Is Laser Hair Removal Safe For Teens?
For teens, excess body hair isn’t just an annoyance – it can be a significant source of embarrassment. Think about it this way: If your teen feels embarrassed about wearing a bathing suit or even a t-shirt to school, it’s likely that he or she is defining his or her worth based on that excess body hair.
Fortunately, your teen doesn’t have to put up with extra back hair, arm fuzz, and even facial hair – and it’s all thanks to laser hair removal. This innovative treatment destroys hair follicles at their root, causing them to fall out and reveal smoother, fuzz-free hair.
But if you’re a parent whose teen is begging for laser hair removal, you might have one question on your mind:
“Is laser hair removal safe for teens?” The answer is a resounding yes!
At Rocheford Plastic Surgery in Woodbury, MN – serving the greater St. Paul/Minneapolis metro areas – board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Heather Rocheford uses Diolaze technology. This treatment is the gold standard for laser hair removal, as it delivers uncompromised power and energy to the desired areas. This speed and efficiency – combined with built-in safeguards – make Diolaze an excellent choice for teens interested in laser hair removal.
Here are just a few additional perks to choosing Diolaze for laser hair removal:
• It’s an industry gold standard for delivering optimal results in less time;
• It can target and treat even the most stubborn hair types;
• It’s virtually painless, thanks to built-in cooling; and
• It can be used to treat a variety of skin types and colors.
The number of sessions your teen will need depends on the treatment area, his or her hair type, and skin type. Expect to attend a minimum of six sessions in order to see optimal results. Your teen may want to use a cold compress to ease any aches or pains after the initial treatment. Redness and swelling is common, but it usually dissipates within a couple of hours.
