Some people have done everything from razors to waxing in an effort to rid themselves of body hair. Unfortunately, these results are only temporary, which means the hair will need to be removed again shortly after the previous session. Laser hair removal is a non-surgical treatment that uses laser light pulses to permanently destroy hair follicles to produce smooth and attractive skin.
Razors and waxing strips can cause damage to the hair follicles and surrounding skin. Knicking yourself with a razor is just as irritating as a papercut, and the blemishes that comes from waxing thick hair or sensitive areas is painful. Laser hair removal is not considered a painful procedure and undergoing it means you no longer have to worry about either of these side effects since the hair follicles themselves are permanently removed.
When you manage to shave or wax without causing any damage, the hair still grows back quickly, creating bristles of prickly hair and rough patches of skin. Laser hair removal can help you achieve smooth, hairless skin without having to worry about continuously shaving or waxing every couple of days to maintain a smooth appearance.
Unwanted hair causes many men and women to avoid articles of clothing they might otherwise wear. If a woman didn’t have time to shave that morning, she might feel uncomfortable wearing anything revealing on a hot day. If a man is embarrassed about the amount of arm hair he has, he might have to stick to long sleeves. Swimsuits, loose-fitting t-shirts, shorts; all of these options are problematic when you are dealing with unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal can open up your wardrobe to all of the styles you always wanted to flaunt.
Because laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure performed on an outpatient basis, you will be able to return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment.
Laser hair removal offers long-lasting to permanent results that will leave your skin looking smooth and healthy.
Treatments are comfortable and minimally painful and are often described as though rubber bands were snapping against the skin. An anesthetic cream can be applied to individuals with sensitive skin.
The cost of your laser hair removal treatment will depend on the area being treated, hair color, and skin type. Dr. Sand will provide you with a cost sheet to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Dr. Sand will examine your skin to determine the best approach for your laser hair removal treatment during your consultation.
During your treatment, the laser will target the hair follicles just below the surface of the skin with highly concentrated light. The light energy is transformed into heat, destroying the hair follicles and leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Laser hair removal can be used to treat the following areas:
Patients who wish to eliminate unwanted body or facial hair can benefit from our laser hair removal treatment. While patients with darker hair may have higher success rates, patients with lighter body hair can also achieve good results.
With the new technology that has become available, your desired result can be achieved in two to three sessions. This is much better than previous years when patients could need up to eight sessions.
Your laser hair removal treatment can last between a few minutes and half an hour. If you are having a small area done, then a few minutes is all you need, but an entire back can be done in the 30-minute period.
