Let’s face it. Removing unwanted hair is just one of those activities that becomes extremely tedious over time. You shave, wax, or pluck to remove it, only to have to start the process all over again. Wouldn’t it be nice to reclaim all that time and spend it on more enjoyable activities? Thanks to laser hair removal, this is possible.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed within the United States. It offers a safe and convenient method of removing unwanted hair in areas like your face, arms, legs, underarms, and bikini zone. A series of quick treatments is all that is needed for the permanent removal or reduction of unwanted hair in the treatment area.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Laser energy is directed into melanin, the part of your hair that produces its color. The hair follicle absorbs this energy and is destroyed by it, so it can no longer produce unwanted hair. Repeat this enough times, and you could have a bare area that no longer requires plucking, shaving, or waxing. However, it’s important to note that results vary.
Why Do I Need Multiple Treatment Sessions?
The reason is that each hair follicle will be in an individual growth phase at any given time. So when you receive your first laser hair removal treatment, hair follicles in a growth phase will be treated, while those in a dormant phase cannot. This is because hair follicles in a growth phase have a hair present for targeting. Those in a dormant phase have shed their hair and cannot be treated until they enter a growth phase.
What Should I Expect During My Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Our technician will adjust the laser equipment to match the needed specifications for your individual situation. Laser energy will then be transmitted into the hair follicles, destroying them and preventing the growth of unwanted hair.
