Constantly grooming away unwanted body hair not only has ongoing demands of both time and money, but there are also side effects and health risks to consider. Waxing, plucking, shaving, chemical depilatories and threading all open your skin to irritation and infection, with the added risk of possible burns if heat or chemicals are used. This can lead to ingrown hairs, skin tunnels, infections and scars. If you’re tired of paying good money and spending free time to remove the same unwanted body hair repeatedly, laser hair removal may be just the right solution for you.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal uses a carefully calibrated beam of light to heat up your hair shafts in the treatment area without harming your skin. By heating up the hair shafts, the follicles are damaged and will no longer produce hair. The “damage” to your hair follicles is microscopic and cannot be seen or felt, making it a great choice for long-lasting, more permanent hair removal. Although most areas of the body can be treated, common treatment areas include the legs, arms, chest and bikini line.
An Adaptable Procedure
Laser hair removal can be applied to almost any clear, unbroken skin. This means it works for people of any gender, in almost any treatment area. Male patients may wish to have the hair on the back of their neck removed, the edges of their beard permanently made crisp or even have their entire chest and back treated. Women may opt to treat their legs or unwanted facial hair. It is up to you to decide what area or areas you want to treat. As hair grows in cycles and one treatment alone will not leave an area hairless, laser hair removal can also be used to thin out thick body hair without going completely smooth, if that’s what you prefer.
