Laser hair treatment is a popular method for removing unwanted facial and body hair. It has many advantages over other methods like tweezing, waxing, or threading because it’s non-invasive, fast, and long-lasting. If you research, you’ll find that most people who undergo laser hair removal treatment see permanent results after just 4 to 6 treatments!
Laser hair removal is fast.
Laser hair treatment is fast. This is a big deal because it means you can return to your life faster.
When you shave, you must wait for your skin to regrow all of the hair before you can shave again. If you want to remove some pesky hairs from your legs or bikini area, this process might take weeks.
When waxing, the hair has to be long enough for the wax to grab onto—so each time you go in for a waxing appointment, there will be more stubble than last time. You’ll need multiple sessions before that stubborn patch of fuzz is gone forever (if it grows back at all).
Electrolysis takes even longer than laser treatment because every single follicle has to be treated individually with electricity—which may sound like torture now but will save you money later when they are gone!
Laser hair removal is effective.
Laser hair removal treatment is most effective for people with light skin and dark hair.
It’s also a good option if you have coarse or curly hair or have tried other methods of removing unwanted body hair without much success.
For the best results, it’s essential to see a board-certified dermatologist who specialises in laser treatments. These dermatologists have been trained on the safety and effectiveness of lasers and will know how to customise your treatment plan based on your individual needs.
- Treatments are spaced about 8-12 weeks apart for optimal results.
- After 4 to 6 treatments, you should see an 80% reduction in the amount of hair that grows back in the treated area.
- If you stop treatment before you achieve permanent results, your hair will grow back within six months or less. You may need more treatments to get it entirely removed again. If you acquire permanent results with fewer than ten treatments, this is called “early finishers” and most likely won’t occur again!
Many areas of the body can be treated with laser hair treatment.
It is a procedure that uses a laser to remove unwanted body hair. It can be used on many body areas, including the face, arms, legs, chest and back. The most common areas are:
- Bikini line
- Upper lip
Who can see maximum results?
It is not recommended for people with dark skin due to increased scarring risk. Also, if you have a history of keloid scars (raised bumps), you should not undergo this treatment because they can become irritated and inflamed during laser hair treatment sessions.
It works best on people with dark hair and light skin. People with light hair and dark skin should consider electrolysis, which uses a needle to break down the follicle to remove the hair root permanently. For those with lighter skin tones who have light hair, laser hair treatment may not work well because there isn’t enough melanin in their strands for the laser to target them effectively.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get it done—it just means that your technician will need to use more energy than usual.
