What to Know About Laser Treatments for Hair Reduction and Skin Rejuvenation
Frequently having to shave excessive hair growth is an inconvenience that can also result in skin irritation. Skin imperfections from aging, sun exposure, or medical conditions can lower self-esteem. Luckily, thanks to the state-of-the-art laser treatments, cosmetic care professionals have the solutions to these problems.
The Alternative to Traditional Hair Reduction
Popular laser hair reduction areas for women include their bikini lines, legs, underarms, and facial hair, while men often choose to have their back hair reduced. The process involves using skin type-specific (depending on light or dark pigmentation) wavelength pulses to target many hair follicles at once. These wavelength pulses are derived from non-ionic radiation that is purely light-based, and safe for the skin.
There should be minimal discomfort, which, if necessary, can be treated by a numbing cream. Hair follicles are being conditioned to produce hair more slowly, so several laser treatments might be needed to provide an optimal outcome. These non-surgical sessions typically take no more than a standard lunch hour and don’t require recovery time, though it’s advisable to stay out of direct sunlight.
Rejuvenation treatments can remove hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and unwanted freckles. The treatments will make your skin appear lighter, brighter, and more even in a series of 2-3 treatments. Results will vary, so a consultation will be necessary to discuss treatment options.
Rejuvenation treatments are ideal for the face, hands, and other areas of the body with signs of sun damage. You may experience mild redness and swelling after the treatment. You can expect to return to regular activities following the treatment.
