Hair removal is a regular grooming task that both men and women deal with on an ongoing basis, starting at some point in their teenage years. There are many options available when it comes to hair removal, including shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, sugaring, epilators, and electrolysis. Each method works in its own way, providing various degrees of hair removal, including how long the results will last. People looking for a long-term solution for hair removal prefer laser hair removal due to its many benefits.
Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions for optimal results, however, each session is quick, with times varying based on the size of the area. Despite what many people think, laser hair removal can be mildly uncomfortable but is generally not a painful procedure, especially since the sessions are so fast. Unlike other methods of hair removal, laser hair removal does not cause ingrown hairs and no regrowth of the hair is required for repeat sessions, which is the case with waxing or sugaring. Best of all though, is that laser hair removal provides long-term results that can be permanent or only require minimal touch-ups at a later date.
Hair is a fact of life for everyone, although the growth varies from one person to the next. Hair can grow in a wide variety of colors and shades, from pale, white blonde to dark, jet black depending on a person’s genetics. It can also grow in various patterns and at varying rates, not just from one person to the next but even varying across different parts of the body.
Luckily laser hair removal can be used on any part of the body, only excluding the eyelashes. Other than those, any hair on any part of the body is fair game for laser hair removal, regardless of the length, amount of color. Laser hair removal is a great option for areas that are hard to reach, prone to ingrown hairs, painful to wax, or where the hair grows in really dark and fast, such as the bikini area, back, and upper lip. Laser hair removal can be done on both men and women, depending on the individual’s preferences and where they are looking to have hair removed from.
Laser hair removal is a popular method of hair removal for people looking for long-lasting results so they can avoid the regular hassle of shaving or the pain of waxing and plucking. For maximum results, your hair removal specialist will let you know the best way to prep your skin before your laser treatment and how to care for it following the procedure. After your laser hair removal, it is important to avoid picking or scratching at the treated area.
Your practitioner can provide you with recommendations on any options that are safe to use on the treated skin should it get itchy or dry. During the course of your hair removal treatment, avoid using any other method of hair removal in order to achieve the best results. It is also important to avoid the direct sun on the treated area for at least the first week and continue to apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 on the treated areas for the entire length of your laser hair removal treatments.
One of the main selling features of laser hair removal is the longevity of the results following a series of laser hair removal sessions. Generally speaking, people require multiple sessions to achieve maximum results, although how many treatments are needed will be different for each person. Results will vary from one person to the next, even with multiple sessions, based on the color and thickness of the hair, as well as how fast it grows and how it responds to the laser. Laser hair removal works by killing the root of the hair to prevent it from regrowing, however, it isn’t 100% guaranteed not to ever grow back.
Following the initial series of treatments, some patients find that the hair never grows back, while others find they need the occasional touch-up. Touch-ups can be months or even years apart.
