3 Wonderful Benefits of Laser Hair Removal – Columbus OH

Laser Hair Removal at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery

Are you bothered by unwanted hair sprouting on several areas of your body? Shaving, tweezing, waxing, and depilatory creams can help you zap excessive hair. However, these solutions are temporary, painful, expensive, and sometimes messy. A different form of hair removal offers a permanent answer to undesired hair with the use of laser. To eliminate hair, the laser emits energy that passes through skin up to the hair follicle. The energy is then absorbed by the hair follicle, destroying it so hair cannot grow again. There are several benefits of laser hair removal that make it a viable choice for both men & women who want to get rid of unwanted hair.

It causes minimal to no discomfort.

Patients who have gone through treatment attest that the sensation is comparable to the light snap of a rubber band.  If desired, numbing cream can be used.  Very minimal redness or swelling may appear on the site, but typically subsides 24 hours after treatment.  Most of our laser hair removal clients say the pain is considerably lesser compared to the discomfort felt in waxing.

It is convenient.

Only a small amount of time is needed to treat large areas since light beams move quickly. Results will be evident after 4-6 treatments depending on hair color and skin tone. The patient can go back to normal activities right away. On the other hand, other forms of hair removal like shaving, plucking, and waxing are time-consuming and have to be done repeatedly.

It is effective.

It is more efficient than tweezing or shaving. It also offers permanent hair reduction results. Statistics shows that approximately 60-95% of targeted hair is removed. In the event that hair grows back, it will not happen until a few months after treatment. And when it does, hair will have a lighter texture and appearance.

To learn more about the procedure, consult a laser hair removal specialist from Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery with locations in Columbus and Upper Arlington, Ohio.  Our laser hair nurses have extensive knowledge and training in laser hair removal. If you are interested in laser hair removal, schedule a consultation and find out how you can address your problem with unwanted hair and forget about shaving, plucking, and waxing perpetually.
