During the summer months, many people look for ways to remove unwanted facial and body hair. With more skin exposed by wearing shorts, sleeveless tops, and bathing suits, many women opt for hair removal that lasts longer than shaving, and many men look for permanent hair removal from places like backs, necks, and shoulders.
Hair can grow at different rates on different parts of the body, and most people need anywhere from six to ten laser hair removal sessions to receive optimal results. Although it is not necessary to completely avoid or stop laser hair removal during the summer months, you may want to plan ahead. It is best to avoid direct sunlight for two weeks prior to a laser hair removal treatment as well as two weeks post treatment to avoid possible complications like blistering and a change in skin pigmentation. Regular use of sunscreen with SPF30 or more and daily moisturizing is beneficial, and the application of topical vitamin E oil may also help protect your skin from damage.
Denver Vein Center offers laser hair removal services for both men and women. The number of treatments you will require will vary, depending on the thickness of your hair and its growth cycle, as well as the area or areas that are treated. With the latest in 21st century laser hair removal technology like the GoolGlide and ProWave Laser Systems, we are able to treat large areas quickly and efficiently all over the body, including legs, arms, neck, underarms, and back.
Other areas that can be treated for permanent hair reduction include the face, chest, nipples, and bikini line. The benefits of these systems include the safe and effective treatment of those with light, dark, or tanned skin, and are rapidly becoming the most popular method of hair removal, in part due to the lack of pain medication required.
