What is Laser Hair Removal?

Welcome to a detailed exploration of laser hair removal brought to you by Lotus Bloom Skincare. Laser hair removal in Winnipeg and around the world is growing in popularity. You’ve probably heard a lot about laser hair removal but might be wondering if it’s the right choice for you. With all the different hair removal options out there, why choose laser?

What exactly is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. During the procedure, the laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Lotus Bloom Skincare offers state-of-the-art laser hair removal services in our salons, designed to provide you with smooth, hair-free skin.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Compare to Other hair removal methods?

Unlike shaving, waxing, or epilating, laser hair removal offers a longer-term solution. Shaving cuts hair at the skin’s surface, and waxing pulls hair out by the root, but both will see the hair return in days to weeks. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, targets the hair’s growth capability, leading to permanent reduction over time.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

Many clients describe the sensation as a rubber band snapping against the skin. Compared to the pain of waxing, many find laser hair removal to be less painful. Plus, as you undergo more sessions, the discomfort decreases due to the reduction in hair thickness and density.

At Lotus Bloom Skincare we use the Candela GentleMax Pro, which is known for enhancing client comfort. This advanced laser system features a dynamic cooling device that sprays a fine mist of cryogen onto the skin milliseconds before the laser pulse. The cryogen rapidly cools the skin, significantly reducing discomfort during the procedure.

What are the Benefits of Choosing Laser Hair Removal?

  1. Precision: Lasers can selectively hair while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Unlike shaving, you no longer need to worry about missing a spot.
  2. Speed & Cleanup: Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Laser hair removal typically takes less time than shaving, waxing, or sugaring and doesn’t involve the associated mess. It also represents a one-time investment of time for long term savings into the future.
  3. Permanence: Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.

Is laser hair removal worth the extra cost?

While laser hair removal might seem pricier upfront compared to other methods, the long-term savings are significant. Imagine reducing or even eliminating the need for razors, shaving cream, or waxing services. Plus, the time you save not having to regularly remove hair is a benefit that’s hard to quantify.
