Top Winter Procedure – Laser Hair Removal
Since patients are advised to avoid tanning at least one month prior to laser hair removal, many people choose to do it in the winter, making it a top winter procedure.
The speed and convenience of laser hair removal has helped to boost its popularity within the last decade. The continued advancements in laser technology and the emergence of safer, more efficient laser devices that do the job quickly, with minimal discomfort, has also made it more attractive.
About laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is a welcome alternative to the traditional methods of removing unwanted hair, such as shaving, tweezing, and plucking. The procedure involves the use of laser light that destroys the hair follicle, and ends new hair growth. The focused light penetrates the skin, and is absorbed by the pigment at the base of the follicle, but it does not affect the surrounding skin.
Laser hair removal has several benefits over traditional methods:
- Speed – Depending on the size of the area being treated, and the laser being used, laser hair removal can be done in 15 minutes.
- Safety – Laser hair removal is considered a safe procedure, and there are no long term side effects.
- Minimal Discomfort – Unlike traditional methods like electrolysis that can be extremely painful, laser hair removal is virtually painless. This is due to the fact that most lasers have a built-in cooling system, which minimizes pain.
