Many women dream of saying good riddance to their razors. They want hairless legs, a perfect bikini line, and a smooth underarm without constant maintenance. Is this a dream of yours? If so, then laser hair removal is worth considering. We specialize in laser hair removal here at UniQ Laser. Here’s some info we think you should know about the procedure.
1. What Exactly is Laser Hair Removal?
The procedure involves exposing hair follicles to a laser beam. Heat from the beam singes the follicles, which destroys the hair and its root. Destroying the root prevents the treated strand of hair from returning. But human hair grows in cycles, so during treatment some hair is beneath the surface. This means more than one treatment is necessary to treat an area.
2. Are Results Permanent?
In some cases treatment permanently prevent future hair growth. But for others treatment provides permanent hair reduction. It’s common to require maintenance at least once a year. This is because changes in hormones and weight can cause new follicles to develop. Maintenance is needed to laser the newly developed follicles.
3. Will the Treatment Work for My Skin Tone and Hair Color?
Laser hair removal works on just about every type of skin. There are different types of lasers for different types of skin tones and hair colors. Red, blonde, and gray hair are the most difficult hair colors to treat. Generally, the darker the hair the better the results. But the treatment can work on all colors.
4. Is it Painful?
The procedure does slightly sting. It’s similar to a rubber band snap. The sting lasts only for as long as it takes the laser to target each follicle. The larger the treatment area, the more stings you’ll feel. You may have slightly irritated skin following treatment, but any pain should subside after your session is complete.
5. Are there Risks?
Eye damage is a risk when dealing with any type of laser. You and the technician performing treatment should wear goggles. The technician will place goggles over your eyes before beginning the treatment. Blisters, burns, and scars are risks as well. Burns, blisters, and scars aren’t normal, and indicate incorrect or improper laser use. Our technicians are highly trained to avoid risks and give you the best hair removal experience possible.
