Laser hair removal in Newport Beach is for those who are looking for a permanent solution to their ‘hairy horrors’! Unwanted body hair is the bane of countless number of people and for long they had to make do with shaving or waxing or tweezing, all of which were not permanent solutions and new hair sprouted soon enough for the entire process to be repeated again. Electrolysis came on the scene and although it was perceived to be very effective, it involved the removal of each strand of hair one by one making it very time consuming and painful. With laser therapy, the process is much faster, easier and permanent. The system uses laser to beam an intense ray of light on the unwanted hair follicles and it can target even the most sensitive areas of the body painlessly and effectively.
The hair colour and skin colour plays an important role in the efficacy of the laser hair removal treatment. Light-skinned people but with dark hair have very successful results although dark-skinned people also respond well to the treatment. Before starting the treatment it is essential that you make your cosmetologist aware of medical factors, if any and whether you are on any medications. If you are tanned from sun exposure, it is advisable to wait till the tan fades completely before starting the laser hair removal treatment. Over exposure to the sun should, in any case be avoided 4-6 weeks before the planned treatment.
Laser hair removal Newport Beach has the advantage of being carried out on large areas of the body as it can target numerous hair follicles at the same time. Large areas of the body like the chest, back and legs can be treated in one session. Even if there is re-growth, the hair texture is light and very fine and virtually invisible. It is definitely a painless method compared to waxing or electrolysis.
Side effects from this method are very rare; however, it is better to acquaint yourself with the possible side effects before you embark on laser hair removal. Your cosmetologist should have a detailed discussion with you before the procedure so that you can take an informed decision. Some common side occurrences although rare include hyper pigmentation of the skin wherein the skin becomes slightly darker than normal. This however does not last long and disappears in sometime. Scarring, scabbing or blistering of the skin may happen in some cases but, again, these are nothing to worry about as these heal after a period of time. Sometimes, very fine and light hair may start growing from adjacent areas where laser had been done but this too can be treated. The only precaution which needs to be preferably taken after laser hair removal is avoidance of sun exposure especially for those who regularly use tanning beds.
