A lot of people are having problems of hair overgrowth or perhaps just don't have the time to shave all the different parts of their bodies. For people who cannot stand the overindulgence of hair in their body, should seriously think about undergoing laser hair removal treatment.
The ultimate good thing about laser hair removal treatment is that you will successfully get rid of all the excess hair in your body with minimum discomfort. The treatment usually doesn't take long and it's not even necessary to go to a hospital for the treatment. Most beauty salons now offer laser treatments so ask them next time you visit them.
There are at least four types of laser lights that doctors commonly recommend and use in laser hair removal treatments. Namely The Alexandrite, The Ruby, The Diode and The ND and LP ND Yag or the Candela Gentle Yag which is considered as one of the safest when it comes to laser hair removal.
Technically speaking, laser hair removal treatments work by sending out laser light to the hair follicles and thus destroying the roots of the hair. Dermatologists use just a sufficient amount of laser light to destroy the hair follicles without really harming the surrounding tissues. Once the roots of the hair are being destroyed, the hair usually doesn’t grow again. But in some cases, the hair does grow back again except that the grain of the hair is now finer and would not really look as ugly as it used to be.
In order to find the hair follicles, the dermatologists typically focus on the dark color of the hair to guide them. Consequently, the laser beam is then being targeted on the dark colored portions in the skin of the person. Since laser hair removal treatment relies very much on the difference between the colors of the skin and the hair of the person, not all persons would qualify for all hair removal treatments.
Even though a lot of people in South Africa complain about the excessive growth of hair over their bodies, actually only very few people would go to the clinic and ask for a laser hair removal treatment. According to studies, the leading factor that often deters the patient from seeking help about his or her hair growth problem, is that he or she is fearful that the treatment will cost him or her, a fortune.
Fortunately, the charge of laser hair removal is not really that crazy after all. Yip. Make no mistake, the cost of laser hair removal in some areas of the country could be higher but the thing is, if you truly want to get rid of those unsightly hairs in the different parts of your body, you just have to pay the price. The cost of the laser hair removal treatment very much depends on the amount of work that needs to be done. Different people have their own different circumstances so there is a big possibility that the cost of laser hair removal treatment would vary from person to person. So the best way for you to find out how much the treatment could cost you is for you to visit a laser hair removal treatment clinic and request an assessment of your situation.
So when visiting the clinic for an assessment, it would be an excellent idea for you to just ask the doctor or person who is helping you about the different types of treatment packages that the clinic is offering. Usually, clinics would offer some treatment packages for those complete hair removal treatment packages where you can visit the clinic as many times as required for a smaller fee.
Regrettably, most insurance companies and medical aids do not cover the cost of laser hair removal treatment. In view of the fact that laser hair removal treatment is usually treated as cosmetic surgery, you will have to pay the cost of the laser hair removal treatment from your own pockets. Good luck with your next treatment and let us know how your experience was.
