Do you have unwanted hair on your body? This can affect your self-esteem, and traditional hair removal methods may no longer be cutting it for you. Our laser hair removal treatments at H-MD Medical Spa in Oklahoma City, OK might be exactly what you need.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take?
If you have body hair that you don’t appreciate the appearance of, you might be looking for an effective and long-lasting solution. There are lots of hair removal methods out there, including shaving, waxing, and plucking. But these methods can be time-consuming, annoying, and if done wrong, even painful.
Laser hair removal might be the alternative you’ve been looking for. When you get this treatment, you’ll get long-lasting and effective hair removal. The amount of time each session will take depends on the size of the area that you are treating and your hair type. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. Most people will need somewhere between 6 to 8 sessions total for permanent removal.
All About Laser Hair Removal
If you’re thinking about getting this treatment to remove the unwanted hair on your body, you’ve probably got some questions about it. There are a few things that you should know about laser removal before your book your consultation with us.
How Does the Laser Work?
This hair removal method uses a laser to target and remove the hair on your body. It’s safe and approved by the FDA as a way to get rid of unwanted body hair. The laser works because it is color-sensitive. That means that it’s attracted to the dark color of your hair.
When the laser is applied to your hair, it will ignore the lighter color of your skin, targeting the hairs instead. The light from the laser will be converted into heat, traveling down the hair towards the root. As the root warms up, this damages the hair follicle, and the hair will fall out in the next few days after treatment. Over time, the follicle will repair itself. However, with enough sessions, your follicles will be unable to effectively produce new hairs.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
If you’re thinking about getting this treatment to remove your unwanted hair, you might be wondering what areas you can use it on. One of the great things about this treatment method is that it can be used on almost any part of the body where there is hair.
These are a few places where people commonly receive this treatment. If you are looking to remove hair in any of the following areas, you might be a good candidate:
• Upper Lip
• Bikini line
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
If you are looking to remove your unwanted body hair with this treatment method, then you will most likely need more than one session. However, the exact number of sessions needed will vary by person. Most people need around 6 to 8 sessions in total, and these sessions will be spaced apart according to your hair growth cycle.
There are several factors that can go into how many sessions you are going to need for your laser removal treatment. Here’s a look at some of these factors and how they can affect your treatment plan.
The Area Being Treated
Different parts of your body will grow hair at different rates. The hair on different parts of your body will also differ in terms of how thick the hair is. So the specific area that you are looking to treat will factor into how many total sessions you need.
For example, the hairs that you’re looking to get rid of between your eyebrows will be a different texture and thickness than the hairs on your legs. There are also likely to be fewer eyebrow hairs, meaning that the treatment appointment itself will probably go faster.
Your Hair Type
While the hair all over your body will vary in hair type, your overall hair type will play a huge role in how many sessions you need. Someone who naturally has extremely thick hair is likely to require more sessions than someone who has finer hair.
Your hair type will also help to determine how effective your laser treatment is. Because the laser is more attracted to darker hairs, you’ll see more noticeable results if you have dark hairs. That said, almost any hair type can receive the benefits of laser removal.
What Results You Want
Not everyone is looking to get the same thing from their laser removal treatment. The results that you’re looking to get from your treatment will also factor into how many total sessions you are going to need for your treatment. If you are looking for the total removal of the hair in a certain area, for instance, you are likely to need the full 6 to 8 sessions.
On the other hand, you might be looking just to make other hair removal methods more manageable by thinning out the hair in a certain area. If this is all you’re looking to do, then you’ll need fewer sessions.
The Benefits of Laser Removal
Are you thinking of getting this hair removal treatment? There are plenty of benefits to it, including a reduction or removal of hair in a certain area.
These are just a few of the benefits that you can expect from this treatment.
One of the best things about this hair removal method is that it’s non-invasive. That means that the treatment process itself will be fast and easy, lasting anywhere from a few minutes to around an hour or so.
This non-invasive treatment also has very minimal healing time. As long as you follow our post-treatment instructions, your skin will heal quickly and easily, and you’ll be able to get back to your daily activities as soon as treatment is complete.
Ditch Traditional Shaving Methods
Hair removal methods like plucking, shaving, and waxing have been around for a long time. But there are lots of downsides to these kinds of hair removal. For example, shaving can leave you with nicks and cuts as well as irritation like razor burn. Plucking is uncomfortable, and waxing can damage your skin if it isn’t done properly.
This hair removal option can safely and effectively remove your unwanted hair. You won’t need to worry about other methods of hair removal. This means that you’ll be able to save time and avoid the discomfort that these other hair removal methods bring with them.
Get Long-Lasting Results
Hair removal methods like shaving and waxing require that you perform these methods every few days or weeks. This can be inconvenient, annoying, and ultimately costly. If you’re looking to avoid these things, then laser removal might be right for you.
Depending on your hair type, some people can get permanent results. Some patients may need to come in for annual maintenance sessions, which is far more convenient than having to wax or shave every few days or weeks.
