If you are the kind of person who is not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove your unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. The process is painless and simple. It works by sending beams of highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light which then destroys the hair.
Procedures involving laser technologies have become so sophisticated today, and they are now considered safe and effective in many treatment applications. Laser hair removal provides a number of benefits—most notably shorter procedure duration. Laser procedures send pulses of light that only take a fraction of a second to do the job. This proven technique also yields predictable results. Lasers are precise and are able to target exact regions needing the treatment, making them perfectly safe and reliable.
During the procedure, you and the NRG Lab technician will need to wear the appropriate eye protection, depending on the type of laser or light source used. The outer layers of your skin will also be protected with a cold gel or with the use of a special cooling device to help the laser light penetrate accurately, without harming other parts. The technician will then give a pulse of light to the treatment area, and then observe for a few minutes to make sure the correct settings were used and to check for any adverse reaction to the treatment.
With all the treatment areas treated and the procedure complete, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or cold water to help ease any discomfort you may experience. You can then schedule your next treatment session four to six weeks later, repeating as needed until hair stops growing.
