For many women, excess body hair can be a real and debilitating issue, and something that can completely knock their self-esteem. It can even cause them to choose to cover up their bodies even in the heat.
For some women, this problem body hair can simply be an issue because it is darker and, therefore more obvious. However, there are a number of medical issues that can result in excess body hair, and this can appear not just on the legs but also on the face and arms. Hirsutism is one of these medical conditions that can result in the presence of excess hair on the body or face. This often coarse and, therefore more visible hair, follows a male-like pattern. It is estimated that between 5-15% of women are affected by hirsutism, which is a sign of an underlying excess of male hormones; androgens.
Hirsutism is a symptom of conditions like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). However, because the symptoms of PCOS vary from one woman to another, it is not known exactly how many individuals in the UK are affected. It is believed that at least 1 in 10 women in the UK have PCOS in one form or another.
Just as women can struggle with unwanted and excess hair, so too can men, and laser hair removal treatments are suitable for both men and women who want to get rid of excess hair and feel more comfortable in their own skin.
What is Soprano Laser Hair Removal laser treatment?
Whilst laser hair removal treatment sounds like it might be a painful treatment, it really is no more painful than other forms of hair removal, such as electrolysis. Some individuals do not feel anything during the treatment, whilst others just describe it as being a minor discomfort. If you have ever had waxing or threading to help remove some of your unwanted body hair, then you will be pleased to know that laser hair removal is much less painful than either of these two popular, temporary hair removal choices.
The process works by emitting a beam of energy that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This pigment is called melanin. The energy travels to the root of each individual hair, where it destroys it, and this results in the permanent removal of each hair.
In order for the laser to be most effective, it is necessary for the hair to be lasered when it is in the active stage of its growth. Doing laser treatment at this point in the growth of hair can help to prevent it from regrowing. Unfortunately, hairs in any one area of the face or body will be in different stages of growth when treatment takes place. This is natural, and for this reason, it is recommended that a person has a number of laser sessions with 4-6 week intervals. This is in order to target the hairs when they are at the optimum level of growth for the treatment to be most effective. When the treatments are spaced out like this the results are longer lasting and more likely to be permanent.
With each session of laser hair removal that an individual undertakes, the root of the hair becomes weaker, and the growth of the hair slows down. It is estimated that it can take between 2 to 3 weeks for the effects of treatment to be visible, and the first session of laser treatment can result in a reduction in the hair of between 10% to 25%.
Overall, laser hair removal can be very successful, and it is suggested that it will eliminate as much as 90% of the hair growth that it is targeting.
As well as leg laser treatments are there other places Soprano Laser Hair Removal can be used?
Laser hair treatment is suitable for most areas of the body, and does not need to be limited to only those areas that are smaller such as areas of the face.
It can be used on the face, underarms, legs, bikini area, back and chest. Many individuals actually opt for full-body laser treatment. This is because the procedure is much less painful than other options, results in smoother skin with much less chance of ingrown hairs, saves money in the long term and offers better results that last longer.
Whilst this type of treatment is suitable for both men and women, it is important to note that laser hair removal treatment does not work on hair that is blonde or grey as this does not have the dark pigment that is needed to make it suitable for laser treatment.
Will Soprano Laser Hair Removal on the legs work?
One worry that many people have about undergoing laser hair removal treatment is that they think that the laser might burn their skin. It is understandable that people might think this as the lasers that are used operate at high heat. There is a risk of burns as a result of this type of treatment. However, it is incredibly rare for there to be blisters or burns due to undergoing laser hair removal. The chances of this happening are so slight that there are no statistics available. In order to minimise the chances of having any adverse issues from laser hair treatment, it is important to use a practitioner who is experienced at what they do and has had all of the appropriate training. Burns as a result of laser hair removal treatment occur as a result of improper use of the laser machines that happen as a result of a lack of training and experience.
