Unwanted hair is the last thing you would want, and there is no harm in wanting to remove them. Whether you shave or wax, removing body hair is no longer a challenge these days.
If you are someone looking for a more permanent solution for this, laser hair removal in Toowoomba is the go-to choice you have.
Before you undergo laser hair removal, it makes sense that you know what it is!
Unlike waxing or shaving which removes hair from the follicles and lasts a few days, the results of laser tend to last years. Laser hair removal is effective because it works to impair the hair’s ability to grow back. The method uses highly concentrated laser pulses to shun hair. The laser pulses get absorbed by the pigment in follicles and destroy the hair.
Does laser therapy hurt?
With each laser treatment, the strength of the laser increases. Therefore, the pain will increase with each course. The most commonly described sensation of laser therapy is a hot rubber touching the skin. Waiting too long between treatments could increase the pain. Hence, it is a good idea to follow the schedule discussed with the technician.
The potential side effects of laser hair removal include swelling, blistering, bruising, scabbing, redness and pigmentation in the concerned area.
Tips to keep in mind:
- Shave before your treatment
- Do not wax at least six weeks before the treatment
- It is best not to book a schedule during menstruation
Speaking of the perks of laser treatment, first of all, it is less expensive than waxing as it will save you money in the long run. What’s more? You will no longer have to deal with ingrown hairs and red bumps.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of laser treatments you need depends on your skin type. For example, pale skin tends to burn quickly and tans rarely. You can expect permanent hair removal with 4 to 6 treatments every 5 to 6 weeks if you have dark hair. Women with fair hair will need 6 to 12 treatments to achieve permanent hair reduction.
Light brown skin, on the other hand, tans slowly. Women with dark hair will achieve permanent removal with six to 10 treatments in 4 to 5 weeks. If you have fair hair, it will take 3 to 6 repeat treatments a month apart.
The choice of laser type
The type of laser influences how well the treatment works, and it also impacts the chances of facing side effects. To reduce the risk of melanin-producing cell damage, the choice of laser and its use matter.
Short laser pulses are preferred to control the spread of heat and unnecessary tissue damage. Before you decide to undergo laser therapy, consider discussing your options with one of our consultants.
