Shaving, waxing, or plucking is something that most of us have had to incorporate into our regular schedules. These methods can be effective in temporarily removing unwanted hair, but can also leave you plagued with painful ingrown hairs, rashes, or even nicks and cuts. That isn’t usually the look most are going for when trying to get rid of those strays or patches of hair that drive us crazy! There is another option for removing unwanted hair on the face or body, laser hair removal!
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. At Ridgeline Medical Aesthetics, our team specializes in performing laser hair removal using the Harmony XL PRO laser system. This innovative procedure uses groundbreaking technology to offer a simple, one-stop solution for truly effective hair removal!
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The Harmony XL PRO laser system is an innovative device with a gradual heating method to effectively damage the hair follicles while avoiding injury to the surrounding skin. The sweeping delivery technique keeps the laser in constant motion ensuring full coverage. Simultaneous contact cooling prevents burns and allows for a more comfortable treatment. This laser treatment helps the skin look and feel smoother while providing longer-lasting results compared to other options for hair removal.
How Much Does Laser Removal Cost?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that varies in cost based on the size of the treated area, plus how many treatment sessions you will need to attain a smooth result. To help put the cost of laser hair removal into perspective, estimate the time and energy you are putting into shaving, waxing, or other temporary hair removal methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is usually more cost-effective and can save you time and energy long-term. We will create a treatment plan for you with the number of appointments we suggest along with pricing.
How Many Treatments are Needed for Effective Laser Hair Removal?
Follicles grow in cycles. When some follicles are in a live growing phase, others are dormant. Because each follicle grows in a different stage, multiple sessions are recommended to target each hair follicle when it’s growing. Spreading out your sessions over a few weeks helps you get smoother results.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
The process of laser hair removal can cause some discomfort, but it isn’t considered a painful procedure. You will feel a small sting as the Harmony XL PRO handpiece zaps the hair follicle. Your technician can apply a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin before the treatment begins. Many people say that laser hair removal is more comfortable than a waxing session.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
While you can enjoy the results of the treatment for a long time, it is technically semi-permanent since some hair follicles may not be affected by the laser. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair follicles will be gone once their plan is done and if stray hairs are still growing, it is easier to deal with. More laser hair removal treatments can be performed to take care of stragglers or new growth.
