For some people, getting ready to head to the office in the morning or to start their daily routine is a pretty quick deal. It may require taking a shower, brushing your teeth and fixing yourself up a little bit. However, for other people, getting ready takes a long time. One of the reasons why getting ready takes so long is because they have to get rid of a lot of unwanted body hair. These individuals spend a lot of time shaving, tweezing and waxing body hair. Individuals who are tired of wasting so much of their time getting ready for their day may want to consider laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is a great option for individuals who would like to target certain areas of their body to get rid of the unwanted hair. This is a very popular treatment for women who deal with hair above their upper lip or on their chin. In literally a matter of seconds, a laser will be able to target those hairs and destroy the hair follicle.
It is also great for dealing with hair in larger areas, like on the legs or back. Our technicians can target these areas and treat them in just a couple of minutes. You may have to come in for several treatments in order to get the best results, but when you compare the time that you will take to visit our office to how much time you have to spend shaving and waxing, you will see that it is well worth it.
It is important for you to understand that laser hair removal is not a permanent solution to getting rid of unwanted hair. Instead, it is a long-term option that will allow you to put away your razors and tweezers for a while. It kills the hair follicle, but over time, the hair follicle may return.
Before you come in for your laser hair removal treatment, you will have to avoid waxing and plucking the hair for up to six weeks. The reason why this is so important is because our technicians will use the light of the laser to target the dark hair follicle. When you pluck or wax unwanted hair, you temporarily remove this follicle. This means that there’s nothing for the technician to target. Shaving is okay before treatment, however.
Each individual will have different results from the laser hair removal. The best candidates for this treatment are individuals who have hair that is darker than their skin. As mentioned above, the light targets the dark follicle. Even though the best results are usually for those who have light skin and dark hair, individuals with other hair and skin colors can sometimes enjoy good results as well.
