There are very few people who enjoy removing hair from their body with manual hair removal procedures like shaving, waxing or plucking. But it’s something that everybody does because it is what is expected in many parts of modern society. Unfortunately, for some people, removing hair with these techniques is not only annoying, but it can also be painful and irritating. A lot of people are left with razor rashes or ingrown hairs that produce bumps and welts on their face. If you’re sick of dealing with the aftermath of shaving, laser hair removal can help you say goodbye to your razor for good.
Every single form of manual hair removal has some serious drawbacks. For example, if you want to wax your hair, you’re going to need to let your hair grow out between treatments. Electric shavers offer more convenience than non-electric ones, but still the results that they produce are short-lived. There are many creams on the market that are designed to remove unwanted hair, but they often lead to skin irritation.
When you look at the pros and cons of manual hair removal methods, it can get kind of depressing. However, there is one way for you to remove your hair quickly, get rid of the negative side effects and not need to worry about removing your hair for an extended period of time. This is laser hair removal. This treatment produces all the positives that come from manual hair removal while eliminating the negatives.
One of the more pronounced benefits of laser hair removal is that it’s fast. Depending on how big of an area you want to treat, the amount of time that the treatment will take will vary. But you can target a large area of hair in just a matter of minutes. When you compare this method with other techniques such as shaving, it is clear to see that laser hair removal is the winner.
We use state-of-the-art laser technology at Med Spa 22, so our laser can provide effective hair removal for patients of every skin type and tone. The energy that is emitted by the laser is attracted to the pigment in your hair. This, in turn, directs energy to the hair follicle, disabling it and preventing future hair growth.
Since your hair grows in cycles, you will need to have multiple treatments in order to permanently reduce the hair growth in a particular area. Most people need between five and ten treatment sessions to get the best results. However, once you have gone through the cycle of treatments, you can expect to have a hair free area for many months to come.
Laser hair removal can provide you with effective, lasting hair reduction without the unwanted side effects of other methods. We are pleased to provide this popular treatment at Med Spa 22 in Fort Myers. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and learn more!
