If you are tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing unwanted hair then laser hair removal may be a great option for you. Laser hair removal is an effective treatment for unwanted hair on the body and is safe for all skin types. Laser hair removal is commonly used to diminish or remove hair on the legs, arms, bikini area, chest or face. Leaving skin smooth, soft, and hair free.
Laser hair removal beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles, the pigments in the hair absorb the light and the laser energy destroys the follicles. Laser targets dark coarse hair and therefore does not have an affect on blonde and grey hair. By targeting the darker pigment of hair it does not affect your skin leaving the surrounding area undamaged.
Laser hair removal is recommended in a series of treatments. Hair grows at different stages and it takes multiple treatments to target hair in the growing phase. Lasers only affect the follicle in the growth phase so by receiving 6 or more treatments each follicle is treated multiple times. Each treatment should diminish the hair and typically after 6 treatments you’ll see little to no hair. To maintain the smooth hair-free results most people will need touch up treatments periodically.
At Pure Bliss Med Spa we use the Cutera Xeo laser which uses ND:YAG technology. The Xeo is FDA approved for all skin types. If interested in laser hair removal please contact our office today for a free consultation.
