Style queen Victoria Beckham recently revealed just one of her grooming tips, and it something that you don’t need to have her millions to do.
She spoke in an Allure magazine about ditching her razor and switching to laser to keep her legs permanently free of fuzz. Speaking about how she keeps herself looking good as a busy mother and businesswomen, Victoria explained that her friend Eva Longoria had given her the tip about the effectiveness of laser hair removal, and that she hasn’t looked back since.
“You can go for touch-ups if you do see little hairs appearing but I’ve been very lucky and I haven’t had to,” she said.
The Right Treatment for you
Laser hair removal has been around for some time, but making sure you get the treatment that’s right for you; using medical grade lasers operated by trained technicians, is important.
Cosmetic Doctor in Dublin have a laser suite with a variety of different laser types, and Dr. Lisa Fay will ensure every client gets a consultation before embarking on a course of treatment to ensure the best results.
Many laser providers cannot treat blonde, red or grey hair, as most lasers need to find the dark pigment (melanin) in the hair shaft before they can destroy the hair follicle.
At Cosmetic Doctor, the laser suite has the NDYAG laser which is gentle but effective on lighter hair colours, as well as darker skin types. The colour of your hair and the tone of your skin must be taken into consideration prior to using any laser, so going to a doctor-led clinic like Cosmetic Doctor offers peace of mind.
If you’re looking for a permanent way to banish unwanted hair laser treatments could be for you.
Facts about Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can be used anywhere on the body, except near the eyes, including upper lip, face, neck, chest, bikini line, underarms, legs and stomach.
The laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle so your skin colour and hair type are crucial when deciding which type of laser is best for you.
People with dark hair and light skin are easiest to treat but the lower the contrast between the two, for example, ash blonde hair with pale skin, the harder it is to get good results.
There are many different lasers in use and each one is suitable for a particular skin type and hair colour.
You’ll need a course of treatments spread out over a period of time to remove hair totally, depending on the size of the area to be treated and how coarse it is. This is because laser only works on hair that is in the growth phase of its natural cycle, and not all of your hair is in the same phase at the same time.
