Everyone knows that Clarify is the premier destination for San Antonio laser hair removal. Similarly, everyone knows that laser hair removal does, well, exactly what its name implies by using a laser to removal hair. That part seems to be pretty self-explanatory. However, did you know that, in addition to ridding yourself of pesky, troublesome hair, the laser energy that decimates hair follicles also improves the texture and appearance of your skin? It may sound crazy, but it’s true, laser hair removal offers degrees of three different skin services all wrapped up into one neat little package.
The secret to unlocking these additional benefits is in using the higher-quality laser wavelengths of either YAG or Alex, and the benefits are more than just skin deep. The laser works on the surface of the skin to remove old sun damage (like freckles and discoloration), shrinks pore size and also helps to even out your skin tone – and that’s just what you see on the surface with the naked eye! Beneath the skin’s surface, the laser penetrates deep down into the dermis and heats up the lower layers of tissue. This heating stimulates the production of new collagen, which is a very important factor that keeps the skin tight and plump. Overall, the quality laser hair removal that we perform here at Clarify improves the quality of your skin at every layer. Here’s how:
Skin rejuvenation is simply the process of removing damage from the skin’s surface. This layer of skin is known as the epidermis. Since this is the layer that is exposes to all the elements, surface damage to the epidermis accumulates over time. Pollution, accumulated skin cells, and the natural aging process all contribute to dull-looking, aged skin. However, the single biggest contributor to surface damage is exposure to sun, and San Antonio is both blessed and cursed with abundant sunshine. Years of wearing a bikini, laying out in the sun, floating the river, and even walking around Fiesta events without sunscreen leads to discoloration, sun spots and freckles.
Fortunately, laser hair removal improves the texture of the skin by lasering away sun spots and evening skin tone. After as few as six treatments, you will be able to see a noticeable improvement. Your skin will not only be smooth and hair free, but also smooth in texture and tone as well!
Hair follicles live in the dermis layer of the skin, which is the middle layer of your skin. Laser energy penetrates into this layer searching for hair follicles. As the energy is absorbed by the shaft of the hair, it pulses into the follicle, rendering it dormant. Aside from housing your hair follicles, the dermis is also where your skin stores collagen. Collagen is what gives our skin support and elasticity. When collagen breaks down as we age and our body naturally produces less of it, wrinkles appear.
If the benefits above aren’t enough to get excited about laser hair removal at Clarify, consider this. Laser wavelengths, especially YAG, penetrate into the layers of the skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles and prevent them from ever appearing to begin with. After we reach age 25, our bodies produce less collagen and the collagen we have begins its long process of breaking down. The safe levels of heat produced with laser hair removal stimulates your body’s production of collagen, resulting in more supple, tighter, and younger looking skin that will last for months. Some clients even continue to see improvement in their skin’s tightness and appearance for up to six months after their last treatment.
