Are you tired of shaving and waxing away unwanted hair? If so, you are not alone. These practices are time-consuming and can leave your skin irritated in the form of ingrown hairs, bumps, redness, and sometimes, acne. Thankfully, laser hair removal is an alternative option to eliminate hair long-term for smooth, silky skin. Read on to learn more about your laser hair removal treatment at Straith Clinic and what to expect.
Who is a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Individuals with dark hair and lighter skin tones will see the best results from laser hair removal. This is because the laser focuses its light on the pigment within the hair and will not have pigment within the skin competing for it. Those with blonde or white hair are not good candidates, as they lack the pigment necessary for treatment. As always, the best way to determine if this treatment is right for you is through a consultation appointment at our office.
Laser hair removal can be used on almost any area of the body including the neck, sideburns, chin, upper lip, underarms, chest, back, bikini area, small of back, legs, arms, fingers, and toes!
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Laser hair removal treatments are usually done in a series, with 4-6 separate treatments needed 3-6 weeks apart. This is because hair grows in a cycle and the laser is only effective in certain active stages of hair growth. The treatment will result in a reduction of hair- most patients see an 80% reduction in growth. While results may not be permanent, they will be long-lasting and may only require maintenance treatments a couple of times.
