Laser hair removal in Springfield can accomplish the permanent reduction of unwanted body hair. It may provide smooth, hairless skin for months. Our trained hair removal professional uses the laser to target the pigment in your hair follicles, effectively destroying the follicle. The laser light is absorbed by the melanin in the follicle as heat damaging it so it can either no longer grow hair or delays the growth of new hair. Here at Bentley Skincare & Wellness, we are excited to offer this revolutionary unwanted hair removal treatment to our patients and encourage you to learn all about it.
Hair Grows in Stages
Laser hair removal is only effective during the growth stage of hair. This is because the pigment is fully formed. This is the main reason it may take multiple treatments to achieve the smooth skin you desire. The laser is very precise and will only remove unwanted hair the specifically targeted hairs. It can be calibrated to remove several hairs at one time or just one hair. Hair grows faster in some parts of the body than others. For example, the hair on the upper lip may grow faster and the hair on the back much slower. The area you are having treated will determine the length of the sessions as well as the time between sessions.
After the Procedure
After the procedure, it may take a few weeks for the hair to begin falling out. Once you have achieved the smooth skin you want, it may last for months and in some cases a year. When a few hairs start to grow back, they may be thin and weak. You can have a touch-up procedure any time you want, unlike with waxing where you have to wait for all the hair to regrow.
