Are you tired of shaving, waxing, and/or tweezing your unwanted hair? If so, laser hair removal may be a good option for you. It can quickly and effectively get rid of unwanted hair on your face and body. Let’s dive deeper into how laser hair removal works and how long you can expect each treatment session to take.
The Laser Hair Removal Process
A laser hair removal treatment involves a certified laser technician placing a laser on top of the skin in the area with the hair you’d like to remove. The laser will stretch and pull the skin and allow the energy source to target the hair directly.
When this occurs, the hair follicles will sustain damage from the laser’s heat and make it difficult for the hair to return. During the treatment, you may experience minor pressure and a light sting. Fortunately, this discomfort is very tolerable, only present for a short while, and eased with the patented cool tip of the laser.
After each laser hair removal session, you can expect about 15 % of your hairs to be removed. We recommend that most patients visit our office for 30 to 45 minute laser hair removal sessions every 4 to 6 weeks over a period of several months. This frequency is usually enough for patients to achieve their desired results.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
If you opt for laser hair removal, you can reap a variety of benefits. The most notable benefit is the permanent removal of unwanted hair. You can say goodbye to shaving, waxing, bleaching, and other hair removal methods and hello to smooth, hairless skin.
Since laser hair removal is a quick treatment and comes with no downtime, you can easily fit it into your busy lifestyle. Regardless of whether you’d like to remove hair on your face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, chest, or any other part of your body, laser hair removal may be the exact hair removal solution you’ve been longing for. Dr. Schalit recommends it to both men and women of various skin types.
