Is it just me or is free time becoming more and more like the unicorn? Though we live in a world of cell phones, tablets, and laptops where information moves at lightning speed, I still feel as if there are never enough hours in the day to do everything that I want to do. And from listening to my patients, I’m not the only one. Which got me thinking about laser hair removal. I know that it’s a bit of a non sequitur but bear with me.
Quite a few of you are probably heading to points south in the next couple of months for spring break, Easter, or just a respite from the snow. Which means bathing suits. Which requires grooming of unwanted hairs. Which is annoyingly time consuming. This year, instead of shaving, waxing, or using a depilatory, why not try laser hair removal? My Boston patients like it because it’s fast, virtually painless and very effective.
The procedure itself is simple. A laser is passed over the treatment area, sending a pulse of energy into the hair follicle, causing it to fall out. As long as the hair was in the anagen growth phase, the results are for good. However, since hair on the face and body goes through three stages of growth and not all of it at the same time, it’ll take more than one session for fully permanent results.
At Christopher Davidson MD, we use the ClearScan laser because it’s simply fabulous. Great for both men and women, it’s perfect for treating hair on the back, neck, under arms, bikini line, legs, arms, and face. It works on patients of all skin colors and hair colors except for white and very blonde. The reason for this is that the laser is actually attracted to the melanin in the hair, and if there’s no melanin … well, you get the picture. Each session only takes about 30 minutes before you’re out the door and back to your life. You may experience a little redness or swelling, but it should fade within a couple of hours.
Imagine never having to shave or wax again. No more ingrown hairs. No more razor rash. No more painful wax. And just think of all that free time. What are you waiting for? Call us today to schedule your laser hair removal.
