What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a method for getting rid of your body hair in places where it’s irritating or where you would rather simply have hairless skin. While shaving and waxing are more traditional options for removing your body hair, these options are not quite as advanced and don’t offer permanent results.
When you get laser hair removal, the pigment in your body hair absorbs the heat from the laser beam. The heat then travels down the shaft of the hair and into the follicle in your skin. It damages the follicle so that it stops growing hair.
The results of laser hair removal vary slightly from person to person, but you can always expect to go through several sessions to clear the hair in a targeted area completely. If any hair grows back, which it sometimes does, it is finer, lighter, and sparser than it was before treatment.
What are the advantages of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal has clear advantages over the more conventional hair-removal methods. While it’s up to you to decide which one best aligns with your preferences and budget, you should consider the benefits of laser hair removal while weighing your options. They include:
- Pain-free treatments
- Precise treatment areas
- Ingrown hair prevention
- No razor bumps or burns
- Permanent results
When you consider the overall costs of hair removal over the course of your life, it’s possible that laser hair removal is on the more cost-effective end. You’ll no longer have to book waxes with an esthetician or purchase razors, shaving cream, and other hair-removal supplies that you must buy repeatedly.
Which areas can I target with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal services have a high degree of precision and can take care of the hair in areas that are small or hard to reach. It can also cover large areas on your body that normally take some time to shave or wax thoroughly.
You can use laser hair removal on one or more of these areas:
- Chin and jaw
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
The team at DK Med Spa helps you develop your individualized care plan after gathering information on which areas you want to treat. Most people need between three and six initial treatments before getting occasional follow-up treatments if or when any hair grows back.
