Throw Away The Razor For Laser

By Norm Coyne on March 13 2013

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular non-surgical
cosmetic procedures. It is a non-invasive, convenient,
and cost-effective method for the permanent reduction
of hair growth on common areas like upper lip,
face, underarms, legs, and bikini line.


Laser Hair Removal Technique


Lasers use a safe low energy beam to selectively target
and disable the melanin or pigment in the hair follicle.
The beam passes through the skin, travels down the hair
shaft and is absorbed by hair follicles. As the hair shaft
absorbs the laser, it heats up just enough to destroy the
follicle, leaving adjacent skin unaffected. The process
may take several minutes to several hours to complete,
depending on the area being treated, hair thickness, and
hair growth cycle. For effective hair reduction, clients
benefit most from 4-6 sessions scheduled 4-6 weeks
apart.


Laser Hair Removal Benefits


• A non-invasive, gentle technique that reduces
unwanted hair from most parts of the body
• Replaces waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching
• Minimal discomfort
• No downtime
• Cost effective
• Time saving


Laser Hair Removal Considerations


• Not all skin types respond alike to laser hair removal
• Treatments may cause temporary redness of the skin
or mild swelling surrounding the treated area
For best results, it’s very important to avoid sun exposure
as much as possible before, during and after the
procedure, making winter the ideal time to begin your
laser hair removal program. Sunscreen should be applied
on treated areas that may be exposed to the sun.
Prior to starting any laser hair removal program, a consultation
with a qualified laser specialist or aesthetic
nurse is highly recommended. Plan and prepare for
your initial consult by compiling a list of questions and
concerns, and if necessary, seek a second opinion. For
added value and significant savings, find a Med Spas
that offers complimentary consultations and special
student rates.


Throw away the razor for laser, and enjoy a hair free
carefree summer!
