We are continuing our series that addresses some common concerns about hair removal laser treatment.  Our previous article covered the fact that laser hair removal does NOT cause hair to grow back thicker. We also touched on the fact that hair removal laser treatment works by using a laser that emits light and heat, NOT radiation.  Today, we will answer more questions about hair removal laser treatment.

“I’ve Heard That Laser Hair Removal is Only Effective on the Legs.”

While full legs laser is a popular treatment, be assured that laser hair removal can be performed on any body area. In fact, full body hair removal is a service we perform quite often. And, when it comes to permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is proud to serve both men and women.

“Doesn’t Healing After Hair Removal Laser Treatment Take Forever?

While it will likely take multiple treatments to achieve permanent hair removal, you will be able to return to work and most regular activities the same day. You will likely experience some skin sensitivity and redness for a short period of time, but this will subside, usually in about 12-24 hours for most people.

Our next series of articles will address some common concerns people have about laser hair removal.

“I’ve Heard Laser Hair Removal Can Cause Hair to Grow Back Thicker”

While there are some forms of hair removal that can cause hair to grow back thicker, this is simply not true when it comes to hair removal laser treatment. Laser hair removal treats the hair follicles, so they are unable to produce new hair. When laser hair removal is properly performed using a medical laser, the results are permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser.

“My Friend Told Me Not to Get Hair Removal Laser Treatment Because of Radiation Exposure”

This is not true. Lasers work by emitting light energy. No radiation or radioactive material is used when performing laser hair removal.

More Post Laser Hair Removal Guidelines

We are continuing our series of articles discussing some guidelines and tips to consider after you’ve had hair removal laser treatment.  Our previous articles covered the importance of avoiding any skin irritants for at least a week afterwards, using SPF 50 sunscreen if you plan to go outside, avoiding waxing, plucking, and depilatories, and refraining from using hot water or saunas until the redness subsides.  Today, we will look at two more post laser hair removal tips.

Exfoliate

It does take some time for the treated hair to shed out and away from the follicles.  Therefore, we recommend you gently exfoliate the area(s) where you received hair removal laser treatment at least every other day for one week afterwards. This will help the treated, dead hair to shed.

Use Lots of Moisturizer!

Applying moisturizer daily is recommended after hair removal laser treatment.  Not only is this a good practice that helps keep your skin healthy in general, but doing so after laser hair removal and any subsequent exfoliation treatments keeps your skin looking and feeling replenished.

If you are seeking the best hair removal treatment, then Manhattan Laser Centers is the place for you.  We perform everything from full body hair removal and full legs laser to laser hair removal on single areas. After your hair removal laser treatment, you will be provided with a list of specific post-treatment guidelines to help ensure its effectiveness. Give us a call to schedule an appointment today.

Guidelines for Best Laser Hair Removal Results

We are continuing our series on what to expect and recommendations of some things to do after you’ve had a hair removal laser treatment session. Our previous articles covered the fact that the area treated may feel like a sunburn for a day or so, the importance of avoiding hot water and saunas, making a plan to take it easy, and avoiding skin irritants after laser hair removal. Today, will look at two more recommendations to consider.

Use SPF 50 Sunscreen

You should apply sunscreen to the treated area every day until you conclude all of your laser hair removal treatments. If you plan to go outside, be sure to use at least an SPF 50 sunscreen with UVA/UVB. In fact, this is a good practice all the time, regardless of whether or not you’ve had hair removal laser treatment.

Avoid Waxing, Plucking, Electrolysis, or Depilatories

While it may be tempting, you need to completely avoid waxing, plucking, electrolysis, and depilatories before, after, and between laser hair removal sessions. If you need to, you can gently shave the area as needed after the redness and swelling subsides. Once you have completed your laser hair removal treatments, hair removal will be permanent.

We are continuing our series of articles discussing what you can expect after receiving hair removal laser treatment. Our previous article discussed how laser hair removal may feel a bit like a sunburn for a few hours or days afterwards. We also covered the importance of avoiding hot showers, baths, spas, and saunas for a minimum of 12 hours after your hair removal laser treatment. Today, we will discuss two more recommendations to consider after you’ve had a laser hair removal session.

