Before you start your first round of laser hair removal, you will probably have a few questions and concerns. Here are common questions and there answers.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Yes. When you visit a professional salon such as Leeza’s Laser, you can count on trained technicians who know what they are doing. If you’re new to the laser hair removal scene, be sure to look around and find a trusted, recommended place.
As for the laser itself, the light energy that it emits targets only hair follicles. This means that the surrounding skin won’t be harmed. Some people react to wax or even sugaring techniques because of the substance that needs to be applied to the entire skin area. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, only targets hair.
Will Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Generally, most people do not experience pain with laser hair removal. When the laser touches the hair follicle, you may feel a gentle pinch on your skin, but this will only last a few seconds. Once the laser moves to a different area, then you will no longer feel pain from it. For larger areas that are undergoing laser hair removal, we can use cooling equipment that will help with discomfort. While you may be used to feeling pain after a waxing session, the good news is that with laser hair removal, you won’t feel pain after the session ends.
How Long Will Laser Hair Removal Last?
The end goal with laser hair removal is to completely remove the hair and prevent it from growing back. Some larger areas of hair will need multiple treatment sessions for this to happen. Other areas will only need a bit of treatment along the way. This depends on genetics and the thickness of the hair to begin with. No matter what, each laser hair removal session will result in less hair than before.
Where On My Body Can I Use Laser Hair Removal?
The nice answer to this question is that it can be used anywhere. While we’re not advocating for complete removal of all body hair, it is nice to know that you have options. It’s suggested that you start with areas of your body that you find yourself frequently removing from hair from. For example, if you have a few persistent hairs between your eyebrows that you need to pluck every other day, then laser hair removal is a perfect option. The same goes if you have unwanted hairs above your lip line.
For those that tire of shaving their underarms daily, or tire of waxing their legs or bikini area, then laser hair removal can help remove this part of your daily grooming habits. Remember that for larger areas, such as legs, longer sessions will be needed to target the entire area. If you therefore have a long list of body hair you want permanently removed, start with smaller areas to make sure the procedure is right for you.
