When it comes to maintaining a hairless body, there are multiple methods to choose from. Even so, most traditional hair removal styles, such as shaving or waxing, tend to cause issues like discomfort, bumps, and bruises. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective hair removal process that aims to provide a blissful and permanent end result.
To help you decide if laser hair removal is right for you, our team at CoLaz Advanced Beauty Specialists has compiled the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding this novel hair removal approach. Read on to learn more about our affordable laser hair removal technique.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a more effective and advanced method of getting rid of unwanted hair from virtually all parts of the body. The technology behind this treatment guarantees permanent hair reduction on a broad range of patients and hair styles. Of course, the treatment doesn’t ensure permanent hair removal as the human hair naturally attempts to grow back due to hormonal changes that encourage new follicles to develop. With laser hair removal, however, permanent hair reduction is guaranteed for several months or years after the treatment.
How Does the Treatment Actually Work?
Laser hair removal process works by using laser pulses. The laser pulses fire a beam of light into the skin where it is absorbed by the melanin (colour or pigment) in the hair follicle. As the pigment continues to absorb the light beam, the temperature of the hair follicle rises, generating just enough heat to destroy the hair forming cells. By destroying the bulb attached to the hair follicle, laser hair removal completely impairs cells that cause hair growth.
How Safe Is Laser Hair Removal Procedure?
Laser hair removal process is extremely safe if performed by a rigorously trained and licensed technician, such as our board-certified laser practitioners at CoLaz. In 1997, the U.S Food and Drug Administration approved it as a safe and effective hair removal method. Nonetheless, the procedure can be dangerous in inexperienced hands. If conducted by someone lacking in-depth knowledge in using lasers, it may lead to several issues including burns, scars, or even permanent damage to skin colour.
How Effective Is Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
This treatment is incredibly effective on almost all skin colours and hair types. At CoLaz, we use medical-grade G-Max lasers that are used by medical practitioners globally. These machines are extremely effective at permanently reducing hair growth on all skin types.
In our experience, however, permanent hair removal is faster and more effective for people with lighter skin and darker hair than those with a darker skin tone and lighter hair. Additionally, men tend to see better results than women when it comes to permanent hair removal on the face. This is largely because women grow new and more hair on their faces as they age due to hormonal changes, menopause, or medication.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
This is primarily dependent upon the area being treated. It takes a millisecond to zap each hair follicle using laser pulses. That means a smaller area like the armpits will take five minutes or less to complete, while a larger area like legs could take up to half an hour. To be completely hair-free, most patients will require about three or four laser treatments. And no matter which area is being treated, most patients will see drastic hair reduction in a maximum of six treatments.
