Hate Shaving? Cancel it!
We all know the moment well. Your friend calls you up for a beach day after the busiest of weeks. You pack everything you need for a relaxing day, head to the beach, and unload the essentials for a great day. Next, it’s time to take off the cover-up. *Gasp* you forgot to shave! Now the beach day is foiled by your obsessive need to hide any and all unwanted hair. Take action now to ban these embarrassing moments for good—with laser hair removal!
Let’s start by reviewing how the science works. During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hair. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Laser hair removal can treat the bikini area, legs, armpits, back, chest, face (especially the upper lip and chin), neck, and shoulders. That’s right, no more plucking, shaving, or waxing hair in any uncomfortable places!
Laser hair removal usually requires a series of two to six treatments to see major results. The amount of treatments needed varies for patients and depends on the contrast of color between your complexion and hair color. The contrast of color between the skin and pigment in the hair follicle is what allows the laser to easily pick out what to target, so laser hair removal works best on fair skin with dark hair. If there is less contrast in color, the hair may require more treatments.
Smaller areas, like the chin, can be treated within minutes and generally require less time between treatments, while larger areas, like the legs, require more time in the office and between treatments.
While laser hair removal doesn’t get rid of hair forever, it does drastically reduce hair growth—to the point that you can stop shaving altogether. What is a world without the need to shave? A great one! Save time, money, and stress; give us a call today and schedule your free consultation with one of our experts here at MediSpa Maui.
