Laser Hair Removal

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the most effective way to get rid of your body hair. Using a powerful laser device, the team at Highstyle Laser Center targets areas of body hair that you specify. The heat from the laser disables your hair follicles ability to produce hair. 

During the process, the laser vaporizes the existing hairs. To remove your body hair completely, you may need two to six initial treatments.

After that, the results of each session last for months or even years. You can book maintenance appointments when your hair begins to grow back. Keep in mind that your individual results may vary. 

What areas can I target with laser hair removal?

You can target nearly any area of your body that you normally shave, wax, or tweeze. Common targeted areas for laser hair removal are:

  • Chest
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Face
  • Bikini area

The treatments aren’t recommended close to your eyes. During your session, you and your provider will wear protective eyewear to keep your eyes protected regardless of the area you’re targeting. 

What are the advantages of laser hair removal over other hair removal methods?

Most women and some men are in constant pursuit of touchably smooth and hair-free skin, going through the trouble of shaving, waxing, or plucking their hairs on a weekly basis.

Laser hair removal has many advantages over traditional methods that keeps patients returning for more. They include:

  • No razor burn or bumps
  • No cuts
  • Minimal discomfort (you’ll be given a numbing cream for sensitive areas)
  • Fewer ingrown hairs
  • Quick procedures
  • Long-lasting results
  • Immediate results

After your initial series of several laser hair removal treatments, you won’t have to worry about your body hair for months. This saves you time and hot water (if you shave in the shower).

What are the side effects of laser hair removal?

Despite helping you avoid many routine complications of shaving and painful waxing or plucking, laser hair removal comes with a few of its own mild side effects, including:

  • Discomfort
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Skin color changes

These side effects typically go away in less than three days. The team at Highstyle Laser Center will answer all of your questions about potential side effects before your procedure.

Silky smooth skin doesn’t have to take daily or even weekly effort. Call Highstyle Laser Center or go online to book a consultation for laser hair removal today.
