Unwanted hair. It can be a figurative or literal pain to remove, takes time, and is quite possibly the least liked chore in a hygiene routine for both men and women. A meticulous appearance requires carefully groomed hair, so if you’re tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing, The Face & Body Place has your laser hair removal answer waiting for you.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Dr. Kimberly Finder carefully vets every single piece of technology at The Face & Body Place to ensure it delivers on its promises, and the Candela Alexandrite or YAG lasers fit the bill for laser hair removal. They work by sending pulses of laser energy right into the hair follicle, damaging them at the source to initiate shedding. The Alexandrite laser’s shorter wavelength is indicated best for lighter skin tones, while the YAG laser works best for darker skin with its longer wavelength capable of honing in on the hair’s pigment rather than the skin’s. Because only 30% of hair is in the active growth phase at any one time, multiple treatments are recommended for complete reduction of the hair as dormant follicles enter active growth to replace those you’ve already shed. Depending on the laser treatment, you may require between 5 -12 sessions to reach your hair removal goals. That doesn’t mean improvement takes that long. You’ll notice thinner, sparser hair after just 2-3 treatments.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
The first benefit is the savings, both in time and money. Yes, laser hair removal can be expensive, but when considered over the cost of a lifetime supply of razors, waxing appointments, or depilatory creams, the cost of laser hair removal is extremely competitive.
Secondly, while laser hair removal may not get rid of every strand of unwanted hair, growth is drastically reduced to the point where a few tweezes can give your skin that smooth, hair-free feel you’re hoping for.
Laser Hair Removal Consultations Available
Have hair in a strange place, like the small of your back, or on your upper arms? Laser hair removal can handle it. Almost anywhere on the body (excluding near the eyes) can be treated, and quickly. Lasers can cover small areas (upper lip, underarms, or bikini line) or large (back, chest, legs) quickly, and appointments are fast and convenient.
Laser hair removal may be more painful than shaving (unless you cut yourself), but it’s less painful than waxing. Universally, patients report the sensation as little pinches or rubber band snaps that are tolerable and over quickly. Topical numbing creams are also available for comfort. Once your treatment plan is executed, no more pain.
Lastly, the boost to your confidence is powerful. Raise your arms, hold your chin high, and bare those legs knowing they look good, hair-free, and are touchably smooth. For this benefit alone, laser hair removal is worth it.
Dr Finder and her staff were awesome. She was thorough, professional and answered all my questions. I went to a few physicians in SA and she was the only one that did not try to sell me on other procedures. CB is such a great lady, she’s a great asset to Dr. Finders office. I’m very happy I found a great doctor.
