How much time do you spend every day getting rid of unwanted hair on your body? If you use shaving and tweezing as methods to get rid of this hair, it is very likely that you spend a substantial amount of time each day getting rid of unwanted hair in order to enjoy smooth skin. If you miss a spot or forget to shave, not only is the hair noticeable, but the hair follicle is noticeable as well.
If you would like a solution to the problem, laser hair removal may be right for you. Some individuals have had such great success with this treatment that they have actually been able to throw away their tweezers and razors. They no longer have to spend a lot of time each day when they are getting ready to get rid of unwanted hair on their face, legs, underarms, or other places.
Individuals who have light skin and dark hair tend to get the best results with this treatment because of the way the laser energy works. During the treatment, the energy emitted from the specialized laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicle. It destroys it, which means that hair will no longer grow from it.
This does not mean that laser hair removal cannot work for other individuals. We have had success using this treatment on individuals with dark skin and dark hair as well as individuals with light skin and light hair. In order for you to find out what kind of results you can expect, contact us at Metairie Plastic Surgeons. We would be happy to set up a consultation for you.
Laser hair removal typically requires you to visit us for several treatment sessions in order to achieve semi-permanent hair reduction. You will notice after the first session that you have some hair reduction. However, there will still be unwanted hair on your body. You can shave it right off in between sessions but we do ask that you not tweeze or wax the area. The hair follicle needs to be in place for us to treat it during your next laser treatment session.
