Are you sick and tired of unwanted hair? Laser hair removal is a better solution than waxing and shaving because it doesn’t cause skin irritation. The best part is the results of this treatment are long-lasting so you don’t have to worry about daily or weekly maintenance. How soon will you start to see the results of your treatment? You can get the answer to this question about this popular hair removal method at Pristine Med Spa in Ridgecrest, CA.
What Results Can I Expect From Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is designed to eliminate unwanted hair permanently. Picture waking up in the morning to the feeling of your blanket on your smooth skin rather than grazing your stubble. Besides eliminating unwanted hair, this treatment eliminates razor bumps, razor burn, rashes and pained hair follicles. For happier, healthier skin, never wax or shave again.
How Does This Treatment Remove Unwanted Hair?
The primary problem with waxing or shaving is these methods don’t cure your problem. They only treat it. When you wax or shave, your unwanted hair always returns. Laser hair removal accesses the follicles that the hair grows from using light technology. Thanks to the heat emitted by this light, your follicles are damaged and cannot grow any new hair. The hairs that were already produced by the follicles fall out, leaving behind only flawlessly smooth skin.
If these benefits of treatment weren’t amazing enough, wait until you learn how advanced the science behind it is. The lasers we use to perform this treatment are FDA-approved and emit light made up of many different wavelengths. The laser light hones in on the melanin that colors your hair, leaving the surrounding skin untouched. Due to this, your unwanted hair can be removed but none of the surrounding tissue will be damaged.
This Treatment Is Completely Safe
Set aside any concerns you may have about the safety of this hair removal method. The medical-grade lasers we use were designed specifically to remove unwanted hair safely. These lasers can remove unwanted hair from men and women effectively without irritating or damaging the skin at all. Also, the treatment process isn’t painful. People who have received this treatment describe the feeling as akin to having a rubber band being snapped gently against your skin.
How Soon Can the Initial Results of Your Treatment Be Seen?
Within just a few days of your treatment, you will see that your visible hair has fallen out. After that point, your skin remains smooth for approximately the same amount of time as it does when you wax. To maintain your results, you should schedule a follow-up session roughly four to six weeks after your initial session.
Don’t stress, though; with repeat treatments, you can enjoy results that are virtually permanent. Once you’ve finished several sessions, you will only need a quick laser hair removal touch-up approximately annually.
How Quickly Can You Enjoy the Final Results?
Your treatment sessions are spaced four to six weeks apart due to the growth cycle of your hair. To give you a better understanding of why your treatments are scheduled like they are, you need to understand your hair growth cycle. This is what you need to know about the growth cycle of your hair:
The Hair Growth Cycle
From your head to your legs, all of the hair on your body cycles through multiple stages:
- The growth phase
- The transitional phase
- The resting phase
- The release phase
Regarding your hair removal sessions, the active phase, also known as the anagen phase, is the most important. During the anagen phase, you can see your hair above your skin’s surface. Your laser treatment only targets hairs that are in this phase of the hair growth cycle. A few weeks after your first session, you will start noticing new hairs; these hairs are visible because they were in the transitional (catagen) phase during your initial session.
After several sessions, all of your follicles will be treated and you will not grow any more hair. We schedule each session a few weeks apart to let other follicles cycle back to the growth phase. A few days after your final round of treatments, you can enjoy your final results.
How Many Treatment Sessions You Can Expect to Need
How long each session takes, and how many sessions you need, depends on the part of the body you’re trying to treat. Depending on the part of the body you are treating, you may need between five and 10 sessions. Most commonly, we treat the:
- Bikini line
- Brazilian area
Most of these areas require only six treatment sessions. Want to learn a couple of fun facts? You can use this treatment anywhere but your eyelashes. Also, it only takes six to nine months to see the final results of your treatment.
