In a warm and sunny area like West Palm Beach, a treatment like laser hair removal is always a good idea. The excessive and unwanted growth of hair may be attributed to hormonal changes, supplements, medications or even certain diseases or conditions.
Regardless of the cause, unwanted hair growth is a frustrating experience for both women and men. It can lead you to feel embarrassed and uncomfortable in your own skin, and removing the hair can be expensive, frustrating, time-consuming and, worst of all, painful. Most hair removal techniques last for only a few days days until you must start the process all over again, but there is a better and more permanent solution: laser hair removal.
How Does It Work?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment that uses pulses of light to damage and disable hair follicles. The laser pulses short bursts of light at a high intensity, effectively enabling it to target hair follicles on almost any part of your body without damaging your skin.
Before your treatment session, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area to minimize any potential discomfort. There is no downtime whatsoever, so you can get back to your normal activities as soon as you step out of our office. Any redness or swelling that you may experience will be minimal and will disappear on its own within a few days.
Hair grows in cycles, so in order for laser hair removal to be effective and remove all the unwanted hair, treatments need to be completed during the active hair growth phase. Follicles grow at different rates, so not every hair is in the active phase at the same time. As a result, multiple sessions will be needed to reveal your smoother, hair-free skin.
The treatments are most often spaced at four to eight week intervals and most patients will need four or five sessions to achieve the best results. Because laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicle, it tends to work best on lighter skin tones and darker hair. The majority of patients that receive treatment see results and are extremely happy.
