What would you say is the best way to get rid of unwanted hair on your body? Options like electrolysis, shaving, waxing, and plucking definitely have their benefits. However, each one of these options has its downsides. With electrolysis, you have to endure a lot of discomfort. The treatment is also time-consuming and expensive. Shaving requires tons of time, a lot of waste, and a lot of money in the long-run. Waxing is highly uncomfortable, and you have to spend weeks with embarrassing hair on your body in order to have another treatment done. And plucking is extremely time-consuming and meticulous. So, what really is the best solution? We encourage you to look at all of the benefits that you can receive using laser hair removal. This is a treatment option that is quick and easy and offers individuals amazing results.
As far as the amount of time that you have to dedicate to getting rid of unwanted hair using laser hair removal goes, realistically you will need a series of treatment sessions at our office. Depending on the area that is being treated, each treatment session will likely take under an hour. There is no downtime involved after the treatment session, so it is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
What about experiencing discomfort during the laser hair removal procedure? The great thing about this treatment is that any discomfort that you experience is short-lived. It feels like getting snapped by a rubber band. As soon as the energy is no longer being directed at the hair follicles, which last less than a few seconds, you will no longer feel the discomfort. Your skin may be a bit sensitive in the hours following the treatment, but this is normal and will go away relatively quickly.
How do you know if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal? The very best way for you to find a satisfying answer to this question is to come to Metairie Plastic Surgeons for a consultation with one of our medical professionals. They will evaluate the area that you are interested in having treated and then help you get a realistic idea of what kind of results you can get.
