Do you worry about painful waxing sessions and the inevitable stubble after shaving? If you want silky smooth legs and underarms without having to worry about your next wax appointment, laser hair removal will get rid of unwanted body hair. Call Rio Medical in Hudson, MA for all of your hair removal and aesthetic needs.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that quickly and safely removes unwanted body hair. The treatment is performed in quick sessions using a laser to target individual hair follicles. The laser damages the hair follicle while causing no damage to the surrounding skin, so hair will no longer grow from that follicle. The treatment does not leave stubble, and patients will see an 80% reduction in hair growth.
At Rio Medical, we use the Elite+ laser which has a larger effective area than the typical laser used in the treatment. This laser allows us to perform a more effective and faster treatment than with traditional lasers.
How Long Does It Take for Hair to Go Away After Treatment?
After your laser hair removal treatment, the treated hair should begin falling out after 10 to 14 days. The hair removal treatment is completed in sessions and can take between 15 and 60 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. For many parts of the body, hair removal can take between three and eight sessions depending on the thickness of the hairs.
Care should be taken before treatment to avoid UV damage to the skin that will be treated. After treatment, patients should keep strenuous activity to a minimum and avoid bathing in hot water. Wearing makeup or shaving is safe after treatment as long as the skin is not red and there are no signs of broken skin.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Laser hair removal is an excellent choice for anyone who is looking to go without shaving and waxing to remove body hair. Patients of all ages and genders remove unwanted hair with laser treatment. Hair removal is the number one laser treatment in the United States.
This treatment is safe and requires no healing or downtime. Most patients can get back to their daily routine or work immediately after treatment. Laser treatment is a convenient and comfortable way to remove hair so you can live life without having to think about it again.
What Are the Benefits?
Laser treatment can save you quite a bit of money over a lifetime: money you would otherwise spend buying waxes, razors, and shaving gels. You can enjoy quick and easy treatment in several sessions and not have to worry about unwanted hair again. The treatment is not painful like waxing, and because the laser targets the hair with the greatest precision, the skin will not be damaged.
