Laser hair removal has been spoken of for some time and has grown in popularity as the best method for getting rid of our unwanted body hair – for good! From toes to armpits, and backs to bikini lines, the treatment promises lasting smooth skin. This is why we’re very excited to introduce it to our wonderful clients at KP Aesthetics in Hale, Altrincham.
The word ‘laser’ may leave some of us feeling a little intimidated. However, as a qualified aesthetic nurse with thorough professional training, I promise to put you at ease. Here, I share with you the wonders of laser hair removal and why you should book your first appointment today.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by directing a concentrated beam of light at the treatment area. This light is then absorbed by the pigment thereby damaging the hair follicle and causing destruction to the root. When the root is destroyed, it can no longer produce hair. Laser hair removal is effective on large areas as well as small. The treatment takes place over a number of sessions because hair follicles are active in cycles. Therefore, in the first treatment the follicles with actively growing hair can be destroyed, but the inactive cells will need to be targeted in the next session. This process is repeated until you are happy with your beautifully smooth skin.
Why Switch to Laser Hair Removal?
We all have our preferences which are usually one or a combination of shaving, waxing, removal creams. Each comes with its pros and cons; however laser hair removal is overwhelmingly in favour of the pros. In an average of six sessions you can expect to live your life without the hassle of spending time and money on a six-weekly wax, or constantly staying longer in the shower to shave, or having your skin irritated by another tube of hair removal cream. Unlike the pain experienced time and again on the waxing table, or by the nick of a razor blade, laser hair removal only causes minor pain and discomfort. You should anticipate a little discomfort up to two days after each treatment and for any exposed area, be sure to apply plentiful SPF lotions for a few days.
Give Your Body a Confidence Boost
When it comes to appearances, we are our own worst critic. Unwanted body hair which is visible to any extent is more apparent to us than to anyone else. In spite of this, it can really kick at our confidence. A lot of people who opt for laser hair removal will choose for the sake of convenience. Practically permanent and with minimal side effects, it is certainly an advocate for timely resolutions to the fuzzy bits on our body. However, where we have particularly dark or thick hair, on our face for example, laser hair removal can be something of a saving grace. Laser hair removal treatment is proven to be very effective on even dark and thick hair. Since it works gently and precisely, small areas such as the upper lip, in between the eyebrows, and the nose can enduringly benefit from the laser treatment leaving you looking and feeling fabulous.
Laser Hair Removal For Men
That’s right; hair removal isn’t designated to the ladies alone. And men are becoming more and more aware of it. Across the board we have seen an enormous rise in men’s interest in aesthetic treatments as the men’s health, hair and beauty, and skincare market has experienced exponential growth. Covering everywhere from head to toe, laser hair removal is the best solution to eradicating unwanted hair which is ordinarily thicker on men than women. It also prevents ingrown hairs that frequently arise from shaving and waxing. Oh, and there should be no fear of the pain suffered in a particular scene of a certain Steve Carrel film at the hand of waxing; laser hair removal causes minor discomfort and leaves a sensation similar to sunburn for up to a couple of days after treatment.
