Constantly needing to remove unwanted hair is a tedious task that you can do without. Laser hair removal has helped many Gilbert residents do away with this tiresome activity. A series of simple treatments is all that you need to free up your time for more enjoyable activities.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal disables hair follicles in the treatment area so that they can no longer grow hair. It does not affect surrounding skin tissue and is able to target many hair follicles simultaneously. Patients typically need multiple laser hair removal treatment sessions to see significant results.
Some areas that are typically treated are the face, legs, underarms, and bikini area. The treatment helps to relieve the self-consciousness and embarrassment that many people in Gilbert feel due to the presence of unwanted hair in these places.
How Does the Treatment Work?
We use a laser system to transmit focused light energy into hair follicles that grow unwanted hair. The melanin, or pigment-producing substance in your hair, will absorb this light energy that will destroy the hair follicle.
Why are Multiple Treatments Required?
This is because of the way that individual hairs grow. They grow in cycles. One hair may be in its growth cycle while another is in a dormant one. If a hair follicle happens to be in a dormant cycle at the time of the treatment, there will be no hair present in the follicle for targeting. Multiple treatments ensure that we cover the entire treatment area and catch every hair when it happens to be in a growth phase.
Are There Any Precautions That I Should Take?
Avoid prolonged sun exposure for a set amount of time before and after your laser hair removal treatment because this can interfere with the treatment or lead to unnecessary complications. At your consultation, our staff will let you know if there are any additional pretreatment guidelines you should follow.
How is the Treatment Performed?
The technician will adjust the laser to your unique specifications. Then, the laser energy will be transmitted into hair follicles in the treatment area, destroying them and preventing the growth of unwanted hair.
