Everyone can attest to the hassle of having to shave unwanted hair on an almost daily basis. Waxing provides longer-lasting results, but it can be quite painful and doesn’t allow shaving between treatment sessions. For those who are looking for more permanent results, laser hair removal may be able to help. Contact the experts at MiKO Medspa to find out if this treatment is right for you.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
When this laser energy has bypassed the skin, it will be absorbed by the pigment of the unwanted hair follicles in the area. This deactivates the follicles and prevents them from producing more hair in the future.
Because the laser can only target follicles in the active growth phase and not every follicle is in the same phase at the same time, you will likely need more than one treatment session to get the best results. Many patients require upwards of four treatment sessions to enjoy permanent hair reduction. After your series of treatments have been completed, you may only need annual touch-up sessions to maintain your results.
Which Areas Can Be Treated with Laser Hair Removal?
Almost any area of the body can be treated with laser hair removal. In general, however, the most common treatment areas include the following:
- Bikini area
During your first appointment, we’ll go over your areas of concern with you and help you determine if they can be treated with laser hair removal. We’ll also help you find out if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal during this meeting. While many people make good candidates, it is usually easiest to treat darker hair.
The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal comes with several advantages over alternative hair removal methods like waxing, plucking and depilatory creams. These benefits include:
- Long-lasting results
- Quick treatment time
- No need for anesthesia
While the length of your appointment will depend on which areas you would like to treat, most sessions can be completed in under an hour. This makes laser hair removal a great option for anyone with a busy schedule, especially since you can go back to your regular routine once your treatment has been finished.
