5 Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal

Did you know that each strand of hair grows in a three-part cycle with a growth phase, a dormant phase, and a shedding phase, and the hairs’ cycles don’t all match up?

Laser hair removal gets to the root of the problem and only works on hairs that are in the active growth stage. Clients may find hair to appear finer and less noticeable after one treatment, but a course of treatments is essential to see optimal results because your hair follicles are all at different stages of their growth, you want to make sure each one has a chance to get zapped.

 

 

THE BENEFITS OF LASER

Laser hair removal offers a permanent hair reduction and can achieve a reduction of up to 90%. Lasers can effectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Any hair that does grow back will be finer, lighter and softer, which means the hair will be less visible and the growth will slow down with each treatment.

No more ingrown hairs: Achieve smoother skin with Laser. Laser hair removal is the most effective method of hair removal available, unlike other methods such as shaving and waxing. Laser hair removal gives long-lasting results, so you can say goodbye to razors burns, ingrown hairs, and waxing pain. 

Save time and money: According to a survey by Escentual – Women spend 72 days shaving their legs over the course of a lifetime, meaning approximately 1,728 hours. Also, shaving was ranked as women’s most hated beauty ritual. A fast alternative and non-invasive solution for hair removal? Invest in a course of laser hair removal, and you may never have to wax or shave again – saving time and money in the long run.

Improve skin tone and texture: No more pigmentation and uneven skin left behind after constant shaving or waxing.

Brighten and lighten the skin in intimate areas: As dark hair follicles are destroyed by this treatment, dark patches i.e shadows of these follicles will disappear from under the skin. This results in a brighter complexion and a much-improved skin texture as the pores shrink.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The way it works is simple. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, which heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle, so you don’t have to worry about shaving or waxing again. Aside from clearer, smoother skin and permanent hair reduction, laser hair removal also boasts benefits including helping to reduce ingrown hairs and less irritation of the skin. It takes two or three weeks after your first treatment to see a difference, For most patients, a series of around six treatments (6-8 weeks apart) will get the full results, but it varies for each individual. A patch test will be needed before your appointment. 

The intense pulsed light system (IPL) uses light technology for permanent hair reduction to treat a variety of skin types and is clinically proven to be safe, fast, effective and almost painless. It is suitable for anyone who wants to remove excess or unwanted body hair and achieve long-lasting results in any area of the body or face.
