Is Laser Hair Removal Right for You?

Unwanted hair can be a cause of anxiety and frustration for both men and women.  If you feel like you have to shave more than normal, or if frequent shaving is irritating your skin and causing ingrown hairs, you should consider laser hair removal. 

In today’s blog,  Emerge Tulsa explains laser hair removal and who might benefit from it.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

This type of treatment stops hair growth using a laser. The laser focuses a light directly at the hair follicles where it is absorbed and stops the hair from growing. It targets hair at the roots and the goal is to permanently remove the hair. 

The laser is precise and usually does not affect the skin around the hair. You may want to avoid plucking hair for several weeks before the treatment, however. Plucking removes the follicle and that is what the laser will target.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Your first session is not permanent, but may stunt hair growth for a period of time. If you are looking to permanently remove hair, you will need several laser treatments so this can be achieved.

Where On My Body Can I Remove Hair?

The good thing about this method of hair removal is that it can be used just about anywhere on the body. A popular place to have it done on women is on the upper lip, or in the bikini area. The treatment can be adjusted to type and thickness of hair, so even thick hair can be tackled.

The skin may be slightly red, as if sunburned, for a day or two following the procedure, but serious reactions like blisters are rare.

How Safe is Laser Hair Removal? 

This method of hair removal is very safe and is one of the most popular minor medical procedures to have done. However, as it is considered a medical procedure it needs to be done by experienced professionals at a reputable business, like Emerge Tulsa.

There are few risks with the procedure when done correctly. Emerge uses the Candela laser technology known as the GentleLASE laser process, which is quick and effective for both men and women.
