Whether you’re trying to look good for a vacation, a big event, or just daily life, waxing and shaving can be such a hassle. No matter how well you wax or shave, the hair keeps coming back with a vengeance. And, after a while, you may grow tired of this never-ending cycle. Fortunately, there is a convenient and effective alternative you can try, if you’d like to put your days of waxing and shaving behind you.
Laser Hair Removal
One of the easiest and most trusted options on the market for getting rid of unwanted hair is laser hair removal. In this process, lasers emit energy that is absorbed by the hair follicle, killing it so that it has a low chance of growing again.
Led by Dr. Nia Banks, our team proudly uses the Elite MPX technology. This system combines both the 755 nm Alexandrite laser and 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser into one highly effective system. While the 755 nm Alexandrite laser is best for those with lighter skin types, the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser is best for those with a darker complexion. This means that we have the ability to determine which laser to use, based on your unique skin tone, offering the highest level of results.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Many people wonder whether laser hair removal will be more painful than waxing or shaving. Although the procedure can cause minimal discomfort, most patients report that it feels like a rubber band snapping momentarily against the skin. Any localized redness or swelling will resolve within the first day after your appointment.
Are the Results Immediate?
Because each patient is different, the number of treatments needed will vary. However, in most cases, you can expect to need four to six treatments to see your desired results.
