If you have unwanted hair, chances are you have tried most traditional methods of hair removal. However, if you are tired of tweezing, shaving, or even waxing, there are other options. Laser hair removal treatments are the perfect solution for those who want to get rid of unwanted hair painlessly. Ultimate Health Clinic offers affordable laser hair removal for our clients in the East Gwillimbury area.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a quick and painless procedure. It works by beaming a directed concentration of light over the hair follicles in the target area. The pigment of the hair follicles is destroyed when they absorb the light of the laser beam.
Why Should You Get Laser Hair Removal Treatments
Laser treatments are an effective way to remove unwanted hair from the face, legs, back, arms, and other areas of the body. There are many benefits to choosing laser hair removal treatments, such as:
- Treating coarse and dark hair without damaging the skin
- Removing hair from a large area with a single pulse
- Precision hair removal for sensitive and small areas, such as on the upper lip or chin
- Permanent after several treatments
How to Prepare For Your Hair Removal Appointment
Laser hair removal is still a cosmetic medical procedure. It must be administered by a trained professional in a clean environment. Before your laser hair removal session, it is important to avoid waxing and plucking the treatment area for at least six weeks. The laser works on the root of the hair, both plucking and waxing remove the root. It is also a good idea to limit sun exposure in the weeks before your laser treatment and for at least six weeks following each session. Exposure to the sun reduces the effectiveness of laser treatments.
What to Expect
Prior to your laser hair removal session, you will need to shave the area a maximum of 24 hours before your treatment time. Next, the technician will apply ultrasound gel to the treatment area. The gel helps the skin to stay cool during the treatment and also helps the beam to slide over the treatment area. Your technician will tune the beam to treat your hair according to the location, colour, and thickness of the hair in the treatment area.
While the laser hair removal session is in progress, both you and the laser tech will wear protective eyewear. In most cases, patients will also be provided with anti-inflammatory creams and ice packs to apply to the treatment area. Though laser hair removal is generally painless, they may be short-term discomfort along the treatment area. This discomfort is usually mild and will clear on its own within an hour after the treatment has been completed. It may take as little as six to ten or more sessions to complete total hair removal. Each follows up session will be scheduled at least four to six weeks apart.
Risk & Recovery
Following a laser hair removal session, the treatment area will resemble a sunburn. Though not as painful as a sunburn, it is important to treat the area with a cool compress and moisturizer until the inflammation as lessened. There is very little risk involved with laser hair removal. However, it is common for hair to fall out of the treatment area during the weeks following a session. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Other rare side effects are scarring and changes in skin colour.
