Take a moment and appreciate the time we live in! We exist at a time where we get to have permanent, or at least long-lasting, hair removal. No more yelling as strips of wax are ripped off your skin, and no more embarrassing razor bumps. Finally, you get to shower and head straight out! If you are thinking of getting laser hair removal in the El Paso area, there are some things that are helpful to know before your treatment.
1. Laser Hair Removal Targets the Pigment
Laser hair removal in El Paso does not zap hair away; it works by targeting the pigment in the follicles. It then destroys the root hair, preventing it from regrowing.
2. You Need a Consultation
You need to undergo a consultation with our expert before deciding laser hair removal treatment in El Paso is right for you. This will help us to know whether you will get a reaction during treatment and also indicate whether you have sensitive skin. Our specialist will then be able to determine if you are suitable for the treatment and the most relevant course of action for your skin.
3. Not One Treatment
Laser hair removal in El Paso requires repeat procedures for efficiency. You will need a series of laser hair removal treatment sessions to get rid of all the unwanted hair. The hair growth cycle has three stages: active, where most hair grows; catagen, where the hair follicles begin to collapse; and finally, telogen, where the hair starts to shed. Your hair will be in different stages, so this requires multiple laser treatments to catch all of them.
4. Stay Out of the Sun
Before and after your appointment, ensure that you stay out of the sun. Staying in the sun may give you a tan or sunburn that makes your skin sensitive and more prone to scarring, burns and hyperpigmentation.
5. The Appointments are Convenient
Laser hair removal in El Paso targets the hair follicles during a simple treatment that is performed in the comfort of our office.
