Body hair is often challenging to get rid of and can have a negative impact on self-esteem. There are many traditional hair removal options available—including shaving, waxing, tweezing, and threading—but these often won’t give you the results you want. Some of the laser hair treatments from our Denver-area practice include the newest in laser hair reduction and removal technology.
The BAREit (by Sciton) laser is more effective per session and is fast. Each treatment is almost as fast as shaving and has minimal discomfort. This laser is more powerful than other forms of laser hair reduction and has been shown to provide improvement right after the first session. With revolutionary blended wavelength laser technology, this laser significantly reduces hair from any skin tone, and it can be done year-round. Advanced cooling technology means no topical anaesthesia is needed. As with all laser hair removal devices, multiple treatments will be necessary to reduce follicles, since results depend on the body’s normal hair growth cycle.
Here are some other benefits of laser treatments for hair removal at AboutSkin Dermatology:
1. It Can Address Hair That’s Almost Anywhere
Removing unwanted hair on areas such as the legs, armpits, face, and other parts of the body with razors can be a nuisance. Laser hair removal techniques are a proven method for removing hair from almost anywhere on the body.
2. It Helps to Quickly Get Rid of Ingrown Hairs
Laser hair removal does more than just get rid of the unwanted strands of hair; it also helps with ingrown hairs, which are hairs that grow “backward” into the skin instead of out of the surface. These can develop after you shave or tweeze, resulting in symptoms such as inflammation, bumps, and hyperpigmentation. Laser hair removal doesn’t trim a hair down or pull it out by its roots. It prevents hairs from growing by damaging the follicle itself.
3. It Provides Long-Lasting Results
Laser hair removal is considered to be a long-term hair removal option with results that can last for years and most often be lasting reduction of hair. The hair that can regrow from a “lasered-follicle” is often thinner and lighter in color compared to how it was before the treatment. At the very least, the technique prevents hairs from growing back for a longer time compared to tweezing, waxing, and shaving.
4. It Is Typically Well Tolerated
Some people may be intimidated by lasers and assume that a light-based treatment will be painful, but patients often express that they only experience mild discomfort that is over quickly. The BAREit laser has a very effective cooling device to minimize discomfort and cool the skin.
