Everything you need to know about Laser Hair Removal
Most people and especially women get irritated by any hair that grows anywhere below the eyes. Shaving, plucking or tweezing doesn’t give a permanent solution to the unwanted hair. A more permanent solution worth trying out is laser hair removal.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that inhibits hair growth by exposing pulses of laser light to the roots of the hair and in the processdestroy the hair follicles.
Is it safe?
Safety always comes first. At Astra MediSpa we use Electro-Optical Energy (ELOS) that is more efficient and compared to other laser hair removal procedures. This procedure is 100% safe and the laser equipment is adjusted based on how sensitive your skin is, the target area, your skin color and the thickness of the hair. There are no chemicals used so you can be least assured that there won’t be any allergic reaction afterward.
Is it permanent?
Compared to other hair removal procedures, laser hair removal is more permanent due to the fact that it damages the bulbs in the hair follicles. However, permanent hair loss is not achieved in just one appointment. You have to be consistent with your sessions if you want to achieve permanent hair loss. So, take each and every session seriously!
Does it hurt?
This is the most asked question when it comes to this hair removal procedure. Everyone fears pain and why not? Unlike tweezing or body waxing, laser hair removal is less painful. With the advancementin technology the new laser equipment(an example being the one we use at Astra MediSpa) removes hair with minimal pain and discomfort. The pain is nothing you can’t handle but if you are too sensitive then a numb cream can be applied to your skin ease the pain.
Are there specific areas that this procedure cannot be used?
This procedure is suitable for every part of the body expect the areas too close to the eyes. If you are thinking of permanently removing hair around your bikini area then laser hair removal should be your top priority. The fact that no chemicals are used makes this process safe to be used on most part of the body.
Does it leave scars?
You can be least assured that no scars will be left when you use this laser procedure. The lasers light only focus on the hair follicles leaving the skin undamaged.
