The laser hair removal process can be quite confusing at first. After all, there are several types of laser treatments available to you. Choosing the most appropriate one can be a bit of a challenge. However, it will soon become less challenging when you know what to look for.
For instance, how much hair you want to remove has a direct impact on the type of procedure you should have. So does the color and thickness of the hair. Certain therapy types are better suited to larger hair removal issues, while others are better for minor maintenance. Each case is different.
How to Remove Hair That is Light or Thin
Just because you may only have a little light colored hair that you want to remove doesn't mean that you're stuck shaving or waxing forever. You can opt to look for aesthetic laser devices to treat the problem.
The best lasers to treat hair problems tend to be intense pulsed light devices, also known as IPL machines. Many people choose to buy their own IPL devices. The small, compact tools are designed to be used in your own home. But sometimes those treatments aren't strong enough. If you still find yourself struggling, a good next step is to sign up for professional IPL sessions at a spa or clinic in your local area.
How to Treat More Severe Body Hair Problems
If you experiencing a more severe problem with body hair, or if the hair is growing in thick and dark, you might need a different form of treatment to fix it. One option is (yttrium-aluminum-garnet, or YAG. YAG machines are designed to primarily target areas of dark or thick hair. They are also stronger than IPL machines, which allows them to handle more widespread body hair issues and treat wider surface areas more quickly and thoroughly.
The tricky part about going in for YAG sessions to remove body hair is that you have to be positive that it is a true YAG treatment. There are other types of lasers out there, which some clinics claim are YAG lasers. That's why it's so important to fully trust your clinic before you have any procedure done.
How to Build Up That Trust
Trusting a particular clinic or spa shouldn't be immediate. Make sure that they earn your trust. One way for them to do that is to answer every question you have in a timely, accurate, knowledgeable way. They should also be able to produce verifiable credentials and references.
After you ask the clinic in question any questions you may have and are satisfied that they are experts in the field, you can start to make a treatment plan with them. They will go over your medical history, skin type, concerns you may have, and options that are available to you. Then you can get the best possible results on your laser hair removal journey. But do keep in mind that you are probably going to need periodic ongoing treatments to keep the unwanted hair at bay, regardless of the type of device they use to treat you.
