Millions of people have undergone laser hair removal procedures to banish the need to constantly remove unwanted hair with methods like tweezing, waxing, or shaving. Think of how much time you would have available if you no longer had to engage in these tedious activities.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a treatment in which we use a laser to target hair follicles. The laser energy will destroy these hair follicles to prevent them from growing hair. Known as melanin, the pigment in your hair will absorb the laser energy. This makes the treatment best suited for those with dark hair, although those with lighter colored hair may still benefit. Ultimately, we can help determine if you would make a good candidate for this procedure at your consultation.
What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
This convenient treatment offers numerous benefits, including an amazing level of precision. The laser equipment allows us to target individual hair follicles and leave nearby skin intact. Since less tissue is affected by the treatment, less recovery time is needed.
A laser hair removal procedure is also extremely fast. We can treat many hair follicles simultaneously. An area the size of a quarter can be treated in only one second. Treatment sessions normally take well under one hour to complete.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
A series of quick treatments is all that you may need to permanently remove or reduce unwanted hair from places like your face, legs, arms, underarms, and bikini line.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Patients typically need multiple hair removal sessions to remove the hair. The reason is that each of your hair follicles grows in staggered growth phases. At the time of your treatment, one hair follicle may be in a growth phase while another is in a resting phase. Only a hair follicle in a growth phase can be treated.
