No matter how you go about it, temporary hair removal can be a hair-raising experience. Razors can leave nicks, cuts and irritation, while various methods of yanking the hair out can create ingrown hairs and infections. Even depilatory creams can cause redness and even chemical burns in sensitive individuals. If you are tired of all of those and are ready for long-term results, laser hair removal at our office in Oklahoma City may be just the right choice for you.
Deciding If You’re Ready
As laser hair removal is permanent, it’s important that you think very carefully about your grooming habits now and in the future before seeking treatments. If you have been grooming yourself the same way for years and have no plans to change your habits even if current trends change, you can surely benefit from laser hair removal.
How It Works
All body hair grows in cycles. This means that some of our hair follicles are dormant while others are actively producing hair. Laser hair removal only works on active hair follicles, meaning it will take a series of treatment sessions in Oklahoma City to get a completely hairless result. This also means you can use laser hair removal to simply thin hair instead of removing it all. You can decide when you are satisfied with the results.
During the actual treatment, the laser is calibrated to target the roots of your active hairs. It heats them up temporarily, which causes damage to the hair follicles. The goal is that your hair will never grow from those follicles again, much like hair won’t grow on a scar. The damage to your follicles is microscopic and cannot be seen or felt by you or anyone else.
Most people in Oklahoma City tolerate laser hair removal very well, but there are preparations you can take to help yourself have a good outcome in as few treatments as possible. Our team can discuss this with you during your consultation.
