Laser hair removal is a hair reduction method that offers long-lasting results. You don’t have to deal with the hassle of shavers or wax strips, and it can save you time and money. However, if you need professional waxing, Ardmore Aesthetic Solutions also offers this service for your convenience.
Some people may not qualify for laser hair removal. If you’re pregnant, currently taking acne medications, or have raised scars or skin cancer, the team at Ardmore Aesthetic Solutions may recommend other treatments.
After a consultation, they determine if laser hair removal can benefit you. They discuss your desired results and examine areas of concern where you want hair removal.
It’s important to follow your provider’s instructions before you have laser hair removal. They might ask you to stop taking certain medications, avoid tanning creams, and protect your skin from the sun.
You should also avoid using other hair removal methods for at least one month and shave the treatment area one day prior to your appointment.
During your hair removal procedure, you lie down comfortably on an exam table or reclining chair. Your provider at Ardmore Aesthetic Solutions numbs the treatment area to ensure you stay comfortable throughout the procedure. They then give you protective glasses that will shield your eyes from the laser.
Your provider uses a handheld device that will emit laser energy to heat and destroy hair follicles. Treatment causes the hair to fall out over time.
The time it takes to complete the process depends on the size of the treatment area, but the team can let you know what to expect during your consultation.
You can expect some redness and swelling in the treatment area for a few hours. The team at Ardmore Aesthetic Solutions recommends icing the areas to reduce discomfort. You should also protect your skin from the sun and wear sunscreen.
Many people can benefit from multiple laser hair removal sessions to get the best results. Your provider can help you schedule additional sessions as needed.
