Are you frustrated with the cycle of hair removal? Do you get sick of constantly waxing, shaving, and using hair removal creams? If so, laser hair removal is a treatment option you should consider. With enough treatments, you can be rid of unwanted hair once and for all. Here at Reno Sparks MedSpa in Reno, NV, we can help you finally get rid of any unwanted hair without any downtime!
How Permanent Is Laser Hair Removal?
This is going to depend on how many treatment sessions you have. With the correct amount of treatment sessions, you can be free of unwanted hair for good! However, the number of sessions you will need is going to depend on a number of factors like hair color and thickness. While one person can see their hair not returning after 5-8 treatments, others may need up to 10 before the hair stops returning for good.
In short, laser hair removal can be permanent but it is likely going to take more than 1 session to get there. During your initial consultation, our professionals may be able to give you a better estimate of how many sessions you will need before any unwanted hair stops coming back for good.
The Great Benefits of Treatment
There are a lot of benefits when it comes to this treatment option that you may have not even considered.
No More Irritation or Razor Burn
Most forms of hair removal can result in irritation, especially razor burn that can not only not look great but can also be painful. With this treatment option, you will never again have to contend with painful irritation or razor burn.
Most people find that after this treatment, the skin in the areas they have had hair removed is smoother. This is likely due to the skin not experiencing the irritation and dehydrating aspects of other forms of hair removal. Many people are thrilled with their much smoother skin following their treatment.
Save Money & Time
You may not realize how much time and money you have invested into the continual cycle of hair removal. All those waxing sessions, razors, and hair removal creams can add up in both cost and time. With this treatment, you can reclaim all that time and save money in the long run without having to worry about hair removal.
Always Ready for Activities
After this treatment, you will never have to worry about finding the time to deal with hair removal before an activity like a trip to the beach. Your skin will be smooth and ready to go!
How It Works
This treatment works by using a laser that is so precise and concentrated that it only focuses on the hair follicle itself while completely ignoring the surrounding skin. The laser is applied to the area in which you want to hair removed and it essentially heats up the hair follicle. That is going to remove any pigment from the hair follicle which kills it.
Once the hair follicle is dead, the cycle of hair regrowth will cease and you will be left with smooth skin. The process is going to take a different number of sessions to completely stop hair regrowth but even those with thicker, darker hair can benefit from treatment.
There are a number of areas that can benefit from this treatment. If you do happen to have an area of concern that is not mentioned, bring that area up to our professionals so they can let you know if that area or areas can also benefit from treatment.
Having unwanted hair removed from the legs using this method is very popular because the legs tend to be a larger surface area and therefore more difficult to deal with using other means of hair removal. This treatment can effectively remove unwanted hair from the legs, leaving you with smooth skin that lasts.
The Bikini Region
This is one of those regions that tend to be more prone to razor burn and irritation. With this treatment option, you can be rid of unwanted hair on the bikini region and always be ready for bathing suit weather!
The Upper Lip
If you have excess hair on your upper lip, you are already well aware of how frustrating it can be to deal with. The hair always seems to come right back but this treatment can get rid of that unwanted upper lip hair for good!
Under the Arms
Under the arms can also be prone to irritation when shaving or waxing. This treatment can get rid of any unwanted hair under the arms and leave you with smooth skin.
There are a number of people who struggle with unwanted hair on their back. The constant cycle of hair removal can be particularly annoying in this area because getting to it can be a struggle. This treatment can get rid of that unwanted hair so you never again have to worry about how to reach it.
Lots of hair on the arms is another problem that many people have. Thicker, darker hair on the arms can be a nuisance but this treatment can take care of it and help you regain your confidence.
