Laser hair removal is becoming more popular, as women and men are ditching their razors for a more permanent solution. Laser hair removal is a revolutionary, long-lasting hair removal option that is ideal for light skin and dark hair. Be smooth without the need of waxing appointments or dull razors.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal utilizes a laser that pulses light energy, which identifies and destroys the melanin, or dark pigment, of the hair. The entire procedure will last depending on the size of the areas you want to be treated, taking anywhere from a matter of minutes to an hour. This treatment is ideal for large areas of the body because it targets multiple hair follicles at one time. Laser Hair Removal is an excellent solution to rid yourself of pesky hair on your legs, neck, arms, back, and breast. However, smaller areas including the upper lip may also be treated with laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal generally takes more than one session for optimal results. This procedure varies for each patient, so a customized plan will be made geared towards your goals. On average, there is an 80% reduction of hair growth over four to six treatments. Some patients see complete hair removal, while others may notice little change in hair growth.
What to Expect with Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure, so no surgical incisions are required. It is important to undergo this treatment with board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Taylor and his qualified staff to ensure positive results. During the treatment, most patients experience a slight sensation from the laser, similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. If you have sensitive skin, we can provide a topical anesthetic to improve your comfort.
After your laser hair removal procedure, you may experience slight swelling or redness, but this is mild in nature and subsides within a few days. Laser hair removal is not for everyone, but for some, it is an excellent solution to get rid of unwanted hair with ease.
