3 Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

If you have unwanted hair, you’ve probably spent a lot of time and money trying to get rid of it. Shaving, waxing, and depilatories may be a part of your regular self-maintenance routine. But for a more permanent removal and reduction of hair, laser hair removal at Apex Dermatology Group in Littleton and Denver, CO may be a better option for you. Let’s take a look at the benefits.

1. Precision

Laser hair removal uses beams of concentrated light directed into the hair follicles to destroy the hair root. It targets the hair only which leaves the skin surrounding the hair undamaged. It’s great for treating large areas such as the legs or back because it quickly treats many hairs at once.

2. Effectiveness

After 3-5 treatments, 90% of people experience permanent hair reduction. The FDA has approved laser hair removal as a “permanent hair reduction” for its effectiveness at reducing and eliminating unwanted hair. If the hair does regrow, it tends to be thinner, lighter and less coarse than before the treatment. Apex Dermatology Group, with offices in Littleton and Denver, CO, offers laser hair removal using the Palomar StarLux Pulse Light and Laser System, as well as a diode laser for hair reduction. This system offers patients a cooling, comfortable, and highly effective hair removal experience.

3. Speed

Laser hair removal is performed at your dermatologist’s office in as little as fifteen minutes for smaller areas and approximately an hour for larger areas such as the leg or the back. With hair regrowth eliminated or dramatically reduced in as little as a few sessions, this method of hair removal saves time over traditional methods such as shaving and depilatory creams. There is no recovery time involved with laser hair removal and the treatment leaves behind no sticky residue like waxing might. Other hair removal methods such as waxing take an average of an hour per session and need to be performed every four to six weeks. For busy people, laser hair removal can be the most time-saving hair removal option.
