Shaving, waxing, and hair removal lotions can be painful, costly, and time-consuming. While these methods are often viewed as the most affordable, reliable methods of hair removal, laser hair removal is taking the nation by storm. From celebrities to average individuals, laser hair removal is an efficient, effective, and long-lasting way to remove unwanted hair.
Safety of the Laser Hair Removal Method
While many fear pain and redness as a result of laser hair removal, the process is virtually pain-free and redness and swelling usually subsides shortly after the procedure. In fact, the LaserAway hair removal and aesthetics experts in Santa Clara utilize the safest, most effective laser hair removal technology: the Cynosure. The Cynosure is safe and effective for individuals of all skin types. This technology is comprised of two laser systems and a Cryo cooler, which reduces discomfort with the use of cool air.
Though laser hair removal treatments may seem complex, the procedure is relatively simple and quick when performed by an experienced professional. This procedure utilizes an invisible beam of light that is produced by a laser. The constant heat from this source penetrates the hair follicle, which disables it and destroys the hair root. In general, the surrounding skin is preserved. However, different types of lasers are gentler on surrounding skin than others. This process is made efficient by the ability of the laser to detect the darker-colored follicle by detecting melanin.
As a first time patient, it can be comforting to know what to expect during a laser hair removal procedure. During the procedure, patients wear goggles in order to protect the eyes from light from the laser. Throughout the procedure, patients may feel a series of burning or prickling sensations, which are produced from the laser. The aesthetician may apply a topical solution on the treated area in order to minimize discomfort. Depending on the area that is being done, the procedure could take a few minutes to several hours to complete.
