What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the process of using a specially targeted, concentrated laser to get rid of the hair follicles and lessen or even prevent the regrowth of hair. Dr. Aycock is a certified international trainer and speaker on the use of state-of-the-art Light and Laser Systems.
For women, target treatment areas include the bikini line, legs, face, and arms. Men tend to have laser hair removal done on their back, shoulders, or chest. The laser used in hair removal is gentle enough for nearly any kind of skin surface.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
In addition to improving the tone and texture of skin, people who have had laser hair removal report the following benefits:
- Smoother, softer skin – no more nicks and cuts from razor blades.
- A more positive body image.
- The self-confidence to wear tank tops, sleeves, and shorts in public without worrying about unwanted hair
Preparing for Laser Hair Removal
With any type of laser treatment, you may be asked to undergo a specific skin care regimen to better prepare your skin. Full details will be provided to you at your free consultation.
How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
Laser hair removal is quick and easy – and you can even have a treatment done on your lunch hour! The treatment itself may feel like a rubber band being snapped against your skin. If this is uncomfortable to you, Dr. Aycock can provide a topical numbing cream to help desensitize the area being treated. As an example, the underarm area can generally be treated in around 20 minutes or so.
Laser Hair Removal Recovery
There’s no downtime and minimal discomfort associated with laser hair removal recovery.
