Laser Hair Removal in Tijuana
Did you know that hair covers almost every area of your body? Much of this hair is unnoticeable, thanks to its lighter color and fine quality. Sometimes, however, hair grows darker and coarser throughout undesirable areas of the body, resulting in an unsightly look. If you are frustrated by unwanted hair, VIDA Wellness and Beauty can help. We offer laser hair removal to eliminate unwanted hair from almost any area of the body, for a smoother appearance, with long-lasting results.
Advantages of Laser Hair Removal
Before the advent of laser hair removal technology, the only methods to eliminate unwanted hair were painful waxing, plucking, threading or electrolysis, depilatory creams and shaving. These methods were time consuming, inconvenient and expensive when adding up the costs over a lifetime.
Fortunately, laser hair removal is now a viable way to get rid of unwanted hair, with extremely long-lasting results. In addition, laser hair removal treatment is a relatively quick procedure that is virtually painless.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Lasers are able to eliminate hair by delivering highly concentrated light energy into the follicles of the unwanted hair. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the laser’s light and heat, thereby damaging both the hair follicle and shaft. This impedes the hair’s ability to re-grow.
The Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Over the years there has been intense competition among laser hair removal systems and despite the intense competition and high equipment costs, we are proud to announce that Cosmed has made an investment in a brand new, top of the line LightSheer Diode hair removal laser. The LightSheer Diode laser has had unsurpassed success in clinical trials. The system uses a patented “ChillTip™ handpiece” which provides consistent cooling on the top layers of skin, which ensures a safe and comfortable experience while at the same time allowing the laser to penetrate all the way to the base of the hair follicle.
The total treatment time varies, largely based on which areas of the body are being treated. Laser hair removal takes anywhere from about five minutes, if one small area of the body (e.g., the upper lip or the underarms) is treated, up to about one hour if a large area of the body (e.g., the back) is being treated. No downtime is needed, but individuals must avoid exposing the treatment area to the sun for several weeks after the procedure.
Most patients find that they do not need a topical anesthetic or gel before having laser hair removal treatment, and that the procedure is nearly painless. Some patients report that treatment feels like a warm rubber band snapping on the skin, but are able to tolerate the sensation easily.
Several treatment sessions are needed for optimal results. The laser works best on hair that is in the active-growth (anagen) stage, and not all hairs are in the anagen stage at the same time. For this reason, the treatment must be repeated as new hairs enter the anagen stage. Once the recommended treatment protocol is complete, patients can expect long-lasting results.
