Austin, TX, January 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Each year, millions of men and women look for pain-free ways to remove unwanted hair from their bodies. As a result, laser hair removal treatments are among the most popular aesthetic procedures in the United States today.
Austin plastic surgeon, Dr. Jennifer Walden, is pleased to offer laser hair removal treatments at her Texas-based practice. "Laser hair removal is a quick and easy method of removing unwanted body hair," Dr. Walden says—adding that its continued popularity, especially among women, has made it a tried and true procedure for many years.
Laser hair removal procedures use an energy beam, which passes through skin and is attracted to the pigment of hair. Dr. Walden explains, "The heat energy is then absorbed by actively growing hair follicles. Once the energy is completely absorbed by the hair follicle, the follicle will stop growing." Underarms, upper lip, chin, bikini zone, and legs are some of the popular areas treated.
Dr. Walden and her staff use the innovative BBL™ (BroadBand Light) System to precisely treat the appearance of unwanted hair in targeted areas. An extension of the Sciton JOULE laser platform, the BBL™ module provides patients with the most comfortable hair removal treatment possible. According to Dr. Walden, laser hair removal can be performed on almost any area of the body. During treatment, the patient's eyes will be covered with safety shields of glasses. Treatment using the BBL™ System is a safe and effective in the hands of trained professionals. It usually takes just a few minutes to a half an hour to complete, depending on the size of the area targeted for treatment. We customize treatments based on the patient's specific needs and desires.
Laser hair removal treatments respond better to darker hair follicles, so these treatments should not be sought for bone or very light-colored hairs. Patients who are taking light-sensitive medication are also not considered good candidates for this procedure, since some medications can interfere with the laser procedure, and make the skin more susceptible to burning or scarring.
Dr. Walden adds that patients may experience some redness or skin discoloration following treatment, although the procedure is generally comfortable and painless. According to Dr. Walden, the procedure does not require any downtime, so patients can resume their normal activities almost immediately. Any patient who is interested in learning more about laser hair removal treatments should contact Dr. Walden's office today.
