Laser hair removal is a great alternative to traditional methods of tweezing, shaving or waxing unwanted hair. It is a very popular cosmetic procedure with clinics opening up across Australia. Laser light is intensely focused and absorbed inside the hair follicles. The laser’s intense heat damages hair follicles and stops future growth.
These are the top reasons laser removal is quickly gaining popularity. Laser hair removal can be used to remove unwanted hair on the legs, face, arms, underarms, bikini lines, and other parts of the body.
Here are a few reasons why people are choosing laser hair removal over other methods:
Lasers can be used to focus coarse and dark hairs while leaving the surrounded skin unaffected.
The laser can treat multiple hairs simultaneously in very few time. Each second can treat a skin area the size of a quarter. The treatment of smaller areas like the upper lip or the legs can take less than 30 seconds. Larger areas like the back and legs can be done in one hour.
Laser removal does not slow hair growth. Most people experience permanent hair loss within three to seven sessions. For extended periods of hair-freezing, some people may need multiple sessions.
It is likely that a lifetime of waxing, shaving, and other depilatory products will cost more than just a few sessions at a quality clinic. You don’t have to worry about removing unwanted hair after laser hair removal is done.
Laser hair removal requires expertise and experience. Find out who will perform laser hair removal before you go. Only proceed if you are happy with their qualifications. Limiting other methods of hair removal must be done at least six weeks prior to treatment. Laser removal targets hair roots and is temporarily removed with waxing or plucking.
Avoid sun exposure for six weeks prior to and after treatment. The effectiveness of laser removal treatments can be affected by sun exposure.
