Fighting Unwanted Body Hair with Laser Hair Removal in Kent

Summer is a time for sun, fun and flirty summer dresses, but the change in temperature and attire means that many of us feel the pressure to step up our body hair maintenance. Rough, stubbly legs in our best summer shorts is not a good look, so it’s not surprising that many of us will take extensive measures in pursuit of a smooth body. Shaving and waxing provides people with instantaneous results, but it often leaves people feeling like a slave to their upkeep. If you are sick of constant body hair maintenance then there is a solution – laser hair removal. The treatment is available at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic, and the clinic’s experts are here to explain why laser hair removal in Kent really is an effective solution to your body hair.

 
Laser hair removal is a pretty self-explanatory treatment; it’s a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that give patients a long term solution to their unwanted body hair by effectively destroying the hair follicles. The treatment achieves this result by penetrating the hair with light energy beams. These beams effectively use the pigmentation within the hair to travel through the hair and destroy the follicle, resulting in a long term solution to unwanted body hair.

 
We asked Dr. Alice Hudson Peacock why she felt laser hair removal in Kent was such an effective solution to unwanted body hair. She said:

 
“There are many reasons why laser hair removal makes an effective solution to unwanted body hair. For one, laser hair removal gives patients a long term solution to their unwanted hair – something that many other forms of body hair removal treatments cannot provide. This is a big plus for the treatment as it means patients can gain the results they want, without the need to continue with constant top-ups. ”

 
“In addition to this, laser hair removal in our Kent-based clinic is a great solution to unwanted body hair as it gives patients a time-efficient option; a session of laser hair removal can be performed in just 30 minutes and requires little recovery time, making it the perfect choice for patients with busy lifestyles.”

 
Laser hair removal treatment does come with benefits, but it’s important that patients are knowledgeable on the treatment as a whole, which means not only understanding the benefits of the treatment, but also the risks and potential side-effects.

 
Patients should be aware when considering laser hair removal that the treatment has varying levels of results, predominantly depending on the patient’s hair colour. As the treatment relies on the pigmentation within the hair to destroy the follicle, patients with darker hair may gain a more effective result. This is something those with lighter hair colours should carefully consider when weighing up laser hair treatment.

 
Another element consider about laser hair removal is who will perform your treatment. Putting your treatment in the right hands is vital to achieving an effective and safe result. To explain this, Dr. Hudson-Peacock said:

 
“When seeking any form of cosmetic treatment it’s important to do your research on potential providers, and this is no different with laser hair removal. Patients should always undergo treatment with an experienced and fully qualified cosmetic professional. There are many ways that you can check the credibility of a practitioner. For example, reading their patient’s testimonials can be a great way to hear more about their service, and a consultation can also help you learn more about the practitioner and their working style.”
