Get all the hairy details about laser hair removal treatment.
Noticing that the peach fuzz on your face is a little darker than you would like? Hate having to shave, pluck, tweeze, and wax regularly? If so, laser hair removal may be perfect for you! Read on to learn about the benefits of this treatment from Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH.
How does laser hair removal work?
During your treatment, we will glide a handheld laser over the area or areas you wish to treat. The light from the laser detects the hair’s pigment, which the light then heats up. This heat then damages the follicle and hair bulb to prevent the hair from growing back. The length of treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area, as the face may only take 10 minutes to complete while the back could take up to one hour.
What areas can I treat with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can be used just about anywhere that hair grows (pretty convenient, right?). The most popular treatment areas include,
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
When will I see results?
Since hair grows cyclically, this means that one session won’t be enough to remove all the hair. You will need anywhere from 6-12 sessions to see the full results, and you’ll begin to see a difference in about two to three weeks.
Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Most people dealing with unwanted hair can benefit from undergoing laser hair removal. Most laser treatments today are safe and effective for all skin tones and hair types (the hair just needs to be dark enough for the laser to pick up its pigment). A simple consultation with our Dayton, OH, cosmetic doctor will be able to determine whether you are right for laser hair removal.
