28 Jul A Beginner’s Guide to Laser Hair Removal
If you’re a woman with unwanted facial hair, you can officially blame it on your estrogen hormones. As you get older, the supply of this critical hormone dips and can become unbalanced. One day you look in the mirror and are horrified to see a dark, course hair growing out of your chin. Then another. And another. Your tweezers go into overdrive.
Maybe your chin is blissfully absent of hair, but you find yourself with a girl mustache instead. What’s a girl to do?
The bikini area and underarms are other areas of the body where you can’t seem to get rid of the hair fast enough. You’re tired of shaving, but you would prefer not to be mistaken for a man. So you end up shaving anyway and just put up with the bumps, itching, and redness that it causes.
Speaking of men, they don’t always have it so easy either. No guy wants to have so much chest hair that he looks like a wildebeest. And who really likes having hairy back? The problem with any of these situations is that shaving the hair doesn’t make the area look much better and you have to suffer with the discomforts mentioned above. To add insult to injury, the unwanted hair seems to grow back faster and darker each time you try to get rid of it. Plucking and drugstore remedies don’t do much for you either.
A Better Solution
You have reached the point where you need a real solution, not another short-term fix. Laser hair removal is that solution. The highly focused light beams in each laser tool target and destroy the darkest pigmentation in your hair follicles. Men and women of any skin tone can benefit from this fast and painless procedure.
The Hair Growth Cycle and Laser Hair Removal
Like the hair on your scalp that you do want, unwanted body hair grows in cycles. Because of this, it’s usually necessary to undergo several sessions of laser hair removal to eliminate the facial, underarm, chest, back, leg, or arm hair that you don’t find especially attractive. Most people can plan on six to eight sessions of laser hair removal therapy to reduce unwanted body hair by up to 95 percent. Each session eliminates approximately 20 percent of the hair that you want removed.
You will need to wait several weeks between sessions for the best results. This ranges from four to 10 weeks depending on the area treated and pigmentation, length, and coarseness of the hair.
