It is likely that you have heard about all of the benefits that can come from using lasers to get rid of unwanted hair on your body. However, you need to have as much information about the treatment as you can before deciding if it is right for you. Here are some of the most common questions that people ask about laser hair removal.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
This is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic treatments in the US. The process involves focusing the energy of a laser into the hair follicles in an area where you do not want hair to grow. The pigment in the hair follicles is going to absorb the energy and heat it to a point where the follicle is disabled. This will damage the hair follicle right at the root, which means that it will not grow again.
Are You a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Before you learn anything else about laser hair removal, you likely want to know who gets the best results and who qualifies for the treatment. It is likely that you have heard that individuals who have dark hair and light skin qualify for the treatment and get the best results. It is true that these individuals can qualify for the treatment. In the past, it was true that they got the best results. However, thanks to advancements in laser treatments, now individuals with a variety of hair colors and skin tones can benefit from the treatment.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will You Need?
It is not possible to give you an exact number here. The reason why this is the case is because your treatments and the number of treatments you need are determined by a variety of factors that are specific to you. Most of our clients need to visit us for a series of treatment sessions for optimal results.
Can You Shave in Between Treatments?
Many people confuse the treatment process using laser hair removal with waxing sessions. The amazing thing is that you can shave before and in between laser treatments. We actually encourage some of our clients to do this.
