Shaving is a tried and tested method for removing unwanted body hair, but it rarely produces results that last long. In contrast, waxing usually gets rid of hair for up to three weeks - but it can also be really painful.
On the other hand, laser hair removal can give you longer-lasting results than traditional hair removal methods - painlessly and with no downtime.
Read here to learn more about laser hair removal.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
In order to remove unwanted hair and prevent the growth of new hair, laser hair removal heats and zaps at the hair follicles to stop them from growing back. It can be done on the legs, back, underarms, or face. Unlike waxing or shaving, this causes the hair follicles to go dormant for a much longer time.
According to the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA), laser hair removal effectively reduces your hair growth by about 70%. The hair that grows back is also much thinner and less visible, resulting in smoother skin and reducing the risk of ingrown hair.
The number of sessions needed to get the results you want can vary from patient to patient as each one has different needs and goals. On average, however, people typically need six to eight laser hair removal treatments spaced out every four to eight weeks for the best results.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Here are the other benefits of getting laser hair removal:
Compared to routine plucking, shaving, or waxing, laser hair removal is simple, painless, and effortless.
There’s less risk of developing ingrown hairs when you zap hair follicles at the root.
The laser precisely locates and eliminates unwanted hair without causing any harm to the surrounding skin.
It’s safe and effective for all skin types and tones.
Does It Hurt?
Most patients who have tried laser hair removal don’t really find it painful, though each pass may feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin. However, our laser hair removal device is equipped with an extremely cold tip for the patient’s maximum comfort throughout the treatment.
For the best results, it’s best to observe the appropriate aftercare:
Apply cool compresses or ice packs to the treated area/s to alleviate any swelling or irritation.
Avoid excessive UV exposure and always use sunscreen with SPF 30 minimum.
Avoid perfume, deodorant, extremely hot showers and saunas for a few days post treatment.
