Laser Hair Removal
Are you tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing? It may be time to consider laser hair removal in Raleigh NC. Lasers can remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Removing unwanted hair usually takes 6 sessions or more.
The ideal candidates for laser hair removal are those with dark hair and light skin, but it can still work on any skin type. Laser hair removal is not suitable for candidates with cystic acne, psoriasis, or dermatitis; pregnant or breastfeeding candidates; candidates with metal screws in the treatment area; or candidates with a pacemaker.
Candidates taking Retin-A or Accutane will need to discontinue use of those medications for a period of time prior to having laser hair removal, and they will need a consultation with our providers prior to starting laser hair removal treatments.
At Thrive Skin + Wellness, we like to focus on the after results because how you look and feel post
– treatment is what counts the most.
Laser hair removal damages hair follicles using highly concentrated light to delay them from growing again for long periods. It targets actively growing follicles, so it takes a few sessions before significant hair reduction shows.
A handheld laser is held above the skin, usually with a cooling device on its tip for the skin’s protection. When the treatment starts, the laser beam will penetrate the skin to reach the hair follicles, damage them, and stop them from growing new hairs. The patient might feel a little warm pinprick sensation.
The duration of the procedure varies depending on the size of the treatment location. Small areas are quick, whereas the back can take over an hour.
Pixel laser resurfacing is effective for treating a variety of skin conditions including acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture, sun-damaged skin, melasma and other forms of hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and other scars. Pixel can be performed on the face, neck, chest and most other parts of the body.
