How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light for hair removal for men and women. The light emitted is well-absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair’s growth. Our laser hair removal professional, Dr. Balshi, uses the best laser hair removal device, the highest technology Spectrum Laser/IPL System with unparalleled treatment efficacy in hair removal, especially for thinner hair that most lasers simply cannot target.
Why Laser Hair Removal
Tired of waking up early just so you can shave unwanted hair? Or are you annoyed that you have to grow unwanted hair so that you can wax it out after? Well, you don't have to worry now because there's a new way of removing hair that doesn't give you the hassle. Balshi Dermatology offers you their very high-quality laser hair removal service.
What To Do Before Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is not as simple as it looks - it should be applied by a professional. There are certain things you should do before getting your hair removed via laser. The first thing is to avoid the sun at least four weeks before and after your hair removal session. The best season to do so is during the winter or during the fall because you will have less sun exposure. You should also avoid going into tanning beds or any other treatment that involves having heat absorbed by your skin.
Another thing you have to do is to have your hairy area shaved. This is only for the purpose of not having long hair sprouting from your body, which will make it easier for the laser to be applied. If you only have tiny hair on your underarms, legs, or bikini area, then you don't have to shave before getting a laser.
Last but not the least, you should know that you can't go full laser mode on your whole body. This isn't healthy and there's only enough heat your body can absorb.
The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
There are many benefits to laser hair removal and more people are considering switching to it. Here are a few things that could convince you to do the same.
1. It's Hassle-free
Even though you have to shave off long hairs and that you have to avoid the sun, laser hair removal is actually hassle-free. You don't have to wake up early, nor do you have to be overly hairy for it to be applied. You simply make an appointment, come to our board-certified dermatologist, and then he will use the laser on your body and apply the treatment. Each press only takes a fraction of a second and you'll only feel the heat for a short time.
2. It's Painless
Unlike waxing where you have to breathe in and hold your scream before they pull the roots of your hair out, laser hair removal doesn't hurt. It doesn't even tinge. You will only feel heat pressed to your body, but it is not that hot for you to feel uncomfortable. However, there are more sensitive parts of the body so you might feel a very slight tinge. Nonetheless, nothing gets pulled off your body in such force that you have to try your best not to scream. To add to that, you don't have to worry about cutting yourself during shaving because there are no razors involved here.
3. It's Almost Permanent
The Spectrum Laser/IPL System uses an 810nm diode laser to remove and permanently reduce unwanted body hair. With a hertz rate of up to 10-pulses per second, both small and large areas can be treated fast and effectively.
A lot of people who have tried the treatment vouch for its effectivity in slowing down the growth of your hair. People who have tried it also claim that it's much more effective than hot or cold wax as all the hair follicles of the area are prevented from growing. You can start seeing the difference after four sessions.
4. It's Precise
Because it isn't like wax, the laser equipment can be very precise. This means that it will only target the part that it is exposed to. And when it does get pressed to your body, no hair strand remains in place. You can expect a clean lasered underarm without any short bits or remains of hair to be found.
5. It's Fast
As mentioned earlier, the laser only touches your body for a fraction of a second and it moves on to the next part. This is even faster than waxing or shaving. Also, there is no pre-treatment needed except when you have to shave off long hair. Because of this, you can go in and out of the clinic anytime. If you're a busy person or you are in a rush, laser hair removal is the best option for you. Schedule an appointment today and get started!
