Nobody wants unattractive hairs to put a damper on their fun this summer, but maintaining a regiment every day only to be left with the pains of ingrown hairs, cuts, and razor burn is something you could probably do without. Now you can put the razors, tweezers, and waxes away and finally do something about those pesky hairs for good, with laser hair removal at Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center.
Smooth Skin this Summer
There’s still plenty of time to get rid of those unwanted hairs before your big summer vacation, and now is the best time to start a series of sessions to banish them. Our knowledgeable team will take all the necessary time to discuss the appropriate approach based on your skin type, goals, and the area that you’d like to pinpoint.
Guys and Dolls
It’s not just the ladies who are opting for treatments to remove stray hairs – more and more men are also getting in on laser hair removal. In fact, it continues to be the second-most popular cosmetic procedure among guys, finishing only behind anti-aging injectables like Botox® in popularity. It’s a trend that we’re seeing here in our Mechanicsburg offices, too. Men in Pennsylvania are realizing that they can boost their confidence by looking their absolute best with a just little help from all the incredible innovations the cosmetic industry has to offer.
Target the Big or Small
Laser hair removal with Dr. Farrell can address unsightly hairs all over the body. You can hit bigger areas like the legs or back, or smaller spots like the underarms or a random patch of hairs. Of course, the larger the targeted area, the longer the treatment times—but it’s worth it!
Ready, Set, Zap!
Now that you’re ready to go ahead with a more permanent solution to all the hair madness, there are just a few things to keep in mind while you’re prepping for your laser treatment. You should avoid plucking, waxing, or electrolysis in the weeks leading up to your session. Those removal methods tend to target hairs at the root and won’t give the laser anything to hone in on. It’s also a good idea to avoid direct sun exposure. As with any procedure, even the non-invasive ones that are quick and easy, it’s always best to be in good health and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
A Series of Treatments
The most effective way to ensure that you’ll be permanently hair-free is with a series of laser sessions. Dr. Farrell may suggest multiple treatments spread out over the course of several months in order to achieve your ideal outcome. That’s because your hair grows in cycles—not at the same rate or the same time. In fact, there are three stages to hair growth: the anagen, which is the optimal period for laser removal, the catagen, and the telogen phases. So if a random stray hair pops up in the middle of your treated area, don’t sweat it – the hair just wasn’t in the right stage yet.
