Shaving, plucking, and waxing unwanted body hair is a tiring and time-consuming activity for most people. However, keeping the bikini area and other parts of the body hair-free is important for good hygiene so you have to endure these painful hair removal methods.
But at Dr. V Medical Aesthetics, we solve this problem using safe and effective laser hair removal treatments for both male and female patients. By targeting the dark hair follicle of the hair shaft, a patient can get rid of hair in the underarms, legs, bikini area, and other parts of the body – quickly and painlessly.
By getting a laser hair removal treatment at Dr. V Medical Aesthetics, you can experience the best procedure that hair removal methods have to offer. There’s no need to feel conscious about hair peeking out when you’re wearing a bikini – our highly trained staff can help you remove unwanted body hair for good.
Laser treatments are widely used in a plethora of medical and cosmetic procedures, like laser skin resurfacing and laser body hair removal. This minimally invasive procedure is a popular way to get rid of unwanted hair in the sensitive areas of the body and prevent them from growing so patients don’t have to worry about stray hairs for at least a few months.
During the procedure, the doctor uses a special device that delivers intensely focused laser light to the hair in the treatment areas. The light energy penetrates deep into the skin and reaches the pigment of each hair follicle.
As the follicle heats up, it becomes useless and unable to grow a hair shaft. For the treatment to be more effective, it’s important to perform it while the hair is still in its growth phase. Because of this, multiple treatment sessions are recommended to completely eliminate unwanted hair.
What’s great about this procedure is that it removes unwanted body hair without harming the surface of the skin, so patients don’t need to worry about scarring. By causing the hair to fall out and preventing the follicle from growing new shafts, patients can enjoy a safe and quick hair removal treatment that lasts for several months – no matter where the unwanted hairs are in the body.
Laser hair removal treatments offer several benefits for patients:
While laser hair removal treatments are generally safe, it’s important to find an experienced aesthetician or laser technician in a reputable medical spa to perform the treatment for you. This ensures that you’re getting high-quality treatments and easy access to better care in case of side effects or complications.
The good news is that laser hair removal’s benefits aren’t just limited to simple hair removal. This treatment is also useful for reducing and preventing active acne in the treated areas.
Acne is often caused by different factors, including oily skin, ingrown hairs, and the presence of bacteria on the skin’s surface. For many patients, the clump of body and facial hair is a harbor for the acne-causing bacteria. The ingrown hairs also facilitate the growth of these bacteria and further inflame or irritate the surrounding skin.
Laser hair removal treatments are a huge help in reducing acne by minimizing the hairy areas where bacteria might cling onto and grow. Less ingrown hairs also mean less irritation and bumpy surfaces on the skin. Many patients experienced fewer acne breakouts in the treated sites and noticed a significant improvement in the skin’s texture.
However, laser hair removal shouldn’t be considered the sole treatment for reducing acne. It’s still better to consult a dermatologist or skincare expert about the cause of your breakouts and the best way to deal with them depending on your skin type.
Laser treatments work better than most hair removal methods in keeping certain parts of your body hair-free. You’re a good candidate for permanent hair reduction treatment if you:
A: Yes, but they’re mostly minor. Patients may experience redness, swelling, and other mild symptoms in the treated area but they eventually subside after a few days. Changes in skin color are also quite common especially for those with darker skin tone, but the color eventually returns to normal.
A: No. Rather than seeing the treated hair immediately fall out after the laser hair removal session, patients shed them over the following weeks. Multiple treatments are recommended so patients can ensure that all the unwanted hair in the treatment area is removed.
A: The exact number of treatment sessions depends on the amount of hair and size of the treatment area. To know more about the customized treatment plan for you, make sure to consult with our experts at Dr. V Medical Aesthetics today.
