What is Laser Hair Removal?
During a session, a professional emits concentrated light in the areas where hair grows. The light is absorbed in the follicles permanently disabling the hair follicle from producing more hair. Unlike waxing, which removes hair at the root but does not stop the growth cycle, and shaving, which cuts hair at the surface of the skin, laser hair removal kills the hair so it does not return, in most cases.
Once the process is complete, you can enjoy hair-free skin. A laser does not cause the ingrown hairs that result from shaving or the quick regrowth of hair from waxing. Women and men do not have to resort to messy creams or other temporary measures that offer smooth skin for only a short period of time.
Are Multiple Sessions Necessary?
At any one time, your body hair is at a certain stage in the cycle of growth. Since not all hair grows at the same rate, the experts at A Beautiful You Medical Spa recommend multiple laser hair removal sessions. The most effective laser treatments occur at the anagen (growth) stage, which affects only as much as 30 percent of hair at a given time.
The number of sessions you need depends on your body and the area of treatment. On average, four to six sessions are all that’s needed for one area. While many people report some discomfort, such as the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin, at A Beautiful You Medical Spa, we use new techniques and advanced cooling technology make the process virtually pain free, faster and easier.
