If you live in Coral Springs, you may want to be beach-ready all the time. If you shave, pluck or wax away your unwanted body hair, this may not always be possible. Laser hair removal may be your best option for smooth, hairless skin. Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that is very popular for men and women in the US. It can permanently reduce unwanted body hair and save you time and money.
During this treatment, the laser is directed at the hair follicle, and the hair follicle absorbs the light waves as heat and is destroyed. The laser energy passes through the surface of the skin without damaging it. The melanin or pigment in the follicle absorbs the heat. Since hair grows in stages, it usually requires multiple treatments to remove the hair completely from a specific area. The laser is only effective during the growth stage.
This treatment is suitable for just about anywhere on the body except around the eyes. The most common places where laser hair removal is used are:
• Upper lip and chin
• Bikini line
• Arms and legs
Once the follicle is destroyed, the hair will lessen in about a week. If some hair does grow back, it will be pale and weak and can be removed immediately. Unlike with waxing where you need to wait for all of the hair to grow in before you can have another treatment, laser hair removal can be done at any time.
Many people in Coral Springs spend hours each week shaving, plucking and otherwise removing unwanted body hair. With laser hair removal, you are free from constantly worrying about being beach-ready. You also save money in the long-run because you no longer need to buy shaving supplies, creams or have expensive salon waxing treatments.
