Some people are naturally born with more hair than others while other individuals find that hair starts to grow in unwanted places as they get older. Since this excessive hair can be embarrassing, people spend hours of their time shaving, plucking, or waxing to remove it, only to have to repeat the process just a few days or weeks later. Additionally, many temporary hair removal treatments, such as plucking and waxing are also painful. Fortunately, advances in laser hair removal have made it possible for most people to have a permanent solution to unwanted hair. The first step in laser hair removal is to cut the hair very close to your skin. Then you will be provided with eye protection to wear during the treatment. The next step involves directing the concentrated pulses of light into the treatment area to remove the hair after which ice and soothing gel are applied to the skin. Depending on the size of the area where you want hair removed, this process may be repeated several times. After the procedure, you might notice that you skin appears slightly red. This will disappear within a couple of days. If you want to have hair removed from a large area, you many need to return for a second session in about two to four weeks. The results of laser hair removal are evident immediately after treatment.
