Both men and women spend over one month of their lives shaving or performing other hair removal procedures. Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care can help you achieve hair reduction with our state of the art laser technology. The 755nm Alexandrite is ideal for lighter skin tones while the YAG laser is the only safe solution for hair reduction in those with darker skin tones. We offer only the best and safest laser hair reduction technology so you can get results you’ll love quickly and comfortably.
By the time most clients book their hair reduction treatment, they’ve been thinking about it for a long time. Over a month of your life is a lot to give up. That’s 30+ days of around the clock shaving, waxing, sugaring, tweezing, bleaching, and performing every other hair reduction treatment you may have tried. Time is the most precious commodity we have—laser hair reduction can give it back to you.
What to Expect with Laser Hair Reduction
Everyone responds a little differently to laser hair reduction. That’s why we carry a suite of lasers that are proven to be effective for different skin tones. You can use laser hair reduction anywhere on your body including the face, limbs, back, chest, and groin area. One of the first questions clients ask is whether laser hair reduction hurts, and it certainly doesn’t have to. Most clients describe the sensation as a snap of a rubber band—but that’s only if they don’t request numbing cream or Pro-Nox.
If you tried laser hair reduction in the past and couldn’t stand the discomfort, you haven’t experienced it at Palo Alto Laser and Skin Center. The latest technology is designed to be faster and much more comfortable than technology of the past. Plus, your comfort is our top priority. You can request Pro-Nox for any treatment, including laser hair reduction. This is a blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide that you’re in complete control over. It’s a great option for those with sensitive skin or anyone who simply wants to make their treatments as comfortable as it can be.
Will all the Hair Go Away?
Probably not. Laser treatments reduce hair growth, they do not stop it entirely. Additionally, our bodies will produce more or less hair at different times of our life. Hormone changes are one of the biggest factors in hair production, so you might find that you get a surge of new hair growth during your middle age years (for women, menopause and perimenopause are known to trigger changes in hair growth).
However, many people who undergo laser hair reduction enjoy such a big decrease in hair growth that they don’t need to shave as often—or even at all. The goal for those who opt for laser hair reduction is not to stop growing hair, but rather to reduce the amount of hair growth. Of course, there are some people who may find their treated area produces no hair or almost no hair after their treatment. Everyone is different.
Hair Removal Treatment Numbers
Laser hair reduction will require multiple treatments. This is for numerous reasons, including the fact that your hair grows in cycles. It’s impossible to catch all of your hair follicles in the same cycle during the same hair reduction session. The exact number of sessions every client needs varies, but you will be given an estimate during your first treatment.
Laser hair reduction can give you back not only time, but confidence. Enjoy the freedom to wear clothing you love without worrying over whether you’ve shaved that morning or not. Slip into shorts, tank tops, and bathing suits with a renewed sense of self. Laser hair reduction can positively influence your life in as little as a few lunch-hour long sessions.
Starting Laser Hair Reduction
Right now is the best time to schedule laser hair reduction so that you can see serious results by the time spring and summer arrive. Since laser hair reduction does take a little time to work (results are not immediate), starting sessions now will increase the odds of final results falling perfectly during the warmer weather ahead. Make 2021 the year you get back those hours lost in 2020 thanks to laser hair reduction. Connect with Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care to schedule your laser hair reduction by calling (408) 688-2082.
