Reaching for the razor may be your first instinct when it comes to getting rid of unwanted hair on your body. However, traditional shaving methods are far from comfortable. Razor burn and irritation are common issues that can be experienced after shaving. Thankfully, alternatives do exist and we’re happy to provide one at Compassion Medical Wellness Centre. If you struggle with unwanted hair, our XEO® Laser Hair Removal system could be an excellent choice. To learn more, we welcome you to schedule a consultation here at our Edmonton, Alberta office.
What Causes Unwanted Hair?
Genetics and hormone levels are the primary factors responsible for the amount of hair you have on your body. Specifically, androgens are hormones that control the density of body hair after we reach puberty and are more active in men. The more androgens you have, the thicker, darker, and more visible your hair will be. For those who have sensitive skin, having an excessive amount of body hair can cause quite a bit of skin irritation. At Compassion Medical Wellness Centre, we provide a laser hair reduction treatment that can effectively eliminate unwanted body hair without aggressive irritation.
What Are the Signs?
Along with having too much hair, you may also experience ingrown hairs, blackheads, and redness, especially if you have sensitive skin. Hair regrowth after shaving can be especially itchy and uncomfortable if your skin is prone to dryness. If shaving causes you discomfort, our XEO® laser hair removal treatment may be just the right choice for you. Treatments with this device are performed with precision and care to ensure you get the great results you want without downtime.
How Do We Remove Unwanted Hair?
Our XEO® Laser Hair Removal system features an attachment called ProWave LX™. This specialized device has proven to be more effective than intense pulsed light treatments in reducing hair quantity. Thanks to the ProWave LX™, even light, and fine hair removal is easily possible with greater targeting capabilities. This system offers fast, comfortable hair removal for better outcomes, even on small regions of hair. To learn more about this system, connect with our Edmonton office today.
