Laser Hair Removal NYC

Most men and women struggle to remove unwanted hairs. Although everyone has a different understanding of beauty, most of today’s society is obsessed with shaving, tweezing, or waxing unwanted hairs. These traditional hair removal techniques can help a person stay hair free for a couple of days or a week, but they don’t offer a permanent solution. What if we told you there was a better approach? At Spark Laser Center, our expertise in laser hair removal offers an alternate and permanent solution without downtime.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal has been a constantly growing industry since it began, as it saves men and women time, and means they don’t have to deal with annoying regrowth, hot wax, or itching from improper shaving. Laser hair removal is an excellent way to achieve silky smooth, hairless skin.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Laser Hair Removal?

At Spark Laser Center, we treat all skin types. The treatment is ideal for individuals who are struggling with excess hair, and wish to solve the issue without undergoing painful procedures. Laser Hair Removal can be used on almost every area of the body. Common treatment areas include:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Bikini/Brazillian
  • Cheeks
  • Underarms
  • Chin
  • Areola
  • Back
  • Stomach
  • Neck

Hair growth cycles are hard to keep track of, and hair in different parts of the body grows differently. For areas with mostly coarse, dark hairs such as the bikini area, laser hair removal is the most effective. The most difficult treatment areas are the smaller, lighter hairs, similar to peach-fuzz. Because they are so light, the lasers simply may not notice them as the laser is created to track color differences. It is important to schedule your consultation with Spark Laser Center to go over your areas of concerns and access the hair growth in those areas.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal treatments target hair stem cells through pulses of energy that pass through the skin. The laser is designed to destroy hair follicles while ensuring minimal discomfort. It is possible for one to feel less pain because of the cryogen blasts superior cooling effect. One can expect the procedure to last for several minutes.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

The pulse of each laser typically feels like a snap of a rubber band. Although this can be uncomfortable on certain areas of the body, the treatment is not considered painful. One may need to commit to a series of treatments so that the unwanted hairs can be completely removed. The average timeframe is between two and three weeks. Most clients, however, have seen some results in the first treatment itself. As your treatment progresses, fewer and fewer hairs are expected to return; this way, one knows that she is on the right track.

How Many Laser Treatments Will I Need to See Results?

The biggest factor in determining the number of treatments needed is the hair growth cycle. In most cases after a patient’s first treatment, depending upon the areas, they may be hair free for months, to even a year. But in other neighboring areas of the body, the hair growth cycle may be different, and the hair may come back much sooner.

The truth about laser hair removal is that it can be permanent, but it will almost always take a number of treatments. After each treatment, depending upon the area, the root of the hair follicle undergoes a certain amount of destruction. After each successive treatment, that hair follicle will become smaller and smaller and take longer and longer to come back. After repeated treatments, the hair follicle can be destroyed completely, and the hair may never return in that area for the patient’s entire lifetime!

Is There Any Downtime After Laser Hair Removal?

After the procedure, our patients are advised to avoid heat and sun. Patients should avoid participating in intense physical activities for at least 24 hours and avoid entering a sauna. Harsh products and exfoliating treatments can be used one week after treatment.
