Is It Worth Getting Laser Hair Removal?
While there are a lot of fads out there that make a lot of promises they don’t deliver on, laser hair removal does work and is worth it if you are sick of the constant cycle of shaving, waxing, and other temporary means of hair removal. This type of treatment is going to first thin the hair out, making it more manageable and after enough sessions, the hair will stop coming back completely.
If you are a person who wants to get rid of unwanted hair, this is a wonderful treatment option that you should absolutely consider. For many, it gives them back their time, reduces their hassle, and in the long run, actually saves them money.
How It Works
This type of treatment works by using a highly concentrated laser that targets only hair follicles. It heats the hair follicle beneath the skin, essentially stopping the cycle of hair regrowth at the source. The laser will not damage the skin around the hair but will destroy it, leaving you with smooth skin that won’t show signs of irritation as it does with other forms of hair removal.
What To Expect During Treatment
After your consultation, you will schedule a time to come in for your treatment session. The device will be used on the area or areas you want to have treated. The device will be applied to that area or areas for a time and then that’s it! The cycle of hair regrowth will be stopped at the source and after that, you can go on with your daily activities as you typically would. It really is that simple!
