There are many reasons why people consider trying non-invasive laser hair removal treatments in Dallas. These treatments promise semi-permanent hair reduction. In some cases, individuals enjoy the benefit of permanent hair removal. Here are some things that you should consider when determining if this is the right option for you.
Enjoy Satisfying and Long-Term Results
If you have sensitive skin, you are likely stuck in an uncomfortable cycle that involves shaving away unwanted hair, dealing with irritated skin, having an awkward phase when the hair is growing out and the skin irritation is settling down, and then starting it over again. Part of the irritation that you may experience is ingrown hairs. You very likely never enjoy a time when your skin is completely free of unwanted hair and irritation.
When you choose to go with a more permanent form of hair removal, you will escape that vicious cycle. In fact, you may be able to completely throw your razors away. If you regularly wax away unwanted hair, you likely enjoy how your skin looks in the first week or two after you receive the treatment. However, you have to go through that long phase of dealing with unwanted hair in order to return for another waxing session. Laser hair removal can help you to do away with all that frustration.
Even for individuals who don’t have sensitive skin and who get decent results from shaving or waxing, it is something that they have to do on a regular basis. In fact, some individuals may shave in the morning and then see hair growth again by the evening. This is a time waster. When you use non-invasive laser hair removal in Dallas, you will be able to free up a lot of your time. Just think about how much time you will be able to dedicate to other parts of your morning routine when shaving is no longer longer one of the items on your checklist.
How Does the Treatment Work?
There are a lot of misconceptions out there about how lasers are used to remove unwanted hair. We would like to clear some of those misconceptions up and give you more information on how the treatment works in order for you to make a balanced decision when it comes to determining if it is right for you.
One of the first misconceptions that people have is that the lasers are used to burn the hair. What actually disables the hair follicles and prevents them from growing is the fact that the energy is absorbed by the hair follicle. If the hair follicle is going through an active growth stage, it will be damaged by the energy. This will prevent it from growing.
Understanding how the treatment works allows us to clear up several other misconceptions that people have. Another one is that you cannot shave before or in between sessions. The truth is that you cannot pluck the hair. The idea is to be able to treat the hair follicle with the laser. We actually encourage our clients to shave before their treatment. However, they should not wax or pluck the hair out because this would basically make the non-invasive laser hair removal treatment ineffective.
The energy from the laser is attracted to the dark pigmentation in the hair follicle. This means that individuals who have light skin and dark hair get the best results with a basic treatment. Some have the misconception that individuals with other hair and skin combinations are not good candidates for the treatment. The techniques that are used with these treatments have advanced a lot in recent years. While individuals with dark hair and light skin do get the best results with basic treatments, we can now use other lasers and techniques in order to help individuals with most other hair colors and skin colors. The one exception is treating individuals who have white or gray hair.
What Should You Expect?
The first time you visit our Dallas office, you are going to go through a consultation with one of our technicians. The goal is to inform you about how the treatment is performed, tell you about the results that you should expect, and answer any questions that you have. Once you are armed with all of this information, you will be able to decide if laser hair removal is the right option for you.
If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, it will likely be performed as soon as the consultation is over. Treatment sessions are quite short. The length of the session will depend on the area that you are having treated and how many areas need to be treated during one visit. If you are having a simple treatment in order to just get rid of the hair above your upper lip, the session will likely last just a few minutes. However, if you are going to treat the hair on your legs, underarms, and bikini area, you may be in our office for an hour or more.
It is good to mention that you will need to avoid exposure to the sun in the weeks before and after your treatment. Even individuals who have a fake tan do not make good candidates for laser hair removal. In some cases, you will need to spend several weeks before your treatment preparing for it by making sure that your skin is not exposed to the sun.
Most of our clients need to visit us for several treatment sessions in order to get the best results. You may see long-term results with as few as six sessions, or you may need 8 to 10 in order to throw out your shaving and waxing kits for good.
