Say Goodbye to Unwanted Hair

Picture this: You’ve packed a cooler full of your favorite drinks. You and your friends pull up to the beach, find a spot, lay down the towels and get ready for some fun in the sun. That’s when you remember that you forgot to shave. Your beach day just turned into a nightmare — one that could have been avoided.

Yes, it’s that time again. Time for shorts, flip-flops, bathing suits and tank tops. It’s time to show some skin! But where there’s skin, there’s hair. Don’t let unwanted hair get the best of you this beach season. There’s no reason to stay at home because you’re embarrassed by unwanted hair.

At Open Water Medical, our specialists can give you a long-lasting solution to your beach-body woes with CynoSure® Icon™ laser hair removal.

What happens during laser hair removal treatment?

These treatments are the ideal alternative for anyone who is tired of tweezing, waxing or cutting themselves with a razor. Laser hair removal is painless, and all you’ll feel is a light, warm sensation. But the Advanced Contact Cooling System™ will help cool your skin during the process. If you have sensitive skin, our specialists can apply a light numbing cream that will cool your skin during the process.

Where on my body can I get laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be done in several places on your body. With laser hair removal, you can say goodbye to unwanted hair on your legs, underarms, bikini area, back, chest or arms. Facial hair removal is even possible for the upper lip or mustache area.

How does it all work?

The science of hair removal is quite fascinating. Essentially what you’re doing is destroying the follicles of hair under your skin to prevent them from producing hair. At any given time your body hair is in one of three stages: the growth stage, resting stage, or preparing to shed stage. Laser hair removal is most effective during the first phase because your hair is actively growing from its follicle.

Since each individual hair follicle is not in the active growth stage at the same time, it’s recommended that you get a series of laser treatments spaced out over a few weeks. This ensures that you’ll be looking beach-ready all year long instead of just a week, like with tweezing or shaving.

Is laser hair removal dangerous?

It’s natural to be a little bit wary of laser hair removal. You’ll no doubt have several questions about the process and might be feeling a bit overwhelmed. This feeling is natural, and there’s really no need to fear.

Multiple consultations will reassure you that our specialists are some of the best in the business, and they’re always ready to answer any questions you may have before, during or after the procedure.

So give us a call or schedule an appointment online today at one of our three locations in North Carolina to make sure you stay carefree and hair-free! This summer you’ll be able to go anywhere when your friends hit you up for that impromptu outdoor excursion.

At Open Water Medical, we’ll give you the power to look better and feel better come beach season.