Take It Easy

Although laser hair removal treatments are quick and painless, you should still avoid strenuous activities for at least 12 hours afterwards. It is completely normal for the skin on and around the treated area to be slightly red and swollen for several hours. It is a good idea to refrain from exercising, jogging, and any other type of related activity until the redness and/or swelling does away.

Avoid Irritants

You should avoid anything that could irritate your skin for at least one full week after you’ve had hair removal laser treatment. This includes staying away from acids, retinoids and anything else that can cause skin irritation.

We have been exploring some of the reasons why people choose laser hair removal. Our previous articles covered how hair removal laser treatment allows you to be free from the worries of unwanted hair. We also covered how some people seek laser hair removal for hair reduction and to boost self-confidence.  We also touched on the fact that hair removal laser treatment also helps promote healthier skin.  Today, we will look at more reasons why people consider laser hair removal.

Affordable

Not only is the laser hair removal process affordable, you save money in the long run on items such as razors, shaving cream, waxing supplies, appointments for temporary hair removal services such as waxing, etc. Time is money, and hair removal laser treatment also saves time because you no longer have to worry about making time for shaving or waxing.

Permanent

Probably one of the most attractive aspects about laser hair removal is that it is permanent. Other types of hair removal including shaving and waxing, are not permanent hair removal solutions.  Hair removal laser treatment often only takes a few minutes per session depending on the area being treated, and permanent results can often achieved in approximately 8-10 sessions.

When it comes to permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers has you covered. We invite you to come and see why we are considered the best laser hair removal in NYC.  We specialize in CANDELA laser hair removal and use the FDA approved CANDELA medical laser. We treat all areas, and even perform full body hair removal. We invite you to schedule an appointment today!

Our previous article discussed how hair removal laser treatment allows you to be completely free of having to worry about unwanted hair that needs to be shaved or waxed. We also discussed how laser hair removal can be used for hair reduction purposes. Today, we will look at more benefits of choosing hair removal laser treatment.

Improve Self-Esteem

Laser hair removal can help improve the self-esteem of individuals who are either embarrassed about excessive hair or hair growth on certain parts of their bodies.  For instance, many male clients come to us for hair removal laser treatment on their neck, back and buttocks areas.  Females with dark or thick hair on their arms, chin, upper lip, or other areas often seek laser hair removal to address these areas. Hair removal laser treatment can boost self-confidence and improve self-esteem.

Healthy Skin

Laser hair removal not only makes your skin smoother, but it helps promote its health. Shaving and waxing are notorious for causing ingrown hairs, irritation, and infection.  This is not the case with hair removal laser treatment. Once you have achieved permanent hair removal, you never have to worry about the side effects of waxing or shaving again.

Our next article will cover more reasons why so many people choose laser hair removal.

No More Hair Worries

Laser hair removal allows you to be completely free of having to contend with shaving or waxing body hair. Hair removal laser treatment allows you to always be bikini ready!  Men sometimes want facial hair removal with laser to help eliminate the worries of having to deal with a five o’ clock shadow.

Hair Reduction

There are cases where men with much hair or very thick hair on their bodies seek hair removal laser treatment to reduce the amount of hair in certain areas.  Some men are comfortable with having hair on their bodies in general provided that it is not thick or plentiful in certain areas. Those with thick hair on their faces sometimes opt for facial hair removal with laser to reduce the amount of hair.

More Types of Laser Hair Removal Processes

We are continuing our series discussing some of the different types of laser hair removal processes. Our previous article covered Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and the Diode laser. Today, we will look at two other technologies that may be used by a laser hair removal center.

Ruby Laser

The Ruby laser is a “classic” in the laser hair removal industry.  It was ideal in its heyday; however, it is rarely used today in favor of newer laser technology options.  The Ruby laser is very limiting because it’s not effective on dark skin or light/grey hair.

Medical Laser

FDA cleared medical lasers are arguably the most effective and painless option for permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the CANDELA medical laser for every hair removal laser treatment. It is ideal for treating larger areas and is often utilized for full body hair removal and full legs laser. Medical lasers are safe for all skin types, including dark skin tones.
