Are you sick and tired of dealing with excess hair on your body? Maybe you are a woman with too much hair on her upper lip, or perhaps you are a man with an abundance of back hair. If this sounds like your situation, consider laser hair removal at our office.
Laser hair removal is a procedure that is designed to safely get rid of the unwanted hair that you have. Unlike shaving that simply cuts off the tip of the hair, laser hair removal addresses the hair follicle. That means that once the follicle is damaged, hair will not easily grow back in the same location. Laser hair removal is a quick treatment procedure that offers long-term hair removal and permanent hair reduction, in many cases.
When thinking about laser hair removal, we invite you to think about how it feels when you are outside on a sunny day wearing a black t-shirt. When you touch the t-shirt, you realize that it is warmer than other lighter pieces of clothing that you are wearing. This is because the color of the t-shirt is absorbing more energy from the sun than the rest of the clothing you are wearing.
In essence, the same principle is behind laser hair removal. The laser’s energy is focused on your skin. However, the energy is absorbed by your hair follicles because they are darker than your skin. The energy prevents them from producing more hair. When the follicle is targeted and can no longer produce hair, the pore that served as an opening for the hair follicle is closed up as well.
During the initial consultation with us, you’re going to be given some basic information about how laser hair removal works. An examination will be made of your skin and your hair type to determine how effective the treatment will be. While it is not necessary for you to allow your hair to grow in the days leading up to the treatment, it is recommended that you stay out of the sun.
Laser hair removal is a powerful tool. It will require multiple sessions in order to get the desired results. However, you will be left with smooth and healthy-looking skin.
