Benefits of Laser Hair Removal with Martin’s Rejuvenation

        2 Minutes Read

        First and foremost, it's important to emphasize that there is absolutely nothing wrong with embracing one's natural body hair. However, for those who prefer a hair-free look, options such as shaving, waxing, and laser hair removal are popular choices.

        Many individuals opt for hair removal to streamline their personal beauty routine and eliminate unwanted body hair.

        With decades of experience in the field of medical aesthetics, Martin's Rejuvenation has witnessed significant advancements in laser hair removal technology.

        Leveraging our extensive expertise in laser hair removal, we have curated a blog post to describe how laser hair removal works and to help you decide if it is worth the investment.

        So, let's begin with the fundamentals!


        What is Laser Hair Removal?

        Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes advanced laser technology to remove unwanted hair from various parts of the body. It offers a long-lasting solution for hair reduction or removal compared to traditional hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking.

        During the procedure, a highly concentrated beam of light, emitted by the laser device, targets the pigment (melanin) present in the hair follicles. The intense heat generated by the laser zaps the hair follicles, inhibiting their ability to produce new hair.

        We can treat all areas of the face and body with laser hair removal. This includes upper lip, chin, eyebrows, sideburns, bikini, legs, arms, thighs, back, chest, areola, and Brazilian to name a few.

        Below is a diagram that highlights the areas we can and cannot remove hair via laser:


        Martin’s Advanced Laser Hair Removal Device

        Our clinic offers the LightSheer Laser, a diode laser technology, which precisely pulses and targets the hair follicle while leaving the skin unharmed. This allows us to safely treat Fitzpatrick IV and higher.

        Professional laser hair removal devices and protocols vary in their effectiveness and safety. Older laser hair removal devices often focus on targeting the skin's melanin instead of directly targeting the hair follicle.

        As a consequence, this approach leads to slower progress and heightened risks for individuals with darker skin tones in the Fitzpatrick scale (Fitzpatrick IV to VI).


        Is it a permanent solution?

        The lasting results of laser hair removal are attributed to the targeted destruction of hair follicles by the laser's energy. This process inhibits future hair growth, leading to smoother and hair-free skin.

        However, it's important to note that laser hair removal typically requires multiple sessions to achieve optimal results, as hair grows in cycles and not all follicles are active at the same time.

        With proper maintenance and occasional touch-up sessions, the effects of laser hair removal can be long-lasting, providing individuals with the convenience and confidence of reduced hair growth in the treated areas.


        Is it worth the investment?

        A lot of people think that laser hair removal is expensive, but they might be surprised to learn that it can save them money and time compared to other hair removal methods such as waxing or shaving.

        On top of that, laser hair removal offers many other advantages. You can enjoy silky-smooth skin, no more ingrown hairs, and save a lot of time and effort in the long run.
