Many people battle with unwanted hair on different parts of the body. For women, facial hair or persistent bumps on the bikini area from in-grown hair may be the reason to seek a solution. There are several methods of removing unwanted hair from the body such as waxing, shaving, electrolysis and the more recent treatment- laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is a safe and very effective way to remove unwanted hair. During the procedure, the rays of the machine are directed at the pigment within the hair follicle and over time, the hair is destroyed.
Some facts to keep in mind about laser hair removal:
There are different types of laser machines. Some are more effective than others.
The procedure works for most skin types, from fair skin to very dark skin.
You will require more than one treatment to get optimal results. Depending on the skin and hair type, you may require an average of 8 to 12 treatments.
The treatment is usually not painful, especially since most new laser machines have cooling devices that reduce the temperature of the area to be treated.
You may not see immediate results after the first few treatments. In most cases the hair will still be visible after treatment.
You will need to be fairly consistent with your appointments. The hair follicles on your skin are usually at different growth stages and so require regular, consistent treatment.
If you are considering laser hair removal please seek professional assistance. The procedure works very well for treating unwanted hair growth.
