Removing unwanted hair is one of the most tedious beauty tasks that most women and men engage in. But you can free yourself from the need to remove unwanted hair by undergoing laser hair removal. This treatment is helping a growing number of men and women throw away their razors and engage in more productive activities. The procedure is safe and effective at removing unwanted hair after a series of treatment sessions.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
The procedure involves the use of a laser to target individual hair follicles for destruction. The amazing level of precision offered by this treatment allows us to target only hair follicles producing unwanted hair, while leaving surrounding skin tissue intact. Since we are affecting only unwanted hair, your healing time will be extremely minimal. In fact, most patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately after their hair removal procedure.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
We use carefully controlled laser energy, which destroys the hair follicle and ultimately prevents it from growing unwanted hair. When we do this enough times, we can remove all unwanted hair follicles and perhaps even prevent the future growth of unwanted hair in the treatment zone. However, it’s important to note that results vary based on a number of factors.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Patients typically require a series of laser hair removal treatment sessions. This is because individual hairs grow in phases, and not all hairs happen to be in the same phase at the same time. Since the laser can only target the hair shaft, hair follicles in their resting phases cannot be affected. Multiple treatment sessions allow us to catch each hair follicle in its growth phase.
