Whether you are a man or a woman, you have probably pondered the inconvenience of removing unwanted body or facial hair more than once. Shaving your face or legs can be time-consuming and expensive, and we’ve all felt the pain inflicted by the knick of a razor. And when you try alternative methods, such depilatory creams or waxing, you may find yourself dealing with skin rashes or pain. All that, only for the hair to start growing back immediately.
You can say goodbye to the hassle by booking a series of laser hair removal treatments, which will gradually stop hair in the targeted area from growing. This method centres around the fact that melanin, or pigment, contained within the hair follicles attract and absorb light. Through targeted use of the laser, the hair follicle is damaged, and over time, it loses the ability to grow new hair.
Each treatment takes anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours, depending on the surface area being treated and the density and coarseness of the hair that is growing there. During sessions, a laser is guided over the targeted area. Before, during and after the treatment, your skin is cooled to minimize discomfort and to prevent damage to the skin cells.
Laser hair removal is permanent, which means you will no longer have to waste time and money on shaving or other short-term hair removal methods. At most, you might need a touch-up appointment about once a year.
