Each time we reach for a depilatory or a razor, we’re all probably thinking the same thing. “Why can’t I just get rid of unwanted hair once and for all?” By using a laser hair removal tool, our esthetician can begin a program to reduce the amount and thickness of body hair drastically.
What Can Laser Hair Removal Do for Me?
Laser hair removal in Phoenix can remove hair on the face, neck, body, legs, arms, and the genital area. The treatment takes several sessions or more, depending on the thickness and composition of the hair shafts. The ideal candidate who will probably take the fewest sessions for good results have these characteristics in common.
- Dark hair
- Thick hair
- Hair that has previously been shaved
- Those who wish permanent hair removal
- Those who have realistic expectations
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
After you lie down on the treatment table, if you wish, the esthetician will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area. This cream may make the process less uncomfortable, but it is up to you whether to use it. Next, you will be given a pair of goggles that will protect your eyes from the light of the lasers.
The handheld laser device both burns away the hair shafts with light and, at the same time, emits puffs of cold air to minimize the discomfort. The process takes just a few minutes. You will return for more sessions to reduce the number of hair follicles as much as possible. If you want a large area, such as your legs treated, you will return for more sessions depending on your hair, its thickness, and how your skin responds to treatment.
