If you’re looking for an effective alternative to waxing, tweezing, or plucking then laser hair removal might be the treatment for you. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures globally, it carefully applies a highly concentrated light to the follicles within each hair which destroys them over time.
A useful and effective way of removing unwanted hair, whether it’s on the bikini line, arm, face, leg, underarm, or another area, it’s praised due to its speed, precision, and predictability. Targeting each coarse hair, an area can be treated within as little as 45 minutes. After approximately 8 sessions, you are likely to have more permanent hair loss.
There is no downtime associated with laser hair removal, although it is likely that you will experience slight swelling or redness for a few days following it. After 4-6 weeks, you will then be able to return for another treatment session.
At the Winter Park Plastic Surgery, we use the LightSheer laser for our laser hair removal treatment. A state-of-the-art device will ensure that the follicles grow back at a slower rate and that over time, you experience smooth, hair-free skin.
It is suitable for the majority of skin types, although it is a good idea to contact Dr Scott Greenberg ahead of time to determine your eligibility for the treatment. It is important to know that due to this versatility, it is FDA approved.
Does Laser Hair Removal Last Forever?
After a few months of laser hair removal treatments, you will experience a long suppression of hair growth. And while more permanent results can be achieved over time, it will depend wholly on your skin type, the location of the hair, and the color of your hair.
Despite destroying the hair follicle at its root, hair can still grow back throughout the years in the targeted areas. For this reason, it is recommended to have regular laser hair removal treatments to prolong the effects. When the hair does eventually regrow, you can expect hair that is far less noticeable and lighter in color.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
You’re a good candidate for laser hair removal if you are seeking an effective way of getting rid of excess hair on your face, arms, legs, or another part of your body. As long as you are in good health and are not pregnant, it can be a worthy solution.
As mentioned above, it is suitable for the majority of skin types and skin tones – making it a versatile treatment for unwanted hair around the body.
