The process of constantly grooming unwanted hair can become a major hassle very quickly. It is time consuming, costly, and often painful. Wouldn’t it be nice to get rid of this chore once andfor all? With laser hair removal, you can say goodbye to your razor, tweezers, and wax as youenjoy a hair-free existence.
Laser hair removal is a procedure that employs an intense, pulsating laser to remove unwanted hair. As the laser passes through your skin, its intense heat damages the hair follicle, slowing future hair growth. While laser hair removal is highly effective at treating unwanted hair, it does not provide for permanent hair removal. You will generally need several treatment sessions before you can experience long-term results.
The following criteria will help you determine if you are an ideal candidate for laser hair removal:
Your laser hair removal procedure will be performed at one of our Facial Aesthetics medical spa treatment centers in Denver and Greenwood Village , Colorado. Depending on the size of the treatment region, your procedure may take as little as one hour or last as long as several hours. It is important to remember that you may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
Our Denver aestheticians will apply a numbing lotion to the treatment region to minimize discomfort. A high-intensity pulsed light laser beam will treat the region to remove hair follicles while preserving the skin around the treatment area. The laser will be able to scan a wide area of your body during the process, making it much more quick and efficient than electrolysis.
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and you should be able to resume normal activities immediately following your hair removal treatment. However, you should refrain from vigorous exercise, Jacuzzi use, and sun tanning for at least 24 hours.
You should gently clean the treatment region with mild soap after the procedure and apply any lotions that we may prescribe for use. You should only experience minimal discomfort. However, if you notice the presence of red or white bumps, ingrown hairs, or scabs, contact us immediately.
You will want to wait to begin follow-up sessions until hair has started to grow under the skin. This may take up to 12 weeks.
