Are you sick of wasting your time by plucking, waxing, or shaving to remove unwanted hair? Residents of Toronto are discovering how permanent hair removal can be achieved by undergoing convenient laser hair removal treatments. This treatment destroys hair follicles using a laser so that hair no longer grows in the treatment area.
How Can I Achieve Permanent Hair Removal?
A laser hair removal treatment is all that you need for the permanent removal of unwanted hair from places like your face, legs, arms, underarms, or bikini area. Think of how much time you will save by no longer needing to engage in these time wasting activities.
How Does the Treatment Work?
We use laser equipment to selectively destroy individual hair follicles. Since the hair follicle is what produces hair, destroying them prevents the growth of hair in the future and helps to achieve permanent hair removal with just a few treatment sessions.
The laser transmits focused wavelengths of light. By the time this light reaches targeted hair follicles, it has been converted into thermal energy that heats the hair follicle and destroys it as a way of preventing unwanted hair growth. The melanin, or part of your hair that gives it its color, absorbs the energy, which destroys the hair follicle.
Should I Take Any Precautions?
You will need to make sure that you do not undergo prolonged UV radiation exposure in the treatment area for one week before and after your procedure. Sunlight can interfere with the treatment process or your recovery.
After your procedure, do not undergo any other type of laser procedure in the area that was treated. You should also avoid chemical peels and the use of topical retinoids in this area until you have fully recovered from your procedure.
What Should I Expect at My Appointment?
After shaving down hair in the treatment area, your technician in Toronto will adjust the laser equipment according to your unique specifications. You may need to don protective eyewear at this point. Your technician will test the laser equipment. If the test is successful, laser energy will be transmitted into hair follicles in the treatment area to destroy them and prevent the growth of unwanted hair.
