If you’re tired of waxing or tweezing to get rid of unwanted leg hair, consider a laser removal treatment procedure. Before next summer, you can enjoy hair-free legs without having to spend time shaving. Laser hair removal is a proven method of destroying hair follicles.
There are no major side effects, the procedure can be done right in our office, and the results are generally more than satisfactory. Laser hair removal usually involves a series of treatments.
We provide complete information on how this procedure is done, and we encourage you to contact us for a consultation session.
The Science of Laser Hair Removal
The instrument used is a gentle heat laser that channels monochromatic light.
Because the laser can be targeted to burn away only certain tissue tones and densities, a large number of follicles can be destroyed with just a few pulses of light energy.
When laser light comes into contact with the hair follicle, the follicle is heated and destroyed.
Preparing for Treatment
The follicles should be healthy and not subjected to plucking prior to being zapped by the laser instrument.
We may encourage our clients to abstain from any form of wax, pluck, or tweezing treatment for several weeks prior to laser hair removal.
Because the laser beam targets the hair roots, they must be in place at the time the procedure is performed.
Laser hair removal works best on dark hairs growing out of light-toned skin. Avoiding tanning beds is a good idea when preparing for this type of cosmetic procedure. If you have darker skin, we can still advise you on whether laser hair removal is right for you.
During the Procedure
The leg hair may be trimmed prior to the treatment. This could make it easier for us to target the roots and the follicle itself.
The laser is placed on the skin surface and the light is pulsed rapidly. You will probably experience a sensation of heat.
If both legs are to be treated, treatment time could increase. If the face is to be treated, you may need to wear eye protection.
