Laser Hair Removal: You'll Wonder Why You Waited So Long

Sep 21, 2021

If you’re tired of routine shaving, trimming, waxing, or threading, then it’s time to consider laser hair removal. 

Headed by medical director Jamé Heskett, MD, the expert team at The WellPath, with locations in New York City and Lower Hudson Valley, New York, specialize in treatments designed to make you look and feel your best, and that includes laser hair removal

When it comes to discreetly getting rid of unwanted hair, our male and female clients count on us for a safe and effective experience.

How can a laser remove hair?

The advent of laser technology revolutionized the medical industry, and it continues to find new applications. It has been instrumental in medical aesthetics, allowing us to treat delicate skin concerns on a deeper level without damaging the surface area.

We direct the light beams into the pigment in your hair follicles during the laser hair removal process, which naturally absorbs the energy as heat. This damages the follicles and makes them incapable of growing more hair.

Over time, your body flushes out the destroyed follicles. And since hair follicles don’t regenerate, it’s goodbye, hair. 

Most patients remain hair-free for years. When some of the hair regrows, it is generally less noticeable. To keep the area free of hair, you may need occasional maintenance laser treatments. 

Your laser hair removal experience

If your goal is to rid your legs of unwanted hair, it’ll likely take several treatments for the best results. The reason is that your hair grows at different rates, and some of your follicles may be in a resting or transitional stage. By treating your legs several times, weeks apart, we can be sure to provide you with complete coverage.

Even though the sessions are spread out over time, the treatments themselves usually last less than an hour — and you can go about your day afterward with no downtime. You may feel some discomfort during laser hair removal, such as a snapping or stinging sensation, but most people tolerate the treatments quite well.

You’ll gradually notice that your unwanted hair becomes more and more scarce until it finally disappears for good. About six weeks after your final session with us, your skin will be silky, smooth, and you won’t have to deal with it ever again.

If you’re ready to say goodbye to archaic hair removal methods and embrace the beauty of laser hair removal, schedule your consultation today. Call the location of your choice, and treat yourself to anti-aging treatments today!
