How many times have you muttered the phrase, “AARRRGGG I forgot to shave my ______”? Or gone to get a wax only to walk out wincing in pain? If you are like many of us out there you continue to shave or wax because you don’t think there is any other option. You have heard of Laser Hair Removal but never considered it an option for you. With summer right around the corner why not consider Laser Hair Removal? It may be the best investment you’ve made for yourself all year!
Cost of Laser Hair Removal
The cost of Laser Hair Removal (LHR) is worth it in the end! After 4 years of buying razors you would have paid for LHR for that area. After only 2 years of waxing you would have paid for LHR for that area. Not to mention the fact that when you wax you have to go back every 3-4 weeks, the hair stays the same and ALWAYS comes back. Same with shaving, you keep shaving and the hair keeps coming back! Some individuals suffer from ingrown hairs with waxing and shaving, and we all know that is no walk in the park! Laser Hair Removal will get rid of ingrown hairs by penetrating into the skin where the ingrown hair is located, no more hair and no more scarring! Commonly treated areas include: upper lip, chin, beard, back of neck, underarms, areola, bikini, legs, arms, back and abdomen. At Thrive, our laser systems allow us to treat the full body – no limits!
What does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?
So what does the treatment feel like? This depends on the type of hair and skin type of the client. For brown hair and light to medium skin types, it is virtually painless. Often patients feel a gentle and warm sensation as the skin is drawn into the treatment tip. For darker skin types with black hair, some patients briefly experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation, similar to a quick, warm rubber band snap. The feeling is transient and there is not residual pain. If you are someone with an extremely low pain tolerance, or are worried about if it is going to hurt in a sensitive area, talk to your skin care professional about the possibility of using a topical anesthetic.
Laser Hair Removal typically requires 4-8 treatments to get excellent long-term results. However, the exact number of treatments varies from person to person and often varies between body parts being treated. It is a quick procedure that will fit into any hectic schedule. A small area such as facial hair and underarms can take as little as 5-15 minutes. More detailed areas such as the bikini take about 30 minutes and large areas, such as back or legs can take 45 minutes or more depending on size.
