Eliminate Unwanted Hair with Laser Treatment

Shaving unwanted hair or waxing and plucking may get tiresome and boring. But it does not have to be that hard if you can consider laser hair removal Brooklyn treatment. This procedure is very effective and safe for any skin type. It is a quick method and can work to fit you and your skin with minimal side effects.

What is laser hair removal?

This procedure of hair removal involves using a beam of light to reduce unwanted hair. This treatment can address unwanted hair in almost every area of your skin except the surrounding areas of your eyelid. The different areas laser hair removal can address may include:

·                     Armpits

·                     Upper lip

·                     Lip

·                     Legs

If you have tattoos on your skin, you should not get treatment for hair removal. Your skin type and the color of your hair may determine the success of your hair removal treatment. Your hair pigment should absorb the laser light, and the laser only damages your hair follicle and not your skin. There should be contrast in your skin and hair colors for best results.

What goes on during a laser hair removal treatment?

Your doctor may review your medical history, including past procedures and any skin disorders. You may then discuss your expectations and your goals with your doctor. Your doctor may press a laser on your skin when your treatment begins. The laser may contain a cooling tool on its tip, or your doctor may use a cooling gel to protect your skin and reduce the possibility of side effects. Your doctor will then pass the beam through to your hair follicles; the intense heat will damage your hair follicles, thus inhibiting hair growth. How long the treatment may take may depend on how small or large the treatment area is. You may experience discomfort during the procedure. After the process is complete, you may notice swelling and redness. You may use ice on the area if you have any pain.

What comes after the procedure?

You may not experience hair falling out immediately, but it will start to shed over a few weeks. You may need to repeat the treatment for effective removal of hair. Laser hair removal treatments may not guarantee permanent hair removal. Your results may last months or even years, depending on your follicles. If you want long-term effects, you may need regular maintenance. You may need to avoid exposure to the sun after your treatment to not interfere with the treatment results. You may develop side effects, which may include:

·                     Irritation of the skin

You may experience some redness, swelling, and minor discomfort, but these will always disappear within a few hours.

·                     Pigment changes on the treated skin

Your skin may lighten or darken after the hair removal procedure, and this may be temporary or permanent. Your skin may lighten if you expose your skin to the sun, especially if you have darker skin.
