Nothing ruins a trip to the beach, a relaxing afternoon by the pool or lake, or even wearing your favorite summer outfit like unwanted body hair.
And most common hair removal solutions like shaving, waxing, and chemical depilatories can be messy and irritate your skin. To make matters worse, you have to repeat the process again within a few days or weeks, further irritating your skin in the process.
At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic in Ashburn, Virginia, Nasrin Ejtemaee, MD, and our team of master estheticians offer laser hair removal and a range of aesthetic services. Here’s how we can help you.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal is an effective way to get rid of unwanted hair on your face and body for good.
Unlike other hair removal methods, which temporarily remove hair at the surface, laser hair removal with the Lumenis® Splendor X™ system uses heat to target the hair follicles and limit hair growth in its tracks.
Hair regrowth diminishes over time, and you don’t have to worry about razor burn, ingrown hairs, or other side effects of shaving, waxing, or chemical hair removal products.
What areas of my body can you target with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal with Lumenis Splendor X is safe to use on your face and other parts of the body including your:
- Bikini area
Some people experience mild irritation or redness after a session depending on their skin type, but these side effects usually clear up within a few hours or days after treatment.
Will the hair grow back after laser removal?
Laser treatment stops new hair growth, so most of our patients experience lasting results. Hair that does grow back tends to be much lighter and thinner after laser hair removal.
Depending on how thick and coarse your hair is and the area of your body that we treat, you may need several sessions to get the best results.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Some people are more sensitive to pain than others, and you may experience mild pinching or discomfort during a laser hair removal treatment. While most of our patients don’t experience pain, we offer topical numbing during your session to keep you comfortable.
Say goodbye to the stress, discomfort, and embarrassment of dealing with unwanted hair on your face and body. For more information about laser hair removal, contact us today to schedule a consultation or request an appointment using our online system.
