Say good-bye to unwanted body hair without nicks, cuts, razor burn, ingrown hairs, itchiness, etc. Rejuvenate Spa NY in the Bronx offers laser hair removal for men and women so that you always look sleek and feel sexy.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Most hair removal methods either trim the hair at the skin line or simply induce the hair to fall out of the follicle…but the hair always comes back. Laser hair removal stops hair growth by deadening the follicle so that hairs are no longer produced. That leaves you with silky, smooth skin without stubble and all the unsightly effects of dull razors for up to six weeks.
Laser hair removal results vary depending on a number of factors, including:
- Skin type and tone
- Overall skin health
Your licensed esthetician can help you understand what results you can expect from laser hair removal treatments based on your unique composition and complexion. We will also help you determine an ideal treatment schedule based on your hair growth patterns in the treatment area.
Laser Hair Removal Anywhere
Laser hair removal can be used to treat unwanted hair anywhere. That means:
Gentlemen can permanently sculpt or eliminate:
- Facial hair (including unsightly ear hair)
- Neck—front and back
- Arms and hands
- Legs and feet
Ladies can permanently shape:
- Bikini lines
Plus, anyone can live worry-free about undesired facial and body hair and always have the just-shaved feeling without razors.
What To Expect During Laser Hair Removal Treatment
During laser hair removal treatment sessions, your esthetician may numb the treatment area and/or apply a cooling gel to protect your skin. A handheld device is used to send targeted laser pulses below your skin to heat and destroy the hair follicle. The length of each session depends on the size of the area being treated.
Immediately after treatment, you may notice some redness and swelling. These side effects subside within a matter of hours. In the days following the treatment, you may notice what looks like hair regrowth but is really shedding.
Laser Hair Removal Preparations And Contraindications
For best results from your laser hair removal treatment, you should:
- Stop tanning (in the sun or in a bed) and/or use of sunless tanning products one month prior to your session
- Stop waxing, tweezing and/or electrolysis treatments at least one month prior to your session
You may shave in the month prior to laser hair removal treatment. However, your esthetician may provide instructions on when to stop shaving and/or other skin preparations.
