Many individuals wish they could just snap their fingers and magically see all of their unwanted body hair disappear. While there is no treatment that can get rid of unwanted body hair that quickly or effectively, laser hair removal is definitely the next best thing.
Laser hair removal is designed to get rid of unwanted hair in a semi-permanent way. Usually, several treatments are needed in order to get the best results. It is a semi-permanent treatment and a couple of sessions are needed because the hair on our body goes through different growth phases. When you come in for treatment, we can only target hair follicles that are in their active growth phase. However, the other hair follicles that are on your body are not treated at that time. We usually schedule treatment sessions a couple of weeks apart in order to get the best results.
Laser hair removal can be used to get rid of unwanted hair on many parts of the body. Are you tired of shaving your legs every couple of days in order to not feel embarrassed when wearing skirts or shorts? Laser hair removal may be right for you. Or are you tired of using waxing kits in order to get rid of those annoying chin hairs or an unwanted mustache? Laser hair removal can treat these areas of your body as well. If you are dealing with unwanted hair on your arms, back, bikini area, and in almost any other part of your body, this treatment can help you.
There is very little that you need to do in order to prepare for laser hair removal. In the weeks leading up to treatment, we ask that you do not pluck any of the hairs in the area that will be treated. This includes using tweezers or using waxing kits. We want the follicles to be intact in order to treat them with the laser. Also, before treatment we may ask that you do not use any creams or lotions in the area that will be treated.
We invite you to schedule a consultation. We would love to tell you more in depth about how this treatment works and what it can do for you. We will also tell you what you need to do to prepare for treatment and what kind of results you can expect. There is no way to tell you for sure right now how many sessions you will need. However, usually after examining your skin and hair, we can give you a rough idea of how many sessions will be needed to give you the best results.
