25 Jan 2013
Having hair in unwanted places can be embarrassing. Whether the hair is on your legs, arms or face, if it is prominent and making you feel self-conscious then you probably wish there was some way you could get rid of this hair.
Of course, the last thing you want to do is undergo skin treatments that will cause even more unsightly skin problems and make you feel that you look even worse. Well, there is no need to worry about laser hair removal. This procedure is a completely safe way of removing hair and you will not be left with any unsightly marks or nasty side-effects. The only result you will notice after laser hair treatment is smooth, soft and hair-free skin. This treatment is carried out by well-trained dermatologists and it is practically pain free too so you will hardly feel a thing.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair treatment targets a laser beam at the root of the hair follicle to stop hair growth. You can have it done on any part of your body, including sensitive areas such as your face, underarms and bikini area.
The length of the treatment varies between individuals and can depend on the area being treated. Generally, you will have a 15-45 minute session every 4-6 weeks for up to 8 months.
Some people may experience a small amount of redness or swelling straight after each treatment but this should subside within 24 hours. There are no long-lasting side effects that will cause you embarrassment and you just need to remember to not book these skin treatments within 24 hours of an important occasion so any possible swelling or redness has time to calm down.
Once you have completed your laser hair removal treatments, you will never have to be embarrassed again because all of your unwanted hair will have been removed - leaving you free to wear the clothes you want and feel more confident.
