Every woman wants silky smooth legs and skin, but unsightly hair is constantly growing. While shaving is a quick fix, it is not a long-term solution. In addition, it leads to ingrown hairs and thicker hair growth. Besides, your hair comes back in no time. On the other hand, waxing and plucking take a lot of time and effort that you might not be willing to invest. Want a permanent solution? A great option is laser hair removal. You will say goodbye to the hair and hello to silky smooth skin. Interested? Here is what you need to know.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
The laser hair removal process uses a laser that emits light that the melanin in the hair absorbs. When this happens, the light converts into heat, damaging the hair follicles that produce hair. As a result, your hair grows less, or future growth is stopped.
Be aware that all hair will not be gone in only one session. Multiple sessions are needed for complete hair removal, and you might need an occasional maintenance session. The professional will let you know how many sessions you need to ensure permanent hair removal.
What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal
Knowing what you are getting into before starting the process is essential. Here is what you can expect during each stage:
During the Process
A hand-held laser will be used on the treated area. The beam passes through the skin (without damaging it) to the follicles. The follicle is damaged due to the heat generated, which inhibits hair growth. You will only feel mild discomfort when the laser is used, similar to a tiny pinprick.
After the Session
After the session, there might be swelling or redness on your skin for a few hours after the procedure. You should avoid the sun after the treatment and wear sunscreen daily because the area will be sensitive. Besides that, your provider will give you some do’s and don’ts that you should follow between sessions.
