Tired of dealing with unwanted hair? Laser hair removal is an effective way for patients to bypass the hassle of shaving, waxing and tweezing and achieve effective, long-lasting hair removal results. Why Choose Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures undergone in the United States today. And it’s no wonder why — this treatment allows patients to enjoy smooth, hair-free skin in their desired treatment area without having to undergo daily difficulties of shaving, tweezing, and waxing routines. And unlike these methods of hair removal, laser hair removal is actually safer for the skin because it targets the hair follicle instead of the surface of the skin.
This procedure can be used to eliminate unwanted hair from nearly any area of the body, including the:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
How Does it Work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting hair growth at its source — the hair follicle. During a laser hair removal treatment, beams of laser light are aimed at the patient’s desired treatment area. This light passes through the uppermost layer of the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle as heat. Once a hair follicle has absorbed enough heat, it ruptures and can no longer produce hair. Because all the follicles in the treatment area can not be addressed in a single treatment session, multiple sessions must be undergone for patients to see long-lasting improvements in their hair growth.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
The amount of time that each laser hair removal takes depends on the size and location of the patient’s desired treatment area. Because the laser energy used during this procedure can heat up the surface of the skin, laser hair removal is a fairly uncomfortable procedure. Fortunately, after a series of treatment sessions, many patients achieve long-lasting results and do not need to undergo additional treatments.
