Laser Hair Removal
Soft, smooth and youthful looking skin can sometimes appear unsightly due to growth of unwanted hair. Such hair may emerge on various exposed and unexposed parts of the body in both men and women. Some of the common areas that are affected in terms of aesthetic appearance due to such hair growth are the face, arms, legs, back, and the bikini area.
People who are unhappy with such unwanted body hair may have them removed through advanced laser hair removal procedure at a reputed medical spa. Gentle Touch Aesthetics, led by Dr. Arbella Sarkis and Dr. Esther Chen, is a state of the art med spa providing laser hair removal treatments. Gentle Touch Aesthetics receives patients from Los Gatos, Saratoga, Campbell, CA, and surrounding communities for this treatment.
Who is a Fantastic Candidate?
People who are dissatisfied with conventional hair removal treatments such as shaving, tweezing or waxing, and are looking for long-term relief from unwanted hair, may consider laser hair removal procedure. The ideal candidate for laser based hair removal solutions are women and men with darker hair and lighter skin.
The laser light beam will be absorbed by the pigmentation precisely in such patients, without causing any damage to the surrounding healthy skin. Laser experts at Gentle Touch Aesthetics medical spa provide this treatment to patients in Los Gatos, Saratoga, Campbell, CA, and other locations.
Laser hair removal procedure should be performed only by an experienced treatment provider at a recognized med spa. The treatment provider will administer the laser beam through a laser tip in a targeted manner. The laser tip will be placed directly over the marked area. As the laser energy penetrates through the top layers of the skin, it will get absorbed by the follicle pigment. This will weaken the targeted hair from its root, and lead to its gradual complete removal from the skin.
Laser hair removal procedure does not involve any significant pain or discomfort. However, the treatment expert may use a topical anesthetic to keep the patient comfortable. Best results can be achieved in most cases with multiple treatment sessions. The treatment provider will determine the number of treatments needed for a particular patient according to the location, type, density, and color of hair and the pattern of hair growth.
Laser hair removal has become an increasingly popular procedure in comparison to traditional solutions. The key benefit is that the results are more sustainable and long-term with laser treatment. In terms of aesthetics, the results are more even and smooth. Frequent repetition of treatments is avoided, which preserves the skin in a better way over time.
Precision in laser hair removal is another major advantage. The targeted laser beam will only impact the unwanted hair follicle, without causing any harm to the surrounding healthy tissue. The treatment is ideal also for busy or working people because it does not involve any specific recovery period or downtime. Risk of side effects is negligible. However, patients will be required to avoid direct sun exposure, and use sunscreen for several weeks following the laser hair removal treatment.
