Avoiding a Hairy Situation
No matter your age, excess hair growth in all the places where you don’t want it can be uncomfortable and unattractive. You don’t want your self-esteem to slide down a slippery slope because you’re a woman with upper lip hair or a man with too much hair on your back. People that suffer from excess hair growth may be embarrassed by their condition, but they don’t have to be. Hinsdale laser hair removal expert Dr. Christina Steil of Steil Dermatology provides insight as to how you can conquer your problem in order to avoid a hairy situation, literally.
Young girls may suffer from seemingly unmanageable upper lip hair growth. Older women may have inconsistent and unruly hormonal hair problems, like dark, coarse hairs underneath the chin. When these patients choose Hinsdale laser hair removal, there are many different lasers that can be used by the doctor during the procedure. The general rule is that people cannot be tanned and the hair has to be dark. These are the best candidates for the procedure – those with lighter skin and darker hair. Dr. Steil is such a professional that she firmly believes that if a potential client could better be served by a dermatologist with more appropriate lasers – suitable for African American skin, for example – then she will refer the patient elsewhere. She will choose the care plan that is most appropriate for the patient, and this means not hesitating to refer the patient to a colleague.
Hinsdale laser hair removal is so common now that people don’t question its efficacy. The standard course of treatment involves 6 to 12 visits, with about one month between each visit. They call it significant hair reduction. The likelihood is that on the armpits, bikini areas, and legs, the hair won’t return again. But with hormonally dependent areas, like the back for men or the chin and the cheeks for women, people may need occasional touch ups. The hair will be thinner and grow slower, but it still may require attention.
In preparation for your Hinsdale laser hair removal procedure, you should not tan, wax, or pluck the area that will be worked on. But Dr. Steil does recommend that you shave it the day before your treatment. As Hinsdale laser hair removal isn’t invasive, the side effects are very limited and the recovery will be as smooth as your skin.
