Getting rid of unwanted hair can be a real pain. As well as dealing with the physical pain of ripping hair out at the root with wax, for example, it is also a tedious inconvenience.
Men and women suffer from unwanted hair. There are many ways of dealing with it – waxing, sugaring, bleaching the hair to make it less obvious, shaving…
But there is another way. One that is relatively painless and convenient. It is also a process that helps to reduce unwanted hair over time and with summer on the in full swing, you can reveal your body beautiful with laser hair removal.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the procedure of using an intense, pulsating beam of light – a laser – to remove unwanted hair.
During the process, the beam of light passes through the skin to each individual hair follicle. The intensity of the laser damages the hair follicle making future hair growth more difficult.
The Pros of Laser Hair Removal
There are many pros to laser hair removal, a technology that has been around some over 20 years;
Efficient – of all the hair removal techniques around, laser hair removal is by far the most efficient.
All areas of the body – removing unwanted hair is a tedious task that most of us face but some people are more conscious of hair on some parts of the body than others. It can be used to remove hair from sensitive areas, such as the bikini line, to the upper lip, chest, abdomen, shoulders, legs…
Speed – it is one of the fastest solutions to removing unwanted body hair. The handheld device used by the certified laser technician can cover a larger area in a small amount of time. For example, removing hair from the upper lip can be completed in seconds, and full leg hair removal in under an hour.
Effective – detractors of this hair removal solution say that it does not lead to permanent hair removal but over the course of six to eight treatments, hair regrowth is minimal. And for many people, this is a welcome change to the years of plucking, waxing and shaving.
Cost-effective – think about how much you spend on waxing, plucking, razors and so on each year to remove unwanted hair. Why not invest this in a course of laser hair removal treatment package that can lead to almost permanent hair removal?
The Pros of Laser Hair Removal with ImageWorks
ImageWorks is proud to be treating our clients with the Cutera Xeo machine, an advanced real laser machine that provides longer and better controlled wavelengths compared to the commonly used IPL machines. By having more control of the laser wavelengths, ImageWorks is able to provide laser hair removal to all skin types and all year round (even safe in the summer!)
All skin types – laser hair removal works for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin. The Cutera Xeo is able to treat skin types 1-6 painlessly, where skin types 5 & 6 can typically should not be treated by IPL machines.
Less pain – we all have different pain thresholds and so some people tell us that the procedure is nothing more than a pinprick sensation, whereas other people find the process uncomfortable. But by having a laser machine with more control, we are able to treat you by accommodating your comfort level as much as possible. Our laser has a chill tip, which cools the skin to 4 degrees prior to the laser pulse, thus making the treatment relatively painless.
Safe – although IPL laser can cause burns if used improperly and especially during the summer months when your skin if already exposed to the sun more often than usual, the Cutera Xeo is able to treat skin all year round. By having slower wavelengths and more control, you will still be able to continue your hair removal appointments all throughout the summer months!
