Many of our patients struggle with excessive hair growth. Even for those who experience average hair growth, the constant maintenance of minimizing the appearance of unwanted hair can be both time and money consuming. If you are searching for a simple and non-invasive solution for reducing and eliminating unwanted hair, we here at One Medical Salon & Spa can help. With innovative laser hair removal treatments, you can diminish excessive and unwanted hair for smooth and beach ready skin all year long.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a widely popular and non-invasive remedy for selectively targeting and diminishing dark, coarse hair in a safe and effective way. Treatments are performed through the use of specialized laser technology for fast and safe treatments that can leave you with soft and smooth skin. The advanced laser hair removal device efficiently delivers fast pulses of energy to the targeted treatment area, while maintaining the safety and temperature of the surrounding tissue.
Laser hair removal is a quicker and safer method for achieving successful hair reduction in comparison to alternative methods such as electrolysis. In electrolysis, a follicle is made inactive by an electric charge delivered by a sterile needle placed in it. It proceeds one hair at a time, which isn’t great for large areas. Laser hair removal offers the ability to treat larger areas in a shorter amount of time, safely, for optimal results.
How Does it Work?
Before your session, you’ll be given protective eye gear and, if you want it, a topical anesthetic.
During treatments, the specialized laser device is held to the treatment area. It then begins to activate the laser energy to deliver a series of quick pulse waves beneath the surface of skin to the hair follicles. While the laser is active, you may feel a slight stinging sensation. The pulse laser energy effectively heats the hair follicle, and destroys it, while maintaining the safety of the surrounding tissue.
A laser hair removal session can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the area treated. After your laser hair removal session, you may see some swelling and redness. These are temporary and likely won’t keep you from resuming your normal activities while enjoying your smoother and softer skin. However, you must avoid direct sun exposure. And you should also wear high-SPF sunblock for several weeks afterwards.
