Stay Smooth All Summer With Laser Hair Removal
The summer months are here, and that means time outside in the sun. Whether you’re wearing a tank top and shorts, a sun dress, or just your bathing suit, pesky hair peeking out where you don’t want it to can be a problem. But, it doesn’t have to be!
Stay smooth all summer long, and a lot longer, with laser hair removal at Skin Matrx.
What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is effective on almost any part of the body, achieving attractively smooth, hairless skin for the summer that lasts so long the treatment can be considered semi-permanent. Laser hair removal is most popularly performed on the following areas:
- Lower legs
- Bikini line
- Face (anywhere except the eyelids)
How long will laser hair removal last?
Laser hair removal works by damaging the hair follicles in the treated area. This weakens or stops future hair growth. A series of treatments are performed in one area over a period of time, ensuring that all the hair follicles in the area are treated by the laser while they are in their growth period. This is how the unwanted hair is eliminated, leaving the skin completely smooth.
After your treatment, results last so long that many people consider the results permanent. You will enjoy hairless skin for at least two years. However, keep in mind that this treatment is not completely permanent, as there is a potential for light hair growth from hair follicles that were damaged but not fully destroyed by the laser treatment. If this occurs, the light hair growth can be addressed with a touchup appointment.
Does the recovery period take a long time?
One of the reasons laser hair removal treatments are so popular is the fact that there is no downtime afterward. The recovery period is relatively minimal, and you can get right back to your daily routine once the treatment is complete. Another plus is that the treatment period itself is conveniently short, taking only about 20 minutes.
Once the treatment period is complete, you will feel some tenderness and experience redness or small bumps on the treated skin. However, this only last for a few hours, or at most a day or two. Until the area is completely healed, stay out of the sun and don’t do anything that might irritate the skin, such as plucking or waxing.
In the next couple of weeks, you body will naturally push out a portion of the damaged hair shaft. You may notices some shedding hairs when this happens.
That’s all there is to the recovery process after laser hair removal!
