Shaving, waxing, and plucking are time-consuming beauty chores. If your beauty routine feels like a part-time job, it’s time to think about more permanent solutions, like laser hair removal.
At Celebrity Medi Spa in Allen, Texas, our aesthetics experts offer many treatments to make life easier for you, including laser treatments for getting rid of unwanted hair.
Here, we want to talk to you about laser hair removal and why you shouldn’t wait any longer to get started.
How laser hair removal works
Laser hair removal stops the growth of unwanted hair at the root, or hair follicle. Located under your skin, hair follicles regulate the growth, texture, and color of your hair.
Our laser hair removal system works by destroying these hair follicles so they no longer grow hair. The laser tool targets the pigments in your hair. Your hair absorbs the heat, which travels into the hair follicle to get the desired results.
Removing unwanted hair from anywhere
With advances in laser technology and aesthetic tools, we can get rid of unwanted hair from almost any part of your body. We use our laser tool to remove hair from your:
- Upper lip
- Chin and cheeks
- Neck and shoulders
- Chest and back
- Bikini area
Preparing for laser hair removal
When considering laser hair removal, we recommend you come in for a consultation to discuss how to prepare for this aesthetic treatment.
Because the laser tool targets the hair follicle, you need to stop plucking and waxing your hair at least six weeks before we get started. These hair-removing treatments disturb the hair follicle, affecting the results of your laser hair removal treatment.
We also recommend you skip self-tanning treatments and keep your skin protected from the sun. Tanned skin may affect laser hair removal results and cause hyperpigmentation.
You can continue to shave, however, and we ask that you shave the area undergoing laser hair treatment the day of your session.
What to expect in a laser hair removal session
Our laser hair removal treatments are quick and relatively painless. If you have any concerns about discomfort during the beauty treatment, we can apply a topical anesthetic before we get started.
Treatment time varies, depending on the area of the body you want hairless, but it usually takes an hour or less. Your skin may be red and sensitive after laser treatment, but there’s no downtime, and you can go back to your usual activities after.
You do need to continue to protect your skin from the sun, because laser hair removal makes your skin more sensitive. Sun exposure following treatment may cause hyperpigmentation, burns, or scarring. Use sunscreen and cover up with clothing.
Getting long-term results
Results are immediate. However, hair grows in phases, and laser hair removal only works during the growing phase. You may need six or more treatments to get the best results.
But once you finish all your sessions, the results are permanent. No more shaving, no more plucking, and no more waxing.
You may have some hair regrowth, but the new hair is finer in texture and lighter in color. And, we can always repeat your laser hair removal treatments when needed.
Don’t wait any longer. Let us help you get rid of that unwanted hair for good with laser hair removal. Schedule a consultation with one of our specialists by calling our office at 469-294-2243 today.
