Imagine a world in which you no longer have to regularly wax, pluck or shave unwanted hair from your body. That’s possible with the help of laser hair removal treatment. After all, who doesn’t want smooth skin? Say good-bye to shaving bumps and ingrown hairs! Unwanted hair – be gone! Does laser hair removal work? Yes, and yes. This popular noninvasive hair removal treatment is among the top 5 cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed in 2017. We know the treatment extremely well here at DermaClinic in Coral Gables. We’re experts at laser hair removal, and we’re here to tell you that there are many benefits.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The treatment involves using a concentrated beam of light to penetrate hair follicles. That light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, in effect damaging the hair follicles enough to inhibit future hair growth. And how many laser hair removal treatments are required? It depends on the area being targeted, but it normally takes four to six treatments to be effective.
Benefit #1: Reduced Hair Growth
Laser hair removal will drastically reduce your hair growth. It is most effective for people who have lighter skin and dark hair. But advances in laser technology have made it possible for nearly all skin tones/hair colors to enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal, though it may not be quite as effective. Most studies point to an 80 percent hair growth reduction.
Benefit #2: Hair Removal Results are Long-Lasting
Just how long does hair removal last? While there are no optimal results (they vary from person to person), your hair may not grow back for several months or even several years. It depends on several factors, including your skin tone, hair type and color, the part of the body that’s being targeted, hormonal changes, and whether the hair follicle was totally destroyed or damaged. But it’s an excellent semi-permanent hair removal method.
Benefit #3: Laser Hair Removal Works on Many Parts of the Body
Our hair grows on many different parts of our body, and thankfully, laser hair removal can handle those areas. Some of the most common uses include the following areas:
- Face, especially the upper lip and chin
- Bikini area
Benefit #4: Laser Hair Removal Treatment Saves You Time and Money
Think about this – because it’s a semi-permanent hair removal treatment, you don’t have to continuously and on a regular basis undergo a hair removal process. No more spending hours per month, in the bathroom shaving. All of this, of course, saves you a lot of time and money.
We Use the Gold Standard for Laser Hair Removal
Another benefit, especially the way we remove hair here at DermaClinic, is that our process will not harm the surrounding skin. We use the painless Soprano XL technology which is the gold standard in laser hair removal. Soprano XL’s energy penetrates deep into the dermis (where the hair follicle is located), preventing hair from ever growing back (in many cases).
