Shaving can feel uncomfortable and often deliver uneven results when traditional methods are employed. If you rely on razors or waxing, you may experience redness and irritation as well. Over time, these side effects can become an expected outcome of shavings – but they don’t have to be. If you have unwanted hair on your legs, arms, back, or chest, laser hair removal can be an effective option for getting the smooth skin you want with less irritation and longer-lasting results.
What Causes Unwanted Hair?
Androgen hormones are the main thing responsible for unwanted hair. Androgens control the amount of body hair you grow after puberty. The more of these hormones you have, the thicker, darker, and more visible your hair is. There is, unfortunately, nothing you can do about your genetics. However, hair can be removed safely and effectively using a precise laser device.
Why Use Lasers Over Razors?
Laser hair removal offers several benefits over traditional razor shaving. This process can deliver smoother, more even results lasting longer (several months) than a standard razor shave. Moreover, laser hair removal prevents the appearance of razor bumps and ingrown hairs.
Laser Hair Removal for Unwanted Hair
Laser hair removal treatments involve using a handpiece against the skin where hair is prevalent. When the handpiece glides over the hair, it emits pulses of light that destroy hair follicles at their source. We use a laser with a large refrigerated tip to speed treatments and reduce discomfort.
Patients describe the procedure as feeling hot against the skin but tolerable. A session typically lasts about an hour, but this time may vary depending on the targeted area. Because the treatment can only remove the hair follicles that are actively growing, several sessions are usually needed.
