Does Laser Hair Removal Really Work?

Hair_RemovalSociety expects women to look “womanly,” so unless you are blessed with smooth and hairless skin, facial and body hair removal is a regular process in your everyday routine. Excessive hair growth in women can be unsightly, inconvenient and can cause embarrassing body odors. Shaving, waxing and tweezing can painful and time consuming, but with just a few laser hair removal treatments, you can say farewell to waxes, razors, tweezers and shaving creams. Here are three benefits to convince you this treatment is an effective, long term solution from unwanted hair:
Save time getting ready
Laser hair removal treatment reduces the presence of body hair permanently up to 90%. Once you have undergone the recommended series of sessions at the North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Care Clinic, forget shaving your underarms everyday or every other day, because you’ll only have to do it once a month. It’s possible get down to shaving underarm hairs every six months, if you do more than five treatments.
Reduce ingrown hairs
Another issue with shaving is the presence of ingrown hairs and the accompaniment of red or pink bumps. You may experience ingrown hairs more often if you have darker hair. Since the presence of body hair is dramatically reduced after treatments, the chances of ingrown hairs are also reduced. Discoloration and scarring from skin irritation caused by shaving and ingrown hairs will go away as well.
Softer, even skin:
Most women experience stubble on their legs only 2-3 days after shaving and just a few more days if you wax. You will be amazed with how soft and silky your skin feels even after your first treatment. If there are a few hairs that don’t go away, they will become thinner and lighter in color.
For best results, note this treatment is not as effective on white or light colored hair. Also, make sure to inform your skin care professional of any allergies or medication you are taking. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have, so contact us today!
