Mayaguez is one place where you want to have smooth skin that is free of unwanted body hair so you feel comfortable in shorts and a bathing suit. Unfortunately, shaving, plucking and waxing take time and need to be done daily, weekly or monthly. Laser hair removal solves that problem for months at a time and sometimes for more than a year. Your body is always beach-ready so you can wear beach clothes without wondering if you need to shave or have a salon wax treatment first.
Laser hair removal attacks the hair follicle. The pigment in your hair absorbs the heat that is produced by the laser light. The follicle is destroyed so it cannot grow hair again. Laser hair removal is not always permanent. Some hair may grow back, but it will be thin and pale and can be removed with a maintenance laser treatment. The number of and time between follow-up treatments varies significantly between people.
It will take a series of treatments to achieve smooth skin. This is because hair grows in stages, and the laser can only work when a hair is in the growth stage. It will take multiple treatments to treat each hair as it moves into the growth stage. You will see a significant reduction in hair after each treatment.
Laser hair removal is quick. Each laser pulse takes a fraction of a second. If you want to remove unwanted hair on your chin or upper lip, it may take just minutes per session. If you would like to remove the hair on a larger area such as your legs or back, it may take longer.
With this treatment, you can say goodbye to ingrown hairs, nicks and cuts from shaving as well as messy home waxing or expensive salon treatments. The results are not only long-lasting, but the skin looks smoother and cleaner.
In the weeks before and after your treatment date, you should avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds and tanning creams on the area you are planning to have treated. You should also not wax or pluck before your treatment because these methods affect the follicle. Shaving is alright because it doesn’t touch the follicle.
When you consider the amount of money you spend on razors, foam, cream, waxing products and salon treatments, you may find that laser hair removal saves you money in the long-run.
