In laser hair removal, unwanted body hair is removed using lasers. There are certain areas of the body people may want treatment on, such as their underarms, back, or bikini areas. There is no permanent solution, but the results last longer than shaving or waxing. Most people need about six treatments of laser hair removal to see their desired results.
Photothermolysis is the process used to remove unwanted hair by laser. Cells with a lot of pigment are destroyed by laser heat. Due to its high pigment content, dark hair absorbs the most heat. As a result, hair cannot grow since it transfers heat to the hair follicles and destroys them. This procedure only works on hair follicles that are in their anagen stage, or growth stage. Due to the different stages at which follicles are in, most people need more than one laser treatment.
Laser hair removal is available to anyone with excess body hair. The procedure is usually cosmetic in nature. Your self-image or appearance may improve as a result. In addition, many people prefer not to shave on a regular basis.
People with thick, dark hair and light skin are most likely to benefit from laser hair removal. It is easier for the hair to absorb heat if the color of the skin contrasts with the color of the hair. Those with dark skin or red, black, gray, white, or blonde hair might not find it as effective.
There is a good chance you will need anywhere from six to eight laser hair removal treatments. There is usually a six- to the eight-week interval between sessions. By timing this correctly, more hairs in different growth phases can be captured.
After the first treatment, most people notice a 10% to 25% reduction in hair growth. Several months or years may pass before you see new hair growth from all your treatments. The effects of laser hair removal are not quite permanent for most patients but they can be sustained with maintenance sessions. The treatment may not be able to target all hairs during their growth phase. There will be some hair grow back, but it will be lighter and thinner than it was before.
It is true that laser hair removal causes discomfort, but it is typically much less painful than other forms of hair removal, especially waxing. Many people describe laser hair removal as feeling like a rubber band snapping against their skin. It is also important to consider the area being treated by the laser when it comes to how uncomfortable you may feel.
There are some treatment areas that are less painful than others. The thinner the skin, the more sensitive it tends to be, while the thicker the skin, the less uncomfortable it tends to be. Your provider at Keep Glowing Medical Spa will brief you on what to expect.
It is possible that your skin will be red, swollen, and a little painful after laser hair removal. Cold compresses can be used on the treated area. Avoid exposure to natural or artificial sunlight on the treated area. Laser hair removal is a procedure that requires no downtime so you can return to your regular schedule of activities right away.
If you have had laser hair removal, it is safe to shave afterward. The important thing is not to shave right away. Your doctor will require you to shave several days before your appointment to ensure your hair is the right length. If your hair follicles aren’t targeted by the laser, then even the best hair removal laser won’t be effective.
It’s best to wait several days after getting treated before shaving the treated area. Since every person’s body is different, it’s best to touch the skin to determine its sensitivity before shaving. Shaving too soon may irritate the skin even more, so wait three or four days after your treatment before shaving.
