Many women spend many nights and days wishing for a body free from unattractive and embarrassing hair. In attempts to realize this dream, they have gone to a lot of effort and suffered a lot of pain because of it, from electric shavers to razor blades and simply painful waxing and electrolysis. However, all this effort and pain is wasted as the hair inevitably grows back.
It is likely that you recognize the situation above and if so, you should give proper consideration to one treatment that is better than the rest – ProSkin laser hair removal for women.
Not only is it essentially pain-free, but laser hair removal is also safe, efficient, and quick. Before arranging for any appointments for this treatment, you probably have a number of questions about it. We have tried to answer what we believe to be the most common of these questions below.
Who Is Laser Hair Removal For?
Laser hair removal is best suited to women (and men) over the age of 18 who have long hair growth that is darker than their skin tone.
What Does Laser Hair Removal Actually Do?
The laser light targets the melanin or color in the hair and destroys the root. This destroys and reduces further hair growth in any unwanted areas. This can give you at least 85% hair reduction over a long period of time.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Take?
Most experts recommend 3 to 6 sessions of laser treatment for hair removal. Treatments are generally carried out at intervals every 6 to 8 weeks for your body and 4 to 6 weeks for your face. The amount of time each treatment can take depends on the area where the hair is being removed. For instance, minor facial hair on the upper lip can be removed within just 10 minutes, whereas both legs or the whole of your back could take as long as 1 to 2 hours.
What Happens In-between Your Treatments?
Once you have had your treatment, it is recommended you do not have another session until at least 6 weeks later. During this time you go through the fallout stage. This usually lasts for 1 to 3 weeks after your treatment and it is the time when the unwanted hair starts to shed away and you are eventually left with a very smooth finish. Although in a few weeks’ time, the hair starts to re-grow, it regrows finer and softer and each time it regrows it is reduced by at least 20%.
How Does Laser Treatment Feel?
It is understandable that you would want to know what it feels like. The general consensus is that is quite a mild sensation involving a sharp and short flash of heat for no longer than a second on your skin.
What Is The Recommended AfterCare For Laser Hair Removal?
It is generally recommended that you should avoid any spa or holistic treatments such as steam rooms, saunas, and very hot baths for at least 24 to 48 hours after a session. Additionally, it is crucial that you also avoid sun beds and direct contact with the sun for at least 30 days following treatment.
