What You Should Know About Treating Sensitive Skin
Posted on May 15, 2014 by Ella Fedonenko
Sensitive skin affects millions of people worldwide. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 50 percent of people surveyed have some form of skin sensitivity. The most common symptoms of sensitive skin are redness and burning and stinging sensations. These symptoms are often associated with inflammation.
Sensitive skin is a serious condition and surprisingly one of the most recommended ways to treat it is by getting laser hair removal treatments.
It may be surprising that laser hair removal can prevent sensitive skin, however, skin irritation can actually result from shaving. Shaving can cause rashes and eczema. Many patients see significant reduction in their eczema symptoms after they complete their laser hair removal regimen.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
With state-of-the-art laser hair removal technology, dermatologists will remove unwanted hair from any part of the body and, more importantly, the treatment will work on any skin type. The laser will focus on hair follicles with a controlled amount of heat and then a Dynamic Cooling Device will be applied to ensure that the upper layers of the skin are protected.
Results can vary depending on the treated area, skin pigmentation, and the color and thickness of the skin. The laser hair removal process will take approximately five to six treatments and the side effects are minimal.
