“By now, you probably know that laser hair removal is an excellent choice for clients who want to get rid of excess body hair or do away with shaving altogether. Laser hair removal can be used to remove hair on the back, shoulders, legs, armpits, and even the face. Additionally, laser hair removal is much cheaper than in previous generations, thanks to a litany of new technologies.
But with all this choice comes an important question: Is laser hair removal permanent?
The answer is yes – but it depends on the type of laser hair removal technology you use. Certain laser technologies work to slow or reduce hair follicle growth; while this is great for reducing time spent shaving, it’s not exactly a permanent solution to excess body hair.
That’s why El Paso Cosmetic Surgery uses two specific types of laser technologies – each of which deliver permanent hair removal results:
• Lumenis LightSheer Duet Laser: This laser technology not only delivers permanent results, but it also reduces the time needed to remove hair by up to 75%! LightSheer Duet works by quickly heating up the hair follicle’s shaft and bulb, which causes significant damage. Over time, follicular growth slows and eventually stops, leading to a silky-smooth surface.
• Cynosure Vectus Laser: This treatment works in the same way as the Lumenis LightSheer laser; best of all, this laser technology destroys the cells responsible for follicular hair growth without damaging surrounding healthy skin. Like with most hair removal technologies, you’ll need to undergo several treatments to see your best results.
