Residents of the Lubbock area are discovering how they can remove unwanted facial or body hair using a convenient treatment called laser hair removal. This treatment involves the use of a concentrated beam of light to eliminate hair follicles growing unwanted hair. We direct this laser at hair follicles, which are small areas that produce hair. The hair pigment will absorb the energy, which is converted to heat. The heat will then destroy the hair follicle and prevent it from growing back a hair.
You will probably require several laser hair removal treatment sessions before you can expect permanent results. In cases where some hair does regrow, it will probably be much less apparent than it was previously. Lasers are used to remove hair from areas such as the legs, arms, back, face, chest, and bikini area.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
One key benefit of this treatment is that it is very fast. Of course, the time it takes to complete is based upon the size of the target area. The laser allows us to target individual hair follicles or many follicles simultaneously. We can treat an area the size of a quarter in less than a second.
Your results will last for a long time, unlike other hair removal techniques like waxing and shaving where hair eventually grows back in a few days or weeks. After a laser procedure, hair will not grow back for several months or even years. If it does, it will likely be finer and less visible than before.
Color contrasts between the hair follicle and skin is how the laser is able to precisely target hair follicles and hair roots. This means that some types of lasers are more appropriate and safer for you if you have a darker skin tone. We can help make the determination of your appropriateness for this treatment at your consultation.
Before your treatment in Lubbock, we will examine your skin in the area of treatment to make sure that you are a suitable candidate for the procedure and when the treatment should be performed.
You should avoid sunless tanning, tanning beds, and spray tanning before your laser hair removal treatment. Avoid prolonged sun exposure for two weeks before and after your treatment. Do not undergo other hair removal methods like waxing, electrolysis, and plucking for a minimum of one month before your treatment. This is because the laser requires the presence of hairs for accurate targeting.
After first testing the laser equipment, your technician will transmit laser energy into hair follicles, destroying them. You may need several treatment sessions for the permanent removal of unwanted hair.
