Say Goodbye to Bear Legs
- Posted on: Oct 22 2018
Let’s face it. The cold temperatures and snuggly clothing of winter may mean that certain areas of unwanted hair have been neglected for a few months. With spring on the horizon and summer just around the corner, now is the time to get those “special” areas looking their best. Before you invest in expensive razors or schedule that uncomfortable waxing appointment, consider the benefits of laser hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Shaving and Waxing
Anyone who has tried to manage unwanted hair understands the disadvantages of traditional methods, such as shaving and waxing. Shaving only gives you smooth skin for a few days, at most. The nicks and cuts that often result from the approach make shaving even less desirable. Waxing alleviates the risk of cutting your skin, yet the treatment can be quite uncomfortable because the hair is pulled out from the root. Laser hair removal is relatively painless, and the results may be permanent.
Permanent Hair Removal? How Does That Work?
Laser hair removal works by damaging the hair follicle. During the treatment, the hair falls out of the follicle. You may notice some random hairs in the area after the treatment, but don’t worry. These hairs are simply at a different stage of growth and will fall out over the following days. You may need to come back for some maintenance treatments over several months. After this, the hair may be permanently removed and not grow back.
Does Laser Hair Removal Make the Hair Grow Thicker?
One of the most popular myths about laser hair removal is that the procedure results in hair growing back thicker and darker. In reality, if you have hair grow back after laser hair removal, it is lighter and finer.
Can Anyone Have Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is typically recommended for patients with light skin and dark hair, and this means that many people do not qualify as candidates. Fortunately, Dr. Petropoulos uses only the most advanced technologies for laser hair removal, so just about anyone is a good candidate.
