While unwanted body hair can be reduced by shaving, tweezing, and waxing, these methods are only temporary solutions and can result in uncomfortable razor burn and ingrown hairs. At Empowerment Med Spa, our laser hair removal services can provide a more permanent solution to unwanted body hair for silky smooth skin that lasts.
Serving the Bryan and College Station areas in Texas, Empowerment Med Spa is led by Dr. Chloe Ntaimo. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how laser hair removal can safely and effectively clear unwanted body hair without any disruption to your normal activities.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Although shaving, waxing, and tweezing are common ways to reduce unwanted body hair, these methods can be time-consuming and result in skin irritation. With laser hair removal, unwanted hairs are eradicated at the source for a more permanent solution. During this procedure, pulses of controlled laser energy are delivered into the skin. This laser is non-ablative, meaning it will leave the skin surface intact during treatment.
The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in hair follicles and is converted into heat, disabling hair follicles and preventing future hair growth. The hair shafts eventually fall out, leaving smooth, clear skin.
What Areas Does Laser Hair Removal Treat?
This laser technology has been developed to effectively target multiple areas of the body including the:
- Upper lip
- Bikini areas
For men seeking hair removal services, areas of excess hair growth may be thinned out while others are completely removed, depending on your preferences. These treatment options can be discussed with you during your consultation.
Is the Hair Permanently Gone?
Body hair grows in three different stages, and it may take multiple sessions in order to effectively target all of the hair in a treated area. While laser hair removal has a high success rate, it is possible for sparse hair growth to still occur, although any hair that returns may be thinner and lighter.
Is There Any Recovery?
It is common for treated areas to appear slightly pink or flushed, but this non-ablative treatment leaves skin and tissues intact, allowing most patients to immediately return to normal activities. Results may vary, and during your consultation we will discuss how many treatment sessions you may need in order to achieve your aesthetic goals.
