Many of us have experienced unwanted hair growth at some point and worked hard to take advantage of that harmful hair. So far, the weapons in the fight against unwanted hair have been rudimentary – burning candles, tweezers, and sharp knives – but fortunately, with the latest technology, things are turning in our favor.
For those who are tired of grappling with the tedious and short-lived act of shaving or going through the excruciating pain of plucking and waxing, there are other options. You can go for the treatment of laser hair removal in Honolulu.
Since the mid-1990s, laser hair removal has been a long-term, non-invasive procedure that targets unwanted hair by using a highly concentrated beam of light to permanently remove melanin, a dark substance found in hair follicles. Through this process, the laser effectively removes the melanin in the hair without damaging the surrounding skin, making it highly effective.
Dermatologists emphasize that laser hair removal does not remove all hair from the treated area, but should be considered a hair reduction process. Doctors also emphasize that most procedures should be performed by a professional to avoid accidental skin damage such as sunburn, scabs, infection, and white spots.
After thoroughly studying your preferred doctor's references, make an appointment and start pre-procedure. Most patients are not allowed to wax or pluck for 6 weeks prior to treatment, which gives hair follicles time to develop and become easy targets for the laser. Patients should also avoid direct sunlight for 6 weeks before and after the procedure as it is known to cause complications and resist laser treatment.
