There are many ways to remove unwanted hair from the body, but no method is as easy and efficient as laser hair removal. If you are looking to say goodbye to razor bumps and waxing appointments, Derm.ca Dermatology & Esthetics in Calgary, AB offers laser hair removal services to help you get rid of intrusive, excess hair.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that uses a laser to remove hair from unwanted places on the body long-term. It is commonly used on locations such as the upper lip, underarms, and legs, where hair may not be desired.
Am I A Good Candidate For Treatment?
If you have hair that grows in undesirable places and wish to have it removed, you are an ideal candidate for treatment. This is a safe treatment that works on all skin types and is accessible to most people.
How Does It Work?
The process works by targeting your hair follicles, heating them to the point where they become damaged. Once damaged, the follicles are less likely to regrow hair. The whole process is fairly quick depending on the treatment area and is usually able to be worked into even the busiest schedules.
There are many benefits to laser hair which make it superior to traditional methods of hair removal. Here are just a few of them:
The treatment is easy on your skin as compared to shaving or waxing, where skin irritation and nicking happen often. In addition, there are lasers that can accommodate all different skin types and reduce any possible negative side effects.
- Long Lasting Results
After your laser hair removal treatments have been completed, you will rarely have to worry about removing hair from the treated areas ever again. Any upkeep in those areas will be minimal, allowing you to live your life without constantly worrying about unwanted hair.
The lasers which are used in the process are very precise and able to pinpoint problem areas without disturbing or harming nearby skin. They can also reach even the most difficult to reach places on the body, leaving no spot untouched.
Each laser session is very quick, and it only takes a few sessions to complete the entire treatment.
