Laser technology is:
Fast. Each laser pulse is only a split second, and lasers can treat many hairs in a short amount of time. For example, lasers treat areas the size of a dime in about a minute, and a laser treats your upper lip and chin in less than a minute. However, large sites like your legs or back can take more than an hour.
Inevitable. You will experience permanent hair removal after three to six sessions.
Precise. Lasers can target coarse and dark hair and leave the surrounding skin undamaged.
Painless. Laser hair removal is relatively painless. Mostpatients state that it feels “like a rubber band bing snapped againstyour skin.” You can equest numbeing cream before any laser hair removal treatment.
When thinking about laser hair removal, you will need to avoid bleaching, plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks. Trying to lighten or remove your hair will decrease your laser treatment’s effectiveness. Your provider may ask you to shave the day before, however.
Sun exposure will cause complications, and you are advised to stay out of excessive sun exposure six weeks after treatment. Do use sun protection on the parts of your skin that have been treated by laser. At Renewal Aesthetics, we pride ourselves on offering the best and most comprehensive hair removal treatments available in the area.
