Laser hair removal can drastically reduce hair growth in the area of your choosing– to the point where you can stop shaving altogether. Sound too good to be true?
Laser hair removal is the one treatment that could literally shave (!!!) so much time from your daily routine. Humans have been removing unwanted hair since the beginning of time. Women of Ancient Egypt plucked ALL of their body hair– yes, even the hair on their heads. Lucky for us, waxing, shaving, and tweezing are methods of the past. Laser hair removal can drastically reduce hair growth in the area of your choosing– to the point where you can stop shaving altogether.
Sound too good to be true? Laser hair removal works to disable hair follicles by using BroadBand Light, which is a type of intense pulsed light therapy. BBL heats the full length of each hair follicle, cutting off its nutrients and prohibiting further growth. The laser is completely safe and there is no time required to recover. Besides a little sensitivity around the treated area on the day of your laser hair removal appointments, you will quickly return to normal.
How Does it Work?
Everyone is different, so here at The Skin Company, we specialize each treatment according to the color and concentration of every person’s hair. Laser hair removal can be done on anyone, but the color of your hair determines the intensity of the BBL necessary to completely debilitate your unwanted hair follicles. The darker the pigmentation of your hair is, the more effective the laser will be. This does not mean that the laser does not work on blonde hair! During your first consultation, we’ll talk you through the process and determine which BBL settings will be most effective in achieving hairlessness in your desired area. Every person requires a varying level of intensity and number of treatments. We will recommend around 6-10 treatments depending on your specific needs.
Is it Painful?
Compared to waxing and plucking, the pain of laser hair removal is minimal. Most of our clients describe it to feel like a hot rubber band being snapped against the skin, and we are also able to offer topical numbing cream if that’s something you’d like. Of course, our goal is always to make you as comfortable as possible. With every treatment, you’ll notice less and less hair growth around the designated area. After the full process is complete, you’ll see around 80-90% less hair, so it’s worth it!
