If you’re like most men and women, you just can’t be bothered to shave all the time. Not only does it take up a chunk of your morning or nightly routine, but all the equipment involved isn’t cheap. Laser hair removal is a permanent hair reduction solution that allows you to ditch the razor for naturally smooth skin. We wanted to go over the best areas to get laser hair removal and what you can expect with each.
On What Areas Can I Get Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a popular laser treatment for certain areas of the body, like the underarms and bikini line. But, you can really get laser hair removal on most areas of the body. The most common areas we see patients get laser hair removal include:
· Arms and Underarms
Many women are unhappy with the amount of hair that grows on and under their arms. While some commit to regularly shaving the hair off with a razor, we encourage our patients to consider laser hair removal a more permanent option for smooth, soft arms and underarms.
While the legs are a large area to get laser hair removal, the process isn’t done all in one go. The legs are divided into different sections, and each laser hair removal treatment session is dedicated to specific sections as laid out in a personalized treatment plan.
· Bikini Lines and Intimate Areas
Laser hair removal for the bikini line is popular with our female patients. What many people don’t know, however, is that laser hair removal can also be done in the style of a Brazilian wax. This ensures the landscape around the entirety of your flower doesn’t overgrow.
· Upper Lip
While shaving, waxing and using a hair removal cream on the upper lip can work temporarily, consider getting laser hair removal to permanently remove your unwanted facial hair. This small area is cost-effective and ideal for patients who have a stark contrast between skin tone and hair color.
· Back and Chest
Men – laser hair removal isn’t just for the ladies! Permanent hair reduction with laser hair removal is a great option for men who are insecure about the amount of hair covering their chest and back. Just like with the legs, the chest and back will be divided into sections that will be treated with multiple sessions over a period of time.
What Can I Expect During Laser Hair Removal?
Before you begin your laser hair removal treatments, we will apply a topical anesthetic. This ensures you’ll be as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, a handheld laser device will be placed over your treatment area, and small zaps of laser energy will target and destroy individual hair follicles. Many patients compare this sensation to the feeling of a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Each treatment session takes under an hour to complete, making them convenient to schedule between running errands or during your lunch break.
