What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal soothes and smooths all areas of the body from your upper lip, face, underarms, bikini line, arms, legs, chest, back, and anywhere else that you may bare without hair.
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
If you are tired of constantly having to remove body hair through shaving, waxing, plucking, or other temporary methods, laser hair removal can have huge benefits. For about 90 percent of patients, this hair loss lasts permanently after 3 to 5 sessions.
Other benefits of laser hair removal include its precision, since groups of hair can be targeted without touching surrounding skin, and its speed, as hair follicles can be disabled very rapidly. Upper lip and face hair can be removed in a matter of minutes, while larger areas like the legs, chest, or back can take an hour or less.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal works best on dark hair, which contains the pigment melanin. Light from the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and converted into energy and heat. As the heat radiates outward, it instantly disables or destroys the surrounding hair follicles. As the follicles are destroyed, hair falls out.
The hair growth cycle goes through 3 stages, including active, transitional, and dormant. Laser hair removal is effective on hair follicles while they are in the active stage. At any given time, only a portion of the hair being targeted will be in the active growth phase, which is why you will need multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
