Yes, You Can Remove Hair There

Laser hair removal is one of the safest and most convenient ways to achieve smooth skin without plucking, shaving, or waxing. 

Both men and women who opt for laser hair removal can expect to have most of their hair in the treated area enter a state of dormancy. This means it takes longer for the hairs to grow back, and when they do grow back, they’re finer and in smaller numbers. 

If you’re tired of getting caught off guard when invited to a pool or beach party, read on. Below, our specialists at New Age Aesthetics & Wellness explain everything you need to know about laser hair removal.

Areas targeted by laser hair removal

Lasers target the pigment in the hair, leaving the surrounding areas unharmed. Because only the hair follicles are destroyed, you can enjoy laser treatments almost anywhere on your body, including your back, chest, abdomen, and legs. You can even target sensitive areas such as the face and the bikini line. 

Preparing for your laser hair removal appointment 

Laser hair removal is a straightforward procedure, but it does carry some risks, especially if you don’t prepare your skin before the treatment. 

During the few weeks preceding your appointment, you should avoid sunbeds, sun exposure, plucking, and waxing. Trim your hair with razors while leaving the hair roots intact. 

What to expect during the procedure 

Depending on the size of the treated area, the procedure may last anywhere between 10-30 minutes. 

Some patients may experience slight discomfort during the procedure, but our experts can apply a topical numbing cream if you desire. Our expert may also apply a cooling gel to prevent your skin from overheating.

Once the procedure is finished, our experts may recommend ice packs if you experience redness in the treatment area. 

Find out if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal

Ideal candidates for the treatment have healthy skin and don’t suffer from active acne, lesions, or skin conditions in the areas in which they wish to remove hair. 

In the past, only candidates with dark hair and light skin could benefit from laser hair removal. However, now even people with darker skin complexions can take advantage of laser hair removal, as laser technology has become more advanced in recent years. 

If you’re tired of waxing, plucking, and shaving, we can help. Contact us to schedule an appointment at our office in Parker, Colorado, and find out if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal.
