No one wants to live with unwanted body hair, and millions of procedures are done in homes and doctor’s offices every year to control and maintain body hair. However, plucking, waxing, and shaving can all be time-consuming, expensive, exhaustive, and even potentially dangerous.
At Shoreline Medical Spa, we know how important it is to look your best, which is why today we’re digging into an exciting new hair removal option: The ELOS Laser Hair Removal Procedure.
What Is ELOS Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal works by aiming a powerful beam of light at your hair, allowing the pigment to absorb that light, damaging the follicle in order to stop or slow further growth. The ELOS Laser Hair Removal system improves the procedure by adding Bi-Polar Radio Frequency to the mix, allowing for lower energy outputs in the laser, leading to a multitude of unwanted hair removal benefits.
How Does ELOS Laser Hair Removal Work?
Before your treatment, it’s important to avoid waxing or plucking, so that you have hair follicles for the laser to target. Thirty minutes before the procedure, numbing cream may be applied, especially to sensitive areas. Then the area is shaved and the procedure happens for five to sixty minutes, after which you can get right up and go on with your day. Most common side effects include minor redness that vanishes quickly.
For ideal hair reduction effects, around six treatments are needed, but this varies depending on hair color, skin type, and the area being treated.
What Are The Benefits of ELOS Laser Hair Removal?
There are plenty! For one, the procedure can target just about any area, no matter what size. It also has fewer long-time irritating side-effects than most other methods of hair removal, and is safer as well. Finally, laser hair removal provides long-term results backed by science. The ELOS system is especially safe, and has the added benefit of being the first technology that works for all skin types.
To conclude, ELOS Laser Hair Removal is a powerful, easy, and safe way for you to remove any body hair, and we’re proud to offer it to our patients at Shoreline Medical Spa!
