the hair. The pigmentation in the hair absorbs the light, and it affects the hair and the hair follicle. The result is that a person is left with smooth skin.
Laser hair removal is not a one-time treatment. You will need to go in for multiple treatments to achieve the ideal results. For best results, you will need to avoid being in the sun for a few days before and after the treatment.
The best candidates for laser hair removal are in good health, have healthy skin, have a clear goal in mind with their laser hair removal and have a realistic outlook for what the procedure can do for them. This will all be discussed during a consultation at our office.
