Spring is here and you know what this means; it’s time to take out those flirty frocks, stylish shorts, and snazzy shirts. But before you go ahead and don your skimpiest, it’s time to check if everything’s smooth sailing in the body hair department.
If not addressed, body hair can ruin your plans and can lead to wardrobe challenges and malfunctions. While regular shaving, waxing, and epilating do help, they can get quite bothersome and time-consuming. A long-lasting solution is a great way to rid you of your body hair concerns.
Laser hair removal by the specialists at the Asarch Dermatology & Aesthetics
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic dermatological procedure that is performed to get rid of unwanted body hair. If you’re tired of the constant need to wax or shave or you experience extremely severe body hair growth, then the laser hair removal treatment is right for you.
The team at Asarch Dermatology has extensive experience in performing laser hair removal on both men and women. If you’d like more information about our services, feel free to send us an email or give us a call.
How does the procedure work?
In the laser hair removal treatment, doctors direct highly-focused IPL laser towards the hair follicles in the body. The hair follicles in the treated area absorb the light, which, in turn, destroys the hair, resulting in hair fall.
Depending on the area of the body to be treated and the extensiveness of the treatment, the entire procedure can be completed very quickly in under an hour.
Preparing for the procedure
The laser hair removal procedure is designed to target the hair follicles just under the skin. You will be expected to shave before your very first appointment. Avoid waxing for up to three weeks before the treatment to allow the hair follicles to grow.
Our cosmetic dermatologist will perform a patch test to see if your skin is allergic to the laser and depending on the result, he/she will perform the procedure.
You may notice slight swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness in the skin post-procedure. But these will reduce a few hours after the treatment. The doctors at any of our Colorado skin care clinics will provide pain medication and anti-inflammatory lotions to help reduce the symptoms.
Be sure to use ice packs and cold water to cool your skin. Avoid going into the sun for a few days, as your skin will be extremely sensitive. Maintain a strict skincare regime to keep your skin supple and soft.
