Does Laser Hair Removal Last Forever?
The age old question… Does laser hair removal last forever? This is the first thing that comes to mind for any prospective laser hair removal client because well, the entire point of getting laser hair removal in the first place is to eliminate the need for shaving, waxing, tweezing, or plucking and having smooth, hair-free skin for years to come. If you are going to invest time and money into getting laser hair removal treatments, you want to be sure you’re going to get long-lasting results, right? Of course.
Laser Hair Removal Delivers Optimal Results
Laser hair removal has come a long way in recent years thanks to advancements in technology that have given us state-of-the-art devices that deliver optimal results. In the past, it was not effective for people with darker skin tones, but the newer technologies have made it possible for people of all skin tones to be able to safely and effectively experience laser hair removal.
At Fox Vein & Laser Experts, we use the most effective and gentle machine available on the market today: the GentleMax Pro®. This groundbreaking device delivers quick, painless rays of energy directly to the hair follicle and zaps it away with ease. The sessions last anywhere from five to 20 minutes each, depending which part of the body you are having treated. As you continue with the sessions, they may even become shorter due to the fact that there will be less and less hair each time you come back in for an appointment.
We suggest four to six treatments, however this varies patient to patient. It has a lot to do with the thickness of the hair and where the laser hair removal is being done, however we have seen patients achieve their desired results within this time frame. Sessions must be spaced out six to eight weeks apart, so it does take time and is a true commitment — but it’s well worth it!
There is no downtime associated with treatments, so you can go about your daily business after your session. You may experience slight redness or bumps around the area that was treated, but an application of aloe gel or hydrocortisone will help ease this symptom, or they will go away on their own. The treatment itself is much less painful than older laser hair removal techniques. We do offer numbing cream for those who might be more susceptible to pain or are nervous about what it might feel like. We recommend using the cream for areas that are more sensitive, but some of our laser hair removal patients do not feel that the cream is necessary. The GentleMax Pro is designed to provide a much more comfortable experience than other devices, and our patients’ testimonials prove that this is most certainly the case.
How Laser Hair Removal is better than other Hair Removal Procedures?
Laser hair removal works better than other hair removal techniques because it gets to the deep root of the hair follicle and destroys it, rather than simply cutting it off in the middle like shaving does. You might see small, super fine, very light hairs sprout back up after time goes by, but usually these hairs will not be very noticeable, and a quick maintenance visit to our office can remedy that. It is also important to understand that certain hormonal changes, such as those experienced during pregnancy, can cause new hair to grow in place of the follicles that have been destroyed.
Laser hair removal can be done anywhere on the body, including the legs, underarm, bikini area, buttocks, face, arms, feet, back, chest, abdomen, chin, ears, nose, unibrow, and neck.
Once you have made the decision to get laser hair removal, your life will never be the same. Say goodbye to daily shaving and tweezing, monthly waxing, and the annoyance of aftereffects such as ingrown hairs, irritation, burns, discoloration, infections and loss of elasticity that can result from these practices. Your smooth, hair-free skin will create a newfound self-confidence you may not have ever experienced before. You will save time and money, and never have to think twice before putting on a bathing suit and enjoying some fun in the sun.
