The Way For Silky Skin With SmartyBody Laser Hair Removal
For years, laser hair removal was inconveniently expensive. Laser hair removal used to be an option only available at a dermatology or licensed offices, costing hundreds of dollars per treatment.
However, in the last few years, there is now an increasing number of at-home laser hair removal options. These at-home laser hair removal systems are now another DIY hair removal method like at home waxing or shaving, and last longer. While initially, these systems only worked for dark hair on light skin, now there are options for a wider range of skin and hair colors available.
Many of these laser hair removal systems for home use are reasonably priced and highly effective, and a great solution for anyone looking for long term hair removal.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
For more than 20 years, clinicians and beauticians have been testing and commercially applying a relatively new method of hair removal - Laser Hair Removal.
This technique uses pulses of laser light to target the chromophore molecules sitting in your hair follicle and skin. These are called melanin, a term you may have come across before. There is a higher concentration of melanin in your hair compared to your skin.
Through SmartyBody experiments, this method has been found ineffective on pale skin tones in combination with blonde hair, or black hair in combination with deeper skin tones, due to the lower ratio of melanin in hair: skin.
The light emitted by the device is absorbed by these pigmented areas to specifically disrupt the hair follicle. Therefore it is especially effective when your skin and hair color has visibly high color contrast as the higher melanin content in the hair shaft allows better targeting of the follicle with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.
After several treatment sessions, the regular disruption to the hair follicle dramatically reduces hair growth. Over the years we have perfected the technology and today, many are using this as an approved, safe and efficient method of hair removal to treat the growth of hair on the body; including facial hair for women and men.
Although this method has long-term, stable reductions in hair growth, overtime some hair will grow back because the treatment does not permanently stop growth from all hair follicles. They may claim permanent facial hair removal and best laser hair removal with the best laser hair removal machine, but it is not permanent!
Comparison with Waxing
As you may know, waxing can have many of the same results as shaving: the drying up of your skin, the painful rashes, and nasty ingrown.
The pain itself is enough for Honey Skin to say no and encourage treating yourself and your skin better.
However, waxing can also leave small wounds where the hair has been pulled from the root, increase your risk of STIs as you have removed the protective layer on the surface of the skin and leave your skin vulnerable to damage due to the temporary widening of pores.
But there’s still something we’re forgetting - the regular pulling and stretching of the skin causes premature aging!
We’re all about retaining our youth and yet we expose our delicate skin to such harsh treatment.
How Many Sessions are Needed?
This is required because hair growths in cycles of 3 phases, and the follicle must be damaged in all 3 phases in order for the hair to revert to near-invisible baby hairs. The hairs being treated will fall out on their own after 2-3 weeks, and it is best to allow this process to occur naturally for safety reasons.
Generally, different beauticians, clinics and brands will require their own conditions on length of treatment. A number of factors are involved such as the type of laser being used, the clients' skin and hair pigment combination and the targeted area.
IS IT PERMANENT?
when you decide to use an IPL laser to get rid of body hairs, you are either saying that you don't want to get rid of body hairs often or you don’t want to have the need to get rid of any hairs ever again. You read that right.
This Laser can help you achieve permanent hair loss. This is because it enters the skin and targets the hair shaft. It essentially works on the hair follicle thereby stopping hair growth for a long time or permanently. You should understand that the treated hair comes off in the space of two to three weeks and if you give yourself three to seven treatment sessions, you will most likely achieve permanent hair loss.
This advantage makes using a laser hair remover preferable to shaving, waxing or making use of electrolysis which can afford you only a few weeks of smooth and hairless skin.
If you are tired of dealing with aftershave burns, scarring and skin discoloration that comes from using electrolysis, or irritations and offensive smells that accompany depilatory creams, then you should use a laser hair remover. This method has minimal side effects, and these side effects don’t last for more than a couple of days.
Treatment Is rapidly Done:
Laser treatment has the advantage of being done fast. This, of course, depends on the part of the body that's being treated. So, you can very quickly get rid of those unpleasant body hairs and still meet up with your appointments for the day.
Makes Regrown Hair Sparse And Fine:
Unlike shaving that leaves you battling thick and excessively regrown hairs, IPL lasers do the exact opposite. In the first instance, hair takes a good while before resurfacing after treatment. In some cases, the hair removal effect can be permanent. However, if body hairs regrow after your treatment, chances are that they won't be thick and unpleasant to the eyes. Such hairs will be sparse and fine and you will be able to flaunt them.What you can expect
Laser hair removal usually requires a series of two to six treatments. The interval between treatments will vary depending on the location. On areas where hair grows quickly, such as the upper lip, the treatment might be repeated in four to eight weeks. On areas of slow hair growth, such as the back, the treatment might be every 12 to 16 weeks.
For each treatment, you'll wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam. An assistant might shave the site again if necessary. The doctor might apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to reduce any discomfort during treatment.
