Both men and women deal regularly with unwanted hair on the body. Whether it’s on the face or the legs, it requires plenty of time every day to groom and removes with waxing, shaving, tweezing, and depilatory creams. Instead, there’s a better way to deal with this unwanted hair-permanently. Laser hair removal is a popular treatment offered by the team at Seriously Skin in Chagrin Falls, Ohio and is an effective, safe method of reducing and even permanently removing hair from the body.
Laser hair removal can remove hair from any part of the body, including the:
- Bikini line
Using a special laser, dermatologists can target hair follicles in the growth phase and stop them from producing hair. This can reduce the amount of hair in the area, and with a series of treatments, can even permanently keep hair from appearing.
Laser hair removal requires patients to go through several treatment sessions for optimum results. This is because of the cycle of hair growth. Only hair that is actively growing will respond to treatment, so it is important for patients to schedule appointments approximately one month to six weeks apart. Typically, with six to twelve treatments over the course of several months, most, if not all, of the hair follicles respond to treatment and patients see permanent hair removal.
Most patients are proper candidates for treatment and can determine if laser hair removal is right for them during their initial consultation and evaluation. Patients are educated on the risks and benefits of treatment, and on what to expect before, during, and after their appointments.
