Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Age often brings about unwanted body hair growth. Hair growth in some areas is also a symptom of some medical conditions that affect men and women. If you wish to get rid of unwanted hair around your body, laser hair removal might be a perfect option for you. Plus, it’s proven effective and safe.
Laser Hair Removal: An Effective Way to Rid Your Body of Unwanted Hair
Many studies have been completed to show the effectiveness of laser hair removal. For example, one study found that epilation—hair removal with lasers and light sources—induces a partial reduction of hair up to 6 months after the procedure.
The team at Balance Hormone Center has delivered laser hair removal to many patients. Although the length of time the procedure lasts depends on several factors, our patients do see results.
Is It Safe?
Yes, laser hair removal is safe. There are potential side effects, depending on how your body reacts to the procedure, but most patients experience minimal symptoms. For instance, you might have some redness or irritation around the treatment site. You may also have some swelling or light skin crusting as your skin heals.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is perfect for patients dealing with fast hair growth or an inability to remove hair on their own. We commonly treat areas such as the underarms, upper lip, legs, bikini line and back.
During the procedure, we’ll glide a Diode laser that emits light across your skin. As the light penetrates your skin, it’s converted into heat. This damages the hair follicles that produce the hair on your skin. The damage stunts future hair growth.
How Long Does It Last?
You may require multiple removal treatments to reach your desired results. Once achieved, results typically last weeks or even months, depending on factors such as skin type. On average, after going through four to six treatments, your removal should last six to twelve months.
During your first appointment, we’ll discuss your desired results and how many treatments you may need and how often.
Is the Process Painful?
No. Our Diode laser feels like a piece of cold metal gliding across your skin. You shouldn’t experience any type of pain or discomfort. After treatment, you may have some redness or swelling and may feel some minimal discomfort as your skin heals.
