Laser Hair Removal Q&A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a new and modern way to remove your body hair. While shaving removes the hair by cutting it off at your skin’s surface level and waxing pulls your hair out with the root, both options result in regrowth within days or weeks. With laser hair removal, you can enjoy hairlessness for months at a time.
You’ll need several laser hair removal sessions to catch each of the hairs on your body in their growth phases. Sessions for small areas of body hair take roughly five minutes, while more significant areas of body hair take around 30 minutes.
During a laser hair removal treatment at European Wellness Cosmedical, Britta uses powerful laser light to target your hair follicles. The heat from the laser damages the follicles, so they stop growing hair. You’ll likely see some regrowth eventually after your first series of 5-6 laser hair removal treatments, but this is because of the development of new follicles within your skin. You can book maintenance sessions with Britta if you want to remain hairless.
What are the advantages of laser hair removal?
Compared to alternatives like shaving, waxing, sugaring, and plucking, laser hair removal has a notable list of advantages. You might consider trying laser hair removal instead of other methods because it’s:
You can avoid the complications of other hair removal treatments by switching to laser hair removal. Laser hair removal doesn’t leave you with multiple unsightly ingrown hairs, and you won’t miss hard-to-reach patches of hair. The results of laser hair removal are consistent and predictable.
Which body hair can I remove with laser hair removal?
Another notable advantage of laser hair removal is that you can choose to treat nearly any place on your body that grows body hair where you’d rather not have it. During your consultation at European Wellness Cosmedical, Britta helps you choose the areas to treat while planning your treatment. Thanks to the advanced technology involved in laser hair removal, the procedure is safe for all skin and hair types. As long as you’re a candidate for laser hair removal, you can safely remove the hair on your:
- Upper lip
- Chin and jaw
- Bikini area
The only areas you can’t target with laser hair removal are your eyebrows, upper cheeks, and temples. These areas aren’t safe because of their proximity to your eyes, which the laser can damage. You can still pluck them safely.
To replace your shaving, waxing, or plucking regimen with laser hair removal, call European Wellness Cosmedical for a consultation or request one online today.
