Very few people would say they actually enjoy the process of shaving. It is something that they have to do because they do not want embarrassing hair growth on their body. Or if they do not mind the hair growth, they know that they need to get rid of it in order to look professional or for other reasons. We would like to tell you about a way that you can save time and get better results when it comes to hair removal. We would like to tell you how you can diminish unwanted hair for good with laser hair removal.
How Does the Treatment Work?
In order for you to benefit from laser hair removal, it is good for you to know how it works. This is going to help you make a balanced decision when it comes to determining if the treatment is right for you. It is also going to help you feel satisfied with the results that you get.
It is surprising to some people to learn that not all of the hair on their body is actively growing. The hair on the body actually goes through different growth phases. In order for the energy from the laser to disable the hair follicles, the hair follicles have to be going through an active growth phase. This means that we need to have you visit us for several treatment sessions in order to use the laser to damage the hair follicles. We will discuss how often these treatments will need to be performed when you visit our office. Usually, our patients return every few weeks.
We are happy to perform laser hair removal treatments year round. However, we have seen several benefits that come to individuals when they have their treatments performed in the fall or winter. For one thing, this is a time of year when it is easy for a person to stay out of the sun. You cannot have a tan in order to qualify for laser hair removal. Second, if you were to start your treatments in October or November, you would likely be completely finished with your laser hair removal sessions by March or April. It is usually by this time when you are anxious to put on some shorts or other clothing that may reveal areas that you normally have to shave.
Are You a Good Candidate?
You may have heard people say that only individuals who have dark hair and light skin get good results with laser hair removal. This is something that was true when laser hair removal was first being used. Nowadays, individuals with a variety of hair colors and skin types are able to enjoy benefits from this treatment. This is because there are different lasers and techniques that can be used to help people.
