Laser hair removal in OKC can help you remove unwanted hair, perhaps even eliminating the need for waxing and shaving. Since its development in 1998, it has been among the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. Laser hair removal works by destroying the hair follicles with a concentrated laser beam without touching the skin. However, not everyone is a candidate for this treatment. The following criteria can help you decide if you make a good laser hair removal candidate.
Since the laser focuses on the melanin to destroy follicles, the best candidates tend to have a certain hair color. This contrast allows the laser to easily reach the target areas. The beam has a harder time reaching the follicles in lighter hair because it lacks melanin to attract it. However, this still does not mean those with lighter hair cannot get laser hair removal. It all depends on the unique case.
If you have a tan from the sun or lotions, you should let that fade before considering laser hair removal treatments. However, the recent development of lasers with varying wavelengths makes it possible for darker skin to get the treatment as well.
Size of the Treatment Area
Laser hair removal in OKC is great for large areas such as the arms, back, and legs. The only body part it cannot remove hair on is near the eyes. This does not mean hair on the lips or chin is ruled out, however. The process is ideal for treating various areas.
Multiple Sessions are Required
Laser hair removal in OKC does not often give you the desired results the first time around. It usually requires a series of treatment sessions at our office to get the desired results. These sessions can be scheduled around your other daily activities.
