At Live Young, we use Intense Pulse Light laser to safely and permanently remove unwanted hair for most skin types.
Treatments with our laser are very effective yet minimally uncomfortable and you can return to normal activities after treatment. Hair grows in batches; to capture all the hair cycles usually 6 treatments are required for permanent results. The treatment removes the hair and its follicle leaving the skin smooth. Many patients start to see hair thinning and smoother skin after 3-4 sessions. As with other laser systems, it is not effective for very fair, grey or red hair or very dark skin.
Tanning should be avoided while undergoing any IPL treatments- talk to us about sun protection so that your treatment series is uninterrupted.
The Lesser-Known Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Just the mere thought of being hairless is exciting; the lesser-known benefits may also be reason enough to give the treatment a try!
Smooth Skin Everyone wants to have baby-smooth skin and permanent hair removal can help make that happen! Removing hair follicles not only rids your skin of unwanted hair, but it also gets rid of both bumpy and pimply skin. This is extremely effective in the bikini area, which can become as smooth as your inner thigh.
Less Sweating, Less Anxiety
You won’t realize how much you used to stress over unwanted hair maintenance until after you’ve had laser hair removal. It’s freeing to not shave, plan for your next waxing appointment or go out unexpectedly with monkey legs. Additionally, the sweat glands, as well as the hair follicles, are affected by the laser = less hair + less perspiration.
No More Pre-Waxing Growth
Long gone will be the days of preparing for your waxing appointment or managing hair with plucking, creams and shaving and the consequences of ingrown hair, scarring, redness and pigmentation changes from inflammation.
No More Folliculitis
Inflamed hair follicles and ingrown hairs will both become troubles of the past with laser hair removal. With the removal of the hair follicle, there’s nothing to get inflamed or to even grow!
No More Underarm Shadow
Dark, stubbly hair underneath the surface of the skin causes the underarm shadow. Removing the hair, as well as any inflammation caused by shaving, gets rid of this stubbly 5 o’clock shadow. The skin becomes as smooth and clear as the rest of the inner arm! The same is true with backs and bikinis.
