Laser Hair Removal
One of the most effective ways to deal with unwanted body hair is laser hair removal. Scottsdale’s The Skin Clinic medspa offers FDA-approved laser hair removal treatments as part of a comprehensive menu of laser treatments.
I’m tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing my unwanted hair.
What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
How do laser hair removal treatments get rid of unwanted hair?
Laser tools produce a beam of highly concentrated light. This light is absorbed by pigment in hair follicles. During the procedure, lasers pulse for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time.
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?
An individual’s metabolism, hormonal level, hair quality, and number of follicles all affect your body’s response to the treatment. Typically, two to five laser hair removal treatments are necessary to achieve desired results.
Do I have to take any special precautions before or after treatments?
Other than arriving with your treatment area clean and free of makeup, there is no preparation. After treatment, you can return to normal activities. The treatment area will look and feel sunburned for a day or two. Avoid tanning or sunbathing during your laser hair removal treatment regimen.
