How to Get Rid of Your Unwanted Hair Forever with Laser Hair Removal

Many people struggle with removing undesirable body and facial hair. Laser hair removal is an excellent way to remove unwanted hair forever. Using state-of-the-art equipment, the lasers target hair follicles beneath your skin for an effective long-term solution. 

In Modesto, California, Aesthetic Lab is an innovative medical spa offering many advanced aesthetic treatments. Consider laser hair removal if you’re tired of tweezing, shaving, and waxing to get gorgeous smooth skin. Our experts, Dr. Jamie Mcmorris, Esthetician, and Gifty Aidoo, FNP-C, provide many cutting-edge treatments to enhance your beauty routine, including laser hair removal. 

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses intense pulsed light (IPL), damaging the hair follicle with a light beam so that it can never regrow hair. As the light pulses, it penetrates up to five-millimeters deep into the skin. There, the hair’s melanin transmits light impulses to neighboring cells. The light is then converted into heat, destroying hair follicles. Your existing hair falls out, and any new hair growth stops. 

We can permanently remove hair on nearly any part of your body, including:

  • Chin
  • Above the lip
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Forearm
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Legs

Unlike other hair removal methods, laser treatment is almost painless, making it especially suitable for sensitive places like your bikini area and armpits. 

Benefits of using laser hair removal for cosmetic and health reasons

Many men and women seek permanent hair removal as a personal cosmetic preference. But patients with sensitive skin who experience frequent ingrown hairs benefit from permanent hair removal. Patients with hypertrichosis, a condition in which hair grows excessively everywhere on the body, seek laser hair removal for hygiene and health reasons.

Smooth skin

Laser hair removal leaves you with permanently smooth skin without annoying stubble. Permanent hair removal provides great relief, especially for parts of the body that you usually have to shave frequently or in hard-to-reach areas. In men, for example, we can permanently remove hair from the back. Women can also have unwanted hair removed from their arms, legs, or face in this way.

Less irritation

Another advantage of permanent hair removal is avoiding chronic skin irritation from shaving, plucking, epilation, or waxing. Bikini area skin is generally very sensitive. Laser hair removal is gentler on the skin. You won’t have to worry about ingrown hairs or razor burn during bikini season.

Low risk

Laser hair removal is low risk, promising safe and lasting results. Side effects are incredibly rare, and you’ll likely experience nothing more than slight redness or swelling after hair removal. Any signs that you notice disappear quickly, within a few hours.

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is suitable for women and men who no longer want to constantly remove annoying body hair by hand. If you want soft silky skin, you’re a suitable candidate for laser hair removal.

Getting the best results from laser hair removal requires more than one treatment. We set sessions at intervals ranging from 4-16 weeks, depending on the part of the body undergoing treatment.
