It cannot be much fun to go and get waxed every month. Sure you get used to the pain after a while but waxing isn’t for everyone and it comes with its own set of risks. In-grown hair, sensitive skin, and rashes –these don’t happen to everyone every time but they are still a reality. Then again, if you choose to shave of your unwanted hair, they grow that much quicker, and who likes that stubble when that happens?Not one at the top of our mind.
Traditional hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, plucking/tweeting, sugaring, and stringing provide only temporary results — some for fewer than 24 hours. Within hours or possibly days, you are back at it again, hunched over a magnifying mirror to tweeze out facial hair, running a razor over tender skin, or enduring painful waxing. To make it worse, these methods can often stimulate hair growth, thereby making your efforts counterproductive!
Instead of wasting time on all this, why not opt for a simple solution – Laser hair reduction.
Why choose Laser treatments?
Lasers remove hair for good, giving you a long-lasting and even permanent result. In only a few treatments,you can rid yourself of the unwanted hair that has bothered you for so long in an effective way.
Laser has another advantage, and that is that you NEVER AGAIN have to let the hair grow out a few days before your treatments in order to get it to work, as you do with the other methods.
How does it work?
Contrary to popular belief,hair removal lasers are not dangerous. They emit a light at a specific wavelength that is known to be absorbed by the pigment (color) in the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. The light is converted to heat energy, which in turns disables the hair follicle so that it will not produce another hair. It does not affect the surrounding skin as it targets the darker pigmentation of the hair follicle.
How long does a single treatment take?
A number of factors determine the length of time for a treatment. Generally, the professional will go as slowly or as fast as is comfortable and appropriate for each client. The size and “topography” of the area being treated also factor in the time required, as does the amount of preparation.
As a general rule, legs and backs take an hour to an hour and a half, while an upper lip or the tops of ears may require eight to 10 minutes. The front of the neck or underarms can take as little as 20 minutes.
Why does it take numerous sessions?
Hair grows in repeating cycles, and only in the actively growing phase does the hair contain enough pigment to absorb sufficient energy to disable the hair follicle. When hair is in the dormant phase, it has little or no pigment, and it cannot absorb the laser light. With each session, the hair follicles with actively growing hair are disabled and then a few weeks later, some of the dormant hair will have moved into the actively growing stage, and you will come in for a treatment to disable those. As this cycle gets repeated, you experience increased reduction of hair.
Does it hurt?
A fair question that has bothered everyone at some point, andin all fairness,you may experience a small but manageable sensation that can be described as a “pinch” or a “zap”. Most of the former waxing, stringing and electrolysis clients report that the discomfort is far less than those methods of hair removal. Also, stress, fatigue, caffeine, your menstrual cycle and pain tolerance may also influence the level of comfort with the “zap” that you feel.
Compared to the other methods of body hair removal, laser treatments truly seem like a boon. So stop procrastinating, and bid adieu to unwanted body hair with laser hair removal.
