Getting rid of unwanted body hair is a continuous task that takes a lot of time if you want to look your best. Shaving, plucking and waxing are the most common procedures for getting rid of body hair, but more and more people are turning to laser hair removal, and for good reason. Laser hair removal works by concentrating a laser light on the pigment in the follicle to remove the unwanted hairs. The light is absorbed by the pigment and is converted into heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce the hair.
It is Suitable for Almost Everyone
Since laser hair removal reduces unwanted body hair, multiple treatments are needed as well as follow-up maintenance treatments. The treatment can be done on almost any area of the body, including the armpits, legs, upper lip, chin, bikini line, back and chest. The only area that can’t be treated is the eyelid and the surrounding area. Small areas such as the chin, upper lip or underarms usually take just minutes to complete. Larger areas such as the legs or back may take a little bit longer. Recent advances in laser hair removal technology mean it is now an option for people with darker skin as well.
What to Expect
We have the experience and expertise to perform laser hair removal right here at Bentley Skincare & Wellness. It may take a series of treatment sessions to get the results you want depending on the type of hair and size of the area being treated, among other factors. This is because hair grows in stages, and the treatment only works during the growth stage.
When you visit our specialist at Bentley Skincare & Wellness, you will learn more about the procedure and if you are a good candidate. From there, you can find out what kind of results you can expect. Our office is conveniently located in Springfield, MO. Contact us today to set up a consultation for laser hair removal!
