Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
1. Permanently Reduces Hair
Guests complete an average of 6-9 treatments spaced roughly 10 weeks apart, permanent hair reduction of roughly 85-99% can be achieved.
2. A Treatment for Hirsutism
Hirsutism refers to excessive, male like hair growth, particularly in the facial and chest regions. And while hirsutism may occur in both men and women, it is typically of greater concern to women given the areas that are most commonly affected.
Hirsutism may be a symptom of a larger and more serious medical condition. While Laser Hair Removal serves our guests by alleviating the frustration of unwanted hair, we do not provide diagnosis or treatment to any potential underlining medical condition. As such, if a guest shall present with hirsutism, we’ll certainly recommend laser hair removal, but also provide a referral to an internal medical physician to provide a comprehensive care and treatment plan. Guests that experience hirsutism commonly have a history of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or certain thyroid conditions.
3. A Treatment for Pseudofolliculitis Barbae
Pseudo folliculitis is the inflammation of ingrown hair and can result in pustules which resemble acne. While predominately seen in men of African American decent, pseudo folliculitis affects both men and women and can form almost anywhere on the body that is routinely shaved. Laser Hair Removal provides the ideal solution. By ridding the area of its unwanted hair, your skin will be free from the constant attack of curly ingrown hair.
4. A Treatment for Keratosis Pilaris
Keratosis Pilaris “KP” is a common skin condition often referred to as “chicken skin” and primarily affects the area surrounding the triceps. While laser hair removal is not a treatment for curing KP, people have experienced positive results in temporarily reducing the appearance of KP after treating the area for unwanted hair. The formation of Keratosis folliculitis, where hair becomes susceptible to tiny follicular papules, is greatly reduced by the elimination of hair growth. As a result, the area becomes clearer and smoother as the aggravated hair follicles are destroyed. Additionally, generalized heating of the dermis, as provided for by laser hair removal, may in and of itself aid in the healing process of skin impacted by KP.
5. Achieve Smoother Skin
In addition to forgoing benefits, laser hair removal is an exceptional method to increase self-confidence and live an even more active lifestyle. In fact, the convenience, effectiveness, and appeal of smooth skin is recognized by triathletes, swimmers, runners, cyclists, body builders, and beach goers alike. Laser hair removal is a great way to keep yourself active and ready to participate in all of life’s great adventures.
It’s important to also note that Hirsutism, Pseudofolliculitis and Keratosis Pilaris may be a symptom of a larger and more serious medical condition. And while Laser Hair Removal serves our guests by alleviating the frustration of unwanted hair, we do not diagnose or treat any underlining medical conditions. It is always best to consult with your doctor or physician if treatments are right for you.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the application of a concentrated beam of light (laser) to keep unwanted hair from returning. The mechanism of action is achieved by a thermal effect, whereby light is used to heat up the stem cells responsible for the growth and development of a hair follicle, leading to their destruction, and thereby making it impossible for a new hair follicle to form. When the energy application along with the time of its application is balanced correctly, laser hair removal offers the ideal means to achieve safe and permanent hair reduction.
Once we destroy a hair follicle, that hair follicle will never return. However, it is unlikely that we will destroy 100% of all hair follicles. Any remaining hair will be much lighter and thinner, requiring less attention than before. New hair follicles may also form, albeit not those that were previously destroyed. For that reason, many individuals elect an annual maintenance session to maintain their desired results.
