Since time immemorial, women (but also some men) tried to find the best way to get rid of the unwanted hair on their bodies. Waxing, plucking, using hot sugar or a razor – they made the best out of whatever technology was available at a given time. Luckily, today we no longer have to worry about the pain we feel or the short duration of our efforts: laser hair removal at the Sparkle, Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre in Barrie, Ontario is now more efficient and more affordable than ever.
What is laser hair removal?
This innovative method sends laser beams underneath your skin, attacking the hair follicle directly. You can use this efficient method on your face, as well as on any area of the body with excellent results. Laser hair removal works best on people with dark hair and light skin, as the laser targets the follicle better when the contrast is bigger. However, people with other combinations of hair-skin can also have results; it will just take longer.
When can I expect to see results?
Depending on the area you choose, as well as on your hair and skin characteristics, it takes 6-10 sessions for the hair to disappear completely. These sessions have to be at least 3 weeks apart because the laser works best on hairs that are in the growth phase. The “breaks” between sessions ensure that new hairs have reached the growth phase and can be removed by laser.
If you choose to have laser hair removal at the Sparkle, Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre in Barrie, Ontario, you can expect to see results in 6-10 days after the first session. This is how long it takes for the hairs that have been treated to fall on their own.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
No, laser hair removal is a minimally-invasive and pain-free procedure. At most, you will feel something similar to having a rubber band snapped against your skin. When we perform laser hair removal at the Sparkle, Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre in Barrie, Ontario we care a lot about our patients’ comfort. Thus, if you are more sensitive to pain, we can always apply a numbing cream before the procedure.
Do I need to take any special precautions?
When undergoing laser hair removal treatment, you should not pluck the hairs on the area to be treated. Two weeks before the first session and until the end of all sessions, you should only use a razor. The hair follicle needs to be intact so that the laser can find it and neutralize it. Also, you should avoid sun exposure. This doesn’t mean that you can’t have laser hair removal during summer; it just means that you will have to use a high SPF cream until the treatment is completed in order to avoid sun spotting.
