Removing unwanted hair can be a tedious task. Depending on your preferred method, you may even end up suffering from ingrown hairs or other forms of irritation. Dry, itchy skin is another common side effect of methods like shaving, while waxing and tweezing come with their set of frustrating outcomes. With laser hair removal, you have the option to remove unwanted hair from virtually any part of the body. The best part is that ingrown hairs and dry skin can be a thing of the past.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Unlike other forms of hair removal/reduction that cut or physically remove the hair in some way, laser hair removal damages the hair follicles so that the hair simply falls out. Once the follicle of hair in certain growth cycles has been damaged, the hair is more likely to grow back thinner and lighter than before. That is why lasers are an effective means of hair reduction as well as removal.
What to Expect
The length of the treatment session depends on how large of an area you are having treated. Most sessions take an hour or less, however. The treatment itself has little to no discomfort associated with it, and most patients report feeling like they have a sunburn when they leave our office. Ice packs can be used to help with the discomfort.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
This depends on your personal goals and how much hair you have. Some patients are satisfied after just a few treatment sessions, while others end up needing or wanting more. The maximum number of treatments, on average, is six. You can consult with our professionals when you visit our practice and they can give you an idea of how many treatments you will need to reach your goals.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Virtually anyone who is interested in hair removal/reduction is a good candidate for this treatment. When you visit our professionals at Allure Enhancement Center they can inform you of other qualifiers that might exist, such as skin tone or hair type and color.
