Laser hair removal permanently removes unwanted hair. When applied to the skin surface, the laser energy penetrates deeply to reach the hair follicles below. When the pigment in these follicles absorbs the laser energy, the follicles die and can’t produce hair.
The laser energy has no effect on the surface skin, so you don’t have to worry about damage to surrounding tissues. After several sessions, all of your hair follicles in the treated areas become inactive. You get smooth skin and can forget about having to shave, wax, or tweeze ever again.
Men and women benefit from laser hair removal just about anywhere that unwanted hair grows. Common treatment areas include the following:
Your skin looks smooth and doesn’t have to endure razor bumps or clogged pores caused by hair removal. The laser energy also evens out your skin tone so that it looks smoother and healthier than ever.
Laser hair removal feels as though tiny rubber bands are snapping against your skin. Most people tolerate the sessions well and enjoy the cooling gel and ice packs applied immediately after treatment.
The laser also has a built-in cooling device that helps ease any discomfort during your session.
You’ll see a notable reduction in hair growth after just one session. It takes several sessions for you to become completely hair-free, however. Hair grows in cycles, and each follicle is in a different stage during treatment.
Only hair follicles in the growth stage are destroyed during a laser hair removal session. Therefore, you need several sessions to catch all the hair follicles out of their dormant phase.
Laser hair removal offers permanent results. If any hair does grow back, it’s much thinner and lighter than before treatment. If you need touch-ups, schedule an additional session.
