LaserAway Introduced Me to Laser Hair Removal
You know how the old song goes, right? Well, we’ve given it a twist. We’re proud to present The Twelve Days of Awesome Beauty! Today we’re singing the praises of laser hair removal.
Tired of constantly waxing, shaving or plucking? Then give yourself the gift this year of laser hair removal! Laser hair removal effortlessly erases unsightly hair, so you never have to deal with it again. Best of all, laser hair removal is non-invasive and non-surgical, and it results in softer, smoother skin. It also effectively targets large areas of hair. What’s not to love?
The competition can’t even touch the ease and comfort of laser hair removal. Compared to other permanent hair removal techniques such as electrolysis, laser hair removal is faster, gentler and safer. The facts say it all: Electrolysis works by inserting a sterile needle into every hair follicle, which then destroys the follicles with a low-level electrical current. Ouch! Because electrolysis focuses on one hair at a time, it’s a painful and tedious process, meaning it is best reserved for small areas of hair. If you want to remove larger areas of hair you’ll have to undergo laser hair removal, which can permanently and effectively do the job.
Laser Hair Removal Seems Like Magic, But It’s Pure Science
Laser hair removal seems like magic, but the science behind it is simple. Laser hair removal uses laser light pulses that selectively destroy hair follicles by targeting the melanin in them. The follicle’s pigment absorbs the laser’s light pulse, damaging the follicle enough to significantly slow down hair regrowth. Since the lasers target melanin, coarse, dark hair and light skin combinations tend to respond best to treatment.
Clients with darker hair and darker skin and lighter hair and lighter skin combinations can still achieve desirable results with the Nd:YAG laser. The Nd:YAG laser has a longer wavelength and better pigment selectivity than other lasers used for hair removal, meaning that it can penetrate hair follicles more precisely, leaving the surrounding skin tissue undamaged.
Easier Than You Think
The length of a laser hair removal procedure depends on the size of the treatment area, meaning a session can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. Before the actual laser hair removal session, you’ll be given protective eye gear and an elective topical anesthetic. Once the session begins, you’ll feel a stinging sensation, indicating that the laser has been activated. The actual session involves a series of laser pulses that results in a prickling and burning sensation. But don’t worry; the pain isn’t too bad. In fact, it’s similar to that of a rubber band snapping against your skin.
After the laser hair removal session is over, you may experience temporary swelling and redness. Most clients can resume their normal activities. It’s important, however, that you avoid direct sun exposure. You should also wear sunblock with a high SPF for several weeks afterwards.
Though complications are rare, they can still happen. The most common complications include blisters, swelling, redness and scarring. Permanent scarring or changes in skin color are also possible, but rare.
Let LaserAway Set You Free This Holiday Season
Wish you never had to shave again? Well, there’s no question that laser hair removal works. It’s the preferred way to remove hair because it’s safer and more permanent than other methods such as waxing, plucking, shaving, and electrolysis. Laser hair removal is so effective that most clients experience permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions. But you’ll have to undergo multiple laser hair removal sessions to obtain maximum results, because only hair in the anagen—or active—stage of hair growth can be successfully treated.
