Think a chemical peel is just for exfoliation? Think again. This versatile procedure can help deal with several common skin complaints.
You’ve likely heard about laser hair removal and how it can eliminate unwanted hair. You might even have some friends or family members who have undergone the treatment. They love the way it has improved their quality of life. So now you’re asking yourself if laser hair removal is right for you. With this innovative approach to hair removal, you may be able to throw away your razor for good.
Laser hair removal works because it disables the hair follicles in the treated areas, preventing them from growing hair in the future. The lasers focus on the pigment in the hair cells that reside in the follicle. As a result, the follicle is damaged and will not produce hair for a very long time, if at all.
Even though laser hair removal is not a completely permanent solution, it will drastically minimize hair growth to the point that you might be able to stop shaving altogether. Painful waxing and irritating creams can be left in the past.
This treatment can be performed on almost any part of your body. If you have large patches of hair that you want to remove, laser hair removal can do that for you fast. It can also address smaller and more delicate areas like your underarms, your bikini line or your face. When you come in for your consultation, you can learn more about which areas can be effectively treated with this approach.
Our specialist will take every step necessary to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. Most people compare it the sensation to nothing more than having a rubber band snapped against your skin. If desired, our provider may provide numbing options prior to your treatment. With laser hair removal, you will need to have multiple treatments in order to get the desired results. The more treatments you receive, the less unwanted hair you will see.
With the state-of-the-art laser technology used at our office, almost any patient in generally good health makes a good candidate for this treatment. If you are unsure if this approach is right for you, we can help you find out during your initial consultation.
