Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
One of the most significant benefits of laser hair removal is how quick it is. Unlike other hair removal methods like waxing or threading, laser hair removal only takes a few minutes per session. You can come in for a session during your lunch break and return to work feeling refreshed and confident.
Laser hair removal is also incredibly precise. The technology we use at Rejuvalase targets the hair follicles directly, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. This precision means that the treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and tones.
Ingrown Hair Prevention
Another advantage of laser hair removal is that it prevents ingrown hairs. Shaving and waxing can lead to painful ingrown hairs that can cause discomfort and even infection. Laser hair removal removes the hair from the root, preventing ingrown hairs from forming in the first place.
Permanent Hair Removal
Perhaps the most significant benefit of laser hair removal is its long-term solution to hair removal. After a few sessions, you'll start to see a significant reduction in hair growth. With each session, hair growth becomes less and less until it eventually stops altogether. This permanent solution means that you can finally say goodbye to razors and waxing appointments for good.
It's worth noting that most areas require six to eight sessions minimum to achieve the desired results. However, once the sessions are complete, you'll have a permanent solution to hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal Process
During the laser hair removal process, the near-infrared laser light is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The pigment, which is also known as melanin, is found in the hair shaft and follicle and is responsible for giving hair its color. When the laser energy is absorbed by the melanin in the hair, it is converted into heat energy.
The heat energy is then transferred to the surrounding cells, which damages the hair follicle and prevents it from growing hair. The duration of each laser pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue. The system's patented contact-cooling hand piece also helps to protect the skin by cooling it during the laser energy delivery.
It's important to note that laser hair removal is most effective on hair that is in the active growth phase, which is why multiple sessions are required. Hair grows in cycles, and only hair that is actively growing at the time of treatment can be targeted by the laser. As a result, most areas require 6-8 sessions minimum to achieve optimal results.
The laser hair removal process is precise and can be customized to target specific areas of the body. The size of the treatment area and the thickness and color of the hair will determine the duration of each treatment session. Laser hair removal is safe for all skin types and tones, but it may not be suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions or those taking certain medications.
What is the sensation during a laser hair removal treatment?
During the Laser Hair Removal treatment, the handpiece cools and soothes the skin as it moves along the area being treated. While delivering the pulse of light, some patients may feel a mild pinching or stinging sensation.
Generally, no local anesthesia or pain medication is needed, but individuals who are treating sensitive areas may prefer to use a topical anesthetic.
What happens after a laser hair removal treatment?
After Laser Hair Removal treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities, but the treated area may appear slightly red and swollen. It is advisable to use sunscreen on any treated areas that may be exposed to the sun. Your laser specialist may also recommend a specially formulated skin care product or prescribe a skin care regimen tailored to your skin type.
Around three to seven days post-treatment, you may observe some hair regrowth. However, most of these hairs are actually shedding as a result of the treatment and will not grow back.
During the intervals between treatments, it is not advisable to wax or pluck your hair, but shaving is acceptable.
Where can laser hair removal treatment be used?
Laser Hair Removal is a versatile treatment that can be used to target hair on almost any part of the body. For women, common areas of treatment include the legs, arms, underarms, upper lip, chin, and bikini line. Men often opt for Laser Hair Removal on the back, chest, and neck.
The treatment can be customized to suit individual needs, which means that even the most sensitive areas can be treated safely and effectively. In fact, many patients opt for Laser Hair Removal for hair removal in sensitive areas, such as the nipples, buttocks, and genital area.
Laser Hair Removal can also be used to target unwanted hair in smaller areas, such as the ears, nose, and fingers. It is important to note that the size and color of the hair follicles can affect the success of the treatment. Patients with dark, thick hair typically see the best results, while those with light-colored hair may require additional treatments.
