We all understand that it requires effort to look your best. It requires time to select clothing that matches, and it requires time to apply makeup and to use other beauty products. Some of the time-consuming aspects of keeping yourself looking your best are unavoidable. However, the time you spend shaving, waxing, or tweezing unwanted hair can be saved with aesthetic treatments such as laser hair removal at ReFresh Aesthetic Center.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Many have been able to change their hair removal routine by using laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is so popular that it ranks among the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States today. It is performed by directing powerful, concentrated lasers at hair follicles. Since hair follicles have pigment, the pigment attracts the light. This, in turn, destroys the unwanted hair.

There are a lot of reasons why people have opted for laser hair removal. One reason is that it can be used on just about any area of the body. People use it to remove unwanted facial hair, leg and arm hair, hair under their arms, as well as hair on their bikini line.

What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a precise treatment. It can accurately and permanently remove selected patches of dark hair. At the same time, it leaves the skin around the hair healthy and undamaged.

Laser hair removal is a fast treatment. Lasers can be directed to treat multiple hairs within a fraction of a second. Most laser hair treatment programs can treat an area the size of a quarter in one second. This means that you can effectively treat unwanted hair above your lips in less than one minute. It may take longer to treat larger areas, such as the hair on your legs or the hair on your back.

Laser hair removal’s results are predictable. As long as the indications provided by the technician who performs the procedure are followed, the majority of patients have permanent hair reduction after only 3 to 7 treatment sessions.

Something to remember is that laser hair removal is not just a cosmetic procedure. It is also a medical procedure that requires using high-powered specialized instruments. Laser hair removal should only be performed by medical professionals who have the training to carry out the process and who understand potential risks that may develop, such as our medical team at ReFresh.

How Can I Prepare?

Since laser hair therapy works best on thick, dark, coarse hair, it is recommended that you hold off on shaving the area you want to treat for at least six weeks before you have the treatment done. You should also avoid waxing or plucking the area. Laser hair removal therapy works by attacking the roots of the hair. When you pluck out hair, the roots are temporarily removed.

For the best results, you should avoid sun exposure for six weeks before the treatment and six weeks after the treatment. The sun can interact poorly with your skin after having laser hair removal treatments. Excessive sun exposure will minimize the results and make post treatment complications more likely.

Maintaining a good daily beauty routine can be a challenge. It can be time-consuming. However, thanks to laser hair removal treatments, at least one part of your daily beauty routine can be eliminated.
