All you need to know about Laser Hair Removal


Hair removal is just one of those niggling things that is always at the back of our minds. Like we don't have enough things to be getting on with. I've tried waxing, and wasted a lot of my teenage years on it. It was painful, time consuming and personally not worth the hassle. Then we have shaving. Which is a really convenient option, it's quick and pain free but can leave you with scarring and discoloured skin. So let's talk Laser Hair Removal. It's pain free, easy to achieve, and permanent. Sounds amazing right? But it does come with some cons such as expense. However out of the three options I would personally say it is the best and when you weigh up the amount you spend on hair removal over your life time it actually works out pretty similar so let's delve a little further.

What Does A Laser Hair Removal Specialist Do? 

In basic terms with Laser Hair Removal a highly concentrated beam of light is focussed on the pigment of hair on your body and is then converted into heat. This ultimately burns the hair follicle at the root without damaging your skin and within minutes you are all set to bid goodbye to your unwanted hair. This is a process though, so may take 6-8 sessions for the removal process to become complete and permanent. Laser Hair Removal Specialists should be experienced and demonstrate skill at perform this task with utmost precision and safety using state-of-the-art laser equipment. The equipment is continuously moved across your body at a regular speed in order for the light to capture all of the follicles. 

In Which Parts Can This Treatment Be Performed? 

Popular body areas where you can get this treatment done are arms, legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, sideburns and the bikini line. Though it's possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area but eyelids or the surrounding areas are an exception, as they are extremely sensitive to light. 

What to expect?

Prior to an appointment with the Laser Hair Removal Specialist you will need a consultation to discuss- 

1. Your medical history such as skin disorders, scarring, prior hair removal procedure etc. You will also be advised to shave the areas you want treating

2. Risks, benefits and expectations, including what laser hair removal can and can't do for your skin and hair type. 

3. A treatment plan.  

Is Laser Hair Removal for you?

There is a misconception that laser hair removal is not permanent, that is not the case. It is permanent on most parts of the body as long as you complete the course of treatment. The specialists should always make you feel comfortable so please don't feel shy as they have seen it all before. You can find Laser Hair removal Specialists at your nearest salon or clinic and most places have similar rates so it is important to do your research. I can only see this hair removal option becoming more and more popular as technology advances. Long gone are the days of painful hair removal processes. Do yourself a favour and don't waste any more time, book yourself in. You'll thank me later.
