Many times, hair removal is time-consuming and leaves nicks and cuts. Laser hair removal is a very common, long-lasting procedure that offers an alternative to shaving, waxing and using depilatories. Central Wyoming Skin Clinic is a great choice in the Laramie, Gillette, or Casper, WY area for your hair removal needs.
What can I expect?
When you arrive at Central Wyoming Skin Clinic, expect professional service and education on caring for skin before, during, and after treatment.
Who can receive this treatment?
For a long time, this procedure has worked best on hair that grows dark against fair skin, as the laser is able to determine where the hair is easier.
This is because the machine often can not determine the difference between pigment in the skin and pigment in the hair follicle. However, if you have dark skin, new developments in laser technology have allowed for a more accurate determination of hair follicles, thereby allowing for a safer removal session.
Some considerations about laser hair removal are:
- If you are accustomed to daily shaving or plucking, you will need to stop while receiving treatment.
- Avoid heat and heat-inducing activities after the procedure.
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or going out without SPF.
- Most patients require two to six treatments.
- Don’t be afraid to ask questions about which lasers are used and why.
How long does it last?
Laser hair removal can last for months or even years at a time.
As the hair grows, there will be less of it following this quick procedure. Because it prevents future growth, there will be no more embarrassing hair to groom.
