Laser hair removal is a very popular procedure used today by both men and women wishing to remove unwanted hair from their body. The way laser hair removal works is the doctor or specialist shoots a beam of light down to the base of the skin allowing the root of the hair to absorb the light while burning it from the inside. Laser hair removal is considered a relatively painless procedure.
Both men and women have hair on areas of their bodies that they want to remove. There are many ways to remove hair on a temporary basis such as creams, waxing and shaving, however, most women and men would like a means of permanent hair removal. Although laser hair removal does not remove hair permanently, it is by far the most effective procedure for permanent hair reduction.
"Unsightly hair can be an embarrassment whereas smooth skin is generally perceived as more appealing and sexy. Many are now turning to laser hair removal in order to achieve permanent hair reduction", say the folks at Getmeso.com. The most common areas for women are the face, arms, underarms, legs and bikini line. For men the most common areas are the face (facial hair removal)), chest (chest hair removal), leg (leg hair removal) and back (back hair removal). Laser hair removal is considered a quick and relatively painless process that offers a way to save time while allowing one to achieve the appearance one desires.
How Many Treatments
Lazer hair removal is a customized cosmetic procedure. The number of treatments your friend or sister received may not be the same number as you will need.
The number of treatments any patient will receive is totally dependant on the individual's needs and desires and the extent of treatment needed in the areas being treated. Your laser hair removal specialist will be able to give you an accurate idea of how many treatments you will require on your initial consultation.
The of treatments that are initially recommended average around four treatments. However, the number of treatments will vary depending on the location and size of the area.
Results can depend on many variables, including skill of the practitioner, the type of laser used and how the settings are set. You may want to start with one small area before committing to a set of treatments on many areas at once. The skill of the practitioner is of the greatest importance. Therefore when choosing a laser hair removal doctor or practitioner, make sure that he or she is licensed and certified in laser procedures.
Besides Laser Hair Removal Some of Our Most Popular Procedures Include:
Mesotherapy - a very effective cellulite treatment in the hands of a certified mesotherapy professional. Cellulite is a skin condition seen commonly in the hips, thighs and buttocks. The cottage cheese appearance or multiple dimples on the skin occurs in over 90% of post pubescent women. It is not related to being overweight, as some people believe, but rather to genetics. When mesotherapy is performed, the cellulite area develops increased blood and lymphatic flow, decreased fibrosis of the connective tissue, and reduction of the fat deposits. The net result is a smoothing of the skin and cellulite reduction
Lipodissolve - a non surgical medical procedure that involves the injection of a compound called phosphatidylcholine into the skin to dissolve fat. Phosphatidylcoline (PPC) is a naturally occuring enzyme and is the main component of soy lecithin. Lecithin has been medically proven to have the ability to break down fat and reduce cholesterol. PPC has been used for fat removal and cellulite reduction by physicians for several years now as a safe non invasive alternative to surgical procedures such as liposuction. The compound is administered through a series of micro-injections to permanently dissolve the fat in unwanted areas. The compound is delivered directly into the subcutaneous fat through multiple microinjections administered over one to three treatment sessions spaced about six weeks apart. The treatment is meant to dissolve fat , which is removed from the body through normal waste removal. The desired end result is precise body contouring in localized areas. Although similar, lipodissolve is not to be confused with mesotherapy.
SmartLipo - also known as laser liposuction, laser lipo and lunchtime lipo, is the latest fat removal treatment. The technique was first discovered in Europe and has recently become FDA approved for use in the USA. The technique has been used for the past 10 years in South America, Europe and Asia. The Smart Lipo procedure involves the use of a laser that dissolves the fat and tightens the surrounding skin. The procedure is done in an office and does not require the use of a general anesthetic.
Velasmooth - is the first non-invasive, cellulite reduction system that is FDA approved. It is performed using a medical device that utilizes elos technology. It is safe and has been proven effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite.
