Ditch the razor and get smooth, hair-free skin with laser hair removal.
Conventional hair removal strategies, such as waxing, shaving, and depilatories, can be inconvenient and messy. Rid yourself of unwanted hair for good with permanent hair removal at ReShape LLC in Mooresville, North Carolina. We can help you get the smooth, hair-free skin you desire!
Laser hair removal permanently destroys hair follicles so hair can’t grow. The energy of the laser is delivered into the follicles, where pigment absorbs the light. This effectively destroys the follicles’ ability to produce hair. We can apply laser hair removal to nearly anywhere you have unwanted hair. This includes your:
- Bikini area
- Back and chest
Most people feel warming and a slight snapping sensation — like a rubber band hitting the skin — during laser hair removal sessions. The sensations are quite tolerable, and you likely won’t need a topical anesthetic or numbing cream. If you’re concerned, talk to us about options for relieving any discomfort.
Avoid waxing and plucking hair for about six weeks prior to laser hair removal, as you shouldn’t remove the hairs’ roots, which are targeted by the laser’s energy. Tanned skin doesn’t respond as well to laser hair removal, so avoid sun exposure as much as possible six weeks before a session. And because the process makes skin temporarily more sensitive to the sun’s rays, try to avoid sun exposure to that area for six weeks after the procedure as well.
