Young girls are very conscious of their body hair from as early an age as 10-11. As soon as they start wearing short skirts and shorts, they all want smooth hairless arms and legs. Waxing and epilating are painful processes that have to be continued to retain the desired look. Nowadays, a permanent solution to unwanted hair is laser hair removal. Some men have unsightly hair on their shoulders or back, even on ears which many cause embarrassment. Laser hair removal is a safe and permanent way to get rid of unwanted hair.

The many benefits of laser hair removal are that it is a non-invasive (non surgical) mild technique that is performed without use of anesthetic. Laser hair removal is a great alternative to waxing, electrolysis, epilators, and razors. This procedure removes undesirable hair from all parts of the body including chest and back leaving skin smooth and shiny. As the treatment eradicates each hair individually and large number of hair follicles at a time: large tracts of hair can be eliminated simultaneously. There is only minor discomfort involved. A laser procedure is fast and needs zero recuperation allowing immediate resumption of your normal life.

Laser treatment is also effective for achieving other end results such skin rejuvenation, tightening and resurfacing. A licensed practitioner should be consulted to get the right treatment for you or a family member. Only a generation before, women had to use messy epilating creams, painful hot wax or razors that left cuts and nicks on the skin, to look presentable. Now a couple of trips to the cosmetologist or licensed practitioner would relieve you of all your problems for a lifetime. You can say good-bye to all that loathed paraphernalia in your bathroom once you choose laser hair removal.

The next generation treatment for laser hair removal is called “Elos”. This technology allows the gentle removal of hair of many colors and types from all skin tones.  This technology enables the removal of lighter hair leaving a silky smooth finish. Lasers remove hair by the process of selective photothermolysis. The light energy from the laser is transformed into thermal energy in the follicle of each hair. The laser targets melanin, or the pigmented regions of the follicle, this is why conventional techniques were not effective in removing blonde hair; only the darker hair containing greater pigmentation of melanin was effectively removable.

People from the sunny south are often in beachwear or wear skimpy clothing because of the heat; women would love to look their best when their arms or legs are showing so it would be a good idea to opt for laser hair removal. Clearwater FL offers this treatment at some of the best clinics with properly trained professionals.
