Laser hair removal has emerged as one of the most popular methods used to get rid of unwanted hair on the body. Some other common methods include shaving, plucking and waxing, each of which come with their own benefits and their downsides. Shaving is simple and straightforward, but it can often lead to skin irritation and ingrown hairs, and the hair will grow back quickly. Plucking is good for getting rid of hair in small areas, but it is time-consuming and tedious. Waxing produces smooth skin for weeks, but it is not ideal for everyone. Despite their differences, however, these methods all have one thing in common: they’re temporary. If you want to truly eliminate your unwanted hair, laser hair removal is the answer.
Laser hair removal is becoming more and more popular as a semi-permanent solution to unwanted hair. In many cases, it can completely eliminate hair from the treated area. Common treatment areas include the arms, legs, back, upper lip, chin, back of the neck, bikini area, fingers and toes, hairline, underarms and sides of the face.
This FDA-approved treatment has greatly improved over the years to effectively treat a wide variety of hair types and skin tones. At MacMed Spa, we utilize many different specially-designed lasers to provide you with the best form of laser hair removal. The Ruby Laser is ideal for treating fine and light hair. The Alexandrite Laser was developed as a means of quickly treating large areas. The Diode Laser was specially designed to target hair on darker skin tones, as previous lasers could only safely treat lighter skin. During your consultation, we can help you decide which of these lasers would work best for you.
The very best way for you to learn more about laser hair removal is to speak with us during your initial appointment. We will explain more in detail about how it works. We will also help you understand what kind of results you can expect with this treatment. It is good for our clients to know that they will see the best results after multiple treatments. This is because the hair on the body goes through different cycles, and laser hair removal is designed to target and disable the follicle during the growth stage. If we space the treatments apart a couple of weeks, we can effectively treat all hair follicles during the growth stage.
It is important to make sure that the hair follicles in the treated areas stay intact in the weeks before treatment. This means you should not wax or pluck a few weeks prior to your treatment session. However, it is recommended that you shave before your appointment, as this will let the laser more easily reach the treated hair follicles.
