Unwanted hair is something we all have in common, and during the pandemic, most of us have noticed it more than ever! Thankfully, with a roadmap to reopening, the team at Koha, a luxury skin clinic in Berkhamsted, are getting ready to welcome you back and get rid of that unwanted hair!
If we were to tell you that the most popular non-surgical beauty treatment wasn’t Botox, what would you instantly think that it was? If you guessed laser hair removal, you would be right! Men are also a growing group of fans, with almost as many men opting for the treatment as women.
So, what makes it such an ideal solution for unwanted hair? And why would you even worry about that unwanted hair in the first place?
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a process that uses light from a safe laser to remove unwanted hair. The laser creates a beam light that’s absorbed by the hair, which transforms it to heat and damages the hair follicles. The result is that future growth is either prevented entirely or inhibited.
The permanency of the results will vary from person to person, so some may experience permanent hair loss after a couple of treatments, while others may need periodically repeated sessions.
Laser hair removal can be used in a range of areas, including the arms, legs, upper lip, chin and bikini line. Almost anywhere apart from around the eyes can have the treatment, but areas with tattoos should be avoided.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Why would you go to all that trouble when you can just grab a razor and shave the hair off? And why even worry about errant hairs anyway?
Self Confidence – For some people, removing unwanted hair from certain areas of their body can boost their self-confidence. The hair causes them to feel awkward about themselves, but some areas are not easy to shave.
Laser hair removal allows them to have the hair removed and feel better.
Precise & Predictable Results – Another reason the procedure is popular is that it is very precise and gives predictable, proven results. Most patients report between 80-90% reduction in unwanted hair after a removal procedure. As a bonus, the surrounding skin isn’t damaged or inflamed the way it can be with normal shaving processes.
Quick & Almost Painless – The final benefit is that the procedure is quick and almost painless. We can remove upper lip hair in just a couple of minutes, and larger areas such as the legs will only take about an hour. While there may be some sensation involved, most patients say it is far less painful than waxing.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
As with any procedure, you should always go to a specialist to get your treatment. Using a laser isn’t something that should be done without the right training, so always make sure you are at a clinic with the right qualifications for the job. If you are concerned about any risks, chat with your clinician first, and they will be able to go into more details about the procedure.
