The summer heat is certainly on, and it’s not too late to flaunt beautiful, smooth, bikini-ready skin with the help of Louisville laser hair removal. So if you’re tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing and eager to say goodbye to unwanted hair once and for all, then now’s a great time to look into this very popular aesthetic treatment!
How does Louisville laser hair removal get rid of unwanted hair?
Laser hair removal permanently reduces hair growth by gently penetrating the skin and targeting the darker pigment (or melanin) of hair follicles in desired areas. The revolutionary laser technology safely destroys the follicles in the process and leaves you with smooth, soft skin minus the threat of razor burn and unsightly bumps.
Which areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can safely be used on the following areas to permanently get rid of unwanted hair:
- Along the Bikini Line
Men and women of all skin types and tones can benefit from laser hair removal treatments.
How many Louisville laser hair removal treatments will I need?
Laser hair removal isn’t usually a one-and-done treatment. That’s because your hair follicles are at different stages of their growth at any given time. A series of treatments must be scheduled to make sure each hair in the desired area gets exposed to the laser. Your provider will likely schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later, and you’ll get treatments until hair stops growing completely.
What should I do to prepare for Louisville laser hair removal?
If you are planning on getting laser hair removal treatment, your provider will recommend you limit plucking and waxing for about six weeks before your session. The reason being because the laser targets pigment in the roots of the hair. As these are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking, the laser won’t have roots to zap.
Also, be sure to avoid sun exposure for six weeks before (as well as after) treatment. The sun’s rays and the effects they have on the skin can cause the laser to be less effective and make any potential complications more likely after treatment.
Is laser hair removal painful, and what can I expect afterwards?
Laser hair removal isn’t painful per se, but the skin of the treatment area will likely be tender and appear to have a mild sunburn for about 24-48 hours after your session. We will apply ice packs to the treated area to maximize comfort. You’ll want to avoid any prolonged sun exposure for a few days following treatment. Most patients resume their daily activities when treatment is complete. Once your skin is completely healed, you can be ready to soak up those summer rays before cooler weather rolls around.
As far as results, it generally takes 2-3 weeks after your first treatment to notice a difference in the hair growth of the area, with full results occurring in about 8-12 treatments. We’ll be sure to go over all those details of exactly what you can expect during your consultation.
