How does laser hair removal work?
In the hair removal process, a laser emits a specific beam of light at a wavelength that is targeted at the center of the hair follicle or the hair itself. The light then transforms into heat energy, which consequently disables the hair follicle so it does not continue to produce hair.
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
- Provides a more permanent solution to waxing, electrolysis, and shaving
- Safer and cleaner than other hair removal methods
- Leaves your skin feeling silky smooth.
- No need to grow out hairs before your next treatment
- Quick and effective
What can you expect during the treatment process?
Most people experience very little discomfort during a laser hair removal procedure. In the event that you do experience a slight pinching sensation, a topical numbing cream can be applied to the designated area before the treatment. The length of the procedure will depend on the area you are having hair removed from. As a general guide, the process can take between 60 to 90 minutes when treating areas on the back and/or the legs. An upper lip or the tops of ears may require between 8 and 10 minutes.
Who is laser hair removal suitable for?
Laser hair removal is for anyone who wishes to remove hair from a stubborn area. However, the ideal candidate for this procedure has hair that is darker than their skin color. Patients with light hair colors, including blonde, gray, red, and white hair, are not candidates for laser hair removal treatments as their hair follicles lack the melanin that attracts the laser energy.
What results can you expect from laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal requires between three and seven treatments to start experiencing visible results and you’ll need a touch-up twice a year to maintain significant improvement.
