Laser hair removal is a convenient cosmetic treatment used to get rid of unwanted hair on the face or body. It involves the of a focused light beam that destroys hair follicles and their ability to grow hair in the treatment area.
1. What It Treats
A laser hair removal treatment in Phoenix can be used to remove hair from areas such as your face, chest, arms, underarms, back, and bikini area.
2. How It Works
We direct laser light at hair follicles, which are small areas of the skin that hairs grow from. The pigment in the hair follicles absorbs the concentrated light energy. This light energy is then converted to thermal energy, destroying or damaging the treated hair follicle. After your treatment, hair should not grow back for a long time, if ever.
3. Laser Hair Removal Benefits
Speed: The procedure is very fast, although the length of your treatment will be dependent upon the size of the target zone. For example, it will take longer for the removal of unwanted hair on your arms than from your upper lip.
Long-lasting results: In contrast to other types of removal methods like waxing and shaving, hair removed by the laser will not grow back until at least several months or years have passed. If it does grow back, it will be finer and less apparent.
4. Procedure And Preparations
Before deciding to perform your laser hair removal treatment, we will examine your skin and hair in the proposed treatment zone to decide upon the correct time to have it performed if it is a good treatment choice for you.
Avoid hair removal techniques like waxing and electrolysis for a minimum of one month in advance of your procedure. The laser needs the presence of a hair for focused targeting.
Your hair in the treatment area may need to be shaved down, or you may be requested to shave it prior to your treatment. Skin in the treatment area will be cleansed and we may apply a topical anesthetic. You and your practitioner will need to wear protective eye gear.
