OPT FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL AND TOSS YOUR RAZOR

Everyone, male or female, grows hair in places where they would prefer it would not. The face, the armpits, the legs, and the back are all common areas where people shave, wax, and tweeze. These processes can be very frustrating. The hair always grows back and they have to be repeated, sometimes daily. As the hair grows back, it can create cosmetically displeasing and painful red bumps and unpleasant stubble effects. Most people would prefer a hair removal method that leaves the skin permanently smooth, healthy, and non-irritated.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair Removal is, a laser is used to focus energy on the color of hair papilla. Hair papilla tends to contain more concentrated amounts of dark pigments than the surrounding skin, so they preferentially absorb the energy from the laser. Once sufficient energy has been absorbed, the heat damages the hair follicle, causing it to become unable to grow hair. Passing the laser smoothly over the skin allows the hair follicles to be damaged without affecting the surrounding skin.

How Long Does it Take?

It will take a few minutes to treat small areas. Treating a large area, such as the entire back or the legs, may take longer. Patients will experience some discomfort during the procedure. A cooling gel may be applied to the skin to help with it, and in sensitive areas, numbing cream may be used.

Preparation

For about six weeks before  a laser hair removal treatment, it is important to protect the area from sunlight. Sun exposure darkens the pigments in the skin and makes each procedure less effective in targeting the hair. It is also important to avoid tweezing and waxing, because any hair follicle that has had its hair root pulled out recently will not be affected by the procedure. However, you should have the treatment area one day before treatment.

Recovery After the procedure, the skin in the treated area may be reddened and tender. Application of ice packs can reduce discomfort. Normal activities can be resumed immediately. Since hair grows in 6-8 week cycles, not all hair follicles will be permanently destroyed during any particular session. Most people may need five or more sessions to eliminate hair growth permanently in the treated area.
