If removing unwanted body hair is one of your main cosmetic activities in Burnaby, then you may find many advantages of laser hair removal. Try to imagine smooth, hairless skin for months at a time and for some people, the results last for more than that. These amazing results are not just for your upper lip or chin, but for anywhere on your body that you have unwanted hair, except around your eyes. That means no more worry if your bikini line is clean or if you need to shave your armpits. You can rest assured that you look great, and when some pale and weak hair does start to grow back, you can just have a touch-up treatment to be hair-free again.
Laser hair removal targets the pigment in the hair follicle and destroys it. Most follicles cannot regrow hair after treatment, but some may grow thin strands that can be treated again. Unlike waxing, you do not need to wait for the hair to grow back to have a touch-up treatment.
Treatments can be done quickly and you can go back to work or other daily activities. The laser beam flashes for a fraction of a second, and the underarm area may only take 20 minutes. Larger areas such as the back, chest or legs may take longer.
Laser hair removal only works during the growth stage of hair. There are three main stages of hair growth, including resting, growing and falling out. As such, it will take multiple treatments at our office in Burnaby to make sure all the hair has reached the growth stage and been treated.
Lasers have been used for hair removal for the past 20 years and are approved by the FDA for permanent hair reduction. It is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S. because it has a high success rate for long-term results.
Another big advantage is laser hair removal saves you time and money. You no longer need to purchase hair removal creams, foams and tools nor do you need expensive spa treatments for waxing and other hair removal treatments. You can forget about plucking unwanted hair from your upper lip or chin.
