Temporary hair removal such as shaving, waxing, plucking and depilatories can be a thing of the past when you have permanent laser hair removal
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Much more than a laser vein treatment center, the Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute also offers an array of permanent hair removal options. In fact, as the premier center of permanent hair removal in Los Angeles, there are many options for both men and women who want more than a temporary solution to their unwanted hair. While temporary hair removal methods may appear more budget-friendly at first, these techniques often have to be repeated over and over again and only yield short-lived results. From bikini line and legs to underarm and facial laser hair removal, sessions at the center's offices in Encino and Thousand Oaks allow patients to ditch their tweezers, razors, waxes and other temporary hair removal methods for good.
Permanent hair removal from the Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute prevents the painful side effects of temporary hair removal methods, which are also tedious and time-consuming. In fact, plucking unwanted hair in the unibrow, chin or upper lip areas can result in unsightly, itchy ingrown hairs. Shaving the bikini line might cause skin irritation and bumps, as this area is highly sensitive. Even professional waxing, notoriously painful, can run upwards of $20 per treatment and the result is only temporary. Many women who undergo waxing sessions for their bikini area also experience intense itching as the hair grows back in. Depilatory creams and foams used to remove hair in a supposedly painless way can cause a raw, burning sensation if left on too long, or not work sufficiently if wiped away too quickly.
Alternatively, professional laser hair removal results in smoother skin with each treatment. What's more, hi-tech laser hair removal is precise and predictable, whereas temporary hair removal doesn't provide the same results every time. At Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute, you will be given protective eyeglasses and a cooling gel for the area to be treated before the session starts. Then, the technician will use a handheld device that sends out a pulsing laser to seek out and destroy hair follicles. This may feel something like a gentle pinch or a quick snap of a hot rubberband, depending on the patient's pain tolerance level. Either way, the laser inhibits hair growth for hair that is actively growing. Hair is less noticeable starting after the very first session, and the Mayo Clinic estimates that lasers can reduce hair amounts by as much as 80 percent after each session.
Patients should be aware that FDA-approved laser hair removal takes multiple sessions to completely eliminate hair. The reason is because only the follicles producing actively growing hair are eliminated during sessions. Usually four to six treatments are needed, and they must be spaced out at least 4 weeks apart to achieve the best results and to allow the skin to heal. Some redness, blisters and temporary burning may result, but these are uncommon at Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute, as our technicians are highly experienced and are adept at ensuring patient comfort and overall positive results. In any case, ice packs and cooling gel are applied after the treatment to soothe treated areas.
Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute has a stellar reputation. The clinic always evaluates patients individually and never gives patients the one-size-fits-all approach used at lesser clinics. Patients are encouraged to book sessions if they have unwanted hair in virtually any area of the body.
