How to Avoid Pregnancy Hair Removal Failures

There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding laser hair removal treatments. However, the horror stories circulating among pregnant women seem to be rampant.

Many seem to believe that going in for a laser hair removal treatment during pregnancy carries a greater risk of leaving scarring on the skin. This is just not true. Skilled technicians in laser clinics get to hear all types of wild and wonderful stories circulating, so it is time to put some of them to rest.

Rapid Regrowth after Permanent Hair Removal

One of the biggest problems some pregnant women may face is that they may experience some hair regrowth. After spending money on permanent laser hair removal treatments, women expect the hair will not grow back.

Yet when you are pregnant, the hormones within your body change. Those hormonal changes can trigger hair regrowth, even if you have had a laser hair removal treatment. Rather than think your laser treatments are not working, remember that your body is going through significant changes while your baby is growing.

Once you have given birth, you can book in with your laser clinic and have a touch up treatment done. You should find that unwanted body hair will be easily controllable again once your hormones settle down.

New Hair Growth in Unusual Places

Another issue many pregnant women struggle with is growing body hair in places it never grew before. A prime example of this is sprouting hair under the chin and along the neck line.

Again, the hormones at work in your body will be responsible for a large amount of new body hair growth. Some women consider using depilatory creams to keep any new hairs under control or even plucking them out during their pregnancy. But these creams are not recommended for pregnant women. Try to avoid shaving also if you can, as the stubble regrowth can look even worse than the hairs you are trying to remove.

The best hair removal treatment during pregnancy is laser treatment. It is safe for pregnant women unlike other hair removal methods such as bleaching and with the use of hair removal creams.

Fertility Worries

Some people fear that having laser hair removal treatment anywhere near their ovaries or around their genitalia might affect their fertility levels. It is important to keep in mind that there is no actual scientific evidence that the laser treatments used for body hair removal penetrate deeply enough through all your skin, tissue, muscle and fat layers to affect your fertility levels.

Believe it or not, the people who work at your local skin laser clinic also hear this question from men as well as women. There are some men who are quite keen on the idea of ‘man-scaping’. Opting for laser treatment for men’s hair removal around the genital area sometimes sparks worry about affecting their own fertility levels too. The lasers used will not affect a man’s ‘swimmers’, so body hair removal is safe for men or women.

If you are concerned about the effects of laser hair removal treatments before, during, or after your pregnancy, take the time to book a consultation with a professional laser clinic. The technicians at Laser by Sia will be able to answer all your questions and ease your worries. We will take the time to sit with you and discuss all your options properly before any course of treatment is decided.

What Are the Most Popular Laser Hair Removal Treatments?

The vast majority of people who think about laser hair removal treatments automatically think about eliminating unwanted body hair from around the bikini line. While a little landscaping around the bikini line is a great way to keep skin hair-free and silky smooth, there are also plenty of other areas where laser hair removal treatments can be equally as effective.

Here are some of the most popular laser hair removal treatments requested by clients at most laser clinics:

Underarm Hair Removal

Australian women prefer the clean shaven look of hairless underarms. Unfortunately, shaving daily can leave ugly stubbles or result in a five-o-clock shadow as it grows right back again. There is also the discomfort of nicking or cutting the skin as you shave, which can be painful. A skin laser clinic can help to eliminate growth of hair under your armpits with permanent laser hair removal.

Facial Hair Removal

Men grow up with the awareness that they are expected to shave their faces daily to maintain that smooth clean-shaven look. However, plenty of women also experience facial hair growth too.

For women, sprouting a few random whiskers under the chin or on the sides of your jaw can be embarrassing, leading many to use depilatory creams or even resort to shaving to get rid of that growth. Laser clinics offer quick and painless facial hair removal treatments for both men and women that can be almost permanent.

