Ugh. It’s time to shave again, which means in a few days, you’ll start to see ingrown hairs, razor bumps, acne or itchy skin pop up. When you have sensitive skin, shaving and waxing to have smooth, hairless skin often requires you to suffer through a few days of irritation – or does it?
At ANU Medical Spa, we offer laser hair reduction, a safe, effective and permanent answer to unwanted, unruly facial or body hair. Using lasers to penetrate actively growing hair follicles, the heat from the laser gets deep into the follicle to cause damage, preventing future hair growth. While the lasers are hot enough to damage the follicle, patients often only feel a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Since hair isn’t always in the same phase of growth, patients need to come back for several sessions to effectively reduce hair. While patients typically need between three and six appointments, the number will vary based on thickness of hair, the area being treated and where the hair is in its growth cycle.
Once the series of treatments is complete, patients are often free of hair, and any hairs that may grow back will be fine and light in color. For people with very sensitive skin, laser hair reduction is a wonderful service because it will make them body hair free without the irritation that often usually comes with shaving. After each laser hair reduction session, the treatment area may be slightly pink or swollen for a few hours, but that’s it! You’ll have freshly shaven skin without all the bumps and ingrown hairs.
