What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses laser light to remove unwanted hair. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, because it’s safe, effective and long-lasting. It’s important to be sure that your treatment is done by someone who is highly skilled and trained in the procedure, to avoid scarring, burns or skin color change. At Beauty Refined you can be assured that your laser hair removal will be done safely, by highly trained professionals, providing you with the best results possible.
The treatment works by targeting melanin – which is responsible for skin color and helps determine how dark your body hair will be – with pulses of intense light. This destroys the root of the hair without damaging surrounding tissue or skin pigment. You can expect long lasting results after just a few treatments, depending on your individual needs and goals.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
If you are tired of shaving, waxing, using depilatory creams, laser hair removal can free you from having to use temporary methods so you can have silky, smooth skin all the time. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from laser hair removal:
- Treatment sessions are fast – usually 60 minutes or less
- Can be used on any area of the body except eyelashes
- Leaves skin softer, smoother and sexier.
- Can be used on small or large areas with precision.
- Very cost effective in the long run
- Long term solution for hair removal
- Prevents ingrown hairs that cause unsightly bumps on your skin.
Hair Removal Procedure
Before your appointment you will be asked to avoid waxing or plucking in the area you are wanting permanent removal from for 4-6 weeks. This is so the light from the laser can target the hair root easily. You will be placed in a private, sanitized room. The area to be treated will be cleansed and a numbing cream may be applied to your skin. You will be given eye protection to wear to avoid any damage to your eyes during the treatment.
Dr. Tantawi, or one of his professional technicians will set the laser controls according to the thickness, color and location of the skin. The laser will be passed back and forth over the skin.
The laser emits a pulsating light that targets the hair follicle. You may feel slight discomfort, somewhat like being snapped lightly with a rubber band. After the treatment, a cooling gel and anti-inflammatory cream is applied, to prevent swelling and ease any discomfort you might feel. It is important to wear sunscreen on any areas that have been treated.
Hair follicles can take a few days to a week to shed after the treatment. It will take multiple sessions done 4-6 weeks apart to have the best results. You may also need to have a few sessions over the course of a year to curb regrowth.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQs
No, it cannot, but after the initial multiple sessions that are required, you can have no regrowth by having a few maintenance sessions a year.
It can seem expensive in the beginning, but if you consider the convenience and the cost of waxing, shaving and depilatories over time, it is a much less expensive and less time consuming way to have smooth, hair free skin.
