It doesn’t matter if the hair is too light or too dark, considered too thick or thin, or on an unwanted area like the upper lip, chin, or back. Whatever the case may be, body hair that is unwanted can present quite a challenge, it can also cause a woman to feel embarrassed at times and in situations like waxing can be extremely painful to remove.
At Pierce Medical Clinic, we can help you eliminate all of these situations easily and permanently with our latest laser hair removal treatment procedure. The way it works is that the melanin in the hair follicle will absorb the highly targeted heat from the laser beam and cause the injury and even death of the cells responsible for hair growth.
Getting ready for the procedure
To get ready, the patient is advised to avoid any prior waxing or plucking sessions before getting it. It is also important that the patient should avoid long term exposure to the sun as it will make the procedure less effective and can cause other complications after treatment. The best advice is to use sunscreen and to avoid other treatments six weeks prior.
Shaving your hair the night before is advised. You will then be given a special cream to numb the area to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.
The professionals at Pierce Medical Clinic will then help instruct you through the process. They will keep a close eye to make sure that your skin is reacting appropriately. The length of the procedure will be in direct correlation to the size of the area to be treated.
The Recovery Procedure
You may experience slight swelling in the area after the procedure which is completely normal, but should subside soon after, typically within a few hours. It’s then important that you keep the area clean and wear a minimum of SPF 15 sunscreen any time you will be outdoors. You will most likely have to expect several treatments in order to see the the full effect of hair removal. It’s important to notice that any hair that does grow in will be considerably finer as well as lighter.
How Much Does It Cost?
The cost will depend entirely on the size of the area and the amount of treatments needed. At Pierce Medical Clinic, we aim to give you the best possible service for the best price and to perform the procedures which are convenient for you.
