Choose Permanent Hair Removal in Kelowna for a Smoother Summer
As the Kelowna summer is nearly upon us, the time has come to shed our heavy winter garb in favour of shorts, t-shirts and swimwear. The warmth and the sunshine are a welcome change, but for some, the switch to lighter clothing also means a return to the pain and drudgery of waxing, plucking or shaving unwanted hair from the lips, armpits, legs, chest and back.
What if there was a better way to remove unwanted hair from the face and body? One that was not only less painful and time-consuming, but also offered a permanent hair removal solution? If you are ready to stop spending your time and money on short-term treatments to address unwanted hair, there is no better time to consider permanent hair removal with laser treatments at Cerulean Medical Institute in Kelowna, BC.
Does Kelowna Laser Treatment Really Offer Permanent Hair Removal?
Though the number of treatments required for permanent results will vary based on individual circumstances, the results of laser hair removal in our Kelowna skin care clinic are permanent. Multiple treatments are necessary because at any time a hair can be in one of three phases: growing, resting and transitional. It is only when a hair is in the growth phase that laser hair removal treatment is effective. Usually, our patients achieve permanent hair removal results after 4 to 6 treatments.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
In a process known as selective photo thermolysis, laser hair removal works by targeting and destroying the pigment in the bulb and hair shaft of the individual follicles. After damaging the follicle, as long as the hair was in the growth phase, it will fall out within two weeks of treatment and never grow back.
At Cerulean Medical Institute, we use the Alexandrite laser for hair removal in our clients with lighter skin, and the Nd:YAG laser to target the melanin in those with darker skin. Your Kelowna laser specialist will help you to determine the best course of treatment and can provide you with a reasonable estimate of how many treatments it may take to achieve permanent hair removal.
Is Permanent Hair Removal Possible on Any Part of the Body?
It is safe to use laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body. This includes the face, abdomen, chest, back, armpits and bikini area. Generally, the coarser the hair, the more treatments will be required to achieve permanent hair removal results. After an initial consultation, your laser hair removal specialist at Cerulean will provide a personalized treatment plan so you know what to expect.
