Analyzing Laser Hair Removal

[Sponsored Post]
It can be tempting to jump into trying any treatment for body hair you don't want. But when it comes to clinical treatments it is important to understand how they work. That is especially true when it comes to laser hair removal. You have to analyze the process well to make sure it will mesh with your needs and desires. Here's a brief analysis of the main points of the laser hair treatment process.

Why Laser Treatments Are so Effective
Laser treatments are effective because they treat entire hairs instead of just the visible parts. In contrast, treatments like shaving only chop off the tops of the hairs. That allows them to grow back very quickly. Since lasers target even the unseen parts of all hairs treated, it takes much longer for the hairs to grow back once they fall out.

Why Laser Treatments Are Not as Painful as You Think
It is true that laser treatments can be slightly uncomfortable at times. That discomfort can come in the form of a snapping feeling as the laser contacts your skin or in the form of heating up the skin. However, cooling and numbing practices can be used in conjunction with the laser hair removal equipment to control those sensations. A trained technician can use those techniques effectively to keep you as comfortable as possible during the process.

How Laser Hair Removal is Convenient
Laser hair removal is convenient in two major ways. First, you can have it done at almost any time. Only a small amount of growth needs to be present for the lasers to target the hairs. So you can attend a laser appointment not too long after using other hair removal methods, if you so choose. Second, the laser hair removal appointment itself should not take more than an hour or so and requires no recovery. Therefore, you can have it done without missing too much work or making many changes to your personal schedule.

When Lasers Remove Unwanted Body Hair
Another part of the process you need to understand is when the body hair will fall out. That process is not instantaneous. In fact, it may take a series of laser appointments before the hairs are weakened enough to begin falling out. You have to be prepared to invest the time and money in that extended process. However, once the hair follicles are weakened the hairs will take a lot longer to grow back. They may also be finer and lighter in appearance when they finally return. Some hairs may not return at all, but laser hair removal cannot permanently remove all hair in the treatment area. It is only designed to make it harder for them to grow back, not totally stop re-growth.

How Candidacy for Laser Hair Removal is Determined
Laser hair removal candidacy is typically determined by skin color, condition and type. Your skin-care clinician may recommend against it or recommend a very specific type of laser if you have darker skin. If you have an excessive amount of skin oiliness you may also have difficulty having laser treatment because of burn risks. However, thanks to technological advancements, you can probably have some sort of laser treatment, regardless of your skin type, as long as you do so under the supervision of trained professionals.

Side Effects That Can Occur with Laser Hair Removal
Immediately after laser hair removal your skin will be red or warm. It will also be very sensitive to sunlight, so you will need to wear sunscreen and follow aftercare instructions. There is also a low risk of either blisters or burns. But generally those can be avoided because the clinician will assess your skin during the consultation. He or she will typically be able to advise you against the procedure if you are at high risk for such problems due to your skin type.

Now that you have come to know that laser hair removal is so quick, has so few side effects and quick recovery time, it is even possible to have the treatment in your lunch hour! So what are you waiting for? Go & get  rid of unwanted hair today!
