Laser Hair Removal
Although there are a number of temporary methods to remove unsightly hair such as shaving, waxing, or threading, only laser hair removal provides permanent hair removal. Laser hair removal is practically painless and the results last for a long time. Dr. Pascual uses the best and latest technology that utilizes the most efficient wavelength amalgamation in laser hair removal, so contact her clinic in Miami to make an appointment.
Unwanted facial hair, as well as hair found on other parts of the body may take up a lot of time if removed regularly and on a daily basis. With laser hair removal treatment, unwanted hair is permanently reduced within a couple of treatments.
Laser Hair Removal Procedure
With the exact amalgamation of laser beam wavelength and extended pulse, each hair follicle is specifically targeted without causing damage to the surrounding skin. The laser beam wavelength causes localized injury to the targeted follicle causing hair growth to be obstructed by destroying the melanin.
Is the laser hair removal procedure painful?
Most patients report a minor stinging and sensation of warmth while the procedure is going on. Other than that, the procedure is painless and it does not have harmful side effects. The laser hair removal procedure only targets the specific hair follicle leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. Because of this, there is no reason why pain should be felt by the patient.
What are the benefits of having laser hair removal?
Aside from having a permanent reduction and removal of unwanted hair, this procedure is painless compared to other methods of unwanted hair removal. In addition, the procedure is safe and is relatively quick; you do not need to worry about skin irritation, ingrown hair or bumps caused by waxing, shaving, plucking, and threading. What is more, laser hair removal is efficient in reducing and removing hairs from all the parts of the body.
All in all, having laser hair removal frees you from the daily hassles of temporarily removing unwanted hair, and allows you to spend your time attending to important matters. Also, it is economically sound as opposed to regular trips to expensive salons for hair removal treatments.
How many laser hair removal treatments do I need in order to see results?
Thanks to the latest innovation in laser hair removal, what used to be 12 sessions of laser hair removal now only takes 6 sessions for visibly successful results. Because the laser treatment works differently in various phases of the hair growth cycle, it is best that the 6 sessions are all taken in order to see successful and long lasting results.
Is there a chance of the unwanted hair returning after I have completed the treatment?
Success in having total hair removal varies from one patient to another. However, the majority of patients report total reduction and removal of unwanted hair after completing the treatment. On the other hand, some patients report some re-growth, but the hair is very much thinner and lighter compared to how it used to be.
