Tired of plucking chin hairs? Does the need to consistently shave your legs drive you crazy on a daily basis? Maybe you’re just sick of all the hair and want it gone?
Laser hair removal for all skin types in Temecula, California, is the solution. It’s time to free yourself from the hassle of removing unwanted hair on your own, as it does safely work for dark skin!
Why Is Laser Hair Removal Now Safe for Everyone?
Melanin in hair follicles absorbs light energy from the laser. That energy then converts to heat to damage or destroy the follicle to inhibit hair growth.
The first generation of lasers was unable to distinguish between the melanin in the skin and in the hair follicle. This meant treatment was only suited for patients with contrasting light skin and dark hair, because it was easy to find the hair root.
Now, thank goodness, lasers are much more advanced! Nd:YAG and diode lasers are smarter than the “old school” lasers and are able to distinguish between skin cells and hair follicles, making this a safe treatment for everyone including patients with dark skin.
Are There Side Effects Associated With Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal (LHR) does have side effects, but they are usually minor and easily manageable. You can expect to see redness and swelling.
You might also notice a bit of discomfort. These go away on their own rather quickly, usually within hours. Talk to your laser specialist about risks before proceeding with treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal for all skin types in Temecula, California is suitable for almost anyone who wants to safely and effectively remove hair. It can be done on a specific area or all over your body.
While this is a decision to be made with your provider, those who should not have LHR include anyone who:
- Is pregnant
- Is prone to cold sores and / or has genital herpes
- Has keloid scars
- Takes certain acne medications
- Currently has skin cancer, though you may be eligible if you had it in the past
