How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Most people list removing unwanted hair as the most unpleasant part of their grooming routines. It’s time consuming, can be painful, and is often expensive. If you’re tired of shaving, plucking, waxing, or using smelly depilatory creams, perhaps it’s time for laser hair removal with Baltic Beauty Centre’s cutting-edge laser hair removal technology. Say goodbye to unwanted hair and hello to silky smooth skin.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Your hair exists in three stages of growth, active, transition, and dormancy. The more follicles you have in the active growth phase, the more hairy your appearance. If this distresses you, laser hair removal at Baltic Beauty Centre can help. Our expert laser hair removal technicians can remove hair on the legs, chest, back, bikini line, underarms, and face. The laser energy targets only the hair follicle, leaving the skin surrounding it undamaged, so the treatment itself is extremely safe. The follicle absorbs the laser energy and is damaged, resulting in shedding. With each treatment, you will reduce your unwanted hair by as much as 30%!
Because the dormant follicles will then transition into the active phase, you’ll need more than a single session to fully remove your unwanted hair. With each treatment, more of your active follicles are targeted, and there are fewer dormant follicles to take their place. We recommend scheduling a treatment every 4-8 weeks. Because it’s best to avoid sunlight after laser treatments, the winter time is the best time to have laser hair removal, when the sun is weakest and clothes offer more coverage.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for laser hair removal is someone who is tired of the endless chore of removing unwanted hair, wants to save money in the long run on shaving supplies and salon services, and is not pregnant or breastfeeding. Those who have heavier hair growth due to high levels of testosterone will find the treatment ineffective. Patients with darker hair also see more success than those with blonde, gray, or silver hair. If you’re ready for smooth, hair-free skin, schedule a consultation with Baltic Beauty Centre to get started.
What is Laser Hair Removal Like?
Laser hair removal has come a long way since its inception, both in terms of patient comfort and effectiveness. The size of your treatment area, as well as the coarseness and color of your hair will determine session length as well as frequency, but for most patients, your appointment will last between 10-45 minutes. The laser targets the hair, not your tissues, but it can feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin. The redness and irritation that are possible, however, resolve within a few hours. Shedding is cumulative, so each session, between 6-8 on average, results in fewer hairs to target until eventually, most of your unwanted hair stops growing.

What Results Can I Expect?
It is possible for new hair follicles to generate after about a year, but these tend to be sparse, thin, and easily treated with a further laser hair removal session or two. Your hair begins to shed 1-2 weeks following your first treatment and continues throughout your treatment plan. Each session results in 15%-30% reduction in follicles, and these results are long lasting, leaving behind smooth, hair-free skin.
Throw away your razors and cancel your waxing appointments. Your Baltic Beauty Centre laser specialist can take care of any unwanted hair you have, so bare your skin with confidence knowing it’s silky, smooth, and hair-free. What have you got to lose besides the hair?
