Basically just amplified light, lasers have permeated our lives in many varied ways since the first one was built over 50 years ago. From the laser beam that “reads” the CDs and DVDs we use to entertain ourselves, to the lasers that make non-invasive medical surgery possible, every day it seems that lasers are being used to improve our lives in new ways.
Lasers Help Make You Look Your Best
While spas for rest, rejuvenation and beauty have been around for thousands of years, they are now taking advantage of the many applications of lasers to improve the services they provide.
Generally speaking, lasers help improve some traditional spa services by performing them faster and/or by making them either more effective and/or less painful.
Lasers have been used to improve two main spa services;
Laser Hair Removal
Men and women alike have for centuries wanted to remove unwanted hair for aesthetic and health reasons. Until the arrival of lasers, hair removal processes could be painful or somewhat dangerous.Plucking hair is an age-old process of painfully pulling out one hair at a time. The chemical in depilatory creams are actually designed to dissolve the hair shaft – and incorrect use can actually burn your skin.
By contrast, laser hair removal is relatively painless, requires fewer treatments and is more consistent than most other types of hair removal.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
Compared to surgical procedures, which are far more expensive, painful and can involve many days of recovery, fractional laser skin resurfacing can deliver noticeable results without all the difficulties. Designed to improve the appearance of wrinkles, melisma, acne scars, surgical scars and stretch marks, laser resurfacing can be used on any area of the body.
If you are interested in putting lasers to work to make you look your best, be sure you use a spa with up-to-date equipment and trained technicians so you enjoy the full benefit.
