Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses lasers to target and destroy the hair follicle. It will no longer be able to grow hair. Laser hair removal does not promise to permanently remove all hair, but it greatly reduces the amount of regrowth and leaves the skin smooth and clear for months or more than a year. If you spend too much time and money shaving, tweezing, waxing at home or having expensive salon treatments, laser hair removal may be your best option.
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures that is done in the U.S. today. It can be done on almost any part of the body, including chin, upper lip, back, chest, arms, under arms, legs and bikini line. Once the hair is removed, it will not grow back quickly and you can enjoy smooth skin all summer without touching a razor. Many people plan their treatments for during the winter, so they are ready when the weather starts to warm. After the treatment, you should not expose the treated area to direct sunlight for some time. Once you have had your initial treatment, you will only need touch-ups once or twice a year.
Some top advantages of laser hair removal are:
Speed – the treatment is quick. It may take just a few minutes to remove the hair on your upper lip or chin. For larger areas such as the back, legs and chest, it may take longer.
Safety – lasers have been used for more than 20 years to remove hair and new technology has made them even more efficient. You can rest assured that the treatment is time-tested and safe.
Saves time – you will no longer need to take time every few days to shave your legs, bikini area or pluck the unwanted hair on your face. Laser hair removal also removes the possibility of razor nicks and scratches that may cause scars.
Convenient – unlike waxing, you can shave between treatments. If for any reason you need a touch-up, but don’t have time to get one, you can shave because laser treatments can be done on shaved hair.
Precision – the lasers can target one hair without affecting the surrounding skin.
If, after consulting with our specialist, you decide laser hair removal will solve your unwanted body hair issues, we may recommend that you do not wax, pluck or have electrolysis for some time before the treatment date. This is because these procedures remove the follicle, which is needed for laser hair removal. You should also keep the treatment area out of direct sunlight prior to treatment. After treatment, your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn. This can be treated with cold compresses and over-the-counter anti-inflammatories. It will disappear in a few hours or a day and you can look forward to months of clear smooth skin. Contact Las Vegas Laser & Lipo, in Las Vegas, today to schedule your appointment.
