What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal Overview

If you have unwanted body hair and are fed up with shaving, waxing, and tweezing, then laser hair removal could be the answer to all of your prayers. Unlike other temporary hair removal procedures, laser hair removal is permanent, destroying the hair follicle so that your unwanted body hair will never grow back

During your laser hair removal treatment, one of our experienced practitioners will apply a localized numbing cream to the area to ensure that you feel no pain during the procedure. They will then use a purpose-built handset that has been calibrated to your skin type, skin color, hair color, and hair thickness to administer intense pulses of light. 

These intense pulses of light will heat and destroy your unwanted hair follicles while leaving your skin unharmed. Over the course of several treatments, the destroyed hair follicles will eventually fall from the body entirely, leaving you with far more delicate and less noticeable body hair in your affected areas.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the US, enabling men and women to regain confidence in their skin by removing their unwanted body hair. Some of the benefits of a laser hair removal treatment include; 

It’s Efficiency 

The lasers used during laser hair removal are extremely precise and can be used to selectively target dark and coarse hairs whilst leaving the surrounding skin completely unharmed. Each pulse of light only takes a fraction of a second to administer and can treat a quarter-sized area every second. This means that even more extensive hair removal treatments, such as those on the legs, only take around one hour. 

Permanent Hair Loss 

Unlike shaving, waxing, and tweezing, laser hair removal offers a permanent solution. Most laser hair removal patients see permanent hair loss in their affected areas within three to seven sessions, depending on their hair type and thickness.

No Downtime 

As a non-surgical procedure, laser hair removal also has no downtime allowing patients to get back to their routine straight away. In fact, the process is so efficient that many patients choose to schedule their hair removal treatment on their lunch break.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal can be used to treat unwanted hair on any part of the body, including the upper lip, arms, legs, armpits, face, brows, ears, back, and bikini area. After the procedure, we advise that patients apply a copper moisturizer or aloe vera gel to the treatment area to help reduce redness and warn against the use of tanning beds and tanning creams for two weeks whilst the area heals. Here at Manhatten Aesthetics, our lasers are safe for many different skin tones ranging from 1-6, making virtually anyone with unwanted hair on their body or face a good candidate for laser hair removal. To ensure that you are a good candidate, your hair removal specialist will assess your skin type and hair condition at the time of your initial consultation.
