Laser Hair Removal San Diego
What Really Happens During a Laser Hair Removal Session?
If you are dealing with unwanted hair and are tired of constantly shaving, plucking and waxing, laser hair removal from Laser Clinique San Diego provides a permanent solution that is safe and effective at removing that unwanted hair.
How Lasers Removal Techniques Works?
Laser hair removal uses laser energy pulses to target the melanin in the hair. This creates intense heat that leads to destruction of the hair follicles. Because the hair follicle absorbs this laser energy, the skin surrounding the hair is unaffected. Most patients feel nothing other then a slight discomfort during treatment.
Laser hair removal at Laser Clinique begins with a thorough cleansing of the skin. Once the area is ready, a skilled registered nurses will use the laser to heat and destroy the hairs at the follicle. This is done by guiding the laser device over the skin, signalling the pulses of laser energy at the targeted areas. Simultaneously, the laser uses a chilled tip to the skin to ensure your comfort. The process takes between 5 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of the area we are treating.
After Laser Hair Removal Treatment
When your treatment is complete, you may notice a slight reddening of the skin. This will last about one to three hours. You may also notice that not all of the hairs have fallen out. This is normal, as it can take one to two weeks for all of the hairs treated to fall out. Also, only the hair that is actively growing will be treated, so you will need some follow up treatments. After six treatments, you can expect up to 70 to 90 percent reduction in hair. If you are ready to throw away the razors and tweezers for good, call Laser Clinique today to schedule a consultation to discuss laser hair removal. With the help of P.
