After dealing with razor burns and ingrown hairs, many wish that they could just throw away their razor and find a better solution to getting rid of unwanted hair. It is so frustrating to have skin that is constantly irritated, yet still full of stubble. Thankfully, there is a solution. Laser hair removal may allow you to throw away your razor and have skin that is smooth to the touch, rid of irritation and free of unwanted hair.
Not only should individuals who go through laser hair removal treatment be able to throw away their razors, but they also may be able to get rid of waxing kits, tweezers and other tools that are used to get rid of unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal is a semi-permanent hair removal option. After going through a series of treatment sessions, you may see that your hair is completely gone in the treated area. After a while, you may see a little bit of growth, but if this happens, you can return to our office for treatment. Individuals notice that if the hair does grow back again after a long time, it is usually finer and lighter. Also, a lot less hair grows in.
Most individuals need to return to our office for at least three treatments. However, there is no way for you to know exactly how many treatments you will need until you come in for a consultation.
Most individuals like to schedule their hair removal consultation during the Fall months. There are several reasons why this is beneficial. The first and main reason is because during laser hair removal treatments, you will need to avoid exposure to the sun. Since laser hair removal treatment can take a couple of months, starting in the Fall is a great time of year to begin treatment. This is the time of year that you are likely to be out of the sun and wearing clothing that covers and protects your skin.
Another reason why this is a great time of year to start laser hair removal treatments is because your skin will likely be ready in time for Spring and Summer, when you are going to wear shorts and skirts. Starting your treatment in the Fall will mean that your skin will be smooth and free of hair by the time you are ready to hit the beach or spend the day at the pool or a lake.
