The vast majority of people out there are good candidates for laser hair removal. This includes men and women, and individuals in most age ranges. It also includes individuals who are gymnasts, runners, athletes, dancers, swimmers, bodybuilders and others who are interested in making sure their body is hair-free. It is great for women who are dealing with polycystic ovarian syndrome or other illnesses that cause their body to produce a lot of hair.
The first thing that you should understand is that laser hair removal is not permanent; it is long-term. This means that over time, you may need more treatments. It is also important to understand that the results of the laser hair removal are going to vary from person to person.
When you come in for a consultation, we will ask you about your health. There may be some factors that would disqualify you from being a candidate for laser hair removal. However, individuals who have overall good health make good laser hair removal candidates.
Even though the results are not permanent, they are long-lasting. This means that laser hair removal is great for individuals who are tired of shaving their legs and armpits or who are tired of using waxing kits to get rid of unwanted hair on different parts of their body. Even though you may not want to say goodbye forever to your tweezers, razors and waxing kits, you will definitely be able to put them away for a long time.
Depending on the area you would like to have treated, you will probably need to come to our office for up to six treatments spaced out between four and six weeks. This is because the hair goes through various growth cycles, and the treatment targets hair when it is in the growing stage. Most individuals are able to achieve good results after just two or three treatments. You will not notice the results right away. Since the laser targets the pigment in the hair, it takes a little time for it to remove itself.
Laser hair removal is a great option for individuals who are tired of shaving their legs, armpits, face and other parts of their body. It can help you to say goodbye to skin irritation, ingrown hairs, razor bumps and the time that is spent shaving, tweezing and waxing your body.
