Gresham Locals Receive The Best Laser Hair Removal At Laser Smooth Company

When you’re ready to give up shaving and waxing for good, you’re ready for laser hair removal in Gresham! Laser Smooth Company offers top-notch laser hair removal services in Gresham, and we’re eager to help all of our Gresham customers get the body hair reduction they want. How does laser hair removal work? Laser hair removal is a hair removal procedure that uses pulses of light to destroy hair follicles and prevents them from growing back. Since hair grows in cycles, to completely eliminate hair growth, 6-8 treatments (at intervals of 8-12 weeks) are needed to achieve the desired result. This is the only method of hair removal that offers permanent results and is an effective and cost-efficient alternative to waxing and shaving.

What Are The Possible Side Effects Of Laser Hair Removal?

Gresham customers often wonder about the potential side effects of laser hair removal. Good news! The most common side effects of laser hair removal are both minor and temporary. Some people experience temporary side effects in the form of itching, redness lasting for up to three days, swelling around the mouth of the follicle for up to three days, and tingling or a feeling of numbness.

There are some rare side effects that are indicative of inappropriate laser type, settings, or failure to follow pre/post-care instructions. These side effects include crusting or scab formation, bruising, purpura (purple coloring of the skin), temporary pigment change in the skin (hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation). In order to avoid these side effects, Gresham customers seeking laser hair removal should closely follow the pre/post-care instructions that are given to you by your laser technician.
