Hair Removal in Westport, CT
Laser hair removal is a quick and safe procedure that reduces unwanted hair on your face and body. Traditional hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing, and tweezing, offer only a temporary solution. Each of these procedures can also result in ingrown hairs.
Laser hair removal targets the dark pigment (melanin) within the hair follicle without damaging the pores or the integrity of the skin. Since hair grows in cycles through "growth" and "dormant" phases, and because the follicle has no pigment during the "dormant" phase, multiple treatments are necessary.
Laser hair removal can be used to treat facial hair, along with the following areas: arms, underarms, back, chest, bikini, and legs.
- Because hair grows in cycles, multiple sessions may be required
- There may be a slight swelling or reddening of the skin, but this will subside within a few hours.
- You should avoid the sun for four to six weeks before and after the treatments.
- Avoid tweezing and waxing the areas for several weeks prior to the treatment.
We offer laser hair removal for the following areas:
