While body hair is barely noticeable on some people, others find themselves not so lucky. For some people, having a large body hair can make them feel insecure and severely decrease one’s confidence. Not only that, it will force you to have to commit to annoying and time-consuming shaving routines and painful hair removal methods.
While these hair removal techniques are effective, they only offer temporary results and are often times costly. Fortunately, there is a procedure that allows you to eliminate all unwanted body hair in one go with permanent results – laser hair removal.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal involves destroying hair follicles by exposing them to pulses of laser light, which results in the complete removal of unwanted body hair. Every year, thousands of people undergo laser hair removal in the US, making it one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the country.
Thanks to continued research, this procedure has become highly efficient and effective in hair removal. It has now become a common method that permanently removes unwanted hair without the painful and unsightly after effects of shaving and waxing.
After undergoing laser hair removal, you will never have to waste money on traditional hair removal methods again. The best part about it is, you can enjoy silky smooth skin all year round.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
One of the best things about laser hair removal is that it can be used anywhere on your body. The most commonly treated areas include the face, eyebrows, upper lip, arms, underarms, body, bikini line, Brazilian, and legs.
During the treatment, your skin is exposed to a highly concentrated energy that passes through the upper layer of the skin and targets the hair follicles. The energy is attracted to hair pigments, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. Once the hair follicle is destroyed, it will not produce hair again.
A laser hair removal treatment requires a series of sessions for the best results, but you will notice results soon after your first session. As the treatment progresses, you will notice a significant reduction of unwanted hair. It is imperative that you complete the entire treatment to ensure that you receive the highest degree of hair reduction.
The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
As mentioned earlier, laser hair removal can be performed anywhere on your body. This makes it one of the most versatile cosmetic procedures on the market. Here are some more benefits of this treatment:
The lasers used in this treatment are precise and focus only on targeted cells – in this case, hair follicles. This precision ensures that surrounding cells, tissue, and skin remain unaffected.
Laser hair removal is a very quick procedure. Each laser pulse only requires a fraction of a second, which means that it can treat several hairs at the same time. Small areas like the upper lip or eyebrows can be treated in a matter of minutes.
Most patients report significant hair reduction after just three sessions.
