Women (and men) have been trying to get rid of unwanted hair for centuries. Shaving, plucking, waxing and chemical dilapitory agents have been used by literally billions of people for thousands of years. Yet in Manhattan, the latest trend in hair removal promises long lasting, less painful results than any of these methods.
Both the trendy and not so trendy flock to the new laser hair removal treatment centers in Manhattan to receive the latest technology in smooth, hairless skin. The procedure is described as safe, using a very low level laser beam. The laser’s energy enters the pigment inside the hair follicle. As the energy heats the pigment, the hair’s root is destroyed but the surrounding skin remains unharmed. The follicle is also “deactivated,” reducing regrowth.
For most, the procedure takes from 15 minutes to just over an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated. The process is virtually painless, with most patients experiencing a slight stinging sensation. Of course, the more sensitive the area, the more likely that some unpleasant sensations will occur. For the more sensitive areas, a topical numbing cream may be used.
Since hair grows in cycles, it may take several sessions to remove all of the hair in an area, but once the treatments are completed the results are extremely long lasting. Not only are the treatments quick and painless, but they are surprisingly affordable as well.
There are many laser hair removal clinics in Manhattan. Choose one that uses an FDA approved laser specifically designed for hair removal. Different lasers are used for different skin types, so check to see if the laser used by the clinic is right for your coloration. Make sure that your technician is certified and fully trained on the equipment being used.
