How much time would you have available if you no longer needed to go through the hassle of removing unwanted hair? Laser hair removal is a safe treatment that takes advantage of a laser system to target hair follicles for destruction, preventing them from growing hair in the future. Its proven track record of safety and effectiveness has made it one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed inside the United States.
The laser hair removal procedure has helped countless people unburden themselves of the need of plucking, waxing, or shaving to remove unwanted hair. Some of the most common areas of treatment for hair removal are the legs, face, bikini area, and underarms.
How It Works
We use a laser system to direct focused light energy into melanin, the pigment that produces your hair color. Once this energy is absorbed, it destroys the hair follicle and prevents it from growing hair. After a series of treatment sessions, you could no longer grow hair in the treatment area.
You should avoid prolonged exposure to UV radiation for a set amount of time before and after your laser hair removal procedure. This is because exposure to sunlight can limit the effectiveness of your treatment or lead to complications after it.
Before your treatment begins, we will make sure to adjust the laser equipment to match the specifications of your situation. We can then transmit laser energy into hair follicles, which destroys them and prevents them from growing hair in the future.
Again, you’ll most likely need multiple treatment sessions for the desired results to be achieved. Every individual hair follicle has its own growth cycle that it is going through at any given time. By undergoing multiple treatments, you are ensuring that every hair will eventually be exposed to the laser when it is in a growing cycle.
Ideal candidates for laser hair removal are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results. It’s important to keep in mind that results vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
