Laser hair removal has caught on for a number of reasons, but chief among them may well be convenience. Although the process actually takes a few scheduled treatments before hair completely stops growing, you may see the results you’re looking for more quickly than you would with waxing or other techniques.
There is usually a little bit of redness and swelling initially after treatment, but goes away quickly and is generally far less of a hindrance than the irritation and soreness resulting from waxing, or the itchy stubble that occurs when shaved hairs start to grow back.
The list of convenient and pain-free methods of hair removal is a lot shorter than the list of hasslesome, painful, inconvenient, tedious and imperfect methods of hair removal. Shaving gives you that unpleasant stubble a day later, waxing may hurt less and less each time you have the procedure done, but it still hurts, and creams and gels can be ineffective and even allergenic.
Laser hair removal makes use of Syneron Candela’s GentleMax Pro. It is safe for all skin types, especially darker skin where there are typically fewer options.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light that absorbs in the melanin of the skin which damages the hair follicle therefore prohibiting new hair growth. Keep in mind that multiple sessions are required in order to achieve the desired result. We typically recommend 6 sessions for each area with no waxing or tweezing in between treatments. For our female laser patients, we’d like to advise you that you are most sensitive the week of your menstrual cycle. In order to keep discomfort at a minimum, we suggest scheduling your appointments accordingly.
