Struggling with keeping skin smooth and hair free is an ongoing battle that never ends. However, thanks to professional laser hair removal services here at Deja You Medical, we can help simplify hair removal. Our permanent hair removal services use the latest in technology to help eliminate hairs at their source. Allowing you to enjoy smooth, stubble-free skin without the need to constantly shave.
Why Choose Laser Hair Removal?
Choosing laser hair removal is a personal choice that anyone can make. Whether you’re tired of shaving or sensitive to lotions, creams, and shaving products, laser hair removal is an alternate solution for permanent hair removal.
With our laser hair removal treatments, you’ll be able to enjoy smooth skin without the need to worry about shaving over and over. While multiple treatments may be required to see your desired results, the process is safe, relatively painless, and effective when it comes to ridding yourself of unwanted hair.
How It Works
We use laser hair removal to permanently remove hair from almost anywhere throughout the body. These lasers emit a light that gets absorbed by the pigment within the hairs. This light energy is then converted into heat which damages the hair follicles and inhibits or delays hair from growing.
These treatments like any treatment option bring a variety of pros and cons. Understanding the process and the benefits of laser hair removal can help you make the best decision when it comes to treatment options that are right for you.
Below we’ve listed out some of the pros and cons when it comes to laser hair removal treatments.
When considering laser hair removal as your treatment option of choice when it comes to ridding yourself of unwanted hair, many patients find that the pros greatly outweigh the cons. Here are some of the pros when it comes to professionally applied laser hair removal treatments.
- Quick sessions
- Precise treatments
- Can be used to remove hair throughout the body
- Avoids ingrown hairs
- Less painful than other hair removal treatments
- Little to no side effects if done professionally
- A great option for those with sensitive skin
While the pros greatly outweigh the cons in most situations, it’s always good to be aware of what may occur if your treatment doesn’t go as well as it should. Keep in mind, however, that the majority of cons listed below are results that are much more likely to occur if your technician is not properly trained, experienced, and knowledgeable when it comes to the treatment.
- May require yearly treatments for the best results
- Low risk of burning, redness, blisters, or discoloration on the skin
- Risks are greatly increased with untrained or inexperienced technicians
Professional Hair Removal Service
If you’re considering professional laser hair removal treatment, it’s important to understand how the process works. We’re here to help you through all the stages of treatment starting with an initial consultation to determine whether or not laser hair removal is the best choice for you.
At your initial consultation, you’ll have the chance to discuss any concerns that you may have regarding the process with your provider. This is where you will discuss your desired results, go over the treatment areas and options, as well as discuss any previous medical history including past treatments.
In preparation for your treatment, it’s important to avoid things such as waxing and plucking for 4 to 6 weeks before treatment. Since laser hair removal targets the hair follicles, shaving is recommended within 24 hours of your treatment so that the lasers can more easily target these hair follicles without overgrown hair on the outside.
During your treatment, a topical anesthetic may be offered to help reduce any discomfort during the treatment. This is especially true if the areas being treated are more sensitive such as the underarms or bikini line areas.
During your treatment, slight discomfort may be felt that has been described as a warm pinprick sensation. Most treatments last from a few minutes up to an hour depending on the areas to be treated.
After your treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn. This is normal and can be treated with a cool compress or moisturizer that your provider approves of. The minimal downtime post-treatment allows you to get back to your normal routine almost immediately as long as you follow some simple aftercare instructions such as the ones outlined below.
- Apply a cool compress to the treated area
- Use medications and prescription creams as directed
- Avoid excess sun exposure and tanning beds
- Avoid excess heat such as hot tubs, heat packs, or saunas for 48 hours
- Do not pluck, tweeze, wax, or forcefully remove hairs
- Avoid makeup, deodorant, or other topical creams for the first 24 hours
Be sure to follow your aftercare instructions for the best results. Not everyone is the same, and some experience the recovery process differently. So be sure to talk with your provider if you have any concerns or serious side effects after your treatment.
