Everyone wants to look their best. When you look in the mirror, you want to be happy with what you see looking back at you. This is one of the reasons why people are attracted to laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is very effective. It will leave you with long-term or permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal is also very quick. And after you go through your series of treatments at our office, you are not going to have to worry about wasting your time using manual hair removal procedures day in and day out. You can actually take your razor and chuck it in the trash after you have this procedure done.
It’s a good idea to get rid of some myths about laser hair removal. One of the biggest myths that people have is that the only way that you can have the procedure done is if you allow the hair in the treated area to grow out. And so, some people shy away from laser hair removal treatment because they don’t want to have a hairy face or a hairy body while they wait for treatments. However, the truth is that you can shave even the day of your laser hair removal treatments. It’s not going to affect how the treatments turn out. What you do need to avoid is plucking your hairs or using a waxing kit. That’s because plucking and waxing remove your hair follicles, and the treatment needs the hair follicles in order to be effective.
For laser hair removal to work, your hair follicles have to be healthy. The pigment of your hair is going to absorb the laser’s energy, similar to how a black t-shirt absorbs the energy from the sun on a warm day. That energy is then transmitted to the hair follicle, destroying it and rendering it useless. After a series of treatments, you are left with hair-free skin.
Laser hair removal is not a one-time deal. You will need to have multiple treatments in order to get the results you want. This is because your hair grows in a cycle. So, the hair follicles that you have that are active today are not the same ones that will be active a few weeks from now. Multiple treatments are needed in order to safely destroy all of the hair follicles, thereby ending or reducing the hair growth.
