A lot of people are wanting to know what’s all the buzz about laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is the #1 non-invasive aesthetics treatment available today with an estimated growth rate of 18%. This procedure can replace other methods of removing hair, leaving long-lasting results that are less time consuming than shaving and less painful than waxing. If you’re considering laser hair removal as an option, here are some things to keep in mind.
The idea of a laser beam may seem intimidating, but the reality is that laser hair removal is a highly advanced and safe way to reduce hair growth. There will be a low-energy laser beam that passes through the skin. The beam will be attracted to the pigment of hair follicles, which is why the procedure is not as effective with red, gray and white hair. The energy from the beam will pass down the hair shaft until it’s absorbed by growing hair follicles, disabling the follicles in the deeper layers of the skin.
Patients who elect to go through this procedure should only experience temporary pain – like a hot snap, at most. But at Dr. Bishara’s office, we use Alma Lasers which provides virtually painless hair removal technology. The procedure can be used by almost anyone who has hair growing in places they’d prefer were bare. It’s not just for women – men who grow hair on their back, shoulders or other parts of the body may want to consider undergoing laser hair removal as well. Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. Laser hair removal reduces unwanted hair over a series of 6-9 treatments.
Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon Med Spa specializes in a wide range of treatments, as well as face and body plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Bishara’s main focus is to help patients restore or achieve their ideal appearance in order to feel confident about the way they look.
