Unwanted hair can leave you feeling a little more than embarrassed come bikini season. However, with bikini season behind us and sweater season upon us, it can be easy to forget about shaving and simply hibernate in oversized clothing. However, for many women that simply isn’t a realistic possibility— at some point or another you are going to show off some of your skin and you don’t want it to be covered in hair. Laser hair removal is the process of targeting hair follicles using a highly target laser procedure in order to stop the growth and production of hair in the future. Read on to learn more.
What Areas Can Be Targeted?
Whether it’s your legs, arms, or the area (ah hem) down there, laser hair removal can be used all over your body, including your face! One of the most important things to remember when deciding what parts of your body to target with laser hair removal is that it works better on areas that have darker hair. People who have blonde or light colored hair, tend to not see as strong of results as individuals have darker hair.
How Many Sessions Will It Take?
Although it would be nice to imagine that laser hair removal is a one and done kind of process, it will take at least a couple of treatments in order to get you the results you want. And depending on a few factors, including the area where you want treatment, how fine or course the hair is, and the color of the hair, it could take around the upwards of 7-8 laser treatments until you start to see real results.
Does It Hurt?
The pain associated with laser hair removal has been related to that of rubber bands repeatedly smacking against your skin. However, many patients say that after a few minutes, you will get used to the sensation and will slowly forget that you are even undergoing treatment.
