Many people think of laser hair removal as a great solution for unwanted leg hair, but they assume they need to look for alternative methods to remove hair in other areas.
At Kingsway Medispa & Wellness Center, in Midwood, Brooklyn, New York, our team of highly trained aesthetics medicine specialists offer laser hair removal that can help you eliminate unwanted hair virtually anywhere on your body — even in the most sensitive areas. Today we’re discussing all the areas laser hair removal can treat, how you prep for the treatment, and how the process works.
Laser hair removal is known for removing leg hair, but it also treats other areas including:
In fact, laser hair removal can effectively target and remove unwanted hair practically anywhere.
If you’re feeling self-conscious about unwanted hair in a certain area, you can rest easy. Our team of caring providers have expertly removed hair in nearly every part of the human body using laser hair removal, so don’t hesitate to ask us about your areas of concern.
Before your first laser hair removal appointment, our team gives you some guidelines to follow. This helps ensure you have a comfortable experience and get the results you want as soon as possible.
We generally instruct patients to shave the entire treatment area before treatment. Stubble can lead to overheating and pigmentation issues. Don’t wax or pluck, as that removes the hair root that we need to target during treatment.
We also recommend avoiding the sun for a few weeks ahead of time. If you’re tanned or burned, the laser could cause some pigmentation issues.
You might feel a little nervous about laser hair removal the first time, especially if the treatment involves a sensitive area like the bikini line. Not to worry: Our team of experts makes sure that you have a comfortable experience.
You’ll wear eye protection during the treatment, and our team helps you relax in a good position for the treatment. During treatment, the laser “fires” pulses that go into the hair root.
You’ll feel a quick zap when this happens, but it’s very well tolerated by most people. We understand that certain areas, like the bikini area, can be especially sensitive, so a topical numbing cream is available to prevent discomfort.
Treatment usually takes only 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. We provide post treatment instructions, like continuing to stay out of the sun and avoiding abrasive product use on the newly treated skin.
Your body hair grows in cycles, and all the hair isn’t in the same cycle at the same time. So, staggered appointments allow us to treat all your hair during the right cycle (the growth phase), ultimately giving you silky smooth skin after a series of treatments.
Shaving, waxing, and messy hair removal creams are all inconvenient, frustrating, and quite expensive over a lifetime. Laser hair removal is an investment that can give you smooth skin permanently, freeing you up to spend time and energy on the things that matter most.
If you’re interested in laser hair removal, no matter where you have unwanted hair, we can help.
