What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses carefully controlled laser energy to remove unwanted hair from various areas of the body. The heat from the energy destroys hair follicles in the skin, disrupting the hair growth, and sometimes even eliminating it altogether. It is commonly used to treat hair growth on the face, chest, legs, arms, underarms, stomach, and bikini line. However, it can be used in other areas as well.
How Does It Work?
Laser hair removal targets the melanin pigment that is stored deep within the hair follicle. Using laser energy, this area heats up, damaging the follicle. As a result of this, the follicle is destroyed, therefore minimizing the hair growth or stopping it in its tracks for a longer amount of time. It’s important to understand that results vary and every situation is different, but multiple treatment sessions are generally needed in order to achieve the best results.
Is Laser Hair Removal Suitable for Everyone?
Most people who are interested in laser hair removal tend to qualify for treatments. However, a consultation is required ahead of time in order to make sure the treatment is safe for you. Generally speaking, healthy adults who are sick and tired of removing hair every day tend to make great candidates for the treatment. After evaluating your health and medical history, we can determine if the treatment is right for you.
How Many Treatment Sessions are Typically Needed?
This can be dependent on the area that is being treated, among other factors. Our professional will recommend to you the best course of action for your treatment. Typically, though, treatments are spaced a set amount of time apart. For more aggressive hair growth, more treatments may be needed. Between treatments, other hair removal techniques like shaving can be used. However, it’s important to consult with our professional to find out which techniques to avoid during your treatment regimen.
