Get Out Of Your Hairy Situation With Laser Hair Removal

Body hair doesn't always grow in the right places, and you can get any unwanted hair eliminated effectively with laser hair removal. If you're tired of going through the pain and strain of shaving, tweezing, or waxing away body hair, this treatment can offer you a better way to get the hair-free skin of your dreams.

The Process

Laser hair removal is performed with a device that sends out light beams into the skin to reach the hair follicles where hair growth originates. The laser energy damages these follicles so that they can't grow new hair strands. Multiple treatment sessions are usually needed for the best results. Laser hair removal may be enough to stop hair growth permanently, but you might need to receive periodic maintenance treatments to keep the hair gone for good.

Areas Targeted

This treatment can get rid of hair from different parts of the body. Some of the most common areas where laser hair removal is used include the:

  • Back
  • Chest 
  • Arms 
  • Legs
  • Shoulders
  • Abdomen
  • Bikini area

Laser hair removal can also work well for men and women who want to get rid of unwanted facial hair. If you normally have to shave your face to remove hair, laser hair removal can save you a lot of time and also keep you from getting the nicks and cuts that are sometimes left by razors. Laser hair removal also works well at removing the fine hair that's often referred to as "peach fuzz".

How to Prepare

To prepare for treatment, you should stay out of the sun as much as possible in the days leading up to a session to avoid getting sunburned. The day before treatment, you'll likely be advised to shave or at least trim hair at the treatment areas, but you shouldn't tweeze, wax or apply hair removal chemicals that could irritate the skin.

After Treatment

Your skin may be a little red or swollen following treatment, but your skin should return to normal after a few hours. The unwanted hair won't be gone immediately after a treatment session, but you should expect the hair to fall out on its own after a few days or weeks of treatment. Your skin will likely be more sensitive for at least a few days following laser hair removal, so you'll want to avoid sunbathing and apply sunscreen before going outdoors.

Laser hair removal may be the best solution that finally frees you of the body hair that you no longer wish to see. If you're interested in getting this treatment, a medical professional can answer your questions and offer you more advice to help you make the best decisions about your care.

About Me

Looking Like Myself Again

About a year ago, I realized that I was really starting to look my age. I had sagging skin, loads of wrinkles, and age spots galore. It was embarrassing, so I decided to meet with a cosmetic surgeon to help me to troubleshoot my appearance. They were a lot of help. They went through, told me all of my options, and worked hard to give me the look that I used to have. This blog is for anyone out there who has ever considered plastic surgery. With the help of your doctor, you can look like yourself again and feel a lot younger.
