A lot of people do not even realize how frustrating it is to shave with a razor until they use another form of hair removal treatment and then have to go back to using a razor for some reason. With a razor, you have to deal with things like razor bumps, skin irritation, ingrown hairs and other problems. Also, shaving with the razor is not as effective as other hair removal techniques. This means that a person has to shave more often, or they have to go around with embarrassing unwanted hair.
One great alternative to shaving with a razor is getting laser hair removal. In fact, you will be able to throw away your razor after a series of laser hair removal treatments. First of all, you should understand that this treatment is not completely permanent. Even though lasers will be used to kill the hair follicle, there is a small possibility that the hair will return over time. However, this usually takes a while, and so a person is able to enjoy great results for at least a couple of years. Second, you also need to learn what this treatment can do for you. This means that some individuals will get better results than others.
When it comes to learning about who gets the best results using laser hair removal, we have seen that when individuals have dark hair and light skin, they often get the best results. The reason why they see the best results is because our lasers are used to target the hair follicle. When a person’s skin is a light color and their hair is a dark color, this is much easier. However, this does not mean that individuals with other skin tones and hair colors do not qualify for the procedure. It is just important for a person to understand that not everyone has the same results.
It is also good for you to know that there are some things that you should avoid doing before treatment. Make sure that you do not pluck any of the hair that will be treated during laser hair removal treatment. You should make sure not to pluck this hair for at least a couple of weeks beforehand. It is very important that you avoid doing this so that we are able to treat as many hair follicles as possible during one treatment session. If you remove the hair follicle by plucking the hair, there will be nothing to treat.
Most individuals need to return to our office for several treatments. The reason why this is necessary is because each individual goes through a different hair growth cycle. This means that at the time that we do the first treatment, there may not be hair developed in the area that we will treat. For this reason, we will use several treatment sessions in order to give you the best results.