Body Hair Removal

Another popular laser hair removal treatment requested at many clinics is for larger sections of body hair removal. Some women struggle to keep legs silky smooth, especially if they experience thick, dark hair growth. Likewise, many men feel self-conscious about having excessive hair growth on their chest, back, or shoulders.

Permanent hair removal treatments can be ideal for larger sections where body hair needs to be eliminated, as treatments are quick and painless, but the results are extremely long-lasting.

Hair Removal for Sensitive Areas

One of the more popular laser treatments requested is also one of the least frequently discussed. Many people book consultations with laser hair removal clinics to ask discreet questions about removing hair from areas they are embarrassed about.

For some women, it may be permanently removing hair growing around the nipples or in a snail-trail down the stomach from the belly button. Men’s hair removal problems often stem from embarrassing hair growth on the ears that cannot be controlled by regular plucking or waxing.

Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Treatment

The laser treatment that has grown enormously in popularity in recent years is the Brazilian laser hair removal treatment. More women are making the change to removing all their pubic hair to be completely hair-free. Trying to achieve a silky smooth appearance with waxing or shaving is almost impossible, but laser treatments make it much easier to maintain that clean, smooth look over the long term.

Regardless of where you need to remove unwanted body hair, the benefits of laser hair removal treatments are enormous. The procedure is quick and easy and does not involve the pain endured with waxing. What’s more, the results are long-lasting with most clients achieving permanent hair removal after a few short sessions.

What to Expect in a Laser Hair Removal Treatment

A wide variety of laser hair removal treatment options are available for that unwanted hair you just cannot wait to get rid of. It’s the tufts of growth coming out of your ears, the strands hanging from your nose, the patches on your back, your knuckles and everywhere else you would like smooth skin and smooth skin only. For those that want hair removed, the process may sound enticing; but it may also seem a little bit frightening. To ease your fears and to encourage you to try this simple procedure, here are some of the things that you can expect with the latest in hair removal services.

For Hair that Grows Anywhere

From facial hair removal to full body hair removal, there is no hairy spot on your body that permanent laser hair removal cannot help you with. Women can have their faces, legs, noses, chins, ears, breasts, underarms, stomachs, and nether-regions treated until they are smooth to the touch; and men can have their backs, chests, arms, buttocks, and genitals treated if they have unwanted hair they want to get rid of. Hair tends to grow in a lot of places for both sexes, especially as we get older. You can shave it, trim it, wax it, or pull it; but only laser therapy will get rid of those pesky hairs for good.

Comfort First

The first thing you will have to do is to look for a skin laser clinic that has qualified technicians and the latest laser technology. Laser by Sia offers these at any of their laser clinics in Sydney CBD, Bondi Junction, and Castle Hill. Once you have chosen a skin laser clinic, you are ready to come in for your first appointment. The technician will first ensure that you are completely comfortable and prepared for the treatment or treatments you have chosen. Everything will be explained to you and all of your worries will be laid to rest before the technician begins.

The treatment will then commence as the technician applies a high-frequency laser to the hair-growth areas that penetrates the skin and eradicates the hair at the roots. Laser by Sia uses Candela Alexandrite lasers which emit a single, exact wavelength that targets the melanin in the hair and damages the follicles. Unlike other hair removal methods, damaging the follicles will render them unable to support regrowth.

With laser hair removal treatment, there is no downtime and, in fact, you can have your treatments completed on your lunch break. Treatment on small areas usually takes only 5 minutes while larger areas may take 15 to 30 minutes. We offer an inviting clinical environment, professional staff that is always glad to see you, and prices that will not empty your wallets. We want you to feel good about yourself and for that reason we offer an entire line of laser treatments, as well as other treatments like cellulite removal, teeth whitening, injectables, fillers, and more.

When you consider the money you will save and the frustration you will keep at bay by finally experiencing hair removal that does not hurt, pull, pinch, or leave painful rashes, you owe it to yourself to schedule an appointment for laser treatments at Laser by Sia. We are always glad to hear from you and cannot wait to see you in our office.
