Body hair removal methods can be harsh on your skin — and annoying. Most at-home hair removal treatments require continuous use to keep the hair off your underarms, legs, and other areas. If you want long-lasting, effective hair removal, come to Legacy Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics in Exton, PA.
We perform laser hair removal services for patients who are tired of shaving, waxing, and hair removal creams. After just a few sessions, your skin will be free of stubble and pesky body hair. Here’s how laser hair removal works.
IPL Laser Hair Removal
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. We use IPL laser treatments to remove unwanted body hair. The light pulses emitted by the device target body hair that is darker than your skin. They should not affect the surrounding skin.
The light energy from the laser turns into heat that damages hair follicles. This prevents body hair from regrowing or creating itchy stubble. It takes a few sessions for the laser to destroy all of your hair follicles in a certain area.
After your laser hair removal services are complete, you no longer have to worry about at-home body hair removal methods. You are free to enjoy smoother, softer skin without unwanted hair.
You might be wondering why you should choose laser hair removal services over shaving, waxing, or creams.
The Advantages of Laser Hair Removal
If you are tired of dealing with unsightly, unwanted body hair, consider the many advantages of laser hair removal.
In most cases, laser hair removal services can be performed in under an hour. Larger body areas can take up to one hour per session. In our office, you can select multiple body areas to treat with our IPL laser device at once. This will save you time and allow you to get back to your daily tasks quickly.
Shaving and other hair removal methods can take a lot of time without the precise results that laser hair removal offers. If you have a jam-packed schedule, laser hair removal is right for you.
IPL laser hair removal uses advanced light technology to remove unwanted body hair. This means that you get more precise, defined results. The laser targets only dark body hair follicles. Because the light focuses on the pigment in your hair, it should not affect your skin.
You might run across problems like ingrown hairs and stubble when you shave your body hair. Razors can cause bumps, irritation, rashes, and itchiness. If your skin undergoes a lot of friction throughout the day, shaving can easily cause discomfort.
With laser hair removal, the hairs are removed at the follicle, so you don’t have to worry about stubble. The follicle seals off permanently so no hairs can grow inward and cause discomfort.
When you shave, wax, or use hair removal creams, your hair always grows back. This gets costly, annoying, and time-consuming.
Laser hair removal produces long-term results. We can remove up to 90% of your body hair and limit regrowth to a minimum within a few sessions. You can spend much less time and money on waxing or shaving after laser hair removal.
Our laser hair removal services cover a wide range of body parts. No matter where you experience unwanted hair, you can eliminate it with this procedure. From your bikini line to your back, we have treatment options for everyone. You can show off smoother, hair-free skin in nearly any area of your body.
Laser hair removal is an FDA-approved procedure. It has been used for many years, and technology is only improving over time. We use IPL laser treatments, which harness the power of pulsed light energy. IPL is more efficient and comfortable for patients than less advanced laser hair removal procedures.
Body Treatment Areas
Where can you get laser hair removal on your body? There are numerous body areas our patients have treated with this procedure. We can make almost any body area free of pesky hairs with the IPL handheld device.
We can treat the following areas on your body:
- Bikini line
- Pubic area
If you experience unwanted hair growth in any of these areas, consider laser hair removal in Exton, PA. We are here to give you the smooth skin you desire without stubble or frustrating regrowth.
Preparing for Your Treatment
Before you come in for laser hair removal services, you should follow our pre-procedure instructions carefully. You will receive detailed information during your consultation and before you schedule your first appointment.
We’ll ask you to follow several steps to ensure your treatment is effective and as comfortable as possible.
Avoid direct sun exposure before and after laser hair removal. This will keep your skin more comfortable and help it heal faster after the treatment. The sun produces harmful rays that can damage your skin, and your skin needs to be healthy before undergoing laser treatments.
Do not use hair removal creams or wax the treatment areas in the weeks leading up to your appointment. This can interfere with the laser’s ability to target your hair follicles. It is best to let your body hair grow naturally and then follow our in-office instructions from there.
