When it’s time to go out and hit the town, many clients desire smooth, silky skin that is free from unwanted hair. Excess hair can carpet the arms, the legs, the back, the stomach, the chest, the hands, the bikini region, and even the face, causing embarrassment and frustration. It may even be the subject of teasing from friends and family. Many of our clients rely on The Biomed Spa for some of the best results from laser hair removal Beverly Hills can lay claim to.
What can be done to eliminate unwanted hair?
While waxing, tweezing, plucking and shaving can temporarily solve the problem, laser therapy is one of the best and most effective long-term strategies for eradicating unwanted hair. Not only is it safe, non-surgical and non-invasive, laser therapy is also quite cost-effective.
During treatment, a specially engineered handheld device is waved like a wand across the skin’s surface, targeting and demolishing the hair follicles roots during their active growth phases so that they cannot regenerate. Often a cooling mechanism functions in concert with the laser energy release to ensure the patient’s comfort and ease during treatment. Soothing gels before laser therapy also help to relieve discomfort.
Because the hair is always in different stages of its growth cycle, only a certain amount of hair can be removed at once. Therefore, you will typically require several laser therapy sessions to see comprehensive hair removal. The amount of sessions required is around 4-6, spaced out over a series of weeks. After most of the hair is removed, you will still need to maintain the hair loss with visits every 6-12 months. Also note that light hair may require more appointments than darker hair, due to the fact that the lasers will have more trouble targeting its pigments.
Some of the possible lasers used are: IPL or intense pulsed light; YAG laser; diode laser; alexandrite laser; ruby laser. Laser treatment for hair removal can take just minutes for a smaller area, or it can take hours to deforest large areas such as the back.
