Living free of unwanted hair is something many of us long for. When unpleasant hair grows in, our first instinct is to reach for a razer or waxing solution. Though both of those are effective options, they can lead to a tremendous amount of irritation and discomfort. When it comes to living hair-free, the best hair removal options for both men and women alike are lasers. At Fresh Aesthetics, our laser hair reduction services can give you the smoothness you’ve always wanted without razor burn, irritation, or downtime! If you’re interested, schedule your FREE consultation today to see how we can help.
What Is Laser Hair Reduction?
Laser hair reduction is an excellent means of eliminating unwanted body hair without the unpleasant side effects of traditional shaving. At Fresh Aesthetics, we perform laser hair reduction treatments at our Twin Falls, Idaho center. This process involves the use of a laser handpiece being glided against your skin. The treatment takes little time and can deliver effective, long-lasting results without downtime!
How Does Laser Hair Reduction Work?
Hair grows in three distinct stages in the follicle. The process begins with the active growth stage (anagen), followed by the dormant stage (catagen), and the shedding or falling out stage (telogen). Our laser hair reduction system is only effective on hairs in the anagen growth stage. When activated and pressed against the skin, our laser emits pulses that are then absorbed by the hair and converted to heat. This process damages the hair at the root, or follicle, eliminating or significantly impeding the hair’s growth.
How Should I Prepare for My Treatment?
During your FREE consultation, we will take the time to discuss the procedure to make sure you’re comfortable. If our hair reduction treatment is right for you, we will ask that you shave the entire treatment area prior to your appointment. However, refrain from tweezing or using wax at least two weeks before and in-between treatments as these approaches can irritate the skin and cause complications. When you come in for your consultation, please let us know if you have any medical conditions including herpes, lupus, melanoma, keloids, psoriasis, and pigmentary problems. Additionally, let us know if you are currently on any medications.
What Can I Expect During Laser Hair Reduction?
During your treatment session, our laser head will make contact with your treatment area and move quickly across your skin while emitting pulsing light. Tolerance to the procedure varies from patient to patient, but most of our clients don’t report any discomfort. Our laser disperses a pulse of cryogen that hits the skin before the laser does, making the treatment very comfortable and easy to handle. Most clients are very surprised at how comfortable it is.
What Results Can I Expect?
You can experience hair particle shedding after about 5-21 days following your laser hair reduction treatment. At first, it may initially seem like hair is continuing to grow, but this is the treated hair pushing its way out of the follicle. You may help the hair exfoliate by washing and wiping it away gently with a washcloth. Once this hair has been depleted, hair re-growth may occur, but at different rates on different areas of the body. New hair growth will not occur for at least three weeks after the treatment. For best results, we recommend coming in for 5-8 treatment sessions. For hormonal areas, such as the face, underarms, and bikini, we recommend treatments every four weeks. For other areas, such as arms and legs, every eight weeks. When you come in for your first visit, we will determine the best schedule to suit your needs.
