Long-Term Laser Hair Removal in Jacksonville and Morehead City, NC
Unlike shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, and other methods, laser hair removal provides a long-lasting solution. Although electrolysis offer similar long-term results, it is costly and time-consuming. Because electrolysis requires placement of a needle in every hair follicle, it is also impractical for the treatment of large areas.
The Cynosure Apogee Laser is approved by the FDA for hair reduction in fair-skinned individuals, while the Nd: YAG is used for darker complexions and tanned skin. Both of these lasers offers long-term hair removal for large and small areas without the difficulties and time commitment involved with electrolysis.
The lasers work by destroying hair follicles that are actively growing thereby permanently reducing hair in that area at the time of treatment. At any given time some hair follicles are dormant, meaning you will likely need multiple procedures.
To date, all areas have been successfully treated with laser hair removal including the upper lip, chin, underarms, bikini lines, and larger areas such as the arms, legs, and back.
Laser Hair Removal Downtime and Discomfort
A moderate amount of discomfort can be expected depending on the area being treated. This is significantly lessened by chilled air being continuously blown over the skin surface. Topical anesthetic creams can also be used if the patient desires.
There is no downtime to the laser hair removal procedure, and patients may resume normal activities immediately.
