To bare or not to bare. That is the question many women and men with unwanted facial and body hair often ask themselves when at the beach or dressing for warmer weather. And it’s not just about a look, it’s about being comfortable and cool. What happens when unwanted body hair makes you feel less than presentable, though?
These worries can be a thing of the past with laser hair removal.
It’s a painless, non-invasive procedure that soothes and smooths all areas of the body, permanently reducing hair from the upper lip, face, underarms, bikini line, arms, legs, chest, back, or anywhere else that you may bare without hair.
Here are the top five reasons you should consider getting laser hair removal:
1. You’ll save money — At first glance, laser hair removal may seem expensive. But here’s the thing – it is permanent hair removal. Compared to what it would cost you over a lifetime for supplies or waxing appointments, shaving, or other temporary hair reduction methods, it’s a great investment.
2. It’ll save you time — Again, laser hair removal is permanent. That eliminates the need for monthly waxing or daily shaving – and the time it takes to get it done.
3. It eliminates ingrown hairs — Ingrown hairs are not only uncomfortable, but also unsightly. With laser hair removal, you’ll never have fret over ingrown hairs again.
4. It will boost your self-esteem and confidence — A woman with facial hair or a man with excessive back or chest hair can’t help but feel self-conscious. Laser hair removal can reduce that unwanted hair, so you regain your confidence and are vacation ready every day.
5. It will give you smoother, sexier skin — By reducing hair growth, laser hair removal treatments make your skin much smoother than any other hair removal method.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Iorio Plastic Surgery & Medspa offers state-of-the-art laser hair removal to safely and gently remove unwanted hair. We use Light Sheer® laser hair removal, a revolutionary hair removal system that delivers beautiful results for all skin types. Light Sheer uses an advanced computer-guided system that disables hundreds of hair follicles instantaneously. The cool-touch laser-wand does not affect the surrounding skin, so Light Sheer laser hair removal is fast, gentle, and perfect for all skin types.
Laser hair removal works best on dark hair, which contains the pigment melanin. Light from the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and converted into energy and heat. As the heat radiates outward, it instantly disables or destroys the surrounding hair follicles. As the follicles are destroyed, hair falls out.
The hair growth cycle goes through 3 stages, including active, transitional, and dormant. Laser hair removal is effective on hair follicles while they are in the active stage. At any given time, only a portion of the hair being targeted will be in the active growth phase, which is why you will need multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
