One of the biggest complaints from most women we hear at Goals is unwanted leg and body hair. especially with the summer months approaching fast, every woman wants to make sure their legs are smooth and ready for their summer wardrobe. And while most women tend to shave or wax, that leads to heavily irritated red blotches, peeling skin, and even bruising at times. At Goals Plastic Surgery, we are known for the best laser hair removal NYC has to offer. Laser hair removal is a huge part of the aesthetics industry, as more and more women are seeking a means of permanent to semi-permanent hair removal. That brings up the number one question we are asked at Goals in regard to laser hair removal, is it permanent? Even the best plastic surgeon NYC has in practice, Dr. V, cant answer that question with a simple answer. For the most part, no laser hair removal is not permanent, however, with the right number of treatments, use of quality lasers, and having experienced staff, like the experts at Goals Aesthetics, laser hair removal can definitely be permanent. There are definitely a few caveats and helpful hints a patient should know before expecting permanent laser hair removal.
Patience is Key: It Takes More Than One Treatment
At Goals Plastic Surgery, and most other plastic surgeons NYC has in practice, laser hair removal is the preferred method of hair removal. Lasers use a concentrated light energy to penetrate below the skin’s surface, targeting and eliminating hair follicles at the base so as to prevent fast regrowth. The only issue with this is that after a number of weeks or months the hair follicles eventually regrow. As a result, the experts at Goals recommend patients repeat the treatment anywhere from 4 to 8 separate times, and space each treatment out by 4-6 weeks. This is done because our hair follicles are all on different growth cycles, therefore hair growth isn’t always on the same schedule. After the first 3 treatments or so, you should begin to see a huge difference, and after the full 4-8 sessions, your hair follicles will be permanently damaged.
Dark Hair Works Better Than Light Hair
Lasers often work by targeting pigment, or the color, within the hair follicles, against an opposing backdrop of the skin’s pigment. Therefore, most lasers work best on darker hairs on a person with fair skin. However, at Goals Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, we use the newest and most sophisticated lasers, that operate on a broad-spectrum of wavelengths, and therefore work well with any skin tone. There’s a reason we are known for the best laser hair removal NYC has to offer. But as a general rule, the darker an individuals hair color, the fewer number of treatments are needed for permanent hair removal.
Avoid Over-Exposure to The Sun
At Goals we advise all of our patients to avoid too much sunlight, as it can have adverse effects on your skin. This is especially true before or after a laser hair removal treatment. Toomuch sun can cause the area to become irritated, and prevent the lasers from destroying the hair follicles permanently.
Quick and Painless
Depending upon the size of the area at Goals Plastic Surgery, we can complete an entire session in under 20 minutes. While larger areas may take closer to an hour. At Goals the procedure is also relatively pain-free. Despite the heat emitted from the lasers, our high-tech lasers are equipped with a self-cooling mechanism that cools, and sooths the skin as it emits laser energy. Patents may feel a light pinch, especially in sensitive areas such as the face and around the genitals, more likely after a few sessions.
Side Effects are Temporary
Patients may experience mild side effects, especially after a few repeated sessions. Mild swelling, slight redness, and temporary skin irritation are common with permanent laser hair removal, however, they will usually disappear within a few hours or days.
