Are you longing for smooth, hair-free skin? Try laser hair removal! Laser hair removal works well on areas such as the legs, bikini line, underarms, chin, and back, and is a convenient alternative to methods such as shaving, plucking, and waxing. But what are the benefits of laser hair removal?
How Laser Hair Removal Works
The laser emits a concentrated beam of light that selectively targets the pigment (color) at the root of the hair follicle. The pigment absorbs the laser energy, and the heat generated disables the hair follicle and prevents future hair growth.
What Are The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal?
Long-term Hair Reduction
The results of laser hair removal last for months in most cases, so it is a very effective way to achieve long-term hair reduction. It takes an average of 7 treatments to see the desired results, but patients will notice a significant reduction in hair after each laser hair removal session.
No Ingrown Hairs
Other hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, and plucking can cause painful ingrown hairs. However, there’s no need to worry about those ugly bumps with laser hair removal because the laser energy destroys the hair follicle, resulting in smooth, hair-free skin.
Most patients experience minimal discomfort during laser hair removal. The pulses of the laser feel similar to having a rubber band snapped against the skin. Advanced laser hair removal systems like the GentleMax Pro have a patented cooling system that cools the top layer of skin to minimize discomfort during treatment.
There is typically no downtime after laser hair removal. There may be mild redness and irritation after treatment, but this does not prevent patients from resuming normal activities.
If you are tired of shaving your legs or plucking chin hairs, laser hair removal can provide long term hair reduction with less hassle than traditional methods.
