Laser Hair Removal
Understanding Laser Hair Removal
Hair grows where we don’t want it to, and shaving isn’t always the best option. Laser hair removal can help you permanently get rid of unwanted hair, destroying 80 to 90% of hair follicles in the first treatment.
Pure Medical Spa’s hair removal treatments use lasers to heat the follicle and eliminate unwanted hair. There is minimal or no discomfort, and you’ll see results soon after your first appointment.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal destroys the hair follicle, which inhibits new growth—No more shaving, plucking, waxing, or threading.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
While the treatment works for all types of hair, the best laser hair removal involves dark hair with easily located follicles and fair skin. Blonde, white, gray, silver, and red hair are more difficult to remove. Also, avoid the sun – tanning can increase the risk of side effects, including pigmentation change.
The vast majority of people experience little to no discomfort. If you have sensitive skin, your treatment provider may apply a topical anesthetic.
Anywhere hair grows! Most men get hair removed from their chests and backs, while women most often get laser hair removal on their faces, legs, and bikini areas.
The treatment permanently destroys 80 to 90% of hair follicles which inhibits the growth of new hair. Because hair is at different stages of growth at the time of the procedure, some follicles may still produce hair, so follow-up treatments are advised for complete hair removal.
It depends on the area being treated. For example, hair on the upper lip can be removed in minutes, while the hair on the back or chest will take longer.
The laser creates heat which permanently damages or destroys hair follicles.
Laser hair removal can cause mild discomfort, which can be alleviated with an anesthetic cream. In addition, there can be a slight, temporary pigmentation change.
Most people experience hair loss within 2 to 3 weeks of treatment.
Shave closely within 24 hours of treatment, and avoid other forms of hair removal such as waxing or plucking. Also, refrain from putting on makeup, lotion, or sunblock on the areas to be treated. You’ll be provided with a complete treatment plan during your consultation with Pure Medical Spa.
