Springtime is just around the corner and it won’t be long before we can put away the winter coats and boots and bring out the shorts and sandals…and the hair removal tools and products. Yes! It is also time to get back into the weekly, maybe daily, routine of waxing, shaving and tweezing unwanted hair. The professionals at the Zeeba Clinic would like to suggest a more convenient and time-saving option, laser hair reduction.
WHAT IS LASER HAIR REDUCTION?
Laser hair reduction is an easy, safe, and time-saving option to manage unwanted hair on legs, underarms, face, and other areas. For men, laser hair treatments are also used for hair on the back and chest. At the Zeeba Clinic, trained professionals use a broad-band light (BBL) laser made by Sciton, which is specifically designed for permanent hair reduction. The laser penetrates to the root of the hair without damaging the follicle, which prevents damaging the skin.
HOW DOES IT FEEL?
It is not painful but can feel like a little “snap”. Temporary redness and minor swelling can result from this procedure and should last no more than 24 hours. The treatment only takes about 20 minutes to complete.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
Laser hair treatment inhibits regrowth of the hair follicle, and with repeated treatments, can permanently reduce hair growth by 80%. This means a lot less time spent shaving and tweezing!
ARE THERE ANY PRECAUTIONS OR SIDE EFFECTS?
You should not pluck or shave any hair prior to the treatment, this can diminish the overall results. There are no special post-treatment instructions other than to avoid exercise for 24 hours
Laser hair removal is not appropriate for all skin types, so it is important to contact a trained professional like Dr. Bahman Guyuron at Zeeba Clinic.
There are other options offered at the Zeeba Clinic like waxing, tweezing, and dermablading to remove unwanted facial and body hair, as well as a full line of skin care products.
