Get smooth skin with laser treatment for hair removal in Walnut Creek
Everyone knows the basic at home methods for removing unwanted hair. You can shave, wax, and pluck to temporarily remove the hair, but it always comes back, and removal must be repeated a short time later. In addition to being repetitive and time consuming, these methods can also leave behind irritation and bumps. What if we told you that it is possible to do away with all the shaving, plucking, and waxing for good? By asking your Walnut Creek dermatologist about laser hair treatment, you are taking the first step toward permanently smooth skin.
Laser Hair Removal in Walnut Creek
In the past, professional hair removal methods were not as good as they are today. Electrolysis was an effective way to permanently reduce unwanted hair; however, the process was uncomfortable and lengthy. Laser technology has allowed us to remove hair much more efficiently.
How it works
Laser hair removal utilizes highly concentrated pulses of light targeted at the hair follicles in the active growth phase. When the follicles absorb the light, they are destroyed. Because hair grows in phases, several treatments are necessary to capture all follicles in their growth phase. Once the hair is permanently destroyed, patients can enjoy years of smooth, hair-free skin. If some hair does grow back, it is usually much less than was previously there and can be removed with touch-up appointments.
Benefits of laser hair removal
- Immediate results. Patients will notice hair reduction after just one session. Most people experience up to 90 percent reduction after five sessions.
- No more ingrown hairs. This is because follicles no longer contain hairs in active growth.
- Softer skin. No more prickly, emerging hair.
