Among the current aesthetic trends, it is increasingly common that less hair is wanted on the skin, especially the armpits, legs, mustache, intimate area, and bikini line. To remove unwanted hair, people generally use traditional methods like razors and wax. However, their prolonged use can darken, irritate, and cause allergies and folliculitis (ingrown hairs) on the skin. Laser hair removal is another alternative that helps us eliminate unwanted hair and can also bring benefits to our skin.
Benefits of laser hair removal:
The laser device provides greater smoothness to the skin in the treated areas since the wave and intensity used destroys the hair without affecting the tissues. You will notice that the skin is smoother, brighter, and free of dryness.
This is one of the most apparent advantages of laser hair removal. When you continuously use the razor, the first layer of the skin is affected and darkens. People notice that the skin begins to regenerate and have its natural color again by opting for the laser.
Provides elasticity and improves the skin:
When you start the laser sessions, the skin begins a regeneration process. By not using the razor blade, irritations and encysting of the follicle are avoided. Likewise, the skin recovers
elasticity and luminosity in the treated areas.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser Hair Removal is a simple technique through which the hair’s melanin (dark color) attracts the laser light, leading it to the root where the hair follicle is located. This follicle is responsible for the hair’s growth, and once the laser reaches it, it is destroyed, preventing the hair from growing back again.
