As we head into the fall and winter months, now may be the perfect time to consider getting laser hair removal. Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments which are staggered a month or more apart for full results. Read on to learn more about laser hair removal and why you should be scheduling an appointment to discuss your treatment.
What is laser hair removal?
This popular cosmetic treatment involves using pulses of laser light to penetrate a large number of hair follicles and destroy them. It treats hair follicles that are in the active growth phase, which is why it takes several treatments to achieve desired results. It is strongly advised that you commit to the recommended series of treatments for your best, long-lasting results.
What areas of the skin can be treated?
Laser hair removal can be performed nearly anywhere on the body. The most common treatment areas include the face, chin, lips, arms, underarms, toes, bikini line and legs. The chest and back can be treated effectively as well.
Why the Forever Bare BBL system?
While laser hair removal treatment has been around for years, it has continued to evolve into a state-of-the-art cosmetic treatment. The Forever Bare BBL system uses a pulsed light method of hair removal rather than continuous light to minimize any disruption or damage to surrounding tissue. It can treat small areas and large areas with ease. The Forever Bare BBL system also has a sapphire plate that continually cools the epidermal tissue of the skin to make the patient more comfortable during the treatment session.
What is recovery like?
No downtime is necessary after a laser hair removal treatment session. For after-care, you should moisturize and protect your skin from UV exposure for several weeks after treatment.
Results are permanent, although you may need some maintenance treatments. If you want to learn more about laser hair removal and what treatment options would be best for you, set up a consultation by calling (773) 763-3990.
