Are you thinking of getting laser hair removal in Saskatoon? Laser hair removal is an amazing service and can make such a huge difference for individuals who are best-suited for it. However, it is important to make sure you are a good candidate and sticking to a proper schedule in order for it to work as well as possible. Read on to learn more about our Saskatoon laser hair removal services and who they are best suited for.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that is done by using a beam of light to remove unwanted hair. The laser emits a light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and then transforms this light into heat. This heat then damages the hair follicles that produce the hair. This process must be done while the hair is in the anagen phase, which is the phase where the hair is still actively growing. Hair in the telogen and catagen phase are less pigmented and therefore will have less success, thus why multiple treatments are needed.
How many laser treatments will I need?
It is impossible to say exactly how many laser treatments an individual will need. This is based on a variety of factors and can also depend on the level of pigmentation to your hair and skin. Laser hair removal works best on people who are fair skinned and have dark hair. The average number of treatments needed is about five. This is an estimate and may vary depending on individual factors.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
The best candidates for laser hair removal, as stated above are light-skinned individuals with dark hair. Additionally, good results have been seen on darker skinned candidates, a spot test is recommended before investing in a package for the se people. The best way to decide whether or not you are a good candidate for laser hair removal is to book an appointment with one of our certified laser technicians. These appointments are free of cost and they can help you decide if laser hair removal is the best option for you. If, at this time, laser is not a good choice for you, they can also help you decide between out other amazing hair removal methods, such as waxing, sugaring, and threading, which also reduce hair regrowth overtime.
What areas can I get laser hair removal done on?
Laser hair removal is very versatile and can be done on most body parts. Laser should be avoided around the eye area but can be done on every other part of the body where hair grows.
Is laser permanent?
Laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent. It removes between 80-90% of hairs, though there will always be a small amount of regrowth. You may get another treatment as a touch-up to remove these last stubborn hairs. It is also recommended to try sugaring or waxing after you finish a series of laser treatments to further reduce the small leftover amount of hairs that are present.
