Ice and snow may be on their way, but it’s never too early to start thinking about baring your summertime skin. This is the perfect time of year to consider Laser Hair Removal. You may be keeping yourself all covered up, but those cold temperatures will be gone before you know it, and then it will be time to start showing off a bit more skin. Wouldn’t it be great if that skin was smooth and soft and entirely hair-free? At Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss, we can help make that happen.
It’s a common problem for both men and women — unsightly, unwanted, excess body hair. Legs, arms, face, bikini, back, wherever you are dealing with this issue, you’ve probably been searching for a solution that works. Sure, there is always shaving and tweezing, but that can be a time consuming part of the daily routine and, for many people, it can irritate skin, especially in sensitive areas. Waxing is a longer-lasting option, but it’s far from perfect. Many people experience sensitivity issues with waxing as well, and the upkeep can be tricky, particularly when it comes to waiting through the regrowth period. Now, there is an alternative that is truly long-lasting, very safe, and possibly even permanent — laser hair removal.
It has become one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the world. More than one million laser hair removal sessions were performed in 2012 in the United States alone! And for many of the people who have this kind of treatment, the results are permanent after a few repeat sessions. You won’t see permanent hair loss all at once because hair grows at different rates. That’s why repeat sessions are a necessity for truly hair-free skin.
Laser hair removal is safe to use anywhere on the body, from your face all the way to your toes. Technology has advanced as well, so now there are lasers that can treat any skin type or tone. And the process itself is easy and relatively painless, as long as it’s performed by a skilled practitioner. Remember, this is laser hair removal, and those tools are best kept in the skilled hands of medical professionals, such as the highly-trained staff in our clinic.
When you come for your laser hair removal session, our practitioner will use a laser beam designed to pass painlessly through your skin and deep into the hair follicle. There, the concentrated light and heat of the laser damages the follicle. This damage inhibits or flat out prevents that follicle from producing new hair. That’s the key; that’s what gives you long-lasting and eventually permanent hair removal. This is a precise method because it targets just the hair follicle with no damage to the skin that surrounds it.
Your laser hair removal sessions are done right in the comfort of our Evansville office and they are generally very quick (your full session time will depend on how large an area of skin is being treated). Every pulse of the laser treats groups of hair follicles each time — an area around the size of a quarter is treated every second. So quick sessions and great results that last — what more could you ask from hair removal?And remember, repeated sessions can result in permanent results. In fact, a recent report by WebMD stated that 90 percent of people who have three to five sessions experienced permanent hair removal.
