It's Not Too Late for Laser Hair Removal in Denver
Now that warmer weather has arrived, men and women are breaking out their summer wardrobes and thinking about laser hair removal. This treatment works quickly to permanently reduce hair for a smoother appearance and increased convenience.
Denver, Colorado (July 2010) – Summer is just around the corner and, as the weather heats up, everyone wants to look their best in shorts, bathing suits, and sundresses. Medical spa services are a great way to rejuvenate your look at any time of the year, but according to Dr. Steven Vath and Dr. Andrew Wolfe, co-directors of Rejuvenate! medical spa, now is an especially good time to consider laser hair removal in Denver.
"At our spa in Denver, BOTOX® Cosmetic and other skincare treatments like chemical peels are always popular, but around this time of year, we see many men and women coming in for laser hair removal," says Dr. Vath. "You show a lot more skin during the summer and that means you have to do a lot more plucking, waxing, and shaving. With a few quick laser hair removal treatments, you can permanently reduce unwanted hair and do away with the inconvenience of waxing and shaving."
Drs. Vath and Wolfe have chosen the eMax Laser Hair Removal System from Syneron™ to treat their laser hair removal patients. The eMax system uses radio-frequency and light energy to target hair follicles. The system is very precise and can remove even light-colored hair from people with all skin tones. It can be used to treat areas of all sizes, such as the underarms, back, legs, arms, bikini line, or face.
"During the summer, a lot of our female clients are interested in laser hair removal for their bikini line, legs, and underarms. Men tend to show more interest in treating their back," adds Dr. Wolfe. "The great thing about the eMax system is that it can remove unwanted hair from almost any part of the body, no matter what your hair color or skin tone."
In order to get the most out of laser hair removal, patients generally need 3 to 7 treatment sessions spaced about a month apart, depending on the treatment area. Multiple treatment sessions are necessary because hair goes through cycles – at any given time, some follicles are in their "active" phase while others are in their "dormant phase." Laser treatment is only effective on follicles that are in their active phase, so going through multiple sessions ensures that all the follicles in the treatment area are caught. The length of each treatment session will vary depending on the size of the treatment area, but most are under an hour (an underarm treatment generally takes 20 minutes, for example).
Laser hair removal is completely non-surgical and patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the treatment session. Some patients do experience minor redness or swelling in the treated area. Patients should use moisturizer and gentle cleansers and avoid sun exposure for a few days following laser hair removal to prevent dryness and irritation.
"Whether you're coming for a topical skincare product, laser hair removal, or BOTOX in Denver, men and women should know that all the services we offer at Rejuvenate! are designed and monitored by licensed medical professionals," says Dr. Vath. "Laser hair removal is a great way to make looking your best easier during the summer and the whole year round."
