Taking care of unwanted hair constantly can not only be time-consuming but also expensive. Scheduling waxes, plucking hairs, shaving and creams can all really add up over time and become a hassle. Laser hair removal eliminates those burdens and can leave you with smooth skin minus the unwanted hair. If you’re interested in seeing that unwanted hair is gone for good, Allure Laser & Med Spa in Tinley Park, IL can help.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that gets rid of unwanted hair using laser technology that is both safe and effective. We use Cutera laser technology that can eliminate unwanted hair from different parts of the body on all skin types. It targets the growth cycle of hair, making it last far longer than any other treatment available.
A concentrated laser is used to target the hair follicle beneath the skin. The laser uses energy to break apart the pigments in the hair, rendering the cycle of regrowth. Those pigments are then absorbed by the body and expelled by the natural processes your body already does on its own. It takes the hair out at the source, giving you lots of time in between treatments.
As of now, it is the most effective and long-lasting treatment available to get rid of hair. It can eliminate hair on the legs, bikini line, under the arms, on the face, and more! It is a no-brainer alternative to other treatments that remove hair and don’t last as long.
What You Can Expect
Laser hair removal is going to get you free of unwanted hair far longer than any other type of treatment. You can expect smooth skin free of unwanted hair that lasts. When you shave, the hair generally grows back in a couple of days. With waxing, you may get a couple of weeks free of that unwanted hair. The laser is going to give you lasting results!
One of our professionals apply the laser to the target area and remove the unwanted hair at the source. This is going to give long periods of time where you will see completely smooth skin! You won’t have to worry about irritated skin or little missed hairs either.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated
Because of the safety of this treatment, you can have unwanted hair removed anywhere on the body where you don’t want hair. The most commonly treated areas are the legs, the upper lip, under the chin, under the arms, and on the bikini line. However, any areas that are of concern to you can be treated with the laser after a consultation with one of our experts.
Many find that dealing with unwanted hair, particularly around sensitive areas is more problematic. The bikini area and under the arms are common areas that are treated. Sometimes there may be unwanted hair in other places that our experts will take a look at for you and let you know whether or not the removal of the hair will be effective.
How Does It Work?
The laser uses a concentrated, thin beam that targets the hair follicle itself. The energy emitted by the laser disperses and ultimately destroys the hair follicle, stopping the growth at the source. The pigments inside that hair follicle are then scattered and absorbed back into the body where they are then expelled by way of normal bodily functions.
The laser is so concentrated that it does not bother the skin around the hair and is instead directed just at the hair follicle. This makes this treatment much more effective. It is a simple treatment that gets rid of a big problem, making unwanted hair a thing of the past as well as all the other treatments that take more time and aren’t as effective.
Not only will you be free of your unwanted hair with this treatment, but you’ll also have a few more benefits as well. You will no longer have to worry about painful and unsightly razor burn. Your skin will be completely smooth, free of any irritation that other treatments can bring. Plus, it is completely painless unless plucking.
You will also save money in the long run since you won’t have to purchase any more expensive razors or creams or schedule any more uncomfortable waxing appointments. You are going to get that smooth, flawless-looking skin that you deserve without all the pain and hassle. You will have more time to do what you love without worrying about shaving.
Since you won’t have to schedule extra appointments or make time to deal with that unwanted hair, you are also going to save a lot of time. Time is precious and most people want to spend it doing what they love, not dealing with unwanted hair. These benefits and more are all apart of this treatment.
