Having body and facial hair is a natural part of being human, but sometimes we’d rather go without. It’s time to put away the tweezers, razors, and chemicals and turn to laser hair removal for the best solution for smooth skin.
Our team of aesthetic experts at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, offers laser hair removal as part of our comprehensive line of aesthetic services. We use the latest technology to give our clients the results they’ve dreamed of having.
If you’ve been wondering what areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal, you’re in the right place. We’ve made this guide to give you all the details on laser hair removal and how it can work for you.
All about laser hair removal
Laser hair removal harnesses the power of focused light to target and eliminate hair follicles.. This effective and safe method removes unwanted facial and body hair without hurting or marking your skin, leaving you with the smooth skin you want.
At Sublime Aesthetics Professionals, we use the revolutionary Cynosure Vectus® to target and eliminate unwanted hair. This FDA-approved technology was specifically built for removing unwanted hair, making Vectus more effective than multi-purpose lasers, which are used to remove hair along with many other treatments.
The Vectus system uses a SkinTel® Melanin Reader™ so your provider can accurately adjust the laser’s wavelength to target only the pigment in your hair, leaving your skin unaffected.
The energy from the laser hits the hair shafts deep in your follicles, damaging them, so they can’t produce any more hair. Other features of Vectus include:
- Photon Recycling™ to treat larger areas
- Advanced Contact Cooling™ to keep your skin comfortable
- Uniform laser beam that reduces treatment time and hot spots
Something to keep in mind is laser hair removal only works in the growth stage of the three-part life cycle hair undergoes. Plus, thin, light hair requires more treatment than thick, dark hair. Therefore, you may need several treatment sessions for optimal results.
Treatment areas for laser hair removal
At Sublime Aesthetic Professionals, we can safely treat most areas of the body with laser hair removal. Some areas that can be treated include:
- Arms and legs
- Face (including chin, cheeks, upper lip, and eyebrows)
- Bikini area
Your provider creates a customized hair removal plan to meet your needs based on your aesthetic goals and the condition of your skin and hair. Your provider may also recommend alternatives to laser hair removal in some circumstances.
The effectiveness and number of treatments may vary depending on the area of the body being treated. Our clients tend to benefit from an average of 5-10 sessions of laser hair removal. Here’s what to expect from the most popular treatment areas:
One of the most popular treatment areas for laser hair removal, this procedure can reduce the dark shading you may experience after waxing or shaving. You can expect six to eight treatments for lasting hair reduction in the underarms.
Leg hair is usually darker and thicker than hair in other areas such as your face, meaning it usually responds quite well to laser hair removal. Amazing results are often achieved with just a few treatments.
As the hair on your legs, bikini zone hair is thicker and darker. As such, it is one of the best areas for treatment, giving you dramatic results quickly.
The hair that grows on your face is usually lighter and thinner than other body hair. Laser hair removal can still give you results you will love, but it might take several treatments to achieve them. Additionally, time between sessions may be longer since facial hair has a longer resting phase in the three-part hair cycle.
