What Laser Hair Treatment Can Do For You
posted: Apr. 23, 2020.
Clearer, smoother skin and permanent hair reduction don't even begin to scratch the surface of laser hair removal benefits. Hair removal also reduces ingrown hairs and skin irritation. Dr. Sonya Campbell Johnson of Dermatology Associates in Indianapolis, Batesville, and Tipton, IN, offers patients laser hair removal instead of painful waxing, electrolysis, or shaving.
Permanent Laser Hair Removal
Women and men remove unwanted body hair to permanently reduce body hair. It's a quick and easy process that reduces hair loss for all skin types, year-round.
Laser hair removal targets hairs in the anagen phase because it contains melanin (pigment).
Hair cycles go through three phases:
- About 90% of the hairs are in the growing phase, anagen (growth) phase
- About 9% are in the resting phase, telogen (resting) phase
- About 1% are in the catagen (transition) phase
More about the Hair Removal System
Dr. Johnson offers Cutera CoolGlide in three locations: Indianapolis, Batesville, and Tipton. It's used for all skin types, light to dark-skinned patients. Cutera CoolGlide uses a longer wavelength and cooling for effective, safe, and permanent results.
Precautions Before and After Treatment
Avoid waxing or plucking hairs for two weeks before the procedure.
After treatment, rub the procedural area in a circular motion during bathing. Don't wax or pluck hair and avoid direct sunlight immediately after treatment.
Restrictions on Activities After Treatment
There are no restrictions, but people may experience some redness for a few minutes to several days depending on the area treated.
How many treatments will I need?
It varies from one person to another, depending on your skin, hair color, the coarseness of the hair, and density per treated area. People may end up needing 3-to-6 treatments.
