Your razor can be an important component of your daily routine. This is especially the case when you are dealing with facial hair. The appearance of unwanted hair can be tough to maintain. To avoid nicks, cuts and scrapes, you started using an electric razor. Even that is not always able to totally eliminate hair because it still feels rough after you are finished shaving. But, these are the lengths you go to to keep your body hair maintained in an attempt to control unwanted hair. If only it were easier to eliminate hair without spending the extra time and money. Fortunately, advancements in laser hair removal can help you shelf your razor and avoid the need to constantly keep up with hair removal maintenance at River Region Dermatology.
While it may seem normal to have to handle unwanted body hair with a razor, it is not always a practical way to manage it if you are experiencing excess hair or hair that grows back quickly. Modern advances has lead to the production of lasers that zap hair off your body at an amazing speed. These lasers can remove multiple hairs at a time. This means that getting rid of the hair on your upper lip or chin can be addressed in a few short minutes. If you want to treat a larger area of your body, such as your legs, arms or back, then it may take longer. The important thing to note is that lasers do not cut, nick, scrape or do significant damage to your skin when the laser hair removal treatment is performed by a professional. This truly is the way to get flawless, smooth skin the easy way.
At the present time, you may not totally prevent hair regrowth with a single laser treatment session. However, after three or more sessions, you should start to notice that there is a significant reduction in the thickness of the hair regrowth. As the follicles receive more damage from the photons reaching their pigment, they typically stop producing hair over time. The more sessions you have with the laser, the less frequently the hair will grow back too. This means that you may not have to rely on your razor as much as you used to. In fact, you should eventually reach a point where you will not have any hair regrowth for weeks, months or even years.
