What You Must Know About Laser Hair Removal
Posted on December 28, 2015 by Ella Fedonenko
Laser hair removal is popular among both women and men in Los Angeles because it is extremely effective, safe, quick, permanent and virtually painless. Laser hair treatments can reduce unwanted hair from almost any part of the body, from hairline to toes, provided that you choose an experienced provider at a well-equipped laser center run by a physician.
Strategy of Laser Hair Removal
For successful laser hair removal, a series of approximately six monthly treatments is typically required, although your laser treatment plan will be customized for you specifically. The staged treatment series allows your Los Angeles laser hair removal provider to treat all the hairs in their active growth cycle, producing the smoothest result. The best laser hair removal clinics use the YAG laser, setting its intensity to match your hair’s density for optimal laser hair removal.
Process of Laser Hair Removal
Your laser professional may ask you to shave several days before your treatment. Although laser treatment pain is minimal, numbing cream may be used to desensitize your skin before treatment begins. At our laser center, we use a laser with a patented Dynamic Cooling Device to ensure you are comfortable throughout your laser hair removal session. You’ll also be given an opaque plastic eye covering to protect your eyes from the laser light.
Your experienced laser technician is trained to use the laser safely and gently. She will make adjustments to set the laser properly for your hair thickness, hair color and darkness, skin shade, skin type, body area, etc. The technician will often start with test pulses on a small area of the skin to ensure predictable results.
Recovery from Laser Hair Removal
You can go on with your day as normally planned after your laser hair removal treatment in Los Angeles, although you may experience slight skin irritation lasting into the next day. You may use ice and skin-soothing cream or gel such as aloe to minimize it. You’ll need to return about every month to six weeks for additional treatments until all hair follicles are destroyed, reducing hair growth by 90 percent or more. In the future you may need infrequent touch-up treatments to remove hairs that have escaped the initial set of treatments or new hairs produced due to hormonal changes.
