Laser hair reduction is a permanent solution to your excessive hair growth in regions that you prefer to have smooth. It is perfect for people who don’t like tweezing, waxing, or threading their hair. It has become one of the most sought after treatments in the world due to its ability to provide visible results quickly and safely.

This treatment works by beaming a laser light into a hair follicle. When the light is absorbed into the hair follicle, it kills the hair from its root, preventing it from growing back. Laser hair removal is a fairly simple procedure and can save you the headache of shaving or waxing. Given its versatile nature and ability to be performed on any part of your body, laser hair reduction has become the ideal option to get rid of unwanted hair on the body.

What Are The Benefits Of Laser Hair Reduction?

Laser hair reduction comes with a number of great benefits. Firstly, it works by reducing maintenance time. Regular visits to a salon can take a lot of time and can cost you lots of money. Razors can cause cuts and tweezers are an equally painful experience. All these issues can be solved permanently with a few laser treatment sittings.

Laser treatment is very precise, that is, it can be used to selectively target a particular part of the body with dark coarse hair without affecting the skin in anyway. After the treatment is completed, your skin will be more visible and appear smoother.

Laser treatments are also very fast and highly efficient. The laser light can target many hair follicles at one time. Depending on your needs, you may find that one sitting can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. Larger areas like the back can take a maximum of an hour to be treated. After the procedure is completed, you will be able to experience hairless skin in the treated area for a long time.

What To Do Before And After The Procedure?

As any other procedure, laser hair removal comes with its own set of risks. Be sure to choose your doctor wisely and look into his prior credentials before going in for the treatment. Laser hair removal requires you to not tweeze or pluck any body hair. Waxing and shaving should be avoided for up to six weeks before the procedure as well.

This is because the laser beam targets the root of the hair follicle, which is temporarily removed while waxing. Excessive exposure to the sun should also be avoided for four to five weeks before and after the procedure to avoid any skin complications. Whenever you go outside, you should make sure to apply enough sunscreen to keep your skin protected.

It is important that you discuss your desired outcome with your doctor clearly before going in for the procedure. It should only be performed by skilled professionals or you may suffer from irreversible damage to the skin. Taking the time to find a doctor with the skills and experience necessary can help ensure the best results possible.

All in all, if performed with proper guidelines, you could very well say goodbye to pain and high maintenance of unwanted hair after laser hair removal.
