Are you tired of shaving? Whether it is your legs, armpits, bikini zone, etc. we understand that shaving and other hair removal modalities can be a pain. Luckily, advancements in technology have created a new and improved solution for hair removal. With the availability of laser hair removal at The Cosmetic Vein & Laser Center (CVLC), we hope that you will take the next step toward removing unwanted hair.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that utilizes a laser to remove unwanted hair. During your laser treatment at CVLC in Williamsville, a laser beam will pass through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it does not always guarantee hair removal. However, it will typically take several laser hair removal treatments in Williamsville to provide an extended hair-free period with periodic maintenance needed. On average, 5-8 laser hair removal treatments will be needed for maximum results. Each laser treatment at CVLC in Williamsville is performed once every 4-8 weeks, depending on the area of the body being treated.
Laser hair removal can help you eliminate unwanted hair in nearly any area. Some of the common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and the bikini line. The benefits of laser hair removal include:
Preparing for Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment in Williamsville
Laser hair removal at CVLC in Williamsville is a lot more than just the “zapping” of unwanted hair—it is a medical procedure that requires training to perform properly, as it can carry potential risks if not completed properly. Our physician assistant, Bridget Burruano, is extensively trained in laser hair removal and has performed safe and effective laser hair removal for over four years at CVLC. Before your laser treatment, remember to limit tweezing, waxing and electrolysis for at least six weeks before your treatment. By doing so, you will help the laser target the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. It is also important to avoid sun exposure as this can decrease the effectiveness of laser hair removal and increases the risk of complications during treatment.
If the hassle of repeated shaving, tweezing or waxing have become too much of a burden, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Contact our office in Williamsville for more information on laser hair removal and to see if you are a candidate for this laser treatment. Say goodbye to unwanted hair that leaves you with bumps, nicks, or burns and say hello to skin that is smooth without the need to remove hair every day.
