If you’re used to shaving, waxing or bleaching your body hair, then you may be wondering what all the buzz is about laser hair removal? According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic (ASAPS), this procedure can replace other methods of removing hair, leaving long-lasting results that are less time consuming than shaving and less painful than waxing. If you’re considering laser hair removal as an option, here are some things to keep in mind:

How does laser hair removal work?

The idea of a laser beam may seem intimidating when talking about such an intimate topic, but the reality is that laser hair removal is a highly advanced and safe way to reduce hair growth. Here at Defy Nature, we use a low-energy laser beam to pass through the skin. The beam will be attracted to the pigment of hair follicles, which is why the procedure is not as effective with gray/white hair. The energy from the beam will pass down the hair shaft until it’s absorbed by actively growing hair follicles, disabling the follicles in the deeper layers of the skin.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

If you’ve undergone electrolysis before, you might assume that laser hair removal is a painful experience, but in reality, patients who elect to go through with this procedure should only experience temporary pain – like a hot snap. In fact, patients aren’t even put under anesthesia in most circumstances. If you wax 4-6 times a year, imagine having laser hair removal 6 times and being almost hair free.

Who gets laser hair removal?

The procedure can be used by almost anyone who has hair growing in places they’d prefer were bare. It’s not just for women – men who grow hair on their back, shoulders or other parts of the body may want to consider undergoing laser hair removal, as well.Call us for a free consultation and find out where you think you’d like your treatment targeted, we will be able to tell you whether or not you’re a good candidate.

How long does laser hair removal take?

The length of a hair removal treatment is largely dictated by how much hair is being removed and where it is located on the body. Individual treatments can take anywhere from several minutes to a few hours. However, patients may need to return for several treatments, as laser hair removal only targets actively growing hair, and not all hair on the body grows at the same time.
