Laser hair removal
Shaving, waxing, and plucking unwanted hair becomes tiresome. Laser hair removal puts time back in your day...plus it looks and feels great! ;)
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses powerful laser energy to destroy hair follicles that produce unwanted hair, so you’re left with smooth skin. Both men and women can reap the benefits!
During the treatment, Katie directs the laser at predetermined treatment areas. The energy penetrates your outer layer of skin and is soaked up by the pigment in the hair follicles that lie beneath. The energy renders the follicles unable to grow hair any longer, resulting in hair-free skin.
What areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can eliminate or reduce hair growth in just about any area, including:
Upper lip and chin
What should I expect with laser hair removal?
The state-of-the-art system used at Injecting Confidence removes just about every type of hair on nearly every type of skin. Katie evaluates your skin type and hair density to give you the best assessment of how many sessions it will take for you to achieve your desired results. Most people achieve smooth skin within five to seven sessions.
A hair-removal session takes anywhere from five minutes to an hour, depending on the area or areas to be treated. During the treatment, you’ll feel tingling that’s like a rubber band snapping against your skin. You’ll also feel blasts of cool air coming from the device that help ease the intensity of the laser’s heat.
After your session, you can resume all of your normal activities. You may have slight redness or swelling in the treated areas, but this resolves quickly.
You will need to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for a few weeks following laser hair removal as the skin is temporarily extra sensitive.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Most people experience great results from laser hair removal, with 85-90% permanent hair reduction. In some cases, hormones can prompt the regrowth of hair, but these areas can be re-treated with success.
