Ok so you know someone, you are someone, or you’ve seen someone who sports excessive unwanted hair in the manner of an overgrown creature from a B-grade fright flick. It’s not only men that can suffer from excessive unwanted hair, but women as well. 30000 years before there were New York laser hair removal centers, Manhattan natives were most probably far hairier than they are now, but times change….slowly. It was still as recently as 1977 that Saturday Night Fever showed us how sexy a hairy chested man could be, “not that there’s anything wrong with that”.
Today we all still have body hair to varying degrees, but for an increasing number, it seems to be far more fashionable to have the sleek smooth hairless look. The caveman (I just came back from a big hunt and I’m sweating) look seems to be on the decline…
So maybe you live in Manhattan, you’re a successful professional with back hair and maybe you’re comfortable not being as smooth as a dolphin. On the other hand you might be the type who doesn’t want to take your shag carpet to the gym and unleash it on the beautiful fashionistas and you’re looking for the best New York laser hair removal options. Likewise, maybe you’re an aerobics instructor in a swank uptown gym and you’re tired of waxing or shaving to keep the Amazon rainforest in check and you want to find out more about laser hair removal New York style? Whatever you case is, here is a brief introduction to permanent hair removal by laser and how laser hair removal works.
In a nutshell laser hair removal works by using special types and frequencies of laser light to destroy hair follicles. The process works because the laser light targets melanin, which is the pigment in hair follicles. Laser light heats up the melanin destroying structures in the follicle without damaging surrounding tissue.
Various types of lasers are used in the process and may include the Nd:Yag CoolGlide laser and the GentleLase alexandrite laser.
Laser hair removal is generally regarded as a hair reduction technique and usually takes several treatments to get best results. This is because the hair follicles must be treated when they are in their growth phase. As hair grows in cycles, typically only 30% of hair cells will be growing at any time. Darker course hair tends to respond best, with blonde and red hair generally not responding as well to treatment.
Costs of using New York laser hair removal centers don’t tend to be any higher than any other cities in the U.S. Prices will depend on what area you are getting treated and more importantly the size of the area. Keep in mind that several laser treatments will probably be needed on most areas and thus the cost can multiply too.
Whether it’s on men or women: leg hair, back hair, chest, arm, and bikini or just about anywhere else, laser hair removal seems to be the way of the future.
There are plenty of New York laser hair removal clinics and many in Manhattan. The best bet is to hit the web for as much information as possible and start hunting to find a reputable center, and check their qualifications and history.
Here’s to being dolphin smooth!
