Waxing, plucking, and shaving are extremely tedious activities for many men and women. Did you know that a cosmetic procedure called laser hair removal can help you reduce unwanted hair so that you can spend more time in activities that you enjoy?
Laser hair removal has quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. We use a cosmetic laser to direct energy into hair follicles, which destroys them and prevents the growth of unwanted hair in the treatment area. After a series of treatments , you will no longer need to remove hair on your own.
Some patients wonder why they will need more than one laser hair removal session. The reason is that individual hairs actually grow in staggered hair growth cycles. While one hair is in its growth phase, another may be in a dormant phase. Hairs in their dormant phase fall out until a growth phase resumes. So having multiple sessions allows us to target your hair in the treatment area when more of it happens to be in a growth phase.
Patients who respond best to this treatment have darker colored hair and lighter skin, however, with advanced laser technology, such as the lasers we use at VITAHL, we can actually treat all skin types for laser hair removal. Patients with a light hair color may still benefit from the procedure but may not always obtain optimal results. We can determine at your consultation whether your skin tone and hair color will respond well to this treatment.
At VITAHL, our laser hair removal lasers have a cooling mechanism that helps decrease sensitivity as well as protect the skin during the treatment. It is this advanced technology that allows us to treat a wide range of patients with laser hair removal.
