Self-consciousness due to unwanted hair can prevent you from living your life as freely as possible. At Sculpt AZ Medical Aesthetics we strive to offer the best Laser Hair Removal Phoenix has to offer. Laser Hair Removal permanently eliminates unwanted hair, so you can say goodbye to tedious methods like shaving, tweezing, or waxing and be ever-ready for any adventure that comes your way.
Laser Hair Removal delivers highly concentrated light to hair follicles, where it converts into heat. This heat damages the hair follicles to prevent future hair growth, leaving you with permanently smoother skin.
Treatments are fast and generally well-tolerated. While a single treatment is not likely to produce permanent hair loss throughout the target area, a course of Laser Hair Removal treatments can provide permanent results and is ultimately a much more time-effective hair removal method than others that require constant maintenance.
While the primary benefit of Laser Hair Removal is smooth, hair-free skin, this non-invasive treatment also helps prevent ingrown hairs and reduce skin irritation.
Laser Hair Removal targets hair follicles without damaging surrounding tissues and is safe for all skin tones. Treatments are fast and, in most cases, short enough to fit into your lunch break. Laser hair Removal also requires no downtime so that you can return to your routine immediately after your treatment.
You may be a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal if you would like a long-term solution to unwanted hair on your face, legs, bikini area, arms, chest, back, or armpits, and have realistic expectations for your treatment. While treatment is safe for all skin tones, the best candidates for Laser Hair Removal have light skin and dark hair as the treatment targets melanin or the pigment within your hair. Therefore, the darker your hair, the more effective your treatment will be. You must also be prepared to follow detailed instructions for caring for your skin before and after your treatment to achieve the best results.
While treatment is straightforward, Laser Hair Removal does require some preparation. For six weeks before your procedure, you should avoid sun exposure as well as waxing, plucking, or electrolysis in the target area. These hair removal techniques remove the root of the hair, making it impossible to treat. You should also avoid tanning products for at least three weeks before treatment. On the day of your Laser Hair Removal treatment, your skin should be clear of makeup or other products. Our skilled aesthetic team at Sculpt AZ Medical Aesthetics will ensure that your skin is clean and trim your hair, so it is just long enough to receive laser treatment. Then, they will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin that will be allowed to sit for 20 to 30 minutes before treatment begins.
Your aesthetic specialist will adjust the laser device to suit your hair’s color and thickness. You may need to wear eye protection. Before treatment fully gets underway, a “test pulse” will ensure that the settings are correct and that no adverse reactions occur. As soon as the settings are confirmed, treatment will begin. You will feel a “zap” as the laser reaches each hair follicle. However, a cooling gel or cold air will help to minimize discomfort and protect your skin. The length of your session will depend on the size of the treatment area, though most of our Phoenix Laser Hair Removal treatments typically takes less than an hour.
You may experience redness or swelling for several hours after your Laser Hair Removal treatment, but you can apply an ice pack to reduce any discomfort. You should avoid tanning beds and sun exposure for six weeks and use broad-spectrum sunscreen each day.
Treated hair will fall out over the days and weeks following treatment. Because Laser Hair Removal works on hairs in the growth stage, repeated treatments are necessary to achieve long-term results.
Most Laser Hair Removal patients undergo three to seven treatments. Sessions are spaced depending on the location of treatment. Areas in which the hair grows faster may be treated every four to eight weeks, while other areas may require treatments spaced 12 to 16 weeks apart. You may also need touch-up treatments.
