Shaving waxing to eliminate undesirable hair is sometimes not fun. Do you agree? If this is the case, you might want to consider laser hair reduction and bid goodbye to those undesirable hairs forever.
Laser hair reduction is a popular beauty treatment in most countries. It sends an intense beam of light into the hair follicles and takes in the pigment in the strands. This treatment is easy, stress-free, and convenient.
So, you’ve come to the right spot if you’ve been thinking about laser hair reduction. As you probably already know, there are many things to think about, and it’s essential to do your study before choosing a clinic or an at-home device.
At Method Aesthetics Scottsdale, we’re not only giving you tips on why laser hair reduction is a must. We’ll also provide details on what you can benefit from this treatment and what it is about. Scroll down for more information below.
What is Laser Hair Reduction?
Laser hair removal removes unwanted hair through a concentrated beam of light (a laser). During laser hair removal, a laser sends out a beam of light that the hair’s pigment absorbs.
The light energy is turned into heat, which hurts the tube-shaped sacs in the skin that make hair. This damage stops or slows the growth of hair in the future. Even though laser hair removal slows hair growth for a long time, it doesn’t usually get rid of hair for good.
For the first time, you may need more than one laser hair removal treatment, and you may also
need medicines to keep your hair from growing back. People with light skin and dark hair get the best results from laser hair removal, but it works well on all skin types.
Laser Hair Reduction in Method Aesthetics Scottsdale
We use the Motus AX laser at Method Aesthetics to remove hair without pain on all skin types. The Motus AX laser has been called the best laser hair removal device on the market. It is a high-speed Alexandrite laser that works well on light and dark skin tones.
Laser hair reduction with the Motus AX is fast, doesn’t hurt, and works on more skin types than any other laser on the market. Using this laser is also very good at getting rid of pigmented lesions. Let’s discover more about Motus AX Technology.
Motus AX Technology
Our team uses Motus AX, which has patented Moveo technology. Moveo technology solves the problem that Alexandrite lasers 755nm can’t pull hair out. The device has the same benefits as the Alexandrite laser but moves steadily over a small area.
It slowly heats the part of the hair that is most important and gives off enough heat to kill the hair follicles. The Motus laser hair reduction device is also safe and comfortable because the skin’s temperature drops, and the sapphire tips feel cool.
Laser systems that use both infrared and visible wavelengths send out energy reflected by the skin. This lessens the amount of energy that is needed for healing. The Moveo handpiece, made for the Motus AX laser, solves this problem.
The Benefits of Laser Hair Reduction
You can use lasers to remove hair from places like the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Here are the three main advantages of laser hair reduction.
- Each laser pulse only takes a small amount of time and can treat many hairs simultaneously.
- Every second, the laser can treat an area about the size of a quarter. Small areas like the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, while the back or legs can take up to an hour.
- Lasers can be used to target only dark, coarse hairs without hurting the skin around them.
- After three to seven sessions, most people lose their hair for good.
Possible Side Effects
Most of the time, the side effects are mild and only last 1 to 3 days. Among these side effects are:
Other side effects are rare when laser hair removal is done by a dermatologist or under the direct supervision of a dermatologist. Some other things that could go wrong are:
- Cold sores
- Skin lightening or darkening
Over time, skin color usually goes back to normal. But some changes to skin color last forever. This is why it’s essential to see a doctor who is good at laser treatments and knows much about the skin.
Also, it’s essential to do what your dermatologist tells you. If you follow the instructions before and after treatment, you will be much less likely to have side effects.
What do I need to do after laser hair removal?
All patients should keep their skin out of the sun to avoid possible side effects. After hair removal with a laser, you should:
- Don’t use a sun lamp, tanning bed, or any other indoor tanning device.
- Avoid getting direct sunlight on your skin that has been treated.
- Follow the after-care instructions your dermatologist gives you.
Take note that after treatment, the area will be red and swollen. This looks like a mild sunburn most of the time. Putting on a cool compress can help ease the pain.
Is there downtime?
No, getting rid of hair with a laser usually doesn’t require any downtime. When you get laser hair removal, your skin will be red and swollen immediately. Despite this, most people go back to their everyday lives.
When will I be able to tell if the treatment worked?
Most of the time, you will see the results immediately after treatment. The results are different for each person. The results depend on the color and thickness of your hair, the area treated the type of laser used, and the color of your skin. After the first treatment, you can expect 10% to 25% less hair.
Most people need between 2 and 6 laser treatments to eliminate the hair. Others don’t see any hair on the treated skin for several months or even years after the treatments are done. Usually, the hairs are also more delicate and lighter in color.
How long will laser hair removal reduction last?
Most people don’t get new hair for months or even years. When some of the hair grows back, it will be easier to hide. You may need follow-up laser treatments to keep the area free of hair.
