Eliminating “Bad Hair” Days
Posted on September 24, 2013 by Ella Fedonenko
Unwanted hair removal remains one of the most persistent and unpopular beauty chores that both women and men face. Daily or weekly. For women, it’s primarily facial hair that causes the most embarrassment and concern; for men, it could be the hair on their chest or back. But regardless of the location, it is always an unpleasant, time consuming and tedious task.
So it’s no surprise that laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S. – even with new home products always arriving on the market. Shaving, depilatories and electrolysis all have their drawbacks. Either they have to be performed daily or several times a week or they are too painful, too expensive, too difficult to learn or simply too messy and inconvenient. The laser is easy and it’s permanent. And even better, it is not considered particularly painful and any side effects only last a few days.
The laser treatment is simple; a concentrated beam of high-intensity light and controlled heat is targeted into the hair follicles. The pigment, in the follicles, is penetrated and the hair is destroyed while the surrounding skin is not affected. This laser process offers several distinct benefits.
First, as the term indicates, the procedure is “laser fast.” Each laser pulse can treat many hairs in a fraction of a second. For example, the upper lip area may be treated in less than a minute! Secondly, the process is affecting only the hairs you want removed. And thirdly, it is the most permanent of the hair removal systems.
It’s important to note why it’s necessary to have repeated treatments, usually scheduled four to six weeks apart. The laser can only target the hair that is there! Dormant follicles need time to grow before the laser can remove them. So time between treatments is allowed until there is no new growth to treat.
With all the benefits of the latest and greatest laser technology, why spend time and money on any other process? Get ready for the Holiday Season and call for Your Laser Skin Care, LA near Beverly Hills, laser hair removal today.
