Laser Hair Removal: Say Goodbye to Shaving, Waxing, & Plucking
Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that offers a long-lasting solution for your unwanted hair. This non-invasive treatment uses concentrated beams of light to target your hair follicles, effectively damaging them and preventing future hair growth.
Laser hair removal is suitable for various areas of your body, and Dr. Del Campo or Dr. Danny can customize the treatment to fit your unique needs.
With its precision and efficiency, laser hair removal offers a convenient alternative to traditional methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking. So say goodbye to the hassle of constant hair removal — and embrace smooth, silky skin with laser hair removal.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of energy to remove unwanted hair. During treatment, Dr. Del Campo or Dr. Danny uses a handheld device, or laser, to target the hair follicles in the treatment area. The laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, heating and destroying it to prevent the hair from growing back.
The length of each session will depend on the size of the treatment area, but most sessions take between 15 minutes to an hour. to deliver a beam of light to the targeted area.
Types of Laser Hair Removal Treatments
At Chicago Skin Clinic, Dr. Del Campo and Dr. Danny use the following types of laser treatments to remove your unwanted hair:
- Candela GentleLASE: This premium hair removal laser offers precise, non-invasive treatment of excessive hair with high energy, extended pulse operations, as well as an integrated Dynamic Cooling Device for improved comfort.
- Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD): This state-of-the-art, patented system selectively cools the upper layers of your skin just before the laser energy pulse is applied, minimizing any discomfort caused by heat emitted from the laser.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
If you’re looking for a hair removal treatment that’s longer-lasting and less of a hassle than traditional methods, laser hair removal can offer you several desirable benefits, including:
Permanent Hair Reduction
Laser hair removal can provide long-lasting results, with many patients experiencing a significant reduction in hair growth after just a few sessions. Some patients even achieve permanent hair removal after completing their treatment sessions.
No More Shaving or Waxing
Laser hair removal can eliminate the need for shaving or waxing, which can be time-consuming and painful. This can save you time and money in the long run.
Improved Skin Texture
Shaving and waxing can irritate your skin and cause ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal, however, can help improve skin texture in the treated area, leaving you with smooth, silky skin.
Larger Treatment Areas
Laser hair removal can treat larger areas of the body than other methods, so you can easily remove unwanted hair from your legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and other areas.
Is Laser Hair Removal Right For You?
Laser hair removal is safe and effective for most people. However, it may not be suitable for everyone. The best candidates for laser hair removal are:
People with Dark, Coarse Hair
Laser hair removal works best on dark, coarse hair because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle. Lighter hair may not respond as well to laser hair removal.
People with Lighter Skin
Laser hair removal works best on people with lighter skin tones. Since the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, people with darker skin may have a higher risk of complications, such as hyperpigmentation or discoloration. However, advances in laser technology have made it possible for individuals with darker skin types to undergo laser hair removal as well safely.
Those Who Are Not Pregnant or Breastfeeding
Laser hair removal is generally not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding individuals, as the safety of the procedure during pregnancy or breastfeeding has not been established.
People Who Are Committed to the Treatment Process
Laser hair removal requires multiple treatment sessions over several weeks or months. It's important to be committed to the treatment process to achieve the best results.
