6 Tips for Laser Hair Removal Success

June 04,2014 | Posted by: cmc-dashboard

Laser hair removal is helping millions of men and women free themselves from unwanted facial and body hair. At The Cosmetic Medicine Centre, we’re achieving marvellous results with the Depilatory Service Laser (DSL), and in this post we’ll explain why.

Unwanted Hair is Everywhere

Hair. On a woman’s head, it’s her crowning glory. On her chin, it’s a source of embarrassment. The same thing is true for men who feel uncomfortable about unwanted hair on places such as their back or ears.

Because there is so much unwanted hair in the world, there are also lots of ways to get rid of it. Unfortunately, remedies such as waxing, plucking, shaving and depilatory creams provide only temporary relief. They also cause skin irritation, ingrown hairs and other problems. 

Electrolysis offers a more lasting solution, but is very slow and quite painful and may produce scarring.

How Lasers Reduce Unwanted Hair

The Cosmetic Medicine Centre’s Depilatory Service Laser (DSL) is an effective way of reducing unwanted hair that is less painful than other approaches. DSL treatments are based on a proven technology that combines light, electrical energy and cooling to combat hair growth by targeting the hair roots and cooling to protect the surface of the skin.
