Temporary measures for removing unwanted body hair all come with various costs and drawbacks. Whether you shave, wax, thread, use a depilatory cream or pluck it out, you are spending time and money to remove the same hair again and again, for decades. These methods also carry the risk of cuts, infections, chemical burns and scars. If you’re tired of paying to remove the same hairs again and again, laser hair removal at our office in Cincinnati may be a better choice for you.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Our hair grows in cycles, meaning that not all of our hair follicles are producing hair at the same time. The laser is calibrated to target the roots of your hair and heat them up, all while leaving your skin untouched. This damages the active hair follicles on a microscopic level. The hairs are unable to grow back due to the damage to the hair follicles. The treatment is then repeated when more hair follicles are active. After a series of treatments, the area will be completely smooth and hairless.
Making the Most of Your Treatments
Since the laser is calibrated to focus on the color of your hair roots, it’s best to receive treatments when there is a big contrast between the color of your hair and the color of your skin. For most people, the greatest contrast is when they are not tanned. You will also need to protect your skin from sun exposure for a set amount of time after each treatment, as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun.

The vast majority of people in Cincinnati tolerate laser hair removal quite well, but it is a procedure that isn’t right for every individual. That’s why it’s so important to consult with an expert before undergoing this treatment.
