Get Silky Smooth Skin This Summer With Laser Hair Removal

Are you tired of shaving, waxing, and plucking? If you’ve had enough of the hassle of manually removing hair, laser hair removal is for you.

Karol Gutowski, MD, FACS, and his team of expert estheticians at Lincoln Park Aesthetics can treat your back, bikini area, chest, face, neck, shoulders, legs, and more with laser hair removal to give you long-lasting silky smooth skin.

How laser hair removal works

During laser hair removal, a licensed esthetician, nurse, or doctor uses a laser system that emits light onto the treatment area. The light converts to heat, which damages your targeted hair follicles. Damage to a hair follicle prevents or delays future hair growth from that follicle.

Because lasers target the pigment of your hair, hair color and skin types can influence the effectiveness of laser hair removal. Men and women with more contrast between their hair and skin, such as dark hair and light skin, usually see the best results.

To be effective and result in long-lasting or permanent hair loss, laser hair removal usually requires 3-6 treatments. The length of time between treatments will vary depending on the treatment location.

For example, if you’re getting your upper lip treated, you can come back every couple of weeks until you see the desired result. If you’re getting your lower back treated, you may only need to come back every few months, because hair grows more slowly there.  

Benefits of laser hair removal

It’s not surprising that laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States. The benefits are many, including:

It’s long-lasting

After shaving, waxing or plucking, hair can grow back in a matter of days or weeks. After laser hair removal, hair won’t grow back for several months or even years. And, if or when it does grow back, it’s usually finer and lighter in color than it was before the removal. Some men and women experience permanent hair removal.

It’s precise

The light beams target just your unwanted hair without damaging any skin.

It’s fast

Small areas, such as your upper lip, can be treated in just one minute, while larger areas can be treated in an hour or less.

It’s predictable

Though the results may vary slightly from person to person, most men and women will get rid of the hair they don’t want in 3-6 sessions.
