Laser Hair Removal


Laser hair removal in Pensacola, FL: what is it, and how does it work? I


Despite being around since the middle of the 1990s, IPL hair removal is one of the most efficient methods for getting rid of unwanted hair and can be applied to almost any area of the body. As a result, its appeal to women of all ages has significantly grown in recent years. You need to be aware of a few things before making your hair removal appointments, even though IPL hair removal is a procedure that can be finished quickly and with little discomfort.

What is Laser hair removal?

IPL hair removal uses concentrated light energy to target the pigment known as melanin in the hair follicle and shaft. As a consequence of the melanin absorbing the laser’s radiation, heat is produced. The hair’s supporting structure becomes more fragile due to the heating energy, which damages and eventually destroys the hair shaft and bulb. This stops the afflicted area’s hair from growing new hair. 


The length of the therapy will depend on the size of the area that needs to be treated. Your hair removal process will typically only take 15 to 30 minutes, during which you need to remain in the salon. The treatment time is considerably longer when hair removal is done on larger areas of the body, like the legs or torso than when it is done on smaller areas, like the face. No recovery time is needed after these quick treatments, which are easily arranged during lunch or between appointments. 


Depending on the natural hair coarseness, color, and hair growth cycle of the treatment region, the required number of treatments will change to achieve permanent hair removal. On the other hand, permanent hair removal usually calls for six to eight sessions, separated by four to six weeks between each.


Therefore, starting your IPL hair removal procedures about three to four months before the event date is best if you want silky smooth legs. This will allow you plenty of time to finish all the treatments and get the desired outcomes. 

What to expect when having your first Laser hair removal treatment?

Before starting your first laser hair removal procedure, you might feel unpleasant and unsettling emotions when you hear the word “laser.” What is the reality? Most people have stated that they experienced minor pain as the laser-focused on their body hair. This is neither severe nor unbearable; it is only temporary. The analogy of crushing a rubber band on the palm of your hand is one of the most appropriate ones that can be used to describe it. You might feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation, but this sensation should pass quickly after each laser has focused on where the hair will be removed.


The good news is that laser hair removal will become less painful as you have more treatments. This is because your hair volume will decrease as you receive treatments, and each hair will become thinner. On the other hand, some individuals find that they make a little more sense if there is too much time between procedures.
