Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means – bikini season. For women, this can be exciting and mortifying all in one. We all want one thing during this time of year – to feel confident and beautiful in that bikini.
Have you ever stayed away from a bikini or ditched plans on the beach because you had razor bumps or had to grow out your hair a little longer before you were ready for a wax? Something as silly as hair shouldn’t keep you away from your summer fun — this is the year to try laser hair removal!
Why laser hair removal?
Unlike waxing or shaving, laser hair removal does not leave behind red, damaged skin. This treatment is very precise and targets the hair follicles. Depending on your age, ethnicity, hormones, and coarseness of hair, you can have unwanted hair permanently removed in as little as 3 sessions. Laser hair removal is a safe, effective way to get rid of hair on your face, legs, bikini line, underarms, and more!
How does it work?
The laser setting is based upon your skin type and gives off a pulsed light laser beam in a systematic, spot-to-spot treatment. Each “zap” disables hair follicle growth at the root to eliminate the possibility of future hair growth.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Everyone’s hair removal experience is different. Those with darker skin, for example, tend to experience more discomfort due to additional pigment in the skin. Patients with coarse hair also report to have a higher level of pain. In comparison, waxing has been said to be more painful than laser hair removal. Many say that the “zap” feels like a quick rubber band snap. To minimize discomfort, your provider will provide creams or instruct you to apply a cold compress.
