Laser hair removal has been in use since 1997 and has been approved for “permanent hair reduction” in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under the FDA’s definition, “permanent” hair reduction is lessening the number of hair growing again post treatment for a long term and stabilising it. It is the most commonly practiced procedure at any Dermatology clinic. Lasers cause localised damage of hair follicle by selectively targetting melanin, while sparing the rest of the skin. For this reason, dark black and brown hair responds faster and better than dirty blonde hair. Lasers do not work on gray hair.
There are various laser equipments used for hair removal like Diode, ND YAG, Alaxandrite and Ruby. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is yet another kind of equipment, though not a laser, it can still be used for hair removal. Usually 6-8 treatment sessions are provided with a gap of four to eight weeks between each session. Depending upon the laser used, the procedure can be painless to mildly painful.
Typically the shedding of the treated hair takes about two to three weeks. These hair strands should be allowed to fall out themselves and should not be manipulated by the patient. Hair removal lasers are effective treatment for “ingrown hairs” or “shaving bumps” medically known as pseudo folliculitis barbae. Laser hair reduction is the safest, natural and most effective method of hair removal and should be preferred over the painful methods of hair removal like waxing, threading and epilation.
I’ve always dealt with severe, stubborn acne of all types. Ever since I was as young as eleven, even at ten, I would deal with horrible breakouts that just would NOT go away, not with thousands spent on prescription face creams or antibiotics recommended by multiple dermatologists. Then I visited Enhance, ever since, my skin is showing IMMEDIATE results. It’s an amazing thing to see, and while I still am struggling with acne, and all the damage it’s left behind on my face, Enhance really helped me so much.
I have struggled with acne for the past five years, and it was really getting me down. I had tried so many different products, and none seemed to work. Now, after visiting Enhance and getting treated there, the difference is amazing – my skin is almost totally clear, the texture is massively improved. I am so much more confident, and would definitely recommend Enhance for anybody struggling with Acne.
