Laser hair removal is an aesthetic service to get rid of the body hair that you don’t want. Whether you feel that yours is too dense, too dark, or too uncomfortable, laser hair removal can permanently reduce your body hair growth and help you avoid constant upkeep with shaving or waxing.
At Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness, Dr. Lo uses a high-end laser device to target each of the areas of body hair that you specify during your consultation. The light penetrates your skin and goes into the hair follicles, where it’s converted to heat. The heat damages those follicles so they can’t support hair growth for some time.
Your hair color, type, and density can influence the results of your treatment. After examining you during a consultation, Dr. Lo tells you how many initial treatments you’ll need to get the results you want to see.
Laser hair removal works on any part of the body that you routinely shave, wax, or tweeze. At Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness, Dr. Lo routinely removes hair from these areas that tend to grow body hair:
The only area that might not be the best option for laser hair removal is the area around your eyes. While it’s effective at damaging targeted follicles, the heat from the laser device can also damage your eyes. Therefore, it’s riskier to treat areas of the upper face because of their proximity to your eyes.
Laser hair removal produces semi-permanent results, but it’s unlikely to stop the growth cycle of your follicles forever. Instead, your initial set of treatment delays hair growth for some time. The exact amount of time is difficult to predict, but you can schedule a follow-up treatment session as soon as you see hair growth start to return.
The hair that does grow back after your first few laser hair removal sessions tends to be finer, lighter, and more manageable than before. You only need maintenance treatments every once in a while to target and remove this hair. It can take months or even years to see any regrowth after your initial few laser hair removal sessions.
