We all have unwanted hairs, people resort to shaving, tweezing, and waxing that unwanted hair away. There are several problems with this, the hair comes back. Tweezers are not gentle. Shaving invites stubble, and waxing can be problematic. With modern technology, all of this is unnecessary.
Laser Hair Removal is a fast and safe medical treatment which utilizes bursts of light from a specially designed laser – one optimized to carefully and meticulously remove hair from fine target areas. Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular procedures performed at AlecXander Medical Spa.
Here’s how it works.
When the laser is applied, the pigment inside each hair’s shaft absorbs light and turns it into heat, leaving the skin unharmed. The heat moves down the hair shaft ‘damaging’ the follicle. This, in turn, hampers the ability of the follicle to grow new hairs. And because multiple hairs can be treated with each light pulse, large areas can be treated without discomfort and without forfeiting excessive time.
It is important to note that the treatment is only effective on growing hair follicles. Hairs grow in a cycle, therefore multiple treatments are required to ensure that all the hairs have been treated through their growing phase. For this reason, multiple treatments are required to ensure that the end result is smooth, hairless skin.
It is important to note that there can be some discomfort during the procedure. Nothing akin to the pain of waxing, but there is a tangible sensation on the skin – many have described it as the feeling of a rubber band being snapped on the skin. For this reason, numbing cream is available, but most of our patients find that the pain is negligible and tolerable.
There is a lot of constant care needed to look your best. It is important to eat well and exercise for your skin and general health. With Laser Hair Removal, you will be left with the smooth, hairless skin you always wanted.
The first step is a detailed skin analysis, offered free of charge at AlecXander Medical Spa. Call and make an appointment today, find out if Laser Hair Removal is right for you.
