Laser Hair Removal Q&A
How Does Laser Hair Removal Compare to Other Hair Removal Options?
Laser hair removal is the longest lasting option available for hair removal. Shaving tends to be the least effective hair removal option since the hair generally grows back in a couple of days or less for most people. Waxing may last for a month or so, however, it tends to be painful and doesn’t last as long as laser hair removal does. Depilatory creams offer only slightly better results than shaving and often smell quite unpleasantly. Overall, laser hair removal is an easy and fast treatment. With its increased longevity when compared to other methods, most clients today feel that laser hair removal is the clear choice.
What Parts of the Body Benefit From Laser Hair Removal?
Virtually any area of the body with excess hair or undesired hair can be a potential area for laser hair removal. Most commonly, the areas addressed in laser hair removal treatments are the legs, under the arms, the upper lip/chin, and the bikini line. Any areas of concern can be addressed with the laser providers at Allure Laser & Med Spa to determine if those areas can be treated effectively.
How Does the Laser Work During Hair Removal?
The laser works by delivering a thin beam of very concentrated energy into the heart of the hair follicle. This energy will disrupt and destroy the hair follicle. The pigment inside the hair follicle will be shattered into many microscopic parts. Those tiny pieces of pigment are absorbed into the body and then quickly eliminated through normal bodily functions.
How Many Treatments Are Needed For Laser Hair Removal?
This varies considerably by person and the size of the area being treated. Because hair grows in cycles, the majority of clients will need to have multiple laser hair removal sessions. Generally, four sessions will be needed but this may vary. Sessions are usually scheduled about a month apart with a possible maintenance treatment in 6-12 months.
