However, she’s also been asked about the process itself and how it works. As such, she’s spoken out about each of these questions extensively and provided similar answers to almost everyone who asked.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is exactly what it sounds like, and uses a variety of light and energy lasers to get rid of any unwanted hairs. While the use of lasers may make some people worried, they shouldn’t be as the vast majority of treatments are completely safe. However, what many people may not know is that the process can also be used to reduce the thickness of hair in a certain area. The process works by targeting hair follicles in the active growth phase. This causes the hair follicle to break down over time and stop producing hair. As such, this will stop the treated area from growing hair after the treatment process. How long each treatment is, as well as how many treatments you need to get in a certain area, can depend highly on your needs and how hairy the area in question is. Because of that, Dr. Jennifer Walden or a professional will be able to speak with you about assessing your needs and crafting a treatment process based on that.
Who Can Get Laser Hair Removal?
Many people may believe that laser hair removal is only effective with certain people. However, it’s been shown that it can work wonders for anybody interested in having hair removed. As such, Dr. Jennifer Walden has worked with both men and women with a range of different skin colors. Furthermore, these clients have had a range of different needs and more. With that in mind, you’ll be able to get laser hair removal regardless of gender or skin color.
