Millions of people are tired of trying to maintain excessive hair growth – constantly waxing, tweezing and shaving – and decide to turn to laser hair removal procedures as a way to get rid of unwanted hair once and for all. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country, as thousands of people turn to this method each year to achieve smooth, hairless results. Dr. Seiger at the Skin and Veins Center helps hundreds of people find the results they crave.
Before laser hair removal, the typical patient has an area of their body where coarse or excessive hair is making them self-conscious or not responding well to typical hair removal procedures. Underarm hair, hair in the bikini line, back hair, facial hair and leg hair are common areas for laser hair removal.
The procedure uses a laser with beams of highly concentrated light to target each hair follicle and destroy it at the root. Laser hair removal is appropriate and effective for all hair types and skin colors, Dr. Seiger will recommend specific ways you can prepare for your hair removal process based on the texture and area of your unwanted hair.
Some of the benefits of laser hair removal include the speed of the procedure itself in which large areas of skin can be treated in a relatively short amount of time. Small areas of the face or body may take no more than a few minutes to treat while large areas generally don’t take more than an hour to target.
After laser hair removal, patients can expect to have a sunburn-like reaction for a couple of days afterward. Over the course of a month, the hair that has been treated will fall out until the whole area is hairless. Several treatments might be required to target each hair follicle fully. Once the hair has been taken out, it’s gone, and won’t grow back or has a much harder time growing, which makes this procedure well worth it for most patients.
