Laser Hair Reduction
Are you looking to get rid of unwanted hairs on your body? Shaving, waxing, threading is only temporary and do not get rid of ingrown hairs and may actually even aggravate the problem. Waxing and shaving may show immediate results but they do not permanently reduce hair. Electrolysis is permanent but is very time consuming, painful and outdated. Threading is very tedious to undergo on the full body.
Laser hair removal, therefore, is the number one option for permanent hair reduction and for women with polycystic ovaries where the hormone imbalance causes excessive hair growth. It remains one of the most permanent and cost-effective treatments amongst all hair reduction procedures.
Laser Hair Removal has come a long way. We have painless super laser hair removal systems today which are not only painless but are fast and are very efficient. The laser destroys hair because the laser energy is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hairs which heats up and destroys the root. Over a period of time after 6-8 sittings the hair growth is considerably reduced permanently by 80% or more. Laser hair removal is safely performed even on underarms and private areas, upper lip, etc. Not only women but men are also in favor of this treatment today. They often seek upper cheeks, underarm, chest and back hair removal.
Elase hair removal systems by Syneron and Soprano systems by Alma Lasers used by LeJeune Medspa clinics are very efficient lasers that are not only fast and painless but promise excellent results with hardly any side effects. A full body laser hair removal is done under 3 hours!
Before the therapy, the area to be dealt with is cleansed. Some may receive a numbing gel if it helps to gauge the sensitivity of the skin. It takes about 30 to 60 minutes for a numbing gel to work.
The laser treatments are always done in a sterile room and everyone within the room has to put on protective eyewear in the course of the method. In the process, the skin is held taut and the epidermis is handled with the laser. Many patients say that the laser pulses suppose like warm pinpricks or a rubber band being snapped against the epidermis. With our lasers which are almost painless, you won’t need to worry about this!
A laser gets rid of hair through vaporizing it. This explains small plumes of smoke that have a sulfur-like smell.
The duration of the therapy relies on the size of the area being dealt with. Treating the upper lip takes minutes. If you are having a big area like the back or legs handled, your therapy could last more than an hour.
You’ll likely see the results right away after treatment. The outcome differs from patient to patient. Mainly depending on the color and thickness of your hair, the area treated, variety of laser used, and color of your skin all have an impact on the outcome.
Most patients need up to six laser sessions/sittings to completely get rid of their body hair. After completing the treatments, most patients do not see any hair on the handled skin for months and even years. When the hair regrows, there tends to be much less of it. The hairs also are usually finer and lighter in color.
