What do you do about those pesky hairs constantly popping up on your breast and nipple area? While some men aren't bothered by it, most women are. If you've decided to get rid of your nipple hair, you need to go about it safely. The area is extremely sensitive and has a lot of nerve endings.
By now, you probably know how ineffective shaving is, so that's out. What about waxing? Besides setting you up for ingrown hairs and irritation, waxing may cause painful burns. Electrolysis isn't a great option either, since it can lead to unsightly scarring. Tweezing only works if it's just 1 or two unruly hairs. If you have more than that, you can also rule out tweezing. This leaves you with only one effective and safe option: laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is the best way to achieve the hair-free and silky smooth breast skin you have always desired.
Human beings have hair follicles all over their body. In fact, those tiny bumps around your nipples are hair follicles. Furthermore, many women experience breast hair on their areolae (that pigmented circles around your nipple).
So it's totally normal to have hair in this area if you do. The underlying causes that lead to the growth of nipple hairs are a common occurrence., which helps explain why hairy nipples are common. Some include:
Generally, hair on your breast isn't much cause for concern unless some other symptoms accompany it. If that's the case, talk to your doctor. They can determine whether something more serious is going on.
The laser targets the hair exclusively by focusing on the pigment cells that reside in the hair follicle. That light energy from the laser is absorbed by the melanin pigment and is then converted to heat, which permanently damages and destroys the hair follicles. Once the follicle is damaged, hair growth ceases. Laser hair removal targets hairs that are in their active growth phase. This means it's essential to attend all your appointments because your hair follicles are all at different stages of their growth. Hence, you want to make sure each hair has a chance to get lasered.
Due to recent advancements in laser technology, the treatment can safely banish all breast hair without causing any significant side effects or injuries. The laser will not hurt or damage your delicate skin, nor will it leave any marks.
Some potential minor side effects including itching, redness, and swelling around the treatment area. These side effects rarely last more than two or three days. That said, it's important to make sure the person doing your laser hair removal is experienced and suitably qualified.
How about pain? We'll be honest. The process isn't exactly enjoyable. Laser treatment is often compared to the sensation of flicking a rubber band on your skin repeatedly.
Comfortable? Not really. Tolerable for most patients? Yes. Suppose you have a low tolerance for pain. In that case, we can use a topical anaesthetic or numbing cream to make the procedure even more tolerable.
The exact number of treatment sessions and the period gap between them greatly depend on the following factors:
But generally speaking, laser hair removal permanently removes about 80 to 90% of breast hair after a complete treatment series of five to six sessions. Remember, this success rate can only be achieved after the required number of laser hair treatment sessions.
If you've previously undergone breast implant surgery and are worried that laser hair removal will affect your implants, don't be. The laser is not powerful enough to penetrate beyond your skin's upper layers to reach deeper tissues. Even if it could, the laser wouldn't do anything to them due to the way this specific laser works.
Baring your skin isn't always the easiest thing to do, especially in more intimate parts like the bikini area and breasts. But rest assured, you have no reason to feel self-conscious. We treat numerous patients daily and never pass judgment on one's appearance. Just the opposite, we commend you for choosing to remove nipple hair that's interfering with your aesthetic goals.
