Other than permanent hair removal with expensive and time-consuming electrolysis, laser hair removal is likely your best option for achieving long-term results. It significantly reduces the appearance of unwanted hair and may even lead to permanent hair removal. So, what’s the scoop on laser hair removal? How does it work? Does it hurt? What should you know before booking your first session? Read on to get the 101 on laser hair removal.
If you’re dealing with unwanted hair, shaving and waxing is anything but long-lasting. For removing unwanted hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and virtually any area of your body, laser hair removal can be a godsend. It’s effective, fast, precise, and long-lasting for both men and women. Zap away ingrown hairs and say goodbye to prickly legs!
How it Works
At Avalon Day Spa, a laser hair removal machine emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser is transformed into heat to destroy the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The ideal candidate for laser hair removal is someone with fair skin with dark, coarse hair. However, new technologies have broadened the scope of patients that laser hair removal machines can treat. Most patients will see results within three to seven sessions.
How to Prepare
As with any special treatment, your laser hair removal should be done with a trusted doctor or technician that has the required credentials. Do your research before committing to treatments with a spa or medical facility. Laser hair removal can result in permanent scarring if done with an untrained person. Once you start your treatments, the targeted area will need to be shaved and clean prior to each session. Make sure to plan your sessions with time as they can last from 30 minutes to one hour every 4-6 weeks or 8-10, depending on the area being treated.
What to Expect at Our McAllen Spa
Laser hair removal isn’t pain-free, but it’s also not intolerable. If you have ever waxed, this treatment is definitely more bearable. Some people compare it to a rubber band snapping continuously against the skin. Don’t let that scare you! Keep in mind that certain areas are more sensitive than others depending on the thickness of the hair and skin, but your own pain tolerance will vary. During each session, your specialist will adjust the equipment to work with your skin and hair color, hair thickness, and hair location. She’ll shave any stray hairs and protect your eyes from the laser’s flashes. After that, just lay back and relax as the technician does her job!
