Laser hair removal is efficient, affordable and available in most communities, often at medical spas. During the process, powerful light beams are directed at hair follicles to effectively “kill” them. Obviously, when the follicles are dead, you don’t have to worry about hair growing in that area again.
You will need to have multiple treatments because the body contains so many follicles. According to experts, the average patient will need three to seven treatments to get the desired result: permanent freedom from annoying and painful shaving, waxing and tweezing.
Preparation and Aftermath
Before laser hair removal, you should limit your sun exposure, possibly up to six weeks before your first appointment, to reduce the possibility of side effects. You will also want to forgo some other hair removal methods, such as waxing and tweezing.
After a treatment, you may experience some skin irritation. Usually, simply icing the area will provide relief. You will need to stay out of the sun and tanning beds until your skin has returned to normal.
A Beautiful You Medical Spa
Residents of Memphis, Tennessee can find the latest in laser hair removal technology at A Beautiful You Medical Spa. The skilled technicians there use the Soprano XL laser, which generates longer laser wavelengths that penetrate more deeply in the follicle, providing better results. This laser also works well on darker skin, something other laser types do not.
Laser hair removal is more affordable than the cost of “old school” removal items. The cost for five to seven treatments and touch-ups is actually less than the cost of razors.
Laser hair removal can either eliminate or greatly reduce hair growth on your face, torso, and legs. You will be delighted with the way your skin looks, and you can use all the time you spent shaving or waxing to take up a new hobby or simply sleep later. Laser hair removal equals freedom from the tyranny of stubble.
