What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair from any body part. It is suitable for all skin types, as well as all hair types, so anyone can achieve smooth, hair-free skin. While the process of laser hair removal can feel like getting flicked by a rubber band, it is generally very tolerable.
Most people need 8-10 treatments to achieve 70-90% hair loss. Hair growth can vary on different body parts, and the frequency of treatments should be tailored accordingly. For example, the face may need more frequent treatments than the body. To prepare for laser hair removal, it is best to shave the area to be treated the night before the appointment. It is also important to stay out of the sun for two weeks prior to the appointment and to have no spray tan on the skin.
Appointments at Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton Utah are quick and easy. Small areas such as underarms or bikini line take around 5 minutes, while larger areas such as back or legs take 15-20 minutes. Depending on the area being treated, 10 treatments can result in up to 70-90% hair loss, although hormones may require touch up treatments down the road. With laser hair removal from Akin Aesthetics & Wellness, you can achieve a Brazilian-level smoothness without any hassle.
How does it work?
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure that utilizes highly concentrated beams of light to remove unwanted hair. During a treatment, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. The light is then converted to heat, which destroys the follicle, while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. The laser works best on dark, coarse hair.
The Brazilian laser hair removal procedure involves the laser targeting multiple areas on the body, including the bikini line, upper and lower pubic area, inner thighs, and buttocks. The technician then removes the unwanted hair from each of these areas. The entire process takes about 30 minutes.
The number of sessions required depends on your individual needs and desired results. Generally, a minimum of six treatments are recommended, but some individuals may require up to 10 sessions for optimal results. After the initial series of treatments, touch-up sessions may be necessary to maintain the desired results.
Is it safe?
Yes, laser hair removal is considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced technician. Lasers use light energy to target the pigment of the hair follicles, allowing for a safe and effective treatment. The lasers used for hair removal are designed to reduce the risk of skin damage, and protective eyewear is used to protect both the patient and the technician from any potential risk.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends that only certified laser technicians perform laser treatments. Before undergoing treatment, patients should check their technician's qualifications and discuss any possible risks with them. Generally, laser hair removal is well tolerated, but there can be some side effects such as redness, swelling, and itching around the treated area. Some people may also experience temporary changes in skin color or texture in the area.
What are the benefits?
One of the major benefits of laser hair removal is that it’s a long-term solution. It won’t provide instant results like other hair removal methods, but it will last much longer. After a few treatments, you can expect to see a long-term reduction in unwanted hair.
With laser hair removal, there is also less chance of skin irritation and discomfort compared to other methods. As the treatment doesn’t involve waxing or tweezing, you won’t have to worry about redness, itchiness or bumps on your skin.
The precision of laser hair removal makes it an effective treatment for areas where other methods may be difficult to use, such as the face, underarms, bikini line and chin.
Finally, laser hair removal is more cost effective in the long run than other methods. Waxing and shaving can become expensive over time, but with laser hair removal you only need to pay for a few treatments before you start to notice significant results.
