Reasons to choose laser treatments for hair removal in our Portland office

Laser for hair removal from doctor in derportland

Unwanted hair can be extremely problematic. Most of the methods used to remove unwanted hair achieve only temporary results, which can make grooming frustrating and laborious. To make matters more complex, some of the popular hair removal practices cause uncomfortable side effects such as skin irritation or bumps and redness. To eliminate these annoyances, as well as unwanted hair, you can consider a more permanent option: laser hair removal. At Thrive in Portland, we make your process as simple and comfortable as possible.

Laser hair removal, there really is no comparison.

Early professional hair removal treatments were done using electrical current. The electrolysis procedure was not only lengthy but also potentially uncomfortable. While discomfort is subjective based on each individual’s tolerance level, there is no denying the benefit of treating multiple follicles simultaneously versus just one at a time, as is done with electrolysis.

Today, laser hair removal is the standard treatment for smooth, hair free skin. This process directs precise wavelengths of light into hundreds of hair follicles using short bursts for improved comfort. The light that is absorbed by pigment in hair quickly transfers to surrounding tissues as heat. The result is that the hair follicle is disabled, incapable of producing hair. Several appointments are necessary to achieve lasting results, with benefits that include:

  • Permanent hair reduction. Many people maintain their results with annual touch-up treatments.
  • Healthier, more attractive skin that has no bumps, redness, stubble, or shadow.
  • Greater satisfaction and confidence.

Laser hair removal is a streamlined procedure that gives you immediate results. After each treatment, you can quickly return to normal activities, being mindful to apply sunscreen and appropriate moisturizers to prevent irritation. Subsequent appointments are scheduled a few weeks apart. Each will target hair that is in the active growth phase.

The team at Thrive enjoys helping our patients age beautifully! To learn more about our laser hair removal services, schedule your consultation in our friendly Portland office. Call (503) 928-6505 today.
