Laser Hair Removal Made Easy
We’ve all been there: body hair maintenance can be a serious hassle. Sometimes you want to go to the beach without having to schedule a wax before you do; other times you want to hang out with friends without worrying about those unsightly sideburns; and sometimes, it’s just a matter of wanting to put your most feminine face forward, without the worry of unwanted hair. And guys, we won’t forget you. Perhaps you want to rid yourself of that hairy back or chest? Whatever the case, laser hair removal may be the answer to your prayers.
The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Why choose laser hair removal over conventional hair removal techniques? There are many benefits to laser treatments including:
- High precision: Unlike shaving and waxing, laser technology can be used to selectively target dark, coarse hairs, and leave surrounding skin undamaged.
- High speed: Laser light is emitted in super-fast pulses which take a fraction of a second each. With advancement in laser technology, an experienced practitioner can treat many hairs at once – an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. This means treatment times are fast – the upper lip can be treated in under a minute, and large areas like the back or legs take up to an hour.
- Highly effective: Unlike conventional shaving and waxing, laser hair removal offers a permanent solutions. You can expect permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
Studies have shown that pulsed laser light therapy is more effective, and more advanced than standard laser hair removal therapy. Pulsed Light can deliver hundreds or thousands of colors of light at a time, and each color can be used selectively to reach a specific hair, blood vessel, or skin component requiring treatment. This capability allows our experienced Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center Pulsed Light Physicians to vary the type and intensity of light delivered, in order to specifically match the depth of the target hairs, and avoid surrounding areas. IPL is more effective, and safer for our customers.
How to Prepare for Hair Removal
If you’re preparing for laser hair removal treatment, we ask that you limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis of the target hair for at least six weeks before treatment. Why? Because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed when you wax or pluck it out. It’s also best to avoid excess sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment, as this makes laser hair removal less effective and makes post-treatment complications more likely.
What to Expect During The Treatment
If you’re considering a laser hair removal session with us, here’s what you can expect. Before your procedure, the target hair will be trimmed close to your skin surface, so the laser can be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of the specific hair follicles that are to be removed. Your true skin color will also be determined, so that any necessary blending can be done to ensure flawless, beautiful skin.
