If you spend too many hours each week removing unwanted body hair, you may like to find a better way. Shaving, waxing and plucking may remove the hair, but they do not reduce it permanently and can become quite time-consuming, not to mention the cuts, nicks and ingrown hairs. Lasers have been developed over the past decade for treating skin issues, including removing unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Vancouver and elsewhere because it permanently reduces unwanted hair on the body.
Laser hair removal is effective and convenient. The treatments are quick. The laser produces pulses of light that are a fraction of a second long. It can target one hair on the upper lip or a wider area on the back or legs. The costs mount up for shaving with razors and creams, and salon treatments are expensive. If you wax at home, it is messy and time-consuming. These expenses are ongoing because the hair always grows back.
Ingrown hairs are painful and can develop into serious infections. Laser hair removal completely eliminates ingrown hairs and is a good option for people in Vancouver who have sensitive skin and regularly get rashes or skin irritation from waxing or shaving.
As mentioned above, laser hair removal will save you hours each week. You never need to worry that you are not beach-ready. You can put on your bathing suit or shorts at any time and be confident you have no unwanted body hair.
Laser hair removal targets the pigment in your hair follicles. The laser destroys the follicle by breaking up the pigment in the hair so it can no longer grow. If any hair does grow back, it is pale and weak and can be removed with a simple maintenance treatment in Vancouver. Unlike waxing, you do not have to wait for the hair to grow back to have a maintenance treatment.
Since hair grows in stages, and the laser only works during the growth stage, it takes a series of treatments to have the smooth skin you expect. After each session, you should see more hair reduction.
