Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure in which we direct a laser to destroy hair follicles producing unwanted hair. This treatment has helped liberate many people from the time-consuming activity of waxing, plucking, and shaving. Just a few laser treatments are all that you need to permanently remove unwanted hair in places like your face, underarms, legs, or bikini area.
How It Works
We use a laser to target hair follicles for destruction when they are producing unwanted hair. The thermal energy transmitted by the laser is absorbed by melanin, a pigment that gives hair its color. This will lead to the destruction of the hair follicle and prevent it from growing hair in the future.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Anyone wishing to rid themselves of cumbersome body hair in a variety of areas may well be eligible for this treatment. Ideal candidates also harbor realistic expectations about this process in terms of what it can accomplish.
Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Right before your hair removal procedure, your hair in the treatment area will be trimmed down to just above your skin’s surface. The laser equipment will then be adjusted based upon your hair color, thickness, and location, as well as your skin color. We then direct laser energy into hair follicles, destroying them.
You may need several treatment sessions for the permanent removal of unwanted hair because of the way that individual hairs grow. Each hair has its own growth and resting phase. Some of your hairs will be and their growth phase at the time of treatment, while others are in their resting phase. Those in the resting phase do not have a hair present for laser targeting. By undergoing multiple treatment sessions, we can ensure that we treat all hair when it happens to be in its growth phase.
