The Many Advantages of Laser Hair Removal

If you are tired of shaving on a regular basis in order to get rid of unwanted hair, you might want to look into the many advantages of laser hair removal. Even things like waxing or pulling the hair out with tweezers are not permanent solutions. Laser hair removal treatment can be. You can say goodbye to your razor after completing your treatment program at our office.

Laser hair removal has increased in popularity over the past several years to the point that it is now among the most widely used of all the available cosmetic procedures. It is done when highly concentrated beams of light are emitted from a unit that is passed across the surface of the skin. The laser energy is directed at the hair follicles. As it is absorbed by the pigment, the hair is safely destroyed.

Laser hair removal can be used to remove unwanted hair from the face, legs, underarms or just about any other place on the body. The length of time each treatment takes depends on the size of the area being treated, among other factors.

Each laser pulse that is emitted by the equipment only lasts a fraction of a second. Since sections of the skin that are about the size of a quarter can be treated at once, a number of hair follicles are targeted with each pulse. The wand is then moved across the surface of the skin until the entire area has been treated.

A series of treatment sessions is usually required to obtain the best results. Our provider can evaluate your skin type and hair condition and give you more precise information regarding the kinds of results you can expect with laser hair removal. You should be able to return to your normal routine right away after your treatment. As such, this is a convenient treatment option for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.

Make an appointment at Lincoln Park Aesthetics to see if laser hair removal can work for you. Our office is conveniently located in Chicago, IL. Contact us today to schedule a consultation for laser hair removal!
