Are you fed up with the continual shaving and waxing of your unwanted body hair – especially during the spring and summer months? Then let laser hair removal in Upminster help you.
As the easy choice for removing hair in various places on your body – including your legs, underarm and bikini area – laser hair removal is safe and effective. Here at Upminster, we use the Cynosure Elite, which is used on different kinds of hair and skin type – although you will need dark pigmentation in your hair for it to work.
The dual-wavelength system of the Cynosure Elite targets hair follicles and the heat from the laser will harm them, subsequently stopping hair growth in the future. Responsible for attacking melanin – the type of pigment that gives colour to the hair – the darker the hair, the more effective the laser hair removal treatments will be.
The Cynosure Elite precisely removes unwanted hairs even in the small and delicate parts of the body, by using two laser systems – 755NM Alexandrite and 1064NM ND:YAG. The Cynosure Elite switches between the two wavelengths, depending on a patient’s skin and hair types. It doesn’t involve the use of any chemical substances coming into contact with the skin – meaning it’s hygienic and clean.
Benefits of laser hair removal
Responsible for reducing hair growth of 80 – 90%, laser hair removal treatments have a number of benefits:
Laser hair removal can save money in the long run. Spending money on waxing or shaving products over your lifetime can really add up! Paying for laser hair removal treatments is kinder to your purse over the longer-term.
Laser hair removal takes less time than shaving your legs and armpits every couple of days! This is something which is particularly loved by the women who regularly have laser hair removal treatments.
- Reduction in ingrown hairs
Ingrown hairs can be painful and troublesome – particularly when you are shaving your legs ready for your only holiday abroad! They occur when the hair grows back into the skin and appear as red lumps, often itchy and sore. They can even become infected, requiring antibiotics. Laser hair removal kills hair follicles which stops new hairs growing, preventing ingrown hairs for years to come.
- Improvement in skin appearance
Consistent waxing and shaving can cause skin irritation, including dry skin and rashes. Regular waxing also contributes to red bumps, and even boils, on the skin. Although laser hair removal causes some slight redness in the skin immediately after the treatment, it dissipates within a couple of hours and results in smooth, silky skin.
- Carried out at any time
When you have your legs and armpit hair waxed, you usually have to wait until the hair is quite long, which can make the process leading up to waxing quite embarrassing! When undergoing laser hair removal treatments, you don’t need to grow the hair first, as it can be carried out when the hair is short.
Once you’ve had your first treatment of laser hair removal in Upminster, you can expect to undergo a further 6 – 12 treatments, every 6 – 8 weeks. If you are using laser hair removal treatments for facial hair, then you can expect to undergo the laser hair removal every 4 weeks.
The laser hair removal treatments will continue until hair stops growing in the treated area and repeated treatments will make sure each stage of hair growth is managed. As mentioned above, if you don’t have any pigment in your hair follicles, laser hair removal won’t be effective. And you may also find different results if you are undergoing any hormonal changes – such as the hair growing back quicker – but we will be able to advise you along the way.
When having laser hair removal, it’s important that you don’t do any further waxing, shaving or threading, as this can reduce the effects of the treatments. And, before undergoing laser hair removal in Upminster, it’s imperative that you have a chat with our experts at Aesthetics of Essex.
