Laser Hair Removal: A Woman’s Best Friend
Posted on May 4, 2015 by Ella Fedonenko
A 2008 study showed that the average American woman spends two full months over the course of her lifetime removing unwanted hair! And 85 percent of American women claim to regularly do hair removal.
Another 2008 study on the safety and effectiveness of laser hair removal published in the Archives of Dermatology indicates why so many people are interested in hair removal: “Unwanted hair that potentially has profound effects on psychological well-being is an exceedingly common concern for men and women.”
Recent technological advances made laser hair removal safe and effective, freeing both women and men from countless hours wasted waxing and shaving stubborn and unsightly hair. No longer do you need to worry if others can see your stubble, or feel inhibited by hair in unwanted places.
Safe and Non–Invasive
Laser hair removal is safe with minimal side effects. During the procedure, the practitioner focuses a gentle, pulsating beam of high-intensity, laser light on the hair follicle, delivering a controlled amount of heat. The Dynamic Cooling Device™ sprays the area, protecting the upper layers of your skin and keeping side effects to a minimum. You might experience some discomfort, but most people do not perceive pain.
Treatment duration ranges from a few minutes to an hour for larger areas. You’ll wear special protective eyewear. You may experience some redness similar to sunburn on the treated area. If swelling, discoloration, bruising or blistering occur, they typically do not last more than a few days.
Laser Hair Removal is very helpful for ingrown hairs that occur on the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, chest, calves, or back. The hair follicle becomes infected, often requiring antibiotic treatment. Without the hair, infections cannot occur in the hair follicle and antibiotic treatment is not necessary. Future problems associated with antibiotic resistance are reduced.
Each quick session of laser hair removal targets the hairs that are visible on the body. After 4 to 6 weeks pass, another session removes the new hair growth. Usually only 5 to 7 treatments are required to remove hair. This saves you hundreds of hours spent shaving, waxing, or using depilatories!
Most people will enjoy permanent hair loss after 5 to 7 treatments, although individual results vary based on the area being treated. Both men and women benefit from state-of-the-art laser hair removal technology. The advanced, high-tech Yag lasers at Your Laser Skin Care work on all skin types.
