Is the hair on your body damaging your self-esteem? You’re not alone. There are lots of hair removal methods like shaving or waxing that can get rid of unwanted hair. But those methods are time-consuming and can cause a lot of irritation to your skin. If you’re looking for a long-lasting solution, our laser hair removal treatment SkinMD in Seattle, WA might be right for you.
How Soon Do You Get Results From Laser Hair Removal?
Unwanted body hair can cause a lot of concern. You may feel like you’re unable to wear the clothes you want because you’re so worried about the appearance of your body hair. It can also be a pain to have to keep up with traditional grooming methods like shaving or waxing.
If you’re looking for an effective and long-lasting way that’s going to get rid of your unwanted body hair, laser hair removal could be the perfect solution for you. When you get this treatment, you’ll notice the hair you’ve target falling out just days after your first session. Over the course of about 6 to 8 sessions, you’ll start seeing more significant and longer-lasting results.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
This is a hair removal method that involves using a precise laser to target unwanted hair. This method of hair removal is FDA-approved and highly effective. It also helps you avoid more time-consuming and irritating methods of hair removal like shaving or waxing.
When you receive this treatment from a reputable clinic, you’ll get to enjoy safe, fast, effective, and long-lasting results.
How Does the Laser Work?
The laser used for this hair removal method is color-sensitive. This means that it is attracted to darker pigmentation. The laser will avoid the lighter color of your skin in preference for the darker pigment of your hair.
The laser targets the root of the hair. As the light reaches the root, that light is converted into heat. As the root of the hair heats up, this warms up the follicle, damaging it. After your session, you’ll notice the hair in the targeted areas falling out. After a few weeks, the hair will grow back. With repeated sessions, however, the follicle will be unable to effectively grow in new hairs.
Is It Permanent?
One of the best things about getting this hair removal treatment is that it is very long-lasting. While shaving lasts for a few days and waxing lasts for a few weeks, you’ll get to appreciate the results of your laser removal for a much longer time.
This treatment can last for several years. After some time, you may notice hairs growing back in the treated areas, though they’ll likely be much finer. You may simply need to come back for follow-up treatments every year or so to maintain more permanent results.
What Is Treatment Like?
If you’re considering getting laser removal for your hair, then you might be wondering what the treatment process is like. As long as you visit a reputable clinic like ours, you can trust that you’ll get safe and effective treatment.
Before coming in for your treatment, there are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare for your session. The main thing is to make sure that you are avoiding direct sunlight and tanning salons. This treatment should not be performed on tanned skin.
It’s also a good idea to shave before your session, as this treatment is actually more effective on shaved hair.
When you come to our clinic for treatment, you can trust that your treatment process will be both safe and comfortable. Before we start applying the laser, we’ll make sure that the skin around the targeted areas is carefully prepared. We’ll clean the skin, and we might apply a small amount of numbing cream to the area.
Once the skin is ready, we’ll start using the laser to target your unwanted hair. The process is pain-free and we will work hard to make sure that you are comfortable throughout the whole process. Depending on the size of the targeted area, your treatment could take as little as a few minutes or as long as up to an hour.
Because this treatment is non-invasive, there is very little recovery time necessary after your treatment. Since your skin will be slightly more sensitive, continue to avoid tanning. Apply sunscreen to your skin regularly, and look for a sunscreen that has at least 30 SPF.
Over the next few days, you’ll see the hairs on the targeted areas begin to fall out. After about 6 to 8 total sessions, you’ll be able to enjoy complete removal of the hair with just yearly maintenance sessions necessary to keep up with your results.
