No one likes shaving. It’s a hassle, you can cut yourself and it can lead to razor burn. Worst of all, it has to be performed over and over as the hair continuously regrows itself. Fortunately, there are more effective alternatives that are available, like laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a simple, long-term solution to body hair that has helped millions of people regain control. It is offered by the experts at Dermatology Consultants of South Florida.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is exactly what its name implies; it’s a cosmetic treatment that uses laser energy to remove body hair from unwanted areas. Most commonly, this includes the arms, legs, bikini area, back and buttocks. The treatment usually takes only minutes, and there is little to no chance of the user experiencing any serious negative reaction.
The hair doesn’t disappear permanently. However, it can take months or even years before it returns. Often when it does finally return, the hair is finer and lighter-colored than it was before the treatment, which is often considered a secondary benefit of the treatment.
The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal
During a session, a trained professional targets the patient’s hair follicles with a laser of a specific frequency, causing the death of the individual hair. The laser is finely tuned to avoid causing too much discomfort or doing any damage to the area around the follicle. The sensation is generally described as a tiny shock or warm poke and is well-tolerated by the vast majority of patients.
Who Can Laser Hair Removal Help?
Laser hair removal is right for anyone that has problem areas they would like to take care of semi-permanently. It is a low impact, non-invasive treatment that’s safe for anyone that does not have any specific skin conditions.
