Shaving is a challenge, especially if it’s something that needs to be done multiple times a week. If your skin is showing damage because of shaving, it may be time to think about a better solution. One solution that has attracted the attention of many is the use of lasers to remove unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is not designed to permanently remove the hair on your body, but it will remove or significantly reduce hair for a long period of time. When the hair grows back, it’s often thinner and lighter, and there is often less of it. This is a good thing. Laser hair removal is able to produce unbelievably positive results without the negatives that are attached to manual forms of hair removal, such as shaving, waxing and tweezing.
Laser hair removal works by using the energy produced by the laser and directing that energy at the hair follicles in your skin. The energy emitted by the razor is absorbed by your hair. This is because your hair has a high level of pigment. The pigment turns your hair into a conductor for the energy. The energy goes straight to the hair follicle and safely damages it, thereby preventing future hair growth.
This treatment is perfect for individuals who are dealing with the adverse effects of shaving and other manual methods of removing unwanted hair. Laser hair removal treatments are not a one-time deal; it will take a series of treatment sessions to achieve the desired results. This is because the lasers can only affect the hairs that are in the growing stage. The laser’s energy is only effective when it is directed at hair follicles that are alive. So, you will need to have multiple treatments that synchronize with your body’s cycle of producing new hair.
With that being said, the treatments are convenient. Clients simply come to our office, receive the treatment and then return to their everyday activities. This is a suitable treatment for people with busy schedules and lifestyles, as the sessions are relatively quick and there is virtually no downtime involved.
