Trying to get rid of unwanted body hair on your own can be extremely time-consuming, and that is why many people are now undergoing laser hair removal. This safe and effective procedure will obliterate your unwanted body hair in a matter of minutes, and the results often last for years. If you are tired of shaving every day or dealing with painful waxing sessions, then you might want to consider laser hair removal. With nothing more than pulses of laser energy, we can destroy your hair follicles and leave you with the smooth skin that you have always wanted.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
In order to great rid of your hair for a long period of time, you must disrupt the follicles. Even waxing won’t get rid of your hair for more than a few weeks, and those treatments can be very uncomfortable. During our laser hair removal treatments, we are going to bombard your hair follicles with intense pulses of light. The pigment inside the follicles absorbs the light, and that will delay future growth. Some of the hair should fall out during the first appointment, but we generally suggest scheduling at least a few treatments. When the hairs come back, you can head to our office for touch-up appointments.
What Happens during the Procedure?
The average laser hair removal treatment takes around one hour to complete, but your appointment might be longer if you want to have this procedure carried out on multiple areas of the body. When you first arrive at our practice, we are going to take you to a private room where you can get comfortable in one of our tables or chairs. The laser is nothing more than a handheld device that one of our team members will position just over your skin for short periods of time.
When Will I See Results?
Our patients typically need to schedule at least five separate treatments, and those appointments must be a few weeks apart. Even though you should notice some changes to the treatment site after the first or second treatment, the full results won’t be apparent for at least a few months. The existing hairs will continue to grow during that time, but the glands won’t produce new hair follicles once the hairs have fallen out.
