Laser Hair Removal in Rockford / Hoffman Estates / Palm Beach Gardens

If you’re fed up with the hassle of regular, at-home hair removal, get ready to transform your life with laser hair removal, and enjoy silky smooth skin while saying good-bye to shaving, waxing, and tweezing!

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. and thousands of individuals, both men and women, seek laser hair removal every year.

With laser hair removal you can enjoy silky smooth skin without the hassles of regular shaving, waxing, or tweezing, freeing up all that time so you can enjoy more of your life!

Why Consider Laser Hair Removal?

Let’s face it, almost anything you wear will be enhanced if your skin is hairless and silk-smooth when you wear it. This is why the vast majority of adult men and women practice some form of ongoing cosmetic hair removal regularly, such as shaving, waxing, and/or tweezing unwanted hair from parts of the body such as the face, underarms, arms, back, and chest.

Once you try laser hair removal, you’ll wonder how you ever found the time (and money) to keep up with years of shaving, waxing, and tweezing treatments in an attempt to maintain silky smooth skin and look great in any outfit.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser treatment is effective at removing unwanted hair from all the common treatment areas, such as the face, legs, back, arms, underarms, bikini line, as well as almost any other area on the body.

Treatment may be focused to achieve very precise results on delicate areas such as the chin, upper lip, and eyebrows. There are countless benefits to laser hair removal, not the least of which include the money you’ll save on years worth of shaving and other hair removal supplies. Other benefits of laser hair removal include:

Efficiency.

Laser hair removal will save you considerable amounts of time each month on the hassles of regular hair removal treatments. Lasers work quickly and efficiently to cover large treatment areas. Each laser pulse takes only a fraction of a second and treats many hairs simultaneously. 

Effectiveness.

The procedure can offer permanent removal of about 80 - 90 percent of unwanted hair. Darker and coarser hairs can typically take an average of about three to seven sessions, but you won’t have to worry about hair re-growth in those areas once completed.

Precision.

Lasers may be precisely directed to selectively treat the desired areas without affecting the surrounding skin. You can even hone in on delicate or small areas such as the eyebrows and upper lip, with exact precision.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

In preparation for the procedure, the hair that will be treated must be trimmed to a length of only a few millimeters. We will apply a topical numbing ointment 20 - 30 minutes prior to the procedure, to help keep you comfortable during treatment and alleviate the potential stinging sensation that the laser pulses may cause.

The laser device is extremely versatile and can be adjusted precisely, according to the specific treatment area, as well as the specific color and thickness of the hair being treated, and even the color of your skin. During the actual treatment, the device beams direct highly concentrated pulses of light directly into hair follicles. The light is absorbed by pigmentation in the follicles, which over time, makes the hair follicle dissolve.

During a laser hair removal treatment, light energy converts to heat, destroying hair follicles, which inhibits future hair re-growth in the treatment area. Once the procedure is completed, which usually takes under an hour, depending on the treatment area and the density of your hair in that area, you may use ice packs, anti-inflammatory lotions or creams, or cold water to alleviate any stinging or burning sensation or discomfort.

Laser Hair Removal Results

Over the course of the next several weeks, you will notice that the treated hair begins falling out, and your skin will start to become gradually smoother, with less and less hair as time passes.

Don’t forget to use a good sunscreen every time you go outside during the first month following treatment, in order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and prevent possible reaction of the treated skin.

Your follow-up treatments should be scheduled about four to six weeks apart, and you may require several treatments to achieve sufficient hair removal from target areas. Once you achieve your aesthetic goal, follow-up treatments once or twice yearly will help you maintain fabulous results!
