Temporary methods of hair removal can be painful and frustrating, and your unwanted hair is sure to return. Shaving, waxing, and other methods of hair removal consume a lot of time and the results do not last long. Many people turn to laser technology to help reduce their hair on their bodies. Dr. Ali offers Laser Hair Removal as a treatment for unwanted hair in Sugar Land TX.
How Does It Work?
Bursts of laser energy are sent through the skin, targeting the hair follicles. The heat damages the follicle, making it harder to produce new hairs, and may destroy it altogether. The skin is left undamaged, and you may enjoy a hair-free experience for years to come. This is a permanent means to achieve hair growth reduction.
What Happens During A Session?
Laser hair removal is performed in the Acclaim office. Anesthesia is usually not needed, may be used, and a cooling gel is often applied to the treatment area. You will experience a mild discomfort during the procedure, often described as being similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure will take anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes.
What Happens After A Session?
You may experience some redness and mild stinging, similar to a mild sunburn, but this will go away quickly. The redness can be covered with makeup to hide it. There is no downtime associated with this procedure, and you can immediately return to your regular daily activities. Your doctor will determine how many treatments are needed. Most patients need around 6 treatments for optimal results.
Who Is Eligible For Laser Hair Removal?
Because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicles, this treatment is best suited to those with fair skin and dark hairs. The laser can cause unwanted side effects in darker skin, such as hyperpigmentation.
