Everything Men Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal
Now that the month of September is officially coming to an end, that means that it is time to start packing away our warm weather wardrobe and break out the sweaters and jackets for Fall. And while it can be depressing for many of us to pack up our short shorts and tank tops up in the attic for another year, that doesn’t mean that you have to let go of every aspect of summer.
One of the favorite parts of the summer season for many people is the chance to show off their tan, smooth skin at the beach or lounging by the pool. After all, when you’ve been soaking up the sun and have fresh, glowing skin, why not show it off? However, as soon as summer is over, many people ditch their beauty routines and curse the thought of shaving every other day to maintain their smooth look.
The common dislike of shaving does not come without good reason. Between the hours of waxing, plucking, tweezing and shaving, it can seem as if most of our beauty routine is strictly devoted to ridding ourselves of hair. However, how else are you supposed to achieve smooth, fresh-looking skin?
There are several aesthetic laser hair removal treatments that are gaining popularity in the world of skin maintenance, and can help you achieve long-lasting, effective hair loss for weeks, and sometimes months, at a time. Here are just a few things to know about laser hair treatments and how they work to smooth your skin:
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
While there are many different methods of laser hair removal, most aesthetic laser treatments essentially work the same way. These procedures utilize a laser (an intense, pulsing beam of light) which passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which prevents future hair growth, all while leaving the surface and tissues of your skin unharmed.
While laser hair removal treatments do not guarantee to remove hair permanently, they can help to effectively slow the growth of hair on various parts of your body, including your legs, lips, facial hair, armpits, etc. Also, when the hair does grow back, it will be both lighter in color and smoother to the touch than before the procedure.
What Laser Hair Treatments Are Available?
Here at Beverly Hills Aesthetics, we offer two of the most beneficial, effective hair-loss procedures available―Lightsheer ET Laser Hair Removal and IPL and Yag Laser. Both of these treatment options help to destroy hair follicles at their root using filtered, powerful beams, resulting in significant hair loss in patients. Both of these procedures also offer minimal down time and little to no side effects.
