You’ve been cooped up all winter, and with warmer weather on the horizon, we’re all looking forward to getting outside! As you pull out your shorts and summer attire, it’s time to start getting back into a consistent hair removal regime.
But…what if you didn’t have to worry about the endless upkeep of shaving, waxing, or tweezing? Imagine ditching the razors, tweezers, and wax strips for good! Switching to something more permanent means you never have to hassle with hair removal again.
If a long-term solution that also results in clearer, smoother skin sounds good to you – laser hair removal might be just what you’re looking for!
Laser hair removal is a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment that helps you get summer ready not only this year but for all summers to come! If you’re in the Des Moines area – we can get you started here at Vibrant Skin & Body!
Why Try Laser Hair Removal?
With all the options available to you for hair removal, you may be questioning whether laser hair removal is worth investing in. Is it easier to just continue to shave, wax, or tweeze? They all get the job done, right?
You’ve probably tried one, if not all, of these methods at one time or another. And you have to keep doing them – it’s endless! The majority of hair removal options are short-term solutions. They remove your existing hair but don’t stop it from growing back.
These options can also leave you with unwanted skin problems – like razor burn, nicks and cuts, ingrown hair, redness, and irritation.
Here are the benefits of laser hair removal, and the advantages over other options:
A major benefit of laser hair removal is the longevity of the results. The root of the hair and blood flow to the hair follicle is destroyed. This significantly reduces the ability of hair to reappear. After a few sessions, many people experience the freedom of permanent hair removal!
You can target the specific area you would like your unwanted hair removed, without affecting the surrounding skin.
Our hair removal devices are approved by the FDA. They are proven safe to use on both the body and the face. The word ‘lasers’ may sound intimidating, but this treatment won’t harm your skin.
While a laser could elicit fear of pain, it’s not an uncomfortable treatment. Our device uses a built-in cooling system, keeping you comfortable during the procedure.
Laser hair removal is quick. You can get large surface areas like your legs or back taken care of in a matter of minutes. Afterward, you’re free to go about your normal day and activity. There’s no downtime.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
At Vibrant Skin and Body, we use devices from – a leader in medical aesthetics. The Diode Laser Hair Removal is considered the gold standard of hair removal. This device offers a fast and comfortable experience with long-lasting results.
It uses the proven efficacy of diode laser technology. The laser penetrates your skin via a single wavelength of light. The pigment of your hair follicle, also known as melanin, absorbs laser light. Once absorbed, the laser light breaks down the pigment which then destroys the hair follicle. No hair follicle means no future hair growth!
Venus Velocity™ is safe and effective for all skin types, including tanned skin. It works best for light brown to black hair.
What You Can Expect During Laser Hair Removal
After discussing your desired results, a hand-held laser instrument is applied to your skin. The treatment only takes about 30 minutes depending on location and amount of hair you’d like removed. A cooling system integrated into the device ensures minimal discomfort. There is no downtime post-treatment and you are clear to continue your normal activity right away.
Subsequent treatments are necessary to achieve permanent hair loss for the targeted areas. The amount varies from person to person but could be anywhere from 5 to 8 treatments for the best results.
