Are you sick of constantly having to shave, tweeze, or wax in order to remove unwanted hair? If this describes you, laser hair removal may be exactly what you are looking for. The treatment is one of the most popular types of cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. It works through the selective targeting of highly-concentrated light energy that is transmitted into hair follicles. The pigment found in the hair follicles will absorb this light energy, destroying the hair.
Laser Hair Removal Benefits
Cosmetic lasers have been found to be helpful in the removal of unwanted hair from areas like the face, bikini line, underarms, legs, arms, and other areas of the body. One thing that our patients really appreciate is the incredible precision of the laser hair removal process. Our lasers are able to precisely target only the hairs and leave the surrounding skin intact.
Another positive aspect of laser hair removal is the ability of the laser to work very quickly. Each laser pulse takes only a tiny fraction of a second to treat many hairs simultaneously. We can use the laser to remove hair in an area about the size of a quarter every single second.
The Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Using the cosmetic laser system, we are able to destroy hair follicles within minutes. You should experience only minimal discomfort during this fast procedure, as our system comes with an advanced cooling system. We target hair follicles using laser energy that is absorbed by the pigment in your hair, similar to how sunlight affects darker clothes.
In the weeks following your laser hair removal procedure, the unwanted hair will start going away. The complete process will take a series of treatment sessions, but you may see results after your first session. After each successive treatment, you will see more and more hair fading from the treatment area.
Laser hair removal is a serious medical procedure that requires adequate training to carry out. Make sure you come to the experts at Madonna OBGYN and Medical Spa. We have offices located in Geneseo and Rochester. Contact us today to book an appointment and get started!
