Thanks to laser hair removal, there is a solution. This effective laser treatment will remove your unwanted hair for good.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Before you commit to the treatments, you may be wondering, “Is laser hair removal permanent?” We’re here to tell you that, yes, results can be permanent once you undergo the necessary treatments to stop hair growth in the treatment area permanently. Typically, patients need six treatment sessions with six to eight weeks between each to effectively destroy the hair follicle to no longer grow hair.
Determining the Right Number of Sessions for Permanent Hair Removal
The total number of sessions necessary for permanent results will vary among patients based on the coarseness of their hair and the size of the area they want to treat. Once the hair growth cycle has been inhibited, you will experience permanent, hair-free skin.
The best way to determine how many sessions you will need for permanent results is during an evaluation with one of our laser technicians, who will analyze your treatment area, skin color, hair color, and texture and provide you with a better idea of what you can expect.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an in-office hair removal treatment that uses laser light energy to target and destroy your hair follicles so that they no longer grow hair. The laser light is drawn to pigment, so once it targets the color in your hair follicle, it will destroy that follicle over time, rendering it incapable of new hair growth. You will be left with smooth, maintenance-free skin and won’t have to worry about at-home hair removal treatments again.
What Areas Can It Treat?
This treatment is designed to target and destroy hair follicles to prevent unwanted growth in any area of the body. There are some common areas that patients choose to treat based on their preference and their goals. These areas include the legs, the upper lip, the underarms, the back, the bikini area, and the arms.
If you have a specific area that you want to treat not listed, one of our laser technicians will evaluate your problem area and determine the best plan of action and help you achieve smooth, hair-free skin.
What Are the Benefits?
Laser treatments for hair removal have become popular for many reasons, one of them being the fact that they work. Not only is laser hair removal permanent, but it gives those who are tired of dealing with unwanted hair a solution that is not only effective but permanent. Once you undergo the necessary number of treatments to achieve permanent results, you will be blown away at just how many long-term benefits this treatment offers.
Shaving, waxing, and other forms of hair removal can lead to skin irritation. Ingrown hairs, bumps, inflammation, and redness are all par for the course when it comes to hair removal, but not with laser treatments. When you choose laser therapy to remove unwanted hair, you won’t have to worry about skin irritation due to at-home hair removal ever again.
It Will Save You Time and Money
Once your treatment areas stop growing hair, you won’t have to shave, schedule waxing appointments, or buy razors and shaving cream. Investing in laser treatments is an investment in your future budget because it will save you a significant amount of money that will no longer have to be spent on hair removal products and devices.
You will also save time, and never will you have to plan your shower routine around shaving or hair removal again. You also won’t have to schedule any more pricey waxing appointments to achieve your goals.
Appointments Are Quick
Not only is laser hair removal permanent, but the journey to get those permanent results is convenient. While the total number of sessions patients need to achieve desired results will vary based on their skin type, hair color, and hair texture, these treatments are quick.
Based on the size and number of areas you want to treat, you can be in and out of your appointment within 10 to 30 minutes. You can schedule your appointments as needed, and you won’t have to reorganize or reschedule your life to attend your treatment session.
Unwanted Hair Will Be Gone for Good
Permanent hair removal may sound like just a dream, but we want to let you know it is within your reach. Laser treatments can make your wish for carefree skin a reality. Once you commit to this process and experience all of its benefits, the only regret you’ll have is not beginning treatments sooner.
Laser Treatments: FAQ’s
How Should I Prepare for My Treatment?
Before your laser treatments, you should follow a few directives to ensure that you get the best results. The two primary directives include wearing sunscreen in your treatment area to prevent sunburn and irritation leading up to your appointment and refraining from removing unwanted hair in your treatment area right before your appointment.
During your initial consultation, one of our laser technicians will provide you with any additional details on preparing your skin for treatment. This treatment doesn’t require a lot of preparation, so you can easily schedule your appointment as soon as you’re ready to begin the process.
What Is the Aftercare Process Like?
While there is no downtime associated with laser hair removal, there are some ways that you can care for your skin post-treatment to ensure the best results. Avoid excess sun exposure in the days following your initial treatment, and be sure to apply high-quality sunscreen to your treatment areas to protect your skin from the damaging rays emitted by the sun.
Based on your treatment area, your laser technician may have some additional aftercare requirements, which she will provide on the day of your treatment.
What Do Treatments Feel Like?
One of the benefits of this treatment is that it is completely painless. When the laser light targets the hair follicles, it bypasses your skin and leaves it completely unharmed in the process. Laser light is attracted to pigment, so it will zone in on your hair follicle in a completely painless way. You won’t experience any side effects or pain during the treatment.
Can I Treat Multiple Areas During My Appointments?
Another benefit of this treatment is that you can target and treat multiple areas during treatment sessions. Some people want to treat both their legs and arms or a few other areas at a time. During your initial consultation, you can express your desires, and we will create a treatment plan that helps you achieve your hair-free goals as quickly as possible.
Am I a Candidate?
If you’re tired of shaving, waxing, or any other form of hair removal and want to be hair-free for good, you are most likely a candidate who will qualify for this treatment. Some factors affect whether a patient is eligible for treatment, including skin type, tone, hair color, and hair texture.
