Undergoing a laser hair removal procedure is a convenient way to free up your time for more pleasurable activities. Gone are the days when you need to wax, pluck, or shave to remove unwanted hair. Lasers offer a safe and effective treatment method for the permanent removal of unwanted hair.
A Closer Look at Laser Hair Removal
We use a cosmetic laser to precisely target hair follicles that will absorb targeted laser energy, destroying them and preventing them from growing hair permanently or for a long time. The melanin, or pigment-producing part of your hair, will absorb this energy.
Multiple Treatments for Hair Removal
You will need to undergo a series of laser hair removal treatment sessions to catch each individual hair when it happens to be in its growth phase. Follicles in a dormant phase do not have a hair present for the laser to target. Multiple laser treatments are all that is required for the desired removal of unwanted hair in areas like your face, underarms, legs, and bikini line.
The laser hair removal procedure is carried out in the comfort of our office. During the treatment, the technician will direct focused light energy into the hair follicles in the treatment area. The laser energy is carefully controlled in order to ensure precision and patient comfort. The follicles will absorb the thermal energy from the laser and be destroyed by it. We are able to treat many hair follicles simultaneously using this method.
Pre and Post-Treatment Care
Laser treatments usually have a very low incidence of adverse events, but you will want to take certain precautions to ensure that you obtain the best results possible. You should avoid sun exposure for a set amount of time before and after your treatment. It’s also important to provide us with your complete medical history, including any medications or supplements that you may be taking that could interfere with your procedure or recovery.
