Unwanted hair remains one of the most consistent concerns in the beauty industry. And it’s a concern for women and men alike. Women are primarily concerned with facial hair while men are more troubled by excessive body hair on the chest, back and arms. But regardless of the area, hair growth is very persistent, very visible and, often, very embarrassing.
Traditionally, the treatments for removing unwanted hair have ranged from the razor, leaving stubble, nicks and nubs in its wake; depilatories, which are messy, irritating and, often, requiring touch ups with the tweezer; waxing and electrolysis, destroying each hair follicle individually, requiring between 15 – 30 treatments at a considerable cost.
So is it any surprise that the Laser Hair Removal process is one of the most commonly-performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S.?
Laser hair removal in Los Angeles is performed by targeting the hair follicle, directing a concentrated beam of light and heat to its root and destroying it while the surrounding skin remains unharmed. Small areas, like the upper lip, can be removed in minutes, at little cost, while larger areas (legs or bikini area), require more time. And sometimes, all hairs are not available to the laser, being in a dormant stage of growth, and five to six treatments are required for total hair removal.
During the treatment, you will be given special goggles or eyewear, to protect your eyes, and you might request a numbing topical cream to reduce the, usually mild, stinging sensation. A cooling device is also administered throughout the process to further reduce any discomfort.
With virtually no side effects, although there might be some brief swelling or redness, immediately following the procedure, both larger and smaller areas of treatment requiring a fewer number of sessions, the laser is the most high-tech and highly effective procedure for permanent hair removal available.
