How does laser hair removal work?

Are you frustrated with the constant maintenance of hair removal? It is certainly no fun shaving, waxing and tweezing only to get results that leave you with ingrown hair, wax burn, razor burn and the list can go on.

Did you know that laser hair removal treatments are best started in the fall/ winter? Are you curious why that is? Well, for one, you are receiving less exposure to the sun; It's best to avoid a sunburn prior to treatment and post treatment. And secondly, your skin is closer to its natural color. We call this Laser Season! This will help you get the most effective results.

Laser hair removal is one of the top requested cosmetic procedures in the U.S. Curious on how laser hair removal works?

The laser gives out a concentrated light which converts to heat and causes damage to the hair follicles. The existing hair falls off and depending on the hair growth cycle at the time of the treatment, any future hair growth is either prevented or delayed. The heat from the laser beam can cause discomfort in some areas.

The length of time for each session depends on the area being treated. Typically, patients see results anywhere from two to six treatments per area and the intervals between appointments are usually spaced four to eight weeks. 

Save time and money by calling Begin with Skin MedSpa for a free laser hair removal consultation.
