It’s a good question to ask yourself, and if you are, you’ve come to the right place. Hair removal is a cosmetic procedure done today that removes unwanted hair from the body with a pulse of light. Now, I know that it’s easy to think that this means that it must take forever to actually remove hundreds, and possibly thousands, of hairs, but it’s actually much faster than that. Hair removal lasers can actually fire several pulses at one time and many times per second.
This means that hair removal is actually a fast process. You can even do it at home now, although it can be expensive to buy the machine needed for the job. So, just how much hair can it remove in just one second? It depends on the equipment your local salon is carrying, but generally, a laser can remove the hair in a one-inch diameter.
Now, why would someone get laser hair removal? The easiest answer is convenience, but there are other cosmetic reasons as to why as well. For some people, embarrassing and unwanted hair can affect a person’s self-confidence and their own self-worth.
This unwanted hair can be in several places. For women especially, having thick dark hair on the chin in something that they might consider unattractive and undesirable. The same issue can be found with visible hair above the lip. This is where laser hair removal is most effective as laser hair removal is best used against thick, dark hair.
In some cases, the desire for hair removal is simply cosmetic and there’s nothing wrong with that. Laser hair removal is quite effective for unwanted facial hair, hair under the armpit, leg hair, and even to ensure you have a great looking biking line! The only place where you shouldn’t have laser hair removal done is anywhere directly on or around your eyelids.
There are just some things to keep in mind if you do decide to have it done: first of all, never think that just anyone can do it. A person who does laser hair removal needs to have proper training and must be able to ensure your safety during the process.
Always make sure that anyone who is going to perform this procedure on you has certification to do it.The most important thing you need to do before you go for treatment is to consult with your doctor. This may seem unnecessary, but it is very important to do, because your doctor may know things about your skin that you don’t. He can also ask you some basic questions to ensure that you don’t have any adverse effects as a result of getting treatment.
As always be certain that you are aware of the risks associated with laser removalbefore you get in that chair! Expect that, once the procedure is done, you might experience some redness or swelling in the treated areas. This should only be temporary and not permanent. There might also be some changes to skin pigmentation, but this is pretty rare.
