Unwanted body hair has been a complaint of men and women for ages! Scammers prey on body hair-haters by promoting questionable products that supposedly “permanently” remove unwanted hair. But the truth is, really permanent solutions have only been seen with the use of laser technology.

Here’s more about laser hair removal:

How does it work?

Pulsing laser light targets the coloration in the hair follicles, effectively preventing the regrowth of hair in that particular area. The beauty of laser treatments is that they do not damage the pores nor do they damage the skin tissue surrounding the hair follicles, so the treatment is minimally invasive.

Do I only have to get treatment once?

The simple answer to the above question is “no.” Most areas targeted for laser hair removal will require 3 to 6 visits in order to obtain the most permanent results. How many treatments you’ll need depends on: (a) your skin type and hair color and (b) the growth cycle of your hair. Of course, if you are having large areas done such as your back or legs, the number of visits will be greater than for smaller areas.

Does it hurt?

Some people experience a slight pinching sensation, but today’s virtually painless laser hair removal techniques allow the removal device to glide gently over the skin, creating a cooling sensation that is not at all unpleasant. Those who have extremely sensitive skin have the option of applying a topical anesthetic prior to treatment if they wish to. Some swelling and reddening can be expected after each treatment, but these symptoms subside within a matter of a few hours.

Laser hair removal is so popular that engineers are constantly improving the technology, creating better and better methods for permanent hair removal every year.

Where can I get painless laser hair removal?

There are many experienced professionals who can help you finally get rid of your unwanted hair. It is best to search out a venue, like a medical spa, where the services are performed by a licensed Master Esthetician who is under the supervision of a certified doctor. It is also important to check their technology. Some spas may advertise cheaper prices, and this may be because they perform services with an older, less effective laser. TimeLess Medical Spa in Ogden, UT offers the latest technology in laser hair removal.

Thanks to painless laser hair removal, you really do have options besides old-fashioned treatments like shaving, waxing, or using depilatories. Laser hair removal really is a beautiful thing!
