Chasing smooth skin is an ongoing struggle. If you choose to shave, you find yourself investing time daily with the very real risk of painful nicks when you’re rushed for time or sensitive patches when your razor starts to dull. The routine proves frustrating as 24-hours later you can feel the new growth. Spa Noor in Fall River, MA offers a real solution with their laser hair removal: a trusted and effective option to deal with unwanted hair.
When weighing the variety of other options, words like sticky, painful, and short-lived come to mind. Options from waxing and threading to hair removal creams often have more negatives than positives. With advancements over the last two decades, lasers are now the most popular treatment nationwide for cosmetic improvement. With all the demands of life, it is vital to find ways to reveal your natural beauty that address real concerns of time, longevity, and convenience.
Get to Know Laser Hair Removal
As you consider your first treatment, you need to get acquainted with the process, practitioners, and results to know what to expect. As we outline the basics, be sure to keep your questions in mind, as we are poised to delve into your unique skin concerns in a safe and welcoming environment whenever you are ready to schedule an initial consultation.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
The treatment uses lasers to slow the growth capacity of hair follicles that are present at the time of your treatment. Hair follicles are always growing across much of your skin. Removing those follicles with a laser lets you enjoy smooth skin for longer.
Since your hair has a growth cycle, some follicles may not be in the growth cycle until after your first treatment. Starting with a 6-treatment package is a safe and smart initial approach.
What Does a Treatment Do?
Through a laser, light travels through the pigment of hair follicles, heating it and reducing its capacity for growth. Addressing the tunnel of cells down to the dermis, the treatment safely and effectively reaches the root of hair growth. Your hair is generally darker than your skin tone, so the laser targets the hair without damaging your skin.
There are three stages of hair growth: the growing stage, intermediate stage, and shedding stage. Your hair rotates through stages with some follicles entering the growing stage while others are in the intermediate stage, etc. Because the hair needs to be targeted in the growing stage, you will need multiple treatments to address all follicles at the right time and help you achieve the optimal results.
How Does It Feel?
Typically, clients report a tingling sensation as the laser is administered. The feel is compared to a small pin-prick. If you wax or thread, this prick is generally much milder and less offensive.
What Areas Can I Treat?
Virtually any area you want to target can be addressed through the treatment, from facial hair like eyebrows and upper lips to the abdomen, underarm, back, or full legs. With strides in the field, the lasers can address unwanted hair across the entire body. Treatments are effective and beneficial for men and women.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Keeping several factors in mind, the number of treatments will vary according to your unique physical makeup and your goals for hair removal. Here are the main points that will determine the number of treatments:
- Target area (legs and thighs versus facial hair)
- Hair density
- The growth cycle of your hair
Packages of laser hair removal are a long-term investment that greatly outweighs spending time and money on other regular routines that truly are never-ending. Over time, you maintain smoother skin longer and without the pain and frustration of more tedious options like shaving and waxing.
Does It Work on All Skin Tones and Colors of Hair?
While older technologies didn’t effectively treat darker skin tones or lighter hair, laser hair removal has evolved incredibly since it’s initial FDA approval in 1997. Developments in the field give us access to lasers that effectively help individuals of all skin tones and hair colors.
How Long Does a Treatment Last?
Treatment time can be minutes for small targets like the underarm or facial areas. Larger areas, like the thigh and leg area, may take up to an hour or more. Treatments are relatively short and can be scheduled around your availability.
When Will I See the Benefits?
While the results get better with each treatment, the first treatment typically reveals results several weeks later. Keeping up with regular appointments and sticking with a package plan is the best approach. The long-term effects are impressive, so setting realistic short-term expectations is vital to helping you consistently keep to your schedule so you can reach the optimum outcome.
How Do I Prepare?
One tip: clean skin is best, so you’ll be asked to remove makeup from your facial area for the best results. You will be walked through any dos and don’ts of preparation by your knowledgeable practitioner to ensure the most effective treatment. At Spa Noor, our years of experience, calming setting, and intimate team of medical professionals prioritize your safety and comfort.
Get to Know a Practitioner
When you’re picking your practitioner, it is vital that you know you’re in good hands. The small team of medical professionals at Spa Noor has specialized in cosmetic beauty treatments like laser hair removal for years.
We base our treatments on industry leaders in development and manufacturing, Cynosure and Sciton BBL, to offer a wide variety of aesthetic laser and medical treatment systems. Ongoing training ensures a high standard of quality in each of our treatments. Intensive research goes into reviewing studies as we consider any innovations or additions to our portfolio. As you visit any practitioner, we recommend several steps to ensure excellence in service and care.
Ask to see the certification of your practitioner, including proof of their tenure in laser. Ask questions like, ‘How often do you train?’ and ‘Over how many years have you practiced laser?’ With a treatment that radically impacts your appearance, you only want to work with experienced professionals.
Ask for before and after photos that demonstrate the work of the practice. Teams that help their clients achieve powerful results will not hesitate to share photos of satisfied patients.
First, share Your skin concerns. Write down your goals and the areas you want to address so you can hear how they might help you at your initial consultation. Good practitioners will not oversell, overpromise, or pressure you. The team at Spa Noor is dedicated to partnering with you to enhance your natural beauty for years to come. We will clearly explain what we can do, what you can expect, and set realistic expectations and timelines.
Next, review their atmosphere and offerings. You want a partner to work with you in achieving your health and wellness goals long-term. At our Medical Spa and Laser Centre, we do not work on commission. Our team will never over-sell but will consider with you each option for treatment to build a package that best addresses your combined needs including desired outcomes, budget, and scheduling. The spa’s personable, welcoming atmosphere is the perfect place to get comfortable with treatments you’re considering and get your questions answered.
Get to Know the Results
This long-term investment has proven benefits that powerfully address the issue of unwanted hair. However, the treatment effects more than your body and your appearance. Drastic results delivering smooth skin can boost your confidence while addressing long-time appearance concerns.
For clients with minor skin concerns, the treatment eliminates the ongoing maintenance of daily shaving or regular waxing. Laser helps with the upkeep of smooth skin for exponentially longer periods, up to permanent removal. For those with more serious skin concerns, the dramatic outcomes translate into profound change. Smooth skin empowers an individual to live with newfound confidence, allowing their natural beauty to shine through where before it may have been hidden.
Savings of Time and Stress
Across the US, laser hair removal is currently the most popular cosmetic treatment addressing the common need to remove body hair without constant maintenance. For those who have struggled with unwanted hair, lasering offers a compelling solution. Revealing and enhancing your natural beauty can have incredible emotional and social benefits in your daily life.
This proven treatment deals with unwanted body hair, allowing you to thin hair and reduce its growth capacity. In some cases, the process permanently stops hair growth. Some hair growth can be noticed months after treatment ends, but the difference in density and texture will be noticeable. You may want to schedule a maintenance treatment to address the now thin and light hair, but consult a dermatologist for the best plan. We’ll guide you with details on the safest time to schedule a maintenance appointment.
