Waxing hurts; so does plucking. Shaving takes time. All three come with the daily inconvenience of stubble, missed spots, ingrown hairs and irritation – not to mention cuts, red bumps or razor burn.
Laser hair removal presents an alternative, keeping your skin smooth without the constant work of having to maintain it. It does so by permanently reducing the volume of hair re-growth on your body.
I had my underarms done, and I noticed a side benefit; NO BUMPS! I had no idea how badly those razors treated my skin. This is a must-do treatment!
Where can I have hair removed?
Treatments can be performed anywhere you like (except eyes). Laser hair reduction is a great investment in the overall look of your body. You may need anywhere between 5-10 treatments depending on the area of the body and the color of your hair.
How does laser hair reduction work?
At Aesthetic Center of Lubbock, we use the Sciton BBL Intense Pulsed Light system. During laser hair removal treatment, light passes through the skin’s surface, where it’s absorbed by a pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle and converted into heat. This heat damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth, without harming any surrounding tissue.
