5 facts you need to know
Laser hair removal in Tequesta started around the 90’s and has grown in popularity ever since. It’s a safe way to remove unwanted hair in a more permanent way than shaving or waxing.
Laser works by emitting pulses of highly concentrated light into the hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light, which destroys the hair. These are some facts you should know before deciding to get a laser hair removal treatment.
1. It can’t be done around the eyes
The most popular areas for laser hair removal are armpits, lower legs, and the bikini area, but almost every area can be treated with laser… except for the eyes and the surrounding areas, as they could be hurt. This means that if you wanted to do your eyebrows with a laser treatment, you’ll have to forget about it and stick to tweezing or waxing.
2. Treatment sessions need to be regular
Hair undergoes a growth cycle where it grows, falls off and regenerates. On a laser session, some hairs will be in the regeneration phase and therefore won’t be targeted. Having regular sessions allows you to target hairs that were on the regeneration phase on previous appointments.
3. It’s a fast process
The device that emits the laser can treat many hairs at the same time in an area of the size of a quarter. This means that the treatment is very fast: the upper lip can take only a minute, the back can take up to an hour.
4. Costs vary according to treatment area
There is no standard cost for a laser hair removal treatment, because the areas to be treated are different in size. Smaller areas like upper lip and armpits cost less, while larger areas such as legs and back are costlier.
5. Trust the doctor
Although it’s done for cosmetic reasons, it is a medical procedure. There are many places that offer laser treatments performed by people who aren’t doctors, which may cut some costs. However, seeing that it’s a medical procedure involving heat and light on your skin, the best option to ensure your safety is to trust only a licensed doctor to perform the treatment.
